The technicians were very professional and on time for the project. I had been trying for months to get someone to fix my ceiling. They made sure everything was to my liking. I would use their services again for any project.

Greg was very responsive in coming to the property & providing an estimate. He returned as agreed & did the job quickly & neatly. The before & after difference is tremendous as he had to get rid of decayed wood around windows & replace all door parts. He cleaned up very well after the job was finished & made sure everything was in good working order.

I had Bryan do some work at our house and his professionalism was excellent. He not only did what we ask him to do but there were a few situations where he knew something else would work better and rather than doing what we had ask he brought it to our attention so that we could make an educated decision. I am very happy with the quality of the work and a timely manner that it got done. I would definitely recommend him for any jobs that you have no matter the size.

I recently had to have extensive termite damage repaired at my home including re-doing my whole kitchen, replacing a stairway to upstairs, redoing a laundry room and replacing a good portion of the back of my house. I could not have been more pleased with the excellent work done by Doug and his crew. The whole project far exceeded my expectations. My kitchen and the new stairs are just beautiful. Doug and his crew were efficient, well-mannered and excellent workers. I would highly recommend them.

Brian from DJ Construction assessed the necessary work needed on the wood deck and provided a cost effective proposal on replacement/repair. Once an action plan was developed we promptly had the work done. We are very content with all the work DJ Construction did for us.

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.
