Joel isn't even done with my project yet, but I had to come here and say how amazing he is! Not only was his bid the most reasonable I recieved, he tackled a difficult existing texture problem with ideas that only a seasoned vet would have come up with. His team is extremely professional and man, do they know what they are doing! I am remodeling an older house, and I'm actually thrilled to have more work for him to do after our initial project. Hire this guy!!!

Fina was good to work with. She started out the bid process by meeting us at the job site -- in the rain! Her bid was comprehensive, easy to understand, and she stuck with it. She asked precise questions to make sure she understood the requirements. Fina provided sound advice on our job, which we followed to the benefit of the project. Will probably use her services again for additional paint jobs.

Dulce was the best project manager that we have every hired. She was punctual, organized, and an excellent communicator. Her level of integrity was refreshing. We will definitely be hiring her again for future projects. Our patio project was finished on time and within our budget. Our patio project surpassed our expectations. We are impressed with the quality of materials and craftsmanship that each part of our project required. For our project, Dulce managed the city permit/inspection, framers, roofers, painters, masons, and electricians. Dulce had some serious weather complications that she was able to deal with in a positive way. We highly recommend Dulce as a project manager. She performs with a level of excellence that we have not experienced before.

Within an hour of posting, Rene reached out and set up a same day walk through. 30 minute after the walkthrough I had a rough estimate. I had a contract in hand the next morning and him and his team showed up 2 hours later. They are the most efficient, polite and professional renovation/construction company I have dealt with. We are about half way through the project and so far it has been going smooth.

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!!

We are very pleased with the look of our bathroom. Felipe was easy to work with and did his best to make sure we got the design we wanted. We received quotes from several contractor between $8,500 to $43,000. Felipe quote was not the lowest but in the range we thought was reasonable for our size bathroom. Our project had several set backs which were no ones fault: The tub filler we selected had a design flaw, which required some redesign. The sink drains didn't work the way we hoped and had to order replacements. The tub showed up with a crack and we had to order a replacement. Felipe worked with us through each issue and did his best to guide us to a solution. One of the great things about working with Filipe was the fact he knows some very good subcontractors. The company he recommended to do the show glass, did a great job at half the cost other companies quoted for the same work. Plus we got a lifetime warranty on the glass and workmanship. With every project there's always the 90/10 rule. 90% of the work is straight forward and fairly easy to complete. The rest of the work is more tedious and requires time. There were a couple of areas I thought the work could have been better: The pony wall tile was not cut straight and left ragged grout edges (picture). The retexturing could have been better if not rushed (picture). The caulking around the tub, particularly behind the tub was very poorly done. For the price, I really don't have anything to complain about. This was our first project hiring a contractor to do a project. We learned some important lessons. 1) Create a check list of work items. This will help make sure there are no disagreements on what is and isn't part of the contract. 2) Inspect the work regularly. It's only your fault if the works not done correctly. 3) Don't pay until the work is done to your satisfaction. 4) Get everything in writing including the warranty. I can't say enough how happy we are with the new bathroom. I have other property in Austin and I will use Felipe for future projects.

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.

I hired Chris For a small project in my apartment a month ago. I gave him a 600 dollar budget to revamp my studio apartment. He did a wonderful job and exceeded every one of my expectations. He provided the exact look I wanted and I only had to give him minimal directions and no supervision. He was efficient and productive, completing the job before the set deadline. I will be hiring him for any of my future projects.

It is a different approach, but great Project Manager that walk me thru the process and got a 3D of the what I want before actually building it. Now I am almost done with our home renovation, had a few changes along the way but Bamboo did not charge any Change Order just actual labor hours. Which is great because had quite a few and they where easy to talk to. Another thing they strive themselves with there pay as you go policy, which is really great, no lock in.

Thanks to Positive Construction, my residential remodeling project was completed with flying colors!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
