I was in urgent need for a handyman, as a large part of a wall, insulation & floor in my storage closet was damaged by my leaking water heater. I decided to try Thumbtack and was very happy to see that Arisel from AA Cardenas reached out to me and said he can start work immediately. He was very prompt in replying, and very easy to reach on phone & text before, during and after the work was completed. When he came, he assessed the work to be done, gave me a very clear outline of materials needed and the labor cost. He told me he could finish the work in 2 days, which is exactly what my deadline was, and he did finish all the work in 2 days flat! He offered to go and pick up all the material from the hardware store, and worked till late on the first day to make sure he got as much work done as possible. He was very professional in putting up new insulation, patch sheet rock, applying texture to blend with existing wall texture and paint the area. He always cleaned up before he left and was very open to me asking questions about various things he was working on. Arisel was very nice to talk to as well, and he was accommodating to all my questions. He even came back 4 days later, at my request, to put floor molding. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with the work Arisel did, and would definitely hire him again.
Cruz was very responsive and came and assessed the rodent problem in my backyard. He even suggested that my neighbor's yard needed to be secured. He finished all the work in a timely and professional manner, came back to check traps, and further secure the garage. Cruz is a versatile and good handyman who specializes in rodent proofing. I highly recommend him.
Ricardo mounted my TV on an extendable wall mount and also hung a heavy mirror on the wall. He showed up on time, prepared and quickly finished the job. He's experience and professional. I have old walls, so he had to drill a second hole in the wall to install the TV, which he patched up without asking. I'll be definitely be calling on Ricardo for jobs in the future - I highly recommend him.
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.
Vyron and his team did an excellent job for my hallway bathroom and molding and doors for three other rooms. They did a pretty awesome job in tiling our bath room and fixing the drain problem considering our tile is quite big. They are very polite and easy to work with and they do show cares to our home and was able to fulfill all our requests with high quality job. Vyron also came back to finish a bunch of small stuff and brought me the leftover paint I needed and two duct covers they accidentally sprayed when painting the door. This is true customer service and will definitely use again or recommend to friends!
Gleo assisted with multiple projects to prep my home for sale. With little over 2 weeks to get repairs and enhancements completed, Gleo responded in a timely manner and dropped by to assess the job. I own an older condo with pretty outdated systems - doorbell mechanism, ceiling fan/light remote fixtures and AC. Thus, it was challenging trying to find out how things were connected and installed and where they were located. Gleo had to do a lot of extra research and testing to find the source of the issues. He accomplished this all through diligence, skill and the desire to do a good job. I was very pleased with the results stemming from the repairs he made. From start to finish, Gleo gave me the full confidence that he would go above and beyond to get the job done. His pricing for services are beyond fair despite the fact that spent multiple evenings and hours to perfect and fulfill the required services. Not only will you find a skilled, professional contractor but a fair, good-natured individual with a heart of gold. Thank you, Gleo!!!
Such an incredible experience from start to finish. Gustavo came over same day to give me a quote for a front yard fence which was highly competitive and started a couple days later. He and his team were efficient, friendly, kept me looped in to the process throughout and adapted easily to anything I requested. The fence turned out beautifully. I would use this team over and over again!
I employed Milko to powerwash and stain my redwood deck. I found that he had all the characteristics that I look for in a contractor - punctuality, responsiveness, and professionalism. He was really concerned about making us happy, as opposed to just finishing the work and getting on with his next job. He was the first one that brought samples of finishes (not just showed us pictures). We were very pleased with his work and will use him again when we have something he can help us with
Noel did a beautiful grotto at my house. My family and friends were very impressed with the work he did. His attention to detail is excellent. If you need carpentry work or any handy work he is the person. Happy Customer May M.
I hired Jasper from My Apartment Is Better Than Yours. I think they did a terrific job at a very reasonable price. I'm really pleased that I decided to go with them. I had a number of unusual carpentry tasks to complete when I moved to my new place. The windows were old and the wood was irregular and moldy, so the wood around the antique glass panels needed to be replaced. I was told those windows hadn't been opened in 40 years, but now they work perfectly and you'd never know the wood wasn't original. Also, several doorways lacked doors when I moved in, and were unusual rounded shapes cut into the stucco without doorframes. Jasper was able to make me custom doors with antique iron-wrought handles, and they look awesome. I also needed threshholds worked on, cabinets put up, new benches made for my roof deck, a custom projector and screen put in, antique chandeliers installed, a lock repaired... and I'm probably forgetting one or two things. They are in the process of putting the finishing touches on my humidor (they had to build me custom legs for it), and it's going to look spectacular. Anyway, they knocked it all out of the park. They were prompt and clean and didn't cause much of a disturbance despite all the work they were doing. They'll be my go-to for anything I need done in the future. I definitely recommend them.
Hired David, very honest in the quote and explained what needed to be done. I needed some baseboards replaced in my foyer, and the baseboards in the living room and dining room needed to be properly installed since my HOA sent their installers and they were terrible (HOA had to replace my hardwoods and the installers laid out the floor fine but baseboards looked terrible). He made a visit and inspected the areas, gave a quote and showed up at scheduled day/time, got to work and a few hours later the place was good to go....great job. I believe he is based in Southbay but covers the entire Bay Area. Any general carpentry/handyman type stuff, that you can't handle or just want to get done, I would recommend him.
Melki is true craftsman, loves what he does and goes above and beyond to make sure that the job is done right and to customer's complete satisfaction! He is my go-to carpenter now.
Come on time and finish the project with good workmanship.
Regina was great to work with. She was helpful throughout the process helping make tile recommendations and finished the work on time. Our fireplace looks great.
Ivan came on time with a talented partner, and finished all of the work in one day.
Rafael is very professional. I hired him for a number of projects, such as installing dishwasher, range hood, kitchen faucet, door locks, garbage disposal, outdoor light fixtures, fixing windows handle, etc. He did amazing job and quality work. For example, previous cabinet is 36in (two 18in doors). Rafael installed 24in dishwasher and made a 12in door like the original cabinet. It is really amazing. When he finished his work everyday, he always cleaned everything up. He also cares about details. I would like to recommend him to everyone, and I would like to hire him again for my future projects.
Alex was great! We hired him to do the floor tiles in our bathroom. When that went great, he said he could do the backsplash in our kitchen. Both jobs were timely and turned out super. Next we needed help with the stairs for our back deck. Alex took on the job and also finished building out the deck, stairs and railing. He delivered on time and within budget -- two things that aren't easy to come by. We highly recommend working with Alex.
Eduardo was extremely helpful with the updating my of grandmother's house. I live out of state and his company was able to finish the project on time and on budget. They did great work and we will definitely be using their services again.
I highly recommend Israel and his team! They finished the project within the exact time quoted and under budget. Israel was easy to contact and always respectful of our time. Our new fence is better than we hoped, and are excited to bring the team back for future projects.
Really enjoyed working with Dermot Chawke. He did all of the finish carpentry on a remodel of the first floor of our home. He installed doors, hardware, baseboards, other trim pieces, and shelves; rebuilt an interior staircase; and custom built shelves and cabinets for an area under the stairs. He was easy to communicate with, always showed up when he said he would, had great ideas to maximize storage space, and did great quality work. Would be happy to use him again in the future.
As a General Contractor, I have brought Devin on to help me with numerous projects and, regardless of the respective capacity, he has consistently been top notch. His services have ranged from highly specialized carpentry (after my 20 years in the business, Devin is one of only a hand full of carpenters I know of who can be trusted with complicated finish work) to project manager where he has worked directly with homeowners on large scale remodels and additions. Definitely one of the best in the business.
