Santiago repaired drywall in my garage and painted the entire downstairs of my home. He not only was very easy to deal with but also took every aspect of the job seriously. Being in the service business I know what it means to deliver on your clients expectation and Santiago exceeded mine. He completed the project a day faster than what he estimated with a price that was very reasonable for the work performed. If you are looking for someone that has experience in all aspects of construction without the big contractor feel, this is the guy to hire.

Daniel was great to work with. He showed up when he said he would for both the estimate and job. He did a great job pressure washing my home, driveway, side walk, and deck. He even fixed a few of my shutters that were loose. I would definitely use him again. Very reasonable with price.

Jeff communicated well during the process. The process was lengthy because of issues I had getting ownership of the property. Once I had cleared my obstacles, Jeff was ready and quickly built my 600 foot construction drive way.

It started with cutting a kitchen passthrough and expanded to demolition and rebuilding basement stairs, and building a deck, which involves adding steps and recutting a door opening. Terry has exceptional integrity, is kind, very communicative and very smart, an excellent problem-solver and able to grasp my intentions and aesthetic preferences instantly. He has so much experience that he can quickly break an estimated job down and is completely transparent with the details of all costs. He ASKS when I need to make choices (doesn't assume). The people he brings to work on larger jobs are also good people, a pleasure to be around. All this, and his prices are very fair!

Custom Craft Contracting gave a fair estimate for work as varied as repairing wood trim, replacing light fixtures and rebuilding a brick walk. They did the work well and completed it within a reasonable time frame. They also made sure I was completely satisfied before giving me the bill (with no deposit required). I would definitely recommend Custom Craft Contracting.

We hired Anatolia to separate part of our 2 1/2 car garage into a stained glass studio for my wife. This entailed adding a ceiling to floor wall with insulation, electrical outlets, paint, baseboards, can lighting, separate existing lighting from rest of garage, and tying in HVAC from the upstairs to the studio. We also wanted a utility sink in the garage and had to get all the plumbing run to the garage since there was nothing there already. We also wanted to change the existing electric range in the kitchen to an LP gas range. This entailed tying into the existing gas line and adding piping to propane tanks in the backyard. There were some issues that arose like all construction remodeling jobs but Anatolia worked with us and made things work. He and his crew were very professional and cleaned up every day when they left. He did a fabulous job on the studio and completed all the work in good time. We couldn't be happier with all the work he performed for us. We will definitely hire Anatolia again for future projects!!

We had Donnie and his team replace our driveway and side walkway. The work was done as requested, on time and very professionally. The estimate was right on, not a penny over. Donnie was always available to answer any questions. .. which were many. It was a great feeling to know that we were working with people we could trust and that the work would be done correctly. We have already hired Donnie to fence in our back yard and will certainly pass on his name to anyone who asks for a reference. Great contractor, great work, great price.

Henry fairly estimated my 'To Do' punch list, including home repairs, routine maintenance, and installation of a microwave oven. His work was meticulous, efficient, and competent - he went above and beyond by offering creative 'Plan B' solutions. His work was excellent -- highly recommended!

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.
