Matt and his team did a tremendous job re-roofing my home last month. He was through in his assessments and quotes for the work, with his team finishing the job on schedule. Matt does contract with other folks, so you will have to work with multiple people during the project. However, you'll be completely satisfied with the results. I'd hire Matt and his team again for any other major repairs.

Jonathan is terrific! Over the past decade, he has been the go-to guy for all my home repairs in Santa Fe. He did a beautiful job acquiring and installing custom windows and doors for my historic home. He has maintained the gas heaters and and chimneys, repaired exterior stucco, replaced plumbing fixtures, and countless other jobs. He is prompt, responsible and reasonable. From routine maintenance to more detailed projects, you can count on him. I recommend him highly.

I had roof leaks that I could not fix. Luis and his crew arrived quickly and soon found the problem spots and fixed them nicely. During the job Luis discovered a pre-existing design flaw in the metal roof construction. This caused the job to be re-estimated. He created and installed large custom sheet metal shapes that fixed the problem area and also fabricated and installed two gutters that solved some long-standing inconveniences. I was invited onto the roof throughout the job for explanations of the problems and to review the work that had been done. I would recommend Miramontes Contracting for roof repairs and other home improvements.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do architects work?

Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

How do architects charge for their services?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.
