Steve proved himself to be an excellent choice for me to have some home improvement work taken care. Within 10 minutes of placing my request on Thumb Tac, I had received a response from Steve with an estimate of how much it would cost to do the work site unseen. Within an hour he was onsite looking over the project; we were able to quickly negotiate a fair price to have the work done with Steve including the demolition and haul-away of a weathered wooden shed and the spa pump, heater, and other items stored within it. My primary request was to have a somewhat large, very weathered wood deck demoed and hauled away to a landfill/dump. Steve turned out to be an easy-going, personable, and exceptionally hard worker very knowledgeable in many areas of home improvement, construction and demolition. He carefully and expertly executed the demolition and haul away of the entire wood deck. – A lot of work. Steve worked his a$$ off to demo the deck and haul it away in an efficient, timely, and proper manner. As a result, I asked Steve to also provide a power wash to my house paying special attention to my very weathered front walkway pavers. Throughout the project Steve followed through on every promise and worked especially hard to bring out the best with the power washing of the pavers providing an exceptionally noticeable improvement after removing a lot of baked in dirt, grime, and fungus. There were a couple of times when Steve could not make it back to continue the work at the agreed upon time due to unexpected ‘life’ events, which I understand happens to all of us. However, even given a couple of unexpected hold-ups, he made it to the site every day, kept me in the loop with what was going on, and gave me a discount to compensate for the inconvenience and hold-up in getting to the site due to these interruptions. He went so far as to show up on a Sunday to coat and seal the newly power washed front walkway pavers. All-in-all, it was a great experience working with Steve. He was reliable, a hard worker, very proficient and knowledgeable, and very competitively priced. I look forward to having him back for other home improvements in the near future. Thanks for a great job, Steve! -Bob
The best experience, ever, I have had with any sort of trade/contractor. Amazing! We talked about the job at 10:ooam - he called me at 2:00pm to say it was DONE. Great service, nice guy. A+
Hyde Handcraft was one of the most professional, hard working and honest contractors I have ever worked with! When considering which contractor to hire I had multiple bids. Hyde gave a very fair bid but was actually not the cheapest. I decided to use them based on the other reviews on Thumbtack. I am so glad I did! They always showed up when they said they were going to, or they would give plenty of notice to a change in time. They moved furniture carefully and cleaned up every space cleaner than it was before! They were so kind to our kids always talking to them and never annoyed at the constant questions from our 2 year old :). They put so much pride in their work...while installing all of our crown molding it would have been easy to not work with the crooked wall. Yet they spent way more time than they planned making it look perfect! They also installed exterior doors for us and they did an amazing job! I will definitely be using Hyde Handcraft again for any other work I need done and I highly recommend them to anybody who wants a fair price, professional contractors and outstanding quality. Josiah
I hired Donaldo & Manuel to remove the popcorn ceilings in my condo and to also remove the 'orange peel' texture (ugly, 'pimply' drywall finish sprayed on by drywall contractors) that was on every single wall. The last step was to paint the entire place. D & M came to my house to bid the job and I received a quote the next day. They came over to my house second time to show me samples of smooth drywall texture finishes to choose from. They were on time, asked questions and answered all my questions. Much of the 1st day D&M was on the job was spent prepping my unit. I recently had new laminate flooring installed which was a big concern for me considering there were so many messy, scraping/drywall sanding and painting steps to follow. Each day great care was taken with the prepping for whatever step was being done. The first step to be completed was the removal of the popcorn ceiling. The second step was putting a thin coat of drywall over the existing texture, letting it dry, lightly sanding and then smoothing and lightly texturing the final coat of drywall mud for the finish. The last step was rolling the paint on the walls and painting the trim color. The crucial and important thing for me was the care that D & M took every single morning to re-lay plastic and paper covering over my new floor. Every evening they would remove it and clean up meticulously as possible before leaving. It was amazing. D&M arrived every day promptly at 8AM and worked a full day. They were friendly, courteous and very concerned with my satisfaction every step of the way. They always asked questions, never assuming anything which was great. I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat because this 6 day paint job was done with the utmost concern for quality (theirs) and satisfaction (mine and theirs) at every step.

I flip homes in the North County. I have worked with Carlos for nearly 3 years on a number of custom remodeling projects when flipping homes. He is easy to work with and his guys are skilled. They are not the type of contractors who will rip you off. They work around my budget and Carlos's guys deliver quality work. I'm happy that I found them.
After trying to get quotes Robert Lindstrom Nationwide Secure Inc. was the only company to contact me back promptly (I contacted 3 other construction companies none of which called back!) He was very patient with us as our schedules constantly change. Provided excellent expertise on what needed to be fixed. Even waited for a while before was let onto the property. Have not yet booked anything to be repaired but good business begins with excellent "customer service." Because of that will definitely consider for other work we need to get done for commercial office and home repairs.
Mario is highly skilled at what he does, and he's very affordable and also well resourced and networked. Plus, he comes with a great number of ideas to help you think through what you really want with a project. I appreciated that. In addition to painting, he can help you with yardwork, landscaping and small construction projects. We hired him to paint the entire exterior of the house and also hired him for clearing out our entire front yard. We are also considering him for a job that involves a wood covering in the back. I will say that, without a doubt, we are extremely impressed with the look of the yard and the house. See the before and after photos. Other contractors have even complemented his work! He was also very accommodating when were trying to choose the colors, bringing color samples and a block of color slides to help us decide. I only saw two issues with Mario: my Spanish is terrible and his English is not very proficient, so we had some communications issues. Also, he was behind schedule on the painting job and wasn't forthcoming in explaining his exact needs or a precise timeline to finish the job on time. In the end, the house looks amazing, though. Great improvement. So, despite the difficulties, I would still go back in time to hire him.
Matt did a great job on demolition of my old floor and installing a new solid hardwood floor in my condo at a good price. It was definitely a complicated project, I started with another contractor who made mistakes. Fortunately Matt was able to turn around the project and it turned out as good as I hoped. He was easy to work with, definitely treated the job with care like he was his own home, was good at explaining all the work and answering all my questions. He holds himself to very high standards. Definitely would work with him again myself and recommend to others for your home remodeling projects.
David was extremely knowledgeable, worked fast, and kept the job well under budget. Great contractor, and kept the out of state homeowner as well as the agent updated constantly. Would recommend and hire again!
I am the owner of two duplexes. I had a bad experience with a previous contractor, and called Mario and explained the situation to him. He made a really bad situation turn into a very positive situation. I hired Edgewood Remodeling to install laminated flooring in three bedrooms. I was on a timeline to get this project completed in a hurry so I could rent my duplex out and get the highest rent possible. Edgewood Remodeling worked at a high pace and completed my flooring project in one day, and did a excellent job. This is the second time I have hired Edgewood Remodeling and the results were amazing. Next time I need anything done at my house I will definitely call Edgewood Flooring. Thanks Michele
I found Chris when I was given one of his fliers by a friend who raved about his work. I only deal with licensed contractors, since I've been burned before and there's little recourse when they disappear or change their phone#, plus eventually I have a lot of work I want to get done and I want it all legit in case I need permits,etc... And licenses tell me a person has made the effort to put his time in, learn a trade, and become licensed. It's cost me more money to fix things that have been done sub-par over the years. The paint on my house trim was peeling and I could see the wood was becoming damaged in some areas, which means more money to fix rotted wood, so I was anxious to get the exterior paint done. I shopped around. Chris gave me a fair estimate, plus he was confident in his work and I saw the results at my neighbor's house. I loved that he was very respectful of my house, my yard, clean up, and his work was so clean! He gave me a head's up that some of the wood may be more damaged once he sanded the old paint. He showed me the damaged wood and gave me the option to fix it or not, which of course needed to be done. He replaced some old window sills and window frames. You can't even tell which ones he replaced! Everything matches the other windows! I couldn't be more pleased. After a few weeks I saved some money and was still so excited about the outside of my house finally getting done right that I decided to get some work done in the bathroom. My house is 90 yrs old, the interior walls have plaster not drywall, which many guys don't want to touch, but Chris said "No problem!" it's one of his specialities. He explained what's involved, wrote an estimate, and now I've got one bathroom done and it looks AWESOME! My husband is impressed. We're going to have a dinner party with friends to celebrate. Chris is a solid guy with good old fashioned work ethic. We have only great things to say about his work! After the new year we're going to save money and have a deck built so my husband can barbecue outdoors. Thumbs up times a hundred!
Hired Tom for my TI job in Carlsbad. He was straight forward with the whole process and finished on time and under budget, two things that were very important for me. Had a great crew of sub contractors as well. Thanks Tom.
Pedro is not only a great guy but an awesome worker. He shows up when he says he will and stays until he finishes the job. He works well around other contractors and is able to complete a variety of tasks.
GW Construction helped me with a remodel. The job consisted of uprighting a 12 ft. support beam and approximately 25 drywall panels. The price was a lot less than other contractors that bid on the job and they completed the job in one week. Matt and Jody communicated with me on a daily basis asking how the job was going. They were absolutely dedicated to my satisfaction. The contractors that worked on the project were professional and made me laugh all day long. They even let me know when they saw a better idea for my remodel or saw something that we needed to tweak to make it look better. No fuss, no hassle, no problems. Matt gives you his price and sticks to it, even if something comes up and a little more work needs to be done. Overall a great experience and a job well done!
Like all projects, there will be overrun and surprises a long the way. Plan ahead and make sure you detail out what you want to do. Down to even measuring for the most successful project and cost savings on materials. Bill is a honest hard working man and is in high demand. He works around the clock on multiple projects so scheduling was probably the most difficult part of the project. But Bill is responsive and adds value to our project. We ran into a few issues that Bill was able to work through. Even after having paid Bill fully, he still came back to fix issues/flaws we've found without complaint. My only recommendation to those looking to hire Bill is to make sure to know what you want (design, materials etc), write it down, and walk through it with them first. They aren't mind readers. Follow up is key. Also make sure you have enough time for your project because surprises always cause delay! Usually projects are one and done and the contractors just walk off. With Bill, we developed a relationship and understanding. Would I hire Bill again? I already have. Bill is honest, hardworking and responsive.
Nationwide Secure did the tile flooring and sink installation for my bathroom. By far, they have been the most responsive and professional company out of all contractors I have hired. From time of thumbtack post to job completion was one week, and throughout, Nationwide Secure was straightforward and an overall pleasure to work with. I could not be happier with my finished bathroom. My initial bathroom setup was a bit awkward, but Robert did some creative work with the tiles to make the finished product look good. During the work, there was also some dry rot on the walls that he removed free of charge, just to do a thorough and complete job. The end product was stunning. Thanks Robert!
I got to know Craig Bortman of Boardwalk Construction a couple of years ago, when he took on the challenge of converting my 40 year old home in Corona Del Mar to a state of the art home of 2016-17. The project ended up touching essentially every wall, roofing, flooring, cabinetry, all plumbing and electricals etc. etc.... Craig managed to provide excellent balance of costs , quality and schedule. He showed great creativity and great attitude. He became a very reliable partner through this exercise. I will have no hesitation in recommending Boardwalk Construction for any one in need of major remodeling or new construction.
Simply the Best! We setup several interviews with local contractors to replace our 1980s roof, that's when we met mike galante of Edison. His honesty, integrity and faith in his company struck us as so genuine that we didn't hesitate to cancel the other interviews and hire Edison. That turned out to be the best decision we made and the results are absolutely stunning They worked within our budget and went above and beyond, paying close attention to even the smallest details. Our project manager, Mike Galante, told us from the outset that "communication is key" and true to his word he was always available to us to answer any questions or concerns and addressed everything in a very timely manner. Of course there were a few minor issues that came up but there was no "defensive BS", if something needed to be changed Mike took care of it in a respectful and professional manner. All of the different work crews headed by Edison and Mika including the demolition crew, Hymen and his amazing roofing skills, They properly taped off the work area from the rest of the house and at the end of every work day each crew completely cleaned up and took away all debris so there was never any mess at our home. We really appreciated how extremely respectful all of the crews were to us and our home. The craftsmanship and quality of everything that was done is top notch (believe me when I say we are extremely picky and exacting) and we now have a beautiful roof that looks like it cost three times what what our budget was. The whole experience had very minimal stress and was actually quite pleasurable! We are looking forward to working with Edison for other projects in our home and can honestly highly recommend them! Great price, excellent job, and our home is now more energy efficient.
We had a complete bath overhaul, including removing walls, done by Jaber and his team. From the start he was engaged in our home and treated us better than just being his next customer. We got some ideas from contractors, Jaber came in with ways to make it better that other contractors couldn't offer us when getting bids. At times it felt he was more excited about our house than we were. All of our concerns were taken care of and our expectations surpassed throughout the job. Jaber absolutely get our strongest possible recommendation for your next project.
The owner Zady did a great job from start to finish. He gave us proper expectations and was very respectful throughout his work. He was very understanding of my sickly mother and pregnant wife and was able to accommodate a difficult time availability to make sure all of us are comfortable. Other than his spotless work, what made him stand out even more so than other contractors is how well he cleaned up the job site and left it cleaner than before he came. Great owner, great prices and excellent work!
The Remcon team listened to what we wanted to accomplish with our kitchen remodel, worked with the materials we chose, provided insight on what was going to work for our needs and in our house, kept us informed on the status of the project and the schedule of events happening day-to-day, and were on top of every detail throughout the entire renovation process. We are very happy with our new, gorgeous kitchen and it's exactly as we had hoped it would turn out when we started this process. We would definitely use Remcon again for any future remodeling projects!
