Installation of a pond with waterfall, rocks and plantings. Tremain arrived when scheduled and gave me an estimate to complete the job. He worked around my schedule and did a fantastic job creating a very beautiful water garden. I loved how he helped me save my goldfish which were in my old pond. A very kind and caring person. Will hire again for other projects.

Mr Slava has worked on several projects for us (bathroom remodel, painting, tile work, backsplash tile) and did an EXCEPTIONAL job! He is very professional, efficient (less talking more working kind of guy) and detail oriented. He takes an ownership of his work. If you want a perfectionist contractor (yes, they exist), he is the one to be hired!

Hemi is very hard working and knowledgeable. He performed the job in an above average fashion in a short period of time. Once the agreed upon work and price is established, I would (with ANY JOB) recommend getting a proposal in writing with a start time, finish time and" scope of work" so there are no questions between the home owner and contractor. I would hire this contractor again!

Lee and his employee James were great! After having 5 contractors come to my house for in-home estimates to complete my finished off garage, I hired Lee for the job. Lee came out to give us a quote to frame and drywall a ten foot wall, to closet in my washer and dryer - he was extremely reasonable in price, started immediately, and had the job done on time, as promised. They were prompt, excellent, quality work and cleaned up everything when the job was complete. I would absolutely hire Lee and James again!!

Don called me soon after I posted my project(s). He wasn't available immediately for an urgent plumbing issue, so he had one of his subcontractors call me. Long story short, "TJ" came out with "Will" within hours of my contact with Don. They not only fixed the issue, they did it for less than half of what my plumber was going to charge me for JUST work on the pipes, which had to be accessed through an exterior wall. TJ and Will were professional, knowledgeable, and experienced, and also patient with my questions while they completed the work. Additionally, TJ purchased upgraded products to complete the project, to ensure my pipes would be protected from weather-related future issues. I have never seen such thorough work. When they finished, they cleaned the entire section of siding on the house, AND the brick patio next to it. It looked better when they finished than it did before they started. They were the best contractors I have ever had work on any project in any home I have ever owned, and am a convinced major fan of both Don, who had sympathy for the difficulty I was having finding someone and his sending out these two, and TJ and Will for doing a spectacular job.

I am unsure if you received my previous post so I am writing another one. I contacted my home warranty company because I was having an electrical issue. I was contacted by a representative from Bell Cow HVAC and an appointment was scheduled. The contractor, Ryan Dietz contacted me on the day of the appointment and asked if he could come before the scheduled time because he had finished a prior appointment earlier. Ryan was very professional. He listened to me regarding the issue and went through the process of determining what the problem was. Once he determined what the issue was, he took care of it, and also provided additional information on how to handle it in the future. Ryan also answered my questions on issues not related to the problem that he took care of. He didn't have to do that but I could see that Ryan is a person who has great work qualities and really cares about the service he provides to his customers. I was very impressed and intend to contact Bell Cow HVAC in the future.

I cannot say enough good things about GC Contracting! Everyone associated with these contractors was very professional. They were always on time and even completed when they said they would! I have never had that with a contractor before so it is an extreme rare find. The wonderful craftsmanship exceeded my expectations. I will be using GC Contracting again for sure and recommending them when ever possible.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    Why should you hire a contractor?

    Hiring a general contractor is a good idea for many remodeling projects. Home renovation contractors have a broad range of skills to manage, coordinate and complete a project. They should help make sure your project comes in on time and within your budget as they hire and supervise all the necessary subcontractors, including electricians and plumbers. They also handle procuring all the materials required for your job. Some homeowners look to save money by acting as their own contractor, but an experienced home renovation contractor is worth the cost. They should know local building codes, be able to pull all necessary permits, and work with inspectors to make sure the construction meets local codes. Also, because they get professional discounts, they can typically buy materials at a better price than you can; better prices on materials and labor save you money, and make up for at least a percentage of the cost of the 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.  

    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.

    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.
