Glenn and his crew took down two layers of wall paper, patched the walls, painted our hallway/stairway and replaced a closet door. We had avoided this job for many years because we felt it the difficulty of the job (high ceilings, multilayered wallpaper, lots of wall repair) would make the project just too expensive. Glenn provided a realistic estimate, quick time frame and beautiful work. The walls and door are gorgeous and only took two days. We were so pleased with the results. Glenn's knowledge and professionalism were so impressive we have already hired him to refinished the stairs! We will be using his services for many projects to come. We highly recommend having Glenn work in your home.

Sewell did an excellent job building my Gorilla Playsets Double Down Residential Wood Playset with Swings it took him about 2 days to build (due to the weather) but it was well worth the wait my son loved it as his early birthday gift. I highly recommend Sewell and will be using his skills for other projects, thank you so much Sewell!

Multiple electrical jobs completed both indoor and outdoor for old and new construction for both my moms residence and mine. Response time was same day and appointments were fulfilled in less than a week. All jobs were successfully completed and there was never a need to return to fix any jobs we paid for. Also, when new electrical issues arose I was able to reach out for advisement. Prices were fair and competitive and service was high quality. All repairs were explained in lamens terms for easy understanding of problems and remedies. I have high standards with who I hire because there are a lot of scammers and low quality electricians and I don't like to pay twice. I would recommend this electrician to anyone and trust his work and feel safe having him handle all the electrical work for my home and my families homes. Cheaping out on electrical work means you pay later ....

Where do I begin? Benny EXPERTLY replaced my residential heating unit, fixing my 3 previous HVAC guys' mistakes and shortcuts in the process, the biggest of which was a huge condensation problem slowly destroying my chimney, this without the need of installing an expensive chimney liner ☺. And when he discovered air being vented over fiberglass house insulation - a big no-no - he spent at least 3-4 hours removing the insulation at no extra charge, just to do the job right, and because of his concern for our health. He also installed a central AC unit at the same time, which I LOVE. I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the extra intake adjustable vent he suggested and installed near the unit in the basement, which recirculates cold/cool air from the basement to the rest of the house when I open this vent and run the fan only function on the unit, cooling the house on those warm not hot days, making the need of running the actual AC unit often unnecessary and saving me $$$. And after he reconfigured the duct work some, so that the reusable hepa filters he provided to us fit snugly in the system, our allergy symptoms immediately became a thing of the past ☺☺☺. He also asked me what kind of thermostat I would like, and installed the perfect thermostat for me, and also color-coordinated it to my decor no less. Beautiful! I love it. And when my water heater recently gave up the ghost, Benny rearranged his schedule to replace it asap, along with adding shut-off valves going to the water heater (perfect), another expert installation of another fine quality unit, these jobs WELL WORTH their very reasonable costs...I've never written a review before for anything, but felt compelled to sing Benny's praises. From now on he's the only HVAC/plumber for me. Do not think twice!

At first, I thought Ed was a slick guy, maybe not trustworthy because he was...well, super nice! It's not every day you find someone in the construction business that is extremely personable and isn't selling snake oil. Ed and his men were very professional. They showed up early, poured and finished my 250sqft concrete job, and even came back the following 2 days when the job could not be finished as anticipated. Ed is a man of his word. I would recommend Ed and his team if you are looking for honest work, for an honest and fair price.

I have worked with Abdul on multiple projects. I manage few rental properties across the state of NJ. He is my go to person. He gives me his honest opinion and is very responsive. I have worked with many contractors but Abdul is by far one of the best. He is so punctual and all my tenants are always pleased with his manner and professionalism. I would highly recommend him for any job you may have.

Highly recommend!! We noticed some shingles on the ground after a high-wind storm, and got Mike's name from a neighbor. He returned our call right away & was willing to come out to evaluate over the weekend, which was really convenient for us. He arrived on time & was very courteous & knowledgeable. He showed us photos of the damage & pointed out some waterproofing issues with our old roof install that he took care of at the same time. Turns out the previous roofers cut corners, but Mike was very thorough. He put us at ease, explained all the repairs, & left nothing to clean up. (I've been in the service industry for years and not many people are as meticulous these days.) We'll definitely be calling him again for future improvement projects!

This company and owner Brett were a pleasure to deal with. I had water damage from a busted pipe. So one room had to be re-sheet rocked, speckled, and painted. The quality of the work Brett did was absolutely flawless and came at a very good price. After he finished up the room I was so happy with the quality and price that I decided to have 3 other rooms and a bathroom repainted. Once again he gave me a very good price for painting the rooms and the work was perfect. I highly recommend Bwe custom construction !!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Why should you hire a contractor?

Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the 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.  

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.
