Brian was extremely professional and detail oriented. He went out of his way to put me at ease and describe to me all he was doing before he started the job. I was very pleased with how he renovated my bathroom as well as the price he gave me for the overall project. I recommend his company to anyone interested in updating their home,

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!

They came out to help repair my side entrance way steps that were in dire need of repair. He quoted me an extremely competitive and reasonable quote, and came out a couple of days later and had everything completed and cleaned up when I got home from work! Any questions he had about the project he called and asked me about and was very straight forward with all repairs needed.

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’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.

Rick Mincer - RAM Construction Rick - assisted by his son Richie - worked on a house we bought while we were on vacation in Florida. The house is a 3 BR Ranch on a village lot w/an attached 2 car garage & covered patio. Built in 1964, the house was purchased "as is" and was in the process of being fixed up after sitting unused for around 10 years and having had a roofing problem that caused some interior damage. We had RAM complete some of the water damage work prior to doing some major remodeling in the MBR & Bath. The bath was totally remodeled with all new fixtures and drywall. The MBR received a new sheetrock ceiling replacing the orig. 12" sq tiles and repairs to the walls before redecorating. The Kitchen was gutted and a complete new Kitchen with all new appliances was competed next. In the process of working on the kitchen, the boiler on the heating system failed and we decided to replace all of that system with a new forced air furnace. RAM worked with Main Plumbing & Heating on that project and also supplied temporary heat by setting up some temp electric heat units in the basement. RAM worked for us for 3 months - while we were in Florida - our input was to visit Lowe's and pick out things we wanted and they picked them up & installed them. We're very pleased with Rick's work and plan to use RAM to remodel the 2nd bathroom and do some more work on trim & prep for getting other areas ready for paint, in the next few weeks.

    John Davenport replaced our aging deck with new composite boards in April, 2011. He is a knowledgeable craftsman who held himself to high standards throughout the project. He identified and replaced all questionable joists, assuring that the new deck is as solid underneath as it is beautiful on top. Where choices had to be made, he offered thoughtful suggestions that led to better results even though they sometimes made his job harder.

    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.

    About

    I've worked with many companies that got the job done, got paid and didn't care about the job the day after. On the other hand, my company is based on customer satisfaction, clean jobsites and clear communication between the customers and myself. So the job gets done right and on time, and the customer is happy to pay me for the work I've accomplished. Why do you care if the customers are happy? It's easy, they will not hesitate to tell their friends that I did a good job, and that they should hire me too. It's my quality versus the others who skip steps to make a couple of extra dollars. Therefore, modern construction is filled with guys I choose to work with to build stronger buildings for longer durability.

    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.
