Jose came out and did a fantastic job. I've been remodeling homes for a long time, and have worked with many contractors, and he is one of the better ones I've worked with.
I flip homes in the North County. I have worked with Carlos for nearly 3 years on a number of custom remodeling projects when flipping homes. He is easy to work with and his guys are skilled. They are not the type of contractors who will rip you off. They work around my budget and Carlos's guys deliver quality work. I'm happy that I found them.
Hyde Handcraft was one of the most professional, hard working and honest contractors I have ever worked with! When considering which contractor to hire I had multiple bids. Hyde gave a very fair bid but was actually not the cheapest. I decided to use them based on the other reviews on Thumbtack. I am so glad I did! They always showed up when they said they were going to, or they would give plenty of notice to a change in time. They moved furniture carefully and cleaned up every space cleaner than it was before! They were so kind to our kids always talking to them and never annoyed at the constant questions from our 2 year old :). They put so much pride in their work...while installing all of our crown molding it would have been easy to not work with the crooked wall. Yet they spent way more time than they planned making it look perfect! They also installed exterior doors for us and they did an amazing job! I will definitely be using Hyde Handcraft again for any other work I need done and I highly recommend them to anybody who wants a fair price, professional contractors and outstanding quality. Josiah
Michael installed vinyl flooring in my new exercise studio. The work was outstanding but what really stood out was that he was responsive, was here when he said he would be, quickly came out to see the place and gave me a fair quote. You don't get that with most contractors these days. THANKs Michael!
While some contractors like to be diligent and safe without providing an initial quote, Sean was very confident in the picture I provided and in the work needed to help me fix my problem. He and I went back and forth on texts and emails to iron out details but at the end of the day his quote was spot on regarding labor. He knew exactly what type of material to purchase before his first and only visit. Upon first meet, he was very professional. He took the time to assess the situation, prep his work area, and got started as soon as possible. My wife really likes the way it turned out and is very satisfied with the effort Sean put in toward his work. Will be reaching out to Sean for other "handyman" requests. See pics for before, during, and after.
Brandon met me at Lowes at 8:30am to pick up supplies. We got to my house around 09:15. He fixed a broken kitchen cabinet. He painted my bathroom including the trim around the window. He hung a Venetian blind in my 2nd bdrm. He replaced my old toilet with a new and improved version. All four of these tasks were part of the estimate. Brandon also unclogged my bathroom sink-not part of the estimate- he just did it. Brandon was finished around 3:45pm. He knew all the tricks that help a contractor save time, but still get the job done correctly. I am extremely happy with the results and definitely will be using Brandon for future jobs. Thanks Brandon! Mark Gonzales
We received information that our shower would require some updating due the deteriorating nature of its foundation. The tile was also very old and not cosmetically pleasing. So we took this as an opportunity to update the shower and its tile, and also replace the old vanity and mirror. Not a huge job, but certainly a tedious one due to the install of the tile. We received quotations from other contractors; however we decided to go with James at Jamestown Design in the end. Pricing was on par with the other quotes received. Lead time of the project was also equal to what the other contractors had projected. What lead us to our final decision? James gave us a level of confidence, which the other contractors could not match, ensuring that the job would be done to our expectations 100%. The demo of the old shower went flawless. James carefully prepared the surrounding areas by laying down covers over everything, and even including the floor to reduce the amount of debris caused by the demolition. James showed up on time every day and left as quietly as he arrived. Every day he made sure that all of his tools, or whatever that was required for the job, was organized and off to the side & out of the way. As with any job unexpected issues can and will arise. More specifically, there was Black Mold found on one of the walls behind the shower. James brought this to our attention and recommended that we take care of this prior to completing the shower. He priced out the repair accordingly and with our approval he took care of it. James did not suggest anything that was unnecessary – This was certainly appreciated. Our bathroom and shower came out exactly how we wanted. The tile looks amazing and the quality of work is nothing short of exceptional. Apparently James does it all! He also was very helpful when it came to installing new doors in each of the rooms to our house. James is a great honest guy who does great work. We would certainly recommend James to any of our friends/family…And would most certainly have him do another project in our home when that time comes. Look no further than Jamestown Design.
We hired Jaime to demo our backyard which had a concrete patio and pavers, remove a tree, and install stamped concrete. He did an excellent job! We are very satisfied with his work; it turned out much better than we could have ever imagined! Jaime worked hard and his price was very reasonable. We will definitely consider using him again in the future for our home projects. Thanks again, Jaime!!!
I am the owner of two duplexes. I had a bad experience with a previous contractor, and called Mario and explained the situation to him. He made a really bad situation turn into a very positive situation. I hired Edgewood Remodeling to install laminated flooring in three bedrooms. I was on a timeline to get this project completed in a hurry so I could rent my duplex out and get the highest rent possible. Edgewood Remodeling worked at a high pace and completed my flooring project in one day, and did a excellent job. This is the second time I have hired Edgewood Remodeling and the results were amazing. Next time I need anything done at my house I will definitely call Edgewood Flooring. Thanks Michele
I found Luke Carr Construction on thumbtack when searching for a contractor to paint the trim on our 19 unit complex. Luke did a fantastic job on our property. I've worked with numerous contractors over the years and I have to say I've never found one better than Luke. He takes pride in his work and aims to please the customer. I'm now using him for a bathroom remodel and other projects...he can do it all! Tony Pezze
Nationwide Secure did the tile flooring and sink installation for my bathroom. By far, they have been the most responsive and professional company out of all contractors I have hired. From time of thumbtack post to job completion was one week, and throughout, Nationwide Secure was straightforward and an overall pleasure to work with. I could not be happier with my finished bathroom. My initial bathroom setup was a bit awkward, but Robert did some creative work with the tiles to make the finished product look good. During the work, there was also some dry rot on the walls that he removed free of charge, just to do a thorough and complete job. The end product was stunning. Thanks Robert!
We had our floors dine in January 2012 by Common Sense. The house that had original red oak (blond) wood flooring with considerable staining (most likely cat urine) throughout. So many boards were damaged that replacing them would've been so costly that Eric recommended we have them sanded and stained a darker color. We are very happy with the way they turned out- it looks beautiful and most of the stains are no longer visible- people compliment us on the floors all the time. It was a very good solution to a big problem. My only complaint was it seemed very expensive to us and there was not much wiggle room on the price. They were fast and worked with our tight timeline to get it done before we moved in.
Sergio Flores was fantastic. He came to give me an estimate the same day I called. His bid was very fair and he started the repair to my bamboo flooring the very next day. His crew worked into the night to finish the job in one day. I also asked him to bid on my fence repair and the exterior painting on my home. He is working on my fence today. I like that he bids the labor and material separately. He is easy to communicate with (I don't speak Spanish). I would definitely use him for all of my future projects. I have already referred him to my neighbor for her fence repair. When you find a contractor that can handle various projects, is prompt and honest, I hold on to them. I am willing to share him once he finishes my projects. Mary Malone 760-450-6215
Ray drew the plans for a remodel of my home last year. His quote was significantly below that of contractors, his work was accurate, and he followed through on his word. I would use him in the future and recomend you give him a call for your plans.
Rob did a great job. Had to have some R & R done on a section of hardwood floor due to water damage which resulted in having to sand and re stain the whole down stairs floor to make everything blend in after the replacement boards were installed. Rob is a pro and he knows hard wood floors and is a perfectionist. He even helped guide us in right direction of choosing a good stain color to fit the house. It looks fantastic now. Rob is a hard worker, punctual and has a great personality and is easy to work with. Would highly recommend his services. Will use him again when I need to tackle in redoing my upstairs flooring! Support your local independent business owner.
Chris made a custom table for us. it was stained to match the existing and we couldn't be happier
After purchasing our home in summer 2012, we've been doing a complete reno of the place on and off. We have had 4 different contractor companies work on flooring, painting, kitchen, small bathroom, and, finally, the master bathroom. The last project was done by Remcon Design. Honestly, I've been so disappointed with the previous jobs that the contractors have done on our place that I was very weary and not expecting much from the "new people." However, they sure proved me wrong! Staying in touch and communication with Tarja and Rene were outstanding! All of the concerns were addressed promptly and without any delay. I am very much of an OCD person when it comes down to cleanliness, and they did their best to try and accommodate my pet peeve. The job was done professionally, in a timely manner. Clean site afterwords and pleasant people to deal with! Thank you, Remcon Design, Roy, Tarja, Rene, and others for the wonderful job you did! I shall definitely use your services in the future!

My name is Ron Schieberl, and I have 30 years of experience running my own construction company. I retired three years ago, but would like to get back into management/remodeling/maintenance at some level, using my skills learned from the last 30 years. I am 60 years old, am in excellent health without limitations, do not drink and have never taken drugs nor smoked. I can pass any background test and do not have a criminal record. Abilities: 1. Read plans 2. Design 3. Have a clean driving record and a nice vehicle and am fully insured 4. I can do all phases of construction. 5. Day-to-day operations 6. People skills and skills managing employees, organizational skills and working within a scheduled time frame and bringing in projects on budget. I work well with people and have a lot of patience. 7. Safety I wrote my companys OSHA safety manual and conducted all the tailgate meetings. 8. Efficiency 9. Customer service 10. Working with and scheduling subs 11. Can personally do maintenance of tenant space, property, et cetera 12. Obtaining permits 13. Endless list of people who can work and have construction experience 14. I have a list of subs for any phase of work. 15. I have physically worked most trades throughout my career and still have a complete set of tools for most residential work. I speak Spanish fairly well, especially for construction work. I have great health and strength. 16. I have the computer, internet, texting skills that have to do with this type of work. I love to organize and look for ways to improve things. I have no problem being available 24 hours a day for emergencies. In tenant improvement, I am very understanding of an individuals complaint and the need to get it fixed, balanced with looking out for the owner and costs to get it done. I take pride in the things I accomplish and dont settle for mediocrity. 17. I have experience managing either small or very large projects with all of the organizational skills and trade knowledge to get the job done. 18. From all of the years of having a renovation company, I have mastered the ability to work in a persons home or office, while they are living there, protecting their items, cleaning up makeshift kitchens while work is being performed. I have foot protectors for the work crew. I instructed all of my employees how to operate in a persons home or office with appropriate behaviour, no smoking, no drinking, no foul language and being conscientious of things around them, safety and leaving things as good or better than they found them, respecting the owners privacy and directing questions to the supervisor rather than interacting with the tenants. Experience: 1. Custom homes 2. Additions 3. Remodels 4. Make ready for homes, apartments and commercial properties 5. Commercial project manager and for my latest project, I ran four trades and up to a 75-man crew to convert 170 luxury apartments into time shares for Wyndham in Mission Valley in San Diego 6. I prefer to not live on the property, but will relocate, if necessary, and will consider housing as part of the compensation. 7. I am interested in property management and have experience condo/apartment maintenance, collecting rents, advertising for and interviewing new tenants, showing the properties, serving notices and evictions when needed. When I did this, I lived off site near the units, but I was a phone call away and always answer my phone, texts and emails. 8. I will also consider part time. I presently maintain two commercial buildings in San Diego which take a monthly inspection and doing any maintenance. This results in only a few hours a month. 9. I semi retired in 2007 and have become a specialist, working for developers for code violation corrections. I get the inspectors on our side, take care of the plans and permits, go to any special meetings for project permission and oversee the work to correct the violations and get the owners out of most fines that were attached to the violation. I know all trades in construction and have a thorough knowledge of all codes and exceptions to the codes in the state of California, which are usually tougher than the national codes. I received all of my work by word of mouth from satisfied customers. Some of the projects I have done over the years 1971 to 1978: Work in Europe (England and Holland): A. In London, I renovated a large warehouse to become offices and living quarters in Bromley, Kent. B. In Hollingbourne, England, I replaced dry rot in a 43-room home and oversaw the maintenance of this property and the one in Bromley for a year. C. In Holland, I turned a large farmhouse into a two story commercial property. Work in Europe (Italy): A. I renovated a twenty-seven-room, four-hundred-year old villa on a property called Poggio Secco outside of Grassina (Florence). I was in charge of the project and worked with a 30 to 40-man crew for two years. We installed a heating system that was a copper piping system in concrete floors that heated up the floor itself. We removed over sixty windows and shutter systems form all exterior walls and remade them to match the ones built 100 years ago. We replaced all of the panels and all of the wiring. We replaced all dry rot in the building and replaced hand-hewn beams to match the original. We built a rain catch system for drinking water. We completely replastered all exterior surfaces and had artists repaint murals and window frame vines and family emblems at each window. Gas lines were installed throughout for a propane system and the furnace in the basement. While there, I helped run the cantina and oversaw the harvesting of grapes, olives and fruit trees on the 400 acres that surrounded the villa. B. I spent six months in Rome and built the #4 rated disco in Rome. This was a 10,000-sq.ft. warehouse that we turned into a wine and beer bar and pasta restaurant. I ran this project and had a twenty-man crew I oversaw. C. Numerous other properties were renovated during this time period of 1971 to 1978 in Florence and Portofino over an additional two-and-a-half-year period. These were usually farm houses or animal stalls that we turned into small villas. The reason for this is no new construction was allowed, so if you wanted a new living space, you looked to what was already on a foundation, even if it was a horse barn. I had to work with the Belle Arte in Florence who would come out to inspect the work I did and make sure everything was done properly, down to the right paint color on the newly-built houses, matching what was on the old original houses. Work in Houston, Texas (1978 to 1985 and again in 2009): A. Worked in a cabinet shop as a lead fabricator and became the foreman within a month. B. For five years, I had a shop with a dozen employees, where we built the first mass-produced redwood lattice panels, pre fab gazebos and modular wood decking (my creation) to Sears and most major lumberyards. During this time, I had two companies - Cedar Creations and U.S. Wood. C. Built and remodeled many homes D. Built a mobile home park in Houston, Texas that had 200 spaces, where we began with a dirt lot and made all roads and infrastructures E. Built a 20,000-sq.ft. research facility for A. F. Tubescope Research in Houston, Texas F. In Abilene, Texas, I developed and built a 99-home development. I did all of the permitting and went to the city permitting meetings for approval and development for the project. I built the swimming pool, office, usage room building, all infrastructures. I did privacy fencing and eleven model homes. This was a recent project when I returned to Texas for a year to work for an old employer/developer. This was 2009. Work in Wyoming 2010: A. Reworked pumps and other machinery in six oil wells in Jeffrey City, Wyoming that were drilled in 1929 and only producing one third its potential. We got the six wells up and running to maximum potential and the developer I worked for sold these for millions above his investment. Work in California 1986 to present: A. In 1986, I had the opportunity to relocate to San Diego, California and build three custom homes. Since then, I have built many more custom homes and countless remodels and additions, as well as landscape and hardscape, decks, fencing. B. I converted an apartment complex in Casa de Oro, California into individual condos that sold within a few months of completion. I worked as the main contractor with my crew and numerous subs. Job was done on schedule and within budget. C. I converted two apartment complexes into individual condos, adding a laundry room and second bedroom to each unit. I got all of the permits, licensing, et cetera. I was the supervisor for the contractor/owner of the project. I supervised my own crews and numerous other sub contractors. Job was done ahead of schedule and on budget. Units were luxury units and all sold in less than six months. D. I was the job supervisor building one of the largest Messianic churches in the United States in Calabasas, California. I worked with the crew and subs and obtained all permits and plans. E. I built a water filtration and juice store in Santa Barbara as the first for a chain of stores. This was a $250,000 project, completed in seven weeks and on budget. I did all of the high-tech filtration systems and built a dispensing wall for thirty different juices. F. I was the supervisor on a project converting 171 luxury apartments into Wyndham Timeshares. There was a crew of 48 to 75 people and two shifts. I did four sub contracted trades for the main contractor and owner with Wyndham Timeshares. This was my last commercial project done in 2007 in Mission Hills San Diego, California. G. I built three custom homes for the developer I worked with throughout the years and 27 more luxury homes over a 25-year period for this developer in Texas and California. H. I ran a make-ready, tenant improvement business with Apache Construction for numerous apartment and commercial properties and town home developments for the HOA. I ran this part of the business for five years in San Diego, California. I. I did hundreds of remodel jobs on homes and condos in Texas and California over a thirty-year period. Many of these were done in La Jolla, California. These remodels averaged from $150,000 to $500,000. J. Since 1987, I have had my own business and employees. I ran sales, subs and most phases of the business. K. I worked as an interior designer for many of my customers for whom I built homes and remodeled. This included paint colors, kitchen, bathrooms, wall coverings, flooring, furnishings and art work. Personal information: A. Married forty years, three children and three grandchildren B. I love anything that has to do with the outdoors, hiking, walking, horseback riding. Favorite vacation spots are Mammoth and Colorado and Italy. I have traveled so much in my life, I am ready to stay put for awhile. C. I love to read, listen to music and love to drive. I love road trips.
