He bid $125 to clear the drain of a light well. Came within the half hour arranged arrival window. Swept clean the roof area. Found after the water initially drained that water backed up again. Determined that there was another clog underground near the sewer connection. Since there was no cleanout at the ground level and drain pipes were corroded (I had patched holes with plumbers putty and duct tape) He replaced the pipes for another $250 plus parts. This involved cutting away some cross beams to pull the pips out. Only minor complaint I noticed the next day that was that he didn't close tight the faucet to get water for testing the drain so there was a slow drip.
Ronnie was great. Fixed a very clogged drain the same day I posted the request.
So when it comes to maintenance around my house I usually do it myself. Well this time I didn't know what I was doing and ended up losing electricity in several rooms. I called Michael's Handy Services and he came right over. Not only did he fix the problem, he also showed me what I did wrong and showed me how to do it myself. Great service and very fair price. I'll be calling for other jobs around the house and also referred him to a friend.Thanks Mike
Ricardo was prompt and completed my faucet drain install quickly, then was able to complete another project for me while he was here - great!
Ray was extremely professional. He explained the work that he did and how I could better take care of my drain. For example, Ray said pouring grease, among other things, down the garbage disposal is not a good idea. Ray cleaned up after himself and left my sink and pipes in great working order. I recommend Ray wholeheartedly and will use him again should a plumbing issue arise.
Marytnn was excellent. He phoned and we were able to deduce the issue and come to a very reasonable quote. He came the same day (and earlier than expected) and got the job done. If you have little people in your house that like to drop things down the drain, definitely give Martynn Plumbing and Drain Cleaning a call!
I had a clogged shower drain and Max sent two of his plumbers (Chris and Corey) the next business day to fix it. They were professional and courteous. Unfortunately, the issue was more severe than expected, but Chris found a workaround that will hopefully be less expensive. Some follow up work still needs to be done, but I'm hopeful that it won't be too involved.
I've literally communicated with or contacted at least five contractors over the past two months to complete this flooring job. Salinas was an answer to prayer! Whereas other sites or contractors told me to wait and/or never got back to me or took others jobs, Vyron responded promptly within an hour when I posted the job on Thumbtack. Vyron and Pablo did excellent work putting down a new subfloor and plywood, then installing an LVP (see photos) and a new toilet (not pictured). Vyron communicated about every step of repair and installation and about every purchase for the job. He takes pride in his work and left the work area clean. I'm so glad that the job is finished and that it was done well.
Gleo is one of the most honest handymen I've had the pleasure of hiring. He came to our home, checked out our AC and pointed out how the air filter was clogged and the mesh around the condenser outdoor was dirty. He replaced the filter on his own dime and also cleaned the mesh around the condenser to improve the airflow and it fixed the problem. He recommended that I check the filter and the area around the condenser frequently and do my own preventative maintenance so that I don't have to spend money on a professional in the future at the cost of his own future business. I am glad I hired Gleo and whole heartedly recommend him for any handyman projects. I'll be hiring him definitely for my next project.
I hired Gusanito to install porcelain tiles in my bathroom. He was very prompt--being the first contractor to contact me on thumbtack--and quickly responded to my text messages whenever I had a question. He takes his time and is very detailed in his work. He is also willing to help you with other problems. For example, in addition to installing the tiles, I also wanted to change my sink faucet and shower handles. He agreed to do the extra work at a reasonable price. The tile installation went smoothly, however, we ran into plumbing issues which he couldn't solve. I'm giving him four stars because I hired him on thumbtack for tile installation services, not plumbing. Nonetheless, he agreed to bring his cousin (who is an experienced plumber) over the next day to change my sink faucet at no extra cost. The total work took about two full days to complete, but I'm sure it would have been less if we didn't run into the plumbing issues. So I recommend him but make sure you talk with him thoroughly about what you want to accomplish.
Ali and his team at A1 Budget Plumbing are outstanding and one of a kind!!! I called them for immediate work I needed done and a plumber came out within an hour! He was fast, and explained everything to me! I had gotten a couple other quotes and I chose A1 Budget Plumbing because they didn't over charge me and gave me an honest deal! If you want a company who won't hassle you and will explain every step to you and not over charge, call A1 Budget Plumbing! I will definitely call them back when I need plumbing services! Thanks A1!
We caught a clog in our kitchen sink after Thanksgiving and needed an urgent fix. Rolo was super quick to respond: it only took 2 hours from putting my request on Thumbtack to having Rolo and Keith over at the house to take a look at the problem. They worked efficiently and diligently, being careful to check all junctions of our pipe system. After trying everything they could, they figured out that our entire drain pipe from the kitchen was fully clogged because of the material and slope of the pipe and proposed getting it replaced. They showed up the next day and cut through the old pipe and revealed exactly what they had thought all along. They took out the old pipes and replaced it with a brand new ABS system. Rolo and Keith were super professional and polite. They showed up on short notice and on time the next day, cleaned up after themselves, were extremely communicative, and stuck to their fair price. I wish all service pros were like this. I highly recommend working with them.
Denver was very professional and took care of my drain problem and helped so that I won't have trouble again in the near future. I would call him any time I have another plumbing issue.
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!
Bogdan was awesome! I recommend him to anyone needing help with his services. He responded right away to my request. He was nice and pleasant to work with. Very accommodating and patient! 10 stars for him!
Max installed the plumbing for washer/dryer hookups in my condo; Hot & cold water hookups with drain pipes, and vents. Max is very courteous & punctual and does top notch work. It was not an easy project due to the location of our washer & dryer but he made it work and did a great job weaving the pipes in the least obstructive manner possible. He was also very busy at the time that I hired him but was able to squeeze me in during some downtime he had while waiting on parts for another project. I would definitely recommend Max & will 100% use him in the future for any of my plumbing needs.
Communication was great- they responded to our request very quickly and were able to come fast. However, our drain problem was in a multi-unit condo, and possibly beyond the scope of their equipment/capabilities. They used a 20 ft snake that ultimately got stuck in our system. We had to escalate to our building management, who brought out plumbers used to commercial properties and eventually resolved over a couple weeks. Not the plumber's fault, as they were not able to know the extend of our drain issues. 5 stars for communication and effort, 3 for incomplete resolution - so 4 star average.
Charles has completely replace the flushing system in the toilet. The access was very difficult and tight. The price was very reasonable, he came exactly as scheduled and did the job quickly and efficiently.
Stephan is extremely detailed and does what needs to be done in order for the job to be right. Stephan went beyond the role of a plumber helping us bring up the massively heavy vanity with my husband and 2 other neighbors up our stairs and through our narrow hallway. In order for the vanity to be flushed against the way, he cut through our trim. He had to take our old sink and break it open to get parts. When he was done, he caulked the back. It looked beautiful. A few days later we noticed the sink's water would drain slowly. I texted Stephan and he was back at our house a day later with new pipes and a professional grade snake. Stephan is beyond capable of even the biggest projects and is all around a nice guy you trust.
Camilo and his colleague did an excellent job -- the project involved preparing a closet for a washer and dryer, hooking up gas and building a water drain. They used high-quality materials, were always on time and got the hob done on schedule. I would highly recommend them and plan to work with them again whenever I need plumbing work done.
