Mike did an outstanding job repairing drywall damage to my ceiling caused by ice dams. I am delighted with the results. Mike is a quality person and craftsman. He is knowledgeable about all aspects of construction and repair - he is unfailingly polite, reliable, eager to please, and meticulous in his approach. He was always on time and worked hard to complete the job within the scheduled timeframe. If needed, he has a network of reliable experts and he ensures that anyone he works with meets his high standards . I would hire Mike again in a heartbeat.

I had a relatively simple vinyl siding repair job I needed done and DE Carroll Construction was the only company that understood the simple nature of the work. The estimate and work were good and done promptly and quickly with effective communication.

My partner and I had our small kitchen redone this past summer and I couldn't be more happy with the results. Deciding to undertake a complete renovation is a very daunting task. Shopping for the right crew, streamlining ideas, budgeting, etc... its a huge job even before the physical work begins. I feel fortunate that we decided to go with Eduardo and Boston Best Construction. From the designer to the construction team, I felt he had an amazing crew handling our project. He was prompt with all questions comments and concerns. He listened to our ideas and helped fill in gaps with his experience and expertise. His team was clean and respectful to our home. Each day before they began work they took measures to protect our property and at the end of every day they spent time cleaning up never leaving a mess. Every time I walk into the house and see the kitchen it makes me overwhelmingly happy. Its perfect!! As a chef the kitchen is my sanctuary, and Eduardo created a beautiful place for me to create dishes for my partner, friends, and family. If you want a job done very well by an amazing team look no further.

Ryan was excellent to work with. We have worked with other contractors in the past and had some bad experiences so we had some worries moving into this project. Ryan helped us through every step and was very detail orientated. We remodeled our kitchen with Vera construction and are currently talking about having a garage built which our first call will be to Ryan.

Genuis is defined as the ability to simplify the complicated. My experience is that Bruce is almost "psychic" in his intuitive ability to help you VISUALIZE YOUR PROJECT finished before it commences. A very impressive man, a rarity in these days.. He assists every which way as a builder, was an impressive presence as Supervisor of Maintence in Boston in his "school days," and even plays a mean Jazz guitar ! Always an exceptional Martial Artist since his interest began the 1970s , it is probable that his TAI CHI CHUAN experience, helped him develop a penetrating, powerful mind, making things happen in the real world, at a bargain to boot ! The truth be known he even has some fluency in foreign languages. The "MacGyver" of Construction Mgmt, BRUCE MONTVILLE stands for Quality and Quick Expert Solutions for anything you can throw at him... I have seen him in action...BRUCE ROCKS ! TURNAROUND time is on the NINJA level.

We hired Russell to build a new newel post for our stairwell and install a new railing and spindles. We had sawed off the old newel post during a home construction project a year ago and did not have a picture or materials from the prior post. Russell was able to create a beautiful newel post from scratch which looks better than anything we could have bought in store. He was also committed to ensuring that the style of the post, railing, and spindles matched with our house. At our request, Russell returned to adjust something according to our wishes and even made suggestions to make the whole thing look even better. Russell was professional, honest, and came in at a great price. We appreciated his patience and willingness to deliver a product that we loved. We enjoyed working with Russell and love our new stair railing and hope to use him for future house projects!

We contacted Northeast Construction first based solely on the very professional email they sent. They were also the first to come look at the job, had the estimate to us the next day. Not the cheapest price but after speaking with Brandon I was sold on their experience. Three guys came out to our house, two worked the Sheetrock and one on the cabinet. Everything was covered and throughly cleaned over the couple days that they were there. The work was great, cabinet is perfect, couldn't ask for any thing better or different. Brandon came out to look everything over once the job was done.

We had our roof done with them. The owner of this business is a wonderful man. They responded to my initial call immediately and got an appointment within a few days for a free estimate. They came on time and the estimate was emailed to me within a few days. We decided to go with Rainstone construction because of their responsiveness. On the day of work they showed up on time, worked quickly and cleaned up after finishing. We found them reliable, professional with reasonable pricing. We enjoyed working with them and will surely recommend Rainstone to our friends.

Bruno and his crew were excellent. They went above and beyond the original scope of work at no extra charge. Very professional and always responsive when I called. A trait not common in the construction field. I will call Bruno every time I have a masonry need.

The manpower behind Silva Masonry is quite good. They have done great construction work to renovate the backyard of my house. They’ve pretty good pricing too because of which I didn’t have to shell out extra money beyond my budget. Work was completed within the estimated time which was not too much.

Professional contractors, very conscientious of the fact that we were living in the house during construction and kept the work site clean and protected the rest of the house from dust and debris. Quality work with attention paid to detail.

James was the most prompt in getting back to me of all the quotes I received. He was thorough with his information I would need to go forward. He could not do the project as it was not his expertise (metal work) but was wonderful in recommending a very competent person that was local and (along with a great reference) that could do the work. James seems like a great bet and trustworthy to boot!! Will use in the future if need be. Thank you so much James!!

I had an excellent experience with WKD Construction. Communication from start to finish was outstanding. They were very professional, at all times, and took great care to leave my property neat and tidy everyday. They were even able to match the stain on the house exactly, which was impressive. I found the price to be very reasonable. I definitely would not hesitate to hire WKD Construction for any future project I may plan.

The overall quality of the team and their work. They came when they said they would, worked with us on any questions/concerns that came up, and before leaving for the day Kevin would come and get my husband to go over the days work. The time frame they gave us for the project (roof over existing deck ) was right on the money with the only delay being one day of rain. Also our code enforcement officer, who had never worked with Kevin, was impressed with the work. The team was was courteous and polite and at the end of the project the area was so clean that if it wasn't for the new roof you couldn't tell they were there. I would highly recommend Kev and Sons Construction! !

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.  

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 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.

What is a contractor license number?

A contractor license number is proof that your contractor is operating their business legally, that they have the proper documentation required by your state or region, and that they are competent in their area of work (electrical, plumbing, construction, etc.). Licensed contractors should freely advertise their contractor license number. If not, you can request it before considering them for hire. You can also research your contractor using their license number. The database for your state will indicate the field they are licensed to work in; whether they are up to date on insurance, workers’ compensation and bonds; and whether they have any consumer complaints issued against them. If the licensed contractor you are hiring does not have employees, they are not required to carry workers’ compensation. Each state or region will have their own database for licenses, such as the State of Oregon Construction Contractors Board. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.
