After having 8 different remodeling contractors come and give us estimates for our bathroom remodel, unfortunately none of them were within our budget. Then the storms rolled in and our roof started leaking and Ricky with 1st Quality Roofing & Remodeling came by and gave us an estimate for the roof AND an estimate for our bathroom remodel. We struck the. Jackpot with Ricky and his crew. Not only was Ricky at our house everyday during the roofing job but he, himself walked around our property and picked every nail and roofing rack that was on the ground just to insure that none of our children stepped on one or that anyone drove over one. Once they completed the roof, which turned out better than I could have ever requested, he started the process of gutting our bathroom. The bathroom was a full gut job, and they finished it in 1 week. He removed the bathtub and he tiled from the floor to ceiling a new shower with gorgeous mosaic tile detail throughout. He tiled the floor and tiled mosaic tile from floor to ceiling behind the new floating vanity and it looks amazing!! Everything was textured, painted and new base boards were installed, which we didnt expect because we didnt know that was even part of the estimate he quoted. I cannot praise Ricky and his amazing crew enough. I would recommend and WILL recommend him to EVERYONE I know. If you need ANYTHING done with your home, roof, remodel, landscape, deck built, and want it done RIGHT, with a trustworthy contractor AND at an AFFORDABLE price, then look no further because 1st Quality Roofing & Remodeling is the ONLY call you need to make!

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.
