I had a bad water leak somewhere outside that caused water to soak the front yard, pool at the driveway and run down the street. Water bill was outrageous! On April 19, 2017, I called the water company and they sent someone out. He said there was a leak at the main water valve and pipe outside and I should also have someone check one of the toilets in the house. He advised I not call a plumber (as they would charge too much) but to get a handyman. I didn't have nor knew of one.
I got on the computer and started my search. I found "Thumbtack", sent my message and within 3 minutes Jeronimo replied. I tried to describe the problem in writing. He wrote back "it's ok, just give me the address". He was here in less than an hour. He took a look at the water valve and also discovered I had a crack in the toilet. He quoted a very fair price for repair, made a trip to the store and within 2 hours the repair to the water valve and pipe was done. He removed the toilet and capped the pipe.
The water from the toilet had done damage to the tile, subflooring and sheetrock. I asked if he could repair that. He quoted a very good price for his labor and I was to paid for the materials. On May 6, 2017 he arrived at 8am. By 4pm, everything was done and my bathroom looks almost new again!
I am very pleased with the work he has done though you do have to be very clear about what you want. If you want him to haul away items after repair be sure to state so as it is not automatic. I rated the 4 stars because I did have to clean up behind him but I would definitely recommend him!!!
I already have another project line up for him.
