We contacted Chad about hauling away trash bags from my Grandma's apartment. They came out within 24 hours to assess what size truck they would need to clear all of the trash away. Two workers came back a few hours later and took care of all of the trash. They were courteous, punctual, helpful, and friendly. The original quote was $200 but the actual cost was $375 due to the amount of debris we needed taken away. We would use this company again.

I had a "small" drywall job that I couldn't do myself. I had several contractors offer quotes after seeing the pictures that I sent them. A few guessed at what it would take to fix and an approx cost and others would not take the job because it was below their minimun pricing and not worth their time. Juan came out on a Saturday morning and physically saw the issues that I had and provided a very reasonable quote. He worked around my busy schedule to do the work for me. Juan and his worker were very professional and finished the job in half the time that we thought it would take!! I will definately keep his card and use him for additional jobs I have coming up in the near future!! Thanks Juan!!! Job VERY well done!!

We had a railing on the front porch that rusted at the bottoms and fell off and Michael was able to re-bolt it into the concrete and make it look good. He also replaced the light on the front porch. He came out for an estimate the day after inquiring about this little project and came back the next day to finish it. Very timely, quality for cost, and very professional! Will use again for future projects.

Roy has been doing some insurance repair work for my basement after water issues. He has been very helpful with dealing with the insurance adjustor and helping me get everything organized. His work has been great and I asked him to do some extra work while on site and his pricing is excellent. Roy has always available when I had questions about the project.

I phoned Jeff to investigate multiple electrical repair issues at my home. He came out to give me an estimate promptly and professionally. This work was completed on time and on budget. I also had him add some much needed lighting to the master bath area. While he was working on that lighting I left him a note to also add an updated and quiet fan to another bathroom. He did not complain about the late add on to the additional work and phoned me with the cost prior to the installation. I could not be more pleased with all of the results.I will be referrring him to anyone that needs a qualified electrician.

Darrell Arnold owner of Patch and Paint did a great job for us. My husband and I decided to remodel our kitchen and do a number of other miscellaneous upgrades in our home…and Darrell did it all!! First, when we decided to hire a professional to help us with the remodel, we posted a project description out on THUMBTACK, which is a service that brings together people who need work done with those who do the work, a way to connect by allowing skilled professionals to review a work project and if interested to make contact with you. We posted our project on a Friday evening, and within 30 minutes, Darrell contacted us and said he was qualified and very interested in working with us. He scheduled an appointment with us the following morning, to come to our home which allowed us an opportunity to discuss and show him what we needed done in our home, to include: transforming our kitchen cabinets from an oak stain to a cherry wood look, painting to include a lot of trim work, removing wallpaper, hanging lights, ceiling fans, mirrors, repairing drywall damage, hanging doors, installing new door knobs and fixtures throughout our home, etc. Within hours, Darrell contacted us to accept the job and to provide us with a Very Reasonable cost estimate. Not only was Darrell very skilled, he was willing to complete handyman type services around our home, as well. Additionally, Darrell had great recommendations on painting ideas, accent walls, etc. that I found very helpful. Darrell always let me know when he would arrive at our home and what to expect with our project. Another very valuable service the Darrell offered was to estimate how long the project timeframe would span and he stuck to that timeframe, even in light of other work that he had going on that he had been unaware of, at the time that he accepted our job. On a daily basis, Darrell would always leave our home clean, in fact, we would never have known he had been in our home, except to find the many improvements he made on a daily basis upon our return in the afternoons and evenings. He was absolutely fabulous to work with and was so responsive to our every need. We would highly recommend him to any individual or family to help with a home remodel, etc. We were so pleased with Darrell’s workmanship and only wish we had become acquainted with he and his company years ago. We now consider Darrell a friend to our family and in the future plan to invite him to return to our home to complete additional project work in both the interior and exterior of our home.

Our home was hit by a spring storm that unfortunately involved quarter-sized hail. After looking at some roofing companies online, having a few come out to my property to give me a quote, I ultimately chose Johnson Roofing. That decision was not based on price, as many offered to do the job at the cost my insurance was quoting me, but rather the promptness of their response and how comfortable I felt that Craig Hill with Johnson Roofing would take care of the repairs. Over the course of the next month, the roof got removed and replaced (working quickly over a day and a half) and the gutters and window flashing replaced (on a separate day). Throughout this time, Craig let me know what was going on at all steps in the process, and was very responsive to any concerns via phone or text. They handled the entire process with the insurance, even working on my behalf to get some additional damage covered that the insurance adjuster initially missed. In the end, I wasn't out any money, had a new roof on my house, and I didn't have to pull any hair out during the process. Bottom Line: If you are in need of a new roof and don't know where to turn, my experience with Craig at Johnson Roofing would lead me to suggest you give them a call. The process was seamless, making what normally is a very stressful time just after a storm damages your home, and turning it into an experience where I was confident that I (and my home) was in the right hands. A year later now, and I am looking at purchasing a new home that has an older roof (20+ years). Craig was the first person I called, as he is one of the few contractors who I immediately felt I could trust his judgement.

I hired L& C To build a 10X10 barn style shed. Lloyd the owner responded quickly to my request. Provided a very fair price compared to the others who responded. Lloyd and his son did a fantastic job building our shed. He is exact, meticulous and straight forward. Weather and missing pieces delayed the finish of the job but Lloyd took the extra time to make sure the job was done correctly. I will hire Lloyd again and will gladly recommend him to friends and family. He is gentlemen and a true craftsmen.Thank You Lloyd.

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.

Bryan Downs from Hamilton Downs was very professional and their work was exceptional, fast, and courteous. The crew was efficient and did a great job keeping everything clean and cleaned up well after the job was completed. I would definitely recommend Hamilton for roof replacement. Their pricing is very competitive and fair.

Frank provided a quick accurate estimate and completed the project in the minimum amount of time. He kept in constant contact with me keeping me informed of progress and remaining tasks to be completed. He went above and beyond his estimate by repairing minor unexpected flaws without charging me extra. The quality of the finished product was his overall concern.

I can't say enough great things about Donnie and Gage Electrical Contracting Inc, but hopefully the following will help you decided on Donnie and Gage Electrical Contracting Inc for any of your electrical needs. When I first sent thumbtack an inquire about an electrician needed for my jobs, Donnie reached out and was ready to tackle my jobs and any questions I had for the upcoming project. Unlike the other companies I was talking with, Donnie and Gage Electrical Contracting Inc offered a free quote to come and look at what work needed to be done and how much it would cost. From the start of the Thumbtack message right up to the end of the job, Donnie was a true professional! He always knew the answers to the questions that I had from myself, and also the many more questions my mom had as well. Donnie installed three electrical outlets, a light in the basement, LED lights in the kitchen, and also installed a fan in our kitchen for us. When the fan went up and was installed, it ran perfectly with no wobble, unlike other fans I've seen install that has the death shake to it. The price for all this work to include labor was very reasonable and I would definitely recommend Donnie and Gage Electrical Contracting Inc for any electrical work needed. I am so incredibly happy for the work Donnie did for my family, and in the future if I ever need more electrical work done.....Donnie will be the first person I am going to contact. Thank you again Donnie for being a true professional and getting the job done right the first time!

      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.  

      Why should you hire a contractor?

      Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the 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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
