Nick did an amazing job!! I had several things that I needed done (bathtub knobs replaced and a couple of pieces of drywall repaired/replaced) and they were able to complete the job in a very reasonable amount of time. I would definitely recommend him for anyone that needs any type of electrical/plumbing/construction work done. I am planning on giving him a call in the winter when I want to have a bathroom installed in my basement. Thank you again for a job well done!!!

Zack was great to work with. Reasonably priced, great quality, and worked until the job was done and ensured that we were completely satisfied. We are having him bid another job already! Full siding, soffit, fascia, gutter, and small construction (added a window).

I have worked with Galvan construction twice and have been extremely happy with the quality of the work. Rodney is very experienced at what he does and I found him to be very intuitive to what I was looking for, which is so helpful to a new homeowner, such as myself. He is absolutely the first person I will call for my next project.

Staggers construction did a great job for us. We had several concrete companies out and they were the only one willing to tackle the job we had for a fair price. Ted was always keeping us informed of times he would be on the job and what would be done. He also started and completed the entire job in a timely manner. We would recommend giving them a call for your concrete, decking or any job around your home.

Procraft was literally the only contractor willing to help us with a DIY deck project gone wrong. Vince was great to work with, we provided him quite the jigsaw puzzle to fix and a very limited budget. Vince was very creative and resourceful in finding an affordable way to fix and finish our deck and it looks AMAZING! Outside of his brilliant carpentry skills, Vince was a great guy and a pleasure to work with. He communicated with us every step of the way, and even brought in our mail and packages as our mailbox was down for a few days! I have a 2 year old daughter so I am always skeptical about bringing new contractors around. By the end of our project my daughter said "i no want him to leave, i want him to stay". True testimony to his character. We will be hiring Vince and his team for all home improvement projects in the future!

My name is a Alicia. Me and my husband hired Southern Charm Construction to replace our roof after a grueling search amongst contractors and many estimates we decided to go with SCC. Their sales rep was very knowledgeable and explained what a roof needs and what it takes to maintain.. From the moment of the initial consultation over the phone to the visit from the rep to the installation to the finished product we are so very pleased to have had Southern charm apart of this experience with us.. Thank you so much for the professionalism and the painlessness of the entire project. We will only be having work done by SCC in the future and will be refering as many people as possible. Again thank you so much...

This was a great team of landscapers to work with. Job was completed as expected and even worked with me on a couple of unexpected snags due to neighbor problems. They were on time as scheduled, finished when promised and were communicative throughout the process.

From start to finish, Mike and his co-worker Nick were the ideal handymen. I had two projects: re-hanging some loose siding, and scraping/painting the front of a garage. Mike responded with a good quote for labor right away, and then he and Nick were able to start the very next morning. They showed up when promised and did both jobs efficiently and excellently. I couldn't be more happy, and I'll definitely use them on future projects.

Darryl did a great job on a new furnace install. He hauled off old furnace and duct work and installed new furnace and duct. The job took 2 days instead of 1 like he said, but Darryl was professional and he came back and installed a new digital thermostat in the house at his initiation, since the old one wasn't working properly.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.  

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 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.

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.
