Quick and easy job that was done correctly (install a flashing). The availability was great but the price was very high and communication was below average (one person answers phones, different person does estimates, different person coordinates tha labor and a different person does the work... It was clear they didn't communicate between each other because I had to reexplain the simple job and schedule to each one and continually call to find out scheduling). I would use them again but felt like I had to manage them, where other roofing crews I use on larger jobs tend to take better care of the communications.

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.

Chris completed a 'mini' kitchen remodel for me. He refaced existing cabinets with new doors, drawers, and darker stain. He also coordinated the Cambria, backsplash, new sink and microwave installation. The project management was superior. Chris did an excellent job of keeping me in the loop on when he would be at the house and finished the job on time (even with an add on near the end of the project). We love our beautiful kitchen and look forward to working with Chris again!

I hired Todd to do an inspection on a foreclosure town home I am in the process of buying. I haven't been this impressed by a professional in home services for a long time. I was initially impressed by Todd's professionalism in the scheduling process and his contact with my realtor. So quick and efficient in follow-through contact with both of us. At the appointment, Todd arrived early. He immediately set out to do a thorough inspection with a high degree of professionalism. I was concerned about the town home being a foreclosure, but Todd walked me through all the systems, identified some problem areas, but overall, helped me understand how to approach the problems. I don't want to overstate it, but I must - this guy is a professional. The inspection was at 4:30 pm. on a Tuesday. By 6:15 a.m. the following morning I had a digital file in pdf to print out in booklet form (complete with digital tabs to click on section by section) the exact details of the entire inspection with diagrams and photos. His photos are going to be enormously helpful as I construct my to-do list of maintenance and handyman-type stuff I will need done. There is nothing Todd could have improved. One high-quality home service professional. So glad I hired him. Don't let his price fool you. He simply has to be one of the best values in the business.

It is so hard to work with insurance to get the right amount money to fix damage done to your home. I am so glad we had Andrew and team on our side! Andrew came a couple times to evaluate the extent of the work then worked with our home owners insurance to get us 6 times the amount of money that was initially thrown at us by the insurance adjuster. He was very adept at maneuvering through the red tape, etc. Even then, with Homestead's persistence, it took us several months to put our home back together after a 3rd floor toilet overran all night!! Darn insurance companies! Despite all that hassle, Greg was a great project manager and the subs were all respectful, on time, and communicated well. I would definitely hire Homestead again.

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!

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.

After breaking a pipe and flooding my house I contacted Merick Construction late at night for help. They responded promptly to start drying out my house to avoid mold. Their employees worked fast and were courteous. They helped me work with my insurance company and the work done was high quality. If I ever need help again they are who I will call. Highly recommend!

We had a ugly unfinished basement with a furnace in the middle of the room. After speaking with multiple contractors we selected Dpenn construction. David was able to creat a floor plan to get that out of the way, now we have a beautiful basement (bedroom, washroom, and bathroom with a walk-in shower). David was easy to work with, honest with pricing and scope of work, and we feel like we got a great value out of the work that was done. Would highly recommend.

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.
