Jose is great! On-time, friendly, and considerate. I love it when contractors dont mind teaching aspects about the project, describing what they're doing and informing. And are not bothered when people are curious. Never felt like I was on the clock with him. A great plumber / handyman that I would gladly re-hire again! Thanks Jose!

Ralph built a deck and fence for me about a month ago and the work was absolutely great. His prices were very reaonsonable and he did the job in a very short time. By far, one of the easiest and nicest contractors to work with. I would recommend him to anyone as he finished the job on-time and the deck and fence looked great!

I own a bar in downtown Oakland and we have been working with Chao for about a year. He has helped us with electrical work, building projects, and general maintenance around the bar. We are always pleased with his know-how, punctuality and thoroughness.

First time I have been thoroughly happy with a contractor service! Albino was great to work with from the start. We needed to sand and refinish a 300sq foot deck. He came quickly to give a quote (which was reasonable), then got the job started immediately and done within planned time frame (we were on a tight timeline). Rigoberto did most of the work and was very professional and kind. The quality of the work was great, even better than expected and cost was exactly as pre determined with no surprises. Would definitely recommend him to others and hire him again if needed.

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.

I didn't actually hire Max because our project changed and I didn't need him anymore so I can't talk about work quality. However, I wanted to comment on his quoting process. I had several contractors come out to make their bids and I felt that Max did an excellent job of not only listening but actually hearing what I was asking for and providing his professional suggestions (without trying to bid up the project). He provided his estimate which was exactly what we had talked about and his pricing was lower than the competition. I would contact Max again to bid for projects in the future.

Work performed was for installation of bathroom exhaust vent and OTR microwave with exhaust vent. Written estimate was provided days prior and all necessary installation materials were purchased by him as agreed. Mess was kept at minimum by covering immediate work areas but I still had a lot of cleaning afterwards due to the spread of sawdust (windows were left open). Contractor and his helper completed the job in the time promised. Unfortunately, the microwave vent did not function as needed (not venting air to outside as expected). Contractor was notified and he returned in the same week to rework the vent. He was apologetic and showed good effort in diagnosing and fixing the problem though a little guesswork had to be done by both of us since we didn't have the installation manual. The outcome for both vents was acceptable though my perfectionism says otherwise. LOL. Overall, he was polite and showed professionalism throughout the entire process. He was patient and timely in responding to all our concerns. He was able to acquiesce to our preference in materials/appliances and allowed us options regarding the installation. We felt like he valued our input and we had control over the process especially since this was our first time dealing with a general contractor.

Dennis , the owner of NBPE did an excellent job finding the problem and solving it. He was right on time and had great tools to clean out our 4 inch plumbing line. He discovered one pipe was set the wrong way during an earlier repair by another plumber and was able to replace that section of pipe. Everything worked perfectly after that and the price was very reasonable. He even gave a 150 discount for the exploration. I would definite recommend this contractor.

It went very. Ricky and his crew were very nice and trustworthy. Gave him a key to my house since I was unable to be home during the times they would be working my bathroom. He was fair with his pricing and so nice. I have had 2 contractors work on place before and they had such bad attitudes. I will definitely use Ricky again and recommend to friends. Also loved how respectful they were of my Home and keeping it clean as much as possible while working.

I hired them to lay the engineered bamboo floor in my condo. They did exactly what promised and in the time they originally specified. I have been doing remidelling and construction of my rentals and my resident for the last 10 years and very much familiar with the business. Out if many contractors or handymen i met Jason and Regina are the outstanding team. They work fast, they are very proactive and attentive to details. And their price was reasonable. What is the most important for me is that they do listen to my suggestions - not like many macho style contractors:). The floor work looks absolutely great and i am very happy. So that i would like to hire them for other work on my rental property.

Giving a thumbs up to Fatos for his work remodeling and extending an outside deck. He works by the hour with direct reimbursement for materials. His workmanship is top notch and I am very satisfied with the end product His initial estimate of about two weeks for this project was about right. I had the initial estimated quantity of materials delivered and paid for, then he got the rest ad-hoc as needed for which I reimbursed him. I've done plenty of construction myself, both contracting and with a hammer. But I wanted this done quickly and didn't have the time myself (mom's house in Napa) as I don't live nearby. Was a little nervous about the hourly arrangement as this can remove incentive to get work done timely and pad the bill, especially as I couldn't be there constantly to oversee. Happy to say Fatos worked hard and honestly and I feel I got good value for the money. To be clear he is a handyman, not a licensed contractor. This means liability is on the customer and any potential dispute resolution can be murkey. With that said, I recommend him for your small to medium sized projects.

We hired MJH Construction Management to complete renovations of our recently purchased home. With a wealth of knowledge and experience, MJH determined the best solutions to a number of complex repairs and additions including floor leveling, heating, plumbing and electric. MJH helped us choose several improvements like changing the floor plan for better use of space, installing a gas fireplace as well as a bathroom and kitchen upgrade. MJH oversaw the contractors to ensure the work was completed and billed correctly. Throughout the process MJH kept us apprised of the costs and schedule - there were no surprises. We are delighted with the results - our renovated house came out fantastic.

Jeff Howe was incredible! He works very hard and is thorough and very smart. I only hired him to review 3 bids I had gotten and help me choose. He read them, choose the best one and explained why it was the best. (He chose the middle bid-- much, much less than the expensive bid-- and he explained why the expensive bid was unnecessary and even shady.) He then wrote up a report on the best bid with improvements for me to ask for and he spoke with the contractors and helped me to get them. If I buy a building in need of a complete remodel or a big design change, I'd hire him in an instant! He was also professional, timely and easy to work with.

Cesar is one of the best General Contractors I have ever dealt with. Once my project started, he was constantly proving me updates regarding status, finished project on time and did not make me run after him. He was very reasonable in terms of price/cost and quality of work done by him and his team was amazing. I strongly recommend him to anyone looking to get a general contractor

I had three criteria when searching for a contractor: Quality, Honesty, and Communication. Sam passes all three tests with flying colors. I've already recommended Sam to friends and family, and wouldn't hestitate to do it again. After my father passed, we needed someone to renovate my parents' former rental. The last tenant did a number on the place and it was already showing its age. Sam was aware of the significance of this project to my family and was very conscientious about keeping within the budget. He rebuilt the inside of the entire house including all new plumbing, electrical, and insulation. Mom was so happy with Sam's work that she had him remodel her own kitchen and bathroom. It's very difficult to find a contractor with a balance of craftmanship, honesty, and effective communication. Don't hesitate to give Sam a call!

We met with several contractors and we chose Shaz because he was very knowledgeable and had great solutions to our concern for our home. Shaz told us straight that his estimate may not be the lowest or the highest, but it was apparent that he is very knowledgeable and particular about quality of his work. Shaz went above and beyond to make sure everything is done correctly and to our satisfaction. We are very satisfied with Shaz impeccable work, and excellent quality. We appreciate his professionalism, discipline, and awesome communication. Every impression we have about Shaz Construction is a Good One! We highly recommend this company.

Aldo is absolutely wonderful to work with! We purchased our home in 2014 and he has led three different renovation projects for us since then. And, when we save up for our next round of renovations, we will certainly go to him again! What we appreciate most about Aldo is his honesty and warm nature. He never led us astray, never tried to overcharge us, and never tried to get us to do more work than we needed do. He was open and upfront throughout the entire process for each project. He was also warm, friendly, and so easy to work with. Before we started our first round of renovations, many people warned us about contractors who would extend timelines. But Aldo is amazing when it comes to timelines! He sticks to them! We also love how responsive Aldo is. Whenever we texted him with questions or updates regarding our project, he immediately responded. And this is all on top of doing beautiful work!! We highly recommend Aldo!!
