Such a great experience using Christie's Home Maintenance. They were able to come out within 24 hours and provided a free estimate for repairs. They explained in a clear manner the problem and provided multiple solutions to let you decide which was best for you. Was able to set up appointment time within 2 business days for a half-day job. They arrived within a reasonable time-frame of their expected appointment time, were very courteous, finished the job in the allotted time and cleaned up nicely. Am very impressed with the work done and would highly recommend as I would definitely use them again in the future.

I am so happy that I came across Mitchell and Son Construction Services on Thumbtack. I had just recently purchased a home, but my yard was quickly becoming a bit feral. I needed fast, but excellent lawn care and Mark Mitchell delivered just that. Now my home looks great, and I would definitely recommend him to others without hesitation.

It can be risky assigning a construction project when you are not physically onsite to verify work quality. Clines planned out and seamlessly completed my new stair project - exactly matched to my requested specifications. I needed a low rise (4” step), not 7” standard + a double deep stair tread (25” vs. 11”). You never know when a walker will be in your future. Showed up on time, worked efficiently and at a very fair price. Clines delivered a gorgeous and handicap-friendly final product. I highly recommend.

Joe and Tina were a pleasure to work with. This was my first home and I was so overwhelmed when it came to changing the floors to what I wanted and understanding why other companies cost so much. Tina took the time to assist me with purchasing my carpet, and took many phone calls from me about the laminate I was desperately seeking out. Joe and his crew were clean, respectful of my belongings, and stayed on schedule (which is a dream in construction). This team is extremely knowledgeable and down to earth, and I have already referred him to several co-workers looking for new flooring. The wood laminate looks wonderful, as does the carpet in the living room, hall and stairs, and I was able to save some money. I am now looking forward to him installing tile in the kitchen soon!

I obtained quotes from several painting companies in the Charlotte area, and ultimately decided to use BWH Services due to Ben Hamrick’s professionalism, the company’s reasonable pricing, and seeing their paint work that had been done in another person’s home. I hired BWH Services to paint all of the interior walls in my new construction home, and my experience was great. The job took approximately 4 days. The crew was polite, and covered our brand new flooring very well and cleaned up after themselves when the job was done. My only request at the final walkthrough was for an additional coat of paint on a very dark color that we chose to use in one room, which Ben took care of immediately on that same day. Our home looks beautiful with freshly painted walls and I would definitely use BWH Services again and recommend them to friends and family. Thanks, Ben! -Lauren Mikulan

Jeff did a great job on my bathroom repairs. He always responded immediately to my messages, came out quickly and sent me an estimate in no time. I needed the floor under my toilet replaced and he worked quickly to get the job done. He keep me informed of his progress while working which was great. He is very skilled at what he does and is very professional. The quality of his work with my bathroom was great and I would definitely hire him again for any repairs I might need.

Cannot recommend Ruben enough. He showed up with a crew on time and tackled my electrical project (removing old light fixtures and fans and replacing them) very fast and efficiently. Hired him again for a much more complicated lighting install and he and his crew again were extremely efficient and professional. Will be using him for all my electrical needs in the future.

We're very pleased with the work Alex and his team did expanding our patio. He was flexible enough to accommodate changes during the construction phase and made sure everything was to our satisfaction before he considered the job to be complete. Above all he was responsive and quoted us a reasonable rate for what we believe to be excellent work!

B&P Construction Services was great to work with. Upon requesting a quote, they made time to come to our house, evaluate the work and immediately started on our lengthy list of projects. They worked efficiently with little to no supervision and everything was finished ahead of schedule. It was a great experience and certainly plan to use them on future projects!

Great Experienced Professional Exterior Painters! We are very pleased with Jackson’s workers and services he’d provided. He showed up promptly on time to give us a quote, worked very fast to finalize the details on what is asked and cost estimate. We were very happy with the process and would highly recommend Jackson and his team to others needing paint project. The project took about 7 business days. They taped the windows and doors and covered my newly remodeled deck so paint doesn’t get on it. They worked through painting the trims and edges with double coats of white paint. They sprayed the siding of the home.... which gave it a nice even coat! They painted the beams underneath the deck as well and garage door. We are very happy with the results. Once complete, we finalized and did a walk through for touch up and clean up on recess paints etc.... surprisingly ... there wasn’t a lot of excess mess left. He even pressured wash and cleaned the driveway for us because of some paint that was dropped by his workers. Some of his workers do no speak English but My communication with Jackson was sufficient enough to convey what my needs were with the project and the information trickles down. Again, VERY happy with his work and team! He’s very pleasant to deal with and very customer service oriented! We feel like we have a brand new home! Thanks Jackson and Team!!!

I have been involved with Bray Builders on several projects in the residential area and small commercial projects. As a designer I meet with clients and develop drawings for construction. Walt Bray is an honest and capable builder, taking time to insure that his work is finished on time and code compliant. I would highly recommend his services to any of my clients.

We had a bedroom that had some large holes and a crack from some previous remodel work. There were too many nail and screw holes to count from previous tenant. There was 30 year old carpet down over hardwood floors. There was an old wall electric heater on one baseboard. Several of the electrical outlets were cracked in half. Lee and Craig came and gave a estimate for the work to make the room usable again. They worked so hard over the next week to remove nails and screws and prep walls for painting. Sheetrock repair , heater removal, changing outlets and covers, baseboard repair, sanding window sills and recaulking. Removal of carpet and tack strips. Replaced louver doors on closet. Painted the room and trim. It was a miraculous transformation !!! They did an AMAZING job!!! They were an absolute joy to work with.

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.
