I recently used American Builders for a roofing project. The team came by early and did a great job. Not only was the job great but Artis came by to ensure that the job was being done correctly. He was very pleasant and explained the details of what was being done. In this day and time, the level of customer service your provided has lowered. This was a very pleasant experience.

We recently hired Mr. Perkins and his crew to do a major bathroom remodel. Removing a sunken bath tub and creating a large walk in shower could have been a nightmare but the entire process was easier than we ever thought possible. Friendly, polite, detail oriented, easy to work with PLUS fair pricing. We would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Perkins and his company for any home repair project.

The good: David Munns came to our home to review a large job. He quoted a very reasonable price. He showed up daily around 8-9 and worked till about 3-4 pm. David assured us he could get the job done right. We made sure he knew that we would supply anything he needed to get it done. He was also able to purchase paint at a great price. The Bad: David Munns suggested that we use flat paint instead of shiny because if we didnt he said that we would see every flaw in the paint. But we wanted eggshell because the paint was for kitchen and dining area and you can't wipe down flat paint if food spatter gets on it. We went with his recommendation at first before we understood this about dining areas. The flat paint did not look good though and the colors didn't look the same as the samples when applied to the walls. We purchased more paint for the second coat in eggshell. However after he painted the first coat we noticed that he had got paint all over the cabinets and our white trim, He also had assured us that he could paint over the wallpaper, had done it plenty of times before and it would look alright. He said that he and would peel back, sand and mudd the edges before painting them but he neglected to do so and it was looking pretty bad. All around our trim and the edges of the walls look terrible with the flat flaw covering paint. Also noted but not even mentioned to him cause we were trying to be easy going, was nail holes not filled in or sanded down just painted over leaving rough places and holes. Things we had agreed to be done before the job started. The terrible: I would have worked with all this but when we pointed this out and asked him about these things, he assured us he would fix it, we accepted that from him but then instead, he took offense to our having questioned his work and left without telling us that he was going. We were astonished that he would do that and it seemed very unreasonable to get so upset. After all we were paying him a lot of money for the job and just wanted to make sure it was done appropriately. He left more work to be done than when he started. David seemed personable but he didn't explain things well and took it personal when we asked him questions even though we assured him we just wanted to be on the same page and make sure the final result came out right. He seemed to want to cut corners instead of doing it right and as agreed. He blamed the builders any time we pointed out anow area saying that they had done a poor job when building our home. After Mr. Munns suprised us by leaving suddenly I tried to call and messaged him asking him to come back and tried to work things out but he didn't respond. We are very dissapointed and feel that Mr. Munns was unprofessional in his dealings with us just quitting like that. We thought we were fair with him and we also spoke calmly and nicely to him when asking him questions and pointing out what we wanted fixed. We paid a deposit and now have to dispute those charges minus paint costs and have other painters come in to finish the job and fix our cabinets. I would not recommend Liberty Painting to anyone. I didn't want to have to leave a bad review I actually hate this and wish Mr. Munns would have just stuck it out and tried to talk to us. We like to think we are on the same team and that's how it could have been. I hope he was just having a bad day but unfortunately that left us in a poor position that is gonna cost us to fix it.

Marcus was very professional, had good ideas & suggestions as we were walking him through the project and was available quickly. We are not done with the project yet, but so far are pleased with his work. When something did not turn out quite right, he quickly went back to fix it. (painting & wall repair to date)

Kenny did a good job on my door. however, I would caution a consumer that he is a bit pricey. In hindsight , I should've gotten several estimates from other installers.

Carlos Gomez was terrific. He fixed a cabinet another person said couldn't be fixed. The alternate solution would have been three times the actual cost. Carlos Gomez also is a good guy and pleasant. We will use you again .

Mr Belleau did an exceedingly professional job, which included emailing a professional estimate, invoice , and warranty. Each job was done quickly and beautifully. Jobs included designing and building laundry room shelves, and putting shelves in a closet. He also repaired drywall and a popcorn ceiling, as well as fixing bathroom fixtures and unclogging a tub that had been unused for years. Mr. Belleau was friendly, quick, and respectful of our home. We would call for his services again!

    I have used Mr. Vollmer and his comany on several occasions now for various projects around my home, and I have been very pleased with all of them! From tearing out an old cracked patio and creating a new larger backyard patio, to installing new shower doors, plumbing fixtures, electrical work and lighting, installing new cabinets for my laundry room, painting, hanging outdoor lighting on patio, all areas of yard and flower bed work, rebuilding a fence, building a new fence gate, and even trimming trees. He is the type of person who pays very close attention to detail, and looks for every opportunity to cut costs without sacrificing quality. I highly recommend Mr. Vollmer for any of your home improvement needs!

    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.  

    Why should you hire a contractor?

    Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the 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.
