The service was top notch work. Before searching for the quote, I had bad experience with other roofing contractor several years ago. Hence, I had a hard time, trusting the bids I was asking for. Until I found Frank Maxwell and Robin through this website, Frank came out next day to give the quote for new bigger deck and siding..... A real big project in my book. The quote was average...not the cheapest. AND IT IS WORTH! Frank, Robin, and Jeff did the marvelous work. They built real throughly and carefully. A beautiful siding..... Can't express how great deck looks. What's more, they made sure that my deck is well regulated by the city requirement. Robin always kept me up to the date with the work underway. If you are looking for the quotes, stop here... Don't go further. Give them a call. You won't regret!

Andrew installed a 10x10 sectional insulated door on an atypical application in my garage. He was very professional, courtious, efficient and affordable...unlike the bigger names! He even got me a better price from supplier on a leftover door from a cancelled order. On time for both appointment and install and cannot be more satisfied with the work. Will use again and highly recommend. I have used a few contractors building my house and he is a refreshing change!

I had some odd projects....a very long cornice to hide 4 4' fluorescent light fixtures and a custom shelf. I found a shelf that was perfect for my bathroom, but the artisan would only make it in pine. Tom created it in walnut so it would match other walnut accents in the master bath. He did a beautiful job and hung it as well. The cornice was, to put it mildly, a nightmare. I didn't have plans in mind. Tom made some excellent recommendations as his design mimicked the top of our china cabinet. Once the cornice was in place, I realized that the open bottom allowed the light fixtures to dominate the woodwork. So Tom came up with a plan to install some metal sheeting I'd found. It was a tedious job, but Tom is a perfectionist. I appreciated Tom's attention to detail. I already have other projects in mind for him.

I found working with Charles to be a very pleasant experience. He definitely puts the customer first. He showed up on time every time. He was organized, didn’t rush and cared about my house as though it were his own, being careful to protect the hardwood floors in the work area. When he was finished he cleaned up after himself and left no trace that he had been here other than the excellent work he left behind. Charles framed out and trimmed a closet opening to accept two French-style doors. He is the fourth person to install trim in my house in the last 4 years and only his miter joints are flawless! I won’t be using any wood filler or caulking to fill in gaps on his trim work! I found his estimate to be reasonable and just about what I was expecting to pay. He had ideas of his own, but I never felt as though he didn’t respect mine. He’s got an Old School work ethic. He was focused on his work and didn’t spend all day on his phone. So, if you’re scared away by those 1-star reviews complaining of communication problems, I say don’t be. Those people didn’t hire him and they’re worse off because of it. Give him a try. You’ll be glad you did.

From our experience, we've gone through a lot of contractors that have been flaky and dishonest. John at Symbio does good work, but more importantly we've come to trust him, which we have found is rare. We would certainly recommend him.

I would like to congratulate Duane and his colleagues on a truly exceptional job. This was a relatively small job, removing a failing wall and replacing a concrete slap (about 7'x8'ft). Duane visited our house very promptly, and noticed that beyond the problems with the wall/slab that three storm drains were blocked which my have contributed to the underlying problem. He provided a very! detailed and reasonable quote, his team performed the work over a rational time period (given weather constraints) and the result was exceptionally well done. I would like to highlight a few facets of the work which I truly enjoyed: 1: the attention to detail, while the drains were flowing, it wasn't quite fast as expected, he and his team actually worked till they found a chunk of old copper drain pipe deep in the storm drain. 2: the attention to quality, the concrete work was beautifully finished, the drains were resealed after clearing 3: the project was completed in a timely fashion. While not the only project on his books, it was completed well and in a reasonable time frame.. No long waits. Overall I was very happy with Goubeaud and Company's work and I will absolutely hire them again in the future.

I hired MCS to install steel metal commercial doors. They immediately called us offering to do job. Came out in less than three days to quote job and take measurements. They price shopped and ordered the doors and when they arrived immediately came out to install. The doors are for an animal shelter. They donated $ and food to the shelter. The entire process was professional and pleasant. I highly recommend this contractor!!!!

Dan responded to our request right away and provided a quote upon the first visit. We had three different contractors assessing the water penetration problem. One quoted three times higher than Dan's quote. The other one provided a wide range of guess for the final cost. Dan's team was professional and courteous. I am very happy with their work and will consider them for other kind of works in future too if I need them.

Bill and his guys are awesome! They were able to complete challenging interior and exterior work on a seventy-five year old house in Perry Hilltop. It was done in a few days and at a very fair price. Bill is a man of his word and his crew did a few extra things that needed done even thought they were not on the punch list! Buchanan are my "go to" contractors. Brian, Home/Rental Property Owner

We've used Scott from Premier Home Improvement for several remodeling jobs in our home. He did a great job with our kitchen makeover including a new laminate floor, ceramic tile backsplash, window framing and painting. He also put in new basement entry doors and new windows for us. We couldn't be more pleased. Scott is very meticulous and his prices are reasonable. We're happy to know a contractor we can trust and who does quality work.

I used Hyperion Homes to install tile in my bathroom on the floor and in the shower in August 2015. They completed the job in the time frame proposed and met all of my expectations. They kept their work area clean and were professional throughout the job. Overall I am very pleased with both the quality of work and the manner in which it was performed.

    Adam did countless projects for me: crown moulding throughout house; chair rail throughout house; framed windows; quarter round on baseboard throughout house; deck steps; garbage enclosure; tile work; drywall work; etc. At my mom's house, he built new bay window panels; stair railings, hung doors, etc. Every single project he did was outstanding. I have very high standards and Adam exceeded them every time. Moreover, he left the place extremely clean and is very professional and nice.

      Andrew does wonderful work at excellent prices! I highly recommend him for big and small jobs. If it's broken, he can fix it. If you want to remodel, he knows how to do it. Polite, pleasant and professional. Neat and trustworthy - completes things the right way, not just the easy way. Fast and efficient. Always returns calls and provides solutions or suggestions. Not a smoker. I am a past and recent customer. He has remodeled 2 bathrooms (plumbing, floors, fixtures, paint), hung doors, replaced woodwork, laid tile, updated light fixtures, sealed skylights, checked roofing, and done miscellaneous repairs at my house. I will definitely hire him again.

      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.
