Kevin built a custom shelf in an existing opening above a gas fireplace as the space would not accommodate our 50 inch TV. The results were much more than expected! Kevin built a beautiful shelf/mantel that looks like it was original to the space. Kevin was friendly, professional, courteous, fairly priced and completed the project in a timely manner. We would recommend him without hesitation.

Randy thanks for fixing my Truth crank vinyl replacement window. Services planned during free estimate were no different than those rendered. Once the scheduled parts were ordered, we got exactly what we needed without being overcharged. Friendly customer service from a very professional team. When hubby doesn't have time to do the needed house repairs, we will call upon Randy--our new handyman. Thanks for our first well done job. We look forward to working with you and De again.

Austin did a great job. The job was less labor intensive than he originally thought, so the final price was less than the estimate as well.

Working with Rich and the  I Know A Guy...Renovations LLC team was a breeze. He responded quickly to our inquiry with a fair estimate of the project cost. When it came time to do the work, the team was punctual, professional and meticulous. The end result was a bathroom and roof repair that not only looks great but will add value to our home. My husband and I are thrilled to have this project done and look forward to calling on I Know A Guy...Renovations LLC for future projects.

Mr. Panarella did an excellent job on the "re"-remodeling of our master bath shower. Our first contractor was incompetent and gave us a shower that leaked with terrible looking tile and grouting job to say the least. Lungi came to the rescue. He gutted the shower down to the studs again and built us a beautifully tiled non leaking walk in shower. Throughout the project, Luigi proved to be a very hard working and a talented craftsman who I must say did an outstanding job. I highly recommend Mr. Panarella and we will be contacting him again in the near future for additional home improvement projects we want completed. He is a fair, honest, reliable person as well as a COMPETENT experienced craftsman.

Received a very fair estimate. They were on time and very professional. My tree was very overgrown and dangerously close to two houses. The tree was trimmed then cut down with a great deal of skill. Highly recommend!!

Service was very professional and timely...I was recommended creative renovations through a friend and decided to give them a try. I decidend to have them give me an estimate on building an extension to my outside deck and honestly couldn’t have been happier. The price I was quoted ended up being only a fraction of the quality. Pretty soon me and my wife plan on doing some work in our basement and remodeling our bathroom. I will be calling them back for that job as well! Thanks so much for your superior service guys, I will be telling all my friends about you!

Our renovation project was fairly complex and I was very nervous signing up with contractors. we had very limited time to get the project done. I was happy to sign up with Chris as he was very anxious and very much interested to get the project started. Also, he walked thru detailed breakdown of budget which gave us confidence. It went very well with good pace, ahead of schedule. Chris was readily available and very customer friendly to make sure we were comfortable and happy. Due to unforeseen circumstances, ended slightly later than original schedule towards the end like any other major renovation projects. Chris is very knowledgeable and has tremendous experience, knowhow and displayed excellent skill and workman ship. He is very trustworthy and hardworking. Most of the subcontractors hired by him, did excellent job except the plumbing contractor. Will be glad to offer any reference if needed. Thank you Chris.

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.
