Arisel was precise, on time, exceptionally professional and thorough. Great personality and clearly a master of his trade. He put together two IKEA day beds that were hugely complicated and involved - with full authority. Highly recommend.
I did a lot of research on various sites for someone who could paint my master bedroom in our RENTAL apartment. Keyword is rental. I wanted new paint, but didn't want to invest a huge amount of money into cosmetic upgrades since my husband and I don't plan to be here long, long term. After an exhaustive search and even a few vendors who came by and gave really high quotes, I hired Albino. He was great. The price was moderate, but fair compared to the other quotes I got. He brought someone with him to assist with the painting and they were so quick - but thorough and very professional and friendly. I was so happy with Albino and would use him again for other handy work around the apartment.
Matt is awesome! Super personable and does great work! He follows his word and can make your vision a reality. I showed him some pictures of a wedding altar I wanted to build (in order to hold vintage doors) and he executed exactly what I was looking for! I will definitely have Matt back for my next project! I highly recommend you hiring Matt for any handyman or carpentry needs.
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!!!
Derrick really worked wonders considering the non-standard existing door frame that I had to work with. The work looks great and I very pleased with the results. I would recommend Definitive Installations for any finishing carpentry work.
Damon performed exemplary work on a wide variety of projects throughout my home. He exceeded my admittedly lofty expectations. As just one example, when hanging a pivot door in my master bathroom shower, he opted to upgrade the standard hardware. For free. And from his own set, which he had on hand. I could do pull-ups on that thing if I wanted. The fact that it looks beautiful and keeps my floor bone-dry are just an added bonus. I would - and indeed will - use Damon again as soon as the need arises.
Jasper did an excellent job of designing and building my computer desk and storage unit. On our first meeting he was able to translate the description of what I wanted into a drawing with measurements. On his next visit he confirmed the measurements and proposed workarounds for dealing with challenges such as the room's molding as well as taking a paint sample to match the color of the unit with the room. The results were better than I expected. The unit truly looks built-in with molding around the top that matches the molding in the room. Though it's a floor to ceiling unit, it does not feel overbearing due to the design, color and seamless attachment to walls and ceiling. He was easy to work with when making adjustments in order to accommodate placement of my computer equipment. When I specified what I wanted, I got exactly that. Jason is an extremely competent woodworker and very fast executor. I would highly recommend him.
When Juan and I began to negotiate the cost of the work that I needed done, he quoted me an hourly rate. I balked at this; stating that I preferred to pay by the job - and that way, he would be free to work as quickly or as slowly as he pleased. He stated to me, in a very cool and yet confident way: "Let me explain to you who I am..." He went on to talk to me about the integrity that he tries to honor; and the business that he is trying to build. He assured me that he is honorable and hard working; and that he would never charge me what he was not due. My soul felt that he should be trusted...and what an gift it has been to experience the quality of his work, his kindness, his business acumen, and the wisdom of his words. He is a licensed contractor, an honorable man, and a master of his craft.
I only have good things to say about Jose and his crew. He completely transformed our master bedroom. We will definitely be calling Jose for our next project.
Didi has been excellent in guiding us through the master bed/bath remodel process and has us on track to create a spa like experience in our home.
My (rather large) project was closer to custom furniture making than to general carpentry, so I spent half a year looking for a woodworker on Thumbtack, Yelp, and where not. Bay Area contractor market being what it is, I found nobody willing even to look at my project. Eventually I expanded my search to carpenters and now I’m really glad that I did. Oswaldo replied promptly, came to our house to discuss the project, offered sensible suggestions and a modest price and made everything in a week, which was faster than I expected and probably at a fraction of price I would pay to a woodworker. Granted, he does not have CNC routers and other fancy tools or even a workshop (he was working in our garage), but Oswaldo has shown me that in hands of a master there is nothing a miter saw cannot do. Oh, and in the evenings our garage was always carefully vacuumed, so nobody would tell that it saw some heavy sawing during the day. I am very pleased with Oswaldo’s work and highly recommend his services.
Joey is AMAZING! I showed a picture of what I wanted and not only was he able to created it, be made it even better than I had imagined! He truly is a master craftsman and very professional. You will not be disappointed!
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!
Luis was absolutely amazing and to call him a handyman is a huge understatement, he is a master craftsman and did such a fantastic job installing new hardware on our front door! He made the door look brand new and his attention to detail was incredible, I give him the highest recommendation possible and will definitely hire him for other projects and jobs, thank you SO much Luis, you're the best!
Alex Rodas is great to work with and a skilled carpenter
Wow - amazing work. Tomas built a deck for me in my backyard in Marin. The deck is just beautiful - we love it. Additionally, Tomas and his crew were on-time, pleasant and professional.
Igor has been working in my backyard on an in-law unit and he is definitely a master at his craft. It's coming along great and his workers as well as himself have been very respectful of my property and considerate of all my neighbors. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs anything done to their household or property.
The doors and windows in my house were very old. And I wanted to upgrade to my windows to double pane. I called a few carpenters/handymen and most of them either weren't interested in the job of never showed up. Until I called Dominick. He arrived on time, listened to exactly what I wanted and delivered everything he promised. It's not easy finding a good handy man these days but I will definitely recommend Dominick to my friends and family in the future.
I love my new kitchen that Emmery Construction and Renovation did! The job went smoothly, without any problems. It was finished under budget, under the time projected and they even had time to put in a new bathroom vanity, mirror and new light fixture in my guest toilet! I loved how John completes your job, before moving his crew onto someone else's. I had a bad experience with my last kitchen remodel with another contractor. On that previous remodel, the contractor was trying to juggle several jobs at once, and would constantly make excuses as to why he wasn't working on my job–very frustrating and it took weeks longer than he quoted me. This time, my experience was a dream come true! John even had a designer on his team, that took all of my ideas and turned them into a cohesive and beautifully finished project–better than I had ever dreamed it could be! It was a pleasure working with his whole team! I'll be calling Emmery Construction & Renovation again, as soon as I'm ready to redo my master bath! It was a GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!
Daniel has now worked on two of my properties. The first was a two month project where he did extensive custom carpentry and other trades. On the second property he did plumbing, electrical and carpentry work. He will be remodeling my master bath in the fall. His work quality is excellent and I feel he has always quoted us a fair price.
Juan did a renovation of my master suite, including bathroom. This included plumbing work, a new shower pan, tile work, painting, and installing a new closet door and baseboards. Juan and his crew were very nice to work with and professional. I would definitely recommend them!
