We had a wonderful experience working with Don! He was dependable and professional throughout the entire process. His estimate was done in a timely manner and was very reasonable. He did quality work throughout our house, including tiling two bathrooms, replacing baseboards, and a variety of drywall work. He was very knowledgable and did a beautiful job. He went above and beyond and we would definitely call Don to come back in the future!

Jacob provided a good estimate to install 10 yards of decorative rock. His crew was careful to not damage the lawn and did an excellent job cleaning up when they finished. I will definitely use them for future landscaping projects.

He did a great job. Responded promptly, arrived on time, explained what the problem was and fixed it. And even reduced his estimate once he realized the job wasn't quite as complicated as he had originally assumed. Would certainly hire him again.

I hired Studio Rebus to replace two doors that were kicked in during a home invasion. Kel created a very detailed budget for the project that my insurance company accepted without question, even though they had originally estimated the project to be much less (not realizing our doors were custom sized). Like most home improvement projects, this one took longer than originally projected, but I would definitely hire Studio Rebus again, for several reasons. First, Kel is responsive. No phone call or email went unreturned. He communicated promptly and thoroughly at every step of the process. Second, Kel's very thorough estimate left no stone unturned, so while our project got delayed because of supplier issues, there were never any surprises in expense. Third, Kel loves this work, and it shows. Unlike handymen I've hired in the past, Kel is very knowledgeable about houses, and lovingly pays attention to form and function and even the most minor finishing detail (as we requested--we were not interested in doing any painting or finishing work ourselves). Fourth, Kel kept our home and garage very tidy during this process, cleaning up after himself each day.

Great experience. Julio installed a new wood railing in my home and it looks beautiful. The total time between initial estimate and project completion was 11 days--which we especially appreciated because we have a baby due really soon. Julio has an eye for design and kept making improvements/suggestions throughout the installation process. I felt that he did not cut any corners and truly wanted to produce a quality product, even though I know the project took him longer than he initially expected. Julio is also very friendly and personable. Also, he's great with dogs--we had no problem letting our dog roam around while they were at the house.

I would recommend Gene Juarez and Above All Construction to anyone looking to do improvements in their home. Gene offered a quote that was better than competitors and backed it up with quality I believe would match those competitors. His team was friendly, prompt, and cleaned up well when finished with their work. I would hire Gene and his team again and, in fact, did for a quick project. He responded right away and finish the work faster than asked.

Our home siding project turned out extremely well. We are quite pleased with all the attention to detail that was made during the installation of our new siding, fascia, and soffits. New gutters were also installed which were of first class quality. Jim did a great job taking care of all the large and small details from the beginning of the estimate process through completion of work.

Excellent ! Hard working, attention to detail, problem solver. We were looking for someone to install a skylight and a few windows and ended up hiring Pena Construction to do the whole attic finish. Would recommend Cris any day of the week! As a matter of fact I have and will continue to refer him to all of my clients as I am an Architectural Designer and often have clients looking for jobs Pena Construction is more than qualified to handle!

This is a wonderful, family-owned company. Excellent customer service, communication, and work quality! I had a very small repair project, and every other company blew me off as soon as they learned that I didn’t have a large, pricey project -- Beleza did not. Leah and Jose promptly responded to my request for an estimate and came to my home (on a Friday night). The color of the replacement siding I needed had been discontinued, but they tracked some down and ordered it for me, then immediately came out and completed the work, leaving no mess. Great company, great people!!

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.

They were great! They showed up on time to give us an estimate. Once we decided on the project, they got the permit and started the next day. They were very professional and listened to all of our concerns. They were always on time and I didn’t need to worry that they weren’t coming. This was a big job and we are so happy with the outcome. It is better then we could have imagined. Within 4 days we had an actual backyard, where our old swimming pool was.

DPENN Construction completed two projects in my mid-century ranch style home: basement, bedroom remodel and front exterior entry way repair. In a 70 year old home, projects like this are never simple and come with unique challenges. Both projects were completed to my COMPLETE SATISFACTION and met or exceeded all of my expectations. The first thing I would say about DPENN Construction is VALUE. The quality of the work and the attention to meeting my goals for the job spoke directly to value. At every step along the way, David Pennington, immediately responded to all questions and conducted himself with respect for my home and Professionalism in his work. I will call DPENN Construction again when I'm ready for the next project!

When they were scheduled to re-roof my cabin, which was 3 1/2 hrs away from the Twin Cities, they showed up exactly on time! They rebuilt half of the rotten truss work, along with re-decking the entire cabin! They did an exceptional job and they were very professional! I would recommend them to anyone!

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.
