Working with Bob has been one of the most pleasant experiences I can recall when it comes to house-related projects. We engaged with him to custom design a stand-alone garage with a second story in-law's suite to go along with our home's contemporary architectural lines. We had very specific functional requests and Bob took them in stride, listening with patience and sketching on the fly to confirm his understanding of our needs. I felt like Bob set realistic expectations for us on the cost of the project and when certain phases of the project would be completed. He has been proactive in reaching out to provide updates along the way and has been receptive and accommodating to our design feedback. I also feel like we received the appropriate number of concepts and check-ins along the way that helped to establish our confidence in his direction as well as helping to avoid wasted work by inadvertently going too far down the wrong aesthetic path. Additionally, Bob was a wealth of information in guiding us on engineering and permitting processes, as well as what the construction bidding and building process would look like. I would highly recommend Bob for any residential home projects but I understand he has an extensive portfolio covering commercial and municipal projects as well. If you're in need of a collaborative, patient, and experienced architect, please do not hesitate to work with Bob. Two thumbs up!

Mark did an excellent job creating a beautiful new classic kitchen from a 1950's galley. He is extremely hard working and very detail oriented and brings many skills to the table. He had many good design ideas and was very good about managing and advising on cost and value to our home. Everyone one loves the new space and we hope to work with him again.

What a pleasant experience it was having Mike reinvent my house. It was my first major home renovation -- and I always thought that an extensive remodel would be stressful, behind schedule, and over budget. Wrong answer, at least with him. Great experience from start to finish. A true professional and a very friendly guy.

Bill did a fabulous job of designing my home, giving new life to my possessions by using them in beautiful new ways, space planning and working with colors. His design skills and access to many beautiful lines of finishes and furnishings create beautiful spaces. He has also helped me decorate for parties and holidays, executing his vision with efficiency. I highly recommend him.

    I have known Rocco for many years. He is a class act. You will not meet a more honest person. In March of 2014, my wife and I moved from our home in the glen arbor subdivision off lees vile road. We bought a much larger home with an open floor plan. Mainly, the living room and kitchen had a dividing wall that separated the two. Rocco was amazing. From the get go, him and my wife designed an open concept kitchen/living room. Rocco, with his design layout expertise was very patient throughout the entire process. Him and my wife worked through many design ideas to ensure we utilized the entire kitchen cabinets and counter space so that no area was un used. He guided us and ordered all the cabinets, trim, kick plate, and hardware needed for a complete installation. We absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE our new kitchen. Superior Remodeling does such high quality work that I go to Rocco on many occasions for advice, as I also am in the home remodeling business. I recommend Superior a remodeling to all my friends and potential clients. They have done several projects from my recommendations. Quality work, quality personnel, quality material, equals awesomeness!!!

      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.
