Eli fixed our very heavy sliding door that wasn't sliding or closing properly. Now it slides and closes better than before! Very impressed. Will use them again!
I hired Thanh to help me with making 2 doorways accessible for my dad who is new to using a wheelchair. Everything went really smoothly -- Thanh and I communicated via Thumbtack about the project needs, he gave me a fair price and he was super accommodating to my timeline. This was really important since I was trying to get a lot done during a short window while I was in town (1 week!). Most importantly was that he showed up when he said and did the job without a hitch; he was also a really nice guy and even helped me take away a screen door that I didn't have time and a truck to dispose. I couldn't spare any scheduling mishaps since I was flying into town to help my folks before dad was being released from the hospital. I'm really thankful that Thumbtack helped me find good folks like Thanh and for his work. I'll definitely call on him again and refer him to others.
Two years ago, in October 2013, I met Doug from Gillespie Doors. He came to my house, to install a new garage access door (the current one wouldnt withstand the weather elements) with a built-in doggy door. Having a construction background, I knew that it was very important to hire an experienced person when hanging doors. Doug instructed me to get the dog door that I wanted and he would put it in for me prior to him showing up. Doug was supposed to be at the house at 7 am, however, he arrived 15 minutes early (rarely in these days). He had the old jamb out and the new door fit in about 30 minutes. When it was completed, the door looked like it had been there for 40 years. Very professional install, thats what happens when you hire someone with a contractors license whose number is 742587 and has what I have come to learn is over 25 years, in California, installing doors. Last year, in December; I called on Doug again but with a very different problem. I hired a General Contractor (GC) to rehab my mother-in-law rental house. (The GC was to replace all interior, exterior and metal security doors. When I took my mother-in-law to look at the rehab progress we saw disturbing door hanging practices, such as exterior doors having been installed with spray foam and a few screws and the back, exterior door of which the contractor disturbingly bought and installed an out-swing door. When we followed up with the GC, the response was along the lines of we put in like for like. If you want it done different do it yourself. What happened to doing it correctly the first time?) With that said, I called Doug at Gillespie Doors and he moved around his schedule to get me in the next day. Upon arrival he noticed several items that were incorrect with the doors that my GC installed, and only a licensed door professional would be able to tell these issues: The entry door that the GC installed was placed over the old rotten oak sill, which Doug found was loose and the GC tried to fix it in place with expanding foam insulation. That did not work because, after Doug removed the poorly installed pre-hung unit, the oak sill literally fell out. While removing the pre-hung unit, Doug noticed that there were hardly any shims holding the frame in place, but instead the GC had screwed the door jamb in place (roughly), and then filled it in with foam insulation and without any shims so nothing was plumb or square. This then caused the entry door to rub on the floor when opened halfway, and would not allow for carpet or padding for that matter. On the rear door of the house, Doug found the GC installed that as poorly as the front door as it also had the expanding foam insulation and very few shims, but it was the WRONG door completely. The GC bought an out swinging door, and installed it backwards to swing in. If the GC would have left that in place, in Dougs estimation, it would have leaked like a sieve. Doug also noticed on this door that the installer had filled a gap in the rough opening with small pieces of 1 x 4 when a single piece was called for. Doug is a hard worker and knows his trade. Hanging doors is an art and from the examples above a GC shouldnt be screwing around hanging doors. Doug correctly installed my Entry Door along with the Rear Door. He also re-hung the security doors that my GC took off that never re-installed. Doug went so far above and beyond that he helped me fix an interior door that the GC never cut the bottom off to allow for carpet. I am totally satisfied with the workmanship from Doug. I will only be calling him to handle all of my door projects in the future.
Peter was meticulous and took great care to repair the threshold on our sliding glass door. We highly recommend Peter!
Larry was very professional and I like the quality of his work, the value was an extra bonus. He installed outside lighting fixtures on my 3 exterior door, front door kick plate and other miscellaneous things around the house. The only reason I'm giving him 4 stars instead of 5 is due to him being late due to traffic. He will be back to remove and install a new security door. I will definitely call him again!
Hector showed up right on time. He is very professional and inspires instant trust which I was able to confirm based on his behavior and work ethic. He did a great job installing a bathroom vent, fixing an electric outlet and door latch. He is very honest and he's pricea are reasonable. I have asked him to return and do some plumbing work in addition to other hone projects. I plan on using him for all my future hone repair and projects. I highly recommend him.
I purchased some office furniture from Ikea. Jerome came out to assemble the furniture. While at my office he also did some minor repairs and rehung a couple doors that were not working correctly. When the time comes I will definitely call him again!
Chris did a great job installing my garage door. He even followed up a couple days later to make sure it was working well.
Derrick responded promptly to the details we supplied about replacing a sliding door with double doors with sidelites. He gave an accurate estimate and was able came out to do the install the next day. He showed up on time well equipped. We were pleased with the attention he paid to ensure the doors were level and installed within the frame properly. He completed the job within his time estimate and on budget. The double doors open with ease as well as the lock set he installed. He also did a nice job of cleaning everything up. We would use him again if we have a similar project.
Gus saved me a lot of money. Im very thankful for his Honesty. Gus come out to measure a patio door i thought that needed to be replaced because one side was shattered but he told me i didnt need to replace the whole door only the glass. He was even nice enough to call the glass company and get an estimate for me. Great service. Will use him again.
Angel was amazing! He came over in the afternoon and helped us with drywall, window work, door hinges, and painting. He did great work and was super fast. I highly recommend Angel and will be using him the future for our handyman needs!
Friendly and efficient. Fixed my shower door and toilet. Very happy with the work and will definitely be calling Ali again!
I had some work done on the French Doors, new frames around the doors and had them painted. I was very pleased with the work done. Connie
We recently had our home painted and wanted to add exterior coach lights to both sides of the garage door. We had several quotes for the job (using same materials) and Mike's quote was the most reasonable of them all. We set up an appointment for the job and Mike not only showed up on time but also called to let us know he was on his way (this is rare with most contractors/installers). He performed the work promptly and added a photo cell so the lights turn on at night and off in the morning by themselves. This exterior accent lighting was the finishing touch for our home improvement project which now also adds a bit more security to our dwelling.We were extremely happy with Mike's friendly service, highly recommend him and plan to use him again in the future. American Castles and Mike Tay are class acts!
George installed a sliding glass door He did a great job and also cleaned up Very polite!
Mark initially came to replace one door and at the end he ended doing several other things around the house that needed repair. Mark is very friendly, responsible and realiable. I would recommend Mark to anyone.
Fabulous painter. Arrived on time, was polite, professional and very nice! He did a wonderful job painting walls, doors and trim. I would definitely use again, and will be referring to friends/clients. Thanks Jerry! :)
Contacted George with a list of projects I had in mind, but needed a price to see how much I could get done and what the costs would be. George came over to give me a quote and a breakdown of costs of each project and payment schedule, which I appreciated. We went ahead with the work. One of the bigger projects we had George and his team do was to knock down our existing patio and concrete and put up a new one. Old patio was 15' x 20' we did a new 15' x 40' patio. Very happy with the quality of work and the patio itself. Other projects include removing bulkhead and putting up new drywall, installing can lights, new roof, and putting up new doors. I was most impressed by two things - 1) the open communication between us, and 2) the professionalism and politeness from George and his workers. Even little hiccups were properly communicated and worked out. I will definitely be working with them again.
Timely arrival, discussion about what needed to be done and the job was done! My front door works great! Thank you!
Mark did a great job on my screen door!
John was punctual, pleasant and easygoing. He was able to complete avariety of jobs including electrical and plumbing. He also fixed my front door lock. I highly recommend him and will use him again when other jobs arise
