If you're looking for a skilled and resourceful handyman who is punctual, responsible, and value for your money, David Gomes is your man. I initially hired David to repair two pocket doors - one was stuck and the other did not slide smoothly. I was a little nervous that he had to remove the moulding to repair the doors, but he did a great job. I, also, had him adjust some of my cabinet doors and he worked on my patio doors and screens so they now open so smoothly. David is, indeed, a specialist on doors, but he can do so much more that I had him do other things in my house. . .install 3 new toilets and a new lock and deadbolt on a door, re-grouted some tiles, replace spray hose, moulding in powder room etc. Whenever he finishes a task, he always asks you to check it so that you are completely satisfy with the job. He made several trips to the hardware store to get materials he needed and didn't charge me for his time. I have a large custom home and have used many contractors/handymen for various jobs and I would highly recommend David. I am so glad I found him on Thumbtrack. . .he will be the only handyman I will use from this day forward.
I hired Casiano's to replace my kitchen faucet. The faucet was making noise and then water spray got clocked. I had already purchased a replacement faucet that was recommended by my HOA, so I just needed someone to come and replace it. I wasn't able to be present, but my renters liked that setup was friendly and professional. When I arrived to inspect the work, I found everything as good as new. I also appreciated Casiano's flexibility to accept payment via PayPal. This allowed me to not bother my renters with payments, inspect the work afterwards and pay without scheduling further visits.
Slava did a great job with the fence and has really nice craftsmanship. The only limiting factor that kept me from providing a 5-star review was that he quoted one price in person and then when I followed up a month later to hire him, the quote was $300 more. When I asked about this, he said that this quote now includes materials. I would have thought that the original quote would have as well. Either way, the job was great and still reasonable in price and Slava was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend.
Derrick saved us a lot of money. We got 2 other quotes to replace 3 doors. Derrick let us know we did not have to replace our front door. He said he could fix it by replacing the knob and lock. 2 General Contractors told us we were going to have to replace! He patiently waited for us to get our stuff together (order and paint doors) and once we were ready, he scheduled within a week. I would recommend him and we will use him again!
I hired Gusanito to install porcelain tiles in my bathroom. He was very prompt--being the first contractor to contact me on thumbtack--and quickly responded to my text messages whenever I had a question. He takes his time and is very detailed in his work. He is also willing to help you with other problems. For example, in addition to installing the tiles, I also wanted to change my sink faucet and shower handles. He agreed to do the extra work at a reasonable price. The tile installation went smoothly, however, we ran into plumbing issues which he couldn't solve. I'm giving him four stars because I hired him on thumbtack for tile installation services, not plumbing. Nonetheless, he agreed to bring his cousin (who is an experienced plumber) over the next day to change my sink faucet at no extra cost. The total work took about two full days to complete, but I'm sure it would have been less if we didn't run into the plumbing issues. So I recommend him but make sure you talk with him thoroughly about what you want to accomplish.
Bogdan was great! He replied right away for a same day handyman need, was on time, fast and efficient! His rate was totally reasonable and we will definitely be requesting him for future handy man needs
We hired Eli for a total interior renovation of our newly purchased home, including changing the layout of our first floor, adding a half bath, 2 full bath and 1 kitchen reno, hardwood floor, HVAC, roofing, repiping & electrical work. Total value of the project exceeded 140K, and lasted ~ 4 months. Eli & team delivered good quality work and kept us at our budget. He is a professional with high integrity. He was always responsive, provided helpful, thoughtful and truthful advice, and committed to his promises. Our journey together wasn't without hiccups, but Eli is someone you can trust as a partner battling any challenges together along the way.
Very impressed with S.O.T.A Construction. I contacted 5 different contractors and S.O.T.A. responded within an hour. Two of the others I contacted did not to commercial work. Another responded 5 days later. We needed someone ASAP and S.O.T.A. got us an estimate within a few hours and arrived the next morning to do the job. Wow! The work they did was very well done. Truly professional work. We couldn't be happier with the outcome. We will be contacting them again.
I have much pleasure in recommending the work of M&M Construction Eli leads a team of highly qualified, diligent and technically superior tradesmen and designers. M&M Construction have completed several large projects for me which included bathroom, laundry area , kitchen and dining area. All work was done to a very high standard and on schedule and to budget. I have nothing but gratitude for the fantastic work performed by M&M Construction In my experience this is very rare in any trade. Lee Swanson
We hired MJH Construction Management to complete renovations of our recently purchased home. With a wealth of knowledge and experience, MJH determined the best solutions to a number of complex repairs and additions including floor leveling, heating, plumbing and electric. MJH helped us choose several improvements like changing the floor plan for better use of space, installing a gas fireplace as well as a bathroom and kitchen upgrade. MJH oversaw the contractors to ensure the work was completed and billed correctly. Throughout the process MJH kept us apprised of the costs and schedule - there were no surprises. We are delighted with the results - our renovated house came out fantastic.
I hired Sergey and his team to do a complete Bathroom and a partial Kitchen remodel. Having gotten quotes from multiple contractors, we settled on Sergey as his quote was reasonable, but more importantly he promised a quick turn around time. I admit, initially I did not believe the job would be done so quickly, and was mentally prepared for a 1.5X - 2X factor. Not only did they finish the job within the promised time frame, I think they might have been a day or so early. However, that does not mean they did a shoddy job - in fact they strived for perfection in every aspect. For example, the vanity we ordered for the bathroom, had crooked angles as it hadn’t been assembled properly. It was very minor and I was ok with it - however they decided to take their time to fix someone else’s bad work before installing because ‘it was not right’. This came through in every aspect of the job. The team that worked on our house was also very professional, always on time, and cleaned up after themselves everyday, unlike some other contractors I have worked with who leave the place as a war zone until the entire job is done. I am glad I found Wise Stage Remodeling and will be using them for all my future remodeling jobs, and would recommend them to everyone I know.
After much discussion, my wife and I decided to remodel our dated Victorian kitchen. Following online research, multiple in house consultations and estimates, I was surprised by the significant valuation deviations and the lack of insight concerning maximizing our space. I recognize with these old Victorians that there can be complex problems once you start tearing out the old, planning around electrical, but these valuation inconsistencies concerned us; subsequently, we put off our remodeling plans. A couple months passed; my wife was at a school fundraiser and explained our situation to a friendly couple. They recommended a construction company called Refresh and Build; we eventually contacted the firm and spoke with Sam. Once we explained our situation and vaguely what we were looking for, we set up an onsite consultation. Sam not only gave us a reasonable quote but the best advise on how to maximize our medium size kitchen in an artistic style while maintaining the Victorian’s integrity. The project moved along on schedule and within budget! We were so thrilled with the ease, pricing, and final product that we had them remodel our bathrooms. My wife is happy for now! ;) Highly recommended.
When Shaz present his design, we saw our dream home. He is a master in his profession and his sense of style and knowledge of construction is exceptional. We know our home now is not only beautiful, but also built with best quality materials and workmanship. Thank you Shaz!
After months of searching for the right contractor to do our remodel of our master bath,we found pacific and the process and the way they handle and do remodels is genius, we just finshed with them about a week ago , and I am beyond happy with the finshed product. Moran and his team kept me informed and involed in the process the whole time , not everything little thing he came to me with , only decision they he knew i would want to make , I selected who i wanted to do the work, i knew everything up front , i wasnt hit with a bill after. Or change orders. and after a bad kitchen refacing( with another company ) that took months and tons of problems , I was kinda scared to countitue , but Pacific gave me my joy back , I will forever be thankful for the time and energy moran put into the project.
Mike and Appetite for Construction did some excellent remodeling in our 100 + year old home in the SF. We weren't sure what direction we wanted to take and Mike was able to help us figure it out and get the job done ahead of the deadline. Now we have a beautiful new kitchen and open area that we love to come home to! Thanks Appetite!
First just want to note that I rarely ever leave reviews for anything. Jay and his crew were awesome and I felt like they really deserved a great review and some insight into hiring them. I had a really hard time finding a *licensed* contractor to take my job because 1) it was a repair that needed immediate attention and 2) it was a more complex situation that involved 2 different homeowners because my unit leaked into the downstairs. Jay was very helpful and understanding, and he was very honest and easy to work with. Also to note, I was unable to be there for the fixes since my tenant lives there and I live 8 hours away -- Jay regularly updated me on the status, sent me pictures of the whole process and completed everything very quickly. I'm a marketing professional and found Greenstar to be very professional, on time and reasonably priced AND provided high quality work - all things that are very hard to find. I definitely trust them and can confidently say I would recommend them and will hire them again for future jobs.
I couldn't be happier with Dan's work. He and Brian did an amazing job transforming my decades' old bathroom into a modern gem. Here are a few things that made him stand out (not in any particular order) : 1. Professionalism. I've heard so many stories that contractors are notoriously famous for being late, but no, Dan and Brian are very punctual (in a few cases they even get to my place earlier than scheduled). The second day into the project, it was unbearably hot (close to 100 degrees) and there was no fan in my condo. I felt bad for creating such a inhumane work condition so asked him to skip that day. But Dan said he wanted to and continued the work. 2. Work quality. Dan is extremely knowledgeable about remodeling. He is also very detail oriented. When installing the tiles, he carefully laid the tiles so there is a great consistency in the shades and patterns. It was beautifully done and I was really impressed. 3. Value. Dan's quote was very reasonable and competitive. I've got one contractor whose offer was three times higher - for a tiny 40 sqft bathroom that is a crime IMHO. I was also turned away by so many contractors because my project is too "small" and hence not worth their time. I appreciate that Dan treats all projects the same - the way it should be. 4. "Can do" attitude. As a first time home owner, I just do not know the ins and outs of home remodeling. I was frustrated to learn that the plumbing for my vanity is not in the center, the walls are not level etc etc etc. Some contractors would come in asking me to "fix" these problems, which would make their lives easier. But not Dan. Instead of complaining about these problems (which really aren't my fault), he tries to work around and find a solution. Plumbing not centered? No problem. Walls not level? No problem. Missing faucet parts? No problem. This kind of "anything is possible" attitude really gave me a peace of mind and makes the remodeling procrss less stressful. 5. Cost savings. Most contractors asked me to buy a pre made shower niche, which usually costs 100 dollars, and metal edges or bullnose tiles, because it made their lives easier. Dan made these himself and saved me a lot of hassles and money. I will continue to use Dan for all other renovation products and will refer him to my friends and colleagues. I hope you can consider Dan for your projects as well.
We hired Fay and her team to work on our mountain hotel lobby renovation and club house. We were truly impressed by the her team's creative thoughts and efficiency. We hired an architect before them but ISO ideas produces much better quality work and with fast turn around. They were very versatile to address our requests and very friendly professionals to work with. I highly recommend to other business and home owners.
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.
Mark was wonderful to work with. He responded quickly to messages on Thumbtack and via text. He was punctual and flexible with our schedule. He walked through everything with us, listened to our concerns and needs, and worked with us to stay within our budget and timing, and sequenced projects accordingly. He also has a great sense of humor and was pleasant to talk with. We were very happy with his work and the work of the professionals he worked with for electrical, plumbing, and painting. The work that was done: removal and replacement of 2 windows, walls, and flooring where there was water damage, wood rot, and the start of mold; adding a door to access the space under the front stairs and creating a storage space with tiled floor and drywall; waterproofing / sealing the brick of our front steps and porch; removing carpeting and laminate flooring and installation of new laminate flooring; installing siding on the front of our house and painting of the front of the house (2 stories); texturizing and painting walls; installing a wet bar / kitchenette; replacing shower pan, tile, and shower door; removal of tree and bushes in front yard. I think that’s everything. We highly recommend Mark and would happily work with him again.
There are some times in life when you unexpectedly meet someone truly special, and that happened to my wife and I when we chose John to work on our home. We posted to Thumbtack just looking for a carpenter one day, met John, and ended up with a skilled builder who will be a friend for a long time. He did a kitchen addition for us, handling all the aspects from carpentry through plumbing and electrical and more. One of the most skilled builders I've ever worked with (always focused on "doing it right"), more versatile than most (over the course of our project he did engineering and on-the-fly design as well as handling all hands-on tasks), and a genuinely great guy to be around. The whole family was ready to adopt him. My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend John.
