We have a 150 year old barn where we have hosted over 650 weddings and receptions. We had one scheduled for Saturday, July 1, 2017. On June 29th we found out our electric was down. We found E.R.I.A. on Thumbtack, and told them we needed our electric fixed on Friday for the wedding and reception on Saturday. They came at 1PM, Friday, and had our problems fixed by 4PM. They were pleasant, friendly, thorough, found the problem, fixed it, made certain everything was in working order, and put everything back in place. They were great. My son and I have a residential design/build company, and we will definitely use them as an electric sub-contractor in the future. E.R.I.A. is a great company, and we recommend them very highly. Eric and Erin are a couple of great, very professional, electricians...and good guys!

We've been renovating our house for several months and the final step before selling it was having it professionally cleaned. Amy and her crew came over three days in a row to finish the job. We're moving out of state and they accommodated us despite our hectic travel schedules. The house is gleaming and sale-ready including the partially finished basement, garage and a detached guest house. They took special care to clean up dust and grime that had settled during painting and construction. Their price was very competitive compared to other quotes we got. Highly recommended!

I hired John for a residential appraisal and am very happy with the result. He took his time and was very detail oriented. He explained his findings throughout the inspection and the report he provided was thorough and detailed as well. Would recommend and use his services again.

GM and staff went above and beyond to help us with our projects. He was eager to help us with our silly questions and many projects we have going on. He installed drainage, created a 30+ ton gravel driveway, installed over 600' of 4 rail wood fencing and excavated a 900' creek to prevent flooding. We highly recommend GM Landscape Construction and plan to use them again with any future projects.

Dan was a pleasure to work with and his crew was very professional and courteous. They performed a complete tear off of 2 layers of shingles and installed the new roof in 2 days for my large ranch house. I would strongly recommend using Dan for your house construction projects because I know I will in the future. Jim

Had a room under construction insulated with spray foam. JR performed the job just as I requested. Excellent efficiency and clean up after the job was done. I've had sprayed foam done before and this is the way to go if your insulating any room. I will use this company again in the future. Highly recommend them.

We were so happy with every aspect of our relationship with Chris tian Construction. It was agonizing for us to decide on the shingles but Robert made it alot more bearable by not pressuring us + his knowledge of the products out there was very helpful. His help with the insurance claim was outstanding. Roofers were all friendly, eager to please + you could tell they took pride in their work and reputation.

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.  

What is a general contractor?

When starting a home remodel or new construction project, you will probably hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to take a set of building plans and construct them as outlined. The general contractor may help perform the day-to-day building, or they may just hire workers and oversee all the work activities. In either case, the job of the general contractor is to see that your project gets built.

When you have a building project, ask for bids from various contractors. The bids tell you how much each will charge and what their scope of work will be. Once you have selected a bid, you sign a contract with that general contractor outlining the specifics of the project and the milestones during the project when they will receive payment installments. Once the contract is official, the general contractor will bring in their crew to begin construction. The contractor will manage the workers and subcontractors (anyone who doesn’t work directly for their company but that they need to outsource, like a marble installation pro), order all the materials, obtain work permits, and confirm that all the workers and subcontractors are completing their projects as planned. They typically handle all the payments to the workers and subcontractors, and send you invoice. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.  If you are organized and competent to oversee construction projects, and are able to make sure everything is being built properly and meeting code, it’s possible you can be your own general contractor.  

Why should you hire a contractor?

Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the contractor.

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 do you choose a commercial general contractor?

A commercial contractor provides similar services as a residential general contractor but specializes in working with large-scale projects for businesses, schools, nonprofits, governments and development firms. When researching commercial general contractors, review their portfolio of work and confirm they have ample experience working in the area you need. For example, if you are building a small strip mall, ask if the contractors have experience successfully incorporating all the needed elements such as a parking lot, meeting ADA requirements, accessing the proper permits, and completing work on time.

Once you’ve identified several qualified candidates, request bids for your project and then compare the scope of work with your needs and budget. Your commercial general contractor should oversee design, permitting, construction, materials purchase, and adherence to building code and zoning regulations, as well as sticking to an agreed-upon budget and schedule. It’s important to establish clear communication with your future commercial general contractor, as this will mean a smoother process for everyone. For all these reasons, it’s also especially important to follow a few smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.
