Ck Maintenance was very attentive to our needs. He fixed our shower and installed a whole house water filtration system for us. He called just before his schooled arrival, was pleasant, polite and made us feel confident in his ability to do the work. He stayed until the job was complete, even though it took longer than he anticipated. He tested and checked everything before he left. The cost of the job came in within the quote he originally gave us as well. We will us Carl for our future plumbing needs.

AJ was professional and prompt in all his responses to my inquiries about getting work done. That same attitude was evident in all the work he completed for us. Initially it was to fix siding and other broken areas outside. We found more areas around the house and inside also that AJ quickly determined the problem and efficiently corrected. He is now our go to guy. GO WITH AJ TO GET THE JOB DONE.

We have postponed the concrete job. However, we did hire A N D Construction, Jake Tucker,for our shower install and in addition to that he installed a laundry sink in our basement. Jake Tucker did an outstanding job on our shower install. He went over and above and also painted the entire bathroom. The laundry sink project was also very well done and neater than we had anticipated . He was very neat considerate and respectful of our home. I would definitely recommend him and I have recommended him for any of your home remodeling or repair needs. I will be having Jake back to do our concrete job in the very near future.

Jerry Geiling has done numerous large remodeling jobs for us--from gutting and remodeling a bathroom, to installing new windows on our entire house to building a shed and most masterfully of all, building built-in cabinets and bookshelves in our family room. His work is meticulous, timely and excellent. His attention to detail and dedication to doing a job properly is admirable. He is extremely pleasant and easy to deal with, and he communicates very well with his customers. His prices are fair, and there are no surprises when the bill comes due. I would recommend Jerry Geiling without hesitation or reservation for any remodeling work, large or small.

Al has worked on our home for the last 16 years. He's done so many improvements which include custom built in bookcases, enclosed porch repairs, new deck, replacement windows and a kitchen remodel. Even if the job is just to install window shades he is on time and his rates are reasonable. We have him check our home when we travel which gives us peace of mind. I highly recommend his work.

I could not have asked for more. Dave did outstanding work, has superb skills in everything (carpentry, sheetrock, electrical, various paint jobs), understood the project and what I wanted to do. He provided his own excellent suggestions which I incorporated in the project, was always punctual, meticulous and hard working. The project was a finished basement requiring a drop ceiling, building and placement of walls, electrical work, painting the floor and proofing the area against dust which was a real problem. I very strong recommend him.

Sue did a wonderful job listening to our long wish list of ideas and then thoughtfully designed our perfect home. From the very first sketch, Sue completely understood the type of home we wanted to build. We are so totally happy and content in our new home. The design is spectacular, unique and sits so perfectly on the land. Although this is our “forever” home, if I ever did want to build another home, Sue would be the only person I would hire.

Mike has done a wide variety of work for us over the years, everything from installing French drains and gutters to building kayak racks, staining our log home, exterior repair work, and interior painting and dry walling. Recently, and most impressively, he came to our rescue when we received a call from our security company saying we had a water leak in the basement. Mike went to the house, sucked up 14 gallons of water, cleaned the floor, and created a barrier to prevent any additional water that might come in from damaging a nearby wood floor. Mike stopped in periodically throughout the next week to check for additional leaks. Now that spring has arrived, he will return to repair the causal problem on the exterior of the foundation. We highly recommend the team at Berkshires Finest.

    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.
