Kurt did some wood repairs and painting on the exterior of my house. He also did some work on the chimney. All work was excellent quality and reasonably priced. Kurt works hard while on the job site.

David and his crew professionally assessed the requirements that would have to be done in order to finish a job started by a handyman who turned out to be not as handy as he promised. David gave me a fair and honest appraisal of what needed to be accomplished in order to finish the job-in-progress. His candor, without impugning the capabilities or honesty of the initial individual, gave me a very good idea of what needed to be done to get back on track and how long it would take, along with an accurate estimate of the overall costs. David said he'd be done in two weeks and he was, unlike the first person who also promised two weeks then disappeared after milking me of the quoted money over a three month period, leaving a disaster, and completely disappearing. To say that I am happy with David's work is an understatement. He did what he said he would and did it very well. Outstanding is closer to describing his work and the results. My only regret is that I did not think of him initially. We would have a great building but it would have cost a lot less. I am grateful to David and his crew for cleaning up the mess left by another, and making everything right. When I saw David's name on Thumbtack I recognized it and immediately confirmed that he was the man who routinely maintained the duplex we rented when we first transferred to this area about 20 years ago. While we lived in it, he did a super job maintaining the duplex. For those who don't know, having a house on the beach may sound romantic but the romance comes at a very high maintenance price; the environment is flat-out hard on structures and vehicles. David did a superb job then and his quality of work has only improved. If you need his services, I very highly recommend him as the go to guy. Don't make the mistake I did; you will get the quality of work for which you are willing to pay. I found David to be fair and honest. His crew work hard and are as professional as he. What more could you ask?

Amanda is a wonderful realtor who sold us our beach house! We trusted her so much, we bought it sight unseen with only her pictures and opinion. She is also helping us to rent the beach house and is always available with anything we need.

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.
