Stephen's work of installing a heavy wood door with custom trim and ironwork into a old home was fantastic. He was friendly, asked for my preferences as he worked, and did a great job.

Quality Flooring-and-More was not only professional they were very accommodating. Dry-rot was discovered and had to be addressed before the floor could be refinished. This caused scheduling issues for them and their crew made themselves available after normal business hours in order to finish our job and the other scheduled jobs. The finished floor looks fantastic! Their knowledge of wood species and artistic mix of old and new resulted in a nearly invisible transition between the original floor boards and replacement floor boards. We only wish we could have the crew work on our next home on the East Coast!

Jeff did a fantastic job rebuilding two wood decks and replacing several water damaged boards and siding on our mobile home. When additional work was required, he was always careful to explain what he found and how it should be fixed it before he moved ahead. He took great care to not only fix the existing damage, but make the repairs in a way to avoid potential damage in the future. I cannot recommend Jeff enough.

Michael Hedgecock is a true professional. My wife and I just purchased a new home and the roof needed to be replaced. I put a request out on Thumbtack and Michael was the only one that actually read and replied to the bid speedily and seemed to answer my questions clearly. He showed up bright and early, kept us updated and has even offered a follow up just to check in. He's a winner. I'd have him back anytime.

I hired Derek to perform a remodel to open up a closet area and frame a new door way to my garage and then wall off the existing door way to my garage. Derek and his team did an amazing job creating the new entrance, closing off the old one, finishing the drywall and making it ready to paint. The quality of the work was excellent and during the work they would always put floor paper down and plastic coverings surrounding the work area in order to keep my house as clean as possible. Derek also went out of his way to make sure I got the proper finishing trim that matched the existing trim in my house. Derek and his team was always very courteous, and Derek is a perfectionist, always making minor corrections and taking an extra effort to make sure things looked just right and making sure my wife and I were fully satisfied with the work. I would certainly hire Derek again for another project.

I called Bryan to finish a fence installation that was started by some handyman I hired from Craigslist (BIG MISTAKE). Bryan was fast, efficient and a pleasure with whom to work. I ended up hiring him for a complete REMODEL of my home, from floor to ceiling. Bryan was, by far, the most economical and professional contractor I've worked with here in the Northwest. His work is of a very high quality and he is a perfectionist. Nothing was left undone, or halfway done. Each project he completed was done right the first time. He is a very hard worker, and cleans up after himself. I plan on doing another remodel on a different home and I am hiring Bryan, without hesitation. Rest assured, your work will get done in the time he states and will be done with an exceptional eye to detail. I really could not recommend him more highly; truly, best business relationship I've experienced in Olympia.

Lawrence saved us after a negative experience with another architect! We are adding an attached garage with a room over the top, two upstairs bathrooms, new kitchen, raising the roof and adding a dormer to augment our view, and taking out the interior chimney to open up the stair case . . . on a Tudor house that was built in 1928--not an easy project. The plans are creative and lovely, and we had no problem getting a building permit. Lawrence is prompt, patient, and really listens. Will post photos of the finished remodel when we're done.

    After buying a new construction house worth almost 1mill which he built. I've used him to do any modifications to that home as he was the original builder. His attention to detail and precision makes everything stand out as quality! Custom Fence, wrap around deck new french doors new roof overhang, indoor outdoor fireplace; all performed meticulously. Of course when it came time to remodel a rental house he was my only choice. Again, after ten years now, nothing has changed, still performing perfection. My modest rental home is getting the same treatment as a million dollar home. He even used the same tile guy and the same painter who do amazing jobs. They all seem so loyal to want to work for Glenn. All I can say quality seeks out quality and I can't recommend Wharton Construction enough!.......Paul T

    Samuel arrived and assessed and fixed my issue with a door hinge in no-time at all. I was so appreciative of his consulting work he did for me on another door issue too. I would recommend blizzard Custom Exteriors and Interiors highly.

He works will with industry professionals, government technicians and clients. Our home is a better SFR due to his exceptional skills and extensive construction knowledge.

    We have worked with Chris off and on for years doing various projects for our rental properties and home I live in now. I have had him remodel kitchens, bathrooms, outside work which has included additions, fences, decks, rebuilding my garage, repaving my driveway, building a retaining wall, installing windows, doors, floors, fans, waterproofing, you name it he's done it for me including foreclosed properties. What I really like about this company is the rates are reasonable, hes a great listener and communicator and his wife helps him run the day to day operations with emails and office work so he's not so overworked. I have hired contractors in the past that have came in demoed the job, demand more money or they disappear. Chris has either asked for a deposit and paid as work has progressed, paid hourly and than paid weekly, or what have you. Even if something did interfere with being on that job daily, he always has told me via email or called and he always keeps me updated on how things are going or if there were extra costs involved, we were notified immediately. I think most contractors try to do the work, the estimates, get materials, do the office work by themselves and i think it gets them into trouble not being able to be at three places at once so they do really well. The only complaint i have is he might show up late once in awhile but I know running a company isn't easy, I am self employed as well. I highly recommend him and his company to do remodeling and repairs. Very professional and they fix any work that has been paid for or charged for free. I have never had an issue getting him back out here to fix something that I wanted done differently or organically didn't stay put. I am avaliable for personal referrals.

    John designed and engineered our new home build. We would have loved to have had him build it as well but we were a little too far for him. One thing I can say is that John gave me a great education about what we were in for in getting this house built. He was spot on with how the process was going to go and the pitfalls to avoid. This project was the hardest thing I'd ever done. We emailed John with questions as we were constructing and he was always happy to give his opinions and input. The house is finally complete and we love every square foot of it. We ended up paying only $2800 for the plans and engineering. We had an architect quote us $6000 minimum. I can't say enough great things about All Phases Building.

    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.
