We asked Helio to do a small insulation project in the kitchen. He responded to our inquiry immediately and visited our place on the very next day. His work was very quick and solid. He charged us 1/3 of what another handyman had said he would. Thanks, Helio!

I had a great experience working with Brian's Custom Remodeling. In addition to painting every square inch of the ceilings, walls and trim of my entire home, Brian graciously took on the numerous other projects I asked him to complete while he was in my home painting. He was great at communicating project status, providing options, and taking initiative to fix problems so I didn't have to. I'll absolutely hire Brian again.

I originally hired Justin to repair a damaged stair structure outside my house and also to tear out and replace some exterior carpeting. He did an excellent job - his work is very sound and I feel confident it will last for years. He did tear out the carpeting, but then advised me that he thought it would be best not to replace it, and explained why. After discussion I agreed. I appreciated that he was willling to tell me that it may not be in my best interests to do something I was prepared to have him do. Subsequent to the staircase work, I also hired Justin to clean my exterior and interior windows, and he also cleaned the window tracks. He did a great job - the windows are very clean and absolutely streak free. This work was a pain in the neck because recent construction on the house has created a lot of dirt and debris, especially in the window tracks, but Justin was very thorough. I will definitely keep Justin in mind for future work. He is reliable, prompt, honest, and thinks creatively about how to solve problems.

Jeff recently completed a bathroom renovation in my lake cottage. The house was built in 1910 and it required Jeff to completely tear out the existing bathroom and do a complete remodel. Jeff did all of the work including the tear out, plumbing, electric, tiling, painting, etc. Jeff focuses on quality and detail which is extremely important especially when doing tile work. He also replaced doors in my home and was able to find solutions to unique door sizes and uneven floors. I would be happy to speak with anyone who is considering hiring Jeff for a project!

A very pleasant and competent carpenter; could benefit from taking more time for the pre-job process. Did arrive on time as scheduled and completed work to our satisfaction. What I thought was going to be a door trim replacement (to replace rotted out trim) turned out to be a complete entry door replacement due to the fact that the framing of the door was rotted as well. To be fair, he had mentioned this possibility ahead of time, but I didn't think it was necessary as I thought the framing was part of door trim to be replaced. My only complaint would be that had he come by ahead of time for just a quick stop to inspect the project, determine materials needed, then final-quote the job, he could have arrived with the correct materials and time required to do the job and i'd have given 5 stars. Instead, the quote was loosely handled via text / email with me sending pix of the door frame condition. Project turned out to be more involved when he saw it himself, requiring a quick procurement of a whole new door unit (which cost significantly more than the amount he mentioned before running out to the local home improvement store to purchase door unit & materials). Instead of $240 plus materials ($140 mentioned for door), it was $240 plus a $220 door. This also resulted in an installation done partially in the dark of night as it took more time than planned - finish work and cleanup would probably have been cleaner if done by daylight. A bit of a rush job but as it is just a garage door it will do.

I used Chris for a complete gut and remodel of my bathroom and he did a fantastic job. He was polite, reasonably priced, and made sure everything was done correctly. He has a lot of knowledge about construction and takes his time to do the job right. I would highly recommend him for any job.

I’ve been in the construction business for 40 years as a Drywall Contractor. I know scores of builders and I chose Jason to build my garage because of his character,price and I’ve known him his whole life. He did everything I asked for and was up to the challenge when I would make changes. A few other builders I work for have stopped in and said he did a great job.

Dave gave us a quote that was less than the others we received, which actually made me a little nervous. I was quickly relieved when I saw the quality of his work. He worked quickly, but didn't take any shortcuts. Everyday he cleaned up and it was as if he made no mess while he was here. Despite removing multiple walls and doing a lot of electrical work, Dave kept us informed every step of the way. We are impressed with the quality of work, level of professionalism and overall experience. I highly recommend Elliot construction and he will be the first one we call for future projects.

There is nothing as important to the look of a house as roofing and siding. Take two identical wood frame houses, for example. Finish one in white clapboard with a cedar shake roof and the other in pink stucco with a clay tile roof, and you've made some major and very different aesthetic statements. But, there's more to these choices than appearances. Roofing and siding are also a house's first line of defense against the weather. That's why the materials have to be durable, properly installed and well maintained. Traditional options like wood, brick, stone, and stucco for walls, cedar, slate and tile for roofs are time-tested and good-looking. They're also pricey. So, in recent decades, they've been joined by man-made, look-alikes that cost less and don't need as much upkeep. "You used to have to choose between low maintenance and nice looking," says Tom Silva, this old house general contractor. "Today you can have both." Read on for Tom's installation techniques and a look at the next generation of roofing and siding products such as: A Many-Layered Thing No roofing or siding material by itself is a perfect barrier against the elements. So, before the outer skin goes on, Tom Silva protects all the vulnerable areas like "the corners and edges” with sticky strips of waterproofing membrane. Then he tops everything with layers of builder's felt, a thick, asphalt-impregnated paper. What, No Housewrap? The plastic housewrap under the siding of most new houses or additions is meant to stop wind and water. But, Tom uses the old (and much cheaper) materials "builder's felt or rosin paper” because he prefers to insulate with spray foam. "There's no air or moisture passage to worry about," he says. Always, whether over felt, paper or a wrap, Tom tacks up drainage strips before he hangs wood siding. It needs an air space behind, so it can dry out. Our roofing and siding materials include the following: * Peel-and-Stick Flashing Of all the new building materials that Tom has seen in the past 25 years, he's embraced none more enthusiastically than self-adhesive waterproofing membrane. This peel-and-stick, high-tech tar is impervious to water and literally seals itself around any fasteners that penetrate it. The membrane also sticks tenaciously to itself, so installation can be tricky. "We learned not to install it in the wind," Tom says. Tough as it is, the membrane does have an Achilles' heel sunlight, so it must always be covered with siding, roofing or metal flashing. * Cement Siding Fiber-cement siding is virtually indistinguishable from painted wood, yet it never rots, won't burn, extends the life of a paint job and is warranted for 50 years. The price is about $3 per square foot, installed and painted is slightly less than that of most wood clapboard. The siding, a mix of cement, cellulose fiber and sand was used on the Billerica TV project house. Tom was impressed. "It looks really nice," he says. * Plastic Trim Cellular PVC, an extrusion of solid vinyl whipped full of tiny bubbles, can be cut, routed, nailed and painted just like real wood. In fact, it does everything wood except rot, check, warp or fade. Tom used it on the outside of the Concord cottage project, and even Norm Abram was hard pressed to tell that it wasn't painted wood.

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.  

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 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.

What is a contractor license number?

A contractor license number is proof that your contractor is operating their business legally, that they have the proper documentation required by your state or region, and that they are competent in their area of work (electrical, plumbing, construction, etc.). Licensed contractors should freely advertise their contractor license number. If not, you can request it before considering them for hire. You can also research your contractor using their license number. The database for your state will indicate the field they are licensed to work in; whether they are up to date on insurance, workers’ compensation and bonds; and whether they have any consumer complaints issued against them. If the licensed contractor you are hiring does not have employees, they are not required to carry workers’ compensation. Each state or region will have their own database for licenses, such as the State of Oregon Construction Contractors Board. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.
