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.

Chris is awesome. I hired him to replace two ceiling fans with two new chandeliers. He showed up early, finished early, charged less than estimate due to how quickly he got it done. Will definitely consider him for bigger projects, like finishing off a bathroom in our basement. Would recommend him to others.

Bill did a job for our banquet hall-installing new moldings for a large dance floor. He did a great job, finished the project on time for the estimated price and was overall very professional. Outstanding job!

I am very pleased with working with LCM Contracting. Matt was very responsive throughout the entire process which I am so appreciative of. He was quick to come over and review the project and send me an estimate as well as answer questions. This project was for replacing outside porch posts and he kept me updated on when they would come as the weather was not cooperating (heavy rain for several days). They were prompt on arriving when they said they would and got the new posts installed and I’m thrilled knowing an old 100+ year old side porch has new steady support! I would use LCM again and appreciate their timely communication and thoroughness on the job.

Lyndell did an outstanding job on our powder room. He came to our home to give us an estimate. He told what exactly needed to be done. He showed me the area needing repairs. Other companies expanded the area of repair in their estimates. He worked tirelessly on the project. The powder room looks like no work was ever done. Excellent. I highly recommend Lyndell's Home Remodel and Repair.

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.

Josh did a great job remodeling my entire bathroom, tile, shower, floor, trim, paint, vanity, lighting. Bathroom looks great, affordable quote with excellent communication/project management and a very fair price. I would recommend for bathroom tiling and paint, etc. I actually did all the demo, and it got too difficult for me to continue, Josh came in and knocked the project out the park.

Fernando was great and a pleasure to work with. Any request that my wife or I threw at him was not an issue. He is so dedicated to his customers on my project he lost couple days due to weather and an unforseen problem with a place to take the dirt. He came on Easter Sunday to finish the job in the time frame he gave me. I would recommend him to any one. I have already given him a heads up that I will be using him to do my driveway in a year or two to match my gorgeous new patio.

After 8 quotes for a fence from local fence companies and contractors, I came across thumbtack and figured I would give it a try. Almost immediately entering my info Joe reached out. I was immediately impressed with his professionalism and timely quote. He actually included the exact material quote showing exactly what materials along with how much everything cost. He was the clear winner. I was pretty specific with the timeframe, and he got it done. He stayed on budget as promised, and was great with communication throughout the project. Joe completed a 90+ foot privacy fence with a beautiful gate that crosses my driveway. I recommend Joe Mahas and Native Remodels without hesitation.

I was very impressed with this company! I had different work done on both my homes over the last couple years. The first home had damage from a hail storm and I was required to get 3 estimates. I contacted Buckshot for an estimate and they came out that day. They were so helpful in working with my insurance company and getting several things covered that the inspector initially missed. They are very knowledgeable about claims and working with insurance. The insurance company took a while to settle the claim but my rep kept me updated on everything. They completed the roof and did some siding work, which turned out great!! On my second home I had some missing siding. They came out right away and were able to match the siding color even though the home is 13 years old. They took extra time to go through several sample colors and work with me on making sure I was satisfied with everything. The work was done right away and looks amazing! I would never use another company to do any exterior work on my home!!

Rick came a distance to give us an estimate and was able to tell us on the spot. He even gave us tips for some other house projects that we are doing on our own. His estimate and timeline was the most reasonable of all bids we got. He was able to start the project within two weeks. When he ran into an unanticipated electrical problem he spent the afternoon calling electricians until one could immediately come out. Everything was done in the time frame we were given. We are so happy with the end result. Would hire again.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

What is a contractor license number?

A contractor license number is proof that your contractor is operating their business legally, that they have the proper documentation required by your state or region, and that they are competent in their area of work (electrical, plumbing, construction, etc.). Licensed contractors should freely advertise their contractor license number. If not, you can request it before considering them for hire. You can also research your contractor using their license number. The database for your state will indicate the field they are licensed to work in; whether they are up to date on insurance, workers’ compensation and bonds; and whether they have any consumer complaints issued against them. If the licensed contractor you are hiring does not have employees, they are not required to carry workers’ compensation. Each state or region will have their own database for licenses, such as the State of Oregon Construction Contractors Board. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.
