As a handyman, Dave is right on. He is versatile and knows what he is doing. If he doesn't, he figures it out given his innate ability to problem solve. His work is clean and he works efficiently. I will recommend Dave to my friends and family. Also, he is timely. When he says he'll be there, he is there. And if not, he will call. Larry National City.Aug 23, 2017David McArthur's reply
David did an excellent job! He was very personable yet extremely professional. He quickly understood the problem with my bathroom and took care of it the very next day! You don't need to look any further, David and his team are the ones to go with!Oct 17, 2019Verified
I went with David and team through gut feeling and ofcourse Thumbtack reviews. David and his team are extremely professional - they got my house painted - provided me estimate of the time committment and ensured its done on time. David and his partner Zack are extremely meticulous in their job - in all respects - communication (F2F, text, email), in person work, not shabby (some contractors don't pick up after themselves - these guys clean up and more), and very helpful as well I loved working with these guys and strongly recommend. I plan to use their services for next few projects as well.Aug 26, 2019Verified

Dave was prompt and responsive. He ensured the job was done not only functionally correct but also that it aesthetically looked good. I would definitely use him again!Jun 1, 2019VerifiedDavid McArthur's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Most work is done by flat rate per job. Below are some pricing guidelines I use Wall tile installation for backsplash $35/sq ft Wall tiles if using a herringbone pattern $45/sq ft Floor tile installation $5sq ft over concrete Interior painting starts $1/sq ft walls Interior painting starts $1.5/sq ft ceilings (Minimums for small jobs and Discounts for larger jobs)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First we need to know the scope of work. On small jobs this can be done with pics or by messaging online. For remodels we complete a brief walkthrough so we understand just what the client is wanting the completed project to be. Next, we provide the quote, accept a deposit and schedule the dates to complete the work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I began in construction over 20 years ago when I went to trade school. I then worked as a union carpenter framing residential homes. I moved on to working with crews that completed all aspects to of home building. In time I began working for myself remodeling, purchasing and flipping.
