Bravo! On time . On budget. Professional quality work. We had a drainage problem and an area that needed a brick paver patio to be redone. Marty is a perfectionist and helped us to create a beautiful Japanese garden and solved our problem. Will definitely recommend him to others and hire him again.

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.

We would highly recommend Pro Performance Contracting. Lawrence Smith did an outstanding job with our bathroom remodel. Lawrence worked within the time frame we agreed upon and modified our design as we requested. Fortunately for us Lawrence is knowledgeable in all aspects of construction. In addition to our remodel we had an unexpected leak in the kitchen ceiling.Lawrence was able to fix our plumbing issues along with the ceiling repair. Lawrence is an above average craftsman. We feel confident in referring Pro Performance Contracting for your next project. Dan McAlonen and Anita McGill

We have had McLean B Construction do two big jobs for us. We had the deck rebuilt and had to have repairs done on damage to our house. Both experiences were phenomenal. The crew arrived by 8am, spent a full day working. Every part of our new deck was cut by hand. It was solid and very secure. The repairs to the home is so good, nothing looks like it was damaged in the beginning. I am thinking of many new projects for the future. I highly recommend McLean B.

Painted exterior house- 2 unit building- excellent job! Many compliments! All work was timely and quality job with everything- like garage roof repair, and brickwork. This was my first time using thumbtack, and I had a lot of quotes. Jeff was very professional, walked through the scope of work to be done, wrote out a contract and did everything he said he was going to do, very timely, reasonable pricing, reliable crew, and good quality work. I plan to use him again!

Bob stepped right in & has been guiding me through the design and building process . Bob is very knowledgeable , thorough , dependable and committed to my project . He is easy to work with and has alleviated my stress .

Brian completely surpassed my expectation of a job well done. His professionalize, experience, and appreciation of our desired outcome for the kitchen remodel went far above what we could have hope in working with a contractor. I would certainly seek his services again, as well as recommend him to family and friends.

We hired architect, Reggie Konet, to design and plan our new home. Reggie is an outstanding architect, knowledgeable, thoughtful, an intuitive listener, and a thorough planner. She is current with codes and regulations that led to a smooth permitting process. We highly recommend Reggie Konet if you are considering an architect for your upcoming job. We feel fortunate that Reggie guided, directed, and created our home plans.

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.
