Stan did a fence repair job for us & from start to finish the job went extremely well. His pricing is very competitive & he does quality work.Aug 1, 2017Verified
Stan did a great job on our fence and he came right in on his estimate. We had about 205 feet to replace and build. He was on time every day and his quality of work was excellent. It's hard to find a great contractor who is affordable and does the work they say they will do. I highly recommend him.Jun 13, 2017Verified
Stan did an amazing job with our fence! He came immediately to take measurements and emailed us a quote the next day. He started and finished his job when he said he would and the fence looks amazing! He was nice enough to also fix our door that wasn't opening without us having to ask him. Will definitely be hiring him again for any other job we need done! Thanks Stan!Jan 28, 2017Verified
We randomly (and luckily) met Stan through Thumbtack. He helped correct a progressively leaning garage that had been worrying us for 6 years. Two other contractors had given us the impression that the problem was too expensive to correct (perhaps too cost prohibitive due to the work they envisioned necessary) or generally too daunting a job to be interested in. It was the last stab at either fixing or tearing the structure down. Stan brought a level of professionalism that was refreshing. His project proposal and execution of work demonstrated that he clearly knew his stuff about framing and construction. Since we were not sure of the future of the structure (since we might remodel further) he also helped us keep within our budget for the scope of this project. We were provided with a description of the work to be carried out and accurate cost estimates. Stan also secured the fence after straightening the lean (there was a gap left where the garage was previously leaning); in the end we also had him frame in a small window into the structure. He worked independently and very efficiently to get the job done. We would not hesitate to recommend him or consider him for other projects.Jan 18, 2017Verified
Stan did excellent work on building our brand new deck. Communication was great and that is something we really appreciated when working with Stan. The deck looks beautiful and we could not ask for better luck when finding Stan on Thumbtack. Recommend 100%.Mar 17, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do not do by the hour. As stated above, I prefer to schedule to look at the project and then quote it. You can then say yes or no and if its yes we will then schedule a day for the work to be completed. I never ask for a deposit as I feel I dont need to be paid until the customer is satisfied.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like scheduling with the customer to look at a project, no matter what the size of it is. I then get an e-mail address of which I will send a written quote that will be a firm quote. No additional charges after the job has started unless it is of a certain situation for example like needing to open up a wall to find out if there's additional work to be done , however that would be written into the quote. There are some projects with unforeseen issues. I never go forward with out showing the customer the issues and giving additional costs quotes or recommendations.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have over 35 years of experience. Was a licensed builder and home remodeler in Wisconsin until I moved here. I have decided to downsize and have less overhead since moving here a year ago. I made the move mostly to be closer to my Daughter and brand new Grand Daughter! I am not licensed as of yet in California but I am working on it.
