I was in urgent need for a handyman, as a large part of a wall, insulation & floor in my storage closet was damaged by my leaking water heater. I decided to try Thumbtack and was very happy to see that Arisel from AA Cardenas reached out to me and said he can start work immediately. He was very prompt in replying, and very easy to reach on phone & text before, during and after the work was completed. When he came, he assessed the work to be done, gave me a very clear outline of materials needed and the labor cost. He told me he could finish the work in 2 days, which is exactly what my deadline was, and he did finish all the work in 2 days flat! He offered to go and pick up all the material from the hardware store, and worked till late on the first day to make sure he got as much work done as possible. He was very professional in putting up new insulation, patch sheet rock, applying texture to blend with existing wall texture and paint the area. He always cleaned up before he left and was very open to me asking questions about various things he was working on. Arisel was very nice to talk to as well, and he was accommodating to all my questions. He even came back 4 days later, at my request, to put floor molding. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with the work Arisel did, and would definitely hire him again.
Ricardo methodically replaced all the parts in the tank to try and figure out the problem. In the end, determined it was the toilet itself. Did a great job. He was generous enough to try and not take money for labor but it was worth paying for all the effort. He was also happy to come in, despite the heavy rain.
Darin was available quickly and got the job done well at a reasonable price. He was a nice guy, trustworthy, and a hard worker. I will be using him again.
Hired HP Handyman Services to repair some minor plumbing and electrical problems. The contractor was punctual, knowledgeable, and was able to make the needed repairs in less than 2 hours. Cost was $173, which seemed a little high based on the time involved, but he did provide some materials to do the work, just no itemized cost for labor and materials to determine the hurly rate. The fact that he worked on a Sunday and his professional attitude would lead me to hire this contractor again.
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.
Very good worker. I would definitely call him for future work. I was very satisfied
Mr. Hartwell demonstrated explicit knowledge and understanding of his ability to perform the job at hand. Not only did he demonstrated his ability in his work, he also demonstrated his ability to explain in explicit details the different alternatives there were in solving the problem. From the end results as well as the cost in material and labor for each method "prior to performing any work or committing to any method. His work rivals that of many contractors charging twice as much per hour. I would recommend him to anyone needing door work done.
Came for free estimate, let me buy the equipment to reduce cost of labor, and fixed our broken garage door on time. Would definitely recommend him!
Jasper was communicative, transparent about costs and labor, and an overall nice human being to work with! He scoped out the project with us onsite, completed our project incredibly quickly, and good-naturedly accommodated our many last minute thoughts. Hope to be able to hire him again!
Installation of a new kitchen sink faucet, dishwasher, and fridge. Gerardo and his helper were professional, clean, and took great care not to dirty my pristine new cabinets or mar my floor. They thoroughly tested the installation to ensure that I wouldn't experience leaks after they left, and Gerardo communicated quite clearly. Materials were roughly equivalent to the labor cost, so I got a little bit of sticker shock on the materials side, but that's just because I'm ignorant of how pricey plumbing materials can be. Not Gerardo's fault that plumbing materials are expensive!
Keian was amazing to work with! Fast response, great communication, and did a wonderful job! Super nice guy and overall would HIGHLY recommend him for a multitude of reasons. I'll be reaching out to him for future work 100%. Thanks so much again Keian.
We had a great experience with Mike. He was very honest and his prices were reasonable. Mike quoted us on labor only and gave us receipts for everything he bought. He showed up on time every day and finished the job in the quoted time (1 week). He was extremely responsive and kept up with our changing requests in terms of what we wanted. We will definitely go to Mkke when we want to do another project.
Ivan was very pleasant to work with and completed numerous jobs with expertise and professional care. He was also reasonably priced, on time, and worked steadily.
My husband and I worked with Keith to renovate 2 garden areas in front of our house. We didn’t want to break concrete, so we had the challenge of making the best of the areas we had. Keith did an amazing job! We had some idea of what we wanted, and Keith provided excellent suggestions and brought lots of great ideas to the table too. Throughout the process Keith communicated extremely well, always managing expectations around time, cost of labor and cost of materials. He was very clear about his estimations and what we should budget for different parts of the job. Keith gave us the option of coming to a local nursery with him so we could pick shrubs, flowers and trees together. His horticultural knowledge really shone though, and we ended up with a good mix of perennials for major features and annuals to provides some varied interest. Part of our project involved toning down the look of an imposing chimney at the front of the house. Keith built a custom arbor and seating area that framed the chimney perfectly. Everything now looks well-designed and thought through. We’ve since started working with Keith to address our backyard too, so it’s fair to say that we’re so happy that we’d work with him again.
Brandon was super responsive and was able to put together an estimate for work to replace the tub in my condo. He spent the time to walk me through some of the options and help me to understand what the trade-offs were going with one option or the other. After we spoke, Brandon put together a detailed estimate with a thorough breakdown of costs for parts and labor - with competitive pricing. Did I mention he did this on a Saturday? Top notch professionalism and work ethic!
Mr. Sweetin was very professional in both designing and carrying out the complete bathroom remodel that I had been imagining for years. As with any remodel of an older home, you can never truly calculate what is behind the sheetrock, but Mr. Sweetin took things in stride. Although we needed to make a few alterations to our original plan, he communicated with me in a professional manner the required changes to our plan and sought approval prior to incurring additional time, labor or expenses. These changes had minimal impact on the overall timeline of the project and made us very happy with the completed project. These alterations showed that Mr. Sweetin was not interested in just getting the job done, but that we as homeowners would take pride in his attention to detail and the quality of workmanship provided. Now we have a walk-in shower and bathroom that leaves us with plenty of room, counter space and awesome tiled cubbies. The pictures provided show before and almost upon completion. As you can tell, the difference is evident and refreshing.
I called Kevin today and he came out to my house today to take a look at my project, which is installing tile in the closet under the stairs. He thoroughly explained his plan, what he needed to complete it, the approximate time it would take and how much he expected for labor. He also estimated the cost of the materials that he agreed to pick up. He was very friendly. He will be doing the project tomorrow, but so far things are off to a good start.
I wanted to expand my driveway by 100 square feet. I talked to a few contractors and some came out and gave a bid and others blew me off. Mario was different from the rest. He set up an appointment with me for the next day and he showed up on time. He quoted me a price which I eventually accepted. We set a date for him to do the work. He called me and said he could do it a day earlier. I said great. He completed the job in two days and it looks great. His workmanship was very good. He took out 6" of dirt, put in 1-2" of gravel and pour 4-5" of concrete. He matched the expansion joints up with the existing driveway and it looks great. I would heartily recommend Mario. From my experience I would say he is honest, trustworthy with high integrity.
I hired Mike to install new mirrored closet doors and remove the old ones. Initially, I contacted him through a recommendation on the NextDoor site. He then contacted me by phone and we set an appointment to meet so he could give me an estimate for the work to be done. He came by the at the scheduled time, and we chatted in depth about the doors I had chosen (which he offered to pick up as part of the estimate) and shared ideas. After he left, I received a written estimate in my email within a few hours. I signed it and emailed it back and then set an appointment to have it done. As a note: he has a special Handyman's license so no job can be over $500 total for labor and materials. I found him to be very efficient and thorough, extremely friendly and an excellent communicator. He did a great job!!! I definitely plan to hire him again in the near future for a "Honey-Do" list and be happy to give him a future reference
He showed up on time, and completed the work as promised within the agreed upon time. And he works on Sundays . It was hard for me to find contractors that are available on Sundays and was very happy with his service. Will use him again for sure.
