Arisel handled a small hardwood repair job in our kitchen. First I'm grateful that he offered his services. Many contractors only bid big jobs. Second he followed on his commitments to me, being on time and following up the next day with a touch up. I did not have to follow up. He was good to work with. Third I think he did an excellent job with the conditions he had to deal with. I recommend him.
Jose is great! On-time, friendly, and considerate. I love it when contractors dont mind teaching aspects about the project, describing what they're doing and informing. And are not bothered when people are curious. Never felt like I was on the clock with him. A great plumber / handyman that I would gladly re-hire again! Thanks Jose!
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!
Having dealt with A LOT of contractors in SF, I can assure you Matias is one you will stick with.
I own a bar in downtown Oakland and we have been working with Chao for about a year. He has helped us with electrical work, building projects, and general maintenance around the bar. We are always pleased with his know-how, punctuality and thoroughness.
First time I have been thoroughly happy with a contractor service! Albino was great to work with from the start. We needed to sand and refinish a 300sq foot deck. He came quickly to give a quote (which was reasonable), then got the job started immediately and done within planned time frame (we were on a tight timeline). Rigoberto did most of the work and was very professional and kind. The quality of the work was great, even better than expected and cost was exactly as pre determined with no surprises. Would definitely recommend him to others and hire him again if needed.
I was in a time crunch, and needed a falling fence repaired asap. Matt responded quickly to my initial request, as well as every subsequent email/text. We scheduled a visit the next morning, where he inspected the damage, and described a couple of options for the repair. That same evening, he sent us a quote with a reasonable and competitive price, and luckily was able to squeeze us into his schedule, despite only a couple days notice. The first day of the job, Matt and his team showed up on time, and got straight to work tearing out our old, rotting fence. Their work was clean and tidy, and they even made the extra effort to accommodate us in removing all of the debris that day, as we were scheduled to have photos of the yard taken. They returned the next morning to construct a beautiful, new fence, built to the highest standards. Afterwards, they cleaned up, ensured our yard was returned to it's original condition, and even helped us out by taking some extra yard compost with them, which had been left behind by the city. In the past, my experience w/ other contractors in general had been less than positive. Cost, communication, and especially workmanship on several jobs had become such a concern, that recently, I have been simply attempting most projects myself, if at all possible. My experience with Matthew Kelly Construction has been a breath of fresh air compared to these other interactions. Throughout the entire job, he and his team were incredibly considerate, accommodating, and some of the friendliest people I have ever worked with. Not only would I hire Matt again in a heartbeat, I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for quality carpentry/construction work.
I've been wanting to convert my living room into a bedroom, but I didn't know who to hire. I asked around and a lot of contractors asked for too much money, around $1,000-$2,000 just for a door installation. I hired Slavik because he gave me the best quote. He arrived the very next day to inspect my apartment and gave me a few options. Slavik and his team installed the door in record time and they did an outstanding job making sure it fits and functions properly. I couldn't have asked for a better job, plus the cost was reasonably affordable. These guys are the best! I'll be hiring Slavik as my trusted contractor for all my future renovations.
I had a complicated project where I had one universal remote/receiver controlling two ceiling fans. One of the ceiling fans stopped working. Before hiring Ben, I had 2 other contractors who couldn't fix the problem. Ben was the only one who has able to troubleshoot and solve the problem. His price is very reasonable as well. I will hire Ben for all my home electrical issues!
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 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.
Gerardo was exceptionally communicative and easy to work with on top of doing high-quality work on time and on budget. What else can one ask for in a contractor?? He responded to email and text within minutes and showed up on time on a Sunday of Memorial day weekend. He installed our new kitchen island sink, including an additional drain that he had not been aware of before arrival. Rather than make it more complicated, Gerardo went quickly to the nearest hardware store, figured out the parts needed, and got the job done quickly. He worked cleanly, was very conscientious of our furniture, floors, personal items etc, and did it all with a smile and good attitude. After completing the work, Gerardo took the time to test and re-test every aspect of his work, and even correct some minor mistakes made by our previous plumber. I would not hesitate to recommend Gerardo, and will definitely hire him again in the future!
Nicki has been the designer for 2 of our home remodel projects. For our kitchen/dining room/living room she created an open contemporary multi-purpose fabulous space that we love every day! She coordinated with the contractor on all work. For our master bathroom/bedroom and den/2nd bath--again she executed great use of space, color, and design. We loved that she got what our personal tastes and design style was. She created original designs, including custom cabinetry and tile work.
Wes did some general home repairs..he was very fast and reliable.
I hired them to lay the engineered bamboo floor in my condo. They did exactly what promised and in the time they originally specified. I have been doing remidelling and construction of my rentals and my resident for the last 10 years and very much familiar with the business. Out if many contractors or handymen i met Jason and Regina are the outstanding team. They work fast, they are very proactive and attentive to details. And their price was reasonable. What is the most important for me is that they do listen to my suggestions - not like many macho style contractors:). The floor work looks absolutely great and i am very happy. So that i would like to hire them for other work on my rental property.
Fernando was a pleasure to work with and very responsive. He built us extra shelves in our shed and assembled a ramp kit I bought online for it. I am very happy with the work he performed! I would caution to be careful when asking for a quote vs his hourly rate since his quote is a flat rate regardless if he finishes it in less time. The difference was not disclosed to me so I was under the impression the quote followed the same hourly rate he was charging. So in short, if you know how many hours your project will take, simply hire him for the hourly rate instead of the quoted flat rate for a project as it may be a better value. Overall, I would hire him again as it was a good experience and his punctuality was top notch!
Jim was a very easy and pleasant contractor to work with. His crew was on time and professional. Since he is a veteran, it helps that he can get 10% off at Home Depot (hey, every little bit helps!). I would highly recommend Jim and his crew for any home improvement project.
I had a small fence section that was started by another contractor and it was a disaster. Nothing was level, there were concrete pillars jutting out of the ground so I fired the contractor and started looking for another one. Victor answered my post on thumbtack and I had him come over the next day to give me a quote. He's quiet, confident and quickly understood what I was trying to do and went about explaining the corrective work that would need to done and in a few minutes listed of the material needed and why the previous contractors design was flawed and ugly. Not only did he finish the project but he corrected all the mistakes the previous contractor had made and I'm very happy with the end result. I hired him immediately to fix some rotten wooden planter boxes on the side of my house. It was a much bigger job than either of us expected but he finished it under 2 days and it looks great.
I had several estimates on renovation work needed in my newly purchased fixer up home. I needed two bathrooms renovated, a new kitchen, and new paint in the entirety of my home. Jay from Green Planet Construction struck me as extremely open and professional from our first meeting. As someone who is not very "handy," it took a bit of explaining for me to understand the details of the extent of the work that needed to be done, why some things may or may not need to be done, and all the options in the middle. Jay was very patient with me, and easily accommodated my requests, changes of mind, and was able to come up with creative solutions to some of the issues my century old house presented at each stage of the renovation. From the installation of new kitchen cabinets, a full demo and creation of a master bathroom requiring lots of tile work, installing appliances, and hoisting my new huge kitchen refrigerator through a kitchen island opening because it wouldn’t fit through the door, Green Planet was thorough and performed outstanding work. Never before have I been so impressed with a general contractor who provided true quality work for such a reasonable price, and all the while helping me make informed decisions rather than dictating the plan. I will likely have my family room remodeled in the near future, and I plan on keeping Jay at Green Planet Construction on the top of my list.
SkyBlue Builders did an excellent job painting our home's backyard fence. They did a thorough pressure wash of the whole surface area without any shortcuts. They painted the whole area to perfection as well. Highly recommend general contract work from SkyBlue Builder Inc.!
Dynamic, good communication and teamwork between contractor and customer. Benny offered several ideas which gave the project added value, saved time and some dollars.
