Great job all around. Quick responses to questions I submitted, even when sent late at night. Showed up on time and worked efficiently. He had no trouble taking apart (in our old home) and then reassembling (in our new home) an elliptical and a Bowflex that had confused people I hired on TaskRabbit to assemble them originally. Very professional. I would definitely hire him again.

I wanted to fix a broken bedroom door, and I am glad to pick David Gomes as my handyman. Seeing the number of positive reviews he has, I decided to call him on the phone to describe the problem with my door. He clarified which pieces had to be replaced, what I'd be buying at Home Depot, how much the parts would cost, and how much his labor would cost. He was very clear in his explanation, and it was obvious that he has a lot of experience in this field. After talking to him on the phone, I later asked if he'd be willing to install a bathroom door in my master room, and he gave a very fair price for both jobs. We met at Home Depot during the morning, and he quickly identified which parts I needed to buy for my 2 jobs. At my house, he skillfully installed the 2 doors I needed, ensured that they closed perfectly, seamlessly matched the old existing moulding with the new door's moulding, and I have two brand new doors now. When I asked him if there was any way he could make one of the doors quieter, he found the adhesive strips necessary for dampening the door when it was slammed. After those two jobs were done, I really liked the way my doors turned out, so I pulled out my list of home improvements while he was still around. I had him change a toilet, paint the doors he installed, fix a broken shower door handle, etc. I just asked him how much extra he would charge for each additional job I asked, and I was convinced that his rates are very good. There are a lot of people who know how to do things, but very few can perform to the detail that you would like, with the work that lasts for years to come. It's important to find the right person who knows what he's doing, and David Gomes is a plumber, electrician, and the everything-handyman whom I'll always have in my contacts for whatever problems arise with my house. I recommended him to all my friends & family who have houses, as they'll appreciate the excellent work he does for the great prices he charges. If you find someone who claims to be able to do something for much cheaper than what David Gomes is charging, you'll probably end up regretting it later.

Simply put, Jose was wonderful to work with! I came home to work to find the unpleasant surprise of a badly leaking water heater. After a little research I turned it off and determined that after its 18 year life, it needed to be replaced. After putting up my request on Thumbtack, Jose was very quick to respond and gave me some great options on how to proceed. Not only did he pick up a new water heater for me on the way, but he stopped at TWO different Home Depots to find the best one in my price range. Not to mention, this was done relatively late in the evening. His flexibility was great. Once he arrived he was very thorough and professional. He quickly installed the water heater and made sure that everything was working as designed. He even followed up the next morning to see if there was anything else that was needed. A+ overall, and I will definitely be using Jose again if something should arise with my plumbing elsewhere.

I originally hired Cruz to put up a fence. However, I quickly realized he was skilled at other areas including painting and home improvement/repair. He did an excellent job putting up my fence, painting it, as well as fixing a few things inside my house in the kitchen and living room. He was extremely professional and his work quality was great. Would definitely hire him again if I need any help with home improvement. Highly recommended for any and all home repair, fencing, and painting!

Very respectful of our home. Did a good job and took care of our needs. We sprung an extra chandelier hanging on him and he just added $60 to the price for us. He knows what he is doing and would hire again.

For all of your handywork needs,Chaojun is your man. The BEST and most prompt service I've ever experienced - efficient from start to finish, and clever with finding creative work-around solutions to assembly or repair services where most others would give up. He even helped me put up my Christmas decor, which was above and beyond the requested service. Very trustworthy (enough so to have him work on projects even when I'm not at home), and he will offer realistic advice and consultation if something else needs to be purchased in order to complete your project. I hired him for a large interior re-design project that included complex assembly, mounting, and light electrical work. Would refer him to friends and colleagues without hesitation!

Matthew helped fix a door that was sticking in my bedroom. He was very meticulous about his work and showed incredible craftsmanship. His attention to customer service is unparalleled. His rates are very reasonable. He was prompt and super-friendly throughout the project. He has much experience working on very high-end home projects, much beyond mine. But what I appreciated is he was able to apply his learnings and high bar of craftsmanship to a very small project that I needed done...at a very reasonable rate. I'll be working with Matthew much more in the future!

Just moved into the area and starting my new job so the front and back yard was severely neglected. The front yard was knee high in grass as well as weeds and the backyard was over run by tall weeds. We wanted the weeds gone and lawn maintained but knew it was a ton of work. Came home tonight and the front and back yards looked awesome! I'm confident my neighbors won't be mad at us anyone :) I highly recommend Walter. Looking forward to working with him from this point on.

I will hire Ben again in a hot minute. He was very responsive to all of my questions. He was prompt coming to my home at our arranged time and did the job with professionalism. Everything was clean when he left and I was very satisfied with the job. I had one of the new Panasonic Whisper ceiling fans put into my bathroom. His recommendation was great and the fan is almost totally silent. Yes I would hire Ben from Prestige Home Improvement again!!!

Excellent work ethics and very professional. My home is over 60 years old and the plumbing was way overdue for replacement along with my water heater. Max came and did an overview of my current incoming water lines, explained everything to me in detail about how long the job would take and which water heater would be the best for me and my family. Max is a dedicated and hard worker and always punctual. I was amazed at his completed work along with the city inspector who complimented Max on his welds and overall job. It's no wonder my plumbing passed inspection with flying colors. I highly recommend AMX plumbing for all jobs, big or small. Thanks Max!

Richard Hynes is a very detailed professional. Upon meeting Richard I felt comfortable about the project. We originally wanted to order materials for the project and he had suggested to me that he would order any materials and provide us with the receipts. Luckily we let him order the material as it turns out the ones we wanted to order were undersized for our project. Richard came and seismically retrofitted our home. He also helped us on our kitchen and bathroom remodels while managing the project the whole way, hiring subs, coordinating between myself and subcontractors and achieving the results desired. Richards pricing was 20% cheaper compared to licensed professionals in the area. We are so glad to have had his help, as the previous worker we hired from thumbtack turned out to be unlicensed at a cheaper price, but ended up costing us a lot more money in the long run.

I wish I could give then more stars for their fabulous job. The project was bathroom remodeling. My husband and I are both working full time, we were a little concern about leaving the apartment unlock. But when we met Junio and his team, we realized how trustworthy they are. Everynight we came home to a nice organized construction work. I attached the picture, you would be the judge to see how nice, clean and amazing job they did in only 4 days.

Great contractor. These guys were working on our house for a few months and did a huge amount of work. Built an addition to the house, built a new bathroom, remodel kitchen, dining room, bedrooms, replaced all plumbing, sewers, gas lines, windows, hardwood flooring - everything. During all construction period Aldo was super responsive, helped a lot with his experience in materials and design, always managed his team to do work on time and with great quality. One thing that I'd like to point out specifically - his estimates were always detailed and accurate and he never asked for extra expenses. We're living in our house for almost a year now and we're happy that we worked on it with this guy, he is a perfect example of highly motivated professional who can do any complex construction project with pace, great quality and within budget. I would highly recommend to hire him if you want your home improvement to become a great experience for you and your family.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
