The team did an excellent job on our project. The building was completed in 1934 and the plaster repair and painting was well done and matched perfectly.

Rick spent a lot of time making sure we ordered the door we wanted, even coming by before finalizing the order to double check colors. The installers were professional and did a really great job. They cleaned up afterwards and left us with a beautiful door. We are very satisfied.

I had an old and damaged garage which needed to be replaced. Brian was with me from beginning to end. He drew up plans and explained everything from options to cost. My new 1 car garage is bigger, stronger and will last many years to come. Great job on the building, cleanup and keeping in contact with me making this project much easier to handle.

Based on my personal experience, I would highly recommend Dave and Remolding Solutions, LLC. Dave was a tremendous help with a very bad home build construction situation I was dealing with. A previous general contractor (GC) I had hired with a different company proved to be unscrupulous. The previous GC was an epic fail as a business person and a disgrace to the construction industry who left my home build unfinished, in disrepair and caused other damages to my property. The situation had left me in a state of utter exasperation, frustration and on the verge of despair. Dave and Remodeling Solutions, Inc came to the rescue; restored my sanity and faith in mankind. His knowledge, willingness to assist, business ethics, genuine kindness and concern were invaluable. I am forever grateful for Dave's help and standard of excellence in conducting business!

There was a ton of work to be done for a hail damage insurance claim that affected 30+ homes. All new roofs, with a lot of siding, gutter, fascia repairs. Even garage door and garage door trim repairs were needed. Everything looks great and there were even things that were exposed as not being related to hail damage that they either repaired at no additional charge, or worked with the home owners and association to get those issues fixed instead of just covering them up again. Residents in the subdivision have even hired them for additional remodels and additions based on the work they did on the hail claim. We have also hired them to repair the pool house, which also had hail damage. Much better than working with one of the big name roofing companies

We had Mr. Goss build us a 16x16 cedar deck with stairs and hand rails. All I can say is WOW. His crew and Mr. Goss showed up and worked fast to complete our job. They seemed to work well together as I stood there watching them like every owner does lol. We was amazed how beautiful it turned out. If your looking for a cedar deck Mr. Goss and his crew will give any of the so called best decking companies a run for their money. Prompt, respectful, communicates very well. I think he even does vinyl decking. Well worth the money we spent.

    Dan Spiegel is Fantastic. We had his company do a stamped and stained patio for us and it turned out exactly the way we wanted it. We liked their work soo much that we later hired them to build our new garage which also worked out great. We have used them again for a couple other concrete jobs, but most important is that we not have a contractor we can trust and will never use anyone else.

    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.  

    How do architects work?

    Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

    When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

    How do architects charge for their services?

    According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.

    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.

    What do general contractors charge?

    If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

    • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
    • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
    • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
    • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.
