If you're looking for a skilled and resourceful handyman who is punctual, responsible, and value for your money, David Gomes is your man. I initially hired David to repair two pocket doors - one was stuck and the other did not slide smoothly. I was a little nervous that he had to remove the moulding to repair the doors, but he did a great job. I, also, had him adjust some of my cabinet doors and he worked on my patio doors and screens so they now open so smoothly. David is, indeed, a specialist on doors, but he can do so much more that I had him do other things in my house. . .install 3 new toilets and a new lock and deadbolt on a door, re-grouted some tiles, replace spray hose, moulding in powder room etc. Whenever he finishes a task, he always asks you to check it so that you are completely satisfy with the job. He made several trips to the hardware store to get materials he needed and didn't charge me for his time. I have a large custom home and have used many contractors/handymen for various jobs and I would highly recommend David. I am so glad I found him on Thumbtrack. . .he will be the only handyman I will use from this day forward.
He installed my cabinets and was did a great job. I will definitely want to use him again should I ever need some other repair work done....
Gleo was a relief come true! He is a true professional who made an extra effort to respond to our request repair our light switch ASAP. He came from a very late night previous appointment to do the repair as my 83 year old father in law is a home kidney dialysis patient who was bothered by the light that we couldn’t turn off. Gleo’s work quality is excellent as he not only fixed the damaged light switch but replaced the 2nd switch, that was also damaged and would have failed soon. We are extremely pleased with Gleo’s dedication to perform superior work at a very reasonable price, his quick response that went above and beyond the call of duty and his overall professionalism. He will be our number one contact if we have any future needs !!!!
My patio windows/doors were badly in need of repair. Noel Gantley came up with creative solutions. He worked diligently to get the job done. It was a pleasure to have Noel working in my house.
Mauricio came to my home and provided an estimate to paint my Master Bedroom, Closet, Bathroom and Family Room. The price was very reasonable and Mauricio gave me a detailed explanation on how the job would be completed and a time frame. Mauricio and his crew showed up on time and completed the job in record time! They were very professional and neat! He also completed some repair work for me outside of painting. A Big Bonus! I am definitely pleased with the outcome and would hire them again!
Did a great job on stucco repair
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.
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!
John Cullen of Caledonia Plastering did outstanding exterior stucco and interior plaster work for my backyard structure - beautiful wall finish, very uniform and flat, tightly finished and good to see. He worked his schedule around to get to me quickly, working on Saturdays. If I have more stucco or plaster work I will definitely check with him again.
Barry is fantastic!!! Not only is he an extremely proficient painter but artisan in his craft. From general wall painting to old world glazing applications and wall art creations. Saved me thousands of dollars by transforming my old kitchen cabinets and bath vanities too works of art!From painting to all of the trades needed to upgrade and repair electrical, plumbing and carpentry his skill in all of the trades is well beyond the norm. He is honest and timely keeping to his word and helping by suggesting better alternatives to problems about the house. His goal is to please his clients' wishes. He is reasonably priced and friendly, willing to go that extra mile to please. Do not pass on having him do your projects. He was enthusiastic about every task I asked of him and got them done fast. Extremely tidy, you will never know he was there when he is done. Now I will always know who to call whenever there's projects come up!
I cannot explain how grateful I am to have met Economy Home repair through this app. They were fast, friendly, and the service was impeccable. I had recently been working to restore a 1912 Craftsman style bungalow in Oakland, and then accepted a job in another state. Bad planning for me, but luckily I had Thumbtack and Economy Home Repair there for me. They we're first contracted to remove the aluminum siding that was wrapped around the house, then, we needed them to fix or replace any damaged shingles from the original siding, and then lay a coat of paint over it all! They got that done in a couple weeks!! Later on, I needed their help to finish up some tile work, and to put up some Sheetrock in the 2nd floor. They got that done with no hesitation. Again, I cannot be more grateful for that team. They deserve 100 stars.
We needed someone to repair a leak from the ceiling of our kitchen. Nick was quick to reply. He came on time. Efficient, knowledgeable, and courteous. Thank you for the good service!
I recently hired Albert to repair the fence on my rental property in SF due to storm damage. He was prompt & courteous and attentive to my needs as a remote landlord. He gave me a fair estimate and sent pictures of the damage and explained the scope of the repair involved. After approval of the proposal, he executed the work in a timely matter and kept me updated on the progress & worked well with my tenant. Within 2 weeks, another storm caused some further damage to the property and he came promptly and repaired the problem, saving me hundred of dollars in the process. After 2 wonderful experiences, I employed him again to repair some lock and door knob issues that recently occurred as well. I would highly recommend him for any handyman services you might require as he is both honest, co-operative, punctual and trustworthy.
I highly recommend Fredy for any of your handyman needs. I hired him for a small drywall project but i could see he had many skills so I had him to numerous projects: wood floor sanding and staining, crown moulding and baseboard install, framing, wallpaper, plumbing, welding, tile repair, painting, furniture building, building a fence, and finish carpentry. I am probably missing some things! I worked with numerous other tradesman before I found Fredy on Thumbtack, and I found the quality and reliability of others slipped over time, but not Fredy! He continued to maintain a high level of customer service throughout the numerous projects. He always asks if I'm happy, and replies by saying "I'm not happy if you're not happy!" And I could tell he meant it. I also found his level of ethics to be very high and his pricing very fair. He is an upbeat personality which is also a pleasure to work with. I will continue to use Fredy for all my handyman needs in my home and business.
Oscar was easy to contact. We had 6 holes from some complicated plumbing and electrical work that had been done in our home, many in hard to work in areas where getting access seemed close to impossible for us. I sent him pictures of the drywall needing to be patched. We made an appointment on Friday with him for Saturday at 8AM and he was right on time. We walked through the house talked obout our expectations and he pointed out some problematic issues about our electrical and plumbing, offering choices on how he could proceed. He went right to work, and worked really hard for over 4 hours then he was done. We are thrilled with the results, he matched our existing textured walls perfectly, no small feat. All our drywall looks original now, not patched. His fee was entirely reasonable if not an outright bargain. When he left there was some very small clean up to do on our end. Removing tape after everything dried. We wiped down a counter a bathroom floor where some drywall dust had wandered. We expected this and knew we were not paying for “white glove” service where a team enters in cotton booties leaving every surface dustless. I would not hesitate to use him again, and would recommend him highly, unless your the type of client that appealed at the idea dusting up some very small area. He is a true professional. We got a quote on what it would cost to detexture our home, which was higher than we hopped, but then he pointed out all sorts of details we hadn’t thought of that it would take to get a perfect finish and it totally made sense. When we decide to go ahead with that job he’ll definitely be the guy we use.
Rick Roitinger built out handicap access structures for my husband who suffered a bad bone break. His work on this project was outstanding. He has also helped helped with a wide range of repairs on our house and our gallery, including carpentry, electrical and plumbing work. He is always positive and has great solutions on how best to repair things. He's the best!
The crew did an excellent job patching a sizable hole in the ceiling left by the plumber who was investigating a water leak. The patch runs perfectly smooth with its surrounding surface. Once painted, the ceiling will look like new. We’ll have more work in the future and I won’t hesitate to call Plaster Effect when the time comes.
Jose did a great job and we added to the work as he's a GC, not just a handyman. I would definitely use him again.
Efrain came in and fixed everything in a day furnace bond jumpers, proper exhaust for bathrooms and attic insulation. Pretty happy!
I take a lot of pride in every job and all my work is guaranteed I work fast clean and safe I like to see all my customers satisfied and refer me to their friends
