It was great working with Hemi and crew. Each day when I got home from work Hemi would stop what he was doing to explain project progress. Yard is regraded, sod laid and a small driveway expansion complete on time and on budget.

I am very pleased with the exterior stair rails and banister that Greg built and installed on my home. They are well made and will last for years. Greg is very personable and easy to work with. He is an excellent carpenter and designer. He came when he said he would and left the area spotless. I have another project for him as soon as he can get to it.

Let's talk about Brandon. Not only did he take the time to answer every question I had, but he listened to requests I had as well. He responded to me quickly and kept me up to date on where he was on the project. At some point, I wanted to change the steps he had done for me. [Not his fault, it was originally my design and I changed it on him well after the fact.] he not only helped me figure out how to get the design I wanted to work, but was VERY fair on the price. I had an OCD moment and wanted some posts centered and when I told him, he told me he figured I may want that and had already thought about how he would change then so it would be nothing to do. Part way through the project, my husband hired some guys to drop off wood at our house. These guys DUMPED bolder size tree trunks taller then my car in my driveway and left! Wouldn't come back to cut them and we had no way to do it! Brandon came to my rescue and rented a machine to cut them up for my husband and even stacked them for us. He even cleaned up the front yard for us too. The deck for the front and back are now done and beautifully completed. It was a pure board base with a TREX railing. Thank you Brandon for all your hard work! We hope to work with you again soon!

Mr. Chandlers services were subperb. I would highly recommend him for any services involving the repair and remodeling of houses. He's made different repairs to our house and each repair was done in a timely and professional fashion. He went above and beyond our expectations. He also worked with and around our schedules and was great working around our kids and even taught them a little of what he was doing. He is a family man from what we know of him and also a believer, which we love. Thank you Mr.Chandler for your services, you were exceptional and we will be in touch for the next project. -The Richardson Family-

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.
