Dennis replaced the dead fan/light in the bathroom of our condo on QA. It's a rental for us now and we live out of state so finding someone to do this type of smaller project work is challenging, to find someone who does it well and to completion is more so. Dennis ended up making 3 trips to complete the project including patching the hole when the new model ended up being 'just a little bit' smaller than the 1978 version that was replaced. He was friendly and communicative and worked directly with my tenants to scheudle times that worked for them. Thank you Dennis.

Good hard working employees, Excellent suggestions by Jorge that made a big difference in the outcome of the project. He knows his stuff but needs to remember to give estimates of added work so there are no surprises. I should have asked.

My contractor was great! He got in touch with me, came out and gave a free estimate, and did the job all within a few days of starting the process with pro.com. He provided me with a pre-estimate, which he came out very close to. He gave me the option of economical or fancy work (or really anywhere on the spectrum). I wanted economical, I care about function, not aesthetic, and he was able to do the job for much less than I was expecting and it still ended up looking great. I would absolutely use pro.com again, as well as the contractor they found for me.

I chose them because of the reviews and amount of business he’s actually done. I scheduled an appointment only to found out he actually worked on other houses in my new construction community. He came on Tuesday with one other worker and they completed the job within 4 days which was amazing Considering the work to be done. I gave him some ideas on what I was looking for and they did exactly what I asked for. I love my yard and appreciate The quick work and attention to detail. I had to work all week so it was nice to come home and see the significant progress each day. If you want quality work for a fair price look no further!

It's hard to choose a painter. I met with three companies and chose to go with Hurtado Painting based on their reviews on here, their price, the fact that they would be sending a team of four painters, and based on the way that Leno presented himself when he came to give me a quote to paint the interior of my one bedroom loft condo. Leno gave me the quote and estimated that the job would take 3 days. The following Monday Leno and his crew arrived and started. On Wednesday evening they finished. I met them at 6:00 expecting to pay them and see them leave, but they stayed two hours longer making my place look incredible. Leno kept fixing imperfections that I couldn't even see. It's clear that he has a high quality bar for his team.

Very clear about the price beforehand, showed up the same day (evening) I requested the work, and did a good job covering some holes in the siding made by woodpeckers. They arrived a bit later than estimated, but not enough to warrant docking a star. I would hire them again.

Cedo was great to work with and did an excellent job tiling floors, building / tiling a custom shower and adding old bricks masonry onto an interior wall. He is extremely professional and goes to great lengths to make sure the work is as perfect as possible given the construction site conditions. My remodel turned out to be challenging because of the walls not being straight and the brick wall being very time consuming, but he was very gracious about any unforeseen obstacles and worked extremely hard to get the project finished. He was a very valuable thought partner each step of the way, and I ended up extending the original scope to include installing a backsplash, doors and trim. The end result looks spectacular and i would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Josh and his crew at JWBuilders did exceptional work on our new Timbertech deck! From working through all of our ideas to the deck plans, the permit, and quality construction of the deck-- JMBuilders covered it all. They were reliable, knowledgeable and made the process seamless. We love our deck, but we are especially impressed by the time and thought that Josh puts into his work. We look forward to working with this company on the next phases of our backyard landscape!

It was very easy to make an appointment with Diamond Tile. Brian was quick and responsiveness, answered all my questions and was able to provide an estimate to drill a hole in my Quartz countertop. He arrived on time and took his time to measure for the best placement for my Instant Hot system by insinkerator. I was very happy with the work he performed.

I had a front door and screen installed and Craftsman Construction did an excellent job. They were so very professional and efficient, in addition to being very nice. I was so impressed that I have two other tasks that I hope to have started in January. And they cleaned up after themselves, wow! Craftsman Construction is definitely who you want to take care of any construction projects.

Brian and his crew did an outstanding job on my deck project. It was a somewhat complex job as it had two levels and the second level partially surrounded a pool area. The Ronin team worked with me and found the best solutions to a variety of portions of the decks that needed to be completely rebuilt and some that repairs could accomplish. Brian worked with me and kept the project on track and on budget so we could enjoy our decks as soon as the summer weather started. I would highly recommend Ronin Construction and would work with them again anytime.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.  

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 much does a project manager charge per hour?

You may choose to hire a construction project manager for your residential or commercial project. For the hands-on homeowner who wants to be involved in home construction but isn’t comfortable hiring subcontractors, a construction project manager can oversee these relationships and supervise labor. Typically, construction project managers charge a fee that is a flat percentage of the total construction project cost. This may range from 10 percent to 15 percent, depending on the company and the services they provide. This means a $30,000 home remodel project would have a construction project management fee of $3,000-$4,500. Hiring a construction project manager generally precludes the markup on subcontractor labor charged by a general contractor. The drawback to this choice is that, unlike a general contractor, the construction project manager won’t be financially responsible for the work of the subcontractors. For larger projects, you may hire a construction project manager who will also hire a general contractor. This provides the benefits of the general contractor along with the management services of the project manager, who will be on board from the beginning. The construction project manager will be involved in the design phase and work with the architects and the building crew, facilitating a smoother overall process.

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.
