Cleaver Construction constructed a handrail for my front steps at the request of my insurance company. I did not think a handrail would look good at all because I own a historic victorian home, but I was pleasantly surprised with the finished product. David constructed the handrail out of wood and installed it the next day. The handrail is sturdy and visually appealing. I would hire him again.

Bordeaux Construction Services did an outstanding job on a water damage repair job for my currently leased home. I believe the price was just right especially for the quick response from Lee. The home had first floor drywall damage caused by a plumbing leak in the 2nd floor master bath. Lee contacted me within 30 minutes of my quote request on Thumtak.com and asked to take a look at the water damage to the property two days later, on a Saturday, in order to provide a quote for the repair. After confirming with the tenant, we solidified the time. I was so happy with the expedited response and his response to me in general on the website that I then explained the problem to the best of my knowledge. I wanted a single general contractor to take care of my problem! It is such a pain dealing with multiple contractors for a repair job. I asked if Lee would could find the leak, repair it and the damaged drywall. He told me he would definitely do his best to fix the problem but he really needed to look at it first. I authorized him to do what he could. When Lee showed up at the property on Saturday, he did just that. He removed the damaged drywall, inspected the master bath plumbing, troubleshot by testing the bathtub plumbing and found the leak. He repaired the plumbing on the spot. He explained to the tenant they needed to allow time for the water in the ceiling to dry and for the repair to cure. On Monday, he called the tenant and asked them to test the repair. All went well and he scheduled the drywall repair two days later. The ceiling is dry wall with knock-down plaster which can be extremely hard to match in the middle of the ceiling. The tenant was extremely happy with the workmanship. I couldn't be more happy with his efforts as a property owner who is currently deployed overseas. He turned a truly stressfull situation for myself and the tenant family into a total success. Thank you Lee!

The Help Squad was called in at the last minute to complete the interior design of a new construction single family home. Their dedication to this job and their eye for detail proved to be amazing. The interior of this new home was absolutely gorgeous and awe inspiring. They were also able to keep the project under budget. Nothing but great service from the Help Squad!

Great experience! My house looks great! I like that they took the time to make sure my siding was secure before pressure washing began. They even trimmed the tree limbs that were touching the house. I will definitely hire Burgess Construction again!

After and awful encounter with Coblentz construction & concrete (btw who was rude and just nasty), I was very hesitant to use Thumb Tack for this job. But Richard saved the day! Richard was very easy to work with. He went above and beyond to ensure the job was done right and I am extremely satisfied. He made communication a breeze. I highly recommend him. His work is amazing and he takes pride in what he does.

Everything about hiring Freedom Construction Services went perfectly. We had a last minute job that needed to be done before we sold our house. James was easy to reach and responded quickly, thoroughly and professionally, the job was able to be completed within a few days like we needed. It didn't cost us the arm and a leg we thought it would even though it was quite a bit of work, and it was done well. Now the house is inspection ready. I would definitely hire again.

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.

This is a great team who really will travel to you. Had some landscaping that needed to be brought back to life and boy did they do a great job. The price was more than fair for the work that was done and I have to it I couldn't believe how far they drove to take on my project. If you are looking for affordable landscaping just give Lena and Ruth a call.

Jason and company are almost halfway through renovating my 4 bedroom, 3 bath condo that experienced massive flood damage. Work completed or nearly completed include ceiling drywall replacement, scraping, texturing, and painting. J&N has also replaced a section of damaged subfloor near a shower, installed kitchen drywall, and replaced the shutoff valves under the sink. Reasons I would recommend this company include: 1. Integrity - Jason shows up when he says he will and does what he says he is going to. If something goes wrong, he makes it right. 2. Proactive communication - he sends updates on progress, is very knowledgeable, accessible, and is a straight shooter. 3. Reasonable prices - Comparing to other estimates received, J&N's prices are fair. So far I am pleased at the quality and timeliness of the work.

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. 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.
