    Fence Painting
    Verified Review
    I've asked multiple times to communicate through Thumbtack or by text as I am at work during business hours and can't make calls. Every response has been for me to call him, without responding to what I'm saying. As a result, I have wasted weeks on something I wanted to get done as quickly as possible. I'm extremely disappointed in the lack of customer service.
    Samuel S. May 4, 2017

    Emily, I know you wanted to commute through thumbtack but I need to either meet a future customer in person or talk on the phone with them. I get fake emails about people requesting work all the time and that is why I do business that way. I don't appreciate the bad review when no deal was even set up.

    Drywall Installation and Hanging
    Verified Review
    We had Sam do dry wall installation, texture & painting for our house. The area he was supposed to do was relatively small ~1.5ft wall. We had a previous contractor working on the project but couldn't complete and then Sam offered to do the job. That was our experience: 1. The project took more than a week. Seriously, what was supposed to be a 2-3 days of work ended up more than double the time. 2. Prep work: None! . No precautions to keep the area he is working on clean. We had a remodel going in the whole house beforehand and despite all the sanding, wall demolition.. etc, the house was still clean till Sam came. Just for the dry wall, all the house was covered in dust and all the brand new flooring turned white. 3. There were 8 rounded corners (around a couple of posts) Sam insisted on tapping them by hand instead of using corner pieces.. I let him do that but after wasting 3 days sanding, re-patching.. etc. it became very evident the results won't be satisfactory and I had him redo all of them using corner pieces... 4. The end project: We are not satisfied at all with the final product. You can clearly see around the area where Sam installed the new dry wall (esp the ceiling part), walls are full of bumps and poor texture in many places but we were too tired of how long the project took that we decide to go with that and get someone to fix it later. (what a waste of money!) Overall, we felt that Sam didn't have enough experience with dry walls/similar project so we would not recommend him for anything similar.
    Samuel S. May 4, 2017

    Haytham, I'm sorry you had a bad experience with me. Drywall takes 3-4 days and I told you that from the beginning. The reason why the job took double the time is because you insisted for the rounded guards to be install after all the corners were complete. I showed you with a 3 foot level that some spots on the corners were off no more than 1 cm off and you still insisted for me to install the round corners. Not trying to cause a dispute, I installed the corner guards for no extra charge. After they were installed I was rushed to finish a project that could not be rushed (patches of mud were not dried two times I returned). Prep work: Prep work was done but could of been better. When this was brought to my attention and we had a conversation in regards of the cleanup you declined that I help clean up and stated that the cleaners were coming. Cardboard was laid down and plastic was on the ground each day. One day a plastic wall was not set up and drywall dust did spread throughout the downstairs of the house. All in all from day one, things did not seem like it would be a good working relationship. You would complain about minor things with the wall while I was working. That is the reason why I believe the previous contractor left before the job was complete. If you would of let me complete this job without changing the process it would of been done in 5 days with no complaints. I was not happy with the finish product as well but we both came to a understanding that its been to long and you would finish up the minor tasks left to be done. I thought that was a positive agreement due to the circumstances of the project.

    Repair Leaking Roof and Deck, Remodeling, Lighting, Odd-Jobs
    Worked on Ceiling, and Deck over the ceiling, to find and fix a roof leak, then replaced ceiling drywall. Excellent work. They put a they also did Recessed Can Lighting and installed a fan and set of track lights. Excellent work. Also did some odd repair jobs on a Shower Stall (leaking - fixed), and a lot of Deck-work (replacing waterlogged panels and replacing fence work and boards, etc). All together very good work, very clean and polite and professional. Young guys with lots of energy and creative thinking. Better at contracting work than the odd jobs. Being locals to the Eastside, they know where all the resources are, and of course excellent communication skills. Highly recommend.

    Sam was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish! He responded very quickly after I sent out my bid, and was very responsive via email, text or phone. He came out to see the property shortly after we first talked on the phone, gave me a very reasonable estimate, and followed through on the project in expedient fashion. He was communicative throughout the process, and always did everything he promised to do -- even though it meant coming back one extra time to lay some extra sod because there was some miscommunication between him and I about how much grass we wanted him to lay right behind the area in our front yard that we had him pave (it used to be all dirt and grass). The project was completed to my satisfaction, our new paved parking spot and grassy area look great, and it all got done within two weeks of the date I posted the request for proposals on Thumbtack. I would highly recommend Sam to anyone looking for a landscaper in the greater Seattle area.

    I had a sleeper couch I needed moved. There's a bit of difference in pricing with a sleeper because the mattress makes it non donatable so the price changes from the original quote. Sam explained in good detail why it would be different and exactly what his costs would be. I liked that a lot and the new price was very reasonable. Sam was also a really great, very kind guy who had no problem helping me lug that heavy beast from the second floor to his truck. Outstanding service and a hell of a nprofessional.

    Sam was 2 hours late for his appointment with me which cut into my work schedule and was extremely stressful for me. He had been informed of my requirements in advance. Because of this, he was unable to finish the job. He did not show up for the next scheduled appointment to finish because he forgot. Another appointment was cancelled the morning of, so I decided not to pursue getting the project finished. The work he did accomplish was fine although the price was much higher than the bid of $30 per hour. He has the potential to do good work if he can be punctual, reliable, and follow through.
