He always kept me updated on the progress of the job and was always friendly and professional. I highly recommend them and will definitely use them again!

Jim and his crew couldn't have possibly been more professional and trustworthy! Jim showed up to measure our property for an estimate on a Sunday! My wife and I had made many calls to 2 different contractors, both had been referred to us, one promised to have our fence done months ago and the other was insistent about us paying with cash, that is when we turned to thumbtack. We wish we would have done it months ago! Jim did countless hours of leg work calling the town and getting the sewer, gas and electric companies out to make sure everything was to code. Our Town is extremely strict and and a bit ridiculous, but JP Contracting addressed every one of our needs and hand built our fence so we had exactly what we wanted! There are 2 other projects that we need done, custom sliding doors and another outdoor project and we won't have anyone else do the work besides JP Contracting! Thank you again Jim and crew! True pros! If you ever need a referral give them my number! You guys rock!

I had Jeff come out to my home to provide me with an estimate for a full bathroom installation in my basement. He was incredibly detailed and took over an hour and half of his time to listen to my needs, perform measurements and explain different facets of the project and options available to me. He later emailed me a very detailed estimate. While we ultimately chose to go with a different contractor, I would have felt very comfortable going with Jeff for my project.

I was looking to have my house painted. I got several estimates then called Big Shawn's custom painting. He came out the next day looked over the house. He explained how they would paint the house and how long it would take. It went just as He said it would. They were very professional. If you are looking to have your house painted at a reasonable price call Big Shawn's custom painting you won't be sorry.

I have been working on a DIY project of building a sunroom on my house and getting towards the end of the project I wanted to hasten its completion by having someone hang and mud the drywall. That is where Thumbtack and Nulook Group came in; I posted my job on Thumbtack and Nulook Group was one of the contractors that responded. They called very quickly and we set up an appointment to take a look at the job. I explained what I needed to be done and the time frame that it needed to be done in; they returned a quote, again very quickly, which I accepted. Communication from start to finish was excellent; I knew when they were coming and how long everything would take. All went according to plan and their workmanship was excellent.

This has been one of the best experiences I have had with a contractor. Mike was quick to respond. His price was very fair. He did an excellent job at repairing my front porch after someone crashed into it. He did come out to assess the job and give an estimate, and I had many contractors before that said they would come to look at the job and never respond or return . Then to make things even better, I had new carpet put in and was unable to move my doors due to the height of the carpet. I called and Mike came the very next day and fixed the problem. I will definitely call him again for future work in my home

I have been using Advanced Drywall & Painting for a few years and is my go to company to get my repairs done. Just a few weeks ago I had my living room remodeled by them and it was in really bad shape. Working with them was easy and completed in a timely matter. The job was completed by the expected date that I was given at the time of the estimate, and they go above and beyond to make their customers happy!! Best prices around!!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.

      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.
