He called ahead and let me know what time he would be here and came in the evening, which was convenient. He was unfamiliar with the brand of garbage disposal I had purchased so it took him a bit longer than he and I expected, but the project is done and my wife is happy that she has a garbage disposal now.

Juan was great. He is very responsive, does good work and is professional. He renovated my closets and did not cut corners on the work. He is expedient and a hard worker. He listened to what I wanted and exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend him. The only draw back is that I recommend that you ask him to put up plastic to control construction dust to prevent the need for cleaning up dust each night.

Great job handling some bumps in the project. We had 3 basement windows replaced. We ordered new construction windows instead of replacement, so that added complexity but Darin was still able to complete the work quickly and make the finished product look great. He stuck to his initial quote even though it must have taken him more time than expected. The job required a lot of tools and mess but he left things looking tidy. He was also very responsive as we set up the appointment. Would definitely hire again. Thanks!

James remodeled the kitchen, flooring and interior painting. His knowledge and professionalism is exceptional. He is very detail oriented. He went out of his way to recommend few things like missing exhaust in our kitchen. When you seek any suggestions, he doesnt treat it as a way to make more money and instead suggest us what is doable. Many other contractors were reluctant to install an island in kitchen but James is never hesitant to try out something that we requests for. He would be the go person for any of our remodeling needs. If any suggestions to improve, I’d suggest to have frequent discussions with the client on site in person (sometimes text communications make it tough) and you’d be outstanding in your profession. I highly recommend James to any of your construction or remodeling needs.

9we were very impressed with Nertil when he came to give us our estimate.He was right on time, met our cat and dog, and told us exactly what would be needed to complete the job. We decided to use London Construction that same day. We made an appointment for 11/16. Nertill and his assistant arrived promptly and set to work. They completed the job quickly and professionally. Before he left, Nertil instructed me on the initial maintenance of our new tile flooring. Not only did the two of them clean up thoroughly, but the pyramid also swept our front steps. I intend to work with London again in the near future.

Brian's restored our broken antique rocking chair to its original condition for less than half of his repair estimate. He also fixed a variety of small (yet annoying) issues in the apartment which other carpenters were unable to fix. Has enthusiam for his work, a wide range of skills and a gentle manner. There's no categorical rating that would be high enough to encapsulate the quality of his work, or the pleasure and ease of working with him.

These guys are great!! I own a four-family home which had been in a fire incident. I was in need of some dire repairs and remodeling, a friend of mine refered me to them and when I met with the Contractor he was very knowledgeable withover 35 Years of experience. I had them remodel and repair every aspect of my home the work was done very neat to my surprise the house was up and running in no time. I was guided through the work and they saved me lots of money on material cost. I would definitely recomend and will have them pave over my backyard this summer. The right contractor for any job!!

I highly recommend global hill construction company Mr. Shoodi performed an outstanding job and I am thrilled with the final results! My floors presented a challenge as they were badly damaged with staining and paint the full home In only 4 days shoodi transformed my flooring to looking brand new once again and pants results was very good. His technique provided me with many pros: reasonably priced, no need to move out of my home as his products are non-toxic ( a plus if you have pets or children ), the convenience of no sand or dust clean-up. Shoodi and his co-worker naveed were at all times polite, professional, and always on time as scheduled. They also meticulously moved all of my furniture back in place once the job was completed. An added bonus is their office manager ahmad who was a pleasure to deal with. Ahmad diligently took care of all appointment details including my building's insurance requirements, etc. A major plus for the consumer! New York, NY. Shoodi was a true professional.

I hired We Show Up Construction llc for a kitchen renovation. Prior to that, I had already purchased my cabinets from Ikea. Rich and his crew handled the demolition of my old kitchen, the assembling of the cabinets, installed new flooring, hung the cabinets, and added a backsplash. Throughout this whole process there were some hiccups along the way. However, there was no problem that came up that Rich and his crew did not have a solution for. Overall, I am very happy with my new kitchen and I would hire We Show Up Construction for future home projects.

I cannot recommend Osman enough! I needed a remodel of a small apartment unit and it looks amazing. He is knowledge about everything - this project included electrical, plumbing and plastering/painting some very beat up walls. I'm so happy with the outcome and the experience. Osman is very easy to work with - he's a clear communicator and really does exceptional work. The entire project was completed within a tight one week deadline and on budget. He was so helpful and went above and beyond. I would recommend him to anyone for any size project.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.

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.
