We hired Bob to demo an odd room with a roof that was built in the middle of our loft. He’d estimated that it would be a two or three day job. As demos go, it’s hard to tell exactly until you get into it. Unfortunately, the structure was built to withstand a hurricane and was a much tougher job than expected. Everything was excessively nailed and had to be pounded out piece by piece. Yet, Bob finished in two days with everything hauled to the dump and the work area cleaned. He was on time and courteous and worked around my schedule. Before he could do the demo, we had to have the sprinkler system rerouted, and Bob was very accommodating with our start date. A hard worker, and I’d highly recommend him.

We hired Adam to remodel our kitchen and also build a new deck, and his work quality and efficiency far surpassed our expectations. Not only did Adam complete the project on time, he also managed to stay within budget, which was a daunting task considering the extent of our projects and our tight deadline. We are both first time home buyers and have no experience with a fixer upper house, but Adam easily won my trust when he gave me a quote and provided me with his action plan to deliver within my timeline. Adam was the only contractor out of the 6 others I called to give detailed breakdown of the costs. He also listened attentively to what I wanted. He really took the time and effort to understand what we expected from him and went above and beyond to make our visions become realities. I wouldn't have my dream kitchen without Adam's help. What I had was just a picture and a vague vision in my mind, but Adam guided me through the design process and executed with perfection! I had multiple projects going on at the time and he coordinated all of them so seamlessly, I was able to move into our new house and have a functional kitchen, something I didn't even think was possible. Adam and his crew always cleaned really well after their work, even my neighbors were impressed with the kind of care Adam had given to our property and needless to say, I've given my highest recommendation to Adam and pass along his contact to all my neighbors and friends. What I appreciate the most about Adam is his honesty, a rare trait to find in contractors I've dealt with. Adam delivers what he promises and he doesn't cut corners in his work. I just hope all the raving reviews wont get him too booked up for my future projects!

Baystate Group Associates recently finished our 750 sq foot basement and the end result far exceeded our expectations. Victor stayed engaged with my wife and I daily throughout the project and kept us updated on the progress daily. I don't think the basement would have come out as it did if Victor didn't make several great recommendations along the way in regards to the basement layout, fixtures, colors, and other specific details. The team's that were at our house at various times throughout the job made sure that everything was clean and spotless at the end of everyday. I highly recommend VIctor and Baystate Group Associates for any refinished basement, remodeling, or building needs.

We hired Joe to redo our old stairs in our home. They needed A LOT of work and he did an unbelievable job- custom fitting each stair, working with me to determine a color and even increasing the size of the stairs to give us a bit more room. He was extremely respectful of our home - very neat and clean, always closing doors when going in and out, etc. Reallt appreciated his hard work and would definitely recommend him for any of your home jobs.

    Leo, and crew framed out a 30x50 1st floor deck for a new custom barn house. Started on time, Did what he said he would do, and the end product was what it was expected to be at a fair price. I added a little more work, for just a little bit more money and it all worked out great. I have more work to do, and Leo and Crew will be invited back for more of the same experience. I would refer Leo to frame anything needing this type of work

    My husband and I had just built our new home and we were looking for a painting company to take care of the interior. We had heard about Brothers of the Brush through a friend of ours who is a contractor and decided to give them a call. Not only were they very friendly and professional they definitely exceeded our expectations. A close friend of ours is in the process of building his new home and we have already recommended Brothers of the Brush.

    I first contacted RJC Building about rebuilding some exterior decks. He was responsive and provided a quote quickly. In the meantime, I needed someone to rebuild an interior stair and complete some insulation/sheet rock repair and painting. Again, Ray was responsive and easy to work with. He evaluated the situation quickly, gave me a quote and worked with me to make sure he used the materials we wanted. Whenever I needed clarification or had questions, he was quick to respond. Ray's work is very high quality, and he is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend RJC Building and I look forward to working with Ray and his team on future projects.

    On professionalism: Curley was very knowledgeable. He knew exactly what to do and how to fix issues around my condo. Not only is he an expert in his industry, he has a lot of connections to help with other issues. For example, my home needed plumbing, electrical, and a bunch of other things. He knew great contacts to fix those issues. I am an impatient individual and I can say I feel confident in Curley to get things done at my speed. He is responsive at all hours and days. He never seems 'too busy' for me even when he is with other projects. On work quality: Fantastic! I couldn't ask for better. Every crack, hole, patch or imperfection was covered up and looks like new. I am not one to let the small things go and he lived up to my expectations. Colors are evenly distributed. There were no uneven patches especially in the corners of the walls. On behavior: Very easy to work with or should I say was able to deal with me. I know I am a meticulous and stressed individual and if he can deal with me, he can make any customer happy. Curley is honest and respectful. He genuinely wants to help you not to rip you off. His prices are affordable. I ended up giving him extra for all the work he put in because his work was worth it. Also, he and his guys will clean up after themselves so you don't have to worry about a mess after they are done! Highly recommended. Honestly, don't look anywhere else. Curley&Lad's is your go-to.

    Martin at Emesets Construction completed a VERY difficult spray foam insulation project on my home. I have a 6500 sq ft home with a large and multifaceted roof. Mass Save had previously installed blown-in cellulose that didn’t do much to lower my energy costs or prevent ice dams. What the blown-in cellulose did do was make navigating the attic space much more difficult. Martin’s quote was approx. 10-20% less than other spray foam vendors…yet he was more knowledgeable. I decided to hire Martin not because of price but I liked the fact that his company wasn’t too big and he would be on-site doing the installation work himself. Spray foam installation requires a highly trained individual that’s willing to take their time…and not be rushed. Martin made sure he took the time to get every spaced filled with more foam then we had even agreed on. Martin had to crawl into small holes that would lead into other roof areas. Martin and his crew cleaned up each night and made sure our family had little to no disruption. I highly recommend Martin and Emesets Construction. Martin is a man of his word. He completed the job with a smile on his face even thought it was probably a more difficult job than he anticipated. The best thing about the spray foam is that I haven’t needed to turn the heat on even though it’s been below 50 degrees at night. It’s really incredible how well the spray foam is working. I not only recommend Martin…I recommend getting spray foam. Best of luck to everyone…and a big thank you to Martin for a great job.

        We were looking for a contractor who was willing to do a smaller project for my elderly parents which involved giving their kitchen a makeover/update with a limited budget. Not only was Brant willing, but he gave their kitchen a facelift that made it look so bright and refreshed from the old, dated dark kitchen it was and freshened up the dining room as well! Most contractors will try to convince you to do more, but Brant knew there was a limited budget and worked within that budget to accomplish a fresh new look. We were so pleased with the results that we will be using BRG Construction Services to construct a first floor bathroom project that is necessary because of my Mom's physical limitations so she can remain in her home. So if you have a project be it small or large, you can feel confident that BRG Construction Services will do a great job at a fair price.

          Q & A

          Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

          How do architects work?

          Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

          When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

          How do architects charge for their services?

          According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.
