We had reached out to ed regarding our tenant that had moved out and left a poignant odor from the pets and we had scrambled to get the house ready to put on the market. ed had one of his managers come out on site to evaluate what needed to be done and promptly recommended an ozone treatment as well as wiping Down all the walls and steams cleaning the carpets. The entire job took almost a week to complete and I am happy to say that now our house is smelling fresh and clean again thanks to Ed and his guys...on point, responsive, respectful to our needs and customer driven.

EES Services did a great job! They replaced our flue in a 100 year old house, so no easy task with the old chimney etc....but EES arrived on time, with a smile and got to work. They are professional, polite and get the job done. The price fit our budget, communication was excellent and I will be using EES again for my other chimney liner. They restored my faith in contractors. Hire EES and know it will get done.

"After some miscommunication on the initially agreed upon time, Tim called me this following morning to apologize and see if they could come by to move the furniture that day. I wasn't available to answer the call and tried to call him back. While the phone was ringing, my doorbell rang. It was Tim and a helper asking if he could move the furniture. I very much appreciated his initiative and willingness to apologize. (It's incredible how many contractors we've had who lack both.) They moved our items upstairs with minimal damage. It wasn't an easy task to get our couch up the stairs and around the turn, but he took great care and breaks when needed, which is exactly what we wanted."

We had a long list of things to be done before listing our home for sale. Jenrii with Ordonez Home Improvement did an excellent job tackling every project. Jenrii enclosed the landing where we had removed a handicap ramp - this was not an easy repair and required good carpentry skills. He also installed new closet wood bi-fold doors in a basement bedroom. Again, not an easy task as they had to be “fitted” to the closet. His troubleshooting skills were evident here. He replaced two old light switches, four electric outlets, and a bathroom vanity light fixture. These were only a few of the things he did. Jenrii is very professional, polite, thorough, and responsive. He texted us each morning on the days he worked to let us know what time to expect him. He works quickly and does excellent work for extremely reasonable rates. I would not HESITATE to recommend him for small jobs to larger remodeling projects. I was a commercial real estate project manager for 15 yrs, building shopping centers and office buildings - so I can definitively say that Jenrri knows what he is doing and does it very, very well.

First off: great quality. I don't think I could have asked for a better realization of my plans for my bathroom remodel, which included extensive tile work and construction of a new closet. Pricing was reasonable; they were in the middle of the estimates that I got. That being said, there are a couple of negatives. The schedule was quoted for ten days, but it took sixteen. I did need to take half of one of the days originally scheduled to go into the office to support a client meeting, but a week's extra labor time to finish seemed excessive to me. Especially since after the original two weeks were finished, I had limited flexibility at work and needed to push work off to weekends. All told, with my restrictions at work, it took an extra two weeks beyond what was expected. Part of the problem was punctuality: workers were frequently late, so less got done each day. I also asked to keep a couple of pieces from the demo of the original bathroom that I never got. Overall, I would recommend this contractor if you have a reasonably flexible schedule. They truly do beautiful work, and I'm ultimately very happy with how my bathroom turned out. My designs were executed very nicely. I was just a little disappointed that it took so long.

I can't recommend the Brandon Contractor team highly enough. I had a small construction project that needed to be done urgently the week between Christmas and New Years. I called and explained my situation, and not only did they come out that night to give me a quote, but the job was completely finished the next day. They gave me a reasonable price and further advice about how to fix the issue. I really appreciated the service that I got from them, especially considering that it was a small job, on short notice, and that it was the week of Christmas. They did great work and I would not hesitate to hire them again.

Patrick's work is second to none. He took the time to make sure the wheelchair ramp for my father was ADA compliant. His entire concern throughout the job was to maintain my dad's safety and comfort. Also, not only is the ramp very sturdy, it looks nice too. When the job was finished, there was absolutely no mess. Everything was cleaned like the construction never happened! I plan on referring Stares Restoration to everybody.

The team is great! They did such an amazing job fixing our small odd ball jobs (cutting/ capping water pipes in our MB; adding recessed lighting;oving electrical outlets and repairing holes in our drywall.) They did such an amazing job fixing the eyesores, you are not able to tell there used to be a sink in the bedroom or entertainment center in the family room. We definitely recommend JJ Contracting Services LLC. We will use them for all of our remodeling projects.

I am so glad we selected MJ Home Services LLC for our home's basement waterproofing project. We listed the project on Thumbtack and had 3 companies respond, MJ Homes Services was one of them. One of the other companies came with a complicated and insulting sales process, that had us spending two hours looking at few brochures and lots of out of business company records of former competitors while recommending options to leave our basement busted up with another project to renovate. MJ Homes Services was different. Apart from being the first to respond and show up for a free inspection, they were very professional and studied our home's problems in detail. They were genuinely interested in solving the problem, once and for all rather than just earning the business. They came out twice for pre project assessment. The owner of the company, John, came and lead the design of the solution to remedy our flooding problems. The solution was comprehensive tackling the problem from all directions e.g. Competitive French Drain Network, Landscape Grading, Awning Construction, Sump Pump flow redirection, Concrete Patio Demolition, Surrounding Neighbor Water Flow Analysis etc. When the project started, just like most constructions, the crew ran into issues with valid grounds for variation. Rather, Brian and the team under John's leadership took the professional route to honor their commitment to working within our budget. In fact, the crew were so professionally that they made innovative design and construction choices should have costed us about 5 thousands dollars more for the project. I could not help but think what would have happened if we went with the other company. They would have been so rigid on the approach and inflexible with scope. I have no doubt in my mind that MJ Homes Services was a God sent answer to our home's basement floodings problem because we had spent thousands over the years on different remedies including a complicated sump pump system with another company to no avail. Finally, when it comes to being responsiveness and customer delight, Melissa of MJ Home Services is the Queen of it. She kept us up to date before, during and at project completion. During the project, it was on a day-to-day basis. She was also able to work with the crew to achieve a scope that's truly above contract. I am very grateful to have MJ Homes Services work on our home project. I will certainly look forward to any opportunity to use their services in future.

Excellent service! I have used A&A Services LLC a few times. Quality and professionalism. Recently with all the wind we had locally my roof took a severe beating. I spoke to the owner, explained my issue and he was able to handle it the very next day. I will definately continue to use this company. I appreciate the honesty and responsiveness since I personally have no experience in construction / roofing.

Stuart Richardson from Scottie Contracting has done a lot of work for us over the past 10 years or so, to include the total remodeling of two masters bathrooms (different houses); installation of a couple of tile floors; installation of a wood floor; repair of a broken water pipe; repair of damaged drywall; electrical wiring; installation of a water heater; deck repair; and a lot of painting. He has always been very cooperative and professional, and has always been reasonably priced. My Wife and I would highly recommend Stuart to anyone needing any type of home repair or construction.

I hired New Vision Properties Construction Services to remodel my kitchen. It badly needed work and had to be completely gutted. New Vision Properties provided outstanding service and high-quality work--they finished my project on schedule, kept me appraised of progress and were very transparent about costs. Richard and his crew were courteous and very professional. My new kitchen looks great, and I plan to re-hire them for my next remodeling project.

I could not be more happy with the project that Reyes Construction & Design did for me. I had existing cabinets and the team installed custom counter and shelving above. Cesar and his team were professional, fairly priced, meticulous in their craftsmanship and made my vision come to reality. The team was thorough from top to bottom. I will be sharing his contact info with all of my friends and he will be my first call for any future projects. I am so impressed, grateful and happy!

Julio was fantastic! I bought an old house with a structural beam issue. I was looking for someone to give me a straight answer on what needed to be done. Julio explained every step to me and why he proposing to do the work that way. He gave me hands down the best estimate, in price and detail of work. Julio started work exactly when he told me he would, sent me pictures and texts throughout the process, and finished ahead of schedule. He went above and beyond by adding some hardware that he felt was needed for structural reasons, but stuck to his original price estimate. I plan to call Julio for other construction needs I have. He's a great guy, will be real with you, show up on time, and do great work for a great price!

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.  

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 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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
