Erik came out on a Sunday. A Sunday, mind you! He was courteous and stayed until everything was done properly, which included our local electric company coming out. And we felt his rate was very fair - he didn't soak us for weekend hours. If you're wondering if you should choose E.R.I.A. .... absolutely, do it!

Michael worked on my bathroom and renovated the shower, put in a new vanity for me and redid the electrical boxes. He was always on time, communicated any issues to me and found solutions for them. He was very knowledgeable and met my expectations. I am very impressed with the work he did and will definitely be using him again on any future projects that I have. Thank you so much Michael!

Matthew was punctual,professional and very pleasant. He brought his equipment, materials needed to fix my clogged up sink. Explained how gunky my pipes were and how to avoid the build up in the future. He is very reasonably priced for his services and no added surprises to his quote. Overall, I am a happy customer and am recommending him to my friends.

Les from LPM Equities was outstanding. I had several quotes for new apron installation and his pricing was honest and fair. In addition to pouring a new concrete apron, Les built a brick roadside mailbox. All I can say is wow!! I picked out the multi colored stone I liked and Les found some beautiful stone that he used to design address blocks for the side. Les created my address blocks by hand and I was amazed. The craftsmanship and design was A+. Hard to find someone who takes so much pride in their work. While working on my mailbox, several people stopped to see his work. They complimented him on the work and some asked him to build one for them as well. Cleaned up job site very well. Will definitely hire Les from LPM Equities again and will recommend him to others. Great contractor!

These guys are great. Very straight forward on pricing. Showed up when they said and got the work done perfectly. Did a few other side jobs for me, including building a barn door, that turned out well and when I was looking for the scrap lumber I found they had stacked it all neatly in an outbuilding. Would hire them again for any job.

I had a foyer floor replaced with ceramic tile and the job looks good after it was finally able to be done and David's work and his employee's work was very good. Because of rain and other commitments it took 3 days instead of the original 1 that was stated but the floor turned out very nice.

    Anthony and his team was very professional and easy to work with. I had them remove an unused chimney that was leaking in several locations. The job included demolition, framing, shingles and siding work. The price was reasonable and they answered the many questions I had. I would recommend them to a friend or family member and I'm looking to have them do some more work for me in the near future.

    Danny hung a kitchen cabinet in my apartment last year. It seemed like a challenge because the building was very old (built in the early 1900's) with concrete walls. But Danny overcame that challenge and put a 1 x 20 inch strip of wood onto the studs to help brace the cabinet, (because the walls were curved) before installation. So on the inside, he put screws that reinforced the cabinet , which worked very well. When finished, it looked great. It was solid. I was relieved to have a place for my dishes, and even my landlord said it was a great job. So if you're considering any new additions for your place of living, call Danny Stephens. Great quality work, because he cares.

    Originally, I was only looking to have a metal banister in my home replaced. Then I got to thinking, I have this contractor here, now is the time to start asking questions. Shawn was informative and helpful. I decided to have a laminate floor installed in my living room. He has a very nice team of guys working for him. They came in and put the floor down in no time at all. It looks amazing. Then on to my original intention, to replace that banister. Along the way, James had to make his own modifications and it turned out beautifully. I am very happy. I look forward to working with Shawn and his team again.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.  

    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.

    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.

    What do general contractors charge?

    If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

    • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
    • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
    • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
    • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.
