My family and I had some questions regarding a commercial site in Warrenton and both Steve and his business partner Donald met with us. They explained a lot of questions we had and even pointed out some areas of attention we didn't even know about. It is hard to find good guys like them who are top notch. We are going to continue to use them beyond surveying and use their years of experience to help build our new commercial site.

Eugene is an extremely knowledgeable contractor that will give you the specifics of everything he is doing. He was able to walk me through the repair and teach me the science behind every job he completed. He was able to assist me immediately in my state of emergency and do an excellent job. I would definitely use Rhema Designs again in the future!

Chun-Fa is a talented architect with exceptional professionalism, a wonderful sense of design concepts and a strong work ethic. He is passionate about his work and pays close attention to the customer’s needs. As the architect for the M&T Bank Stadium concourse renovation project recently completed in 2014, his dedication toward design and construction details contributed tremendously to the on-budget and timely project delivery. I highly recommend him to the client who is looking for an architect with design vision and passion.

I hired Winthorpe Design & Build to complete a full renovation of my kitchen and dining room. Everything came out great, Scott and his teams did an awesome job and were fun to work with! Krag designed a perfect design. Dave and his team installed new cabinets, a great back splash and new floor. They rearranged the appliances to give us additional counter space and more room to function in the kitchen. They opened up the walls between the kitchen and dining room which made the rooms seem larger. Krag designed a coffered ceiling, which does a fantastic job tying the room together. We are all very happy with whole experience, but especially my husband who very detailed ordinated! Also I think our dog misses them.

EXPERT IN HIS FIELD!!! After searching for many interior designers, I came across Anthony! He was in the list of designers I was speaking with. THANK GOD I HIRED HIM. Professional, patient, and even helped me coordinate with my customer to secure the deal. He offered more and GAVE WAY MORE than any other designer was even offering! Not only that, but the designs came out "Beautifully," and even gave me different options that showed creativity, precision, and I could tell he payed CLOSE ATTENTION to detail from what the very little bit of information I gave him! I CAN NOW SAY, "I HAVE AN INTERIOR DESIGNER!" Aside from business, I am even having him design my home. Proud to leave this feedback, and I look forward to the trusting business relationship for years to come with Kitchenetal Design Plus. A+ Service. -David New Paradigm Projects Maryland Contractor

I've worked with ELEVATE Design to completely remodel my condominium and the result was not only very creative and high-end, but also very budget conscious. Very flexible, she accommodated my schedule and personality. I like high quality and nice design products and she is very knowledgeable of the market and was able to get them at amazing prices. She coordinated also the contractors, placed orders for materials and other products, so she took all that stress off my shoulders. Great experience and great value, I highly recommend this firm.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.
