Thank you and your husband.Please txt me at 2108527419..When your ready for other items....Thank you
Excellent experience with this professional. Nice guy (which is always a plus), but what really got me was how obsessive he was about providing a great-quality result. Had him install a fireplace mantel and work on a pesky door moulding which needed cutting to fit a security doorbell. He arrived on time, did the work quickly and charged a very reasonable fee. We will be glad to work with Cris again.Dec 16, 2018Verified
Cris did a great job! I appreciated his flexibility with our schedule and we are very pleased with his work. Would recommend!Nov 9, 2018Verified
Went with Chris at first as he gave me a good quote. He agreed to come out that day but called and had to reschedule, I agreed to the next day. Then the next day was a no show. He texted saying he was still at another job and would be 30 minutes late. 40 minutes later I called and he said he was still across town and would be late. I canceled.Jul 6, 2018VerifiedAlamo City Carpentry and Handyman service's reply
Told this potential customer that I would be done in 30 min with morning job Then I would be on my way. She mistakenly took this as saying I would be 30 late without considering rush hour traffic..She called me while I was on my way and 15 minutes away from her home. As per her request ,I cancelled the job..Then she rehires me 10 minutes later only to leave me a bad review.I strive hard to have a 5 star review and to service my customers .Thank you for your interest in my services.....Alamo City Carpentry. !
Had, Mr. Chris Melchor resize some wooden bar stools. He was prompt. Very professional. Did a very good job. I am a Disabled Veteran He assured to put the proper tips on the bottom to insure I would not slip and fall. Honestly I had not even given that a thought. I Highly Recommend Mr. Chris Melchor. Again Thank Sir.Aug 5, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I dont have a standard price system . Most of the time I try to get as much detail before a price is given. As contractors we take time ,fuel , material, man power and expierence into consideration into giving a price .But I always give an honest price and always try to save my customers money when I can .
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always try to meet them at no cost first so that they can see and feel whos gonna be in allowed in their home. Then I go over the project with the customer and see what they would like. I then will get details and maybe take photos of the project area. If its a basic or small project ,I maybe could give a quote on site. For the most part ,I usually go over the details overnight and call or email customers a quote the following day
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Dont always hire by low price . Try to meet the person first . So that you know whos being allowed in your home . Dont hire people that claim to know it all and who pressure you . Get to know the person first and trust your gut feeling . Hire someone who carry themselves properly, dresses decently and with a good attitude
