Stephen did a great job hanging a new front door at our home. He was on-time, professional and very experienced in all areas of construction. We have since hired him for other finished carpentry work around our home and are beyond impressed. From the beginning, Stephen set out realistic timelines for the work and has followed through on everything and more. You won't be disappointed!

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!

We wanted a brief consult from an experienced architect on the design of our home and potential options for renovations or additions. Paul came over at a time that was convenient for us (a weekend, no less), did a thorough walkthrough, and gave us sound, focused advice on options and how best to proceed. Highly recommend him.

    Glen did some major home improvements for our newly purchased home that needed some upgrades. He was honest, timely, and true to his word, which in my experience is hard to come by these days. If you want an honest and professional and personal contractor for new home builds or renovation, I highly recommend Glen.

    Mariusz prepares landscape CAD drawings for landscape projects I design. Mariusz is professional, pays attention to detail, is accurate, efficient and responsive. In addition, Mariusz did an excellent job preparing all the CAD architectural drawings for our home that was designed by architect, Brian Peters, AIA. Working with Mariusz is a pleasure and I highly recommend him.

    John designed our house back in August. He saved us so much money we can't say enough. He was almost half of what our architect wanted and he included engineering as well. Everything we needed to get our permit and he is such a great designer too! We have the coolest kitchen around now.

    So far so good.


    I am a freelance Interior Designer who thinks outside the box. I love to recreate, and redefine old or new spaces and make them a place that my client feels at home whether it be residential, commercial, or hospitality. I enjoy refurbishing, and renewing anything old and bringing collective pieces into any design work. Nobody likes a cookie cutter home!

    There is never a job that's too big or too small. I do remodels and additions. I personally have more than 10 years of experience in drywall, 2 to 3 years in steel stud framing, more than a year in interior and exterior painting, and carpet and wood flooring. I am well experienced in numerous other trades. I have been a part of constructing many high-end custom homes and have done some custom creations of my own!

    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.
