Dave is more than outstanding. Not only is he professional, he can also think on this feet to resolve a very difficult door issues that we had for a long time. We live in a high end home and had 2 contractors work on the problem Each improved the situation slightly but the cause of the problem was never truly understood until Dave came along. One reputable door company even tried to sell me a new door. Initially, I was extremely wary of using someone from Thumbtack as there was no way to check credentials and bona fide references. Dave has certainly surprised us on the upside. He is cost conscious for his clients and does not recommend a more expensive solution if a cheaper one can be had. I watched Dave work the entire 2 hours he was here. He spent a great deal of time troubleshooting and then came up with a game plan that we both agreed would be ideal. He's a hard worker and an intelligent one at that. In the future, I will call on Dave to do maintenance work on our home without the slightest reservation. Ting P.
Arisel handled a small hardwood repair job in our kitchen. First I'm grateful that he offered his services. Many contractors only bid big jobs. Second he followed on his commitments to me, being on time and following up the next day with a touch up. I did not have to follow up. He was good to work with. Third I think he did an excellent job with the conditions he had to deal with. I recommend him.
We had some bathroom and general work done around the house a couple of months ago. He was very responsive, on time, and very helpful
I had a complicated project where I had one universal remote/receiver controlling two ceiling fans. One of the ceiling fans stopped working. Before hiring Ben, I had 2 other contractors who couldn't fix the problem. Ben was the only one who has able to troubleshoot and solve the problem. His price is very reasonable as well. I will hire Ben for all my home electrical issues!
Byron is a great contractor. He is responsive and very professional. Will hire him next time.
Andres was FANTASTIC! He responded to a small job we posted during a kitchen renovation for a complicated appliance install. I couldn't find anyone who could do it. He showed up ready to do whatever it took. He offered great input in helping us make decisions, always said it was no problem to make it happen, and got right to work. He had all the tools necessary to get the job done. He was clean and courteous. His wife worked with him and she was quiet and clean as well. We ended up giving him almost 3 days of work and he far exceeded the work we had previously done (he stained our wood counter tops). We will be hiring him for all our handyman/construction needs in the future. We highly recommend him.
Bill is a stand-up guy - he gave me an initial quote for my leaking bath tub, which I felt was high, so I asked him to come by and give an accurate estimate. He came the next day, and quickly explained that he was seeing other problems like the marble floors being uneven in color so an acid wash was included in the quote. After I explained I wasn't interested in that part, just the leaking tub, he gave me a very reasonable estimate. The problem we had in essence was a missing piece- he and I problem solved how we could fix the problem without the missing piece. Lots of ideas were flying around and he was open to trying out many things. We finally flipped the tub and took out the hose to implement one of the ideas and luckily the missing piece was still stuck there. That meant that we could have a full fix - and Bill did an awesome job in fixing it. I finally paid him more than he had asked for, which I felt was fair. It felt like I was doing a project with a buddy rather than a contractor. Bill was very easy going - would recommend him highly for future jobs.
Brian did a office remodeling for me including demolition of a whole room, removing many built-in cabinets, rewiring, and finishing new walls. He mostly worked alone, but his work was meticulous. Brian is one of very very few contractors whom I can actually trust. (I have built a 8,000 s.f. house among other building projects, so I have experience with many contractors.) Brian will do what he promised, at the price he promised, within the time frame he promised. Highly recommended for all remodeling work. Thank you, Brian, for a job well done.
Both Rudy and Angel were very professional. They contacted me within an hour and came to my house to give me a free quote the next day. I was very satisfied with the electrical work they did. They completed it within the time frame provided and even helped me clean the house. Very impressed with their work. I will call them again for any of my general contractor needs.
After researching many contractors and companies, my wife and I ended up choosing Eli to completely redo our new home. Our last experience, with our previous house was a disaster so this time we were very picky and took our time choosing a contractor that we thought would be a perfect match with us! There are a few reasons why Eli was more then 100% perfect for us. 1. The cost was right around the cost of the other contractors we met with, who offered us less and did not seem to want to incorporate all our dreams. 2. Eli listened to us and followed exactly what we wanted, and never got tired of listening to us about anything. 3. Eli and his team were professional, clean, and extremely friendly throughout the entire project. 4. Eli only uses top-notch materials, unless otherwise specified, and makes sure to give you the highest quality in every aspect. 5. Eli and his team were amazing from start to finish, easy to talk to and everything was completed on time! There are so many companies and contractors in the area, and the service and professionalism that Eli delivers is far greater then anyone else. Designing and remodeling our home was actually a fun, joyful thing that we absolutely enjoyed because of Eli and his team. This is the best outcome we could have ever dreamed of considering the fact that we were so nervous in the beginning because of our last experience. We are so happy and have already referred Eli to some of our friends because he is just that amazing. We love Eli and his team and recommend him to anyone who wants a pleasant experience with remodeling!
Loved working with JUNIO! I interviewed few contractors & he is by far the most understanding & efficient. He offers competitive price & has great work ethics. His tile work came out better than what I've expected! Thank you Junio for the great work & excellent customer service! Look no further & hire him!
Nicki has been the designer for 2 of our home remodel projects. For our kitchen/dining room/living room she created an open contemporary multi-purpose fabulous space that we love every day! She coordinated with the contractor on all work. For our master bathroom/bedroom and den/2nd bath--again she executed great use of space, color, and design. We loved that she got what our personal tastes and design style was. She created original designs, including custom cabinetry and tile work.
Hugo was responsive and followed up...rare these days for contractors...he and his team were at my house 15 minutes early and repiped my 1600 sq ft house with copper in 7 hours...did a great job
I have used Henry multiple times over many years for drywall repairs, crown and door molding installation, interior/exterior painting, and even a bathroom remodel after some serious water damage. His work is always top-notch with fine attention to detail. By now, he has practically upgraded every room in my house. I know I can always trust him to provide quality work no matter what the situation, so he is always the contractor I call on for this type of work.
This is by far the best framing crew I have worked with on any of my projects. Not only did they follow the plans exactly, they treated my site with respect. They left it clean everyday and made accommodations for my clients living in the home. They will be my go-to crew for future projects. Joe Wetzel General Contractor
I was able to schedule estimates with 5 contractors for my bathroom remodel. Each definitely had their own approach with a few being extremely pushy trying to talk me into doing work I didn't want to do! I believe Green line was the 3rd appointment I had and Manuel Sr & his son Manuel Jr definitely stood out to my family and I. They listened to what we wanted, gave me a few options and honest recommendations (which actually involved less total work = less money). I really appreciated the honest no pressure approach. It was also very clear to me that they had a lot of experience because they were able to point out a few things that no other contractor brought to my attention. Service: I'd say the entire process was pretty seamless, Jr or Sr were always available through call or text, no issues with cleanliness or picking up materials. They use a progress payment system so we paid them as they completed certain phases of work which I really liked. They were able to recommend retailers for the finish materials which was very helpful. Work Quality: Craftsmanship excellent, tiles were set beautifully and look stunning. About half way through we decided to go with their recommendation of doing level 5 texture through the vanity area into the bathroom (which they gave a VERY good price for), this was a great suggestion as it really helps in bringing a cleaner modern look. Paint, vanity and fixture installation were all done very nicely. Over all very satisfied, we will be calling Green Line back to do the guest bath in a few months. Price: They were not the cheapest estimate I received. I decided to hire them because they felt trustworthy. Which is a hard thing to achieve after one meeting. However I am EXTREMELY pleased with the price I paid for the finished product. They explained to me in out initial meeting that this type of finish work requires a certain amount of money to do properly which I completely understand now. They were also not the most expensive which is surprising for the transformation they accomplished. Thanks guys! -Christina
In my profession (Hotel General Manager), I have worked with many contractors in building hotels which were shady, dogmatic, lazy and came and went as they pleased. And now looking back at those experiences, I wish today I would have had John as the main contractor. His work ethics, time management, communication, tenacity at the job, fair price point, genuine care for me as a customer were not only visible during the job but resonate in my mind and hear still today. Everyday I walk into my warehouse and I look at the job he completed (stair case) it brings a smile to my face and a pep in my step. The wood work he completed breaths and sings excellence and heart! Thank you John for restoring my faith in contractors.... there are still men out their that care for the craftsmanship that they do. You have a true talent and art that many others need to try. And your personality and warm heart are icing on the cake. As I stated to you.... my next building (construction job) has your name all over it! Well done....! Bethinketh Co. places our seal of approval on your amazing work!
We decided to get the services of Dario at a point when we were in a time crunch. We had to tear down a half bath which sat on concrete foundation and convert to a full one. We also had to build 2 non-standard storage units. He gave us a fair estimate and an approximate timeline - the timeline he provided was not ideal for our situation - but we still decided to proceed with him. Here is a person who will answer/return your calls, reach your place before time and is honest. He is the first contractor whom we did not have to call 5 times before we got a response. This aspect of his work is crucial but often overlooked when people are looking to hire a contractor. There were several hiccups during the project, something which is expected. But Dario was on top of things and made sure that the overall timeline of the project was not compromised. In fact he also paid for a few things out of pocket. And this was all accomplished along with going through the city’s permit process. He was present for all inspections and made sure that that process also ran smoothly. He was receptive to feedback and changed/retrofitted anything that we found unacceptable. His team of people is also great and we never had any issues working with them. Dario would visit the project site every day and made sure communication was clear between him, his team and us. We highly recommend his work and wish him luck!
Dynamic, good communication and teamwork between contractor and customer. Benny offered several ideas which gave the project added value, saved time and some dollars.
The Contractor is very knowledgeable. The projects have been completed to my satisfaction in a timely manner.
Max is an honest and honestly over-qualified contractor (he also does structural engineering in his spare time). He has built several of my designs, and engineered many more. He is reasonably-priced and responsive. He keeps me and my clients happy. Guy Ayers, Architect, Los Altos, CA.
