Scotty and his assistant are great guys! They were expedient in completion of repairs and took the time to explain what they found to be the cause of my plumbing woes. I will call them for any future plumbing and remodeling projects.

Good quality, timely work with a very competitive price. I had a large fencing and landscaping project and they worked with me figure out what I wanted and then knocked it out quickly and efficiently. Their pricing was better than any other quotes I got and they were honest and straightforward to deal with. Will definitely be using them in the future.

I had Manny out to give me an estimate to repair some very poor workmanship on my exterior doors. From the beginning, Manny was professional, honest and delivered my estimate in a timely manner. He answered all of my questions and when the parts came in he was quick to schedule my service. He fixed the doors and made them look great. I only wish I had called Manny first as he does quality work.

Diamond in the rough as far as contractors go! If you need it done, this couple is the one to do it! They're the only company that gave me an estimate and constantly checked up with me and in the end, they stuck to the price estimated even though I asked for a few more things in addition to what was originally quoted. I know the job was more of a pain than they took into account before checking out what needed to be done but the price never changed. This is a true, genuine, honest, (pretty awesome if I must say myself) couple that work together to make their customers happy! I inquired about a few doors and ended up with 4 beautiful doors with new knobs, a hung mirror and a fixed chair and I couldn't be happier! We also found out we know some of the same people!! So glad we found them! Thanks Maury and Melissa!!

This job was supposed to be to replace a couple rotted deck boards, but once Dillon got here we started talking about a project that I've been considering forever. A patio cover for my Modern house. It was done quick and for just a bit under his estimate. It's gorgeous and the experience was so great. He was responsive to texts, showed when he said he'd be here, totally understood what i was picturing in my head and built it. Love it. Having them back for other projects again. If you have a project, call Dillon -these are your folks!!

Jim came out to the house to work up an estimate at no charge. He is professional to the core - very responsive, communicates at every point of the project, including confirming dates and times. He brings everything needed for the job and is very careful to protect surfaces around the work area. Above all, he is honest, fair, hardworking and knows his stuff. Would not hesitate to hire him again!

Felipe and Jacob were very professional, always on time, and completed the project in a timely manner. They were tasked with fixing our 1 yr old frameless leaky shower and true to his word, it no longer leaks! His team had to tear the entire shower down to the wood frame and rebuild from scratch. I'd highly recommend Felipe and his team to anyone looking for a small to large bathroom renovation. The estimate received was fairly priced compared to the others we received. Thanks, Felipe! You have happy customers here!!

Chris did a great job removing the popcorn in on of our bedrooms. We didn't want to pay what the larger painting contractors wanted to charge and we didn't want to do it ourself so Chris was the perfect choice. He showed up when planned and finished in the expected time. Finished product looks great.

I would give Galactic Construction six stars if I could. I took a number of bids for an interior paint job. Marco was the most helpful out of all of the people who came by. He listened to our needs, understood our budget limits and what we *didn't* need, and offered a very fair price. After Marco and his team efficiently completed the job, my wife and I were very glad to see that Galactic Construction completed what we asked to a high standard. But what really impressed us was that Marco decided to paint parts of the walls and trim that we didn't think we could afford. He didn't charge us extra. He did it because he thought it would look better, and he wanted to do a great job. So we have here a company with integrity, professionalism, affordability, and promptness. You couldn't ask for more.

Ken Mackey, MD Contracting, did a fabulous job on a large project to do multiple repairs and renovations in preparation for selling my house. He had been recommended by my next door neighbor. I chose to work with Ken after seeing his beautiful work in her home (especially her master bathroom) and after getting a very reasonable quote from him! My project included a total tear-out and rebuild of a Jack&Jill kids' bathroom, a beautiful walk-in shower expansion in the master bathroom, and a refresh of all the upstairs surfaces plus a downstairs laundry room. Ken listened to what I needed, helped me make a plan within budget, and followed through on every detail until I was satisfied. He is dedicated to doing things right. Thank you, Ken, for making all the details of my house shine!

Osman and team are very professional and timely. I was amazed at the speed in which they painted half of our home and 10', 12' and 20' walls but maintained clean lines and quality. All in two days which would have taken my spouse and I several weekends. We will hire Realta Construction again for the remainder of our home.

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.
