Orisel (Cardenas Construction) l diagnosed and fixed a long-time nagging electrical intermittent. He has an upbeat personality and excellent communication skills which removed the uncertainty and pain usually associated with getting these difficult homeowner problems remedied.
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!
Ricardo is fast, honest, and super reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to hire him again in an instant. I had a couple of plumbing issues that popped up after a renovation, and not only did Ricardo fix them, he even gave me advice on what to do if the issues happen again. Seriously, Ricardo is the best.
German delivered as promised. I was in a jam and needed desperately to finish the project by a certain date. He also had to work around a construction crew which meant coming over early in the evenings a few times. He and his crew were polite, reliable and competent. Highly recommended!
I had a small damaged dresser that I needed taken from my house. Matt answered the call and was curteous, prompt and very professiional. He informed me that cabinet builfding and construction arenhis profession and I would definitly seek him out again for additional work.
I hired Derrick to frame and hang 12 doors in a portion of a commercial office building I am renovating. The doors are expensive, full-light, pre-stained, red oak doors of varying sizes. Derrick arrived on the job with the complete set of top-end, professional-level equipment the job required, and he proceeded to complete the job in a timely manner. I am a perfectionist, and Derrick competed the job to my total satisfaction. I highly recommend Derrick, and I will certainly hire him again later this year, when I renovate the remaining portion of my building.
Jasper did an excellent job of designing and building my computer desk and storage unit. On our first meeting he was able to translate the description of what I wanted into a drawing with measurements. On his next visit he confirmed the measurements and proposed workarounds for dealing with challenges such as the room's molding as well as taking a paint sample to match the color of the unit with the room. The results were better than I expected. The unit truly looks built-in with molding around the top that matches the molding in the room. Though it's a floor to ceiling unit, it does not feel overbearing due to the design, color and seamless attachment to walls and ceiling. He was easy to work with when making adjustments in order to accommodate placement of my computer equipment. When I specified what I wanted, I got exactly that. Jason is an extremely competent woodworker and very fast executor. I would highly recommend him.
I work in the construction industry as a project manager. I am not sufficiently knowledgeable in piping/plumbing to perform the work myself (as I tend to create more issues than resolve them). I needed a shower valve replaced that I had managed to break at home while trying to make some repairs. Gerardo not only gave a great price, but his attention to detail, craftsmanship and experience was above my expectations. I was and am very pleased with how everything went. He was clean, very friendly and I enjoyed his company. I hope to use him on all piping/plumbing needs in the future.
Max is an amazing plumber. He is very knowledgeable, creative in his approach, very dependable, so nice. I can't recommend him enough! He did a huge amount of work for my kitchen remodel and everything worked out great (entirely New plumbing, moved sink, New range hood, added a dishwasher... and more!). I will work with him exclusively moving forward!!
Richard Hynes is a very detailed professional. Upon meeting Richard I felt comfortable about the project. We originally wanted to order materials for the project and he had suggested to me that he would order any materials and provide us with the receipts. Luckily we let him order the material as it turns out the ones we wanted to order were undersized for our project. Richard came and seismically retrofitted our home. He also helped us on our kitchen and bathroom remodels while managing the project the whole way, hiring subs, coordinating between myself and subcontractors and achieving the results desired. Richards pricing was 20% cheaper compared to licensed professionals in the area. We are so glad to have had his help, as the previous worker we hired from thumbtack turned out to be unlicensed at a cheaper price, but ended up costing us a lot more money in the long run.
Juan remodeled our unfinished attic space (about 700+ sq ft) from top to bottom and turned it into a new office studio. He laid out the framework, ran electrical wires, put up insulation and drywall, painted and stained, added window trim, installed hardwood flooring and baseboards, and added storage cabinets. He was able to finish our attic in three weeks, and for a very reasonable price. He is a very hard worker, and really creative with his solutions. He always had helpful advice for me when I wasn't sure what decisions to make. He is now our go to contractor when we need work done around the house. I highly recommend him for his work quality, professional etiquette, and ease of communication. I am very happy with the work he is done, and can't wait to work with him again.
Scorpion Services provided me and my family with an amazing Trex deck. The upper deck covers a large portion of our lower deck which has made this winter season enjoyable outside. I definitely recommend Scorpion Services to anyone who is remodeling/building a deck or add on to their home.
We were thoroughly satisfied with the concrete work done by Kris Fredrickson, Anderson Construction’s concrete contractor. Our new driveway and sidewalk look great. Kris listened to us and did his best to accommodate our wishes, going above and beyond. We would definitely hire him again and recommend him to others. And Mike Anderson stayed in constant communication w/us making sure that we were satisfied with how the project was proceeding.
Michael is the most passionate and punctual contractor I have ever worked with! A true, honest partner in your project with broad and deep knowledge of all facets of construction and design. Helped me with a complex condo bathroom renovation project and did an incredible job and really understood out needs and had a roll up your sleeves attitude to meet our really tight timeline that we found ourselves under. Highly recommended!!!
Since completing an extensive renovation project which turned out to be quite unpleasant, I've been more leery of hiring an unknown contractor. With Sergey Asadov of Wise Stage Remodeling, there were no such concerns. The project was replacement of a common fence in a steep/rocky backyard, which required finesse in explaining verbally what the outcome would look like. From initial meeting and followup calls, Sergey was direct, attentive, and easy to communicate with; grasping what was not expressed but understanding the goals of both parties. The contrast could not have been greater nor more pleasant, between the large contracting company and the smaller Wise Stage Remodeling. Concern, care for the project and client, and attention to detail made the whole experience a pleasure. The outcome is lovely, and we are in the beginning stages of a larger retaining wall/fence project which I am confident will be equally as fine. Positive personal relationships are not usually a noticeable attribute when dealing with repairs, renovations ... and messes. This is certainly an exception; additionally there was no trade off whatsoever in the kind, attentive level of workmanship and positive attitude, as well as pride in the level of good work done. Thanks for a Very good outcome, Very good experience, Very good company.
I would highly recommend Shaz Construction! We needed kitchen & bathroom remodeling and looked at a few companies, but am glad we chose Shaz Construction. Not only Shaz helped us with re-designing our kitchen and bathroom, he made it look fabulous. We had no idea on what types of products to select to match this design and he assisted every step of the way. Shaz even gave us tips which ended up saving us money. Shaz paid close attention to detail and ensured that everything ran smoothly with quality workmanship. Shaz is extremely professional and easy to work with, and kept us informed all the time. We could not be happier with our kitchen & bathroom. We could not be happier with our kitchen & bathroom transformation. When people walk in, they are blown away at the difference. It is amazing what a new kitchen and bathroom can do to your house. I have recommended Shaz to everyone and would do it all over again with him. If you are looking for a contractor Shaz is definitely the person you want to select.
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.
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.
Miguel did an awesome job fixing an old "skeleton only" garage to building one that is stronger, roomier and lot more functional than just a plain-old-garage. I would recommend Miguel for other jobs and use his services again for my own projects.
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.
Jeff is hied by our company at the last minute notice, for a 4 story, 20,000 square foot condominium new construction design project in San Francisco. He is extremely patient and talented, energetic and efficient. I am very impressed with his skill of using the modern technology with all the most updated software, computer aided design tools. That will greatly increase the accuracy and choices, especially in such a complex scale. Jeff is also familiar with all the application process of obtaining planing permit, building permit and conditional use permit. He read PPA and Ruben design committee comments very carefully, implemented line by line, yet in the mean time, watching out for the owner's interest like a lawyer. We have dealed with many big name professionals in San Francisco before we reach this point, Jeff has the skill all in one, and has the unbeatable speed since he is light and mobile, comparing to the cumbersome organization that answers your phone call with a secretary. After we gain the planning permit, we will most likely to continue to heir him for the building permit process, since he is an excellent communicator, to integrate the design with Machanical engineers, civil engineers, structural engineers. We believe he is the one for us.
