You Can’t Go Wrong With Such Great Work As a retiree, living on a fixed income and not being a professional in the building/construction trades it’s always a bit nerve-racking when faced with multiple issues to maintain your home investment. The Colonial portion of the homestead was built in 1750 and the addition is an authentic Post-N-Beam Revival making this a valuable property historically and culturally. With this type of property, quality cannot be compromised! I had six immediate responses to my request for roofing repairs initially. So, let’s talk about the ONE that got the job(s). L&K Construction gets five stars from me in every category. Wayne returned my initial call very quick. He showed up at my residence, surveyed the repair work needed and then promptly provided the explanation of the scope of the repairs. He also provided an estimate of the proposed job in a very professional manner. Now here is where the differences began to surface that separate the field. Wayne is very knowledgeable on all phases of construction from demo and rehab to new construction. As a roofer, Wayne was tasked with cleaning up shabby work of previous roofers. Previous work that was done poorly causing leakage and potentially costly damages to not only the exterior but the interior of the property. I was more than pleased with his work on this task and immediately expanded the scope of work and employed him with additional projects – cedar roofing and siding repairs. If your doing cedar you need to know what your doing! He was back on site within a few days! Having been in the property business I understood the value of a firm like L&K Construction managed by the generational experience of Wayne Lupien. Wayne was honest and candid in his explanations and his estimates. The jobs were excellent! The cleanup was excellent with no walk around problems. The price was fair and reasonable. As a matter of fact, L&K Construction will be coming back to do more work with not only roofing and siding but with masonary work. You can bet I will be informing my friends and acquaintances of the professional expertise of L&K Construction. So, if you are looking for professional work at a reasonable price with no sacrifice on quality to get that level of cost-to-benefit ratio, call Wayne at L&K Construction - you’ll be glad you did!

I Highly recommend Mike Levy for his efficiency and knowledge. He helped us remove and rehang three doors and they required extra effort to make them function properly. We would definitely hire him again for any construction jobs we may need in the future.

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.

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!

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.

True professionals are as good as gold! I put off remodeling my home for years because I dreaded the hassle of dealing with contractors and designers. When I finally committed to having the work done, I went through at least 8 General Contractors and designers to find the right fit. Each of these was either overly expensive, or had overbearing personalities, or sounded like used car salesmen.... Until I connected with Byron Cuhna and Co. Byron runs a family operated construction company that handles all size jobs. Byron came in and helped my wife and I work through the design of a large addition 26x24 on with a two car garage and bedrooms/bath above it, as well as another 15x15 family room on the opposite side of the house. Byron not only gave us great design ideas, he helped us add features that would be more cost effective and efficient. Byron and his son Eric were on the job from start to finish, and made the experience of living in "construction" much more bearable, and at a price affordable enough that I can still pay my children's college tuition next year. I highly recommend Byron Cuhna construction, I will update this review with final before and after pictures of my house. Carmelo

My project had changes along the way, but they only made the results even better. I had a vision of what I wanted and he and his team made it a reality. The quality of the work is not only solid but I can rest easy knowing I have a room i can be proud of and enjoy for many years to come. The people he works with for electrical, masonry and landscaping work were all professional and thorough as well. Kudos to all. What a difference!

Everything. It came out like I visualized it beforehand. He and his employee were prompt and eager to please along with the fact that the job looks great. I would hire the company again if I dream up another project. Chad, the owner of the company, gave me a great price and the work was finished on schedule.

They are a life saver! When we needed a licensed contractor to look at a potential structure issue on a condo we had placed an offer on they were able to come that same night and eliminate my fears! He gave me the worst case scenario which helped me to evaluate. The realtor was so impressed she asked for his business card as well! We plan to use this company to install tile! Thank you again!

Brent transformed our driveway from being a rugged riverbed of a logging road into something that you would expect to see as a roadway thru a National Park! The quality of the materials he used, based on his know how and experience, was outstanding. We've had several favorable comments on it from people who where familiar with the way it used to be. We have had a few experiences recently with various contractors, and none where as favorable as that with Brent. If you want the job done right, most economically, and aesthetically pleasing, do no hesitate to give this man the opportunity to review and discuss your project. Thank you, Brent!

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.
