Matt did a great job on building a custom pergola with very short notice. He was easy to work with, and I’ve already received several compliments from people about how nice it looks. Would recommend him, and would use his services again.

Amir picked up a messy, half finished design job which the previous architect had left un-done. He reviewed and finished this conversion of a store front to an apartment. It was challenging in that the commercial zoning regulations had to be addressed, state of Wisconsin variances obtained and more. This is a 1920s building and there were complex code and fire regulations that had to be resolved in a economical fashion. We also had issues finding builders which extended the job out for over a year - Amir stuck with us and is seeing the project through. We are very satisfied with his work.

He didn't clear a couple of bricks that I told him about so he damaged his machine. I guess I could have tried to clear them, but I was overseeing two other workers that day.

The company Milwaukee Metro Painting did remodeling in my condo last summer. I am very much satisfied with the result of this project. I will contract with Milwaukee Metro Painting, LLC when it will be needed and advise this company to my friends. Anna

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.

Jon did an outstanding job building our deck last summer. His quote was competitive with other builders, but he was the only contractor to include Grade A lumber in the bid. Jon was also very helpful in guiding us in the permit process. During the build process, he worked on our project full time every day until completion. His work is meticulous and we wouldn't hesitate to hire him for any future building projects.

I hired anton to build a deck he showed up every day at 7 am and worked until way past 8 or 9. He got the job done very fast all by himself and he did a great job and even sealed the deck before he cleaned up. He come back after a bad storm to check the seallant. Anton himself was friendly cool dude. he explains everything and has a level head and resonable prices. Im very happy with is work and recieved many compliments on my deck.

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

We first hired Handy Husbands to repair a faucet and install a new screen door. They were clean, professional, and very friendly, we have since hired them for a few updates and they have always been very helpful. Tim was helpful in finding the most affordable materials to get the results we were looking for.

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.  

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.

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.

What do general contractors charge?

If you’re doing a home remodel, building a new home or embarking on a commercial building project, you’ll hire a general contractor. A general contractor is a professional who is qualified to oversee and execute construction projects. Each construction project is unique; even two duplicate homes built on lots next door to each other could have different construction costs due to factors like different excavation costs when building the foundation. Since each project is unique, many general contractors make bids on potential construction projects. These bids can then break down to a per square foot cost that encompasses the labor of all the workers needed for the job, materials, the scope of work, and any equipment needed. Materials and finishes make a major difference in your cost per square foot. For example, choosing standard kitchen tiles at $3 per square foot will result in a lower total project cost than imported marble tiles that cost $63 per square foot. Where you live will also affect how much general contractors charge, as labor and the cost to do business can cost less in many regions than in high-cost areas like New York or San Francisco. Here are some examples of average costs general contractors typically charge in various regions:

  • Home addition in San Francisco: $250-$270 per square foot.
  • New home construction in Knoxville, Tennessee: $100-$200 per square foot.
  • Kitchen remodel in Tennessee: $40-$80 per square foot, depending on finishes.
  • Bathroom remodel in Vancouver, Washington: $110-$170 per square foot.
