Tony arrived on time. I brought him on to replace the bathtub handle and shower faucet. He was very knowledgeable. Although I previously purchased the parts there was things missing. He had parts available in truck and finished the job. He seems to take his job very seriously and is very professional. His hourly rates were as discussed and l am looking forward in hiring for other projects.

Kevin is knowledgeable in all aspects of home improvement projects having experience with renovating his own home completely. Kevin is thorough and committed to excellence going above and beyond to ensure the customer's needs are met.

Kevin has a keen attention to detail and works intelligently through all challenges encountered. We were very satisfied with the outcome and highly recommend Kevin for your future needs.

TAF Construction finished our patio roof and ceiling on time and budget. The weather turned quite cold for awhile but it did not deter the work from continuing. Excellent cleanup as well. We have an additional project and will use them again.

We needed some trim work done to cover a settlement crack along a tray ceiling that I had not been able to repair. I posted the request on Thumbtack and got a few replies with hourly rates. I contacted a couple of the contractors because I wanted to get more than an hourly cost to do the work. I described the scope of the work to each contractor and said that I wanted to get a more concrete estimate. Joe Valentino of Valentino Construction and Design estimated the job would take about 3 hours to do. I agreed on the hourly rate, and I told him I would get the material and prime and paint the wood to be ready for him. We agreed on a date. Due to circumstances beyond our control that both Joe and I had, the work got delayed by about a month. Finally, a date was set. Joe said he would get the wood and prime it. I agreed. Joe and his helper showed up at the appointed time and got to work. They were meticulous in their work. Furniture was covered or moved and tarps were laid over the carpeting. Four hours later the work was done. Beautifully, I may add. The trim work was done and Joe had even given it a couple of coats of paint to finish it. Both my wife and I loved it. They cleaned up and vacuumed the carpets. Furniture was put back in place. I asked Joe what the cost would be. He told me that we had agreed to the three hours of labor and the cost of materials so that would be it. Fantastic I thought; a man of his word. I would highly recommend Valentino Construction and Design to anyone needing carpentry work. They are friendly, do great work and are reasonable with their pricing. I give them 5 stars!

Damian was AMAZING. I was impressed with his knowledge and he was able to trace back every outlet and answered each question we had thoughtfully. He also installed our garbage disposal, hooked it up to an electrical socket, fixed all of our lighting issues, as well as our stove issues! We are highly satisfied with the work Damian has done this far and will be bringing him back for other projects - not just electrical work. Don't bother getting other quotes - Damian's work is impeccable and rates competitive. I can't say enough great things.

Randy, the technician, is a nice person to talk to. He has good skills that allow him to explain specific details about my plumbing problems (clog in the toilet with slow drain in the sink and bath) and give me great advice. Above all this I was impress by his honesty. Willow hill renovators & property management is a good and trusty compagnie. I'm completely satisfied.

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.

He has been willing to negotiate anything and everything. Whether talking on the phone, through text message or email, Omar's response time is beyond fast. All aspects of working with Omar and Advanced Property Management has been a owners dream.

Dear Rebolledo's Construction Company, Jeovonie,Martin and Martin Jr. I Am writing to convey my appreciation and thanks for the wonderful performance by Your Family company. Your Family owned business was everything I had hoped for when I selected a general contractor. The attention to detail, professionalism and quality of workmanship is evident throughout. You covered up everything upon doing all work, and you cleaned up every day also placing everything to its proper place. You were on time every day and let me know how close you were to my home, so I and my dogs could go upstairs while you newly renovated my downstairs. A special thanks for picking up all the materials to complete my project. Especially the flooring, which you had to drive at least an hour out of your way to get. My Bellawood Flooring you put in is absolutely gorgeous, And my ceramic tile in my kitchen is flawless, as well as the painting and all the drywall/wallboard you replaced in my house. The plumbing in the kitchen is impeccable, as well as the repair you did in the bathroom. A special thanks in getting to know my 4 Boxer Dogs that were full of high energy, and being so patient with them and me as they would run down the steps like a herd of elephants out the door in the yard to go to the bathroom. It was a pleasure to work with you and your family and I look forward to working with your company again on future projects. Thank you again and please know that I would be happy in referring your Company to everyone. As I look around at everything you have done, I see a dedicated family owned Business, that treats everything as if it were their own. Also it is great to have my contractors as my Facebook friends !!! KUDOS FOR A JOB WELL DONE👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

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.

General Labor Services did a good job on a big 400 S/F deck from planning,permits,construction to clean up. Always on time and will work until the job is done from sun up to sun down. Pricing is fair and project based they offer both options of providing materials or preparing a list for your own procurement. General Labor Services provides start to finish services for all projects small to complex issues with a pricing plan that brings value to each a every client. General Labor Services is a good company to work with as they make the process easy to understand. Then go the extra mile to insure you the client are happy with the end solution.

C Geyer Construction LLC is a very professional company to do business with. Their employees are courteous, punctual and very knowledgeable. There hasn't been a task that they completed for me that wasn't done to the highest standards. They have been a life saver for my business. They helped me bring my location up to OSHA compliancy's by performing many electrical and construction projects that needed to be done... And they did it all at a reasonable price, while working around my business's busy schedule. My experience was 100% satisfying and I am sure yours will be as well !!!

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.  

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 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.

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.
