Juan did an incredible job! He is very professional and provides quality service. I always worry about the quality of service, especially when it comes to construction in my home, however I could tell Juan knows what he is doing and he doesn't take short cuts. He does the job thoroughly and EFFICIENTLY. I got two ceiling fans installed on my patio, beforehand I joked with my husband that I don't want the fans to wobble since they drop down, but they are sturdy and steadfast, as Juan put them on high as soon as he finished and I've had them going all day. I read the reviews before I booked JLD Services and I want to tell you to go ahead and book if you want great handiwork that you will be satisfied with. 😃

We hired Isaac to paint a few rooms in our house. He gave us a very good estimate and the work that his crew did was excellent. After several attempts with other painters to get estimates/work done, Isaac was the one painter who stood out with excellent communication and follow up. His crew showed up exactly when they said they would and did an outstanding job. We will definitely be recommending this company to anyone who needs some painting or any other work done.

I had all but wonderful experience with PES construction on their roofing job. The quote was detailed with all the explanation of what to expect and what's the pricing of the labor and materials used(breaking down to what materials used further) and the men were really punctual and worked all day and finished the whole roof in 2 days. I am definitely recommending them to my friends. True professionals with neat job.

Nice guy, knows a lot about Construction. He was faced with a pretty large job and completed it successfully. He did everything from demo work to redesign, plumbing and tile work. He did install one tile that was chipped on the edge but it is barely noticeable. I'm pretty sure he would come out and replace it if I called him, because he's that kind of guy. He worked with our schedule and priced the job below my other bids. Trustworthy, and I would use him again.

Our house flooded in the May 2015 Houston flood and we chose Precision Construction to do the water damage repairs. One word - AMAZING. Tom, the owner, gave a very detailed and easy to read quote/bid for work and said he had experience dealing with insurance and would help us through that. Throughout the renovation, Tom was always available to answer questions we had about the house and how things were going. He gave us amazing recommendations on where to buy materials such as granite countertops, brick for our exterior, and our flooring. It was great to have somewhere other than Lowes to go to for our material needs! Our insurance company tried to low ball us by paying $x/sqft for flooring and sheet rock, and Tom helped get us more money by educating us on the industry standard pricing for work and helped us be prepared to ask for more from insurance. We did, and it worked! The timeline for work was given in an honest and straightforward manner. Tom is very organized and was able to keep his crews on our projected timeline (which is a rarity with construction projects!) We had such a positive experience that if our house ever floods again, we will go with Precision Construction again no questions asked.

I was given a fair estimate, the job was completed on time, and the crew cleaned up after themselves. One of the crew also took the time to water a small tree that had to be transplanted. I would highly recommend EG Concrete for anyone in need of a patio extension.

These guys came thru in the clutch! They were very accommodating, as well as helpful with providing solutions to our security concerns beyond just installing the door that we called them to install initially. Even though they came to give an estimate when they realized the importance & urgency of the matter not only were they willing but they were prepared to give top notch service on the spot.

I am more than pleased with the master bathroom remodel that Twelve/12 created for me. The two owners of the company, Oliver and Jeremy, are a dynamic duo who successfully guided the project from planning to completion. Oliver met with me several times at the planning stage to to determine exactly what my vision was. His knowledge, patience, and understanding helped us create a workable plan within my budget that included all the features I wanted plus some touches that I hadn't even thought of. Then Jeremy took charge of the construction and brought the plan to life. He is a perfectionist and ensured that every detail of the work was done to the highest standards. We established a project schedule and they stuck to it. On the day that the countertop crew was in my driveway, cutting the quartz to fit, it began raining heavily. Rather than lose a day, Jeremy made a quick run to Walmart, purchased a canopy, erected it on the driveway to protect them and their saws and the work continued. The beauty and functionality of the final product exceeded my expectations and the project cost was very reasonable for the quality of the work. I highly recommend them for any remodeling project you may be considering.

I can not thank enough to Red Brick Construction. We bought the house over 34 years old and with their expertise I feel like it is a brand new house now for my family. As a family from a different country and without knowing anything about the construction, Erem Boray and his team made it so easy for us to decide about all the details. I can recommend them to anyone who looks for a professional help for their home with an excellent price ! Thanks for making our dream come through Red Brick Construction 🙏🏻 you are now part of our family

I have used Xpress since before they were even called Xpress! I am a Fixed Operations Manager at a Car Dealership, so one of my responsibilities is to handle all facets of facilities maintenance and repairs. The facility is several decades old and prior management neglected the responsibility. We rarely go a full week without having a facilities issue and Travis and Melissa are always our first call. We have used them for renovation work, electrical, plumbing, lighting, paint, ceiling tiles, parking lot striping, fencing, door repairs, tile flooring, and even preparation for OSHA and EPA inspections. They always present an estimate that gives us a full scope of what options there are for us. Sometimes they find options that we haven’t even considered. They give us the full spectrum and show us how we can back down to what is bare minimum. We normally find great value somewhere in the middle which is exactly what we are looking for. The work is always of good quality and they always find small ways to throw in some additional things they find. I have recently purchased a new home and I am now working with Xpress on having a fireplace added to my home. The versatility of their company, the flexibility for scheduling, and fair pricing are an asset to our company. Additionally I love doing business with small family owned and operated businesses. I definitely recommend allowing Xpress the opportunity to earn your business.

It is a rare experience indeed when you're genuinely happy working with a contractor. I recently had a new roof installed and needed to get some fascia boards replaced. Big Tyme Construction (Cory) came out to assess the work needed. He sent me a written estimate the next day. Big Tyme crew showed up the next rain-free day. I was very impressed and appreciative of the care they took working around my brand new shingles. Truth be told, the fascia board work should've been done before the roof install but that didn't deter Big Tyme crew from getting the job done to my satisfaction. They went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of. I highly recommend BigTyme Construction.

I had J & S contractors work on my forever home a few months ago. Let me begin with saying that my home turned out to be everything I have ever dreamed of. I cannot begin to express how much of a well job Mr. Vazquez did. This is a wholesome and reliable contractor that truly love the work that they do. All I had to do was speak the image I had and Mr. V. did the rest. He was so informative and through when explaining what need to be done, how it would be done, and also why it needed to be done that way. See, my husband & I are not too knowledgeable on this front so having his clarity & transparency made me feel much more at ease. The whole crew was amazing, they all worked diligently and were very respectful to my home. I cannot express enough how great the result were. I would highly recommend J&S for your contracting needs, you will not be disappointed!

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.  

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.  

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 much does a project manager charge per hour?

You may choose to hire a construction project manager for your residential or commercial project. For the hands-on homeowner who wants to be involved in home construction but isn’t comfortable hiring subcontractors, a construction project manager can oversee these relationships and supervise labor. Typically, construction project managers charge a fee that is a flat percentage of the total construction project cost. This may range from 10 percent to 15 percent, depending on the company and the services they provide. This means a $30,000 home remodel project would have a construction project management fee of $3,000-$4,500. Hiring a construction project manager generally precludes the markup on subcontractor labor charged by a general contractor. The drawback to this choice is that, unlike a general contractor, the construction project manager won’t be financially responsible for the work of the subcontractors. For larger projects, you may hire a construction project manager who will also hire a general contractor. This provides the benefits of the general contractor along with the management services of the project manager, who will be on board from the beginning. The construction project manager will be involved in the design phase and work with the architects and the building crew, facilitating a smoother overall process.

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.
