Installed a large new vanity with top and hooked up the plumbing to it. Sounds like a simple job but for one the drain location in the wall was in a very awkward position in relation to the sink and Glenn used all of the right fittings to make a strong and lifelong connection. Second the vanity top was about 1" too large for the opening meaning he had to remove a cabinet in order to get it in place. A lot of extra work was put in and I didnt hear one complaint. I have flipped multiple houses and worked in commercial construction for 10 years and he has been one of the easiest people to deal with, especially if something unexpected comes up (which it always will). Thanks Glenn!

Not having done a lot with thumbtack in the past, I really wasn't sure what to expect. However John with A & C Innovative Construction was super professional and quick to get to my project. He was so easy to work with that he just got more of my business for another project. Being that I work in the industry, that says a lot of him and his work.

Mario and the guys at PDX junk busters offer a valuable service that everyone eventualy needs. I use the service for my tile company ounce or twice a week and when ever I have something household related too. I like the idea of useing gig economy principles to open up acsess for everyday consumers and to provide commercial service with speed and urgency not known to the industry. The value i get from pdx Junkbusters comes from four distinct characteristics: -Timeliness and flexibility- In hours of operation with weekend appointments and fast response times. -Prices- Some how, the best prices I can find. Low minimums no fees. -Professionalism- These guys are outstanding gentalmen and true entrepenures. -Knowledge and expertise- they seem to know their stuff when it comes to proper waste management. I've been enlighten on such topics as, city/county laws, differences in refuse transfer stations and how it affects my buisness ect. Ounce you start using this service you won't know how you ever managed without it.

We hired Victor Carrillo and his company about two and a half months ago. We needed a shop and they were really quick about finishing it. Once they started they did not stop until it was finished. His company was done with my shop in about 3 weeks. I personally think that he and his company exceeded expectations, I had gotten work done by other companies in different areas of the state but none like his company. I was expecting to clean up a little bit of mess from the work but I was surprised that I had to do nothing, literally, all I had to do was hire him and he took care of the rest. The best thing of all is that he provided this excellent service for less than what I had paid before to other companies.

Was minor job of resetting a deck support. Olvera crew showed up within an hour of bid and made permanent repairs. Competing bid from Home Advisor was $600... Olvera did it for $80. Very fair price for the work. Seems most companies looking only for big jobs... home owners need small jobs fixed too.

You will not find a more reputable contractor for your roofing and home improvement needs. Have known them for years, and integrity defines their work. They get it right the first time every time. When you hire someone with principles and professionalism, it radiates outward into everything they do. I would highly recommend A Team Construction Remodeling!

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.  

What do construction project managers do?

Construction project managers help in all stages of your construction project, starting from the very first step. Typically paid a percentage of a total project cost, they are part of the design and planning process and help ensure seamless communication between the design parties and the construction team. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, their scope of work includes preparing cost estimates, budgets and work timetables; interpreting and explaining contracts and technical information to other professionals; reporting work progress and budget to clients; collaborating with architects, engineers and other construction pros; selecting subcontractors and scheduling and coordinating their tasks; responding to work delays, emergencies and other problems; and ensuring compliance with legal requirements, building and safety codes, and other regulations.

The work of construction project managers may seem very similar to that of general contractors, but there are some critical differences. One difference is that, unlike most general contractors, project managers are not engaged in the actual construction — they are onsite overseeing the work of subcontractors. Another key difference is that project managers are hired during the design phase, while general contractors are hired after plans have been made. The project manager is generally paid a percentage of the total project cost, while the general contractor is more typically paid according to the bid they gave to build your project.  

How do I find out if a contractor is licensed?

It’s important to know if your project requires work by a licensed professional, as licensing laws can vary by state, locality, and job details. You can find general licensing information online at the government websites that handle occupational licensing for a given profession in your state or location. Some states designate a project cost over which you have to hire a licensed contractor. To find qualified licensed contractors, search your state’s licensing board. For example, in California, the Department of Consumer Affairs operates a searchable database through the Contractors State License Board. In some states, contracting licenses are provided at a regional level. You can find links to specific databases on BRB Publications’ Occupational Licensing page. Red flags that a contractor may not be licensed or may be providing an expired or false license number are unreasonably low bids or a request for complete payment upfront.

How much does a project manager charge per hour?

You may choose to hire a construction project manager for your residential or commercial project. For the hands-on homeowner who wants to be involved in home construction but isn’t comfortable hiring subcontractors, a construction project manager can oversee these relationships and supervise labor. Typically, construction project managers charge a fee that is a flat percentage of the total construction project cost. This may range from 10 percent to 15 percent, depending on the company and the services they provide. This means a $30,000 home remodel project would have a construction project management fee of $3,000-$4,500. Hiring a construction project manager generally precludes the markup on subcontractor labor charged by a general contractor. The drawback to this choice is that, unlike a general contractor, the construction project manager won’t be financially responsible for the work of the subcontractors. For larger projects, you may hire a construction project manager who will also hire a general contractor. This provides the benefits of the general contractor along with the management services of the project manager, who will be on board from the beginning. The construction project manager will be involved in the design phase and work with the architects and the building crew, facilitating a smoother overall process.

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.
