Jason and his team worked with me finding an appointment time that would be convenient for both of us. They arrived on time and completed the job within the estimated time. Jason then gave me suggestions for upgrading to 6" seamless gutter which would accommodate the water run off from my roof. An email quote arrived next day. Jason and his team were professional and pleasant to work with. I will be having my gutters replaced and upgraded by him. More to come after the job is finished.

Tony, Michael, Benji, Shane and the rest did a GREAT job. We don't even live in the state so have to take a flyer on Tony's team. We left them a key and let them do their work and communicated on the phone, text and email (from Colorado). They got everything done by the promised date including wood work, bathroom remodel, painting, construction and more!!! Thank you SO much for all your hard work guys!

Al was great to work with. He had a more complicated deck refurbishing project with us. We had half of the deck that was new, and half that was 20 years old and stained with black paint. Al worked diligently to get the old black paint off by power-washing and sanding severe parts. He patched holes and and added screws where necessary. The deck turned out beautifully and looks brand new. It took longer than expected but ONLY because a few days after Al started our job it rained for nearly 2 weeks straight and we couldn't catch a break! Al was very easy to work with. He has a an exceptional work ethic and keen eye when it comes to "attention to detail". He is easy to get along with and never seem irritated or exasperated when asked to do something a little differently than what we wanted. He was always happy to do it and went above and beyond to do so. I will be employing Al again for a few other projects we have in our home in the future. No hesitation whatsoever. Thanks, Al! ~Stephanie & Tony Franklin, TN

We appreciated the honesty of Mr. Guyton. He came over within 24 hours of contacting him to look at our roof and informed us that the issue we had was caused by a leak. Obviously not something we wanted to hear, but he was also quick to tell us that it was a relatively easy fix and what it wasn't going to cost! Anytime you have to get a roofing estimate, you expect it to be expensive. Yes, the job cost more than we would have like, since we were hoping it was just the fascia coming off and it needing to be nailed back in, instead of the issue being caused by a leak. But we feel like the cost is extremely reasonable. We are very pleased with the work done and have discussed using him whenever it is time for a new roof.

Met with Brian Duke for an estimate. He was extremely knowledgeable, honest, and someone I will work with in the future. Based from his honesty I didn't need work at this time. An honest Contractor means allot! I asked him about future prevention though and what he presented was extremely helpful in something I will do in the future. He was completely reasonable too! I will definitely be recommending him to others as well!

Spencer was a true God-send as we were in a bind from a shower remodel gone bad. Beyond completely re-working our master bath, Spencer also installed exterior doors, appliances, tiled a second bathroom and a host of other things. I'm looking forward to the next time we get to work together. He's a great find!

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.
