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.

Had my kitchen and bathroom done over. Pino construction workers were very professional, di an outstanding job and actually cleaned up after themselves, which was very surprising compared to other contractors I had in my house. I would highly recommend them for any type of construction or remodeling.

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.

We hired Russell to build a new newel post for our stairwell and install a new railing and spindles. We had sawed off the old newel post during a home construction project a year ago and did not have a picture or materials from the prior post. Russell was able to create a beautiful newel post from scratch which looks better than anything we could have bought in store. He was also committed to ensuring that the style of the post, railing, and spindles matched with our house. At our request, Russell returned to adjust something according to our wishes and even made suggestions to make the whole thing look even better. Russell was professional, honest, and came in at a great price. We appreciated his patience and willingness to deliver a product that we loved. We enjoyed working with Russell and love our new stair railing and hope to use him for future house projects!

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!

Luiz is a very talented and skilled contractor. He remodeled both our master bathroom and our daughter's bathroom, and helped us make smart decisions on things like materials, design, installation options, etc. Luiz is extremely honest, courteous, friendly, and a perfectionist when it comes to the job. He also communicates in detail his construction plans, electrical, etc in a way that is easy to understand for someone like me who has no background knowledge in construction. He also saved us from costly expenses down the road by finding a mold problem before it become a major problem. We were lucky to have his expertise on the job, as I'm sure many contractors wouldn't have taken the extra precautions to find and treat the mold or they would've charged me thousands of dollars for a small problem. I would give Luiz 10 stars if I could, he's that amazing & you will love whatever project he works on!

We had our roof done with them. The owner of this business is a wonderful man. They responded to my initial call immediately and got an appointment within a few days for a free estimate. They came on time and the estimate was emailed to me within a few days. We decided to go with Rainstone construction because of their responsiveness. On the day of work they showed up on time, worked quickly and cleaned up after finishing. We found them reliable, professional with reasonable pricing. We enjoyed working with them and will surely recommend Rainstone to our friends.

Edson was recommended to me by my neighbors and they showed me the nice work he had done on a big remodel in their home. He has done many projects for me over the past few years and communicates well, always arrives when he says he’ll be there, takes pride in his work. Best of all, he is a pleasure to have around and is a good person whom you can trust. I strongly recommend EM Remodeling.

Marco and his team helped us to finish our basement. Even though it took little longer than expected, at the end we are happy with their service. Marco was very helpful, flexible and clearly explains every step in the process. His team already helped us on two other projects afterwards. We strongly recommend Bilmar Construction for your project.

Paul and his crew were very professional and respected our home. Weather played a role in delaying the project as this was started in the winter. Everything in the estimate was completed acceptably. I would not hesitate to have Paul do any further projects in our home

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.
