I had a leak at the base of my toilet. He responded very quickly. He came by the next day and took a look to confirm it. He was available the next day to repair it. Cost was reasonable & work was done in a timely manner! He also provided me with the receipt for the parts that were needed!

Kyle did a thorough inspection in attic and on roof to locate possible cause of small leak. I feel repairs cost were reasonable, especially since it includes a leak warranty. Thank you, Kyle.

Cody was assertive in his response to our needs. He responded within minutes of my search, and again within hours. He showed up on time, provided an estimate of the work and finished the job within 24 hours of our initial correspondence! I will definitely refer Braughton & Sons to anyone needing work on their property. Great job! Mr. & Mrs. Billy C. Tate, Sr. Ovilla, Tx

Mr. Lowrey had instantly replied to all quarries and arrived within an hour even in the long weekend. He’s very professional and knowledgeable about his work. He wasn’t rushing to complete his job and gave sufficient time to complete it. We had worked on our garbage disposal prior of calling him which caused water leak and he even fixed it without charging anything additional. The most of all, he was very cost effective. We will definitely hire him and recommend him for any future jobs.

He was able to meet my immediate schedule request and perform various tasks such as basic plumbing and woodwork that reduced additional resources. Although a small repair, he was thorough in addressing my problem concerns and communicated his two phase approach and two day schedule but did not change his cost estimate.

I engaged Jeff to completely re-do my front landscape. It looks absolutely amazing! My home is new construction and had builder grade landscaping. Jeff has a great design "eye" and I believe has added value to my house. His team was very professional and so easy to work with. They cleaned the area each night before they left. The project was completed on time and within budget. I will be engaging Jeff again for the backyard.

We had a complete bathroom remodel. They listened to everything we wanted and asked questions along the way to make sure they were giving us what we wanted. Mitch did a great job with everything from the plumbing to the electric to the tiling, and he build a recessed cabinet that was just what I envisioned. It is tough to have people in your home for two weeks, but Trey and Mitch were always friendly and pleasant. I liked the idea of being given the set labor cost fee and then paying for the materials separately. It gave me more control over the costs. Trey's material cost estimate came very close to my actual final cost. Would not hesitate to hire them again.

Zach helped me with a complete remodel of my bathroom from floor to ceiling. He has an artistic flair and suggested ideas for my consideration along the way. He installed the tile floor and retextured the walls as well as helping with the installation of the vanity. He was also great about identifying areas of cost savings. He is prompt and professional and my bathroom turned out better than I expected. I would recommend Zach for any home remodeling projects.

Alex seems very knowledgeable and talented. The overhead storage rack in the garage was installed within a few hours with efficiency and quality work. His experience and feedback was critical to determine the most appropriate location for the racks, which he provided with confidence. I will definitely be requesting his services for my future projects at home and work, as he is very experienced in his craft, reasonable in cost and mostly, reliable as a business in service industry.

We had a major bathroom repair/update done in our house that has only one bathroom. E & H hit all major marks you need for a job well done. Joell took the time and gave us a very detailed fair estimate of costs and work needed. Alonso as project manager and their crews were prompt and kept us updated daily as work was completed on each phase. He answered any questions we had and assisted us throughout the process. Their quality of work for us is excellent. The job was completed in time expected. We had a small issue with new toilet and they were out promptly to make sure it was taken care of. We couldn't be happier with our NEW bathroom. I would recommend them. In fact, we have asked them to complete a second job for us soon.

I was looking for someone to paint the waiting area, hallways and offices at my business. I called three different companies with high ratings here on Thumbtack for estimates. The first one never showed up. The second was nice and stated I also needed drywall repair. They quoted me one estimate with drywall repair and without. Also, they did not include the price of paint, that would be extra. Jose Cardona’s estimate cut the second in half, and included painting, drywall repair, and all the supplies to complete the job! He didn’t give me two quotes, he automatically assumed the cost of paint and the drywall repair in his original estimate. The second company said the job would take 5 days. Jose had it done in less than 3 days! It was done quickly, professionally, and with very high quality! While Jose was doing the repairs, he suggested that I should put granite countertops in my reception area and bathrooms. I agreed, and got one other estimate to compare to his. No surprise, Jose had a better price!! I couldn’t be happier with my new office and the work done by Jose! I definitely recommend Jose and will be using him soon on my home!

I have known Dirk Elliot for more than 10 years and have enlisted his assistance on several projects. The work performed in every case was awsome. The cost reasonable. I mostly appreciated his honesty, that is so hard to find. The most recent project was replacing my back patio cover I love it. He will be my first call in the future on any work needed.

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.
