Sergey couldn't fix my issue but he was really nice, seemed very competent and didn't charge me for the job since the repair wasn't complete. It was a tough repair so I'd still hire Sergey for other projects.

Repair of undersink water lines and hot water thermostat. Kevin was fantastic. He helped me figure out what was going on by first talking to me on the phone to see what the problem was. Despite my lack of knowledge, he took up 30 minutes of his time on the phone to help me figure out how to fix my hot water heater problem. After wading through a lot of road traffic, he repaired our plumbling lines and toilet stopper (he picked one up for us).

While searching the internet for someone to remove our 12-year-old carpet from our two-bedroom flat, I found many referrals for carpet installation and floor refinishing, but nothing for carpet removal only. I then ran across a listing from Thumbtack, and thought I’d give it a try. The site was very easy to use. It asked me specific questions regarding the job, and within minutes I received emails from three people in my area that included price quotes. I chose one (Brian’s Handyman Services) and communicated further with Brian to clarify details. He booked the job for the next day. Brian sent me a text stating that he was on his way, and he arrived on time. He brought Carlos with him and the two of them began working immediately. If you’ve ever removed carpet, you know it’s a tedious job: it includes pulling up the carpet and pad, cutting them into pieces, pulling out all of the staples from the floor, removing the tack strips, and disposing of the carpet and pad. Brian and Carlos not only did that, but they moved our large pieces of furniture around in order to accomplish it. When they left, there was NO mess for us to clean up. Furniture was back into place and floors were swept. Brian even bolted four large pieces of furniture back onto the wall that had to be unbolted and moved in order to remove the carpet under them. Brian stuck with his original quote, even though the job turned out to be larger than expected. I can’t say enough kind things about Brian and Carlos and the professional job they did. They were fantastic! If you want someone who is honest, fair, flexible, and easy to work with, I highly recommend Brian’s Handyman Services for anything you need done at your home—and it sounds like he can do everything. You can contact Brian through Thumbtack on the internet.

He was honest about how much work actually needed to be done. Other electricians were telling me I needed to do a bigger repair than necessary. It might have just been different perspectives on the problem and not intentional dishonesty on their part. However, his repair suggestion actually matched what PG&E told me when they came out to do a diagnosis. It saved me tons of money, which I appreciated as a single parent on a teacher's salary.

Amazing! Juan completed a job that two other electricians could not (and one at All Star Wiring still charged me for no results). There was old wiring at my 112 year-old house, and Juan was able to find old insulation that needed repair. I could not be more pleased. Also, he replaced two lower-wattage circuit breakers that should hopefully solve the issue of constant tripping due to space heaters. I look forward to hiring Juan to install ceiling fans and other jobs in future. Don't mess around - hire him, and he will politely, quickly and efficiently fix your issue. He definitely did not try to fleece me as some other "pros" quoted.

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!

Max provided an amazing service. Everything about his was professional, friendly, capable and service oriented. His charge was extremely reasonable for the work he did. Not only did he effectively fix my furnace, he also did a great job as a plumber. I really appreciate that he made it a fixed price job - so I knew exactly how much my charge was going to be, and everything was completely transparent. There were several cases where he could have charged me more, or suggested a higher priced service, but he didn't. Max was outstanding both in his capability and service level. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone!

Craig cleaned our windows inside and out with great care and thoroughness. He also cleaned the screens and replaced them properly and locked the windows. He recommended a repair company for our broken screens (The Screen Guys) and brought all the right equipment, including multiple size ladders, for hard-to-reach second story windows. We will definitely call AllStar Windows for future window-cleaning. Highly recommend his company.

I had a water leak issue that was coming through my downstairs ceiling. Issue was due to a backed up shower drain line. Found Vyron on Thumbtack and he contacted that evening to set a time to come by an assess the job. I also needed base Board for the downstairs as well as reinstalling tile in 4 spots from a previous radiant floor heating leak. Vyron was right on time. His quote was very reasonable so I hired him. The time Vyron arranged to begin my repairs was again, right on time. He immediately began his work with a crew. He unclogged the shower drain, removed the damaged drywall and reinstalled new drywall. Installed all the base board and reinstalled the tile. He quoted a time frame of 6-8 hours. He completed everything in 7 hours. He and his crew were very clean and organized. Vyron is professional and friendly. I highly recommend Vyron Salinas. Thanks Brett Larson

Rudy and crew were very professional with the exterior paint job of our home. He was very thorough and detailed with the preparation of the home. He was very methodically and neat with the painting process. Once the job was complete, our house was left cleaned and all trash was removed. We would definitely recommend his service.

We were thrilled with M.P. Movers. Marquis Philip was responsive to messages, showed up on time, moved things from one place and Ikea to our home 1-1/2 hours away and assembled an Ikea day bed. He is reliable, a hard worker and a very nice guy. He did an excellent job. We would hire him again, and will refer him to others.

I can't recommend Ulloas Painting enough! We needed a home painted and touched up. They worked with our timeline and budget, made money-saving recomendations, were a pleasure to have around, and even helped match colors when we realized we forgot a few.

Howard is a true gem. His communication is excellent and he was able to make a repair job in SF painless, and since I live in another state, it was so nice being able to trust Howard to take care of everything without me being there. I will definitely hire Howard again.

Didn't have a chance to work with Brandon this time since home depot did the installation for us. But I am really impressed with his professionalism and responsiveness. Will definitely try to work with him next time.
