David is outstanding. He not only assembled my bookcase fast and with skill, he helped out with my broken chair and paint too! He's warm and honest, I really like that. These are qualities hard to find nowadays. His rate is unbeatable! He quoted me for $35 but I gave him $45! I'm keeping in contact with him for projects I may need in the future. David Gnomes is an incredible handyman and is always right to the job. Compared to sleazy guys who demand $160 and milk you fort your cash by the hour yet do very little actual work. David is hardworking, honest and gets your jobs done!

Brian and Sonny were fast, efficient, and incredibly helpful in completing tasks needed to prepare for a whole house interior painting. They removed multiple light fixtures and towel racks, a wall hutch and panel, fireplace mantel, and helped moved some heavy items in prep for the painters. Really easy to communicate with Brian, I would absolutely work with him again.

Dinh painted my condo and was very reasonable and professional. He helped me pick the paints and buy all the materials at the store. He painted everything impeccably. He always was upfront with information on what is possible and what is not. He forgot to paint a couple of places and upon clarification, he immediately spent 45 extra minutes to complete these extra spaces. Overall i would hire him again. What's great about dinh is that he has integrity. Something that's hard to come by in his trade.

He replaced our gutters that had blown off in the storms. He said the rest were fine so didn't need replacing. In addition, I asked him to add drainage so the rainwater would move far from the house. The location is a very steep hill. From the back of the house he put in 4" pvc pipes, 20 feet long, down the hill. Since the pipes were white, he spray painted them green so they wouldn't stand out as much. We had him move the drains from the front of the house, underground and away from the house. He put in two pop up drains near the sidewalk. Very, very happy with the work. My mom was having problems with a sump pump located in a sub basement that kept stopping, probably because of the insulation breaking down and clogging up the mechanism. He was able to get it going again to clear out the water. Then he added chicken wire and a mesh fabric around it so it wouldn't get clogged so easily. Once the area is dry, he will return and remove all the broken down insulation so it will fix the problem for good. He's very kind and easy to talk to. His rates are very reasonable. We feel fortunate to have found him and plan to give him more work as the need arises.

I hired Mauricio to paint a single interior wall in an office building. He did a great job, and came by a day early to confirm the color choice. He was very professional and was easy to communicate with via text (we all know its the easiest way). I highly recommend Mauricio!

Remove wallpaper. The wall didn't need texture after removing wall paper and they painted. They put on 2 coates of paint. The job itself looked good. However some wall paper was left on the floor and for what they did I think the price could of been lower. Over all I am satisfied with the work they did.

Rudy and Perfect Match are excellent choices for your next paint job. Rudy had two of his employees at my house 8 days in a row to fix a nightmare paint job. The previous owners had the house painted as cheaply as possible prior to selling just two years ago. They did virtually no prep work or caulking at the time. Rudy and his team were the complete opposite. They spent 5 days scraping and sanding and caulking and wood-filling and getting the house ready for some quality paint. 5 days might sound like a lot, but trust me, the house needed it! The paint went on in just a couple days afterward. After the team had completed the paint job, we needed zero touch ups. However, we were doing a laundry remodel at the time and placed a new dryer vent in the wall that was already painted. They primed it and painted it right away so that we wouldn’t have to do it ourselves. Every day after working, the crew cleaned up the work areas and made sure that they weren’t in our way at all. They were always courteous, friendly and hardworking. I have zero regrets about choosing Rudy and Perfect Match, and plan on using them in the future for interior work as well.

We contracted Marvin to paint the entire interior of our house- living room, family room, kitchen, 3 bathrooms, 4 bedrooms and all the doors and trims. Our living room has high ceilings with a lot of corners. and his crew did an excellent job. He suggested colors and brought us some samples to choose from. He was very patient with us. I would give him 5 stars for his patience. A few times, we became undecided about the colors to paint and he gave us some time to think about it. I am very detailed oriented and have to make sure that every corner line is straight and there are no paint streaks or anything like that. Marvin and his crew paid attention to my every request and made sure they got everything perfect. I am completely satisfied with his work and would hire him again when we are ready to paint our celings and do some exterior job. I would absolutely recommend him.

Marlon did an amazing job painting the interior of our house. Before the job, he took the time to answer all my questions and provided some recommendations on paint colors. We had some extensive wall damage and bad patching from the previous owners, and Marlon and his team spent a lot of time prepping and fixing those areas. He even brought his father (who has 30+ years of experience) to help repair and retexture some of the walls. The new paint looks great, and totally transformed our house. Marlon made sure that every last spot was perfect, and he was always available via phone or text throughout the process. His price was fair and I would definitely recommend him.

One of the first things Gleo told me was that he had a regular job and would be able to work on weekends. He did two jobs for me at a rental. One was installing a medicine cabinet and interior lock. He did not complete repair of drywall repair by the cabinet. The other job was installation of a security door. He installed the medicine cabinet, lock and security door in a good manner. He did not complete an addition to the bottom of the security door. He was pleasant, on time, cleaned up well, and cooperative but for the incomplete items. I wanted him to paint a bath in S.F. at another rental but, he did not give me an estimate (perhaps too far away). Manelis Properties

Diego and Carla of Ulloas Painting were fantastic. Their level of professionalism, the expertise of their painting, the speed with which they worked, and their great prices make them stand out as professional painters. I had a deadline to paint the inside of my house and part of the exterior to put my house on the market. Diego and Carla started right away, finished ahead of the deadline, did multiple coats of paint where needed, were totally fine with me adding more rooms for them to paint, and the paint job is perfectly executed. They worked neatly, they were a pleasure to have in my home. I believe they undercharged for their high quality of work so I paid them extra. They're that good. I will always and only hire Carla and Diego in the future if possible. 5 stars all the way.

I recently chose Style Painting over about a dozen other companies to paint my 14 unit apartment building in Redwood City, and they did an amazing job. The price was very fair, and I was able to add some additional items along the way like sealing balconies, adding additional trim colors, laundry room interiors, etc. while still staying on budget. James and his team were very thorough and accommodating - as the building was being prepped, I found several new items that needed to be repaired and had contractors on site at the same time as the painters, and James worked around the other repairs and my schedule. He completed everything on or ahead of schedule, and was a pleasure to work with. I will definitely consider him for any future painting projects that I have.

Needed some quick help with cleaning after painters were done with multi room paint job that left dust, and grime, especially on the floors. The Unstain crew came in quickly with a reasonable quote and could do the job right away. The house has been in disarray during the painting, and the cleaning crew just made my life a lot easier.

We hired Omar and his team to paint the entire outside of a brand new two story stucco house with quite a bit of detail work on the trim, gutters, fascia etc.. It was tricky to get clean lines with the rough stucco texture, but they did a fabulous job!! They showed up on time, did excellent prep, primed and cleaned up very nicely. They were extremely professional, respectful and flexible - all elements that are very important to working with a team. We had to take a break in the project and asked them to return after 3 weeks to do the final touch up, which they accommodated. Overall, an A+ team and highly recommended!
