John and Brian were great to work with. I had two bathrooms needing work, one of which was a full remodel and the other was a repair and floor tiling. We added heated flooring under the tile just in time for cooler weather which I love. I knew what I wanted in the design and they worked with me to make it happen. I like to do a lot of things myself and was pleased to find in them partners that allowed me to do what I was comfortable with and then picking up and completing what I was not. John is very honest and personable in his dealings and I felt that he valued me as a customer. Brian is very detailed and is a perfectionist. He spent a lot of time making sure things were aligned and correct and never left til I was happy. I will actually miss not having them around every day though I am very glad to have my bathrooms done and usable again! I highly recommend A&C Innovative Contractors and I will definitely use them again for my next project!

Stacey did an excellent job building our playstructure for my kiddos. He was fair on negotiating a price and showed up ready to work. Worked late into the night and came back on a Sunday to finish the job. Would highly recommend. We are already planning future projects to hire him for.

We had such a hard time finding someone to come out and complete this project. We were so happy to find Lino who was quick to respond and was even able to move his schedule around to paint our office before a last minute event. He was professional and worked quickly and did a great job! We plan on using him again if we have any needs.

Victor replaced a tar roof on my office building. I am very pleased with the new roof. What makes Victor shine is his honesty and willingness to work through difficult situations such as short notice changes to the roofing schedule. He has a great crew that works hard. Victor is easy to reach (a real plus for a contractor) and quick to respond to messages. I would use him again for any work on my building that he is qualified for.

We hired Nathaniel Rotta with West Coast Design and Graphics to draw up remodel plans for our home. He came out right away to get the information to do the bid. His prices were extremely reasonable and very competitive! Nathaniel's work and communication was exceptional. He had our plans drawn quickly and professionally. We would recommend him to anyone who needs an architect and will definitely hire him again!

Starting out with the basics they showed up on time, did what I asked them and cleaned up afterwards. These are important aspects of a job that makes it much more pleasant. In addition, I needed them to build a cat ramp and they did a great job at designing and building a sturdy ramp that should last for years. I was happy with their work and I would recommend them.

Tucker did an amazing job building our new deck! Our old deck, while functional, was a bad use of space in a small backyard. He took our somewhat nebulous vision for a new deck and ran with it, making sure to involve us every step of the way and paying close attention to detail. Tucker was always clear about outlining the steps and the goals for each day and made sure to ask if he wasn't sure about a particular detail. The end result is a terrific new deck that fully utilizes our small backyard space and fits in perfectly with our modern townhouse. We couldn't be more pleased, and Tucker was great to work with!

We had David trim out some windows on a stucco exterior that had been installed previously. He did a nice job installing them and painted them all to match. In addition David installed interior lights in our house and he also did some work staining the fence out back. Very happy, would recommend him for further projects.

Bruce Sternberg designed and served as general contractor for two major projects for us: a complete renovation of the second floor of our house and the design and construction of an art studio building on our property. The second floor of our 1912 bungalow was dark and had much unusable space and no closets. Bruce's design opened up the space to include two good size bedrooms, huge closets, and larger completely renovated bathroom. He also added windows and skylights. The space is now bright, functional, and truly beautiful. The studio is a freestanding building designed to capture the light and provide all that is necessary for the large paintings and mixed media pieces my husband does. The studio has electricity, heating and plumbing, and Bruce designed it so that it could be converted to other uses (such as a guest house) in the future. When we originally met with Bruce, we had only vague ideas about what we wanted -- more space, more light, and more of "us" in the house. Similarly, my husband just knew he wanted a space to paint and display/store completed artwork. Bruce spent a lot of time with us to understand our sense of esthetic and how we would use the spaces. He also looked a lot at the exterior of our house and was committed to making the interior beautiful and functional while also respecting and enhancing the integrity of the exterior. We had met with other architects but none "got us" like Bruce did or offered such a beautiful, comprehensive plan. We also really appreciated the fact that Bruce would also serve as general contractor and would be on site throughout the construction. Like all projects, this took a bit longer than we would have liked and there were a few hitches along the way as would be expected in an older home like ours. However, that was all forgotten when the work was completed and exceeded our expectations. We truly couldn't be happier with how both projects turned out. A good friend of mine regular reports that she has "bathroom envy" when she visits and looks at the two skylights and beautiful wood and tile work in the bathroom Bruce designed. I get similar oohs and aahs about the two huge closets in the master bedroom. Bruce added two new windows to the second bedroom and designed lighting that makes the space perfect for a relaxing reading room, display space for more art, and a wonderful guest bedroom when family and friends visit. We are equally thrilled with the studio building. Fellow artists and clients who come to see my husband's art, always note what a wonderful space he works in. The way Bruce sited the building created different outdoor spaces for us - with a dog run on one side of the studio and the entrance to our garden on the other side.

    I worked with Dave Jones, owner of D & J Remodeling, to completely craft my first home- which was a complete mess prior to his work. Dave graciously joined me at the home prior to my even putting an offer on it to help me determine how much money I would need to put into the home and if it would be worthwhile to contemplate purchase. That first day he gave me an "on target" estimate of about how much I ended up spending. Due to the type of loan, Dave put in a lot of time and effort for me up front, before the project even started to help assure that the financing would come through for me, he worked with the mortgage broker and the FHA rehab specialist to make my offer work for the seller. Dave started work on the project as soon as the deal closed and worked tirelessly to meet deadlines and make my home exactly how I wanted it. Dave and his staff are incredibly friendly and polite and completely trustworthy. I spent a great deal of time at the construction site and they were great about showing me what I could do to help and teaching me techniques as needed- Dave worked with me to allow me to do the things I wanted to try my hand at to help keep costs down, but was happy to take things off my plate at a moment's notice for a very reasonable price. I did not have any budgetary surprises- if there was deviation from the original plan and agreed upon amount Dave discussed this with me up front, outlining options and finding ways to save money in one area that I could apply to a more necessary area. In the end, Dave was completely within budget-the overages were all "add on's" that I elected to have him do that were outside of the original scope, and even those he managed to get done for a very reasonable cost. Dave's diplomatic approach and work experience came through in many different situations over the course of the 4 month project and his involvement in my project made the whole experience a very enjoyable one. I was amazed at the amount of work done for the budget that I had to work with, and was 100% satisfied with all of the workmanship of the finished product. In the end, I turned the home into a rental and Dave immediately stepped up to help with a couple of loose ends to get the place ready for a renter; again, working well past expected hours in a time crunch to make sure the place was top notch. I will definitely call Dave for any future home remodeling projects-big or small!

    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.

    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.

    Be sure to check out our smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

    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.
