I had hired David Gomes to dismantle my cot and assemble it again in the bedroom. He arrived on time and brought all the tools required. He does not charge by the hour unlike other handymen/carpenters and charges only according to the effort involved in the job. His charges are very reasonable. He seemed very sincere and he helped me hang a rail in the kitchen for free. I definitely recommend him !

We initially contacted Albino to get a quote for interior painting. We liked him right away, and ended up chatting about other projects we were thinking about doing. We were thrilled when he said his team could do the work we had in mind within our timeline, and that he could manage the project! An overview of the work: - After they did demolition, it was revealed that large sections of our hardwood floors were damaged. Albino's team replaced the damaged sections so you would never know which wood is original and which is new, and refinished all of the hardwood floors throughout the house - the before and after is amazing! - They re-did 2 bathrooms - one of which required skilled plumbing work like moving a toilet, retiling the shower and floor, and replacing a single sink vanity with a double sink vanity. That bathroom is probably our favorite room in the house! - They did the paint job as initially discussed and painted every square inch of the inside of our house! This included painting our outdated oak kitchen cabinets and installing updated knobs, and the cabinets now look great! - There were countless other things the team did - like laying down laminate flooring in the kitchen and hooking up new kitchen appliances, installing overhead lights and dimmers, installing our new front doors as well as interior doors, and picking up supplies on as needed basis. Albino is trustworthy, fair, accountable, responsive, and kind. Each person on his team has their specialties and he is good at resource allocation to manage the client's costs. We felt like we were in good hands with Albino, and wholeheartedly recommend that you reach out to him for any projects you're considering!

I was in a time crunch, and needed a falling fence repaired asap. Matt responded quickly to my initial request, as well as every subsequent email/text. We scheduled a visit the next morning, where he inspected the damage, and described a couple of options for the repair. That same evening, he sent us a quote with a reasonable and competitive price, and luckily was able to squeeze us into his schedule, despite only a couple days notice. The first day of the job, Matt and his team showed up on time, and got straight to work tearing out our old, rotting fence. Their work was clean and tidy, and they even made the extra effort to accommodate us in removing all of the debris that day, as we were scheduled to have photos of the yard taken. They returned the next morning to construct a beautiful, new fence, built to the highest standards. Afterwards, they cleaned up, ensured our yard was returned to it's original condition, and even helped us out by taking some extra yard compost with them, which had been left behind by the city. In the past, my experience w/ other contractors in general had been less than positive. Cost, communication, and especially workmanship on several jobs had become such a concern, that recently, I have been simply attempting most projects myself, if at all possible. My experience with Matthew Kelly Construction has been a breath of fresh air compared to these other interactions. Throughout the entire job, he and his team were incredibly considerate, accommodating, and some of the friendliest people I have ever worked with. Not only would I hire Matt again in a heartbeat, I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for quality carpentry/construction work.

Derrick really worked wonders considering the non-standard existing door frame that I had to work with. The work looks great and I very pleased with the results. I would recommend Definitive Installations for any finishing carpentry work.

I hired Jasper from My Apartment Is Better Than Yours. I think they did a terrific job at a very reasonable price. I'm really pleased that I decided to go with them. I had a number of unusual carpentry tasks to complete when I moved to my new place. The windows were old and the wood was irregular and moldy, so the wood around the antique glass panels needed to be replaced. I was told those windows hadn't been opened in 40 years, but now they work perfectly and you'd never know the wood wasn't original. Also, several doorways lacked doors when I moved in, and were unusual rounded shapes cut into the stucco without doorframes. Jasper was able to make me custom doors with antique iron-wrought handles, and they look awesome. I also needed threshholds worked on, cabinets put up, new benches made for my roof deck, a custom projector and screen put in, antique chandeliers installed, a lock repaired... and I'm probably forgetting one or two things. They are in the process of putting the finishing touches on my humidor (they had to build me custom legs for it), and it's going to look spectacular. Anyway, they knocked it all out of the park. They were prompt and clean and didn't cause much of a disturbance despite all the work they were doing. They'll be my go-to for anything I need done in the future. I definitely recommend them.

If you are looking for someone to install hardwood floors in your home, look no further. Raul of Razo Wood Company is your man. Raul just completed installing hard wood floors throughout my 3 bedroom house in Fremont, Ca. I couldn't be more happy with his flawless craftsmanship. My floors are beautiful and the transitions from one room to another are seamless. The house looks like a new home with the newly installed wood floor. They are the highlight of my home. Not only is Raul a very talented craftsmen but I found him to be honest, hard-working, sincere and very respectful. He will go the extra mile to make sure you are happy with the results of his labor. You can't go wrong using Raul to install your new floors. He will, not doubt, impress you with his amazing work. - Pamela Y

Conn did an amazing job for us too. I agree with many of these reviews in that Conn has a very high attention to detail and is very trustworthy. In fact, our general contractor said, "Conn is one of the best carpenters I have ever seen". He re-did our entire stairway and railing! I would recommend Conn to anyone.

Pedro has completed two jobs for my family now and I just asked him to come do a third job! The first job was a door installation. Doors can be tricky and Pedro did great work! We've had the door installed for about a month now and it's still functioning beautifully. The second job was painting, moving an electrical outlet and mounting a TV. All done in one day. So fine was his work that we are asking him to come back a third time to paint our entire downstairs. Pedro is a good communicator, makes smart suggestions and is a skilled carpenter. I feel like we struck gold when we found Pedro. I highly recommend!

My (rather large) project was closer to custom furniture making than to general carpentry, so I spent half a year looking for a woodworker on Thumbtack, Yelp, and where not. Bay Area contractor market being what it is, I found nobody willing even to look at my project. Eventually I expanded my search to carpenters and now I’m really glad that I did. Oswaldo replied promptly, came to our house to discuss the project, offered sensible suggestions and a modest price and made everything in a week, which was faster than I expected and probably at a fraction of price I would pay to a woodworker. Granted, he does not have CNC routers and other fancy tools or even a workshop (he was working in our garage), but Oswaldo has shown me that in hands of a master there is nothing a miter saw cannot do. Oh, and in the evenings our garage was always carefully vacuumed, so nobody would tell that it saw some heavy sawing during the day. I am very pleased with Oswaldo’s work and highly recommend his services.

Matt is an excellent and talented carpenter. I had a wine cellar that needed to be assembled. He responded to my project quickly providing enough detail to make a decision to hire him. Throughout the experience he was very pleasant to communicate with. He was on time and kept me updated from start to finish. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat.

The doors and windows in my house were very old. And I wanted to upgrade to my windows to double pane. I called a few carpenters/handymen and most of them either weren't interested in the job of never showed up. Until I called Dominick. He arrived on time, listened to exactly what I wanted and delivered everything he promised. It's not easy finding a good handy man these days but I will definitely recommend Dominick to my friends and family in the future.

There are some times in life when you unexpectedly meet someone truly special, and that happened to my wife and I when we chose John to work on our home. We posted to Thumbtack just looking for a carpenter one day, met John, and ended up with a skilled builder who will be a friend for a long time. He did a kitchen addition for us, handling all the aspects from carpentry through plumbing and electrical and more. One of the most skilled builders I've ever worked with (always focused on "doing it right"), more versatile than most (over the course of our project he did engineering and on-the-fly design as well as handling all hands-on tasks), and a genuinely great guy to be around. The whole family was ready to adopt him. My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend John.

I contacted several demo contractors about removing our brick fireplace. On first impressions, Matt was the one that stood out to me. I got several bids all in the same price range. I picked Creavation as they sounded the best to me. We set two days for 8:00am and a price. On the first day, his two workers showed up a little after 8. Matt didn't make it till after 9:00 but, I know how the traffic can be from Livermore to Hayward. They spent the lag time preparing the area and setting up the stuff they brought. When Matt showed up, they all went straight to work. He thought they would be 100% done and picked up by 4:00. Not even close. We had arranged that this might be a 2 day job and it was. We agreed Matt would come back the next day at 9:00am and finish the job. He showed up at 9:00 and spent 5 more hours to finish and clean the area. He wrote me out a proper invoice and I paid him. He did an excellent job overall and I will definitely be calling on him again as I have several other projects to be done here. He and his workers are very friendly, personable and professional. Really nice to have it done finally!

Brendan was the best finish Carpenter that I have seen. He completed my base board trim in one day. Then went on to rebuild my deck. All his work was great. He was on time and worked hard the full day. I would highly recommend him for any job.

He is very creative and built a garden glass house that we both designed. He did not have to use one nail. He is a master carpenter. It is better to pay a flat fee than by the hour.
