I had a big double pane window that needed replacing. I was given a quote online but was revised upwards after David came to see the window. He needed my help to carry the window(which was ordered froma glass shop a week earlier after I accepted his bid) from a friend's truck. He and another friend worked for about 5 hours to install the new window. They managed to finish the job at about midnight. I had to call him back to caulk the new wood trim on the window. David is honest and I would use his service again.

I was in urgent need for a handyman, as a large part of a wall, insulation & floor in my storage closet was damaged by my leaking water heater. I decided to try Thumbtack and was very happy to see that Arisel from AA Cardenas reached out to me and said he can start work immediately. He was very prompt in replying, and very easy to reach on phone & text before, during and after the work was completed. When he came, he assessed the work to be done, gave me a very clear outline of materials needed and the labor cost. He told me he could finish the work in 2 days, which is exactly what my deadline was, and he did finish all the work in 2 days flat! He offered to go and pick up all the material from the hardware store, and worked till late on the first day to make sure he got as much work done as possible. He was very professional in putting up new insulation, patch sheet rock, applying texture to blend with existing wall texture and paint the area. He always cleaned up before he left and was very open to me asking questions about various things he was working on. Arisel was very nice to talk to as well, and he was accommodating to all my questions. He even came back 4 days later, at my request, to put floor molding. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with the work Arisel did, and would definitely hire him again.

Cruz was very responsive and came and assessed the rodent problem in my backyard. He even suggested that my neighbor's yard needed to be secured. He finished all the work in a timely and professional manner, came back to check traps, and further secure the garage. Cruz is a versatile and good handyman who specializes in rodent proofing. I highly recommend him.

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.

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.

Hired David, very honest in the quote and explained what needed to be done. I needed some baseboards replaced in my foyer, and the baseboards in the living room and dining room needed to be properly installed since my HOA sent their installers and they were terrible (HOA had to replace my hardwoods and the installers laid out the floor fine but baseboards looked terrible). He made a visit and inspected the areas, gave a quote and showed up at scheduled day/time, got to work and a few hours later the place was good to go....great job. I believe he is based in Southbay but covers the entire Bay Area. Any general carpentry/handyman type stuff, that you can't handle or just want to get done, I would recommend him.

Mike A. came out and provided a quote for doing the work of putting in new sheetrock in my bathroom. The work was done at the agreed upon times. They were on time and they finished in the timeframe they said they would. The finished work was great and just what I asked for. He is easy to work with, respectable, and does a good job. He also has some good stories to share!

I employed Milko to powerwash and stain my redwood deck. I found that he had all the characteristics that I look for in a contractor - punctuality, responsiveness, and professionalism. He was really concerned about making us happy, as opposed to just finishing the work and getting on with his next job. He was the first one that brought samples of finishes (not just showed us pictures). We were very pleased with his work and will use him again when we have something he can help us with

Conn did a great job fixing and replacing issues we had with our crown mounding, baseboards, and doors/jambs/casing. He has great workmanship and skill, and he very much cares how the finished product looks. I will hire him again for any carpentry work in the future. We've used several contractors on our fixer upper over the past 7 years, and he is by far the best we've used.

We hired South Bay Builders to do a residing job on our free standing / 75 year old garage. Justin gave us an competitive bid, he and his crew did excellent work and he finished early. On top of this Justin went the extra mile by tracking down the wide shiplap siding that matches the rest of our vintage look at no extra cost. This was a very pleasant surprise because after chatting with many contractors we were willing to settle for what is more commonly available today. When Justinn said he would try, I assumed it was unavailable and we would have to settle. I can count on one hand the number of times I have been pleasantly surprised on a project like this one - so I can absolutely recommend South Bay Builders!

Working with Bay Wide was a great experience. They were on top of communication and getting me info/quotes in a timely manner and their pricing was reasonable. They were great when they came to measure for my carpentry project- helped point out ideas and come up with solutions. The variety of skills they possess is great, they helped me demo, build shelves, paint, add electrical etc! They went above and beyond what I asked them to do and the end result is fabulous! I will absolutely contact them for projects in the future. Thank you!

Daniel has helped me tremendously. I work a lot and wanted all of those odds and ends done for the house. But I didn't have too much time to get quotes, supplies and make all of those decisions. I sat with Daniel and made a list starting with repairing the back deck. It was done very professionally and was at a very fair price. Second project was long awaited sliding out kitchen cabinet drawers (phew- has been so helpful!) Now he is moving along with my list but checks in with me periodically to see what my priorities are and what preferences I might have for each repair. I have had many people over the years come and not finish the work or do the job 1/2 way (I found out later)- Daniel is honest, flexible, fair and responsible. He makes sure the job is done correctly. He has recently moved out here from East Coast and I highly recommend him.
