Installed a large new vanity with top and hooked up the plumbing to it. Sounds like a simple job but for one the drain location in the wall was in a very awkward position in relation to the sink and Glenn used all of the right fittings to make a strong and lifelong connection. Second the vanity top was about 1" too large for the opening meaning he had to remove a cabinet in order to get it in place. A lot of extra work was put in and I didnt hear one complaint. I have flipped multiple houses and worked in commercial construction for 10 years and he has been one of the easiest people to deal with, especially if something unexpected comes up (which it always will). Thanks Glenn!

Got installed recessed lighting in my home theater room and an electric outlet in ceiling for projector. He did an awesome job with very neat finish. I was very happy to see the outcome of the project. His estimations were right on the target and I would definitely call him back on my future projects.

I asked Chris Wilhelm of Compass Home Repair and Renovation to install a utility sink in my basement. I had recently done a renovation restoring a bedroom, bathroom suite along with adding a washer and dryer for a a tenant. I didn't think about a utility sink, as part of that renovation which is a useful thing to have for larger and dirty clean-up projects. I only had a sink. There was no drain, no spigot or faucets. He dropped by my home to get an idea of the job's specifics and returned a week later. Chris installed the sink with a few hiccups along the way (such as trying to figure out how to turn off the water--not his fault--the recent plumbing was unlike anything he'd ever encountered. The sink works beautifully, and he integrated it next to the washer/dryer without taking up any additional space in this storage area. Best of all is the hose attachment, which insures that hard-to-reach spaces can be reached without effort. I've already hired Chris to do some restoration of my porch steps, which is due to be done this Saturday.

Just started projects on tiling bathroom floor and reinforcing deck railing and everything is going great so far. Bid was reasonable and the have shown up on time and ready to work. They are hard workers and very personable and respectful. I will post another review to let you know how it all turned out on completion. So far I would recommend you get them to come give an estimate for any project you may have. Mrs. Herman

This review has been a long time coming. My wife and I bought a dump and slowly remodeled it over a few years. Then, I found out I got my dream job in Austin TX, and we had to sell our house FAST. Only one tiny problem - it wasn't finished! That's where Eric with Fresh Painting and Remodeling came in. Eric gave me a very reasonable estimate for installation/painting of baseboards throughout the entire house and installation/painting of a few interior doors. I'm far too exhausted to post pics, but suffice it to say the baseboards looked fantastic. Our house had 5 offers, all above asking price, within 60 hours of going on the market. I would say others thought Eric's work was good to say the least. In addition to fantastic finish carpentry work at a very reasonable price, Eric was especially courteous considering our 2 month old baby. Several times he went out of his way to help. For example, he completely finished the baseboards in our master bedroom first so that we would have a place to let our baby sleep. At one point, he even took 3 trips to the garage to recharge his air compressor just so that he wouldn't wake up the baby. I can only hope I find a contractor in TX that I trust this much to do good work at a reasonable price!

Best price out of four local contractors who submitted estimates, efficient crew, and appreciated ethics. Makaia was the only one of the four who recommended support rebar in our exposed aggregate patio extension and included it in his estimate. We chose his company for the job and are glad we did.

I was having the worst time after hiring a contractor who always had an excuse for not showing up. I had tried Thumbtack before with no contractor responses. But, I was at my wits end, so I tried it again. Thank goodness I did, because that’s when Irakli came into our lives! He was prompt with his response, professional when he came to give me an estimate and had the work done in two days... which had been in progress for 3 months! We are moving to a different home now and D&I Development will be our go-to for years to come!

I really appreciate Duane's work on this project. It was a smaller job but an important one to get done before the rains began. He retrimmed the outside of two weather-facing windows. He used quality materials and was prompt in his estimate and his work. The work site was left very clean. He was very communicative as to the status of the project and when he would return to finish (painting). His fees are very fair--in fact, FAR less than the other two quotes I received through Thumbtack. Because of his quality work on this project, I've already given him another small project to do next month!

I would highly recommend Olvera Construction. They are responsive, willing to help deliver products, and finished the projects in a timely manner, all while making sure the design was how we wanted it. They were also clean and careful with not damaging anything. We will continue to use Olvera for our future home renovations.

Serge was absolutely fabulous to work with. He provided options, made recommendations, and stuck to his bid on a complete deck replacement. Quality, value, and client satisfaction were important to them. They demonstrated this through the entire process and it was greatly appreciated. I am doing a quick review on additional home improvement projects needed to see what Serge and his team can do for me next!

Three Knights was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend them to anybody that needs a general contractor. They replaced my gate and reinforced it heavily so that hopefully the same problems won't happen again. They provided an estimate the same day requested and completed the job the following day - how's that for quick! They did not have the lowest bid - in fact they were the highest (only by about 15 dollars or so), but I chose them because they thoroughly explained the issues to me and how they would address each one. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and will use them for any work I might need in the future. To Three Knights: Thank you so much for your prompt and hard work - it is greatly appreciated.

We got a couple quotes and Jose gave an extremely competitive price and estimated less than the time frame of other contractors. In the end, he spent 3 days on the project, which was skim coating the ceilings in three rooms. He took great care with our property and furniture, and he checked in with us throughout the project to make sure we were satisfied. Overall, Jose was communicative, honest, and skilled. We would recommend him.

We had a small job (with a 14' wall) that we could not paint. We received an estimate within 24 hours of submitting a request via Thumbtack. Joran started/finished the job on the same day. Work was well done and he even cleaned a window that we couldn't reach. We will definitely use him again.

Conrad construction fixed my leaky roof and built a new back porch. After bidding the job, they came out the next business day on time and were finished in two. The workers were very pleasant and easy to have around.I am happy with the quality of work that they did and would not hesitate to call them the next time I need help.

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.
