Matthew is an excellent communicator. He really wants to make sure the client is heard. He was very clear about what was within the scope of his expertise and when to rely on other specialists. I needed a very important retaining wall to be built away from the house to deal with a dry rot problem. Matthew was able to guide the scope of the work so that it did not become too big of a project. Matthew actually invited my input and ideas. Even though he is in high demand and quite busy, he always make sure that our discussion sessions were clear and had enough time to address the details. Great work!
I highly recommend Unlimited Building & Plumbing Services. I had a clogged drain and was uncertain where the clogged was. Darvell, the owner, gave me the best quote and quickly arranged plumber to work onsite (next day). When the clogging happened again in main line, Darvell against was able to send plumber to us in the next day and fully solved the issue. Darvell even called to check with us a week later to confirm everything is well.
In my profession (Hotel General Manager), I have worked with many contractors in building hotels which were shady, dogmatic, lazy and came and went as they pleased. And now looking back at those experiences, I wish today I would have had John as the main contractor. His work ethics, time management, communication, tenacity at the job, fair price point, genuine care for me as a customer were not only visible during the job but resonate in my mind and hear still today. Everyday I walk into my warehouse and I look at the job he completed (stair case) it brings a smile to my face and a pep in my step. The wood work he completed breaths and sings excellence and heart! Thank you John for restoring my faith in contractors.... there are still men out their that care for the craftsmanship that they do. You have a true talent and art that many others need to try. And your personality and warm heart are icing on the cake. As I stated to you.... my next building (construction job) has your name all over it! Well done....! Bethinketh Co. places our seal of approval on your amazing work!
OpenBay Design designed a large addition with 1 new story in my multi-family rental building. I was very satisfied with the process and was pleasantly surprised at how smoothly it all went. The team was knowledgeable in code and permit requirements, thoughtful in the design, personable and easy to work with. I have recommended this firm to others looking to renovate or build new residential (houses or multi-units) and commercial spaces and buildings. - Satisfied building owner, Oakland
We hired ER Construction to replace the siding on our garage and install new windows, side door, and garage door. Enrique's crew did a fantastic job! It looks like a brand new building. The workers arrived promptly each morning and worked hard all day. The price was quite reasonable. We are very pleased with the finished project and would definitely recommend ER Construction.
If you need any kind of construction or remodel then Hauser Construction is for you. They take care of my rentals and have done an amazing job at a reasonable price. Whether it's routine maintenance, or a total overhaul you simply couldn't do better in terms of professionalism, attention to detail and overall cost. They will work with you to fit your needs into your budget and get it done on time. To me time is money in the rental market and Hauser construction has always delivered on time. I continue to use them for the continuing maintenance needs of my rentals in Monterey. I am extremely satisfied and simply would not use anyone else.
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.
Rick was our general contractor for our project that included fixing up/modernizing the exterior front of our house. He has an excellent working knowledge of all the trades required to complete this work. We received multiple bids and his price is very reasonable/competitive for the scope of work we had completed. Rick stripped our house of its old wood siding, porch tiles and old existing structures. He then replaced it with stucco, beautiful stonework siding, new porch stone and fresh paint. He also put in a new driveway and walkways for us. The house has a whole new look, and we couldn't be happier. Rick has excellent connections to many subcontractors in the area. They all did wonderful work, were very professional, friendly and polite and efficient. Rick's connections to these subs was invaluable for us, as there is no way I could have found them all on my own. Rick treated our project as if it were his own house. As little things came up during the project, he was able to fix or amend them as needed. He was also very available by phone. He answered just about every time I called, and if he didn't he returned my call right away. I never had to wait to get in contact with Rick. Rick also gave very good honest opinions about our project when I asked. One example is when I chose some very expensive porch stone that didn't look right with the rest of our materials. Rick not only expressed his concern with this, but showed up with about ten more stone choices so that I could pick out a better one, which I did. The porch now looks wonderful, and the stone that we like much better than the original choice was less expensive! I think you will be very happy with your home improvement project if you hire Rick as your contractor no matter how big or small your project is. Rick will be happy to do it!
We hired Lifetime Remodeling in the summer of 2017 to do a first floor addition to our home in Millbrae. The project involved adding 400 square feet to our house, which included expanding the living room and adding a new bedroom and a new bathroom. It was wonderful working with Sam and his team at every step of the way. Their bid was very competitive compared to the many others I got, and the estimated time for completion (about four months) was much shorter than most of the other quotes. Lifetime's responsive customer service and attention to detail made our lives so much easier. Here are just a few examples of things they did to minimize our stress. When strong winds blew the construction fence over during off hours, they came out here quickly to get it back up and weigh it down with sandbags. When it came time to block off the parts of the house being demolished, they helped us move furniture and cover it carefully so that it would not get damaged or dirty during construction. When they needed to move the wiring for our internet access, they made sure to reconnect it promptly. The temporary wall they built was very sturdy and effective at blocking out dust, so we had no problem continuing to live in the house throughout the construction. Sam also closely inspected all the work and often caught adjustments to be made that I did not notice. For example, even though the interior painting looked fine to me, Sam decided that he wanted another coat. When we did point out other things that needed adjusting, such as leveling out certain fixtures, the team promptly fixed them. When I asked for a different design for our recessed lighting at the last minute, even after some of them had already been installed, Sam accommodated the request. Sam checked in with me often, so I always felt well informed about the next steps coming up and what I needed to plan for. This was awesome because I learned that it can be agonizing to pick out tiles, hardwood, hardware, etc. for a project like this, especially for someone like me doing it for the first time. It was also helpful to have Sam's recommendations for suppliers for the finishes and fixtures. We were really impressed that Lifetime finished the project pretty much right on schedule and with absolutely no cost overruns. To make this happen, most days, Lifetime had a team of two to four workers here by 8 a.m., and they worked steadily for the entire day. They also often worked on weekends. After Lifetime finished the addition to the house, we ended up also hiring them to do landscaping for our front yard and replacing our concrete driveway with paver stones. They also did a great job on this, and we are so happy with and amazed by how our house looks now. Remodeling inevitably involves many hard decisions and a lot of time, energy, and money invested by the homeowner! The last thing you need is a contractor who adds unnecessary stress, yet it seemed like everyone I talked to had horror stories about their contractors. We are so grateful that Sam and Lifetime made it a wonderful experience for us.
We had Ryan over yesterday to repair 3 interior doors in a very old and actually historic San Franciscan Victorian house. In addition to the three interior doors, Ryan painted the front door which had also just been replaced. His attention to detail was great, there were constant adjustments to make sure everything fit, latched, matched, didn't drag, looked great, etc. His response was prompt, he replied almost immediately and was available to start the very next day. He came prepared for the job, from start to finish. Ryan is very up front and fair in terms of compensation. You will have zero issue with the transparency and fairness of his bids. It should also be noted that this is a very old building. The areas where the door hinges connected to the wall/door frame were extremely dilapidated, the wood was old and and over drilled. It was like putty. But Ryan rocked it. Not only did Ryan pay close attention to the style of the Victorian building and matched the details perfectly, his finished product was seamless. You can't even tell that work had been done. There wasn't even dust on the floor. It was legit, honest good work. 100% recommend.
Al is fantastic! He came and gave an estimate for a pendant light that other electricians said I would have to replace. He gave an estimate - came the next day to fix - charged for time only. Plus - as a "by the way, can you look at this" - he fixed the garbage disposal (instead of us having to spend $250 on a new one.) He simply replaced the wiring. I will be using Al for anything electrical or handy in the future. Al is prompt, courteous and very reasonable. This was an excellent experience on thumbtack and finding Al was way above my expectations. A+++
Bob and Christine have been doing an excellent job to architect the whole basement remodeling of my San Francisco property. They provided professional input and suggestions in the designs and updated all drawing requirement in order to get the City's building permit. Great Thanks!
My initial request was to have a cabinet removed so my new fridge could fit in the space, but never thought of salvaging the existing cabinet and reusing it, and that was what Paul did. He did an amazing job and now I have extra storage space above the fridge. He exceeded my expectations. The only con was that there was saw-dust everywhere and it took a long time to clean it up myself. He did provide a covering for the floor but it wasn't enough; still the job exceeded my expectations and am happy with the final outcome.
Yuri was outstanding -- he was reasonably priced, he did really good work, he always fully cleaned up after himself, and he left us entirely satisfied on two separate projects. First, he's excellent at accomplishing small jobs for a reasonable hourly rate. He leveled a door that had been sticking, re-grouted part of our kitchen back-splash, fixed door hinges that had been squeaking, and more. Second, he did a great job framing and installing a door and surrounding sheet rock to create a new room in our house. We needed the door to match a door across the hall from it identically, and as you can see from the pictures, Yuri did so nearly flawlessly. Indeed, I wouldn't be able to tell which was the original and which one Yuri added if I didn't already know. He was also extremely patient with our project when it was delayed a few weeks because Home Depot delivered the wrong kind of door, he made minor changes when we requested them, and he handled drawings and permitting with the city. He did all of this for an extremely fair price. We'll be recommending him to any friends with similar work to be done in their homes.
Matt Smith has been absolutely wonderful in every way. He has helped with major re-construction and renovation of part of house. Then has helped with numerous smaller home needs since then. He has always been available within a few days. Very reliable and shows up on time. Most important is that he is very conscientious and careful and attentive resulting in a good job done every time. I feel lucky I have found Matt to help with the things I cannot do myself. And he is an extremely nice guy, making the whole process a easy and a pleasure.
