Dave is more than outstanding. Not only is he professional, he can also think on this feet to resolve a very difficult door issues that we had for a long time. We live in a high end home and had 2 contractors work on the problem Each improved the situation slightly but the cause of the problem was never truly understood until Dave came along. One reputable door company even tried to sell me a new door. Initially, I was extremely wary of using someone from Thumbtack as there was no way to check credentials and bona fide references. Dave has certainly surprised us on the upside. He is cost conscious for his clients and does not recommend a more expensive solution if a cheaper one can be had. I watched Dave work the entire 2 hours he was here. He spent a great deal of time troubleshooting and then came up with a game plan that we both agreed would be ideal. He's a hard worker and an intelligent one at that. In the future, I will call on Dave to do maintenance work on our home without the slightest reservation. Ting P.

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.

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!

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.

After being given the run around from our home builder and the water heater company, Aqua Stat cane in and fixed the issue in 40 minutes. Another plumber had given his opinion on what was needed, but didn't want the job, after telling me the water heater needed 4 major parts, Oscar came in cleaned the burner and the thermo coupler with a wire brush, didn't put in any new parts and the water heater worked. It's great to know there are some contractors left that have the customers well being at heart. After 4 days of not having hot water, it was a relief to finally get someone who was willing to make it happen. Can't thank you enough Oscar :-)

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 had a complicated project where I had one universal remote/receiver controlling two ceiling fans. One of the ceiling fans stopped working. Before hiring Ben, I had 2 other contractors who couldn't fix the problem. Ben was the only one who has able to troubleshoot and solve the problem. His price is very reasonable as well. I will hire Ben for all my home electrical issues!

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.

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.

Brian did a office remodeling for me including demolition of a whole room, removing many built-in cabinets, rewiring, and finishing new walls. He mostly worked alone, but his work was meticulous. Brian is one of very very few contractors whom I can actually trust. (I have built a 8,000 s.f. house among other building projects, so I have experience with many contractors.) Brian will do what he promised, at the price he promised, within the time frame he promised. Highly recommended for all remodeling work. Thank you, Brian, for a job well done.

Nicki has been the designer for 2 of our home remodel projects. For our kitchen/dining room/living room she created an open contemporary multi-purpose fabulous space that we love every day! She coordinated with the contractor on all work. For our master bathroom/bedroom and den/2nd bath--again she executed great use of space, color, and design. We loved that she got what our personal tastes and design style was. She created original designs, including custom cabinetry and tile work.

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.

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!

With a wealth of knowledge and experience, MJH determined the best solutions to a number of complex repairs and additions including floor leveling, heating, plumbing and electric.

We are delighted with the results - our renovated house came out fantastic.

We met with several contractors and we chose Shaz because he was very knowledgeable and had great solutions to our concern for our home. Shaz told us straight that his estimate may not be the lowest or the highest, but it was apparent that he is very knowledgeable and particular about quality of his work. Shaz went above and beyond to make sure everything is done correctly and to our satisfaction. We are very satisfied with Shaz impeccable work, and excellent quality. We appreciate his professionalism, discipline, and awesome communication. Every impression we have about Shaz Construction is a Good One! We highly recommend this company.

I was able to schedule estimates with 5 contractors for my bathroom remodel. Each definitely had their own approach with a few being extremely pushy trying to talk me into doing work I didn't want to do! I believe Green line was the 3rd appointment I had and Manuel Sr & his son Manuel Jr definitely stood out to my family and I. They listened to what we wanted, gave me a few options and honest recommendations (which actually involved less total work = less money). I really appreciated the honest no pressure approach. It was also very clear to me that they had a lot of experience because they were able to point out a few things that no other contractor brought to my attention. Service: I'd say the entire process was pretty seamless, Jr or Sr were always available through call or text, no issues with cleanliness or picking up materials. They use a progress payment system so we paid them as they completed certain phases of work which I really liked. They were able to recommend retailers for the finish materials which was very helpful. Work Quality: Craftsmanship excellent, tiles were set beautifully and look stunning. About half way through we decided to go with their recommendation of doing level 5 texture through the vanity area into the bathroom (which they gave a VERY good price for), this was a great suggestion as it really helps in bringing a cleaner modern look. Paint, vanity and fixture installation were all done very nicely. Over all very satisfied, we will be calling Green Line back to do the guest bath in a few months. Price: They were not the cheapest estimate I received. I decided to hire them because they felt trustworthy. Which is a hard thing to achieve after one meeting. However I am EXTREMELY pleased with the price I paid for the finished product. They explained to me in out initial meeting that this type of finish work requires a certain amount of money to do properly which I completely understand now. They were also not the most expensive which is surprising for the transformation they accomplished. Thanks guys! -Christina

We were lucky enough to find and hire Michael McGuire as our general contractor. The scope of our job was quite large, as it was a complete home remodel. Our remodel included a new addition, new kitchen, new bathrooms with a complete new interior and exterior design plan with modern upgrades to each space. Michael worked with our architect to design a new home that fit both our design aesthetic and our budget. Michael not only assisted in the design process but carried out every vision perfectly. His communication with us throughout the entire process was excellent. As plans changed and unexpected issues arose (which was to be expected), Michael always had options lined up that were not only satisfactory but timely. We get compliments regularly by people walking by our home. We couldn't be happier with all his interior finish work as well. He is not only an excellent general contractor but a true craftsman.
