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. 😃

Awesome company, very pleased! We hired Realta for a large home remodeling project; handicap-accessible room. Osman and his team designed and constructed a new room in our house equipped with a roll-in shower, grab bars in the shower and by the toilet, shower bench and accessible sink. They also placed hand rails along the room that were fitted for my mother-in-law, built a sizable ramp, the maneuverability they created for her is superb. One thing that Osman did that impressed our family was that he took the time to read about ADA building codes to make sure my MIL would be comfortable and that the room was built around her needs. We are grateful we found Realta and that Osman was up for the challenge of building something different!

I contracted Precision Construction to remove the light box and install recessed lights on my kitchen ceiling. Tom Pham communicated with me via emails and texts on what exactly needs to be done, and what the cost of the project would be. The work was scheduled for the next day after we agreed on the price. The crew showed up on time as scheduled, work was professional done, and they cleaned up after it is finished. I love the new lights in the kitchen so much that I now contract Precision Construction to upgrade my kitchen counters to granite and also replace the backsplash.

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.

Joel was not only early for the project, but he did it with great professionalism and patience. Although my project was simple, he approached it with great attention to detail and hard work. He was also easy to communicate with. I will definitely work with him again in the future and I highly recommend him to others.

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

Core did a wonderful job on my kitchen project. I had meet with 3 other contractors and Daniel from Core made me feel the most comfortable and he was very knowledgeable about the construction process and was able to explain to me step by step how the project would go. His guys were always in matching shirts, they were always professional and courteous. I had a vision of what i wanted my kitchen to ne and Core Contracting not only made my vision a reality they expanded on it with there own design ideas. The guys as Core just seemed to me overly involved compared to most contractors i have worked with, its like they cared as if it was there own house. I just can't say enough about Daniel and his employees.

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.

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!

Amazing Dezign by Simon O. is a company filled with master craftsman who can bring any vision to light. We were very specific in our needs and they exceeded our expectations. We hired them to design, build, and finish two white oak tables and a coat rack for my son’s room. All three pieces came out stunning and are beautifully designed. Their work speaks for itself and looks very high end. Our goal was to have our furniture look like it belonged in a designer showroom and the pieces they created look top of the line. We shopped around a lot before going with them and other companies were either much more expensive or could not guarantee us the outcome we were looking for. Simon guided us through the whole process, made us feel at ease, and delivered more than we expected. The best decision we ever made was going with Amazing Dezign and we will definitely be using them again for other projects.

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.  

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 is a contractor license number?

A contractor license number is proof that your contractor is operating their business legally, that they have the proper documentation required by your state or region, and that they are competent in their area of work (electrical, plumbing, construction, etc.). Licensed contractors should freely advertise their contractor license number. If not, you can request it before considering them for hire. You can also research your contractor using their license number. The database for your state will indicate the field they are licensed to work in; whether they are up to date on insurance, workers’ compensation and bonds; and whether they have any consumer complaints issued against them. If the licensed contractor you are hiring does not have employees, they are not required to carry workers’ compensation. Each state or region will have their own database for licenses, such as the State of Oregon Construction Contractors Board. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.
