Andrew called and communicated when he could come, he did not inflated the cost above his estimate, he did the job immediately, used his own equipment and cleaned the grounds. Very satisfactory!!

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.

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.

Frank, Rebuilt my back deck it is approximately a32X20 two tier deck with two steps with gates and handrail with pickets and lattice for under pinning. The deck also has half covered metal awning supported with metal post. Frank is very professional does what he says he is going to do, for the price he tells you up front, plus goes the extra mile to make sure you are pleased with his work. He is actually preparing a cost estimate for me on replacement window and some indoor remodeling. I am a project manager for a larger industrial contractor and I would hire him in a minute if I knew would come work with me. He is also an Army Veteran and proud to have served his country. Frank did not ask one time for a partial payment and only required payment when he completed the deck. Top notch contractor and person. I highly recommend.

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!!

Ownership of a log home or cabin in a rural setting comes with enjoyable and fantastic moments along with the ultimate realization that this particular type of living arrangement calls for its own special approach to maintenance and planning for property improvements/enhancements. Such was the predicament in the effort to locate a tradesperson to tackle a “deck expansion” project. As a retired project manager, planning in detail comes natural but finding the person or firm to implement a desired course of action can be frustrating. Meeting Micah Walker was a blessing, and many ways, an answer to my prayers. He is smart, skillful, creative, conscientious, and very customer oriented. We started the project discussing plans and soon afterwards, Micah was totally involved with layout, leveling, measuring, and framing activity. He worked very diligently and I was immediately impressed to see such progress on the first day. Next day, he arrived early and jumped right back into the work at hand. Every phase of the project was discussed with his questions, our conversations which suggestion might be the better idea, and everything was done to meet my satisfaction. It was indeed a pleasure to experience such dedication and his willingness to please. His work ethic is supreme and he will definitely be successful in his line of work. His positive attitude is contagious and all I could do was be excited in waiting for the next project progress session. Nothing stopped him and he was quite cordial in making a modifications that might have come with a change in my mind. Also, I was quite moved as he got excited about another feature of the project and began working up some sort of template or model which we could both review before action to create the end product. The deck expansion includes some permanent bench seating complete with storage areas that required a great deal of skill in putting fabrication details in a “trial and error” mode…..and done in the colder December temperatures. The outcome: just beautiful and quite practical....as was confirmed by a visiting neighbor who immediately wanted Micah's name and telephone number for a future carpentry project. The expansion project is now complete. All has been cleaned up and the end result is a “showcase” of Micah’s handiwork and ability to take on a project and see it through to completion. One more example of Micah’s energy and desire to please was his presence on Sunday which I readily accepted which he did only after he asked permission. I have already told him of another future stairway project and will hope he is available. Please accept all this input as my intention to give Micah the definite positive recognition he deserves along with getting the attention to whoever might read this input in order to get some background about his capabilities and professionalism. You will not be disappointed! P.S. Sorry I am not at this residence location with this writing and do not have photos to attach, but the expansion is stunning; but if desired, Micah can certainly provide.

We had our old basement floor torn out, rebuilt, and a sump pump put in. I was in touch right away with Don and he came the next day for an estimate on time. He got started right away and the work was done in a timely manner with quality workmanship. The price was very fair also. Everyone I dealt with at Handyman Matters was courteous and honest. I highly recommend them.

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!

Jay was so easy to work with and very thorough. We contacted him via his website and he responded very quickly. He came by to see the project the same day. Jay was professional and a good listener. He offered up his well-thought out ideas and was respectful of our ideas, too. He knew how to get the job done correctly. Jay kept detailed records of expenses, did a very, very good estimate of materials and labor expenses. He was timely and worked hard. He easily excepted our suggestions along the way and the job turned out beautifully. We would not hesitate to work with him again, and in fact we are planning our next project! We encourage you to come see his work at our farm- just contact him.

I had a party for about 30 persons catered with several light hors'deauves and a couple of heavier main dish choices. There were finger desserts. The caterer also brought glasses, napkins and a few other items, which was very helpful. Everything was delicious! She also helped with clean up and brought and took away cooking and serving items. She was very helpful through out and she contributed so much that we ALL had a relaxed and fun time!

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.  

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 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.

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.
