Soooo, I would give them a 5 if we didn’t have a glitch in scheduling and no one showed up on the day I planned. Was it my fault? I don’t think so, but anyway their work was superior. Woody came and installed a ceiling fan, fixed a door, assembled 2 patio heaters and a bistro set. Then George came and fastidiously sanded and applied teak oil to 14 pieces of outdoor teak furniture! It was painstaking and in the sun for a total of 12 hrs over 2 days- unbelievable work ethic. (I did offer shade and food and water)...Woody dropped in and fixed a broken chair, so I can only say the greatest things about the work that was done. Better communication would have gotten them a 5... maybe 4.8?? Use them, just communicate with Michael and not just his guys.....see Michael, I’m actually a pretty nice person.

Mr. Reed did a great job! He fixed a fixture I have on an extremely high ceiling in my house. He took all the precautions to be safe. He was also very polite and professional. I would highly recommend him.

Doug was prompt and really helped me out of a fast-track situation with my kitchen remodel. He patched a bunch of holes, helped smooth texture transitions from the dining room to the kitchen, and did the plumbing work. All this was needed in a short time in prep for the new cabinets and Doug came through for us big time. His prices were reasonable. Thank you!

Our first experience with Troy was in 2009 when he worked on our bedroom extension and remodel of the master bath at our home in Grand Terrace, CA. The entire job took about 6 weeks as we had to remove a patio and deck in the process. From start to finish, Troy was professional in his work and very easy to talk to and make decisions with. He did an excellent job with the framing and roofing as well as the installation of new bathroom fixtures and tile work, both in the tub area and the flooring. If there was something we questioned or asked to have done differently (i.e., taking back a bathtub to replace it with a larger, soaking tub), Troy was always accommodating and happy to do what we wanted. When that project was completed, Troy framed and installed a new deck and sidewalk in our backyard.Over the next four years, we had more projects that we called Troy for help with and he was always ready and willing to come take a look, give a bid, and tackle the work. We had him install attic fans in the house, make and install shutters on the front windows, and paint our house. The work was always done to our satisfaction and we miss being able to call him for work we'd like to have done as he is no longer in southern CA.We highly recommend Troy Malley as a professional handyman whose work is exemplary.

    My husband and I rented an older home in order to give our almost two year old son more room to play. The house was terribly outdated and had bad paint, old appliances and carpeting everywhere, including the bathrooms and kitchen. It left a lot to be desired. We hired Noe based on seeing his previous work in another home. He repainted the walls for us flawlessly and finished all the trims by hand. We were grateful and even more impressed by his tile work. He tore up ALL the carpeting in our home and replaced most of it with tile. His work was very precise and he is clearly someone who takes pride in his craft. He also replaced the appliances, sanded and stained the hardwood floors (which were hidden under the ugly carpet in a few rooms), painted the baseboards, replaced a wall radiator and cleaned up all the debris and trash from the remodel. It took him about a week to do all the work himself, the job was priced fairly and the work was very high quality. We would definitely hire him again and recommend Noe to family and friends. My only thought for improvement would be for him to create a website for the company. That way we could easily direct people to his site for all their home improvement needs.

    Duane came to my home and moved a new dryer into my wash room. But first he had to install and connect the propane line. He was very efficient, cleaned up after himself and test it to make sure there was no leak. I will call him again for help on other projects I have around my home,

    Dave installed a toilet, pedestal sink, gas stove and dishwasher for me in a span of just over 3 hours. He tested all of the above to insure there were no leaks and that they operated properly. I was very happy with the quality of his work and the reasonableness of his charge. When the need arises I will definitely consider him for future work.

    I had HandyGreen Home solutions install a very expensive Fireplace/big screen TV Lift cabinet in my bedroom. He arrived on time, was very polite and professional and in a clean and pressed uniform with a well marked service truck. Dan was very competent and efficient and obviously knowledgable about every aspect of the complicated install. I couldn't have been happier with his attitude, knowledge and work. Calling him a handyman is a joke. This guy is a real educated professional.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How does a chimney get cleaned?

    A professional chimney sweep can clean your fireplace and chimney to help prevent chimney fires and keep your fireplace running in peak condition. Regular chimney cleanings are critical for removing the highly flammable creosote that can build up inside the walls of your chimney over time and cause chimney fires. When hiring a cleaning company, ask the chimney sweep if their cleaning fee includes removing soot, creosote and blockages from the chimney flue and liner, cleaning the smoke chamber and shelf, and cleaning the firebox and the damper to ensure that you’re getting a comprehensive cleaning. Expect the chimney sweep to cover the flooring around the fireplace and properly seal off your fireplace opening to catch any soot that comes out during the cleaning.

    Look for a chimney sweep who has been certified by a nationally recognized organization such as the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), Fireplace Investigation Research and Education (FIRE), or the National Fireplace Institute (NFI). This will help ensure that your chimney work will be completed in a professional manner and your home will be safe from a chimney fire.

    Do I need to clean my chimney?

    A fireplace makes a home cozy in winter, but it also requires cleaning to keep your family safe. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), 28 percent of home heating fires are caused by a failure to clean solid-fueled heating equipment — primarily chimneys. On top of that scary fact, nearly 20 percent of all fire deaths are caused by home heating equipment. At a minimum, the NFPA urges homeowners to have chimneys and fireplaces inspected once a year to ensure there are no obstructions blocking the flow of air or any buildup of dangerous and highly flammable creosote. A certified chimney sweep will know what warning signs to look for and have the proper tools. Besides personal safety, saving money is a great motivation for having a chimney sweep regularly clean your chimney. If your chimney liner is not kept clean and in good working order, replacing it can cost thousands of dollars. A yearly cleaning is the baseline for a safe chimney. If your chimney is your main heating source, ask your chimney sweep whether you should have it cleaned more often. If your chimney is not venting properly and smoke is coming into your house, if you notice that the wood you burn is not burning efficiently (turning completely to ash), or if you have other concerns, call for a chimney cleaning and inspection right away.

    How much does it cost to have the chimney swept?

    The national average chimney sweep cost is $100 to $130. The National Fire Protection Association recommends having your chimney inspected at least once a year, but daily use and other factors might mean you need more regular service. Here are several reasons your chimney sweep cost may be higher than the national average:

    • Overly dirty chimney: If you haven’t cleaned your chimney in many years, or if you’ve just bought an older home and don’t know how long it has been since the chimney was cleaned, excessive grime could increase the cost of the job.
    • Roof height or chimney height: The chimney sweep may also charge an extra fee if your roof is too high for a ladder to reach or is too steep to safely climb on without a harness.
    • Frequency of use: If your fireplace is your primary heating source, the buildup of soot might be far greater than if you just use your fireplace a few times a winter when company comes over. This may impact cost.
    • Excessive debris: Leaves, twigs, and other debris that’s collected in your chimney is a fire hazard and should be cleaned immediately. An excess of junk may result in higher chimney sweep costs.
    • Live or dead animals: Prepare to pay extra if live or dead animals are in the chimney. Rodents, birds and bats can all set up camp in your chimney. A chimney cap can help prevent them from getting in, but once you hear something scurrying around, or smell the unmistakable scent of dead critter, call a chimney sweep immediately.
    • Geographic location: Chimney sweep costs may be higher in your city due to factors such as a higher cost of living or higher cost do business (insurance, overhead, employee wages, etc.).
    • Chimney repair: Any repairs that are needed internally or externally to your fireplace will increase costs. A thorough cleaning and inspection will reveal whether repairs to masonry, tuck-pointing, the back wall, bricks, the fireplace floor or the crown are needed.
    • Chimney cap installation: A chimney cap prevents debris from collecting in your chimney as well as preventing animals such as birds, mice, or raccoons from taking up residence inside. The cost of the chimney cap plus the labor for installation can increase fees.

    How often should you have your chimney swept?

    Regularly having your chimney cleaned is highly recommended both to improve the chimney’s efficiency as a heat source and to prevent home fires. The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommends having your chimney inspected at least once a year. You can hire a chimney sweep to clean the chimney while also inspecting it to ensure there is no damage to the lining, firebox or masonry. If you’ve had a new fireplace or wood-burning stove installed, CSIA urges you to have it checked halfway into the first season of use to make sure it’s operating safely. According to industry standards, a chimney sweep is recommended if more than 1/8 of an inch of soot or creosote has built up in the chimney or flue. Some fireplace experts suggest having your chimney cleaned, regardless of buildup, after every 1-2 cords of wood burned. Consult with your chimney sweep about what is best for optimal efficiency and safety with your fireplace.

    How long does it take to clean a chimney?

    A typical chimney cleaning takes between 30 and 60 minutes. Wood insert fireplaces may take longer to clean, as can chimneys that contain birds’ nests, excessive debris or wildlife. A chimney sweep will arrive at your location and assess the fireplace to be cleaned, and will set up protective coverings or dropcloths to prevent any ash or soot from escaping into your home during the cleaning. Using high-powered vacuums, they clean out ash and other debris in the firebox. With special, long-reach brushes they brush down the interior walls all the way to the top of the chimney to loosen and remove built-up soot and creosote. Many chimney sweeps also offer inspections in tandem with cleanings to make sure you don’t have any cracks or damage inside the chimney or out. Repair work or additions — such as installing a chimney cap — can increase the cleaning time.
