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!

Ed and his crew were able to help us with a super quick turn around on our exterior house painting job. Ed kept up to date on how it was going and answered all my questions. They did leave open garbage bags and got paint all over my garden hose and that is why I couldn't do five stars. Overall I am happy with the job. Thanks Ed and Josh!

We completed a substantial renovation of our home on Lake Ontario in 2011. Every room in the house was affected including an addition. Paul's knowledge, contacts and customer focus provides a solid sense of confidence and results. I have given Paul's name to a number of friends when they have asked for someone to help with their building needs.

George Shepard is an extremely professional "Handyman" and one I would not only contract again but would share his qualities with all of my friends. He was on time as scheduled, assessed the job and then followed through by going beyond expectations and added extra quality to his work. I was very impressed with his work and will be looking for him to return to do more jobs for us. He is patient and explains every step of his work to make sure as I home owner I understand what is being done and why.

Mr. Caletz's work is top notch. I flew him in from Rochester to PWM and back to help me with a project that called for expertise beyond my capability. My home is in East Harpswell, Maine. I wanted to replace a slider door with a double vented side-lite Atrium entry door, and additionally, took out a daylight basement garage door and replaced it with a double French opening Anderson Exterior door. I estimated his stay at abut a a week. Rey and I finished the job in only four work days. He put in about 10 productive hours a day with me, and we had time to work on laying out a tiling project I wanted to accomplish in my sunroom. When he measures , he always double checks the critical stuff. I've known this gentleman for about 29 years and have worked with him on custom home construction projects on Seekins Dr. in Bath, and at West Chops Point on a 1/2 million dollar new construction project for a retired Navy full bird captain. Rey Caletz's attention to detail and abundant wealth of innovative finish carpentry knowledge sets him apart from others in the industry. That's why I flew him in. And he's a very kind and gentle person to boot. Ask him for an estimate and he will be very fair, and you will find your dollars well spent, as well as a good friend by the time your project is complete.....something lacking in many these days. He tackles every challenge with a love for his craft. Feel free to contact me at my work cell 207.522.5660 between 1000 and 2000 Monday thru Friday, or at a reasonable time on the weekends. Relax and enjoy. Regards, Rick

The work Robb has done for us has been outstanding and better than expected. His use of creativity solving the problems of updating an older home, while preserving its vintage essence has been greatly appreciated. You just don't find craftsmanship like his very often these days. Robb is a trouble-shooter; if you would like something done, but don't know how it could be done, ask Robb. An example: after several HVAC companies told us the 100 year old "octopus" boiler couldn't be fixed and the removal & replacement costs would be $16,000 (and not in the budget!), Robb repaired the crack in the giant boiler quickly and affordably, at nominal cost. It continues to work dependably and efficiently, six years later. Thank you, Robb.

Wade has been extremely helpful and understanding to the home building process. We chose him because his designs stood out from the rest and as it turns out, he was just as professional as his designs. We hope to have him do more designs for us in the future.

The attention to detail for the right solution was excellent and it was clear from the start that they cared about the customer vs. just the job at hand. It started with floor repair, but we have increased the services because of how comfortable and confident we are in the ability of the people. We highly recommend Peper Remodeling and Home Improvement.

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.
