You can't do better than Gillaspie Handyman Building & Maintenance. Nick Gillaspie is a true professional with an artist's eye. He recently completed a job for our family, rebuilding our house in Dilworth which was over 100 years old and in very rough condition. Before we started with Nick, a real estate agent told us that it was a tear-down. Now that Nick has finished his work, it's structurally sound and beautiful. As someone who's done a little bit of construction and carpentry myself, I know good work when I see it. Nick can do just about anything in the building trades himself and do it well: frame and finish carpentry, drywall, flooring, tile work, painting, roofing, landscaping. But, when extra help is needed, he hires the best. His crews are mature, very hard working and fun to hang out with. Nick himself is a pleasure to work with, a really nice guy with a good sense of humor. He's a family man with a serious work ethic. He talked through different possibilities for solving construction problems and cleared every major decision with me in advance. He worked hard to find the least expensive solution to problems that could have been costly. And he came up with creative ideas for how to make a very old house not just functional, but a real pleasure to look at and live in. I'd work with him again any time, for any kind of job. If you're looking for someone for any job, large or small, and would like a reference about Nick Gillaspie and Gillaspie Handyman Building & Maintenance, please email me at with your phone number, and I'll give you a call.

Paul Gibson is an excellent contractor that strives to fully satisfy. He and his crew are hardworking craftsmen. The end result was everything I was hoping for. More than his ability to get the job done, is his honesty and integrity. The job was completed without any problems. He honored all deadlines and promptly completed the job. My roofing repairs were reviewed by a structural engineer who said his work was “PERFECT”. Dealing with Paul was a pleasure I would happily recommend Paul Gibson.

Matthew did a fantastic job for our company. His prices are great and his knowledge of brick and brick products is quite impressive. He did a commercial project for us where a car had run in to a condo building and caused cosmetic and structural damage to exterior of the building. He started and completed the project on schedule and his work was amazing. Not only will we be using Matthew again for our future brick masonry projects but I would also highly recommend him to my friends and family.

Crawlspace Medic performed crawlspace repairs on our rental property. (Replacing damaged wood and laying down a new vapor barrier) Communication was huge for us as we are not local and Greg did an amazing job of keeping us informed, sending photos of before and after work and providing detailed information about the job so we could feel confident that it was getting done right. Highly recommend them to anyone needing structural or crawl space repair.

This is my first project that required an engineer. Omar was extremely responsive and helpful. He came out to my house almost right away and the plans were done quickly. He was friendly and made sure I was getting what I needed for my project. He even offered to help with any questions after the fact if I had any problems.

Engineer Hassan provided a great help to us during our new home construction. We were concerned about the modification/cut that our builder did in the foundation slab. His recommendation on how to repair the defect that was made by the builder in our home foundation was highly appreciated. Thank you for your great and professional service.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.
