When I looked to hire someone for the renovation work in my bathroom I had three separate contractors do a site visit to review the scope of work so I could walk through the job and my expectations with each one of them in order for them to provide a bid for the work. Kurt's consistent punctuality started with that first site visit and continued until the completion of the work. His bid for the work contained enough detail to assure that he understood the scope of the project for a competitive price. During the initial site visit he demonstrated the hands on knowledge required for the work through his understanding and questions concerning my intentions on drywall work, vanity/plumbing changes, trim adjustments, tiling and the small amount of electrical work contained in the project. Once the details of the proposal were worked out Kurt got started about a week later as he had clearly communicated his timeline for starting the work to me while pricing the job. All the demo and drywall work was completed in the first two days, with the new tiling, vanity install and trim/finish work completed early the following week. I was so impressed with the quality of the work that I added new tiling installation into a second entire bathroom and some additional drywall and trim work in a third bathroom as well. As a project manager for a commercial construction firm I would highly recommend utilizing Allthingshome for future work based on the quality of their work, timeliness of completion and competitive pricing.

Bob was the best investment I've made for my home! I hired him to finish a bathroom in my basement laundry room. He offered me a solution four other contractors never suggested and ended up helping me save a lot of money while expanding the amount of room! He offered great suggestions and always kept me updated on progress. Incredibly professional and respectful of my home by always cleaning up the worksite. Oh, and he offers wonderful advice on dog training too! All around the best contractor I've worked with in the Omaha area and the first name on my list for all future progress. Call him now, you won't regret it!

I had Bulldog Constuction do a total bathroom remodel for me and I could not have been more pleased with not just the finished product but the entire process. The project was completed on time and on budget yet he was very flexible with any changes and additions to the scope of work. Rob was on site most every day and made it seem as though this was his primary focus. Above all the work was outstanding and there have been no follow up issues. I can not recommend Bulldog Construction highly enough for any construction or remodeling needs.

We had a great experience in using Crusader Construction Company! Benjamin Jones is very knowledgeable in many trade areas. We used him to create a now beautiful bathroom! He installed a new sink, counter top, sconce lighting (his idea, which I LOVE) and new wiring throughout for safety switches, exhaust fan and overhead light in my shower! He also removed an awkward inside door/wall. The room looks so much larger! We were so pleased with his professionalism and quick responses that we hired him AGAIN to help with finishing our basement (picture to follow.) He's strong too, to carry all that drywall! haha It's nice to finally find a jack-of-all-trades kind of guy that we can TRUST. We'll be calling again for our next project for sure!

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.
