Billy went above and beyond the call to help us with our difficult plumbing situation. He also made some great money saving suggestions that enhanced our project beyond our imagination. The price was fair, and for the work, well worth the money! I will definitely call on him again for our future plumbing needs.

Used MGC for several small projects, including a metal storage building, an aquaponics greenhouse, and a mobil poultry coop. Admittedly not large projects but I am very pleased with the design and workmanship of each one. No project is too large or too small and I wouldn't hesitate to use MGC again.

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.

I had a fabulous experience working with Jason, and the team at DFW Autocad. I've never used Thumbtack before, so this was my first exposure. I simply created the details about the job, and joila, I had 4 interested parties. I emailed Jason, and he responded immediately. Set a time to meet with him, and met him the next day. He was very professional, asked a lot of questions, and then I showed him the space I needed drawings for. We agreed on the price, he took his measurements, and he did the work. Picked up the drawings today and it's exactly what I was looking for. Hopefully with the drawings I will be able to get a CO for my building and move on down the road. If not, I am totally confident, Jason can provide what the city needs. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a quality architect, at a reasonable price.

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.

Working with Amir has Been nothing short of a pleasure. My building was not zoned for the intended purpose of what I needed it to be, and he went above and beyond to help me breathe life into a long vacant & vandalized property. He didn’t just come out take measurements, work behind the scenes and invoice me. He made phone calls, and submitted applications and construction plans as needed everything was APPROVED! I without a doubt would hire him again. In fact, I’m not sure if I hired another architect in the future that they could deliver to this level because Amir truly set the bar high. Thanks Amir!

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 and his crew did a quality job on our patio cover. Throughout the process Bill was clear and accurate on what would be required (material) and what they could accomplish. (Time) I was hoping they would match the quality of our existing pergola, but they exceeded our expectations. We had them stain the pergola to match the new patio cover and I was surprised at the color match. I have no reservations recommending Martin & Son Construction.

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.
