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!

Late in 2006 we purchsed a smaller house and thanks to our realator, we were introduced to Nelson and Sons. The home we purchased was in need of extensive work to make it safe, comfortable and beautified. Before we moved in, all the floors were replaced, carpeting some rooms, congolumn in kitchen and wood in the living room. This was accomplished perfectly for us and we could move in our furniture. There were also areas in the basement that needed repair - this too was done very well. The trim work on the ceilings and wainscoating are beautiful. After we moved in, we had the attached garage converted to a large dining room. It was a massive effort that he accomplished with apparent ease with his skills with woodwork, and all the necessary things to accomplish for a raised floor. After this, we needed a porch for our back door. Cement was poured, columns were added for the elongted roof of our porch. A beautiful place for morning coffee when weather/temperatures permit. We also decided we needed a garage. The 2 car garage is remarkably sturdy with an attic and very well built.. Travis worked the better part of a year for us. He was always punctual at work. His initiative, suggestions and high quality of work was appreciated by us. His special touch for a project were improvements that exceeded our expectations. During his time working here he detected several problem areas. Thanks to him our home is now safer and more comfortable. He also remodeled our bathroom and also cut a small window for this windowless bathroom, which now is very attractive for a bathroom. Another project was remodeling our kitchen - - new sink, fixtures, cubbards and dishwasher were installed. My wife was exceptionally pleased as it was remodeled exactly as she wished. Throughout it was a pleasure to have Travis working on our home. He is honest and trustworthy. We gave him a set of house keys so he could work when we were out of town a few days. A couple years after all this, we decided we needed a front porch. I showed him a photo of a portico on a Louisiana Plantation and told him we wanted one like that. He replicated the photo perfectly and now we have a very attractive portico with 2 large white columns. We have received numerous compliments on the beauty of our portico. My wife and I are tetired and this our retirement home. We now live in comfort, safety and beauty - - - and a special comfort knowing we can call on Nelson and Sons whom we can trust when we need work done or an inspection.

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.

A Better Way, Kevin Osborne, did a great job for us! He installed tile and put our bathrooms back together, better than new! He was prompt and courteous. He went above and beyond his quote by including drywall and plumbing work that was unanticipated. He did not nickel and dime for the items he supplied from his truck when something was needed. He kept the site clean daily and was easy to have in my home. He takes pride in his work and it shows! I will recommend him to colleagues and friends.

Ray Kelch was very professional and did an outstanding job with my concrete driveway expansion. He was prompt and completed the job in one day. I had drainage issues and he made sure he put a swale in the concrete so when it rained, water would flow to the curb. He made an extra cut and did extra work like even out the clay excavation and placed sand and even threw in extra rebar at no extra charge! He is very friendly and told me why he used a laser level to make sure my driveway would slope correctly, and basically explained all he did to make it a superb job that will last me for many years. I was very satisfied with the price he charged, which was less than other competing bids. In addition, he arranged for the concrete delivery and finished the surface very nicely to match my existing driveway. I plan on using his services for my next project, which will be an outdoor deck.

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.
