I utilized Maxwell for an external repair project, to seal brick on my building and stop moisture/water from entering through the walls. Robin and Frank were very responsive and professional. I was satisfied with the job that they did and the quality of their work. They were also reasonably priced. I am planning to work with them again on some future projects.

Working with Garage Entry Systems was one of the best decisions we've made since buying our new home (if not the best). I know that's a strong statement to make, but I'm trying to convey the true sense of how much my wife and I value the work Andrew and his team did for us. As first time homeowners, the journey has been fraught with uneasy decision making about whether to trust the estimate from one contractor or the other, especially when their estimate differences can range in the thousands. Often, contractors will come in with a strong sales pitch about how x, y, or z about them is going to make them THE best bet for us. Andrew came in to talk to us about our project (which was for interior doors), listened to what we wanted to do, and got straight to the point -- without dwelling on any of the other sales pitchy stuff -- and started measuring and contemplating reframing necessary doorways, right then and there, so that he could provide us with an estimate, up front, which wound up being the exact amount we paid. They're on time, fairly priced, and (an added bonus!) extremely friendly and professional. I don't want my review to read like some generated, fake review, I'm just trying to be sincere in saying that this team is great. We WILL be hiring them again for other projects we have in mind for down the road.

Leo was awesome. Ordered a bed which came un-assembled. And when I say un-assembled, I mean the bed arrived in a box with a bunch of wood and hardware - it was like someone took a puzzle, dumped it in a box and mailed it to me. When I opened it I freaked! There was no way I was going to even try to tackle this. I kept putting it off and putting it off because I didn't want to deal with putting that thing together. Needless to say I am not mechanically inclined, nor do I claim or care to be. I advertised the project online and Leo responded with the fairest price for the job AND was the most professional person to respond. After the project was finished, in record time and completely perfect I might add, we asked him if he would be interested in completing other projects in our home - we have so many things that need fixed, repaired, installed etc. Bathroom, bedroom, kitchen - you name it. My father is in poor health lately and, although very mechanically inclined, is unable to fix, repair and install things like he used to. Therefore, a lot of things are in disrepair and there exists a lot of uncompleted projects. We decided that we could really use a guy like Leo. We asked him about painting a few rooms. He gave us a fair estimate and we know, if he continues to work for us, will produce nothing but the best! He actually just called to make sure that we receive his estimate. I spoke with him and, again, he is very professional, and he made sure he followed-up with a formal estimate for the painting job we had asked about in a timely fashion. I am glad he called, because, although I kept thinking, "I need to leave Leo a review," I kept being interrupted by other things. So, to sum it up, if you need a professional handyman/jack-of-all-trades, able to fix, install, repair, etc. (and don't be afraid to ask him if he is willing or able to do a certain project - he is forthright and capable, with big jobs or small), don't just consider Leo, HIRE him already, for goodness sake! PS: My father is about the pickiest person ever created and EVEN HE WAS SATISFIED with Leo and his work...how about that?

I hired Jason to install new cabinets in my kitchen. This being my first remodeling project on my house, I got several quotes for the job. While Jason's quote wasn't the lowest, he saw every angle of the project along with all potential issues which may occur. He got the job done on the timeline he stated and for the price he quoted. He was able to save my counter-tops, which was the most important aspect of the job to me. I already have several more projects I want to accomplish and will hire Jason for all of them. I highly recommend him.

Austin was a total professional. We were able to work together on a price that was fair and he did a great job. He took everything out of the house and cleaned out/up as agreed. I will hire him again! As a personal aside, my car battery died the day of the estimate and he took the time to buy cables and rescue me! A true gentleman!

Spot brick re-pointing and chimney repair. Eric was very nice to work with, personable, not arrogant like another guy we had give us an estimate. His is just a small business, local & we like to give work to companies like this. His crew was hard-working plus Eric works right along with them on many jobs. The work was done well and we will call Eric if we need this type of work done again.

Rob was very quick to respond to give me an estimate. They also came out and fixed my siding the next day (on Saturday)! It was also fixed very quickly and looks really good. It doesn't seem like it will come out again. Very pleased. :)

We could not be happier and we're so glad to have found Joe & his company. His knowledge and experience sold us from the start. His professionalism and communication sealed the deal. He was great to work with and the project turned out exactly as we had hoped. From start to finish, it was the best experience. We highly recommend him and can't wait to work with him again.

I put out a request on Thumbtack and got a quick response from Dino of Decano Construction. He came out to our house that same day and took a look at my driveway. We had been debating between concrete and asphalt and I wanted Decano to give me an estimate on concrete because the pictures of their work on Thumbtack are so nice. Unfortunately, a new concrete driveway wasn't in our budget and we couldn't hire Decano for that reason. But, in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to give them a call. Dino was courteous, knowledgeable and professional all around.

I have used Woods Construction two times now. First project was a major one: rip out kitchen cabinets, install new ones, put sink, dishwasher, ceiling fan, flooring in, repair ceiling. They also did two bathroom renovations, painted entire floor & trim. They did a great job! He stayed on the time line he promised. One area of the bathroom needed a touch up and he came back immediately to fix. His prices are competitive. I am so glad I used him because I tried another contractor at the same time for the outside work and it was a nightmare. Since then, I have used him again for outside work doing a set of cement steps. Again he did a professional job! I will be using Woods Construction again! I am very pleased.

I hired Nate and his crew to do some landscaping work for us. Their professionalism, quality of work and customer service was exceptional, that we expanded their scope of work to include concrete driveway, exterior French drain and site grading. Great company to retain and I would certainly work with them again. You can’t go wrong!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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 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 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.

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.
