Julie and Andy are great to work with. They took on a project that had ideas but no plan. The end result was a good one - and we appreciate their work greatly. We wanted landscaping around the house that required little maintenance and yet looked good. Andy recommended and put in river rock. We were hesitant at first but the end result was good. Julie and Andy took on changes with enthusiasm and offered ideas based on experience. Do be patient as they are busy - good contractors are always busy!

This guy was amazing. On time, very friendly and genuine, and did a fantastic and quick job. He knew exactly what he was doing and though it wasn’t a one for one switch out for our disposal, he was able to modify what we had to make it work perfectly. Very knowledgeable and tested everything in front of me and made sure I was happy. He did such a good job I asked him to quote out a much bigger bathroom repair that I need done to fix previous issues of a contractor. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

All in One did a fantastic job. They were out the same day the quote was needed. Took care of several projects, and had the best quote out of three. Professional, courteous, clean, and fast. As a real estate agent, I will be using them in the future and will recommend to all my clients.

Says what he is going to do and then does it. Should be that simple but a unique quality these days in my experience with other contractors. They were responsive to my request, made a time slot available, showed up on time, and was concerned about doing the job right instead of just doing the job. Thanks.

We would DEFINITELY use PFC again! Willis Preston was excellent at communicating....responsive and responsible. His guidance and professional advice was great throughout the whole process. He was patient and thorough with me with all my questions for months leading up to the project start date. Of all of the contractors of used throughout the remodeling of our home, he was the best of them. The scope was always clear, the workmanship was top notch...the people that worked on the project were great and trustworthy...and Willis was great at talking through any issues that came up (issues with the home, not issues with him or his work). I cannot stress how great it was to have them install hardwood flooring throughout my first floor. I manage tech/business related projects for a living. His skill and professionalism, fit and finish was top notch!

Tom exceeded our expectations installing our landscape lighting. He was very responsive, friendly and offered expert advice on how to insure the job was not only completed timely but anticipated future issues based on his experience. I had several other vendors contact me for this job, but only Tom gave me the confidence he knew what he was doing and treated us very fairly. I really appreciated his by the hour billing rather than just trying to get as much as he could out of us. Welcome change from the numerous contractors we have dealt with in the past.

This contractor has been very upfront with all the work and has informed me the steps of the project and has taken my input with desires and wants. The cost and reasons for the expenses have been totally justified and appreciated. I've had experience with some "jack-legs" and totally appreciate the work this contractor has done and will definitely utilized the services of this company for further work on my home. I highly recommend this contractor.

Rick did a kitchen floor for us and we could not be more pleased with the result. He worked by himself and finished in a timely manner at way less than the big box store contractors.....D.M.A.

I had sod placed. Beautiful job. You hear many stories about contractors etc, not showing up at a schedule time not with this company. Alex was on time for the estimate and when there was a delay in laying the sod due to rain I was notified. Would definitely recommend Lawns by Design.

I would definitely recommend Andriy to do a job st my house again. More than his ability to get the job done , is his honesty and integrity. No jobs is without problems, but those problems allow you to wether you are dealing with a reputable contractor. And we were!! Andriy was always responsive to our interests, we were very satisfied with the outcome of our project and will recommend him to anyone who needs some home improvement job done..

This was my first time using Thumbtack for a job. Jeff was simply amazing. He came and inspected my roof, giving me a fair cost to do the job. He then spent almost 2 weeks advocating on my behalf with my insurance company to ensure I got everything I needed to do the job. My insurance company gave us both the run around, but he remained professional and patient (while I was losing my mind). After starting 5 days earlier than expected, he ran into some serious problems with my roof that wasn’t covered under the claim. He took the time every step of the way to explain to me the condition of my roof. He purchased just the right amount of materials and didn’t mark up the price for his profit. He showed up on time for the job, even working the holiday to get the job done. His crew was very hard working as well. My only problem was wishing I knew he was also skilled at other areas so that I could have hired him for all of my jobs. It’s hard to find honest, trustworthy, and competent contractors. Delta construction is all 3. I have them on speed dial for all my future needs.

Thompson painting (James ) painted a large powder room and bathroom and an accent wall in our master bedroom. In addition he ended up doing extra things like moving some furniture and filling in some cracks around my tub and other problems that we had. I give James the highest recommendation. He is a great painter takes great pride in his work he is kind and trustworthy and we liked him so much we convinced him to have some spaghetti for dinner after a very hard days work. We will definitely call him again as needed and he's even coming back to finish some little odds and ends in our home after the paint dries. Also he was helpful with paint color advise, and goes out of his way to do a good job

        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.
