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.
I hired Cruz for a project with my company. We needed some custom work done for an upcoming conference. Cruz did a great job on my project. His craftsmanship was excellent, and his responsiveness was great. The final product was exactly what we wanted. He made sure we were 100% happy before being satisfied that his job was done. Would definitely hire him again.
Matthew has done a number of projects for me and my wife. Deck repair, built some custom planters for our back yard and a few odd jobs inside. Excellent service
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!!!
Vyron and his team were great. They remodeled a small guest house for us - flooring, ceiling, painting, plumbing, windows, cabinetry. It was a 3 day job. They always showed up on time, worked extremely hard, were professional and pleasant. Vyron is very focused on doing a quality job. He clearly has a lot of experience doing all types of remodeling projects, and offered several valuable suggestions. I would definitely use again.
Derrick is amazing! We needed help replacing our original side door to the garage and he went above to repair. He sent suggestions of reasonably priced doors and even picked them up for us (along with any materials we needed) from Home Depot while not charging for the pickup/dropoff! He was very cost conscious when buying the parts as well. You'd think replacing a door would be easy, but ours was old and needed casing and more detail work than your standard door. I asked if he'd help hang a couple heavy mirrors above the fireplace after he finished the door and he did a fantastic job measuring and making sure the mirrors were level, etc. while only putting one hole in the wall to hang!! He explained what he was doing and was even happy to move the mirrors around after he installed them! I'm so grateful to Thumbtack for putting me in touch with such a great carpenter! I've already referred him to some friends who want build in cabinets in their family rooms! So glad I got his info!
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 needed a complicated job done on my bathroom (removing texturization from walls and temporarily removing lighting, cabinetry, and fixtures to repaint) - honestly I didnt think it was possible to get it done well, the texture issue in particular. Hector did a great job and fixed it all perfectly. He was on time, professional, and made sure to ask the right questions. Looking forward to working with Hector again.
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.
Gerardo replaced both mine and my neighbor's water heaters in our condo. We had a unique situation with the configuration and size of our units, and Gerardo was able to identify a solution for us when two previous plumbers could not complete the work. The installation was done exactly as he had scoped, and Gerardo was incredibly helpful in helping us understand our choices to replace the units. I couldn't be happier with the job, and I highly, highly recommend Gerardo if you are in need of plumbing services. Thanks again, Gerardo!
Assembled a wooden swing and playset in our backyard. Tomas arrived on time and worked all day to complete the job. He literally worked all day to finish the job. The playset had multiple pieces and parts and would have taken me weeks to complete. I would recommend Top Cat Home Repairs for this type of job and based on his work ethic I assume any type of job.
Eduardo and his team have decades of vast experience. Prior to forming his own business, Eduardo was in charge of the 'A-Team' for one of the highest regarded painting companies in the East Bay. We initially met when we hired his previous employer to paint the exterior of our home/ garage. Having a newborn child, we were very concerned that the paint job was handled thoughtfully by experts trained in effectively handling the homes with lead paint. Eduardo and he crew did an excellent job. Since then (nearly 11 years later) we have reached to Eduardo for: Interior paint/repairs when putting previous home on the market, move-in interior paint job for subsequent home (nearly nine years ago and still looks great!), exterior two-story duplex for my mother-in-law, wallpaper stripping, light fixture installation, plumbing work, wall patching, dry wall replacement, dry rot repair, deck repair/restoration even toilet replacement. If Eduardo can't do it, he knows someone that can (his contact assisted my mother-in-law with an emergency busted hot water heater replacement)! He does tend to book out so it's helpful plan you job in advance if you have a rigid timeline. If you are a bit flexible he can sometimes sneak in an interior job if Mother Nature isn't cooperating for his exterior jobs. He snuck in a three-day impromptu stairwell, bathroom, hallway and laundry room job for us last week, spaces that we had neglected to freshen up prior to our move in in 2009. Couldn't be happier with the results! I have recommended him countless times over the years to friends, neighbors and family and I have only heard positive feedback about him and the high quality of his work. He is professional and trustworthy. Bonus: having Eduardo and his team work in/around our home is always a pleasure as they are friendly & respectful and my kids adore 'em!
I reached out to Península Custom floors for a floor refinishing project for the whole house. Andres came over to my house soon after and provided a reasonable quote. The whole project took one week (the house was 1800 square feet). Andres professionally took care of everything, and I can't be happier with the results. My 15-year-old maple wood floors look new! Andres was also able to accommodate my special request of painting a few handrails for a reasonable price. At the end of the project, Andres and his crew cleaned up the whole house. The whole experience was very smooth. I highly recommend Península Custom floors.
We hired Juan immediately for a bathroom remodel. He was professional, confident and had a new contracting business after working for someone else for 15 yrs. He did our job very quickly. Most work was very good. He is not a finished carpenter, so when we didn't like something, he brought in a friend to do the final touches. He was responsive to correction and was committed to our satisfaction. Rates were fair.
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!
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!
Patrick did an amazing job with my school’s new Dutch door! He came by to measure the door as kids were pulling my attention this way and that, but he was very patient and understanding that I had my hands full. He explained that we needed a custom door because our frame was smaller than standard size. And when I changed my mind about the style, he was quick to ensure the changes went through. He very graciously worked with my schedule for the installation because I was worried it would be disruptive to the class. He finished it today and everything was very nicely done! Since we relocated, our budget is tight as we’re working on a number of projects, but I’m so glad that we went with a true professional because the door is the first impression that families receive. And it’s perfect thanks to Patrick!
Kellie was right on time and super professional. He even helped me assemble a large piece of Ikea furniture when he saw me struggling. A+++!
Tomas and his crew did an excellent job of removing our carpet and installing our laminate flooring throughout our condo at a reasonable price. They were also very punctual and efficient with their time. We would very much consider hiring them again for a future project!
Eduardo replaced one of the 15 custom windows in our front door. He was incredibly responsive, professional, and so polite. My wife commented that the framing of the window he installed looks way cleaner and better than the original ones. We look forward to using him for future projects!
Radilla did a great job with our custom bbq cedar plank siding he is reasonably priced and does quality work.
