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!

Jasper built some gorgeous custom closets for us. This included 6 custom doors and a new cabinet. All not only looked great but matched the style of our house. Jasper was also easy to communicate with, trustworthy and considerate. We’d give him 6 stars if we could. He also fixed our neighbor’s stairs during the project and our neighbor is also very happy with the outcome.

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.

Scorpion Services provided me and my family with an amazing Trex deck. The upper deck covers a large portion of our lower deck which has made this winter season enjoyable outside. I definitely recommend Scorpion Services to anyone who is remodeling/building a deck or add on to their home.

I hired Rick and Ron at R&R General Services to build a cat patio at my house. This required building a custom frame and installing the fence wire, and having a custom door built and installing a cat door into it. They did a very professional job, got it done in the minimum time. They were flexible and cooperative as we worked out the details of the design together, and then implemented it flawlessly. Rick also worked with me to accelerate the work on the custom door which was being done by a subcontractor - it took a little finesse to get our small job put at the front of the line in front of some larger jobs, thus saving several days on our project. Both Rick and Ron are good-natured and friendly, as is their assistant Aaron, who helped with finishing the new door and installing the hardware. In summary, I am very happy with the work that R&R General Services did for me, and I would be pleased to hire them again for other projects at my house.

my wife and I were looking to build a new house, after contacting more than a few providing the same service we were convinced that no other company will be able to fulfill our design and detail demands same as M&M construction. Eli and his team knows how to handle a project of that magnitude with ease and we are very comfortable with their ideas and solutions. it was a big decision for us as it is by far the most extensive work we have ever done. thank you M&M construction, keep doing the good work

Yursta Construction is a great company. Very competitive pricing and superb quality work. They've built custom book shelves in my summer cabin, beautiful fireplace mantel and custom window sills and shutters. Company has capability and expertise of indoor and outdoor work, from skeleton construction to ideal finish. They also built a work of art Russian Steam Room and Sauna for me. Don't think anybody could possibly excel Yursta in skills, quality, timing and pricing. I would definitely recommend this company to anybody.

Shaz was hired by my next door neighbor to completely renovate the exterior of their house. The whole work crew were always courteous and Shaz went out of his way to ensure I was happy with the work and any impact on my property. As time went by I could see how much care and attention Shaz puts into his projects so I didn't hesitate to hire him to replace some damaged siding on my property. All of the work was been carried out to the very highest standard and I would definitely use Shaz Construction again.* Thanks for everything Shaz, I'll miss you guys! And thanks for all the plant advice ;-) I'll let you know when we are in a position to tackle our rotten siding issue. Best wishes, Ian & Jo.

We wanted a pergola built for our backyard as well as an outdoor shower enclosure. After several interviews with contractors I was getting discouraged at the lack of professionalism. After meeting with Noah, I knew he was the right person for the job. He was willing to work with my design ideas and contributed some additional ideas that complimented our existing plan. He was professional, personable, on-time and most-importantly built us a beautiful structure that we could not be more pleased with!! We asked him back a few months later to build us a side gate for our house. While he was in the middle of constructing that, a massive 80-foot tree fell in our backyard, breaking one of our water faucets and water was flowing freely. Noah called me at work, and was gracious enough to turn off our water, cap the broken water line and save us from an even bigger disaster. He went above and beyond. We will hire him in a second for any future construction jobs we may have!

Vahid drew a plan that I later took to the San Francisco city department of building inspection and from the first try, changes to the apartment that we were planning to remodel had been approved. That tells me that Vahid is an architect who knows exactly what he is doing. He has printed 4 copies of the plan even though San Francisco department of building inspection requires only 2 copies. All 4 copies have been included into a price. I am definitely his client if I ever will need architectural plans drawn again in the future.

My husband found Bert on Thumbtack. Initially I was hesitant to work with a contractor without a personal referral, however, I am so grateful that we found Bert. As someone who has survived extensive remodeling in our home, I can say without hesitation that he is absolutely phenomenal to work with. Bert is a great listener and I always felt that he heard my ideas and gave them equal weight as my husband's, which has not always been the case for me. Though we had a pretty clear vision of what we wanted, at several key points during the process he was able to contribute a key element for which we had been searching, but hadn't found, because he really understood what we were going for, which was invaluable. His crew was efficient, respectful and knowledgeable. Bert is very transparent about costs and works within your budget. Additionally, he does not "disappear" toward the end of a project when the last small details need attention, which I have experienced with all other contractors. Bert is very thorough, and goes above and beyond. He is an extremely likable guy and we will definitely be working with him again.

ISO Ideas designed our new home architecture and interior design in the Bay Area. We loved the modern style and customized details. They were very creative, fun to work with and also helped us to meet our budget. Most importantly they were very responsive and responsible to the last detail during construction. We were very grateful for their services.

If you’re looking to do any rehab work on your home, Ben Tarcher & Associates should be the FIRST architects you should consider! I purchased my first home, a three unit Victorian house (built in 1908), at the end of 2012. The house was a real-fixer up! Notwithstanding its charm and obvious potential, the property was riddled with defects, including the need to (1) build a foundation (as none existed), and (2) completely gut the two downstairs units. Ben completely redesigned the two downstairs units. He provided me with a number of distinct architectural scenarios for using the space. Ben proved to be a fantastic resource. I found him to be extremely professional, creative, and a clear communicator, all qualities I appreciated as a new home owner.

Out of everyone I talked to Allstars were the only ones who took the time to really listen. Because I have a customer home I needed someone with experience to think outside the box. They looked at every option until we were satisfied. I would highly recommend Allstars to anyone needing quality,reliable services.

We hired Zephyr Arch to get the architectural plans and city permits done for our home (room addition project) They were very prompt in answering all of our questions and took into account our suggestions while coming up with the design. They also took care of the structural engineering requirement for our room addition project and got us the permits from city of Sunnyvale promptly. They helped us getting our HOA approval by answering some followup questions and suggested alternate options.Overall we are one happy client ! :) Thanks for the great job guys!

We had been looking for someone to remodel our home for some time, but no one came up with anything as creative, functional or as beautiful as he did. We're so happy we chose his company to do the job. He helped us immensely to choose just the right shade of wood flooring, tile, and cabinet design to compliment our our home, even down to the paint on the walls. We would never have come up with the ideas or color selections he suggested on our own, but now that it's finished, it looks beautiful. We're so happy we chose Glenn Garry Construction for our remodeling. Warren also gave us some great ideas for our backyard patio area that we plan on remodeling sometime next year. We love the way our home looks now and we thank you for all your great suggestions, which truly helped us make the right decisions.

Yesterday Jalandhar and his team finished the new 2nd floor addition on my single family home in Burlingame before the guys started there was only an old attic , they completely removed the entire roof , built new walls and a new roof to create a 2nd floor, they then proceeded with a bathroom, 2 bedrooms and 2 walk in closets. Me and my wife are very happy and satisfied with the outcome of the project, from the hardwood flooring and custom builtins to the tiling and painting the expertise that was shown was much appreciated.
