Gamez Drywall and Repair installed a ceiling in my bathroom that had been previously removed and replaced all the walls. I wanted them to create a "box" in the ceiling to hold the base of my chandelier (to raise the chandelier higher). They understood exactly what I was trying to accomplish and did a great job. When they showed up I actually had a couple other surprise drywall projects since our initial meeting to discuss the estimate. They were flexible and accommodated the extra projects. They also completely textured the walls and ceiling in the powder room, fixed some recently created holes in my dining room ceiling and repopcorned to match the existing and installed a panel of drywall behind my upstairs toilet (the plumbing was recently rerouted and Sheetrock removed). When it came time for texture they offered me several techniques. I asked if they could replicate like the rest of the rooms to keep consistent and they did a great job of matching. The room looks exactly like the vision I had in my mind. They were very professional, showed up on time for the estimate meeting and also when they came back to do the work and their pricing was fair value for the work/services provided. I would hire/recommend again.

I am SO happy to find Gerhardo. I was very pleased with the mmquality of his work. He was very professional and polite. Him and his crew worked long hours with very little breaks until the job was finished. I will be hiring him again for interior repairs. Give him a try, you won’t be dissappointed.

Josh did a great job. Even though I had purchased a new faucet, I asked if he could possibly just fix the existing. Josh repaired the existing for me, saving me the cost of the new one. He also repaired a toilet upstairs, which I was afraid I would have to replace. I will definitely use Dallas Interiors and Remodeling in the future.

Frank was the first of several contracted me about this bathroom wall and floor tile project for my adult son's home in Garland. As a retired building contractor with 40+ years of experience, I am very pleased with the professionalism that Frank and his crew demonstrated as reported to me by my son Charlie. Well done Frank Bonilla.

I'm not sure where to begin. Roberto answered my request for a quote very fast. After talking to him on the phone he was able to meet at my house within a couple of hours. I had issues with sagging sheetrock in my garage that was at risk of falling on my garage door (which could have been very bad). Roberto gave me varying quotes based off of the degree in which I would want him to fix the issue. I decided to go ahead and have all the sheetrock replaced and/or re-nailed properly (previous owner did nothing but patch jobs). He said it would take 3 days and him and his team were able to get it done in 2 days. Not just that, in between the project he was able to install two bathroom lights/fans that I desperately needed installed. One of the bathrooms needed electrical re-wiring to be done and he had no problems getting that done with his electrician, all within the budget. Overall Roberto was a great person to hire. We hit it off as well and I instantly felt a level of trust when working with him. He gave me free estimates for other projects I want done around our new house such as kitchen remodeling, building an outdoors covered patio, opening walls to make more of an open floor plan, and getting wood paneling installed. He will be hearing from us as soon as I can start stashing away more money for these projects. And that's the other thing, his prices are very reasonable and I don't get the feeling he is taking advantage of us as customers. His honesty and attention to detail is refreshing.

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.

He went out of his way to be patient with me. Very professional and I would want him again if needed. Great attitude and willingness to please.

I am starting my own business in Arlington and the city is very particular about the site plans. I hired an architect whom I had to let go because he was incapable of getting the job done. I was very frustrated and stressed. I found Jason on Thumbtack and gave him a call, by the end of the phone call, my stress and frustration levels had decreased tremendously. He reassured me that he would take care of all of what the city was requesting. He is very knowledgeable of the dfw city codes. I felt safe and secure with Jason. He is a great architect and communicates well. He responds to phone calls and emails promptly and the price is reasonable. My building permits will be issued soon and I will begin renovations and this could not have been accomplished without Jason and his team. Thank you for all your hard work! I will definitely rehire for any future projects. And for those searching to hire an awesome architect who can get the job done, Jason is your guy!

Our building was just under 5000 sq ft along with the land layout. Quan was quick to get working on our plans and then went over all of the details with us. There were a few minor changes which she addressed quickly and got back to us right away. It was good working with her and I appreciate the quick turn around!

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.

Greyhammer worked on my roof. Farhan was prompt in assessing the damage and walking me through the steps to set up a claim with the insurance company and have all the hard labor on the roof done. Lead time from start to finish was approximately two weeks. Couldn’t ask for better work ethic and honesty.

John built a custom storage banquette and a built-in with a floating desk for my client. I am thrilled with his work, quality and professionalism. My client raved about the finished product and how respectable John was in her home, making sure each area was picked up and clean each evening. The level of detail in John's work doesn't go unnoticed. I cannot wait to work with him again!

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.

I recently decided to contract for a covering for my patio so the family can enjoy BBQ and relax outside year around. I searched the Internet for contractors and then requested bids from a handful. After talking with reps from several companies I settled on Cuttwood Construction. I enjoyed meeting Curtis Sharp and was most happy he shared my vision for style and quality. Cuttwood wasn’t the lowest or highest bidder, but I felt the best value and quality. I should note that other contractors wanted anywhere from 30 to 90 days to begin construction. Since it was already late May I wanted to have the project done before the 4th of July or it could wait until next year! Curtis was able to make it happen! The project was started and completed in six days! Since the project was in my backyard Curtis had one of his crew haul the lumber from the delivery point in my driveway to the building site immediately after delivery. David (with some assistance) actually performed the majority of the construction from framing to roofing and to the finish work. I was amazed at how fast they performed the demolition where the new cover joined my house, and then had the framing and roof sheathing all done the first day! I must note that David takes great pride in his workmanship—he is a real craftsman! The finished project included wiring and installation of a ceiling fan, and the addition looks just like it was original to construction of the house. The crew did an excellent job of cleaning up the site and removing debris upon completion. Curtis came to inspect the progress on a daily basis and sometimes multiple times as the project neared completion. He was responsive to my questions, suggestions, and concerns, and I am completely satisfied with the final product. I would hire Cuttwood for future projects with complete confidence.

Great experience. We started off having them build an 8' fence for us. Then we asked then to replace some of the hardwood floors and sand down the other hardwood. They did a great job on both projects.

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.

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.

Be sure to check out our smart hiring practices when it comes to finding a general contractor.

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.
