I’m happy to give L&J Home Repair the highest rating possible. Luis is a true professional, demonstrating excellent communication skills, providing outstanding leadership and using quality materials for the job. He actually went beyond the specific project requirements to help me analyze and address additional home improvement issues. Amazingly, the cost of the repair still matched the estimate exactly. A future check up visit is also included. Luis at L&J offered, then provided, the best service for the best price. I plan to use this company in the future and am thankful to have found them. JP

Our job started off with just finishing the drywall in our basement. Once we saw the amazing job that Ray and his partner were doing, we contracted them to completely finish our basement from plumbing to paint. We are thrilled with the work they did, and their speedy completion. We would recommend them to anyone and plan to use them again for another project very soon!! Thank you Palones Construction!

Larry first designed a 6400 sq ft home that we built in 1999! Everything was perfect! He came to review the construction many times during the building process and EVEN caught a major mistake when it could still be rectified. Recently, Larry has designed a plan for a major remodeling project at our town home. We are in the process of construction now! I am really excited to see the work progress. You will be really satisfied and pleased if you hire Larry!

KPS Design took my "chicken scratch plan" of what I wanted in my next home and turned it into a 5,000 sq. ft. Custom Lake Home. It is very functional as well as comfortable and a pleasure to enjoy with family and friends.

Fountainhead Design has helped me with the design of 7 homes so far and I have been very happy with the fact that they will design to the level of my needs. The designs are affordable for me, because I don't need 30 pages of drawings for one house, I get exactly what I ask for in the level of detail, no more, no less. After the initial design, I send them off to my engineer, then back to Fountainhead to make the changes. It works great and has become a huge asset to my company.

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.
