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.

We initially contacted Albino to get a quote for interior painting. We liked him right away, and ended up chatting about other projects we were thinking about doing. We were thrilled when he said his team could do the work we had in mind within our timeline, and that he could manage the project! An overview of the work: - After they did demolition, it was revealed that large sections of our hardwood floors were damaged. Albino's team replaced the damaged sections so you would never know which wood is original and which is new, and refinished all of the hardwood floors throughout the house - the before and after is amazing! - They re-did 2 bathrooms - one of which required skilled plumbing work like moving a toilet, retiling the shower and floor, and replacing a single sink vanity with a double sink vanity. That bathroom is probably our favorite room in the house! - They did the paint job as initially discussed and painted every square inch of the inside of our house! This included painting our outdated oak kitchen cabinets and installing updated knobs, and the cabinets now look great! - There were countless other things the team did - like laying down laminate flooring in the kitchen and hooking up new kitchen appliances, installing overhead lights and dimmers, installing our new front doors as well as interior doors, and picking up supplies on as needed basis. Albino is trustworthy, fair, accountable, responsive, and kind. Each person on his team has their specialties and he is good at resource allocation to manage the client's costs. We felt like we were in good hands with Albino, and wholeheartedly recommend that you reach out to him for any projects you're considering!

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!

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.

I hired Jasper to build a custom storage bench for me, and a modern barn door. Jasper responded to my post and came by to see the space prior to giving me a quote. He took my ideas and made some suggestions, and drew me a plan of what the pieces would look like. He was also able to find wood that matched my existing wooden floors and mango wood furniture very well. The bench he built fits perfectly in my space and looks seamless. The barn door is very modern (just what I wanted) and looks fantastic in my room. He also kindly offered to come by in a month to ensure that there was no issues and adjust anything to my liking once I have had time to use the pieces. Overall turnaround from the time he responded to my Thumbtack post to delivery of items was less than 2 weeks.

OUTSTANDING WORK!! Mike came in after another handyman/painter messed up on the job that I had to fire. He then had to start from scratch and brought everything back to normal looking better than it first did in its original shape . I had him replace some sheet rock tape and texture then go over with my custom paint color . I am very satisfied with his work in as cleanliness .... I highly recommend Mike and his crew for any interior painting/drywall texture job he's work is outstanding and he communicates very well I'm very pleased with the job and come spring I am going to hire him for my outside needs .... also he had a really good eye for picking colors and what looks good and what did it he was very helpful every time I talk to him .. although Mike was very fast at doing the job it did not affect the quality of his work ... thanks again Mike appreciate you picking up where someone left off .

Christopher did an absolutely fantastic job installing our Container Store custom Elfa shelving units in 2 reach-in closets and 1 pantry. The job required some light demolition (shelf removal), patchwork, painting and the final installation, all of which Chris did with diligence, skill, and professionalism. Chris was very friendly, transparent, prompt, and his customer service and communication skills were top notch. I can proudly say Chris has become our go-to handyman for all projects we are unable to handle ourselves and I would 100% recommend him to anyone needing shelving installation (especially Elfa!), TV mounting, and more!

Having never hired a handyman from a website, I was very hesitant but, I needed a lift chair repaired quickly. Peter arrived at my home within 2 hours of our conversation. He was personable,and appropriate, he immediately assessed the problem, fixed the lift, and chair has been working perfectly since. The cost was less than half of what I expected. I have referred him to all my friends.

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.

I had a challenging renovation project to trim out some doors and windows because every surface was irregular. After reviewing work from many general carpenters, it was clear these guys had real finish carpentry skills. For each window and door, they took the time to figure out the best way to approach and then did super high quality work and now everything looks great. Pricing was also very competitive. Hoping to use Barsesat for a cabinet project in the near future.

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!

Ryan, our new handyman, can do just about everything! He was on time, re-confirmed our appointment; he isn't just a handyman, he did jobs for us as carpenter, assembler, mover, hauler, and gave us good suggestions on the project we are working on. He's friendly, candid, and has great image. We have plans to use him again and in the future.

Daniel responded promptly to my request and was available when I was in a time crunch. He arrived on time, worked efficiently, was clean, detail-oriented and professional. Daniel helped with varnishing my front door, painting the exterior of my residence and carrying out general handyman work.

Pedro has completed two jobs for my family now and I just asked him to come do a third job! The first job was a door installation. Doors can be tricky and Pedro did great work! We've had the door installed for about a month now and it's still functioning beautifully. The second job was painting, moving an electrical outlet and mounting a TV. All done in one day. So fine was his work that we are asking him to come back a third time to paint our entire downstairs. Pedro is a good communicator, makes smart suggestions and is a skilled carpenter. I feel like we struck gold when we found Pedro. I highly recommend!

Really enjoyed working with Dermot Chawke. He did all of the finish carpentry on a remodel of the first floor of our home. He installed doors, hardware, baseboards, other trim pieces, and shelves; rebuilt an interior staircase; and custom built shelves and cabinets for an area under the stairs. He was easy to communicate with, always showed up when he said he would, had great ideas to maximize storage space, and did great quality work. Would be happy to use him again in the future.

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!
