Browse these hardscape contractors with great ratings from Thumbtack customers in Alameda.
Cardenas Construction did a fantastic job on our front yard hardscape. They were on time, and finished the job quickly. The quality of the work is excellent. Arisel is a very nice and straightforward person, had many helpful suggestions, and helped us deal with unexpected issues. He is always well dressed, even when he's in his work clothes. I would definitely recommend them for future hardscape projects.
Ralph built a deck and fence for me about a month ago and the work was absolutely great. His prices were very reaonsonable and he did the job in a very short time. By far, one of the easiest and nicest contractors to work with. I would recommend him to anyone as he finished the job on-time and the deck and fence looked great!
After 4 years of drought our landscaping looked pretty bad. We had Valentin come and give us some ideas about converting to a drip watering system and landscaping with more drought resistant plants. Valentin and his landscaping staff came up with some excellent ideas. We approved, they went to work and the finished product is better than ever dreamed. Valentin worked with us every step of the way and was always available to answer questions and give us good ideas.
Matthew Kelly is hardworking and honest. He strives to make the job go as well as possible. After other contractors said no or did not return my calls, he responded quickly on the weekend, and he completed the job in a timely manner. Matthew's operation is lean and responsive. He is pleasant to work with and has my recommendation.
I've literally communicated with or contacted at least five contractors over the past two months to complete this flooring job. Salinas was an answer to prayer! Whereas other sites or contractors told me to wait and/or never got back to me or took others jobs, Vyron responded promptly within an hour when I posted the job on Thumbtack. Vyron and Pablo did excellent work putting down a new subfloor and plywood, then installing an LVP (see photos) and a new toilet (not pictured). Vyron communicated about every step of repair and installation and about every purchase for the job. He takes pride in his work and left the work area clean. I'm so glad that the job is finished and that it was done well.
I am very satisfied with the services. The team is very professional and on time. The price is reasonable. I highly recommend CRC Gardening and Landscaping Service!
Gustavo and his crew are very hard working. They donât chit-chat or waste time. Gustavo is conscientious and very attentive to the homeowners needs. He gets the best price for the materials and his work is exceptional. I will hire them again if Iâm in need of more landscaping work.
I was very glad that I found Milko Young. I am a landlord from Texas and I came to Berkeley to help with my daughter's move-in to a small house. I appreciated someone like Milko who is professional, honest, and easy to work with. He was great and is a true painter and handyman. His work included painting, fixing cracks in the ceiling/walls, installing various household items (ceiling fans, light fixtures), and staining the patio deck. He is also very thorough, he made sure fixtures like the smoke alarms were in working condition. I'm very picky about people who work for me and Milko went beyond my expectations. We are definitely planning to continue to have Milko do more work for us (landscaping & general handyman) in the weeks to follow. Thanks Milko!
Pros: Jasper was prompt in responding, punctual, friendly, and completed the work quickly. I was impressed that he finished this project in one day; whereas other contractors seemed to indicate it was more work and more difficult. I would hire him again. Some areas he can improve: There were a couple of minor areas that were knicked on our kitchen island that I didn't notice until cleaning up. Also, I think he could have done a little better cleaning up the island- wiping down the cabinet fronts that had a light layer of dust (I did this myself). Finally, I gave him a box of stain & top coat that the previous owners left to us. He applied them but I noticed they didn't leave the counter shiny, like the finish we had before he sanded. After Jasper left, my husband realized we were missing the water sealant coat which we had in the garage. So now we are applying this coat ourselves to make the island water- proof and give it the same shine. This isn't totally Jasper's fault since I gave him the supplies but I would have liked if he would have noted that something seemed to be missing or off (or given his recommendations on what he would have stained/sealed it with to make sure the wood stayed water proof.) Overall, I'm happy with the work.
I recently hired AAA Concrete Designs to perform some concrete work, more specifically a paver patio, in an attempt to add value to my home. As a perfectionist, I demand nothing less than complete reliability, punctuality, and above all else, utmost professionalism. The job was completed as promised with no down payment needed whatsoever. I implore any persons that seek brick work, concrete, etc. to hire the steady hand of Mr. Tongilava and his hard working crew. Feel free to email me at email@example.com if you have any further questions regarding AAA Concrete Designs.
I couldn't be more pleased. Pablo submitted a very reasonable quote, started work promptly and worked steadily until the job was completed. I am completely thrilled with the work he did. I cannot recommend this friendly, competent, hardworking professional more highly. I'll definitely ask him again to help with my lawn and garden projects. Really excellent.
I love Eli, Shmuel and the entire team at Lifetime Remodeling. We had an unexpected leak in the master bath that slowly destroyed our kitchen ceiling. They made an assessment, remodeled the bathroom, fixed the kitchen (and put in money saving/beautiful recessed lights), and left us very happy. When we encountered a problem with the plumbing, most other contractors would have taken advantage and hiked the price. But, they were so professional and everything was still finished on time and in-budget. (My friends tell me that never happens. So now I refer all of them to Lifetime.)
I ended up interviewing 10 different contractors for our exterior siding job because there were so many different opinions on what needed to be done and how best to do it. I'm so glad that we ended up going with Kris and his team. Great communication throughout, incredibly high quality of workmanship on a very difficult job (it is an older house that hasn't been maintained very well before we bought it). I really appreciated Kris' attention to detail and letting us know what was going on throughout the 6 week long process. Also did a great job working with the county inspector, which is never an easy process. These guys are pros - won't hesitate to hire them again for our next house project!
We chose David and his team to tear down and replace a tired old deck, but with a new footprint. Work Quality: This was not just great workmanship, but actual craftsmanship. The detail and precision of the joints, cuts, spacing of the boards was meticulous. The fact that there are no seams, no uneven gaps, and no screws visible on top of the deck surface is amazing. Professionalism: The crew showed up each day on time! They wore company logo'd shirts and jackets and had company vehicles. Each day the sawdust and construction mess was cleaned up by sweeping or blowing, all tools were stacked and out of the way, wood was piled up neatly so the area looked clean and tidy each night before they left for the day. There were no remnants of lunch litter or water bottles scattered in the yard. They even had their own portable restroom delivered so there were no muddy boots tracking into our bathroom. That was something that indicates a concern for the workmen by the company. Happy workers are good workers. Responsiveness: We are able to discuss any questions or issues that came up during construction with the team. Since we were installing lighting in the stairs, there were some logistics involved and they were more than happy to help or provide info. Between the ability to contact David by email or text at any time, I never felt that I was out of the loop on any aspect of the project. One thing that was especially impressive was that the first rain day I received an early morning email confirming that the team would not be on site that day. That NEVER happens! I assumed they wouldn't be working but to get actual notification before the start of the day was above and beyond and very much appreciated. Value: I can say in complete honesty that this is the first project ever that we felt we got more than what we paid. The price was very fair to begin with, but the additional touches exceeded any expectations. For instance, the lack of surface screws was not something we requested or even thought to ask about. It could have been an option that was brought up as an additional charge, but it was just done, included in the original pricing. Extremely pleasant surprise! Punctuality: On time each day, and worked full days. If there was a rain day expected, it was communicated. In summary, this is a company that we can wholeheartedly recommend without any reservation. Estate Scapes will be our go-to for all things landscape or hardscape related. The entire experience was excellent. I will update with photos shortly.
Roof leak and inside drywall repair from water damage. Rosendo found and fixed a leak that two others failed to find.
Sergey and the Wise Stage crew are the best contractor team I've ever worked with. Sergey was honest, responsive, and stayed on time and in budget. We had a complicated bathroom addition that included structural changes, plumbing, tiling, windows, electrical and more. They delivered a beautiful and high quality bathroom for us at a significantly lower price than other quotes we received. I give Sergey my highest recommendation. They are the best.
Very good workmanship and friendly contractor.
I have known Duenas Landscaping for about nine years. I contacted them from a business card they left in my mail box one day. I tried them on cutting three trees in my backyard and I was totally satisfied and impressed. They cleaned up afterwards and hauled away the debris as agreed. I gave them another job later on in my front yard(re-paving my driveway, changing my car-port supports and landscaping). My neighbors were so impressed they asked me if I would recommend them. I did not hesitate to do. NOw, at least five of my neighbors have used Duenas Landscaping, some on a regular weekly basis. I would NOT hesitate to recommend them for any landscaping projects. They are reliable, trustworthy and clean. Manuel Duenas, the owner, is one good individual and a very honest person. You can call me for reference any time. Ray C. Belmont (591-3063)
Dynamic, good communication and teamwork between contractor and customer. Benny offered several ideas which gave the project added value, saved time and some dollars.
I had a very difficult time finding someone to help me with my project in my basement. It wasn’t big enough for a lot of contractors and was too big big for a lot of other folks. I am so glad I found Pat. He And his colleagues did an amazing job with the renovation of our basement! He is extremely trust worthy, timely and efficient. I greatly appreciate Pat’s work and I have recommended him to all my neighbors and friends.
I hired CFI Construction to frame a new 501 sq ft building on our property to be used as a sewing studio. Today, they started and finished framing the walls, and enclosing the entire building with shear panels. Next week, when the trusses arrive, they are going to install them and install roof shearing. I learned of CFI two days ago on Thumbtack. Having observed their work today, I feel like the A team just fell out of the sky into my project. They are phenomenal in every respect. Their work, honesty, and work ethic are models for the construction industry. They have years of experience framing large projects, both residential and commercial. I was humbled that they chose to work on my project. They are not solely a framing company. They can build a building from start to finish, I just happened to hire them for framing. Having enjoyed today's experience, I'm going to use them for more phases of our project. Both the owner of the company (Steve) and one of his sons (Drew) were on site the entire day, as well as their crew of 5 framers. I wanted to write this review now, even though they still have trusses to install and the front porch to frame, because I want other users of Thumbtack to have the same benefit of a 1st class, licensed, professional construction company, as I did today. I strongly recommend that you seek out CFI Construction for your projects. They are the real deal. Thank you Steve and Drew.
