Kevin was responsive, communicative and clear. He arrived when he said he would. was knowledgeable about sprinkler and irrigation system mechanics and quickly grasped our specific layout. He worked quickly, needed very little direction and put a long-term plan in place for maintenance and optimization of the system. AND - he cleaned up after himself! We will be using Kevin for all of our irrigation needs moving forward
Patrick was absolutely amazing. As a supervisor, I requested his service for one of my clients to assemble a bunk bed. Tania told me that her daughter "felt like a princess" once the bed was done. He was fast, he was efficient, he was professional. 10 out of 10 would hire again.
Stephen is a genius of picture hanging. He’s prompt, fastidious and extremely professional. I will use his services again.
Carlos did a fantastic job helping me install screen doors, as well as hanging shelves, hanging a curtain rod and a few other general tasks. I needed to shorten some IKEA wall shelves to fit my wall and Home Depot said it couldn't be done -- Carlos did it! He is friendly and courteous as well. Would recommend.
Amazing! Cruz exceeded all of our expectations and was a tremendous help in installing our office. He helped us with everything from installing glass whiteboards into brick to assembling cabinets. He work is impeccable and he understands how to do any job rigth the first time. Beyond his outstanding handyman and time management skills, it was a so enjoyble working with him. I will continue to utilizehis services on a regular bases with all of my design projects.
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.
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.
Walter Agosto is responsive and professional. We had a huge yard cleanup project with overgrown hedges, dead trees and plants and mounds upon mounds of leaves and weeds. The amount of work needed should have taken a week of pulling, chopping, trimming, etc., but Walter had 90% of it done in one day. I was amazed and delighted. His price was reasonable and his pleasant demeanor was the extra service I appreciated. We've decided to hire him for regular maintenance as well.
Carlos and his crew had been doing maintenance for work than 10years. They are great! I would highly recommend them.
Gleo is one of the most honest handymen I've had the pleasure of hiring. He came to our home, checked out our AC and pointed out how the air filter was clogged and the mesh around the condenser outdoor was dirty. He replaced the filter on his own dime and also cleaned the mesh around the condenser to improve the airflow and it fixed the problem. He recommended that I check the filter and the area around the condenser frequently and do my own preventative maintenance so that I don't have to spend money on a professional in the future at the cost of his own future business. I am glad I hired Gleo and whole heartedly recommend him for any handyman projects. I'll be hiring him definitely for my next project.
They were very friendly and profesional with their job gave me an affordable price will definitely use their services again for future projects
Charles is very nice and professional: 1) On Friday I told him I was picking up my toilet on Saturday, asked him if he could install it on Sunday. And he did! Very much appreciated his super quick response! Especially knowing he is in the middle of a bigger job. 2) Though there were some unexpected issues (the existing floor flange and wall valve), he was trying and trying and then made it work, which showed his experience and commitment to get job done. 3) My Toto toilet and Brondell Swash installation job well done. He cleaned up the old glue and caulking, and put new nice caulking, which looks much better than the previous one. 4) His charge is very reasonable and with very good value. I will sure call him in case I have other jobs.
Howard did a fantastic job installing my shelving unit and large mirror. He was quick to reply to all my communications leading up to the job, has a professional and trusting demeanor, and most importantly he completed the tasks in a timely, efficient manner. I will definitely recommend his services to others and will hire him again for my future handyman needs. Thanks again Howard!
I'm very happy with Quick Lawn Care. Bin has given an exception pricing with the fence replacement work with great workmanship and quality material. Thank you for your prompt and professional service.
Damian was really professional while on the job. He performed quality workmanship by replacing my 3 sprinkler heads with new ones, and also adjusting a few to get better water coverage. He knows his job very well. I will retain his services again. I would also Highly recommend him to anyone in need of sprinkler or irrigation services. Daniel V.
Enrique showed up on time and went above and beyond for the extensive one-time weeding project I hired him for. Not only did he beautifully clear the areas we discussed he also cleared a few additional small areas and also cleared all the weeds in the sidewalk/walkways/driveway edges. He even edged the yard while he was there. Everything was left immaculately clean after he was done. I've decided to hire him for bi-weekly lawn maintenance as I was so thoroughly impressed with his timeliness, responsiveness, fair prices and high quality work.
Great work! Courteous and efficient. Definitely would hire again.
Keith brought a crew of 3, led by Martin, did a great job installing a 6 station automatic irrigation system at my house. Most of the install was bubblers and drips, including a large garden bed. The work required removing a ~20 year old system, hooking into the existing pipes, and doing some plumbing for the back yard (teeing off pipes in the basement, routing PVC outside, burying the line to the valves). I liked the communication, especially when unexpected things happened or when our schedules didn't line up perfectly. The estimate was spot-on when it comes to time, and slightly higher due to unexpected things w.r.t. materials, but that's totally fine. Keith and Martin always offered me choices when it comes to lower cost versus better looking or higher quality, went through the install with me and made sure everything worked. They also talked through maintenance, what is more likely to break over time, what warrantee they offer, etc. My wife and I are super happy with the work.
We had been paying general contractors pricing for jobs around the house that we knew we could get lower competitive bids for. Karla sent Miguel out to access our project needs. In having Miguel review our project list, we found out that they are very reasonable and guaranteed the work. They made our project easily manageable; within our budget and busy schedule (even Saturdays if necessary). While we occupied our home, Miguel painted the interior and exterior of our house. Miguel's crew paid attention to dust controls within the house, working around two large dogs in the house and yards and privacy issues with family members. The crews attention to detail was impressive, Miguel quickly resolved any issue that came up. Miguel has many talents other than painting, and was given other projects around our property. We will use this company again.
Denny was a fantastic HVAC contractor. My husband is a general contractor and we recently relocated to SF. Denny installed anentire single family home new HVAC system (we remodeled down to the studs) and was highly professional, hard working, and delivered excellent work on time. We'd highly recommend him for anyone looking for HVAC work and we will definitely use him again on future projects.
I was impressed with the quality of work that Shaping and Restoring offered me. Anselmo trimmed three of my rounded shape trees perfectly. He also worked on our oak tree, willow trees and planted some beautiful roses in my garden. I didn’t know Anselmo could also help me with my old sprinkles that didn’t work, he replaced my old irrigation system including an old sprinkler timer that I did not know how to use. I was beyond satisfied with the quality of work and great customer service I was provided with. I highly recommend Shaping and restoring.
