My goodness! What a great job done for me by JKM Contractors. I could not ask for a more professional team that was fair and reasonable in cost/pricing, on time, prompt, clean, timely, thorough and good. The work as a painter was just the beginning as needed power washing of my home, some general 'honey do' items I could not manage on my own. I would strongly recommend them. You will not go wrong.

I hired Goggin Floor Installation and More to do several projects at my house to include installing a new kitchen floor, putting up light fixtures, remodeling 2 bathrooms, crown molding in the dining room, building a new pool deck, and outdoor electrical work. I could not be happier with the results of all of my projects!! Dave Goggin is the best handyman service I ever experienced, he is extremely reasonable, honest, trustworthy, and truly cares about each project he takes on, but more importantly, he cares about the customer. When I initially put out my request on Thumbtack for service, he contacted me right away, came out to my house the next day to give me an estimate, and had the estimate prepared that same night. I had other contractors come out as well to give estimates and it is now over a month later, all of my projects have just about been completed by Dave Goggins, and I am still waiting on estimates from the other contractors! Dave is also a great communicator. He walked me through every step of each project and always maintained communication. He has been in the business a long time so was able to walk in to every room or project and visualize exactly what I wanted then give me recommendations and feedback on what would work best given his experience. He also had the experience to give accurate on the spot estimates. I went with every recommendation that Dave had and I am very pleased with how everything turned out, way better than what I had could have come up with! I have Dave on speed dial now and I plan to use his services for every project I have around the house. I give him 5 stars!!

I was impressed with Joe from JW Construction and Remodeling immediately because of his prompt response. He went above and beyond what we asked him to do in order to secure our deck, and his work was great. I will be hiring him again and referring him to friends.

Did an excellent job on project. His estimate was exactly what he charged me. Slight delay of a couple weeks to start job, but was told his previous job ran longer than anticipated, not a big deal. Left some materials from job on my driveway (large pieces of metal) that he said he would come back and pickup a few days later. He never came back and I had to pay someone else to haul away. Overall excellent job and would recommend to others.

Jeff Stottlemeyer of Jeffhomepro was recommended to me by a home stager/designer, and I am pleased to highly recommend Jeff for your home improvement needs. Jeff was instrumental in preparing my home for sale in 2015. Major projects, included painting the interior of my 3200+ square foot house and refurbishing my large deck. He also did landscaping work in my Asian-themed garden. His work was consistently of the highest quality and reflected close attention to detail. I could always rely on Jeff to show up when he said he would, ready to get to work. Projects were completed in a timely manner. His rates were reasonable and very competitive. My house presented beautifully to potential buyers, and I credit that to Jeff's work. I would definitely use his services again, and have recommended him to friends and family members.

Nate was very personable and came out to my home promptly to give me an estimate on a new roof. I was impressed on his knowledge on roofing and felt he was someone we could trust to do the job. Although due to my own circumstances I was unable to work with him, he would be the first person id call or recommend to someone who needs a new roof or repairs. He is someone I would trust for the job.

NJR not only was the most reasonably priced of the contractors who bid on my home improvement project, but they gave me more feedback and recommendations that proved beneficial. They also began the work on time, were extremely helpful and personable, and were always available via text message. And the improvements came out looking great. I would absolutely recommend them for any job.

The contractors arrived on time everyday. They kept me informed of the plan and progress and when more extensive damage was discovered, they explained what would need to be done and estimated costs quickly. I was actually on site when the extensive damage was discovered, but I also reduced a call from Mark with pictures to show what needed to be addressed. He was also ready with an estimate of the additional work. Even texting June late in the evening after the workers left received and immediate reply. I have full confidence that my project was done well and correctly. I was very impressed with the attention to detail and willingness to explain each step of the process. When they left, they cleaned up after themselves completely and it looked like no one had ever been there (except for the beautiful siding and windows). We will definitely be hiring William Penn Renovation again for future projects.

    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.
