My house needed several nothings done, picket fence gate falling apart, painting and some other minor things. Thumbtack was new to me and I figured I would give it a try. The app speaks for itself, but what I found interesting was Rafael (Rafi) kept coming up page after page for all the jobs I needed. I reached out to Rafi through the app and was contacted immediately. Rafi came the same day, walked him around the property and he made several suggestions that I would never have thought of. I hired Rafi on the spot and 2 days later Rafi and his crew were at my house at 8 am. After getting to know Rafi I could tell he strives for perfection. He works on your house like it’s his own. His crew was at my house every day typically around 8 in the morning and did not leave until 6 in the evening. My wife and I we’re thoroughly impressed. Rafi and his crew replaced several damaged post, replaced 2 wooden fences, painted and to top it off removed my driveway and back door patio and installed all beautiful brick driveway and patio, a dream my wife and I have had for years. He jackhammered the old asphalt and concrete and created a herringbone pattern that is stunning. I still can’t believe this is my house. His quote came back extremely reasonable and was always available if I needed to speak with him. I feel lucky to have met him. My past experiences with Handy Man’s have not been the best because they just don’t show up and won’t take on small jobs. Rafi did exactly what he promised and actually over delivered which my wife and I are extremely grateful for. Thank you so much Rafi and Lior. You completely made are curb appeal so much better. I will be calling you again shortly to start other projects we talked about. Jason &by AlisonJul 8, 2020VerifiedRafael Handyman Services's reply

Rodent and Animal Removal
Rafael and his team did everything exactly as I had asked. They were punctual, professional, and took care of my pigeon problem. Being an animal lover myself, I was delighted with how gentle he was removing (and relocating) all the birds. Highly recommend!May 16, 2020VerifiedRafael Handyman Services's reply
John, it’s was so nice working with you as well! Enjoy!
Roof Repair or Maintenance
last weekend i heard animal foot steps in the attic. When I went up into the attic, I found rat dropping and a cold air draft. I realized there must a hole in the roof. I went on Google search, and found the 'Thumbtack' website. While searching for 'roof repair' and 'handyman', resulted in a few companies available to do the repair. I selected 4 companies for quotes. One of them was Rafael Handyman Services. He replied quickly and made appointment to come. Upon arrival, he quickly went to the attic, and then up onto the roof, to assess the repair requirements. He was very detailed, and pointed out that there were many holes on my roof and some holes were big enough for larger animals. During our conversation, I can tell Rafael was very dedicated to his craft and passionate about his work. We made appointment to start the repair the next day. During our discussion, I also asked him about possible drywall repairs. He said his group can also do drywall repair. We added the drywall repair, painting as part of our contract. He offered a quote which was very reasonable and fair, and I accepted. The next day, his brother, Yossi, and coworker, Miguel, arrived at 10AM. I greeted them at the door, and we discussed the repair work. Yossi informed me that Rafael already talked to him and Miguel about the repairs and they knew what needed to be done. I was impressed their preparation awareness. They immediately started working on the drywall repairs. There were 5 separate areas that needed drywall repair. Yossi and Miguel were very efficient and detailed. They had the drywall patched up by 12:30. By this time, Rafael came and the 3 of them proceeded to start the work on the roof repair. First, they went upstairs into the attic to locate the holes. They spent a good 30 minutes, locating the holes. Afterwards, Miguel proceeded to go onto the roof with a bucket of concrete to patch the holes on my clay tiles. While Miguel was patching the roof, Yossi starting sanding down the drywall and started preparation for painting. After they finished work at 6PM or so I get a phone call from Rafael's assistant, Lior, asking me about the work quality. I told her I was very impressed with their work. They were hard workers and dedicated. The walls looked like new, and I no longer feel any air draft in the attic. I was a happy customer. I am very happy with Rafael, Yossi, and Miguel work. I highly recommend them for their professionalism, high quality work and will be calling Rafael for future home remodeling work.May 21, 2020VerifiedRafael Handyman Services's reply
