I did a lot of research on various sites for someone who could paint my master bedroom in our RENTAL apartment. Keyword is rental. I wanted new paint, but didn't want to invest a huge amount of money into cosmetic upgrades since my husband and I don't plan to be here long, long term. After an exhaustive search and even a few vendors who came by and gave really high quotes, I hired Albino. He was great. The price was moderate, but fair compared to the other quotes I got. He brought someone with him to assist with the painting and they were so quick - but thorough and very professional and friendly. I was so happy with Albino and would use him again for other handy work around the apartment.
Matt is awesome! Super personable and does great work! He follows his word and can make your vision a reality. I showed him some pictures of a wedding altar I wanted to build (in order to hold vintage doors) and he executed exactly what I was looking for! I will definitely have Matt back for my next project! I highly recommend you hiring Matt for any handyman or carpentry needs.
Ricardo was our handyman while we lived in Belmont, Redwood City and even when we moved to Alamo, California. He was an excellent carpenter, handyman and Jack-of-all-trades ... always accommodating and cheerful. He was punctual, reliable and very creative in home repair challenges...always thought "outside the box". Ricardo was always a pleasure to have around while working on projects in our homes. We wish we could have taken him with us when we moved to Eagle, Idaho -- we really miss him!!!
Derrick really worked wonders considering the non-standard existing door frame that I had to work with. The work looks great and I very pleased with the results. I would recommend Definitive Installations for any finishing carpentry work.
Jasper did an excellent job of designing and building my computer desk and storage unit. On our first meeting he was able to translate the description of what I wanted into a drawing with measurements. On his next visit he confirmed the measurements and proposed workarounds for dealing with challenges such as the room's molding as well as taking a paint sample to match the color of the unit with the room. The results were better than I expected. The unit truly looks built-in with molding around the top that matches the molding in the room. Though it's a floor to ceiling unit, it does not feel overbearing due to the design, color and seamless attachment to walls and ceiling. He was easy to work with when making adjustments in order to accommodate placement of my computer equipment. When I specified what I wanted, I got exactly that. Jason is an extremely competent woodworker and very fast executor. I would highly recommend him.
Nick is worth his weight in gold. He painted my kitchen but also did some other jobs for me. He is also quite the handyman, carpenter, trouble shooter and he is proficient in his job. I would definitely hire him again.
When Juan and I began to negotiate the cost of the work that I needed done, he quoted me an hourly rate. I balked at this; stating that I preferred to pay by the job - and that way, he would be free to work as quickly or as slowly as he pleased. He stated to me, in a very cool and yet confident way: "Let me explain to you who I am..." He went on to talk to me about the integrity that he tries to honor; and the business that he is trying to build. He assured me that he is honorable and hard working; and that he would never charge me what he was not due. My soul felt that he should be trusted...and what an gift it has been to experience the quality of his work, his kindness, his business acumen, and the wisdom of his words. He is a licensed contractor, an honorable man, and a master of his craft.
I only have good things to say about Jose and his crew. He completely transformed our master bedroom. We will definitely be calling Jose for our next project.
Didi has been excellent in guiding us through the master bed/bath remodel process and has us on track to create a spa like experience in our home.
Frank was great. He came out ahead of doing the job just to make sure the price he quoted was fair and reasonable, and then did the job when he said he would and in the time he thought it would take. Both he and his son were professional, neat, and very skilled. I'm very satisfied both with Frank as well as with Thumbtack.
If we could give Wise Stage Remodeling more stars than 5, we would! We hired Wise Stage Remodeling to finish a very difficult and messy remodel in San Francisco (single family house). A previous contractor messed the remodel up beyond belief and left it in shambles, while we were out of town. None of the new contractors were even willing to consider taking this job and we were desperate. Sergey from Wise Stage Remodeling responded to our request via Thumbtack. He gave us a very reasonable estimate and timeframe to finish the project. Sergey and his team (especially Arthur, his carpenter, who's amazing with cabinets, doors, tiling) were extremely diligent and hardworking. They remodeled the kitchen from top to bottom, as well as finished remodeling the rest of messy unfinished projects of all levels of difficulty throughout the house. Sergey and Arthur pulled us out of a very messy situation and made the impossible possible. They were both incredibly responsive and accommodating throughout the entire construction process: hardworking, honest, and polite guys. Their attention to detail and ability to face our complex construction issues alleviated a lot of stress and pain on our part. We simply lucked out w/hiring Wise Stage Remodeling. We've been through a number of remodels with a few of our properties in San Francisco, and never had a more pleasant experience with the contractors. We would absolutely, without a doubt, recommend hiring Wise State in a heartbeat!
Sightline Builders, Inc., did a full kitchen renovation for us as well as partial renovations of the master bath and second bath. The results were fantastic. Sightline goes well beyond the norm, providing not only stellar workmanship, but also an attention to detail rarely seen today. Everyone who has viewed the renovations asks for a business card. And, we sold our home in just 7 days, thanks to the impeccable workmanship.
Alex Rodas is great to work with and a skilled carpenter
Wow - amazing work. Tomas built a deck for me in my backyard in Marin. The deck is just beautiful - we love it. Additionally, Tomas and his crew were on-time, pleasant and professional.
Igor has been working in my backyard on an in-law unit and he is definitely a master at his craft. It's coming along great and his workers as well as himself have been very respectful of my property and considerate of all my neighbors. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs anything done to their household or property.
We have known John for over 30 years and can recommend him without hesitation. We have hired him for many jobs around our home. He is a skilled carpenter, a trustworthy and honest businessman, he is fair and punctual and a really nice guy.
Noel was the most professional, kind and punctual Contractor we met during our extensive search and easily the best out of the 10 or so we interviewed. He managed a team of exceptional workers who completed a full master bath remodel quickly and painlessly. He was easy to get ahold of via texts or calls and was always on time. Noel was a wonderful resource for advice and recommendations. We love him and plan to use him for any project here to come.
He is very creative and built a garden glass house that we both designed. He did not have to use one nail. He is a master carpenter. It is better to pay a flat fee than by the hour.
Juan did a renovation of my master suite, including bathroom. This included plumbing work, a new shower pan, tile work, painting, and installing a new closet door and baseboards. Juan and his crew were very nice to work with and professional. I would definitely recommend them!
