Sergey arrived on time with all the tools needed to remove an existing ceiling fan and install a new one. Installation instructions were missing but we were able to secure them online from the vendor. Sergey is talented and patient and I would highly recommend him.

I needed to remove security bars on a window and that means removing eight security one-way screws. This is my first using Thumbtack and everything very well. Patrick got the job done. He texted to say he was ten minutes away. He was hardworking, patient and accommodating. He answered all of the questions I had. It was great working with him. I manage a few properties and have worked with a lot of handymen and contractors. Patrick is definitely on my call back list. Thanks Patrick! Thanks Thumbtack.

Steve is my go-to handyman. He is very very good! Smart, responsible and really good at what he does. I hired him for a move that required a lot of furniture assembly. Not only did he do his job super fast, he also took on the management of my movers. I hired him for another project - a HUGE and very complicated IKEA wardrobe. He assembled it no time and no single bolt was left (you know how hard that is with IKEA). I love working with Steve and will definitely hire him again. I recommend him to all my family and friends.

Carlos did a good job on fixing my broken custom wood chair. He was always 1 minute early for the appointments we set and did the work efficiently. I thought the work could have been a little bit neater with some different clamping, but this was a tough job and overall he did a good job. I will call Carlos for handyman services again in the future!

Cruz never says no to any project. There is nothing too big or too small for him to do.He always has a positive can-do attitude that makes him a pleasant person to work with. On top of that, he is very patient. He did work around our office and we were not exactly sure how we wanted to do our projects. He offered his advise and expertise and got the job done very quickly. His work ethic and accuracy makes him our go-to handyman for all of our future projects.

Harp has been incredibly helpful across a variety of issues. A friend recommended him to help move a piece of furniture to a resale shop and I have since called on him to help with a variety of furniture moving and more difficult house/handyman needs (hanging a VERY heavy mirror, installing bathroom towel rods etc). I not only recommend Harp because he's helpful across a variety of issues, he's also a really great person. I've enjoyed getting to know him and would recommend him to anyone. I've already have recommended him to family and friends who also have been very satisfied with his service.

Harp was great and professional. I had many small home repairs. I patched and paint my dry wall, mounted projector and two tvs. He mounted my Tv above the fireplace where another handyman failed to do so. He also installed my new shower and fixed my sink. I highly recommended him and want to work again with him.

I'm a real person, I work at a tech startup in SF, and just having moved to a new part of the city - didn't feel like assembling furniture AND having to unpack. I had some NON-IKEA, but similar, furniture that needed to be assembled. I had looked at some other popular task sites but they were showing me candidates that didn't exactly look "handyman-capable", and were conveniently charging ridiculous hourly rates. That's when I searched another local list and found Chao's post for "handyman services"; we easily negotiated a fair arrangement and he was able to come that SAME DAY. I was initially nervous waiting for him to arrive but when Chao showed up - I felt like I won the lottery. He brought his own tools and didn't want to waste time on small talk. THIS GUY IS SERIOUSLY A PROFESSIONAL HANDYMAN, & FURNITURE ASSEMBLY SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT. Within his first 5 minutes on site, He took that first furniture box with 1000 pieces and had methodically and systematically placed them in an orderly fashion and quickly began assembly -- paying strict accordance to instructions detail. WHEN CHAO WAS DONE, THERE WERE NO EXTRA OR MISSING PIECES!!! And, even though this furniture was "cheap", it was assembled as best as possible. Chao is an expert. I had some difficult space constraints that he had to work within but he just adapted. He had lots of tricks too, like unfolding the packaging box to protect my floor. Using a piece of cardboard to protect the furniture during hammer-assembly steps, etc... This guy is PROFESSIONAL and I highly recommend him.

For all of your handywork needs,Chaojun is your man. The BEST and most prompt service I've ever experienced - efficient from start to finish, and clever with finding creative work-around solutions to assembly or repair services where most others would give up. He even helped me put up my Christmas decor, which was above and beyond the requested service. Very trustworthy (enough so to have him work on projects even when I'm not at home), and he will offer realistic advice and consultation if something else needs to be purchased in order to complete your project. I hired him for a large interior re-design project that included complex assembly, mounting, and light electrical work. Would refer him to friends and colleagues without hesitation!

I'll add to the props for Chao. Nice guy, professional, prompt. For me he repaired a window and changed a toilet wax seal. He seemed pretty knowledgeable about both areas. I would / will hire him for other projects.

Albino's team helped us do the following projects: 1) Juan painted the kitchen cabinets, bathroom walls and window sills; 2) Hector installed a new shower head and tile walls over the tub; 3) Hector replaced the bathroom exhaust fan twice. (First time my husband bought the exhaust fan which I did not like, so I bought another fan and Hector changed it with additional charge for the labor.) They provided very good services and responded to our request very quick. They also completed the job according to the schedule that they promised. Hector went with my husband to purchase materials and supplies, and they spent about 3 hours shopping at Home Depot. Hector was great in installing the shower head and tiles. He stayed late to complete the job to meet the due date. He also came back to fix the problem which we found after he left. If you need a licensed plumber then you will need to find someone else. However my husband thought Hector was an experienced worker and knew what he was doing. He was impressed when he went shopping with Hector. Juan has come back a couple times to touch up the paint and adjust the cabinet door upon request. We really appreciate their patience and cooperation. Excellent attitude and services. One job on our agreement list that we did not let them do was to replace the mirrors in bathrooms. Our concerns are first they can not guarantee to keep the mirrors intact when removing the mirrors, and second they asked us to get supplies to glue or nail the mirrors. Third, we can't find the right size of mirrors . So I decided to hire the worker who specially do mirrors replacement, even the cost was higher than Albino's team. Last thing, make sure to let them know if you need invoice or not when you get the estimate.

We initially contacted Albino to get a quote for interior painting. We liked him right away, and ended up chatting about other projects we were thinking about doing. We were thrilled when he said his team could do the work we had in mind within our timeline, and that he could manage the project! An overview of the work: - After they did demolition, it was revealed that large sections of our hardwood floors were damaged. Albino's team replaced the damaged sections so you would never know which wood is original and which is new, and refinished all of the hardwood floors throughout the house - the before and after is amazing! - They re-did 2 bathrooms - one of which required skilled plumbing work like moving a toilet, retiling the shower and floor, and replacing a single sink vanity with a double sink vanity. That bathroom is probably our favorite room in the house! - They did the paint job as initially discussed and painted every square inch of the inside of our house! This included painting our outdated oak kitchen cabinets and installing updated knobs, and the cabinets now look great! - There were countless other things the team did - like laying down laminate flooring in the kitchen and hooking up new kitchen appliances, installing overhead lights and dimmers, installing our new front doors as well as interior doors, and picking up supplies on as needed basis. Albino is trustworthy, fair, accountable, responsive, and kind. Each person on his team has their specialties and he is good at resource allocation to manage the client's costs. We felt like we were in good hands with Albino, and wholeheartedly recommend that you reach out to him for any projects you're considering!

I was a little leary due to the very low price. Usually you get what you pay for. I was pleasantly surprised to find the workmanship was very good and the price was half the cost of the contractor/handyman that was referred by my realtor.

I had a backyard pond & statue removed. Matt and I met first to go over the job. He called to confirm he was coming at the time we had set up and arrived on time. He removed it in less time than anticipated (it was hard work as it was concrete). He went about it in a logical and methodical way and was careful not to make a giant mess in the yard, and remained mindful of the plants nearby. He made it seem so easy, I wish I had done this years ago. I learned Matt is a carpenter as well and I would definitely hire him again.

Matt is awesome! Super personable and does great work! He follows his word and can make your vision a reality. I showed him some pictures of a wedding altar I wanted to build (in order to hold vintage doors) and he executed exactly what I was looking for! I will definitely have Matt back for my next project! I highly recommend you hiring Matt for any handyman or carpentry needs.

I really didn't have a clear idea of how to securely hang a really large piece of art. Del showed up when he said he would, he brought the tools and hardware he needed and when he left he'd perfectly positioned this great big picture. I love that the way he put it up I won't have to be trying to straighten it every time we have a minor quake. Finally, on the way out I mentioned another task I'd been meaning to deal with. He spent about 30 seconds looking at it, then told me how easily I could handle it myself.I was really impressed by that. I would absolutely recommend Delbert Evans for art installation or general handyman projects.

Austin was superb for our job to put in a cat door. It was a bit complicated in that we had a metal layer on the outside of our door and the cat door was one that used the microchip of the cat to enter. He not only was skilled but I felt so confident that he was reading the manual carefully and installing it according to the specific instructions for a metal door. He was prompt, respectful, reasonably priced, and efficient. He came over on the same day I requested it after another guy was a no show. He kind of was our knight in shining armor for the cat door :) Thank you Austin! We will for sure call him again for other handyman needs.

Austin was the perfect handyman, arriving early and leaving plenty of time to install my standing desk and flip-up table. Austin made sure that both fixtures were solidly in place, and even installed some additional brackets to provide the desks with extra support. He had a great attitude and was thoughtful with his time, finishing long before I had to attend an event in the evening. Affordable and highly recommended. Would definitely hire again!

Chris is fantastic! After removing some floating shelves, I had a handful of anchors wedged in my living room wall. I hired Chris to remove the anchors, fill in the holes, and re-paint the wall. Though the job took a few extra visits than originally predicted, he insisted on not charging me more than the original estimate of one visit...and the final job was impeccable. You can't even tell there were ever holes in my wall. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat.

Roberto did an amazing job with our gate! He is extremely skilled and can work with wood, metal, tile, and cement. Our gate required all this expertise as he had to erect two new metal fence posts, pour concrete to install them in our walkway and work with the existing tile to ensure that the overall look was preserved. He also did a fabulous job with the gate itself, planing and cutting the wood to the shape we wanted and installing all the door hardware. Finally, he was a pleasure to work with. He was always on time, very reliable and came in within a small margin of what he quoted. He works on an hourly rate model, which I really liked because it reduces the incentive to skimp on quality since his labor fees were guaranteed. Overall, I thought he did a great job and would recommend him to anyone in need of handyman or carpentry work.

Giving a thumbs up to Fatos for his work remodeling and extending an outside deck. He works by the hour with direct reimbursement for materials. His workmanship is top notch and I am very satisfied with the end product His initial estimate of about two weeks for this project was about right. I had the initial estimated quantity of materials delivered and paid for, then he got the rest ad-hoc as needed for which I reimbursed him. I've done plenty of construction myself, both contracting and with a hammer. But I wanted this done quickly and didn't have the time myself (mom's house in Napa) as I don't live nearby. Was a little nervous about the hourly arrangement as this can remove incentive to get work done timely and pad the bill, especially as I couldn't be there constantly to oversee. Happy to say Fatos worked hard and honestly and I feel I got good value for the money. To be clear he is a handyman, not a licensed contractor. This means liability is on the customer and any potential dispute resolution can be murkey. With that said, I recommend him for your small to medium sized projects.
