Branden and his colleague were wonderful. He was very courteous and polite when I initially called him. The day of service he contacted me to let me know he was available earlier than scheduled, if I wanted the work to begin sooner. They arrived, saw the space and immediately went to work. The bunk bed set we have has a twin and full bed as well as a staircase and I am ecstatic about how perfectly it was put together. He also fixed my running toilet and hung my laundry room coat racks on the wall securely. I asked them to mount something on the kids door that was not discussed and there was no issue. I loved their customer service and constant communication and wish I had more for them to do when they were at my home. I definitely would hire this company again and see why he has a 5 star rating. This company was my first thumbtack experience and I am glad I went with them. I have new handymen to do my home repairs.

Walter showed up on time, got the job done quickly and correctly, and didn't leave a mess behind like some plumbers I've dealt with in the past. Not only would I recommend him for a future job, I've already taken my own advice -- he's also a general contractor, and I'm already using him for an exterior house repair this weekend.

Plain and simple, Tony does good work. His attention to detail and craftsmanship is second to none. He installed a difficult herring bone backsplash for us with ease. Individual glass tiles aren’t easy to cut but it was no problem for him. He also completely opened up a closet for us and installed a custom built in bench seats and cubby hole storage system. He also painted one of our rooms with a nice stripe pattern. He is very nice and his prices are great. There isn’t a job he can’t perform.

Matt responded right away and was flexible with my schedule, very prompt and took care not to damage my home. He installed tile in my foyer,bathroom and coat closet area and was open to the unique style I wanted done and was willing to try and it came out really well and it was a small area and that made the cuts even more difficult to be sure everything looked great. Price was reasonable and I would definitely use him again. Im happy with the work.

Andre was excellent; his crew replaced a fence for us. They arrived on time, did nice work and even ended up doing some custom work because something we had asked for wasn't available. There were a couple things we asked them to revise because it wasn't quite what we had expected, but Andre and his crew took care of it immediately to our satisfaction. His crew doesn't speak the best English, so there were a few miscommunications. Other than that, we were very pleased. We would definitely work with them again.

These guys were fantastic. They demolished a large stone house, backfilled, graded the land and finished with seed and straw. They were quick and professional and had the best price. They were pleasant to work with and kept me up to date on the project with photos when I couldn't be there. I highly recommend.

Came highly recommended! Extremely professional and courteous. Had them replace trim extensively, paint exterior of house and general sealing and caulking. Job had some weather related delays but other than minor adjustments to our punch list, these guys did a great job. Will definitely hire them again!

Can't say enough about Norlan! My deck was in dire need of repair. When I purchased my home 4 years ago, the deck needed to be repaired, but I didn't have the money to do it at the time. When I was able to take care of it, Norlan responded and did everything we wanted and more. His team was professional, friendly, made sure I was happy with the work, and gave me an amazing price! After he finished the deck, we asked him to do more work. You won't regret using Norlan Construction. Great job!

We recently had a mold issue at our residence, and being new home owners with a young child we were very concerned. We found Eugene through thumbtack and explained what our problem was. He was very professional and proposed what he thought would be a solution to the problem, not just a bandaid. On his advice we signed up for an energy audit. We went forward with Eugene from the information received on the energy audit and his initial thoughts. Not only did Eugene fix the problem but he also helped make our home much more energy efficient in the process. A few of the major things he facilitated was to fix insulation issues in our basement / attic, provide solutions and contractors to fix our HVAC system (Which had a 50% loss on the way upstairs), and to install an ERV system to provide fresh oxygen not only at the source, but through the entire house. Our HVAC is now running much better and our indoor air quality is superb. Eugene has helped provide a safe environment for my family to live and grow in. I would definitely recommend his expertise in building science to anyone. Eugene will help find the source of the issue and start there, rather than a quick patch job that will need to be redone in the future.

Working with Patrick was such a pleasure! I was very much into adding bungalow features to my home and he understood my wishes completely. We perused Books and magazine articles, spoke at length as to the feel I wanted for my addition and it turned out perfectly. He is very strong in design and taking advantage of every inch there is. He surprised me with additional features I hadn't thought of, and believe me I thought I had everything covered. He is available for your calls and works in a very timely manner. I can't say enough about our successful time together. Diane Henceroth

STOP AND READ THIS!!!! Julio will save you money and do a wonderful job! I got my rental apartment recarpeted for about half of what it would cost with Home Depot. The carpet itself is very nice. I think it is the same that you find in Lowe's or Home Depot. They pulled other the old Capet. Home Depot would have charged $500 for this alone! Great job. Excellent workers. Trustworthy. I just let then in and then came back later in the day. My expectations were definitely exceeded!

We recently had a complete kitchen remodel and are very happy with the results. We hired Dennis Gillooly of Trimline Construction as the general contractor. We were on a very tight budget and after pricing the options from a local cabinet supplier, Dennis suggested we look at using Ready to Assemble cabinets instead. He explained the various options and helped us with the design, layout, and ordering of these cabinets from an east coast supplier. This saved us more than 50% vs the original quoted cost from the local supplier! We got really nice cabinets at a fraction of the cost. Dennis put these cabinets together, installed them, helped us pick the perfect handles, installed those as well, and completed all the trim work to make the finished job look wonderful. We love our new kitchen – it looks great! We also previously used Dennis Gillooly to finish our 1,200 sq foot basement. Dennis took care of managing everything including the design, framing, drywall, a full bathroom, kitchenette/bar area, a ton of storage closets including a cedar closet and custom shelving, the big recreation room, enclosed office space, new French doors, cutting in new windows in our concrete walls, and he personally installed 1,200 sq feet of engineered wood flooring throughout. We painted the basement ourselves in order to save money and found Dennis very willing to work with us to make such a large project both affordable but also exactly what we wanted.

Michael and Rosen have done excellent work for me for more than 15 years. They gutted and finished my master and guest bathrooms; gutted and fully remodeled my basement, including expanding the half bath there to a full bath and installing a gas fireplace; they built new stairway access to my basement; built an attached shed/garage; built a large composite deck; and finally, built our long planned addition that included a new entryway and bumped out the entire back of our house, expanding our dining room space and fully remodeling an expanded kitchen space. Milano Construction has been in business for a long time. They are a small operation, but can do anything from fix a plugged pipe to building additions. They are trustworthy, honest to a fault, and extremely fair with their pricing. They are a customer-oriented operation that can provide turn key service if you don’t want to get involved in the nitty gritty or work with you every step of the way in a truly custom way. I work from home so had the opportunity to be involved in every aspect of my projects and have learned plenty from watching over their shoulders and “helping” out along the way. These two are patient and want you to be satisfied with the outcome of the job. They don’t cut corners and do it right every time. I recommend Michael and Rosen for any handyman or remodeling work you may need. You’ll be hard pressed to find a comparably priced, dependable team that does the kind of quality work that they do. Attached are photos of our finished kitchen/dining room space, so you can get a sense for their work product.

Homequest did an excellent job on my home projects in Washington DC. I have a 100 year old row house and Scott and Asha did a great job managing a project to build a new powder room and renovate an old walk-in closet into an modern office space. Scott and Asha were very responsive with questions throughout the project and their prices were very fair. I would have no hesitation in hiring them again on any home construction project.

In the 30 years I have been in the commercial and residential construction industry, Larry has been one of my favorite architects to work with. I have known and worked with Larry for over 10 years. His attention to detail and delivering what the client wants is second to none. Larry is always using the latest design technologies in his work. My favorite is where he takes a photograph of where the structure is to go and comes back with a photograph that now includes the structure and you would swear it's already there it looks that real. It doesn't matter if it's grass lot, busy commercial corner or body of water that needs a boat house. Larry will show you exactly what it will look like before the first shovel of dirt has been moved. I won't say he's the best, but I consider him one of the best. I highly recommend Larry for any type of work whether it's a boat house, custom home, commercial or industrial building. He can design them all to your complete satisfaction.

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.
