John was/is great to work with! We're using him on a number of projects around the house; including finishing our garage, remodeling a patio, and (possibly) installing a skylight. Thanks for your help on our projects!!
Our experience with Hector was amazing. He installed cabinets, lighting, and electrical work in our garage (basically remodeled the garage). He is extremely hard-working and treated the job as if he was doing it for his own house: no shortcuts. His prices are very reasonable and he is a man of his word! You cannot go wrong with Hector! Excellent work and we look forward to working with him on ALL upcoming projects. We have found a handyman for life!
The project was to move a door in our master bedroom and change it to a pocket door. It required him to build new supports, install new drywall, paint, etc. Oscar did a great job and was very responsive to all of our questions. He even went to Home Depot to pick up all of the necessary materials. Will be looking to hire Oscar the next time we have a project at our house. Thanks Oscar!
American Castles Mike To the RESCUE!!! The water heater at my rental property burst on a Friday afternoon causing some major damage to the house. The renters were furious because their items got damaged and the house wasn't inhabitable after that. On the inside, the bathroom wall and under stairway closet were all soaking wet and drywall/carpet/padding had to be removed immediately to prevent mole build up. On the garage side where the water heater located, the entire wall was destroyed. so I called my home insurance who provided me with their preferred plumber who quoted an additional $540 out of pocket on top of what the insurance was going to cover just so he can bring up the water heater installation to code! He told me that it will take him 1+ week to order the water heater (duh...get one from Home Depot take only 1hr...which is what Mike did) and that he can install a temporary water heater and will charge $137/wk! He also referred me to a water damage restoration company which I was not too happy with either. Since it was an emergency and I went with that company. They came in and ripped out all the wet drywall without caring for any molding; especially for garage doors and closet doors! It seemed like what ever the water heater didn't damage, they did. They also broke my water heater intake shut off valve. damage the water heater over flow copper pipe. All I can say is I will not use them again! Back to the plumber, something was smelling fishy about his quote and so I called and questioned this plumber. His response was "Well, I will need to flush out the gas line and calibrate your water pressure...upgrade to the new California safety quote...put in earthquake straps...install new vent line since the new water heater nowaday don't use the old vent line!". I was not convinces so I started to Google for good local contractor and AMERICAN CASTLES (Mike Tay is the owner) came up from Thumtack along with few others from other websites. I contacted them and they came in and provided me quotes. Mike was the last one I contacted. He arrived within 30min. He checked out the damages and explained to me what needs to get done sequentially to get everything back in proper operation for my tenants. Mike is very knowledgeable and very patient in explaining things. I told him what the plumber had said, he laughed and told me the whole thing was a rip off and a scam! Another crock of bull**** and advised me against it. He told me to call my insurance company to inquire about using other plumber. Sure enough I was offered the "cash out" option which I didn't even know was available. I took that option and went with Mike for the repair. Mike knows how important it is for my tenants to get the hot water running again once the water damage restoration company completed the clean up/dry out the area (took 1 week). As soon as that company removed their equipment, Mike had his crew come in the next day (Saturday) to repair the garage dry wall and finished the installation of the new water heater and brought it up to code on safety on Sunday! He even added the water pan and installed drain pipe for me. I didn't even know such a thing exists (talk about quality...he treats it like repairing his own home!). The best part is his charge for the whole job including new water heater, earthquake straps, valve, drain pan, vent and new connection is far way less than what that plumber was going to charge me. I loved the fact he took the time to show me how things should be done up to code and what works for my situation instead of just giving a price and walking away. He did an awesome job! Unfortunately my landlord insurance's deductible was so high, I asked Mike to give me a quote for fixing the damage in the garage and inside the house. Mike's quote was very competitive and the best part is he is always willing to work with me knowing my situation (thx Mike). My bathroom paint is 16 years old so it was a challenge to match the paint for the new wall. After only quoting me for painting a small wall inside the bathroom, Mike decided on his own to paint the entire bathroom without charging for it. Now that what I call TAKING PRIDE IN YOUR WORK AND STICKING TO YOUR WORD!!! My summary is, Mike successfully completed the entire job and installation in four days. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone and will definitely be using and referring him to everyone I know.
After looking into our project (drywalling garage and some demolition), we realized we wanted to wait on this project and save up for a better budget that would serve our needs better. However, our experience with George was very professional from the get go. He called and stopped by the very same day I posted the project. He provided an estimate on the spot, and even stopped by a day later to drop off a written estimate. Since we want our garage to serve as a gym/work area, we realized we needed a bigger budget to serve our needs and have the final project be as nice we'd like. George's professionalism left me feeling very impressed and comfortable with him. This is the type of man you could trust both inside/outside of your home, and for this reason, I'll definitely be considering George for any work my home needs in the future!
Soo good - very happy with concrete and tile job in guest house. Like that they didn't turn nose up at work on my weird converted garage - worked hard to troubleshoot all its issues and turn it into a lovely guest house! Also came early each day, just as promised, and worked hard all day - both unusual for LA.
Dan is a true handy-man! His attention to detail is impeccable - he will not stop until you’re satisfied with the project. He is a jack-of-all-trades and is so knowledgeable about everything you need done around the home... from installing a tv mount, to building kitchens, hanging lights, or installing a barn door, to changing thermostats or sanding down cabinets and so much more. Just ask and he will help. He is trustworthy, very responsible, honest, and passionate about any project he decides to take on. You are in very good hands with Dan. I highly recommend him!
We hired Juan from after hours handyman two seperats times. One for building a bookcase for us and installing it into the wall and another time to build two bed frames. Both times, a wonderful job was done and we are very happy with how everything looks. Juan and his teammate are professsional and kind. We would definitely hire after hours handyman for any other house related jobs we may need. Highly recommend them!
Ross did great job with my roof that I needed to have fix to comply with our city building department. He was efficient and completed the job within a few days. I would definitely use him again.
These guys were very polite, honest, hard working, respectful and did very detailed work. Used them for wood siding, baseboards, house painting, roof work and other general house repairs. They can do anything! Will use them again.
We did a lot of research to find the right contractor to build us a free-standing recreation room. We actually hired a different contractor first, simply based on having the lowest price. What a terrible decision. We quickly came to regret it, and fired that contractor as soon as we could — a costly misjudgment. Even though Owl Construction’s cost was a bit more, though very reasonable, we knew he was the right contractor for us. Guy Hazan of Owl Construction is fantastic. He was so easy to work with. He’s a compassionate listener, and kept us informed and at ease through the entire process. I don’t know much about construction, and had never undergone a project of this size, but Guy was there every step of the way. He explained everything very clearly and addressed any questions or concerns we had from day one to the completion of the project. I also must mention the Amazing Anesta. Anesta is a gem to this company. She kept the communication light and easy, and got the job done. She is responsive, dependable, organized and kind. The final building is stunning. The contractors did such a great job all around. To think what a nightmare it would have been to have continued with that original contractor who bullied and didn’t listen. Owl Construction was absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend them to anyone.
I have worked with many contractors on various home and office projects. This was my first time building out a retail store on a tight budget, with champagne taste. Brad & David turned out to be the ideal contractors for the job. These guys don’t just build what we agreed upon, they made me aware of all my choices beforehand and helped guide me to all the right design decisions. And even their crews of builders and painters were exceptional craftsmen. Brad & David brought my project in exactly on budget and before the deadlines. They are real pros and every question and request from me was promptly responded to. I will happily work with them again and feel lucky to have found them.
The Egal Construction team was one of the most down-to-earth, honest contractors I've ever hired for a job in our office building. When we ran into an issue, they jumped on fixing it in an impossibly timely manner. Five stars, 10/10, all of the accolades I can give. Hire these guys!
Hired these guy to hang drywall and paint my inside of my garage that I converted to a home gym. Finished in two days.
I got an estimate from Harley for a landscape project at my house. He came on time. He was courteous and professional. After I described my project to him, he spent about 30 minutes measuring the grounds and drawing an impressive layout of the landscape project area to give me an estimate. I decided to postpone the project due to financial reasons, so I didn't actually hire him but would consider hiring him.
Had our kitchen and bathroom renovated by Fidelity GC two years ago, and just recently had our garage converted to a mother-in-law suite. We are so pleased with fidelity GC service, the team was very professional, and throughout the project We felt that We are in good hands. Highly recommend. Thanks
Thaddeus did a fantastic job doing the stucco and putting up new drywall in my garage. Great price, fast and clean job.
Jack does everything in his power to maintain the budget and schedule despite the normal challenges associated with construction projects. He is extremely professional and courteous to customers, inspectors, managers, etc. I highly recommend him and his company. Michael A. Reyes VP/GM LISI Aerospace
Knowledgeable, experienced, personable, honest: everything you need in an excellent electrician. We’re so grateful our garage has power again, and that it didn’t take forever or incur life changing costs to get it up and running again. I also feel so much better now that I know it (and the house) is safer than ever.
After bidding with four contractors for a garage expansion, brick porch and patio installation,roof & window replacement I chose CJS Construction Inc. based on referrals and cost. I highly recommend Tino Arteaga of CJS and the entire crew, work was top quality and any suggestions and changes I mentioned were quickly resolved even after the fact.
Being a person who tends to fall into a true Do-It-Yourselfer, I was reticent in having someone else do our Master Bath and Powder room remodel. I simply didnt have the time between work and family commitments; I was forced to relinquish the job to someone else. I spent a month interviewing contractors, with roughly 50% no shows and 40% I wouldnt trust building a dog house, let alone even letting them into my home. Of the remaining 10%, TREEiUM (specifically Guy Borenstein) stood out as being one of the top three. After a final interview and some pencil sharpening, I gave the nod to TREEiUM. TREEiUM started when the said they would, and finished the job on time and within budget. Best part of all, there was no DRAMA! Guy was there every step of the way, and answered any and all questions I had, even on the weekend! Do your homework when vetting these contracting companies; TREEiUM should be one of your final three contractors. From my perspective, if you are looking for a contracting company, I highly recommend TREEiUM and Guy Borenstein!
