Powerhouse was awesome! Mike came out gave me an estimate, with the final total being very close to the original estimate!! I added a few extras. Mike's pricing was the best I found through having several companies give bids. Scott, the tile expert was professional, punctual and explained exactly what he was doing. The tile work he did is beautiful! I am definitely going to call Powerhouse again to complete more work on my home in the future!! Renee

He came in to a job that wasn't finished and he got right in and finished the job. Probably better than the original contractor. I would definitely hire him again.

Jorge, of Desert Pine, is great! Contacted me within minutes and showed up for the first appointment on time. We have since hired him for all things around our home. From handyman work to full yard maintenance. It's in the beginning stage but we are happy with Jorge.

We hired John to retexture and paint our ceilings (after we had scraped the popcorn off ourselves). He and his partner did a great job and were really inexpensive compared to competitors prices. It was nice to find a contractor that is actually willing to take on a "small" job, whereas other companies are only interested in jobs for large homes and corporations. The only reason I didn't give him the full five stars is because it took them a day longer than they planned, but other than that we had a great experience. Very glad we found him and would definitely recommend!

Not only Larry did a great job on fixing a broken wooden gate, but also he was communicative. He has answered my questions promptly, so I knew how much it will cost, when he is coming and how long the project will take without leaving myself wondering if he is ever going to call. I'd ask for any other handyman work to Larry as I felt he is honest and dependable.

Joseph did a paint job for our home. He was very friendly and offered helpful information. Since he has a background as a general contractor, he was able to fix other things at our home that needed attention, and he did this for a reasonable price. He did good work and we are happy we hired him for the job!

Steve Figueroa had done an addition to our house. We love the quality of his work very detail oriented, got the addition done in a reasonable amount of time. He had also done some work on our church building and again the work he done was excellent and done in a good amount of time. I would definitely use him again to do any type of construction to my house.

The Basement finish out and the Deck replacement both went extremely well. Alan went to bat for us with the Permit process as well. Other sub-contractors that were suggested also worked out fine. Alan is extremely professional and very knowledgeable. It was a pleasure meeting him and working with him.

    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.

    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.
