Nov. of 2013 I called Jason to get a quote to re-roof our home and shop. From the moment I met him, I knew I had met a man of integrity. I had been talking to contractors for three years prior to finding Jason, so you know, I did my research. He is an expert in what he does. Our roof (especially the valley had many issues-house was built in 1945) presented a lot of problems that any other roofer would NOT have handled correctly, causing us to do damage control just a few years down the line had we hired anyone other than Jason and his crew to deal with it. He is an amazing craftsman, not just a roofer. The honesty and integrity that he exudes made getting our roof replaced by his company a blessing. My husband and I cannot recommend Jason and Grace Roofing & Con. enough. Just meet him, you'll see what what I mean.

Sue was an excellent house designer to work with on our Corvallis site. We wanted to work with a new building material (Faswall) that was made in our local area. We were completely satisfied with Sue's due diligence in design, house visits and follow ups after construction was completed. Our work relationship has developed into a firm friendship and we recommend her to anyone who is considering a new home or changes to an existing one.

Great company, They went above and beyond my expectations. From the beginning they did their best to fit me in their schedule as soon as possible. I usually do not like sellers very much but five star exteriors are very professional in their presentation and they educate you too about the roof and how important ventilation is, it was an amazing experience to hear them talk about ventilation, They really know the trade, I had other bids and no one mentioned anything about the issue with ventilation in my home. The owner of the company personally came to present me with their products and who they are, he did this in order to save me money on skipping the seller's commission, I was very happy with their job at the end of the project, I would highly recommend Five star Exteriors, they are a growing company with the best people and I am sure they will be very successful.

The organization, speed, cleanliness, and relaxed attitude. Before we start a house, we like to have everything in line all the way up thru finish. A great plan on how to accomplish the job leads to speed , organization and everyone can have a relaxed attitude. Nothing ever needs to be a problem. Stress is a created condition that there is no place for on our sites. Being clean is just the way we are.

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.
