What James and his crew did with the deck in our backyard was nothing short of a total transformation. We now have a beautiful deck that we use on a regular basis and absolutely love! We also had James and his crew knock out a wall to add a set of French doors for easier access to our deck and hot tub— it was a tough job, but they made it look easy. James was great to work with, an excellent communicator, and accommodated us on details and changes as they came up during the construction process. He wanted to make sure the deck was exactly as we envisioned, and consistently checked in throughout the project. The crew was friendly and punctual, even working in winter weather. We look forward to using James and Weathertite Roofing and Remodeling on several other projects that we have in mind for the near future. Thank you!!

I've hired Erik on numerous occasions. The initial time was for furniture construction in my apartment. He was not only skilled, but efficient, honest and trustworthy. I had never hired anyone to do any work like this before - I highly recommend him for anyone, but especially someone unsure or new to hiring outside help. Subsequently, I've contracted Erik for additional projects and also for larger remodeling and construction work through my company. I really cannot say enough good things. You won't be disappointed.

ER Construction is by far the best company we have ever had do work on our home. We have had some horrible experiences in the past with contractors who didn't show up, finish work promised, were sloppy and rude. ER Construction has finished all the work in our 1850 colonial and it has surpassed our expectations. The painting, floor refinishing, ceiling repair, and floor installation has been incredible and we are having them paint the exterior as well. We are very happy and satisfied and are recommending them to everyone we know!

I am 100% satisfied with the work performed by Boston Best Construction. The company owner, Eduardo Muniz, was present and communicative throughout the process. The sub-contractors ---framers, electricians, insulators, carpenters, plasterers---were all excellent and professional. The work went well and everything looks beautiful. Furthermore, Eduardo did everything the correct way, getting the required permits and inspections, which makes me feel assured that the work was done correctly and to code. I highly recommend this company and I plan on using them again for more work on my house.

Mr. DeOliveira was very professional. He gave me a quote and stuck to it. He showed up on time and did a great job installing s cement pad in the front of my house. He came back the next day and finished the work. Finally he had to come back a week later and repair the job after a truck backed into the house and damaged the concrete. Mr. DeOliveira came right out promptly and fixed the damaged pad at no charge. I would highly recommend DeOliveira Construction. Tom Steeves, Bellingham, MA

Very pleased with Bob and his crew. After two years of being jerked around by various contractors and friends who said they could "easily do this" we finally found RM Paolino Construction. Bob met with us on a Saturday and gave us a detailed estimate with some great cost-saving design changes for our kitchen and bathroom. We signed a contract that following Friday and by Monday morning our bathroom was gutted and on its way. What a relief it's been to deal with a real contractor after all time we wasted with other so called "professionals". Bob has kept us up to speed every step of the way and the bathroom looks great. Can't wait for kitchen to start. Highly recommend RM Construction to anyone looking for a professional, full service contractor who won't give you the run around!

I hired HD construction to repair my deck and install trim and lattice around the perimeter. Heraldo was extremely responsive and was able to schedule me in shortly after he reviewed and quoted the job. The overall result was great and I was very happy with the work. I would definitely recommend HD construction and would hire again for future projects.

Great job at a great price. I love the retaining wall and concrete walk Fernando and the team at Disere construction did at my home. I needed a retaining wall to keep water from running into my driveway, even in the dead of winter they came out and built more than just a functioning wall, they created art! We couldn't be happier!

We had our roof done with them. The owner of this business is a wonderful man. They responded to my initial call immediately and got an appointment within a few days for a free estimate. They came on time and the estimate was emailed to me within a few days. We decided to go with Rainstone construction because of their responsiveness. On the day of work they showed up on time, worked quickly and cleaned up after finishing. We found them reliable, professional with reasonable pricing. We enjoyed working with them and will surely recommend Rainstone to our friends.

We hired Justin to do a little framing for us and he has since done a multitude of other jobs around our house. He is very skilled and knowledgeable about all facets of construction. If there’s something you need done that’s outside of his expertise he will point you to reliable contractors you can trust. We will continue to utilize his services on this project and in future projects. Justin is very personable, trustworthy and fair on pricing. You won’t regret hiring him and, like us, you will likely be adding him to your contact list so you can reach him whenever you need help! He is sincerely a pure joy to work with. Thank you, Justin!

Go Green completed our home project on time and within our budget. We had a slider door and window replaced that required some reframing, removing and reinstalling siding, weather barrier and insulation. Frank and Ivan were true and experienced professionals- they arrived on time, were very polite, worked diligently, had a keen eye for detail and were very thorough. As with any project some unforeseen problems came up that could not have been anticipated. Julio worked with us to adjust the project’s hours; and Frank and Ivan offered a creative and aesthetically pleasing solution to a problem that would have sky-rocketed the overall cost. They wiped down everything before they left and completely cleaned up all debris. Finding a great contractor is always challenging for a homeowner. There are so many to choose from and most make claims that ultimately fall short or run well over-budget. Go Green was the most affordable and competitively priced company we consulted for our project; they exceeded ALL expectations and did a fantastic job! They will be getting repeat business from us.

Richard was the first contractor to respond to my inquiry and within three days of my job request, Richard quoted the work, bought supplies and completed the job. I was also very grateful that he fixed two other things that weren't even on the task list and he didn't charge extra. I plan on calling Richard when I'm ready with a few more things that need fixing around my house.

I hired this company for a painting job for an apartment that we needed to put in good condition ASAP. They completely exceeded my expectations. I originally had doubts but they reassured me of their total dedication to customer satisfaction and they kept their word. Strongmen construction is made up of polite and lovely hardworking guys. Will highly recommend them. They will match your price and completion date, spot on. Will hire them again for a basement project pretty soon!

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.
