Jose is great! On-time, friendly, and considerate. I love it when contractors dont mind teaching aspects about the project, describing what they're doing and informing. And are not bothered when people are curious. Never felt like I was on the clock with him. A great plumber / handyman that I would gladly re-hire again! Thanks Jose!
Having dealt with A LOT of contractors in SF, I can assure you Matias is one you will stick with.
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.
Fernando was a pleasure to work with and very responsive. He built us extra shelves in our shed and assembled a ramp kit I bought online for it. I am very happy with the work he performed! I would caution to be careful when asking for a quote vs his hourly rate since his quote is a flat rate regardless if he finishes it in less time. The difference was not disclosed to me so I was under the impression the quote followed the same hourly rate he was charging. So in short, if you know how many hours your project will take, simply hire him for the hourly rate instead of the quoted flat rate for a project as it may be a better value. Overall, I would hire him again as it was a good experience and his punctuality was top notch!
I was in a time crunch, and needed a falling fence repaired asap. Matt responded quickly to my initial request, as well as every subsequent email/text. We scheduled a visit the next morning, where he inspected the damage, and described a couple of options for the repair. That same evening, he sent us a quote with a reasonable and competitive price, and luckily was able to squeeze us into his schedule, despite only a couple days notice. The first day of the job, Matt and his team showed up on time, and got straight to work tearing out our old, rotting fence. Their work was clean and tidy, and they even made the extra effort to accommodate us in removing all of the debris that day, as we were scheduled to have photos of the yard taken. They returned the next morning to construct a beautiful, new fence, built to the highest standards. Afterwards, they cleaned up, ensured our yard was returned to it's original condition, and even helped us out by taking some extra yard compost with them, which had been left behind by the city. In the past, my experience w/ other contractors in general had been less than positive. Cost, communication, and especially workmanship on several jobs had become such a concern, that recently, I have been simply attempting most projects myself, if at all possible. My experience with Matthew Kelly Construction has been a breath of fresh air compared to these other interactions. Throughout the entire job, he and his team were incredibly considerate, accommodating, and some of the friendliest people I have ever worked with. Not only would I hire Matt again in a heartbeat, I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for quality carpentry/construction work.
First time I have been thoroughly happy with a contractor service! Albino was great to work with from the start. We needed to sand and refinish a 300sq foot deck. He came quickly to give a quote (which was reasonable), then got the job started immediately and done within planned time frame (we were on a tight timeline). Rigoberto did most of the work and was very professional and kind. The quality of the work was great, even better than expected and cost was exactly as pre determined with no surprises. Would definitely recommend him to others and hire him again if needed.
Ricardo filled the large hole in my drywall that I hired him for, and seeing that there was a smaller one nearby...he filled in that one, too, without my asking - what a pleasant surprise!
I hired them to lay the engineered bamboo floor in my condo. They did exactly what promised and in the time they originally specified. I have been doing remidelling and construction of my rentals and my resident for the last 10 years and very much familiar with the business. Out if many contractors or handymen i met Jason and Regina are the outstanding team. They work fast, they are very proactive and attentive to details. And their price was reasonable. What is the most important for me is that they do listen to my suggestions - not like many macho style contractors:). The floor work looks absolutely great and i am very happy. So that i would like to hire them for other work on my rental property.
I own a bar in downtown Oakland and we have been working with Chao for about a year. He has helped us with electrical work, building projects, and general maintenance around the bar. We are always pleased with his know-how, punctuality and thoroughness.
Gerardo was exceptionally communicative and easy to work with on top of doing high-quality work on time and on budget. What else can one ask for in a contractor?? He responded to email and text within minutes and showed up on time on a Sunday of Memorial day weekend. He installed our new kitchen island sink, including an additional drain that he had not been aware of before arrival. Rather than make it more complicated, Gerardo went quickly to the nearest hardware store, figured out the parts needed, and got the job done quickly. He worked cleanly, was very conscientious of our furniture, floors, personal items etc, and did it all with a smile and good attitude. After completing the work, Gerardo took the time to test and re-test every aspect of his work, and even correct some minor mistakes made by our previous plumber. I would not hesitate to recommend Gerardo, and will definitely hire him again in the future!
It went very. Ricky and his crew were very nice and trustworthy. Gave him a key to my house since I was unable to be home during the times they would be working my bathroom. He was fair with his pricing and so nice. I have had 2 contractors work on place before and they had such bad attitudes. I will definitely use Ricky again and recommend to friends. Also loved how respectful they were of my Home and keeping it clean as much as possible while working.
I didn't actually hire Max because our project changed and I didn't need him anymore so I can't talk about work quality. However, I wanted to comment on his quoting process. I had several contractors come out to make their bids and I felt that Max did an excellent job of not only listening but actually hearing what I was asking for and providing his professional suggestions (without trying to bid up the project). He provided his estimate which was exactly what we had talked about and his pricing was lower than the competition. I would contact Max again to bid for projects in the future.
I've been wanting to convert my living room into a bedroom, but I didn't know who to hire. I asked around and a lot of contractors asked for too much money, around $1,000-$2,000 just for a door installation. I hired Slavik because he gave me the best quote. He arrived the very next day to inspect my apartment and gave me a few options. Slavik and his team installed the door in record time and they did an outstanding job making sure it fits and functions properly. I couldn't have asked for a better job, plus the cost was reasonably affordable. These guys are the best! I'll be hiring Slavik as my trusted contractor for all my future renovations.
Arisel handled a small hardwood repair job in our kitchen. First I'm grateful that he offered his services. Many contractors only bid big jobs. Second he followed on his commitments to me, being on time and following up the next day with a touch up. I did not have to follow up. He was good to work with. Third I think he did an excellent job with the conditions he had to deal with. I recommend him.
Jim was a very easy and pleasant contractor to work with. His crew was on time and professional. Since he is a veteran, it helps that he can get 10% off at Home Depot (hey, every little bit helps!). I would highly recommend Jim and his crew for any home improvement project.
