Brian completed the assembly and installation of IKEA kitchen cabinets, sink plumbing, faucet, dishwasher, and cabinet lighting. He was very thorough and did an amazing job. He went above and beyond to ensure that our kitchen design was implemented to our specifications. He is an excellent contractor and I would highly recommend him. I would certainly use him again for future remodeling projects. We love our kitchen. Thank You Brian for the great work.

La Rue was knowledgeable and quickly repaired the problem. He was able to give an estimate and repair the closet in the same day! He also gave suggestions on how to repair other problems in the home. I would refer and hire Martin construction for future jobs.

Peter did an outstanding job renovating our bathroom. He is skilled and knowledgeable in all areas of the job: electrical, plumbing, framing and construction, tiling, etc. Peter tends to work meticulously, checking and double-checking measurements, reviewing construction codes when something new comes up, choosing good quality materials, and making sure all aspects of the design are implemented to a T. I find myself sounding like a commercial here, but Peter really was exactly what we wanted. He bid a good price, and was willing to accommodate our needs. When he recognized options, he pointed them out, described them in detail, and included us directly in the planning and design process. We had a good idea of what we wanted going into the project, and with Peter’s intuition, excellent communication, and detailed workmanship, the bathroom evolved into a masterpiece. If there was one disadvantage, it was the delayed completion; but in light of all of the design changes that took place while the job was already underway, and which allowed us to get exactly the bathroom we were hoping for, this was no disadvantage for us.

I have heard 'bounce is code'. Which means a floor may feel solid and be built to code but still moves as it is walked on. I have been in several of ABC's custom built homes and NEVER felt the floors flex. Even after they are 20 years old. It is great to know a well built home can be purchased from the guy who actually built it.

Well, guess it's time to share my soon to be not so secret contractor, Rob Tracy. As the owner of several 1800's era buildings I bought on the edge of their death, I have yet to find an issue he can not solve nor a skill he does not possess. From framing to finish, new construction to restoration, he runs every job with creativity and professionalism in a timely fashion with great attention to detail, while staying on budget and time frame. Been involved in construction industry for decades, and can honestly say it is not often you find a contractor with his mad skills and awesome work ethic. See a few before and after pictures below, and feel free to contact me for more pics, or with any questions.

My husband and I have a very old house (over 100 years old) with plaster walls that have 50-year old wallpaper on them. The house has beautiful oak woodwork throughout, and he has been very respectful not to damage it while getting down the wallpaper and painting the walls. He even took down our railings, cleaned and varnished them so they look like new! He's quick but mindful, ensuring a quality job. David is always willing to listen to what you have to say about the job at hand; he consults with great kindness, while offering suggestions and helping you to see what is possible beyond the task at hand, and ultimately does what is asked of him. He is easy to work with and has a great attitude! I would hire him again to do anything related to painting and/or construction.

Ed and his team did an amazing job building out our cement basement into a completely finished area including large bedroom, bath, family room and kitchenette area! Their bid and actual figures for the 1200 sq ft build-out were spot on and they exceed their own timeline, start to finish in 29 days! Ed is a very trustworthy person and he was on site almost every day which was great to see, and if he wasn't on site then we communicated by phone. You don't see or hear about experiences like this too often these days but for new Wisconsinites like our family from the west coast we couldn't have picked a better person, leader, and contractor to work with! I have recommended and referred Ed and his team to several of my neighbors as well as co-workers which says a lot. He's upfront, honest and will tell you whether or not something is possible to accommodate which is exactly what I expected, of which he delivered. All said and done, an awesome job was completed in a timely manner with cost almost to a tee. How can you go wrong in a situation like this? The answer is that you can't. Thank you and your team, Ed, for a GREAT job! Justin and family

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.
