My husband and I planned a very assorted list of repairs that included painting, planting plants, electrical work and design of a flagstone path around an existing path that needed to blend in as nearly as possible. They showed up (Yeah!) on time (imagine that!) and worked vigorously through the list, coordinating each effort in a priority that suited my needs. This is the second time we have used this service, and their skill set and my demands, were exceeded. They shopped for my materials and cleaned up after themselves everyday. They were cheerful, very polite and were intent on making us happy. They truly seemed to enjoy working together and always asked questions to assure they were on the right track. I will not stop using the Unstoppable Handyman, and will continue to call them for future work because of their work efforts and their versatility.

We recently used Jose to do some improvements on a home that we just purchased. We were very concerned about finding someone both professional and talented since this our first home purchase. Thankfully we were absolutely impressed with both Jose's talent and professionalism. Jose did an amazing job and treated our home as it if was his own. We will be using Jose now and in the future for all home improvements and repairs. We highly recommend Jose as handyman, electrician, painter etc. Please feel free to contact us for any reference.

We needed our yard cleaned so we decided to find out what kinds of services would fit our needs. That's when we came across Sufficient Home Improvement. Justin Frost the owner of Sufficient Home Improvement was the one who came out to do the work. Which is great to see a boss who's not afraid to get his hands dirty too. He was very courteous and did an excellent job cleaning up our yard. He was very professional and when he was done he made sure to show me everything he had done to make sure that I was satisfied with his work before he left. I would recommend Sufficient Home Improvement to anyone that needs a handyman.

I used Thumbtack in the morning and hired Steve to do the job that same afternoon. What more could one ask for other than completing the work in a professional manner, which he did? The next time I need a good handyman, I’ll know exactly where to look.

My property had a main sewer line blockage that was backing up water into my home--Elmer responded quickly to my request and showed up at my property within the hour. Most importantly, he worked to efficiently remove the blockage in my lines (due to tree roots) that occurred a good 70 ft. from my foundation. Elmer was also quick to provide tips on prevention of additional blockages and general sewer line maintenance. I would not hesitate to again contact Elmer for any future plumbing projects. A very nice gentleman.

We have had a leaky roof for over a year. Three other contractors have tried to repair it. With each subsequent rainstorm not only did the roof continue to leak but in more places than before. We hired Ponds Handyman Services. We were immediately impressed with his extensive knowledge of tile roofs. He showed up on time, worked hard and made the agreed upon repairs. I am confident that he has solved our problem. He is professional and very reasonable in his pricing. I will hire him again for other projects.

As a handyman, Dave is right on. He is versatile and knows what he is doing. If he doesn't, he figures it out given his innate ability to problem solve. His work is clean and he works efficiently. I will recommend Dave to my friends and family. Also, he is timely. When he says he'll be there, he is there. And if not, he will call. Larry National City.

The TV mounting installation that was seemingly straightforward turned out to be a challenging task as my house has steel beams inside the walls. Robert found a strong and creative alternative to mounting the TV and did a phenomenal job on the mounting. He is very responsive to emails and a trustworthy handyman. He even came back 30min after the installation was done when he realized he had mistakenly put my tape measure into his toolkit! His pricing was competitive with the other bids I received on thumbtack. Thank you Robert!

My irrigation pipes burst and caused water to drain from underneath my driveway next to my lawn. Mateo Pedro (MP) was quick to respond when I posted the job and he met with me the same day at 5pm. He dug up part of the lawn and provided a preliminary assessment on his own time. MP was kind, courteous, and professional. He quoted me a flat price that was very fair considering the work that had to be done without knowing the entirety of the problem. He took the time to evaluate my irrigation system and provided tips on improving lawn maintenance. I contracted with MP and he showed up a 7am the next morning and fixed the problem that day and after completing the repair he did a great job of cleaning up. I would definitely recommend MP if I have any additional handyman work in the future. Great Job Mateo!

I needed someone to fix a few items at my client's home before selling it. Nick showed up within a day, bid the job much more reasonably than anyone else and completed the work within 1 day. When something wasn't working perfectly, he returned without question to take care of it. He's got great integrity. I'll be hiring him for all of my handyman needs!

I hired Hugh to paint my Living & Dining rooms. I discovered that he is an artist with a designer's eye! He helped me select a classic color and the rooms look beautiful! Being experienced in the business, he helped me organize my projects and recommended an outstanding Electrician & Carpenter team who installed recessed lighting, hardwood floors, crown moulding and baseboards. In addition, he has painted my kitchen & bathroom, transforming their appearance! I am so pleased with his work! He pays attention to detail and insures that jobs are done right the first time! He is trustworthy and demonstrated leadership qualities when the teams were coordinating their work. Hugh is also a Handyman and I have a few more projects I'd like completed around the house. Of course he'll be the one I hire! His prices are very fair for the quality of work.

We got five different handyman quotes and Fernando was the most reliable/responsive/Professional one of them all. He didn’t just give a quote, he actually came out to look at the jobs needed and then gave a written estimate. There’s was no guessing involved with his quote or what he was going to do. His work was great and he communicated every step of the way. The repairs he did was of great quality. In fact, I’m having him come out to now do some upgrades for me.

We found our handyman! He did an excellent job completing the tasks we have for him- even provided an affordable solution to a home aesthetic issue we have since we bought our house. Awesome multi-tasker, he knew how to prioritize work such that he did work that would take longest time first and was able to complete other tasks concurrently. Stephanie is very responsive and coordinated the project well.

Jonathan at Nailed It Handyman has done a ton of work around my home, and I couldn't be happier. His skill set is extremely versatile, works quickly and cleanly, and he has a friendly and personable demeanor. Recently he has caulked and sealed around my tub, installed a new front door and trim, and redid the tile backsplash in my kitchen. I definitely recommend these guys!!

"I hired Danny to paint the interior of my home and he did a fantastic job! He was also able to do a few handyman tasks for me including fix the broken wiring to my ceiling fan, pressure wash some exterior stairs and decking, and install thresholds where the bathroom tile meets the hardwood floor. Danny is conscientious, detailed, trustworthy and stands behind his work. I highly recommend him."
