Preston replace the cover for my split king adjustable sleep number bed, installed an air conditioner in my bedroom on the second floor and put up a porch cover. Done quickly and professionally and at a reasonable cost. I will use his services again for future repairs.

I have nothing but high praise for Sean and the work he did for me. The project was a swing set with a wooden fort and slide that was a early Christmas gift for our 3 1/2 year old Granddaughter. I live in Riverside, Ca. but the location was in San Diego. We agreed upon a price for the assembly and a strict time frame to complete the project. Sean knew we wanted to surprise our Granddaughter that same day upon her arrival home from pre-school. Sean kept his promise, completing the work ahead of schedule. I would recommend Sean for your home project without any reservations. Oh yea, our Granddaughter was so surprised when she came home. She already named it her castle. Thanks Sean!!

Rob was prompt and on point with all the jobs we had on the property. He was extremely efficient and knowledgeable on various aspects of things that I hadn't given any thought about, from design inputs, to suggested materials, to gardening and many other things. Rob was honest, friendly, funny and great to have in our home. He will be on our speed dial list :-)

John did such an excellent job on our projects. He replaced an existing porch that was nearly falling down with a beautiful, sturdy deck that we love. He was able to finish the deck in less than a week and kept the work area in a neat and orderly fashion. We’ll get so much use out of our new deck. We also needed our front door relocated. The area we were moving the door to was not square and John was able to custom fit a slab door into the existing doorway. The fit is amazing. It works better than the original front door. We would highly recommend John for any project. He was thorough, fast, neat, fairly priced and did a great job. THANKS JOHN!

Sean is amazing! He's upfront and honest, friendly and motivated. I am a pretty particular person in expectations and Sean meets and exceeds them every time. He is thorough and thoughtful in his work and fair in his pricing. I feel lucky to have found Sean to help me get my new little house just the way I want it- I only hesitate to write this review for fear he becomes even busier! So far Sean has completed tasks requiring expertise in tile (bathroom and front porch), plumbing (toilet and bathroom sink), he's matched a specific baseboard and installed it, he fixed my rusted outlet, and we are in progress of planning a kitchen refacing to include the installation of a range hood fan, dishwasher, new countertops and backsplash, and updating our cabinets. He's easy to talk to and understand- he's quick and reliable. You can tell he takes pride in his work. I don't know how you find better.

Over the years I have renovated an 1897 home, converted a single home into 2 apartments and a gift shop and completely redone a kitchen all in Minnesota. Too bad I couldn't have had Coggins Construction do all of those jobs. Unlike past experiences, Patrick Coggins told me every day when he would show up the next and what he would do---he showed up when he said he would and did exactly as promised. He is knowledgeable, creative and his prices are very fair. His workers were efficient, everyone was neat, respectful and even nice to my obnoxious dog. I really can't say enough good things about the whole experience. I will continue to work with Coggins in the future. Thank you Patrick for the wonderful work on my patio, the new woodwork in my house and all the extra nice touches.

I found that he was professional, punctual, hard, diligent worker and he knows his profession. He is extremely knowledgeable and works fast and precise - PLUS he doesn't "take you to the cleaners" price wise . He rebuilt our front staircase and porch ~ we're very pleased!

Ben completed a 3' high, 50' long custom fence with a gate for our front yard. I showed him pictures on the Internet of a style that I liked and he was able to replicate it. It turned out AMAZING! Neighbors have been complimenting us on it since it's been built. From beginning to end, he kept me involved in the process by asking detailed questions, giving me options to choose from so that I could decide how much I wanted to spend, and explaining the job as he went along. I particularly liked the latter because I like to learn new things and am new to the whole home owning/improvement thing. ;) I can tell that Ben takes real pride in his work; he wants to make sure that the customer is happy and that he produces a lasting product (for example, he uses screws instead of nails on his fencing, so that they don't start falling apart as they age...we've all seen this happen to those generic cedar fences, right?). Lastly, Ben was punctual, professional, and extremely easy to work with. I would absolutely recommend him to others.

Scheduled appointment primarily for spiders. Manny was very timely, responsive and reasonably priced. He said the spiders were outside spiders from all the trees and bushes. He sprayed the area where i saw the spiders the most and the porch and patio. Haven't seen any activity since the appointment so it seems to have worked. He also sprayed the bathrooms and kitchen for the silverfish that sometimes pop out. Would recommend his service.

I was referred to Rick by a family member for some simple painting I needed in my dining room. I felt at ease from the moment I met him and his knowledge in all aspects of his work impressed me. This led to Rick doing a total remodel of my kitchen. While working on my kitchen he discovered and addressed several other problems , like leaking pipes under the sink, mold inside of the cabinets and electrical outlets that needed to be updated, that were not part of the remodel, but saved me much time and money in the long run. After my kitchen was completed he rebuilt my patio cover in it's entirety and up to code! He is very professional and not only claims that he will do his best, but expects it of himself. He is easy to communicate with and follows through with his work as promised. He is very reliable and went above and beyond what I expected. No matter what work I need done ,I call Rick !!

First of all, this was my first project via Thumbtack and based on my experience with Tai, I would come back to this website. Tai worked on replacing my old casing and installing a new, more decorative one around all my doors. I work during the week and was not able to take the days off when he would be doing the work at my home. He went out of his way to accommodate my schedule and worked on Sat, Sun so he could get it done on time for the company that was going to do the door measurements. He communicated directly with the company that is installing my doors and figured out the parts they were not going to do. He came over and measured the space around each door and helped me pick the right width of the casing. We had to pick a different one for one of my doors. He explained the work in detail (where the baseboard needed to be removed, and checked if I had extra material in case the old one was damaged). He bought the casing, painted it at his home, and then brought it on the day of installation. The finished work is of high quality and the installed casing looks great. He was very courteous throughout the work, and kept me informed. I would be very happy to work with him again, and based on my interactions with him, next time I would be comfortable with him working at home while I was not there.

Ed was courteous, knowledgeable and on time. He completed the job in the time frame we needed and offered options and advice concerning the kind of paint and amount required. He improved on our wall patching and was respectful of our home and pets. We will definitely call him for additional home improvement. Best of all the room looks great!

George painted the trim on my 2-story house, all the exterior doors; including the garage trim and washed the vinyl siding on the upper story. Everything was patched an primed - which does not go without saying these days. The workmanship was outstanding in every way; no drips or runs and every part of the contrast, which was against the white, was meticulously detailed. I could not have been more pleased. The lower portion of my house is brick and during an install of a new front door the painters had splattered the brick around the porch with white paint. I was at a loss on what to use to remove the paint as the brick is quite old and fragile; scraping didn't seem like a good idea. George matched the brick color with matte paint and hand covered all the speckles. AMAZING! The front porch makes a lovely presentation with his work and creative problem solving. He was very respectful of the property and left everything cleaner than he found it! The pride he takes in his work shows! I will never use anyone else for projects around my home!

This past year I was faced with the challenge of caring for and up-keeping a large property and home. As a single working woman, I found myself needing assistance with a variety of home related fixes and projects. Whether it was essential electrical work, or diagnosing and repairing a large ceiling leak (which three other repairmen previously attempted to and failed at fixing), Brett was always there when I needed him. Brett patched and painted my outdoor porch, spent countless hours grooming the outdoor landscape, and even climbed to the roof to clean the gutters. Brett is the jack of all trades and I can't imagine not having him to call on.

After a phone chat, I sent Mr. Duin an e-mail outlining the projects I had in mind. I asked him to help me select those that fit into my quarterly budgets. Together we selected three that needed attention this winter. 1. stabilize a wobbly 6 foot block (gate) wall that was inches from a gas main, 2. Build a short block wall that would hold back dirt from a muddy embankment, 3. Reinforce a swaying wood fence and wrap metal posts with cedar – box style. Mr. Duin and staff did an outstanding job of listening to my needs. I was impressed with their work, quality of materials, work ethics and attention to detail. They were very pleasant to work with and I look forward to our next round of projects. I hope to include the trim/molding (with up lighting) along the ceiling of my front porch which will have to wait until early Spring – due to budget considerations.

Ron has been doing work around my house since mid 2007. If there's something he can't do, I have yet to discover it. He's on time (or calls if delayed) & is very time-efficient & versatile. I live in a mobile home which is challenging. Ron has done electrical, plumbing, replaced windows & doors, installed blinds, installed ceiling fans, relaid my floor, added an enclosed porch off my back deck. He reconfigured an entry closet to an open, built-in bookcase. He completely gutted my kitchen & gave me great ideas that made it turn out stunning. I can't recommend him high enough. He's fast, yet thorough. You can see the pride in his work & I trust him implicitly.

Not knowing entirely the quality of work Shev provides or even seeing a review, I selected Shev because he was very responsive and accommodating. Now that my porch is near completion I can honestly say Shev is a journeyman at his field. Quality and attention to detail is Shev’s best attribute along with dedication to his clients. Even though the contract was comprehensive, I recommend a little more detail in the job description so all parties are on the same page. I am so impressed with Shev’s work that I am now hiring him for a second job. Shev's price is at a good rate. You might be able to find cheaper but for the quality of work performed you cannot bet it.

I am a real estate professional at the end of a sale of a home.. Pressed for time and lack of resources in this field I went out of my comfort zone and used..Thumbtack.. Kenny instantly got in touch with me discussed options and a week later the work was complete. Kenny quoted a range price and where I prepped my clients for the high end of the range, honest and reliable Kenny invoices us at the lower end of his original quote!! Great experience so far and I will use him again!!!

Fermin Leon and his crew have done a large part of the work on the major remodeling of our home which took place from summer 2013 to spring 2015. The quality of work has been excellent, everyone has been respectful and considerate, and the cost has been reasonable. I found it important to come to an agreement about costs and possible areas that might run over the estimate before the beginning of the project. There were times when the estimate did not cover the actual costs (labor, materials) - when that was explained to me I accepted it. I highly recommend Fermin and his crew. They have integrity and do great work.

David has fixed my swamp cooler & put insulation around the copper tubing from getting over heated in the sun since it sits on the roof of my mobile home. It works great now. David fixed a leak under my kitchen sink that had been leaking for quit some time & was not discovered until the shelf started to warp, it was a rush job because water was everywhere once we discovered it. He also put 4 electrical plugs in our wall which he had to crawl under the mobile home to do so. He will be putting doors on a glass porch soon. There isn't anything that he has done that was bad we appreciate having him nearby & he cleans up whatever mess is made while doing a job.
