Very prompt and professional! Helped hang a large mirror for me and even quickly helped hang another project I had come up. Everything looks perfect!!! Hire Sergey for all your handyman needs!
Kev is awesome, very prompt and came on time. Very honest, was trying to help me over a phone to see If i can fix it myself, even before I hired him. Gave me hourly rates which he abide too. Possess years of experience in many traits especially plumbing. Would hire him again for any handyman need.
Stephen was quick to reply and did a fantastic job hanging some wall mounted shelves and glass white board. He has a great eye for detail. I would definitely hire him again.
David is fantastic; he is definitely going to be our go to guy for any handy services around the house from now on. We asked David for a couple of things that involved going down into our crawl space. He’s fixed our dryer exhaust, fixed plumbing leaks and installed a gas line. If I could give David 10 stars I would. He is says he will do the job and will work on it till the job is done. We couldn’t be happier finding a guy like him. I highly recommend using him for all your handyman needs.
Harp was great and professional. I had many small home repairs. I patched and paint my dry wall, mounted projector and two tvs. He mounted my Tv above the fireplace where another handyman failed to do so. He also installed my new shower and fixed my sink. I highly recommended him and want to work again with him.
I hired Carlos to repaint my studio apartment and he did a great job. He responded quickly to phone calls and texts, showed up on time and finished the project ahead of time. In addition, he cleaned my beam ceilings which I hadn't asked him to do, but I was glad he did. They looked great. He is also a nice, friendly guy and I would hire him again for any other handyman jobs I have.
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.
Brian was great! Very professional, punctual and responsive. He gave a fair estimate to fix our washer and dryer. When we needed a part he was nice enough to run over to Home Depot. He also showed us how to fix our mini refrigerator even though that was not included in our quote. He likes what he does and is always looking to learn more and that’s why he’s one of the best handyman’s around the area. Thanks Brian!
Ricardo was very responsive from original quote to completion. It was quick and easy to find a time that worked, and he was able to come at a somewhat late time which accommodated my work schedule. He worked quickly but thoroughly to fix the problem with my garbage disposal. He also cleaned up afterwards. I would hire Ricardo again for handyman work in the future.
I'm a real person, I work at a tech startup in SF, and just having moved to a new part of the city - didn't feel like assembling furniture AND having to unpack. I had some NON-IKEA, but similar, furniture that needed to be assembled. I had looked at some other popular task sites but they were showing me candidates that didn't exactly look "handyman-capable", and were conveniently charging ridiculous hourly rates. That's when I searched another local list and found Chao's post for "handyman services"; we easily negotiated a fair arrangement and he was able to come that SAME DAY. I was initially nervous waiting for him to arrive but when Chao showed up - I felt like I won the lottery. He brought his own tools and didn't want to waste time on small talk. THIS GUY IS SERIOUSLY A PROFESSIONAL HANDYMAN, & FURNITURE ASSEMBLY SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT. Within his first 5 minutes on site, He took that first furniture box with 1000 pieces and had methodically and systematically placed them in an orderly fashion and quickly began assembly -- paying strict accordance to instructions detail. WHEN CHAO WAS DONE, THERE WERE NO EXTRA OR MISSING PIECES!!! And, even though this furniture was "cheap", it was assembled as best as possible. Chao is an expert. I had some difficult space constraints that he had to work within but he just adapted. He had lots of tricks too, like unfolding the packaging box to protect my floor. Using a piece of cardboard to protect the furniture during hammer-assembly steps, etc... This guy is PROFESSIONAL and I highly recommend him.
Matt is awesome! Super personable and does great work! He follows his word and can make your vision a reality. I showed him some pictures of a wedding altar I wanted to build (in order to hold vintage doors) and he executed exactly what I was looking for! I will definitely have Matt back for my next project! I highly recommend you hiring Matt for any handyman or carpentry needs.
Ben was courteous and professional. He automatically knew we were a shoes-off home and respectfully worked with special care to be clean and neat. He brought his own large mat that spread open to collect any debris. He completed 8 light fixture replacement for us. He was organized and worked systematically. I appreciated his clear communication and taking the time to explain how the light fixture we had are made to be 'flush mount' yet will have few mm gap due to the way it slides into place. He spoke respectfully and patiently. Ben is clearly experienced and knowledgeable. I would recommend hIring Ben and I would not hesitate to hire him again for any additional kind handyman projects I have.
Ricardo was our handyman while we lived in Belmont, Redwood City and even when we moved to Alamo, California. He was an excellent carpenter, handyman and Jack-of-all-trades ... always accommodating and cheerful. He was punctual, reliable and very creative in home repair challenges...always thought "outside the box". Ricardo was always a pleasure to have around while working on projects in our homes. We wish we could have taken him with us when we moved to Eagle, Idaho -- we really miss him!!!
I needed some paint and other hauling. I decided at the same time I would get a new kitchen faucet installed. Every aspect was flawless and pleasant. Good communication, fast response, first rate work, and a fraction of the price of others. I will use for my other handyman needs.
Glee was very responsive . He came and fixed the issue the same day I called. He was professional, explaining and showing what was wrong and what the solution will be. He also quoted the job and stayed within that quote. I absolutely recommend him and will likely use him again for a handyman issue
Electrician came in to solve our problem at unbelievable price. He was done in less than an hour. Very friendly, knows what he is doing, and professional. Could not ask for more.
Fairly simple job (for a plumber). Replace sink drainage from disposal to wall. Had been plumbed for corner sink. He was replacing leaking flexible plastic pipes. I was called promptly, he called ahead and showed up on time, worked efficiently and charged a reasonable price I was happy to pay.
I would like to take this time to thank Dinh Nguyen for the excellent job he did for me. I had a leak in my kitchen sink so I posted my problem on line. Within minutes of the post, I received a call from Mr. Nguyen. I explained the problem to him, and he was able to come to my home within an hour of the phone call. He discovered where the leak was coming from and showed and explained the problem to me. The leak was coming from my faucet. So Mr Nguyen took me to Home Depot and we picked out a new faucet. We returned to my home, and he replaced the old faucet with the new faucet. Thanks also for leaving my kitchen in impeccable condition. I'd also like to say that the price was more than reasonable. So to anyone out there, if you are looking for a plumber, Dinh Nguyen is your man.
Mark is a great handyman with lot of experience with plumbing, electrical etc. He is very responsive and very nice to work with. We now have peace of mind that we can call Mark anytime something goes wrong and he'll be there to fix it. Thanks Mark!
My husband wanted to get our closet door fixed because it was alligned correctly. Davis came within’ an hour and got it fixed. very friendly guy. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable handyman.
I recently used Hairston to help with the assembly of an Ikea bed. We had scheduled an appt for 5 pm as delivery was supposed to be between 1 and 5. Ikea ended up delivering the item at 11 am. I contacted Hairston about possibly moving our time up. He responded quickly and fortunately he was able to come earlier. He was on time and did a wonderful job assembling the bed in a timely manner. He picked up after himself, and left the area as clean as it was when he got there. I highly recommend Hairston, and will definitely be using him again in the future for our handyman needs!
