Julio was great to work with. I was in need of a subcontractor for a big drywall job and he was there to size up the job the next day and got it started immediately. The job was completed way before I thought it would be and the work quality was great. Very enjoyable guy to work with.

To Whom It May Concern: I write this letter in regard to Above All Construction as a general contractor. I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Jaurez on the renovation of our kitchen 2013. I can recommend him highly and without reservation. Mr. Jaurez was directly available throughout the entire process. He handled all communication personally; this made the entire project progress smoothly. Throughout the course of the renovation, Mr. Jaurez was a consummate professional. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the scale and cost of our project. He was absolutely clear in his record keeping. He managed the sub-contractors well, checking completed work and immediately following up with any touch ups needed. Our job was done with care and precision in a timely manner. We are truly enjoying our new kitchen! Penny and Bill Mills

Tim Kohner was great. He was hired to fix the mistakes caused by a subcontractor who said they were qualified to do trim work. Tim did an exceptional job and helped us stay on schedule with our remodeling project. We learned an expensive lesson on this job but now we know a qualified professional. Thanks Tim.

TDS came out to offer a free consultation on a kitchen remodel that was in the process of being botched by another contractor. Their insight and general knowledge helped tremendously in getting us back on our way and allowed us to tackle some extremely sticky situations. Did I mention this was all done for free?!? Really a stand-up, honest company and I would highly recommend TSD to anyone.

We wanted to take this time to say what a great job Tru-Build did on our bathroom remodel. Ryan and Tessa are an amazing duo to work with. Tessa met with us and discussed our bathroom options and provided us with an interior design session that let us narrow down everything from the heated towel bar to the drawer knobs. Tru-build provided a high-end luxury look at an affordable price. In fact, they blew the other bids out of the water. As my husband and I are working professionals and have pets, they were considerate of our needs during the construction process. Tessa was onsite to meet the subcontractors every day and made sure our house was in tip top shape during the construction. The custom built cabinetry and glass shower door turned out amazing. I am truly impressed with Ryan and Tessa as they kept us in the loop during the entire project. I highly recommend using Tru-Build for your next remodel project.

We originally contacted Cory for a bathroom remodel, but then changed the scope of the project and ended up creating a master suite with a 3/4 bathroom and walk-in closet. Cory was extremely knowledgeable and knew how to work with an older home like ours and did a great job maintaining its character while upgrading it. Costs, allowances and payment schedule are very clear. And while our project did get delayed slightly, this wasn't Cory's fault (but due to a subcontractor's schedule). Cory was often on the property, so we felt like a priority. He also helped us with things above and beyond our remodel (some door replacements, and helping when a tree fell on our garage and knocked out our power). We trust him and felt comfortable having around. His subcontractors were also very professional. We love the finished project and would readily work with Cory again in the future.

I hired Jeff to complete a bathroom remodel that I had started and didnt have time to finish. I did not know jeff prior to this and was given his name as a referral from a realtor I know. The project included electrical, plumbing, carpentry, tile and finish work. The bathroom is large, about 20 feet x 7 feet and includes a custome open shower that is 7 x 5 feet. Jeff quickly assessed the work and the subcontractors he would use to bid the job with him and provided a bid back to me within two weeks. Jeff also estimated the time it would take to complete the project and included it in the bid. The project went pretty much exactly to schedule, with Jeff and each of the subs completing the work when they needed in order for the next steps to start. Jeff was very responsive to email, text and phone calls all through out the project and proactive in contacting me as needed to maintain this schedule. In the end the quality of work provided was excellent on all accounts. Each sub and Jeff took pride in their work and it showed as the pieces were completed. Even though the electrical, plumbing and framing is all covered in the end they took the time to make it look great had it been left exposed. The project completed on time and on budget and I couldnt have been more pleased with the result. Thanks Jeff!

    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.  

    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.

    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.

    When should you hire a contractor?

    A few home remodeling projects can be done by an ambitious DIY-minded homeowner or local handyman, but many are best completed by a professional home renovation contractor. You should hire a contractor when you’re planning a large project that takes time, machinery or large tools, and several workers; a kitchen remodel, new bathroom or home addition will be most successful with a licensed, expert contractor at the helm. It’s particularly important to have a professional contractor on board for construction, electrical, plumbing and HVAC projects that require inspections to meet local building codes. Of course, you can hire a contractor for smaller projects, too, if you prefer to let an expert handle things like addition or removal of a wall, small framing projects, or anything that requires a permit.  

    You should hire a contractor when you’re ready to start a remodeling project and you have plans, a budget and a timeline for the work in hand, but before any remodeling work begins.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
