Dale did a good job. He came twice to the house. Once to replace all the lights and the next time to replace the kitchen sink. His pricing was fair. We hope to hire him in the future for other work.

Mr. Pichardo and his team did a fantastic job. From removing old siding, installing new siding, frame repair, sealing the perimeter of a garage that leaks, painting, sheetrock, gutters, complex pllumbing work (running new lines-pvc/copper, valves, etc). He is good at finding solutions when there is not always an easy fix. I've dealt with quite a few construction related contractors over the years and I would recommend him to anyone, without hesitation. He also plays guitar and sings very well. Five stars all day.

Used MGC for several small projects, including a metal storage building, an aquaponics greenhouse, and a mobil poultry coop. Admittedly not large projects but I am very pleased with the design and workmanship of each one. No project is too large or too small and I wouldn't hesitate to use MGC again.

My husband and I needed our entire bathroom and part of our master bedroom space redone and reconstructed. Gary was able to start right away, and we trusted him fully to work throughout the day in our home without us there. The project ended up being so much more work than we originally intended as our floor joints had to be completely replaced due to rot. Gary was patient with the project and his prices were very reasonable. He was very adept at framing the space (we moved several walls), and he was knowledgeable about every step of the construction project. Ultimately, the project called for him to utilize a very diverse skill set, including foundation work, carpentry, framing, structural re-enforcement, drywall work, electricity, plumbing, carpentry, patching wood floors, door and baseboard trim, tiling, cabinetry, and hanging a shower door. During the project, we even expanded our project past his comfort zone in a several areas (namely vaulting the ceiling and using a non-water based grout boost mixer for intricate tile work), but he was flexible with every step and achieved a result that looks stunning. Outside of the technical side, I want to commend Gary's communication, honesty, and professionalism. It was evident that he took a great deal of ownership in the project, and that showed in his responsiveness and willingness to communicate with us. There were mornings that he would get there and show us fixtures that he had been researching after he had gone home the night before. He was very responsive whenever we had a question, and he would send us updates throughout the day while we were at work. Obviously there are ups and downs with any contractor and major house project; I have never once heard of a perfect home renovation story. But Gary worked with us through any frustrating moments with grace and professionalism, which is often rare to find. Ultimately, we would hire Gary again for future projects, and we love our final result. Our bathroom is simply beautiful and we have gotten so many compliments already.

Opus took care of EVERYTHING!!!! RJ remodel Two building spaces, 1 turning a run down fitness center into a Great office space, and the other being a empty space just concrete floors and walls to fitness center. RJ came by or called with progress reports every step of the way and ensured that everything indeed was going smooth. Along the way they came in to some unforeseen complications and painlessly took care of them. They showed up when they said they would and completed the job in a timely manner. I will use Opus in the future and would recommend them highly to anyone else looking to have work done.

Dan is a swell guy. Interesting person to chat about and I enjoyed his thoughts on the projects I was doing to my home. I actually changed a plan of mine that I never had thought about (the placement of a door I'm building) and....well, that brought a lot of value to the work he did. Fun guy and I suggest picking his brain...he'll give honest feedback. Cheers

I had a fabulous experience working with Jason, and the team at DFW Autocad. I've never used Thumbtack before, so this was my first exposure. I simply created the details about the job, and joila, I had 4 interested parties. I emailed Jason, and he responded immediately. Set a time to meet with him, and met him the next day. He was very professional, asked a lot of questions, and then I showed him the space I needed drawings for. We agreed on the price, he took his measurements, and he did the work. Picked up the drawings today and it's exactly what I was looking for. Hopefully with the drawings I will be able to get a CO for my building and move on down the road. If not, I am totally confident, Jason can provide what the city needs. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a quality architect, at a reasonable price.

We have worked with many construction companies over the years, in multiple states; and none compare to 11Bravo. I would highly recommend 11Bravo Construction to any type of business. They are reliable, they will never take advantage and over charge, they get the job done...the first time, they are personable and they treat every task as if it were their own establishment. From repair jobs to building larger projects, they will handle it. They give great suggestions and will work with you...after working with them, there is no need to seek anyone else.

Amir picked up a messy, half finished design job which the previous architect had left un-done. He reviewed and finished this conversion of a store front to an apartment. It was challenging in that the commercial zoning regulations had to be addressed, state of Wisconsin variances obtained and more. This is a 1920s building and there were complex code and fire regulations that had to be resolved in a economical fashion. We also had issues finding builders which extended the job out for over a year - Amir stuck with us and is seeing the project through. We are very satisfied with his work.

Just put my house on the market when it was suddenly hit by hail. I did not know who to turn to until someone suggested GreyHammer. They came to my home and spent a lot of time not only educating me on a variety of roofing systems. But on colors, products and how some can build equity into the home I was trying to sell. greyhammer did a fabulous job and truly making me feel like a highly valued client as all of my needs and concerns were addressed immediately. This is my home Ana because of the great custom work of GreyHammer Construction it sold in only 3 hours. I can not thank you enough. Words can not explain the thanks I have.

Top quality job, completely professional crew, trustworthy and fairly priced. I would suggest getting bids from other contractors and then calling Raul. Not only will he give you a better price, but he will deliver. He and his crew completely transformed three different buildings for us on our horse ranch. They also worked through conditions that most people would not even consider working in.

Success was hired to build me a patio cover. They did a good job, even extending the patio to make it a little larger. I also contracted them to clean my gutters, which they cleaned to my satisfaction. I am pleased with both jobs.

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.  

How do architects work?

Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

How do architects charge for their services?

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.

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.

What do general contractors charge?

If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

  • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
  • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
  • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
  • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.
