Whole home vinyl siding, sofits, and covering all wood in metal wraps. The salesperson was very nice and clean cut and all the installers showed up on time and cleaned up after it was done. Very good company to work with.

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 loved working with Todd. And if I ever build again, he would be my go to. This is the second home my husband and I have built (one out of state and now the one we live in). And working with him was perhaps one of my very favorite experiences. I have very particular tastes (both aesthetic and functional), have always been very detail oriented, and I am a very hands on client (probably a bit annoying for him and Gloria). He was always accommodating, very involved, and always able to put things back into perspective (to the functional reason). The contractors that he employs have been top notch; always going above and beyond and informing me what they were doing if I stopped by (which I did do daily). I actually got to know most of his contractors and when you realize that they love what they are building, I think it actually shows in their craftsmanship. As for Todd, his attention to perfection just suited my own anal retentiveness. He absolutely puts himself into building this home and I could talk him up forever. I loved working with Gloria. She gives great advice and makes sure that things are communicated. She's also very detail oriented and will keep things on track. We have been in our home for a year. We have had a handful of things that needed repair after a year that involved Todd, but all minor (lighting, driveway cracks due to foundation settling, grout that has some cracks). Probably one major thing that could not have been predicted and really no one's fault was handled immediately. I absolutely LOVE my home. I loved building it. I have maybe two things that I would change (light switch placement on one light and maybe having added the potential frame-out of a fireplace in the semi-unfinished basement). Todd and Gloria both received hugs when we were done. Hands down, when we complete the basement, I plan to have Todd and his contractors back out. He always seemed to see my vision and listened to me when I was very specific in what I had in my head. And when the materials weren't available (or "not in style for Omaha," as one supplier had the gall to tell me), Gloria made sure to hunt down another option that fit what I was looking for. There's something to be said about the Menards. They are a pretty amazing team. It's one thing to listen, one thing to envision, and the other thing to build. So they are a pretty complete package. And let me add, that when I went through a model and expressed that it was and wasn't entirely what I was looking for, I knew that Todd and I would get along when he asked, "Well what would you want to change?" and he took no offense to it. In fact, it solidified our business relationship when he took me room by room and when I expressed something about a nook not being what I would want, he immediately offered other options... It resulted in a giant closet. When we weren't able to install two shower heads, his suggestion were more body sprayers... BEST idea ever. And when I saw something during building that I thought wasn't going to turn out exactly how I envisioned it, there was always the work towards getting it to the best of the availability. One last thing, my husband and I have expressed that we love our home so much that going on fancy vacations won't ever beat being at our own home, we enjoy it so. :)

    Dave and his crew replaced our aging deck. We discussed design considerations and he put together a plan to expand the deck size over what our old one was. We have a septic system so there are considerations for how close you can put a structure to it. He checked codes requirements and lined up all needed permits. The old deck was demoed in a few hours and hauled away. Then we determined the surface below the deck needed to be built up a few inches higher to get the grade correct for flowing water away from the foundation. We didn't have a truck large enough to haul that much dirt without taking many trips so he arranged for a trailer to get it all in one load. The pilings went in next and after letting the concrete cure the deck was framed up and surfaced. We opted to go with a metal railings which are aluminum with a tough textured coating. The deck is constructed out of western red cedar. This combination of material choices is the most cost effective considering the price of composite deck materials along with the ongoing maintenance that traditional wooden railing need. We're happy with the results! The larger deck surface is much more inviting and usable than our old deck. It looks great and is solid. My wife and I joke that it'd hold the house up in a tornado (hopefully we never have to find out!).

    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.
