I had a list of work items for indoor and outdoor. Luis quickly responded to my request on Thumbtack and arrived next day to review the requirements. He made proper notes with drawings and sent me a $ estimate for each work (much lower than others) via email along with his latest availability. He was able to relocate a big heavy patio deck, construct a planter box, build new pull out drawers & shelves for kitchen cabinets and install new security door. He was punctual everyday and flexible to make some modifications during the job. He also helped me couple of times in going to Home Depot to get the raw materials in his truck. I really liked his honesty and quality of work and would recommend Luis for general contractor work.

Details: 2 - 5 hours (A few different projects) • Repairs • Installation • Assembly • Deck or porch • Bedroom • Windows • Home

Luis is great and I would definitely recommend him! He did great work and did not rush the work and was very patient in explaining what he was planning on doing. Very transparent on the costs. He put in a new fire rated door for me and it fits so well and opens smoothly. Will definitely go to him for any other carpentry work that might be needed in the future.

Details: Exterior door (e.g. front door, patio door) • 1 door • Standard • Wood • Yes, the new door replaces an existing door • No, I would like the pro's help in purchasing the door • Install locks or hardware • Home

Really enjoyed working with Luis. He created a new drawer for an old vanity that had been damaged by a water leak. His effort to match the stain and the fit of the new piece to the old vanity was excellent, and the cost was very reasonable. He kept me abreast of the rebuild and purchased special wood for the job. Throughout, he was professional, punctual and committed to quality work.

Details: Repair existing cabinets • 1 - 5 cabinets • No existing cabinets to remove • No, I will need the carpenter to provide the cabinets • Bathroom • Home

I just love it when my customers have a happy face at the end of each job. Arleen as you seen I do not walk away until the whole job is complete. I do not like to do the disappearing act like others. when I tell a customer I am yours tell until the end I mean it. thank you Arleen for your nice review 😊

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I would rather meet a customer in person and discuss what they need or want before giving them a quote its better and safer for both parties I do not want to over charge but I also do not want to under bid my self I am in the buiseness of making a home owner happy at the end of each job. that's why I choose to call my service your friendly neighborhood handyman like back in the old days. I feel like an honest days work for a honest days pay.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    it depends what you call a process it all depends on the type of task that's involve.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    builders trade in San Antonio Texas. I took drafting in high school. but my biggest achievement is 42 years hands on the field. learning from books have a lots of words and knowledge but life skills are the best teaching in life no book offers that.
