Jose was able to assemble a piece of ikea furniture within the hour of first contact. He was on time, professional, knew exactly what he was doing and was very fair in his pricing! I’ll definitely use him for other projects and would give him 10 star rating if that was available!

I had no idea how bad my drainage was until Rich arrived. From an upside down p-trap to many unnecessary pieces, causing slow draining and build up that eventually caused blockage beyond the wall. He cleared the drain and then took it upon himself to just fix it (he said it was usually it’s simple to rework, unfortunately, not in this case here). He minimized piping to just what was necessary, with all correct down flow and proper washers. Including cutting 45 from wall outlet and adding new trap adapter to make proper connection to Ptrap. Most PVC replaced with all new except a few pieces reused for under sink equipment connection. He also made recommendations for disposal use & maintenance. He did all of this, and spent nearly 3 hours, for a minimal fee. His clean up was great and the drainage is a work of art (see pic). We are truly grateful Rich showed up. I highly recommend him and will definitely use him again.

Said was very good at solving problems already existing when I, previously, had tried to assemble the furniture myself. He remedied the most important tasks. 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!

Rick is nothing short of amazing. A real pro who communicates and thinks outside the box. He says what he does and does what he says. Also a very personable guy. He goes above and behind. Never seen a contractor like him before. I will use him as many times as he will let me.

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.

I only can say excellent things about this company. I don't know too much about roofs in details so when it came to the reality that I might need a new one after a storm and with all the troubles with my insurance company I was in need of the best contractor. And they certainly did not disappoint. From the beginning they handled my case with professionalism and care for my needs, they took care of everything, met with the adjuster, even pointed out more problems to him than originally my insurance thought or wanted to pay for which certainly I could not do by myself. I could trust them 100% in everything. And of course the work was done with the same professionalism, they finished in one day and even left a clean job site behind. I am very thankful for all their work and I am sure I will call them in the future again when I need something to renovate around my home.

Bill Jones of Martin and Son Construction built an outstanding custom pergola for me. His detail work is far from ordinary. The stained cedar he used is beautiful and will last for many years to come. He was on time and kept me well informed on every aspect of construction. In spite of the daily rain that turned to extremely hot days, my pergola was completed in a timely manner. Bill delivers good quality work at competitive prices and is very dependable. My pergola is absolutely beautiful and I look forward to spending many enjoyable days using it. I will definitely call on him for any future projects. Bill is not just a carpenter, he is a true craftsman.

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.
