I was very pleased with the job that XXX Landscape & Lawncare did with the first project I gave them. So much so that I plan on contracting them to do additional projects through out the summer. I have already referred them to family members. G. French

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!!!

My project involved a lot of brick rework. It took a little longer than expected, but Tom would not call it done until he and I were both happy with the job. He also went above and beyond (calling six nurseries and driving almost an hour away) to find the exact flowers that I was hoping for. I am extremely happy with the finished project! He and his staff are friendly and professional. I would highly recommend hiring Grays Outdoor Services.

We had the pleasure of working with Mike Walrath on a project to build a wall to enclose an area for our mother. He answered our call promptly, gave an accurate estimate and completed the work in a timely manner. He is an excellent craftsman, was always on time and very sensitive to our mother's needs. We highly recommend Mike and would hire him again without question.

Hector and his crew did an excellent job on our concrete patio. He spent time with us to get our best design layout, a stamped pattern that we love and helped us pick out colors that go well with our brick house. Hector and his crew are very hard workers that take pride in their work. I would highly recommend Hector for stamped concrete work

David has performed many major and minor construction repairs and improvements for me over the years in my various homes. He is all things you hope for in a contractor; fair prices, high quality work, professional, trustworthy, and extremely knowledgeable. I've recommended him to many friends, neighbors, and colleagues and they have never been disappointed. He is passionate about his work and it shows in the end product.

J. Winters has done a fabulous job with my projects. Justin started my project with an installation of flooring and two doors. Due to Justin's reasonable rates and excellent work ethics, he completed various projects including electrical and plumbing. I am so pleased with his work and will definitely use him in the near future. I would recommend J. Winters services for any projects you may have.

Scott and his partner did a remodeling job for us. They did the demolition, then did the drywall, painted and added a tub surround and new sink vanity. They installed a new light fixture, too. Then, they put in a new ceiling in our kitchen using drywall, painting, and added a new light fixture. We would hire them again! They did a great job at a reasonable price. My olny suggestion is that they should change the name of their company. They do construction. My sister was concerned because the name says Scotty Mobile Repair. They are more of a construction company and I am sure that they can fix a mobile phone, but we were very pleased with the work they did on an old 1922 home.

As was popular many years ago, we had a powder room that was carpeted, and a master bath floor that was half carpet/half old, slippery, shiny tile. Not desirable today! We hired Mike to remove all carpeting and existing old shiny floor tile, and then redo the floors with new tile. We had him work on both projects during the same time frame. The results can be seen in the photos below. Both rooms now have an updated, clean look that we love. My husband and I both found Mike very easy to work with. We communicated often from the initial estimate all the way to project completion. For example, he will pick up materials for you, or let you know what materials are needed and you can gather them yourself. He will listen to your ideas for tile layout, grout colors, whatever...and also offer some ideas of his own. He communicates every step of the way. The point here is he wants the project to be as you envisioned, and for you to love it at completion. We do! We would happily recommend him.

Nathan came out to my residence and viewed the projects I wanted done. He gave a quote on the projects quickly. We agreed upon the costs and he took a down payment and didn't ask for the balance until the project was complete. Nathan and his crew worked on the weekend and after-hours to get the project done. I would definately recommed him for any construction projects a home owner may have. Nathan took down the existing pool deck and rebuilt a new one. He also replaced the wooden front hand rail with a metal one that is cemented in to code.

I got to know this company this past summer when I called the owner to inspect several properties in Detroit for me. I then had them do some paint and renovation work, which I'm completely satisfied. I certainly recommend this company for all kinds of construction work.

Caselli Stone remolded my fireplace. Joe and his crew were outstanding. Very professional in all phases of the project. They were extremely clean and the workmanship was outstanding. They also were on time and finished the job on budget. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Caselli Stone for any future projects.

Rafi came by really fast and gave us his professional opinion about our projects. He spent time with us talking it through and he started the job the next day. In two days his crew finished and painted the garage, kitchen- hall way and nursery. Highly recommended. We will hire again for future projects.

I'm really glad I went with Propaint Construction for our bathroom project. It turned out absolutely magnificent! Enea is a really great guy that you can trust and has brilliant ideas. Anyone that comes over our house asks who did the work. He even helped us out with our shower door enclosure and the mirrors. The minute he took over the project, we rest assured while we sat back and watched our walk-in closet and small bathroom turn into something so stunning and unique. I was so happy that I referred them to my best friend and would refer him to anyone else. These guys are definitely your best bet!

Bill and Steve did a spectacular job installing my curtain rods and curtains in my apartment. They were on time and keep me updated as the project went along. I would gladly work with them again. Did I mention they were a hoot to work with! :)

Mr Fischer was very professional and responsive. Unlike many contractors he kept his word as well as his timeline on deliver of the project. My project came out better than expected and my family is truly happy with the results. I will be hiring Mr Fischer again soon.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Why should you hire a contractor?

Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the 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.  

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.
