We needed a some serious pressure washing done on our tile roof here in West Linn from several years worth of moss build-up. The team from CWAGS showed up on time and were eager & ready to get to work. The job was huge, but they took their time to ensure that everything was done exceptionally well, down the very last detail. Their price was great, their attitudes and work ethic were clearly fantastic, and their work was beyond excellent. These variables make it really easy to recommend them to anyone, and we will be referring all of our friends and family to their business based on such a wonderful overall experience with them. It's rare to have such detail and care put into a job these days. We hire lots of contractors for all sorts of jobs, and we definitely feel like CWAGS is on the very top of that list now. We will hire them back undoubtedly.

When you feel comfortable enough to immediately start cracking jokes and trading stories with your contractor you know it's going to be a great experience. Glenn is easy going, knowledgeable, trustworthy and an all around friendly guy. He completed my work needed and went above and beyond the call of duty. I would definitely recommend Glenn for any of your future project needs!

We were very pleased with Compass/Chris Wilhelm. He did great work on our baseboards and fixings some issues another contractor has messed up. He showed up when he said he would and left a clean job site. We'll hire him again for sure.

We used Thumbtack.com to find fence contractors in our area. After going through about eight responses from Thumbtack we narrowed it down to three. After reviewing each of their website reviews and pictures. We then had each contractor come out on different days and give us a free written bid. We wanted a one sided top rail cedar fence 154ft plus two gates. After meeting all contractors and receiving their bids it came down to two contractors that were really close $$$. We choose A&C Innovative Contractors, John Chambers company for our fence job. We just got the best vibs from him and he accepted our input with-out exception. They started on the promised start date and finished in the five work days John had indicated on the contract. They hauled all the discarded materials, old fence, tree branches and shrubs away and left the backyard very clean. We are very happy with our newly installed fence and gates and John and his crews work ethics. Thank You John, Brian, RJ and Ben. Bob & Elise Firth Tualatin

Tim is excellent! And he did a fantastic job! We have worked with him before (this is our third time), recommend him to friends and family, and will definitely work with him again. Way back in 2013 we did a full home remodel and those contractors did a dreadful job on the walls. The texture was huge and gloppy, out of character with our 1945 home, and just poorly done. I'd been giving it the evil eye for years, but assumed it was cost prohibitive to fix. In comes Tim to save the day! He primed the terrible textured walls of our entire living area: Kitchen, Dining Room, Living Room, Hallway, and Bathroom. Then he did three coats of smooth skim coat to get rid of the terrible texture. Then we had him prime and paint the finished product. I can't even tell you how beautiful it looks!! We are SO grateful to finally have clean, consistently textured, beautiful walls. It seems like a small thing, but it makes all the difference feeling comfortable in our house. In the midst of planning this project, we also had a plumbing issue in the basement that required some drywall repair. Tim made it happen without a second thought.

José Rivera was in charge of the painting and flooring of my new home. He did a really good job. He was fast, and the price was just perfect! What I liked most of his work was that he was really careful with every detail and clean. I would for sure recommend him for any construction job.

Makaia and Crew did a 16yrd patio expansion and sidewalk, patio replacement. They removed the landscaping and concrete as need, and added the rebar and wire as needed without being asked about it, the exposed aggregate looks good and we are very happy with the results. Makaia cared about his work and the project and made sure it was done right and we where happy. It took longer than expected but was worth it.

Our job was a new concrete entry area and an addition to our pool deck. This was a small job that other contractors didn't want. Travis responded immediately and we had the bid and job completed within a week. The crew was very hard working and did a good job. Great service!

Duane was an awesome find!! His exceptional attention to detail was exactly what we needed! His knowledge was invaluable when discussing different options for each phase of our project. His diverse abilities allowed us to hire only one contractor which is time saving at the very least. He was able to take care of our entire project. We would hire him again in an instant!

Three Knights was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend them to anybody that needs a general contractor. They replaced my gate and reinforced it heavily so that hopefully the same problems won't happen again. They provided an estimate the same day requested and completed the job the following day - how's that for quick! They did not have the lowest bid - in fact they were the highest (only by about 15 dollars or so), but I chose them because they thoroughly explained the issues to me and how they would address each one. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and will use them for any work I might need in the future. To Three Knights: Thank you so much for your prompt and hard work - it is greatly appreciated.

I recently used Steve for a bathroom remodel in my home and I couldn't be happier with the result. Steve is very professional with good knowledge and experience. He finished my project on time and helped me stay within my budget, which was pretty important for me. Steve exceeded all expectations and I would definitely use him again in the future and I would recommend him to anyone else looking for a contractor. Thanks Steve!

We got a couple quotes and Jose gave an extremely competitive price and estimated less than the time frame of other contractors. In the end, he spent 3 days on the project, which was skim coating the ceilings in three rooms. He took great care with our property and furniture, and he checked in with us throughout the project to make sure we were satisfied. Overall, Jose was communicative, honest, and skilled. We would recommend him.

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.  

Why should you hire a contractor?

Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the contractor.

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.

When should you hire a contractor?

A few home remodeling projects can be done by an ambitious DIY-minded homeowner or local handyman, but many are best completed by a professional home renovation contractor. You should hire a contractor when you’re planning a large project that takes time, machinery or large tools, and several workers; a kitchen remodel, new bathroom or home addition will be most successful with a licensed, expert contractor at the helm. It’s particularly important to have a professional contractor on board for construction, electrical, plumbing and HVAC projects that require inspections to meet local building codes. Of course, you can hire a contractor for smaller projects, too, if you prefer to let an expert handle things like addition or removal of a wall, small framing projects, or anything that requires a permit.  

You should hire a contractor when you’re ready to start a remodeling project and you have plans, a budget and a timeline for the work in hand, but before any remodeling work begins.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
