I had Eclipse Cunstructors put a new roof on the house I recently sold. Their price was very competitive and the roof came out great. It looked really good and it was done in the timeframe I was quoted. I then had a new 6ft. stockade fence installed by Eclipse and couldn't be happier with the results. Again the price was great and the results were even better. I would highly recommend them!

I highly recommend Rich from R. Trout House to Home for any of your home remodeling projects. He was so easy to work with, very personable and polite. He also made suggestions on designing plans but was not over the top and made me feel as if it was my project and not his. Definitely happy with my decision to hire R. Trout House to Home.

I hired Johnston Home Improvment to build a fire wood shed based on a photograph. I got extactly what I asked for, on time and paid the price I was quoted. The owner is very personable, has a strong work ethic and delivers a quality product. I plan using his skills for a master bath re-do. I strongly recommend this contractor.

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.

He has been great to woke with so far. He had a very fast turn over with our project - and the changes. I believe he will be great during the project itself as well! My project is an addition on my existing home.

Our home circa 1870 had a very old kitchen with shutter style cabinets built into the wall. Brian came in and designed a modern kitchen that gave us countertops where there were none! A glass tile backsplash..... New repurposed cabinetry! It is wonderful!

It is our pleasure to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Eric Jahnke of Veteran Construction. Eric was the contractor for a remodeling project of our 15’x21’ sunroom in the Fall of 2013. We had no prior relationship with Eric, who was recommended by a friend of ours. The scope of the remodeling involved re-building the three exterior walls, window replacement (6 windows and 1 patio door), siding replacement, construction of 1 deck and stairs, ceiling replacement (pine), laying hardwood floor to match existing floors in the house, and all of the finish drywall and trim work in the interior. Eric’s services as a contractor were invaluable, and we are extremely pleased with the final result. The quality of the work was consistently top notch. Throughout the project, we were impressed with Eric’s commitment to generating a top quality product, rather than maximizing his profit margin. He kept us closely informed of completion dates of the different phases of the project. Eric’s communication was clear, informative, and helpful, and he was always available by phone. When unforeseen problems surfaced, Eric worked diligently with us to identify a solution that was acceptable to us. In closing, we are very pleased with the final product which Eric was instrumental in delivering, and we are extremely impressed with his work as a contractor. We would not hesitate to hire Eric again, or to recommend him to our friends and neighbors.

    Michael is an excellent contractor to work with. He doesn't just do what you have hired him to do - he points out what needs to be done to do the job right so that you don't have to have someone come back and fix it again. He has an excellent work ethic and his prices are exactly right for the job.

    Over the years Patrick has done many projects for us. He has remodeled our bathroom, laundry area, installed a front door and stove hood in our kitchen, repaired our main staircase, replaced our garage roof and most recently designed and built a 15 x 23 deck with a stone planter and paved walkway. He also refurbished a rental home for our daughter. Patrick always does an outstanding job. He is very professional and stands by everything he does. The deck design was beautiful and the result was exactly what he promised. We could not be happier. I highly recommend Patrick for any home improvement or design and build project. I am sure we will have more projects for him in the future!

    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.
