I am probably one of the most "picky, detailed oriented and incriminating" of all clients, or that anyone can ever experience in their life! In fact, I am so "Picky" about repairs; drywall, textures and paint, probably most everything about a job, I do not trust most people to even do my jobs, and end up doing most everything myself. I am explaining and saying this because, I give credit where it is due, and can not say enough to praise Mr. Rosalio Gamez and his incredible team (Gamez Drywall & Repair) for their EXCELLENT work! I can not say enough about Rosalio and his team; They arrived promptly, and did everything, and more, than expected. They were quite, courteous, polite, very detailed oriented, worked in sequence with one another, as the great team they are, cleaned up as they go and made sure everything was completed and satisfactory before leaving. I have NEVER experienced a team that works together so well and hard, and did everything to perfection, specifications and to my satisfaction, no questions asked, and had very fair pricing. I had various home projects that needed done, which included; Kitchen Demo (removal) to a built-in-wall & shelving unit, kitchen cabinets, counter and back splashes, all baseboards, carpet and tile removal from my kitchen, dining room, living room and stairs, commode and sink and tile floor, removed and hauled off, (they even repaired my sink valve and went to Home Depot to pick up necessary supplies as needed and they took old kitchen cabinets to my storage building!), among many other CONSTRUCTION REPAIRS to include; Drywall Cracks, Ceiling and Nail Pops repaired (which, by the way, he used screws and reinforcements, which was done correctly and not just a quick fix like most repair people would do!). His drywall repairs and textures, matched to perfection. The new ceiling and wall painting, on my 20' walls, along with the perfect paint lines, up against the ceiling paint was PERFECT, just to name a few of the projects that were done to perfection. He preformed all construction quickly, and supplied the very best quality and expertise bar-none! There is no short-cuts with Gamez Construction, Drywall and Repair. You get the very best, quality, and a professional job, anyone could ever ask for! It was a pleasure to have Rosalio Gamez and his wonderful team work in my home! He was both professional, gracious, respectful and courteous through-out the entire job, all the way to the end. My house was as clean after the job as when it had been before. If you need drywall, or any construction repair, and/or painting job, ask expert, Rosalio Gamez. He's by far the very best in the industry! I would highly and strongly recommend Rosalio Gamez & his incredible team, which I do not do easily. He went above and beyond the Scope of Work and Quality and Perfection! I just hope, when I need his services again, which will be soon; for marble and tile work, he will come back to me! Rosalia, if you see this, please forgive me for putting you through the wringer, being so hard on you and your team, and Thank You! You have my full trust and respect now, Rosalio! You are a real trooper! Thank you again! Iris Selasky

He was able to meet my immediate schedule request and perform various tasks such as basic plumbing and woodwork that reduced additional resources. Although a small repair, he was thorough in addressing my problem concerns and communicated his two phase approach and two day schedule but did not change his cost estimate.

I hired Eric recently to make a few repairs on the wood trim of my home and paint the entire exterior. Eric responded quickly to my request for an estimate and followed through exactly as promised and on time. I was very impressed with his work ethic as well as the quality of his work. I also was very impressed that he was very neat and tidy and cleaned up at the end of each day of work. I couldn't be more please overall and have already asked him for an estimate for other work. Hire Eric....you won't be disappointed!

A&E did my exterior house paint and they did a fabulous job! The team was very thorough and took their time to make sure it was done right. They worked with me throughout the process and encouraged feedback. I got many estimates for the job and they beat all the quotes. So I got an amazing result at a great price. Couldn't be happier! I was so pleased from beginning to end with their service that I have recommended them to a friend. I will definitely use them again in the future and highly recommend A&E Remodeling.

Aaron rewired a house I was renovating and did excellent work. He was very patient. When we had a few setbacks, most notably, with the electric company, causing him to have to leave a couple of times and return later, he willingly did so and “went with the flow” easily. He was also a very conscientious guy, determined to do the job correctly. We had a couple of things that needed to be after the job was finished and he was glad to return when a lot of subs would have gone AWOL after being compensated. We recommend Aaron highly: great work, professional, meticulous, along with very fair pricing. Call him for an estimate on your job. You’ll be pleased that you did. He

I used New Life Construction on a project at my moms house. They were prompt, professional and reasonably priced. They replaced damaged siding and rotted trim on the chimney and around the windows. I appreciated their professionalism and kindness in dealing with my mother, her home, and doing such a great job. She's elderly, and a bit of a handful. I really appreciated the owner's honesty in helping determine the best way to do the project instead of trying to increase the price where he could. He was very knowledgeable and guided in choosing the best products for the job. The work looks beautiful and makes all the difference. I will use them again and in the future and would recommend them to anyone who asked.

We have worked with many construction companies over the years, in multiple states; and none compare to 11Bravo. I would highly recommend 11Bravo Construction to any type of business. They are reliable, they will never take advantage and over charge, they get the job done...the first time, they are personable and they treat every task as if it were their own establishment. From repair jobs to building larger projects, they will handle it. They give great suggestions and will work with you...after working with them, there is no need to seek anyone else.

I first contacted New Direction Structure Care when the original people who were to install our floors didn't show up. We were in a bit of a rush as we were hoping to move into the house the following weekend. The fellows from New Direction met me the same day for an estimate and began work the very next day. It was a huge load off of my mind to know that we wouldn't be moving into a house with bare concrete floors. The work was done more quickly than I had hoped for and it looks amazing. The even fixed a water leak that they noticed while installing the floors. I couldn't be more pleased with New Direction and I will definitely be contacting them the next time the house needs work that is beyond the scope of my limited abilities.

Tommy and his crew saved my bathroom Reno...literally! My first plumber lied about being a licensed plumber. After I inspected his work and called him out for not doing the plumbing correct he quit and that's when Tommy came in. Tommy swung by after a phone short phone call. He and I talked about what happened and what I needed done and said he can do it and he can start ASAP. His crew tore out everything the first guy did and redid it all correctly. This project turned out to be a lot more work than either of us had planned and a lot of issues kept coming up being an older house. Tommy was on top of it and made sure I knew about any issues right away and gave me a honest answer every time I had a question. He's very responsive even when he's busy. He's not out there to take your money, he really cares about his clients and wants an end product he can stand behind. I highly recommend him, it's hard to find good workers in this field and Tommy's crew is definitely one of the few! Can't go wrong with Bolt Construction I'll be using them again on my future projects!

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.

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.
