Bob did some masonry work on the outside of our brick home that we were in the process of selling. He was able to come out immediately, his prices were fair, and he worked very efficiently. When the buyer came back out to our house to check the work, she requested that a few more spots be filled in. I called Bob and he came out immediately and did not charge me to fill in the remaining cracks. We were able to close on time because of how quickly he worked. I will definitely use Bob again! I cannot thank him enough for his wonderful, efficient work on our house!

Overall great experience! The job was to extend our fence about 50 ft, put up new gates, cap the front, put in doggie windows and remove the old gates and fence that was replaced. Pros: -Quality work, fence looks great and is well built. -Good price even after pricing issue. -Through in doggie windows and cap. Cons: -Mis-quoted materials, but worked to resolution. -Start day communication issue, Lines weren't marked soon enough. Overall, a 4.5 which I round up to a 5! The cons were minor but worth noting for a heads up to the contractor. We recommend and are currently planning on having him do the other side of the house!

He described the job...repairing the siding, rebuilding a small balcony, creating a small rock patio and replacing sliding doors with French doors. He went over the pricing...very reasonable. Did an excellent job. He is coming back to replace another slider and screen door. Would use him again and again

Gabe was an excellent communicator and performed solid work. Never had the feeling of "am I gonna get screwed by this contractor" with Gabe. Will recommend to others and will use for work again after competitive quoting. Gabe's quote was competitive and I felt that he understood the work. Was satisfied with all aspects of his work from base bid to extras.

From start to finish it was a fantastic experience. In just under a month, Clere Enterprise Group built and installed a 3-shelf microwave cabinet that matched the style and color of existing cabinets for me. Michael consulted with me on the best place for the cabinet considering my future renovation plans. There were a couple of delays, but they were totally understandable and caused me no issues. He more than made up for it by keeping me informed and delivering a high quality product. He even fixed a couple other hinges on existing cabinet doors. I am extremely pleased with the professional, quality craftsmanship. I highly recommend this business and will be using them again!

    Marshall is building a lake house for us. With his input, we designed our house and he had it drawn up by one of his subcontractors. We had several meetings and revisions without any reservations. Once the house was designed, he handled all aspects of building the house thru his handpicked subcontractors. Before each phase of the project began, we would meet with Marshall and line out our choices and preferences. We could change our mind throughout as long as the next phase had not begun. We could even change at that point if we were willing to accept the expense. Marshall gave us a budget price, but all expense decisions were left to us because Marshall's approach to billing was to charge the subcontractor price plus 10 percent. We are happy with his work and would highly recommend his company.

It was done in a manner I would have done if I was doing it myself, and I have a reputation for attention to detail. I would highly recommend Keith to others for their projects..

    Zack has performed a wide range of work for me from as simple as changing light bulbs I couldn't reach, repairing door knobs and some assistance with yard work. He also cleared out my storage building and things I needed removed from my garage and hauled the debris to the disposal site. He assisted in the demolition of my kitchen to make way for a remodel. He built a large shelving system in my garage for storage. He has also done caulking and general maintenance I have asked of him. He also found a buyer for a car I no longer needed.

    Brandan is awesome! We moved to Bartlesville in April 2015 after buying a foreclosed home built in the 50's. Brandan helped us from day one with a complete demo and rebuild from the studs, rafters and joists. It was a huge project. He replaced all our plumbing with new PEX piping, and installed new drainpipes in the entire house. He installed fresh drywall on walls and ceilings and completed the mudding, taping, and sanding. He put in new subfloors, added 2 new walls, closed off a doorway and created a walk thru from the kitchen. He helped us install all new cabinets and also built several custom cabinets that saved us money. He installed all new ducting for our new HVAC and a new whole house fan in the attic. He installed a complete new bathroom for us. The list of what he did is endless! I can't remember it all! We have purchased a second property and plan to build a rental home on it. Brandan will be totally involved in the entire project from start to finish. He also is going to help us put on a new roof on our large detached garage and build a deck off the bedroom and install french doors leading to it. Hire Brandan, you will be happy!

    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.
