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.

Noel did a beautiful grotto at my house. My family and friends were very impressed with the work he did. His attention to detail is excellent. If you need carpentry work or any handy work he is the person. Happy Customer May M.

I got a special order: french door from a very good manufacturer, and fortunately found an excellent carpenter, Derrick Hartwell, to install the door, which required a lot of adjustments. The door was installed perfectly. In addition, I asked if it is possible to adjust the kitchen cabinet doors, which my "regular" carpenter could not adjust properly, and Derrick did it successfully. He is relatively young, but very skilled and professional. I am planning to hire him for all my carpentry from now on.

I hired Jasper from My Apartment Is Better Than Yours. I think they did a terrific job at a very reasonable price. I'm really pleased that I decided to go with them. I had a number of unusual carpentry tasks to complete when I moved to my new place. The windows were old and the wood was irregular and moldy, so the wood around the antique glass panels needed to be replaced. I was told those windows hadn't been opened in 40 years, but now they work perfectly and you'd never know the wood wasn't original. Also, several doorways lacked doors when I moved in, and were unusual rounded shapes cut into the stucco without doorframes. Jasper was able to make me custom doors with antique iron-wrought handles, and they look awesome. I also needed threshholds worked on, cabinets put up, new benches made for my roof deck, a custom projector and screen put in, antique chandeliers installed, a lock repaired... and I'm probably forgetting one or two things. They are in the process of putting the finishing touches on my humidor (they had to build me custom legs for it), and it's going to look spectacular. Anyway, they knocked it all out of the park. They were prompt and clean and didn't cause much of a disturbance despite all the work they were doing. They'll be my go-to for anything I need done in the future. I definitely recommend them.

Hired David, very honest in the quote and explained what needed to be done. I needed some baseboards replaced in my foyer, and the baseboards in the living room and dining room needed to be properly installed since my HOA sent their installers and they were terrible (HOA had to replace my hardwoods and the installers laid out the floor fine but baseboards looked terrible). He made a visit and inspected the areas, gave a quote and showed up at scheduled day/time, got to work and a few hours later the place was good to go....great job. I believe he is based in Southbay but covers the entire Bay Area. Any general carpentry/handyman type stuff, that you can't handle or just want to get done, I would recommend him.

Conn did a great job fixing and replacing issues we had with our crown mounding, baseboards, and doors/jambs/casing. He has great workmanship and skill, and he very much cares how the finished product looks. I will hire him again for any carpentry work in the future. We've used several contractors on our fixer upper over the past 7 years, and he is by far the best we've used.

Working with Bay Wide was a great experience. They were on top of communication and getting me info/quotes in a timely manner and their pricing was reasonable. They were great when they came to measure for my carpentry project- helped point out ideas and come up with solutions. The variety of skills they possess is great, they helped me demo, build shelves, paint, add electrical etc! They went above and beyond what I asked them to do and the end result is fabulous! I will absolutely contact them for projects in the future. Thank you!

Ricky did a great job adding some additional storage and a workstation in our garage/laundry area, which required re-framing, painting, and some carpentry work. He was easy to work with, a great communicator, able to do the work in a timely manner and we are very happy with the results. We would hire him again and recommend him highly!

Dermot was super responsive, quick on the job, and did excellent work! I needed my wooden bed frame trimmed and ready for paint - his work was precise and honestly it looked like the bed had come that way originally! Recommend to anyone needing wood work.

Todd is truly a seasoned handyman. I live in one of those turn of the century SF houses that need a lot of upkeep. So over the years I have worked with many tradesmen. It’s rarely that I find someone fully trained in so many skills. Todd primarily did carpentry work on this project. But I see him doing good work on electricals in future as well. He knows his stuff. Has all the tools. Is responsive, productive and has a good sense of taking each of the tasks to full completion. While he is at the very top end of the hourly rate for such professionals, I see value in that the lives on the next hill in our high-priced city and has earned all the relevant skills for the kinds of houses we have in San Francisco. I will continue to hire him as the project evolves.

We hired Kevin to reframe a door (taking it from a double- to single door). Kevin clearly thought through the process before beginning work, obviously cares very much about the quality of his finished product, and even came back to personally finish off a couple of initial minor imperfections in the finishing/painting process (done by a third party). Appreciate Kevin's thoughtfulness and dedication to getting the job done right/well.

Cesar has been working on our money pit with us since we bought it four years ago, helping with a long list of differed maintenance projects and sudden emergencies. These have included plumbing, electrical, carpentry and tile work inside and out. We were very lucky to find him. He is responsive, diligent, conscientious and his standard of workmanship is very high. On top of that he's a pleasure to have around. You won't find better.
