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.

Had AA Cardenas re-plumb the piping under a kitchen sink as the previous contractor did a sub-par job. AA Cardenas came by and did a quick assessment, gave a ballpark figure then a formal proposal. After we agreed upon price and work, they came out and promptly performed the job. Completely satisfied with their performance and will hire AA Cardenas for future work.

Excellent service. I had to replace my water heater and got multiple quotes from plumbing companies who made it seem so difficult. Jose replied to my request right away and within 30 minutes he was already at my house ready to start work. He picked up the water heater and didn't mind to finish work the same evening even though it was already late. He did an excellent job replacing the water heater and even checked with me the next morning to see if everything works fine. I will definitely work with Jose again Keep up the good work!

Jose is great! On-time, friendly, and considerate. I love it when contractors dont mind teaching aspects about the project, describing what they're doing and informing. And are not bothered when people are curious. Never felt like I was on the clock with him. A great plumber / handyman that I would gladly re-hire again! Thanks Jose!

I don't know what else you could expect from a contractor the Cruz doesn't gladly provide. He's professional, prompt, reasonable, and he's a man of his word in general. He continued to pleasantly surprise us. If you're looking for someone to trust with your home or your family's health and safety - I would speak with him first (no charge by the way).

Ralph built a deck and fence for me about a month ago and the work was absolutely great. His prices were very reaonsonable and he did the job in a very short time. By far, one of the easiest and nicest contractors to work with. I would recommend him to anyone as he finished the job on-time and the deck and fence looked great!

For all of your handywork needs,Chaojun is your man. The BEST and most prompt service I've ever experienced - efficient from start to finish, and clever with finding creative work-around solutions to assembly or repair services where most others would give up. He even helped me put up my Christmas decor, which was above and beyond the requested service. Very trustworthy (enough so to have him work on projects even when I'm not at home), and he will offer realistic advice and consultation if something else needs to be purchased in order to complete your project. I hired him for a large interior re-design project that included complex assembly, mounting, and light electrical work. Would refer him to friends and colleagues without hesitation!

First time I have been thoroughly happy with a contractor service! Albino was great to work with from the start. We needed to sand and refinish a 300sq foot deck. He came quickly to give a quote (which was reasonable), then got the job started immediately and done within planned time frame (we were on a tight timeline). Rigoberto did most of the work and was very professional and kind. The quality of the work was great, even better than expected and cost was exactly as pre determined with no surprises. Would definitely recommend him to others and hire him again if needed.

These guys are awesome -- the price was 1/4 of what our realtor's painter quoted us, and they are doing our entire house in 3 days. We are one day in to the painting and it looks fantastic. Albino and Juan are very nice and worked really hard all day today. I will definitely be referring them to others. They are also connected with other ancillary companies in the city, like a lighting company to do recessed lighting. Was nice to get their help finding someone to do that for us. Thank you Albino!

I was a little leary due to the very low price. Usually you get what you pay for. I was pleasantly surprised to find the workmanship was very good and the price was half the cost of the contractor/handyman that was referred by my realtor.

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.

Matthew Kelly is hardworking and honest. He strives to make the job go as well as possible. After other contractors said no or did not return my calls, he responded quickly on the weekend, and he completed the job in a timely manner. Matthew's operation is lean and responsive.

Ben was courteous and professional. He automatically knew we were a shoes-off home and respectfully worked with special care to be clean and neat. He brought his own large mat that spread open to collect any debris. He completed 8 light fixture replacement for us. He was organized and worked systematically. I appreciated his clear communication and taking the time to explain how the light fixture we had are made to be 'flush mount' yet will have few mm gap due to the way it slides into place. He spoke respectfully and patiently. Ben is clearly experienced and knowledgeable.

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.

Bill is a dependable do-it-all handyman. He was super responsive with all his communications from the initial quote to follow ups. He arrived timely as promised. What impressed me a lot was he is super honest and will give you a straight up assessment of what can and cannot be done and offering the best price possible. While I had him install a new kitchen faucet, he found additional water piping to replace (as the original builders did not do it up to par) at no additional cost. A friendly and quirky guy, that brings honest and dependable service!

I had a water leak issue that was coming through my downstairs ceiling. Issue was due to a backed up shower drain line. Found Vyron on Thumbtack and he contacted that evening to set a time to come by an assess the job. I also needed base Board for the downstairs as well as reinstalling tile in 4 spots from a previous radiant floor heating leak. Vyron was right on time. His quote was very reasonable so I hired him. The time Vyron arranged to begin my repairs was again, right on time. He immediately began his work with a crew. He unclogged the shower drain, removed the damaged drywall and reinstalled new drywall. Installed all the base board and reinstalled the tile. He quoted a time frame of 6-8 hours. He completed everything in 7 hours. He and his crew were very clean and organized. Vyron is professional and friendly. I highly recommend Vyron Salinas. Thanks Brett Larson

Vyron was the most responsive contractor we had, originally unsure if we were going to use him for just the demo or the demo + remodel, and he was diligent and professional the entire time. Vyron removed around 300 sq ft of tile and he laid new tiles for us. Our floor was on a cement base (uneven) which he evened out for us as well. They were on time, cognizant our my dogs when they came in and out of the gate, and even recommended the pattern which we LOVE! I highly recommend him and offered to be a reference as well. Thanks Vyron!

Vyron and his team were great. They remodeled a small guest house for us - flooring, ceiling, painting, plumbing, windows, cabinetry. It was a 3 day job. They always showed up on time, worked extremely hard, were professional and pleasant. Vyron is very focused on doing a quality job. He clearly has a lot of experience doing all types of remodeling projects, and offered several valuable suggestions. I would definitely use again.

We are very happy with the remodel that Purev General Contracting did for our guest bath, family room and spare bedroom. Guree and Eric did a fantastic job and were very easy to work with. The crew was fast and efficient and always left the worksite clean at the end of each day. They installed a new sliding door, relocated the bathroom door to a different wall, drywall, installed luxury vinyl plank flooring, baseboards, recessed lighting, new carpet, paint and even repaired some unexpected dry rot that caused structural damage. Both have great attention to detail and take pride in their work. I would not hesitate to recommend them and will definitely be using them for future projects.

Initially, I hired Purev General Contracting to handle the demolition of my kitchen in preparation for remodel. I was so impressed with the work that I have hired the company to install hardwood flooring in the entryway and vinyl tiles in the kitchen. After the removal of ceramic tile in the entry and carpeting in the main hallway, Hada, the job supervisor pointed out that under the carpet was hardwood that could be refreshed at a cost less than re-tiling. He is in the middle of the job now and I'm sure that there is another good review to come.

I did a full home remodel with Rudy. He is an awesome contractor to work with. He has a team that is well skilled and hardworking. I have very good attention to detail, some would call me a perfectionist. Rudy worked with me to get the remodel quality that I wanted without going over my budget. I have never been able to communicate via e-mail but he always answers my phone call. My suggestion is to just call him and talk to him directly on getting a quote and any issues that come up during the remodel. Rudy even went out of his way to build my kitchen cabinets and closets because I purchased them from IKEA, for the original agreed upon price. I don't like the cheap cabinets from the Chinese stores. It comes fully assembled but I'm not impressed with the quality. In summary, I would hire Rudy and his team at CaMex again for any remodel work I need.

Rudy was patient and professional in working on my electrical issues. He offered a menu of options instead of the usual contractor spiel where it's one high priced project or the highway.

My family and I recently hired Custom Dreams Tile on 11/09/2015. We loved the work they did in our main bathroom. The craftsmanship of the delicate glass tile was excellent. Junio is very professional and polite, they where always on time and kept us updated every step of the way until completion. The tile work was completed ahead of schedule, we could not be happier. We appreciate how flexible Junio and his crew where with our questions and changes of pattern with the tile setting. Our bathroom looks amazing and we will definitely hire them again for our upcoming kitchen project. P.S. At the end of the project Junio even offer and took the trash/debris from a previous contractor, for free to help us keep our backyard clean. Thank you.

Nicki guided us through an upgrade to our kitchen. She's skilled in suggesting appropriate colors, and was able to keep me from flailing all over the place staying in the correct "time period" within our Victorian home. That was huge because I was all over the map and needed to tethered. My husband was often distracted with work so often Nicki and I slogged through selecting appliances, tiles, mable counter tops and paint colors. She also works with a wonderful team of artisans, cabnet builder, seamstress, and many other skilled workers. In the end we love our beautiful new kitchen and will work with her again. However, the project that was worrisome was with the marble counte tops. They are beautiful and a good choice, but we just needed to know more about the process of transforming a big slab of marble into counter tops. It was way more than I thought. There was a moment when construction was almost halted because fabricating the marble into counter tops had not been given proper consideration in regards to the amount of time the process took. Nicki ultimately came to the rescue, finding someone on short notice. That was our only hiccup. We loved working with Nickie and certainly recommend her to others.

I want to share our very satisfying experience of working with Nicki. She designed our living room and kitchen – the layout, the color palette, all the materials. The result is elegant and functional transitional style kitchen. She picked the colors and materials so beautifully that it almost feels like all elements – the wall and floor tiles, wall mural, cabinets, etc.. talk to each other. Kitchen flows smoothly and harmoniously into “neighboring” spaces. Given how utterly and hopelessly uninteresting our space looked (1970th townhouse) it got transformed into something refined and special. We like it very much every day! Nicki has great knowledge of places, people and materials. She is practical, precise, organized and mindful of budget constraints. All her advice have proven to be gold! Nicki is a true pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her!

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.

Work performed was for installation of bathroom exhaust vent and OTR microwave with exhaust vent. Written estimate was provided days prior and all necessary installation materials were purchased by him as agreed. Mess was kept at minimum by covering immediate work areas but I still had a lot of cleaning afterwards due to the spread of sawdust (windows were left open). Contractor and his helper completed the job in the time promised. Unfortunately, the microwave vent did not function as needed (not venting air to outside as expected). Contractor was notified and he returned in the same week to rework the vent. He was apologetic and showed good effort in diagnosing and fixing the problem though a little guesswork had to be done by both of us since we didn't have the installation manual. The outcome for both vents was acceptable though my perfectionism says otherwise. LOL. Overall, he was polite and showed professionalism throughout the entire process. He was patient and timely in responding to all our concerns. He was able to acquiesce to our preference in materials/appliances and allowed us options regarding the installation. We felt like he valued our input and we had control over the process especially since this was our first time dealing with a general contractor.

Juan remodeled our unfinished attic space (about 700+ sq ft) from top to bottom and turned it into a new office studio. He laid out the framework, ran electrical wires, put up insulation and drywall, painted and stained, added window trim, installed hardwood flooring and baseboards, and added storage cabinets. He was able to finish our attic in three weeks, and for a very reasonable price. He is a very hard worker, and really creative with his solutions. He always had helpful advice for me when I wasn't sure what decisions to make. He is now our go to contractor when we need work done around the house. I highly recommend him for his work quality, professional etiquette, and ease of communication. I am very happy with the work he is done, and can't wait to work with him again.

Working with Juan was a terrific experience. He is very transparent about setting expectations: what is he going to do, how is going to do it and how long will it take. He will get the work done in a timely and clean manner. We were able to book him in advance (which was about 2 weeks prior) but I understand he will do his best to accommodate clients on a shorter notice. If you have been struggling with other handymen/contractors (as I was!) I truly recommend you to use Juan's services - he is super easy to work with and very reliable.

Mohamed is great, I highly recommend him for the job. I had to mount a new ventilation hood on my range top, because the new model I bought was very different from the old one, it would require the chimney structure be to torn down and rebuild. Most people did not want to take the job due to the complexity, Mohamed showed up on the first day of new year and was very precise on what he planned to do. He had a set price and communicated with me well during the work of each step he did, (most contractors don't really communicate with you withe the details of the work). The job was very complicated and not without obstacles, we had to redo the ducts twice to make the ventilation work, but he really spent the time thinking about the best solution, rather than just delivering an end product. Overall, highly recommend him.

We moved into a new house in January, 2017, and needed plumbing and electrical work done immediately. We changed almost all of our piping from galvanized to copper and redesigned the piping to a new kitchen we were adding. Additionally, we had a number of electrical fixes that needed to be done. We chose Mr. Jimenez over others we spoke with, and it was an excellent decision. Mr. Jimenez worked us into his busy schedule and completed all work very quickly. He works with great attention to detail and is professional in every way. He cleaned up after each task and taped paper to our floors to further protect against construction wear and tear. He was able to bring in competent assistants when needed, and everyone was courteous and demonstrated care with our home. Mr. Jimenez is a true gentleman and spoke with us clearly and with respect. We plan on using his services as we further improve this home.

Our old tank water heater started leaking, and we were interested in getting a tankless unit. I had three plumbers come take a look. The first two pointed out that the gas line was 1/2" which severely limited our tankless options. David was the only one to take a quick look in the attic space and see that the gas line was actually 3/4" right up to just behind the wall on the other side of the heater, where it was brought down to 1/2", making for an easy fix. That alone saved us a lot of money and headache, I think. David did the replacement efficiently and professionally, our new unit looks good and is working great. I'm glad I found him, he does quality work and I'd happily hire him again in the future.

Dennis , the owner of NBPE did an excellent job finding the problem and solving it. He was right on time and had great tools to clean out our 4 inch plumbing line. He discovered one pipe was set the wrong way during an earlier repair by another plumber and was able to replace that section of pipe. Everything worked perfectly after that and the price was very reasonable. He even gave a 150 discount for the exploration. I would definite recommend this contractor.

I hired them to lay the engineered bamboo floor in my condo. They did exactly what promised and in the time they originally specified. I have been doing remidelling and construction of my rentals and my resident for the last 10 years and very much familiar with the business. Out if many contractors or handymen i met Jason and Regina are the outstanding team. They work fast, they are very proactive and attentive to details. And their price was reasonable. What is the most important for me is that they do listen to my suggestions - not like many macho style contractors:). The floor work looks absolutely great and i am very happy. So that i would like to hire them for other work on my rental property.

I hired Sergey to do a full remodel of one floor (~1,500 sq. ft.) of a house in the Richmond in San Francisco. Full gut of kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and rebuilding of a small extension. The whole space was painted and floors were refinished. Nothing was left untouched. On communication: Sergey is very, very responsive. He will answer all texts, phone calls, emails etc. and if he happens to miss a call (which almost never happened), he returns it in minutes or sends a text to let you know when he can talk. On value: The quality of work is very good. Sergey works with a contractor named Artur who is a whiz at his job. Artur fixed every problem, made a few things I thought were not possible happen, and he was just really, really great. Between Sergey and Artur, they were able to realize the vision I had of my house. We were not significantly over budget. I do wish that Sergey had a better system for reimbursement of receipts. For example, Sergey bought things like trim, siding, and extra plumbing parts that I was to reimburse him for. Though I asked him for receipts multiple times, Sergey would show me pictures of receipts on his phone piecemeal and each receipt contained other purchases of rough materials that he was to be responsible for. Just confusing and difficult to do an accurate accounting. I just ended up paying him what he told me was the amount for all the reimburseable purchases without really seeing the receipts. Do I feel like Sergey fluffed the receipts? No, but I still would have liked a clear accounting of them. Overall, there are little details that were missed like small scratches in the refinished floors possibly made by ladders or tools, areas where paint wasn't retouched, socket plates that were installed sort of loose etc. BUT I am being picky and I can live with those little things. This next bit is the important part. Sergey has continuously made trips here and had workers come fix little things even after this project is technically done. This is a huge bonus and shows a sense of responsibility toward the project and pride in his quality of work that is certainly appreciated. On timeliness: This is where my biggest gripes lie. This was a 4-month project and we took 5 months to complete. Everyone expects delays in construction and I did too. But, it's the way in which the delays happened that frustrates and still irritates me. Work here was about 85% done by the end of month 4. We scheduled movers at the end of month 5 because Sergey promised that everything would be 100% finished in the extra month's worth of time. 10% of the remaining work was dragged out for the next three weeks. I let Sergey know again and again that movers were already scheduled for a certain Friday and that everything had to be finished before then. Sergey said ok and since the only work left to be done was installing all lights, light switches and socket plates, I felt relatively good about everything. The entire week before move-in day, no work happened. Sergey told me all of his workers were coming Friday to do the remaining work. I could not believe this. Friday was move-in day and I had told him I needed time for cleaners to come since everything was very dusty from the construction. There is no other way to summarize the end of the project other than to call it a complete and unmitigated disaster. Sergey had 4 people working while we had movers moving things in and since Sergey had told me cleaners could come that Friday, we had cleaners there at the same time. Things still were not finished and instead of being able to use that Friday night and Saturday to unpack, work was still ongoing so we had to cram all unpacking into that one Sunday. Also, since Sergey had said the house would be ready for cleaners, I hired people to do a move-in clean for $450 which ended up being a total waste because workers were still creating messes everywhere. There was no accountability on Sergey's part for this. The amount of stress created because of the blown timeline was huge. Overall: Basically, everything was going great for 95% of the project. There were small hiccups, a little bit of tension and miscommunication here and there, but honestly everything was going pretty well for such a large project. I am still sour about the end of the remodel which Sergey knows and understands. The project just did not have to end this way and it was his job to make sure of that. However, I do have to emphasize that Sergey is continuing to come back and take care of small issues such as installing toilet paper holders, a heating grate that had been lost but turned up, fixing our shower fixture handle so the water could get hotter, etc. It's been almost a month since we moved in and as time passes, I feel less angry about the end of the project mainly because I am really enjoying the space Sergey created for me and because he is still responsive and taking care of leftover project odds and ends. Will I hire him again? I'm not sure. We have a lot more large-scale work to be done so we will need contractors soon again, but it's hard to say right now. However, it's a strong possibility.

If we could give Wise Stage Remodeling more stars than 5, we would! We hired Wise Stage Remodeling to finish a very difficult and messy remodel in San Francisco (single family house). A previous contractor messed the remodel up beyond belief and left it in shambles, while we were out of town. None of the new contractors were even willing to consider taking this job and we were desperate. Sergey from Wise Stage Remodeling responded to our request via Thumbtack. He gave us a very reasonable estimate and timeframe to finish the project. Sergey and his team (especially Arthur, his carpenter, who's amazing with cabinets, doors, tiling) were extremely diligent and hardworking. They remodeled the kitchen from top to bottom, as well as finished remodeling the rest of messy unfinished projects of all levels of difficulty throughout the house. Sergey and Arthur pulled us out of a very messy situation and made the impossible possible. They were both incredibly responsive and accommodating throughout the entire construction process: hardworking, honest, and polite guys. Their attention to detail and ability to face our complex construction issues alleviated a lot of stress and pain on our part. We simply lucked out w/hiring Wise Stage Remodeling. We've been through a number of remodels with a few of our properties in San Francisco, and never had a more pleasant experience with the contractors. We would absolutely, without a doubt, recommend hiring Wise State in a heartbeat!

I hired Ben several years ago for a couple of small projects. He did a very decent job. He was professional, responsive, and reliable. And, this is an easy-going guy! We talked a lot about other things and I was very happy with the work he has done! This is why I called him for help a couple days ago when my fence was almost down ;-( He came over immediately, checked the fence, and told me he can do it within my pretty limited budget. What's a nice guy! Again, the job was done perfectly! In these projects, Ben has shown great professionalism, responsiveness, and kindness. For me, I think I found a right person doing my projects!
