Our new rental home warranty plumbing coverage does not include tile work, but the plumber they dispatched needs a bigger opening behind the mixer on the tile shower wall to confirm the source of the leak. I hired Arisel from AA Cardenas Construction to help me with the tile work. I would have hired him for the plumbing work itself if I had known him earlier and had got to choose my own technician under warranty. From the get-go responding to my Thumbtack request for quote to finishing the job, Arisel had been very responsive, professional, friendly, punctual and helpful. The job was beautifully done! While I was writing the check, knowing the job is being contracted to Home Warranty company Arisel still took the initiative to inspect the leak checking the ceiling downstairs and share with me what he thought the problem might be. With him pointing out, I was convinced that he was spot on! Arisel is apparently a hard working, honest and friendly young man! I will definitely hire him again for future jobs. I highly recommend Arisel.

We originally met with Arisel to discuss installing a few electrical outlets in our new home. I had some other larger projects in mind that I ran by him as well (expand a doorway, painting, reno of one of the bathrooms). After talking with Arisel I asked him to give me a quote for everything and we ultimately ended up going with him for all of the projects. In the midst of the work we ran into some other snags, including a huge plumbing issue. Arisel was able to help us with this, again at a pricing that was hard to beat. Overall Arisel was highly competent, friendly, and hardworking. He stayed until the late hours of the evening on a few occasions to make sure that the job was done. I highly recommend working with him and his guys. We had a great experience.

Craig Huffer did an amazing job for us installing a 240v charger for our new ev. He responded quickly to my request and came over within the hour to discuss what needed to be done and give us a quote. He explained what the job would entail thoroughly and was able to return to do the installation when I needed it done. He is meticulous in his work and pays attention to cosmetic details as well (finished off everything so we could barely see any of the wiring.) In the end he charged exactly what he quoted - since he is incredibly knowledgeable about what he does, there were no surprises. It was a pleasure working with Craig and we intend to hire him for any future projects we may attempt in the future. You simply could not find a better electrician than Craig!

I had a previous electrician come a week prior to calling Craig, that individual could not figure out the problem and didnt even bother to give me an estmate or relate to me what I could do to resolve my problem. Craig came out gave me a quote. He explained to me what issues he was facing (not an easy task) and he said he could fix my electrical disaster. He was fantastic! He had the job done in a few hours and the cost was very reasonable. I will recommend him to everyone and hire him for all future projects that may arise. Thank you Craig, you are awesome!!

He was honest about how much work actually needed to be done. Other electricians were telling me I needed to do a bigger repair than necessary. It might have just been different perspectives on the problem and not intentional dishonesty on their part. However, his repair suggestion actually matched what PG&E told me when they came out to do a diagnosis. It saved me tons of money, which I appreciated as a single parent on a teacher's salary.

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.

Matthew Kelly is hardworking and honest. He strives to make the job go as well as possible. After other contractors said no or did not return my calls, he responded quickly on the weekend, and he completed the job in a timely manner. Matthew's operation is lean and responsive. He is pleasant to work with and has my recommendation.

Ben is a very thoughtful professional person, I hired him for install washer and dryer machine in my new house, and he gave me a very good solution of how to put washer and dryer in our small laundry room, I am so pleased I don't need to place dryer out of the laundry room or cut wall. He is also responsible and patient to explain everything to me. He did excellent job and make everything perfectly working. He is also an electrical engineering and I am going to hire him in the future time if I need. Thank you Ben.

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!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Craig. He brings the Aloha vibe and is the nicest person I've worked with. Craig is an expert electrician and took less than 10 minutes to diagnose and perform the replacement to my GFCI socket that was semi-working. Craig even taught me how to use the multimeter and patiently explained how a daisy chain setup with GFCI works. He helped upgrade the other bathrooms to have independent GFCI outlets, making it now convenient to reset the switch from each bathroom. Craig is my new go-to guy!

Young is the best!! He showed up for the inspection with his business card and license in hand. Throughout the entire process he was full of incredible information to help us improve other areas of our home (many of these weren't even projects that an electrician would do; he was just genuinely concerned with the safety and quality of our home). We hired him to replace a very old bathroom fan. He did so quickly and flawlessly. He checked in throughout the process to explain his work and ensure we understood exactly what was being done. We already have new jobs we'll be calling him for soon. We highly recommend YCK Electric!!!

Kevin immediately responded to my frantic search for an electrician at 8:30pm after we lost all electrical power in our kitchen ( no lights, appliances, refrigerator or oven) He gave me his phone number and we discussed the problem and probable solution. He agreed to come to our house on short notice the next morning. He arrived on time and was obviously very professional as well as being very knowledgeable and personable. Kevin resolved the problem and then took care of two more unrelated electrical problems. I can recommend Kevin enthusiastically and with no reservations. If I could give him six stars, I would.

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!

I got initially a few reply on Thumbtack and I had 2 electricians check out the work to be done and got a quote. Majestic Electric overall was the most professional and explained every things that needed to be done. We agreed on a time for the following week and as expected Nasar came that day and right away started to work on time. I checked the work during the day and I could see the progress. Nasar was extremely professional during the while project and keeping me informed -especially when he had to turn off for a few minutes the electricity. The job was completed the following day because of my old electrical panel (nothing wrong with Nasar’s job) and 20 minutes after his return my new NEMA 14-50 plug was installed and fully working in the garage. Nasar took the time to clean up the place he worked on. I will definitely re-hire Nasar due to his professionalism and the quality of the work delivered: I am posting this review one week later after using the electrical work he did every day and I had zero issue. So great electrician who on top of that is extremely professional.

He is a very qualified electrician and I felt he quoted me a fair price for the project. I think he had my best interest in mind regarding the scope of the work. He is a nice guy as well. However, I believed that I would only have to paint afterward and unfortunately I had to redo a bit of the drywall patching so that it was even and blended in with the rest of the wall. (fixing mud/compound, sanding, knockdown/texturing) I'm not sure if he rushed it, was a little inexperienced with it, or what. I had zero experience, watched a handful of youtube videos and bought some stuff at Home Depot and finished it. I would use him again for electrical work but would get a better idea of what the finished project would be next time. 5 stars for his electrical work, 3 for the drywall work, averaged to 4 stars seems fair.

Nasar is a very responsible person and his work is professional. He did a great job on installing the pendant lights on our sloped ceiling and made a new outlet for our TV. He knew what he was doing and always went with customers' best option instead of just doing the easy and quick job. Besides, I am thankful that he kept the working area very clean so I didn't need to spend lots of time cleaning. We love him and his work and will definitely hire him again!
