I was contact by Marcial from Medina Construction & Roofing and two other contractors within 10 minutes after I posted on Thumbtack that I needed a Reroof on my house, the next day he did an inspection on my roof and provided me with a detail estimate for the job and included reference from BBB and Thumbtack, plus a certificate of liability insurance. After reading some reviews and getting two other estimates, I decided to go with Medina Const. for the best price. The job was schedule whitin one week and the work was done in a full day and a half on the entire roof. Marcial is the "man" he is hands on with his crew, he actually is part of the crew, clean job from start to finish, no problem adding extra work for the terrace, and upgrading to 30 year shingle. I would definitely recommend Medina Const. for any roofing project.

I called Gary since he was reasonably priced per hour and I just needed a quick professionals opinion since I thought I knew what was wrong. Gary confirmed my suspicions of a slab leak. Gave me a fair estimate and told me he could even do the work on a weekend at the same price. (Not common for most plumbers or contractors) He showed up promptly and punctually both days. Photo documented everything incase there was a dispute from my insurance company and kept me in the loop on all repairs and even took care of some minor plumbing issues he found while doing the repair at no extra cost. Once I had a hole in my kitchen and the pipe repaired I conveyed my dismay of having to find a tile guy next to repair the floor. Gary told me he does floors also. He added that into a new estimate and guess what it was even better priced than I could have hoped. His work by the way is nothing short of stellar. I've had tile done several times and he does it the right way. No short cuts and not rushed. He even met his deadline of having to be done over the weekend. I can honestly say I can't be any happier with the service I received from Gary. He was so easy to work with and did everything as I hoped. I will definitely be using him again for any home repairs I need.

Lance responded promptly and got us on the right path. We had adjusters and subcontractors to deal with. He managed everything and brought us in at the right times. I have remodeled homes as general contractor and general handyman but it sure was nice for me and my wife to get out of the way and Lance take care of us in a humble and respectful manner. He is one of God's soldiers.

What do you do when you’ve got guests arriving tomorrow and there’s water damaged drywall hanging from your kitchen ceiling? We went to Thumbtack and found Ben Huso. Ben was sensitive to our tight timeline, even coming himself to do the job despite his usual subcontractor being unavailable. Ben was dedicated to getting the job done right, even as issues presented themselves along the way. In the end, the hole got patched in time and on budget.

John is the only contractor I would call for any job I do in the future. He helped me save money on my materials and has proven to be quite the wildcard! My projects have always finished in reasonable time, the transformation was smooth, the quality was perfect and the job site was always tidy! He did the various types flooring throughout my whole house, created custom built-ins and custom cabinets. I referred him to my mother and he did various types of floors in her home, transformed bathrooms and added on stairs and door to her deck. He has reliable subcontractors who have provided quality work, too. He was always on time. I cannot say enough, really. He also likes to work with designers which I LIKE a lot, sometimes I send him ideas and he gives me advice and feedback. Truly an all around great guy and top-notch contractor.

Brian has done a number of jobs for me - large and small, for several years. He is my go-to for any repair or remodel. I know that whatever project Brian in working on, I will be happy when he is done. And he lets me know if something I want will not be what I want in the end. I trust his judgment completely. I highly recommend Brian and any of his subcontractors. He is completely trustworthy and cleans up when the job is done.

Ash Roofing did a tremendous job on my roof. Adam worked with my insurance company -- I didn't have to negotiate a thing, saved me money on the overall installation and even installed hail-resistant shingles for the price of non-hail-resistant. The crew completed the job on time and did a great job of cleaning up afterward. The subcontractors who installed new gutters had the same quality standards. I highly recommend Ash Roofing.

Steve and Dirk always kept me informed with daily updates as to the progress of my renovation. They stayed close to the budget set. Each subcontractor who did work was professional and arrived at the times promised. The few times there was a problem, I only had to make 1 call and it was resolved. This company is amazing! I highly recommend them. L Nowlin

The first thing I really liked is when Cj came to the house and gave me this real warm feeling. We came up with some ideas and I actually had three people come out to the house and I would say that while he wasn't the cheapest he had the best quality, I was invited to his house to look at several design options and saw what he was able to do. The other thing I liked is he gave me a start date and a rough end date and it was dead on. He took pride in that. I had a vision about some countertops and he was able to make suggestions that were better than I had imagined. I liked that the crews and the job site was kept very neat and clean but he was able to keep construction work out of the main house. Also you can never tell that the addition was not original to the main house from both inside and outside. But he definitely listened to my input and made suggestions to make it better than I imagined. Pricing was very fair. I have received a lot of compliments on the room it's the conversation piece of the house. When I tell them it's an addition people ask me who did it and I give them CJs information. And finally I like that there was follow up after construction to make sure everything was satisfactory.

Drew Sharp was the person supervising the repair of two rooms that were damaged by a water leak a few months ago. He completely changed my opinion about all the horror stories I had heard about contractors! He was the most professional, conscientious, accessible point person throughout the entire project. He was always responsive and immediately available to solve any issue and did an outstanding job coordinating multiple subcontractors and getting the job finished as soon as possible. He was a pleasure to work with and I recommend him to anyone and everyone without hesitation.

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.
