Fair estimate. Repair done in a timely manner. Need rain to make sure leak is fixed. But I'm completely satisfied with Mr. McKenna's work. Asked him for estimates for 2 other projects. Would highly recommend.

Elsayed helped replace a leaky outdoor hose faucet. He came 15 minutes early, worked diligently and finished in under an hour. He was very professional, courteous, and cleaned up after his work. He was knowledgeable about plumbing and let me watch his work, while explaining to me what he was doing to help educate me. His prices were extremely reasonable. I would definitely hire him for another plumbing project. Thank you Elsayed.

I hired Doug to repair our patio in the backyard. He was terrific to work with from my initial communication with him through the estimate process and the actual work. His quality of work was excellent. Indeed, his fixes were better than when the patio was originally built. I would hire him again.

I've hired Erik on numerous occasions. The initial time was for furniture construction in my apartment. He was not only skilled, but efficient, honest and trustworthy. I had never hired anyone to do any work like this before - I highly recommend him for anyone, but especially someone unsure or new to hiring outside help. Subsequently, I've contracted Erik for additional projects and also for larger remodeling and construction work through my company. I really cannot say enough good things. You won't be disappointed.

ER construction is the best contractor that I have ever dealt w. We own a home in CT that we rent out - had some rain damage. I reached out to over 8 contractors and nobody would return my call. Those who did gave me outrages quotes. We live in TX and ER construction was reasonable and worked with me! He worked through all the issues we had and he was able to handle them all! He repaired the roof, he replaced and repaired walls! He did an amazing job. I have some upgrades that we are planning on doing to the home and ER construction will be the only contractor I will work with! I highly recommend him and will share photos

I was very happy with the work that Joe did installing bifold closet doors in my home. He gave me a reasonable estimate, arrived promptly at the pre-arranged time and completed the work within a reasonable time frame. Afterwards, he cleaned everything up and brought the unused pieces and parts to the trash. And the work was done exactly as I had hoped. I cant think of any way the experience could have been improved, since Joe did everything well.

I hired HD construction to repair my deck and install trim and lattice around the perimeter. Heraldo was extremely responsive and was able to schedule me in shortly after he reviewed and quoted the job. The overall result was great and I was very happy with the work. I would definitely recommend HD construction and would hire again for future projects.

I called them and they came in quickly to give me an estimate, but they don't seem to appreciate that I am waiting on them for the estimate. If you don't intend giving me an estimate, say so!

.RMPaolino Construction was contracted to remodel my unfinished basement and install baseboard heat throughout my house. Mr. Paolino and his team did an outstanding job planning and accomplishing this difficult job. The work was scheduled so that it caused me very little inconvenience and all phases of the job were completed on schedule. All of the work and construction materials were of professional grade, and the overall price tag was more than reasonable. I intend to hire Mr. Paolino to do other work on my property. Because my house is 114 years old, many adjustments and accommodations had to be made in order to accomplish everything I wanted. Nevertheless, Mr. Paolino worked around all of the obstacles and got everything done that I requested. And it looks great. I highly recommend his services. The overall project included the items listed below. 1. Cleared the basement of all junk and debris. 2. Removed the old boiler from the basement and 12 radiators and pipes throughout the house. 3. Removed all of the old steam piping, old excess electrical wires and unused gas lines running through the basement. 4. Removed all artificial walls, ceilings and floors throughout the basement. 5. Installed a brand new modern boiler and enclosed it with walls with sliding doors for access. 6. Installed baseboard heaters throughout the three-story house. 7. Replaced numerous copper water pipes with fiberglass pipes and insulated the copper piping that was not replaced. 8. Replaced seven basement windows with new windows. 9. Restored the worn brick walls of the basement 10. Framed the entire basement and installed insulation. 11. Installed and painted dry wall throughout the basement. 12. The electrical circuit box was replaced and electrical and cable ready outlets were installed all around the walls. The electrical circuit breaker, gas meter and water meter were enclosed in a small room with an access door. 13. A utility area was created on a raised platform where a washer, dryer, and sink were installed. 14. The basement floor was covered with an industrial strength carpet. 15. A drop ceiling with large panels with embedded florescent lights was installed.

Great job at a great price. I love the retaining wall and concrete walk Fernando and the team at Disere construction did at my home. I needed a retaining wall to keep water from running into my driveway, even in the dead of winter they came out and built more than just a functioning wall, they created art! We couldn't be happier!

I have found Sean Brophy to be very professional, kind, and helpful. He brings a great deal of experience and will offer his opinion on what you want done. But will listen to your ideas as well. He keeps his appointments and does what he says he will do. Over all I would recommend Brophy Construction without a moments delay.

I can't say enough about Jon and his work. He is easy to work with, coordinates his work well with plumbers and electricians and will notify you of issues that should be corrected. He also reviews the budget and we did agree to an update based on some additional work we requested and some that he suggested. Super guy and skilled craftsman. I would recommend him for any construction project.

Before I tell you why I'm giving Tom a 5 star review it might mean more if I share some of my background. I'm a retired Marine and spent 20 years in the construction utilities field, for 5 years following that I was the Structural Superintendent for a major University, and now I am a Facilities Manager. I have spent several years hiring and firing contractors in all trades to include painting and plastering. I would consider Tom to easily be in the top 5 of all contractors I have hired in the past. I base this not only on his talent but his work ethic and attention to detail. I contacted Tom after I let another contractor go when he struggled to complete my ceiling after 3 days and it still looked terrible. Tom came in on Thursday and explained to my wife and I what he could do. We set up the ceiling work for the next day and said we would see how it goes before we decide on the walls. Tom came in, covered the work area, and got busy. Before he even finished the ceiling I hired him for the walls. It was obvious he knew what he was doing. He finished the ceiling in 1 day then came back on Saturday, worked through lunch and completed the walls in 1 day. I will be hiring Tom again for future work and if you are in need of a plasterer you better snatch him up before people catch on and he gets tied up for 2 months like the rest of the best. Tom did an excellent job to minimize the mess by covering the floors and door but this is plastering so it doesn't matter how good you are it will get on things you don't want it on so don't hold that against him. His prices are fair so check him out. Thanks Tom, see you soon!

This was one of the best Home Remodeling experiences we have ever had. We worked with Ely Jimenez of Del Cid Design and Construction. Ely does the best workmanship we have ever seen. He is wonderfully communicative and professional. He provided us with photographs of every single detail that he worked with. He was very flexible, patient, and creative. He transformed our old-fashioned bathroom into a beautiful, modern bathroom. He somehow fit a large, working washer and dryer into a closet. He is an excellent general contractor who works well with multiple sub-contractors. We 100% recommend Del Cid Design and Construction for any home remodeling task, no matter how big or small.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a general contractor?

When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

What do construction project managers do?

Construction project managers help in all stages of your construction project, starting from the very first step. Typically paid a percentage of a total project cost, they are part of the design and planning process and help ensure seamless communication between the design parties and the construction team. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, their scope of work includes preparing cost estimates, budgets and work timetables; interpreting and explaining contracts and technical information to other professionals; reporting work progress and budget to clients; collaborating with architects, engineers and other construction pros; selecting subcontractors and scheduling and coordinating their tasks; responding to work delays, emergencies and other problems; and ensuring compliance with legal requirements, building and safety codes, and other regulations.

The work of construction project managers may seem very similar to that of general contractors, but there are some critical differences. One difference is that, unlike most general contractors, project managers are not engaged in the actual construction — they are onsite overseeing the work of subcontractors. Another key difference is that project managers are hired during the design phase, while general contractors are hired after plans have been made. The project manager is generally paid a percentage of the total project cost, while the general contractor is more typically paid according to the bid they gave to build your project.  

How do I find out if a contractor is licensed?

It’s important to know if your project requires work by a licensed professional, as licensing laws can vary by state, locality, and job details. You can find general licensing information online at the government websites that handle occupational licensing for a given profession in your state or location. Some states designate a project cost over which you have to hire a licensed contractor. To find qualified licensed contractors, search your state’s licensing board. For example, in California, the Department of Consumer Affairs operates a searchable database through the Contractors State License Board. In some states, contracting licenses are provided at a regional level. You can find links to specific databases on BRB Publications’ Occupational Licensing page. Red flags that a contractor may not be licensed or may be providing an expired or false license number are unreasonably low bids or a request for complete payment upfront.

How much does a project manager charge per hour?

You may choose to hire a construction project manager for your residential or commercial project. For the hands-on homeowner who wants to be involved in home construction but isn’t comfortable hiring subcontractors, a construction project manager can oversee these relationships and supervise labor. Typically, construction project managers charge a fee that is a flat percentage of the total construction project cost. This may range from 10 percent to 15 percent, depending on the company and the services they provide. This means a $30,000 home remodel project would have a construction project management fee of $3,000-$4,500. Hiring a construction project manager generally precludes the markup on subcontractor labor charged by a general contractor. The drawback to this choice is that, unlike a general contractor, the construction project manager won’t be financially responsible for the work of the subcontractors. For larger projects, you may hire a construction project manager who will also hire a general contractor. This provides the benefits of the general contractor along with the management services of the project manager, who will be on board from the beginning. The construction project manager will be involved in the design phase and work with the architects and the building crew, facilitating a smoother overall process.

How do you choose a commercial general contractor?

A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.
