David is a very nice and responsible guy. I find him on the website. He is a genius in installing doors. I need a patio door exchanged. After we talked over the phone, he set my reservation immediately. It was the next day David came to my house to measure the door size and accompanied me to choose a very nice patio door. On the day the door was delivered, David spent the whole day installing my patio door. As you know, the patio door is both large and heavy, only the skilled man can install it perfectly. David did it!! He carefully checked the strike plate and the metal piece on the jam where the door latched to make sure it is not too low or too high. David also checked the hinges to look for uneven lines. The gaps all around the door were same all the way. We can’t see any imperfection about David’s work. My patio door was finally installed beautifully. I love my patio door so much that I can’t thank David any more. The price for installing the door is very reasonable. In the end, David gave us free lubricant, paint, brushes, stain marker, etc. David also came and helped clean the patio the other day, for which I appreciated a lot. David is a responsible man for installing doors, if you have any kind of doors for installing, don’t miss such a good man.
I am an architect, and I hired AA Cardenas Construction to rebuild a patio roof covering for my personal residence. The construction project required some thought and some careful planning by them to get the translucent roof covering to slope properly and still keep the spacing consistent across the width of the roof. They did an excellent job of adjusting on the fly to make things work perfectly. Their jobsite was neat and safe, they showed up on schedule, and the quality of the work and the attention to detail was excellent. Plus the price was very fair. I am recommending them highly.
Ralph built a deck and fence for me about a month ago and the work was absolutely great. His prices were very reaonsonable and he did the job in a very short time. By far, one of the easiest and nicest contractors to work with. I would recommend him to anyone as he finished the job on-time and the deck and fence looked great!
Matthew has done a number of projects for me and my wife. Deck repair, built some custom planters for our back yard and a few odd jobs inside. Excellent service
Gustavo and his crew (Edgar and Arman) did a great job of repairing the concrete deck around my pool. They were on-time, clean, and hardworking; not to mention doing a much better job than expected for a very fair price. I would definitely use them again if I had other jobs to do (and I think I will).
Hector and his team were efficient and thorough with the work I needed down on my deck. They even completed the job in less time than quoted. I would definitely hire his team again for future jobs.
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.
My 1300 sq ft deck refinish did not go well. They did a lot of work to power wash and prep the deck, but it just wasn't a complete job. Areas of old, worn-out finish remained over most of the deck. The new finish was applied and puddled over these areas and either formed dark, shiny areas, or just skinned over and refused to dry after more than a week. The lifetime of the finish in these areas will likely be poor. In addition, as a first "trim" operation they applied finish to the inch or so on either side of the gap between boards, then they applied finish over the boards with a roller. Unfortunately, this ended up looking pretty bad on most boards in the deck, with the edges of the boards being dark/shiny/sticky and the middle being light. Finally, some agreed upon board repair work was not done. My wife gave him the final check while I was at work so I didn't have a chance for a final inspection. My mistake. This was in no way a professional quality job. It's hard to imagine that Big League didn't know this was a mess when they finished, and they have not responded to my contact attempts to see what can be done to make this right.
We needed a wooden deck and concrete patio slab demolished and hauled away. Bogdan's price was excellent and his work superb. He showed up on time, communicated information clearly and timely, and was very courteous. I was especially impressed with his clean up, he hardly left a mess and took the time to make sure there were no stray bits of concrete out on the street. I was very impressed.
Chris did a fantastic job sanding and staining my backyard deck area. He was efficient, on time, and meticulous. Great work ethic and quality work product.
I'm very happy with Juan's work. He is very professional, a great communicator, punctual and does fine work. He built a beautiful deck for us based on what we wanted and the improved design that he suggested. I highly recommend Juan as a contractor!
Scorpion Services did an amazing job building our deck and gazebo. We are so please they were able to complete the job in 2 days! I would highly recommend them! We plan to use their services for another few projects we have planned throughout this year. Installing grass and sprinkler system will definitely be one of the next projects.
The Last 10% did an amazing job for us. Underneath of our deck in our garden was in desperate need of cleaning. He showed up on time and did a GREAT job. Highly recommend him and his service. Thank you.
We chose David and his team to tear down and replace a tired old deck, but with a new footprint. Work Quality: This was not just great workmanship, but actual craftsmanship. The detail and precision of the joints, cuts, spacing of the boards was meticulous. The fact that there are no seams, no uneven gaps, and no screws visible on top of the deck surface is amazing. Professionalism: The crew showed up each day on time! They wore company logo'd shirts and jackets and had company vehicles. Each day the sawdust and construction mess was cleaned up by sweeping or blowing, all tools were stacked and out of the way, wood was piled up neatly so the area looked clean and tidy each night before they left for the day. There were no remnants of lunch litter or water bottles scattered in the yard. They even had their own portable restroom delivered so there were no muddy boots tracking into our bathroom. That was something that indicates a concern for the workmen by the company. Happy workers are good workers. Responsiveness: We are able to discuss any questions or issues that came up during construction with the team. Since we were installing lighting in the stairs, there were some logistics involved and they were more than happy to help or provide info. Between the ability to contact David by email or text at any time, I never felt that I was out of the loop on any aspect of the project. One thing that was especially impressive was that the first rain day I received an early morning email confirming that the team would not be on site that day. That NEVER happens! I assumed they wouldn't be working but to get actual notification before the start of the day was above and beyond and very much appreciated. Value: I can say in complete honesty that this is the first project ever that we felt we got more than what we paid. The price was very fair to begin with, but the additional touches exceeded any expectations. For instance, the lack of surface screws was not something we requested or even thought to ask about. It could have been an option that was brought up as an additional charge, but it was just done, included in the original pricing. Extremely pleasant surprise! Punctuality: On time each day, and worked full days. If there was a rain day expected, it was communicated. In summary, this is a company that we can wholeheartedly recommend without any reservation. Estate Scapes will be our go-to for all things landscape or hardscape related. The entire experience was excellent. I will update with photos shortly.
Did a lot of work on the outside of the house due to dry rot.as well as the garage replacing he sidings.He also put new gutters on the roof,replacing .the decking outside my bedroom due to dry rot as well as the stairs leading to the deck below.dded outside lights on the garage. He painted the house ,doors and trim.and did a number of small jobs he say that needed to be done.Shaz did a beautiful job and took no shortcuts. I would recommend him without hesitation.
After buying a serious fixer-upper, I hired Michael Mcguire to help with me pretty much everything. The first two projects were a a full kitchen and bathroom remodel. As a first time homeowner, he went above and beyond helping me understand my options on a budget without sacrificing quality. I was so happy with his work and level of service, I hired to him back to redo my bar and build a deck in my backyard. He is my go-to person for all future projects.
The whole process was a good experience. Kevin has a great personality and is easy to work with. Kevin took the time to explain the pros and cons for the material for deck I was requesting. After receiving the quotes for the job we arranged the start date and a few days after I had a well built and good looking deck in my backyard. Good communication, on time, on budget, good result and friendly "can do" attitude.
Fantastic customer service! Highly recommended. Igor oversaw work done to our deck to create a new sunroom. He goes out of his way to get the job done the way the customer wants it.
Miguel replaced a porch railing on our front porch and did a great job. He was really responsive and asked lots of questions about how we wanted the railing to look. He was very thorough and made sure he knew exactly what we wanted. We are very happy with the quality of his work.
Mark renovated my deck and garden. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him. He was always super responsive and is very flexible. He always tried his best to accommodate our needs. Overall very happy with the experience!
I hired CFI Construction to frame a new 501 sq ft building on our property to be used as a sewing studio. Today, they started and finished framing the walls, and enclosing the entire building with shear panels. Next week, when the trusses arrive, they are going to install them and install roof shearing. I learned of CFI two days ago on Thumbtack. Having observed their work today, I feel like the A team just fell out of the sky into my project. They are phenomenal in every respect. Their work, honesty, and work ethic are models for the construction industry. They have years of experience framing large projects, both residential and commercial. I was humbled that they chose to work on my project. They are not solely a framing company. They can build a building from start to finish, I just happened to hire them for framing. Having enjoyed today's experience, I'm going to use them for more phases of our project. Both the owner of the company (Steve) and one of his sons (Drew) were on site the entire day, as well as their crew of 5 framers. I wanted to write this review now, even though they still have trusses to install and the front porch to frame, because I want other users of Thumbtack to have the same benefit of a 1st class, licensed, professional construction company, as I did today. I strongly recommend that you seek out CFI Construction for your projects. They are the real deal. Thank you Steve and Drew.
