Walter is a true professional, very skillful and precise to detail, as well as a gentleman. I hired Walter for a smaller project of reseating an exterior back door. He met me at my home to look at the task and give me a price which was competitive to the other professionals on this site. He was able to confirm right away that we needed to reinstall the door with the proper support. He told me what materials were needed and I went to Home Depot that evening to pick them up. 10 minutes at HD and I see Walter loading a couple sleds with material for another big job. I say hello and he stops everything he's doing to help me run around the store to gather the material needed for my project. Two things should stand out to someone hiring someone for a job. 1. This guy works and he must be good to get a project this size and 2. His selfishness in taking the time to help a client gather the right stuff. He shows up on time for our appointment after first calling me 30 minutes prior to meeting and says he's on his way. He was very prepared and put down proper drop clothes to protect everything from debris and dust. I'm that annoying homeowner that likes to watch what's going on and Walter didn't mind at all. He informed me of every step along the way. We ran into a slight issue which took a little more time than we both expected but understandably that what usually happens when you're fixing someone else's mistake. At the end of a full day he had removed the pre hung door, inserted the proper headers, replaced the footers with pressure treated wood, patched the concrete meeting the footer, waterproofed the footer, reseated the door, and trimmed out the finishing with the casings I bought to match our windows and a saddle. My wife and I are very happy with the outcome and as I told Walter, we will be calling him for other projects. As a homeowner you only wish that someone will take the time and not cut corners, as if the work they were doing was on their own home. We feel that way after working with Walter. Thanks again!
Milton was excellent--I gave him a laundry list of small things around the house to do (fixing our garage door openers, changing some light bulbs) as well as assembling some children's beds and he did all the tasks very quickly, efficiently, and cleanly. I highly recommend him. He's great!
We only signed up for thumbtack in hopes of getting a less expensive bid on our project than the one from our original contractor, what we got was the Fratturos! From the moment Harry and Brian (father and son) walked in and started looking around our kitchen, which was totally gutted from a flood, you could tell they had done this many times before. From our simple Home Depot design sketches and sharing of our ideas they were able to give us great advice and some do's and dont's on our kitchen remodeling project that we received from no one else. Two major selling points on our second walkthrough are why we hired them. They were able to figure out that the placement of our kitchen island was going to interfere with both opening the oven and our back door! Huge save... Then when we discussed not having enough storage space they took the initiative to measure out just enough room for a pantry and wine rack just off the Dining room table area. We were impressed, and sold. We handed them kitchen project and our basement refinishing project which included moving walls, doorways and remodeling the bathroom. We couldn't be happier with their work. The estimate we received from Fratturo Home Remodeling was actually a bit higher than we wanted to go... but we trusted them and that's priceless. I believe we saved in the long run, because there were no surprise fee's after the project started or extra costs due to poor planning. I highly recommend the Fratturos and thumbtack!
Herson Lopez and his team executed three projects simultaneously for us: re-roofing our house, a complete exterior paint job, and the re-building of our front porch. Their work was excellent, and the end results look terrific. More importantly, though, was the fact that all the work was completed on-time and on-budget. In addition, Herson was personally involved in project oversight, and he took the time to communicate with us on a regular basis as work progressed. I highly recommend Herson, and I will gladly rely on him for future work!
Daniel was very professional and gave excellent advice and options. He was prompt and very well priced. I felt very comfortable having him in my home and he was quick and very efficient. I decided to get a keypad lock for the front door. He went out of his way to get the right color for me. I highly recommend his services. You won't be disappointed!
Dan was hired to assemble and install IKEA cabinets in the kitchen. He did an impressive job they look beautiful. It was part of remodeling of our kitchen and as a contractor he scheduled his time around and with both the electrician and plumber. It soon became apparent that his skills on other parts of the renovation was invaluable. He opened the kitchen up in ways we didn't know was possible and offered ideas in the design that made our little kitchen more spacious then we thought possible. His help with coordinating color and patterns made this old kitchen in to something you might see in a magazine. We love it Thank you Dan! My Mother is a bit of a perfectionist and making her happy can be a task at times, but he accomplished it with a very professional attitude and skill. I have worked with other contractors before who can be tempermental with poor communication and disappearing for weeks at a time Not Dan he always kept me in the loop and was available for every concern. As for any improvement in hind sight the kitchen floor should have been covered the whole time because the plaster dust was somewhat difficult to scrub off the floor. And can I mention he did this while 2 small kids were Home on vacation and often in the way. His patients are to be admired as he always had a good sense of humor and a positive attitude.
Glenn Scelza is a godsend. My old friend desperately needed help of a good carpenter to come and assess the benign neglect on the front of her antique home. Garage doors needed to be installed post haste, but the garage door company needed the repairs to be made first. I posted on Thumbtack and Glenn responded immediately. Glenn arrived and I could tell right away what a nice guy he is and is a seasoned carpenter/contractor. He assessed the project with a trained eye and zeroed in on what was good in terms of the construction and what looked bad to us, was very doable indeed.. He was very resourceful and made use of what could remain and shopped locally which I loved, for lumber, gutters, leaders and even found the novelty clapboard pieces to match the 1940's facade. He was very fair and open about what things would cost along with his craftsmanship which was worth every penny. I appreciate he could even work with us so late in the season even as winter weather set in. He will be present right after the holiday weekend to connect with the garage door people. When those vintage looking doors are installed the place will regain its curb appeal once again, thanks to Glenn. This guy is a keeper and I can see why is highly recommended! I add my recommendation to Thumbtack as well as our neighbors in the community. I look forward in working with Glenn on future projects. Thanks Glenn! Norm Peekskill, NY
Arrived on time, fixed rotted wood on front porch and roof areas, did very nice work. Would recommend Pablo.
I hired Bruce to replace my front door and repair the jamb, sill, frame & trim. He did outstanding work, very friendly, done exactly when he said it would be. A year later and the work is holding up precisely as it should. I would highly recommend hiring him for whatever you need.
All hiring aspects went smoothly. Found a better date for the work then anticipated. Even an unscheduled surgery did not prevent these guys from finishing on time. Made good/excellent repairs to a window and front door. Would highly recommend!
Alvin has done an outstanding job for me. He has put in basement windows, a new banister in my basement, a new door on my bedroom closet and created a door for an entrance to my attic. He truly is a find and I couldn't be more pleased.
Ben is very conscientious and reliable. Excellent communication and workmanship. I highly recommend him. He replaced trim and repaired doors on our outside shed as well as cleaned our gutters.
I had an outside hot water heater where the old door just completely fell apart and off the hinges completely. We couldn't afford to buy a custom door right now and so Bob did an amazing "MacGuyver" job and found out a way to fix up and rehang the door using the existing one-and it looks great. We also had a heavy gate that was off its hinges and he knew just what to do to get it back on track. While he was here he even tightened up the other matching gate (even without me asking-very nice). We also had a large front door hanging lantern that my husband could not get to work but Bob figured that out too. And on top of that he was extremely nice, went out of his way to make sure I was happy, and his charges were more than fair. I would definitely recommend him for so many things around the house--will for sure hire him again!
I am very happy with the service Paulinho Home Improvement LLC has done for us. He replaced our front door and it looks great. would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs home improvement work.
I met James when he was Sheet-rocking a wall for my next door neighbor. I was immediately impressed with his work ethics and knowledge. Over the past two years he has repaired my ceiling after water damage, he has installed faucets, he has power washed and stained my deck. He has painted my bedroom, kitchen and foyer. He has also redesigned my front entrance. Everything was done within projected times frames, professionally and reasonably price. I was alway very satisfied with his work. C. Reyes Shrub Oak NY
Great customer service and experienced. Hired for Cabinet repair and front door repair. It would've been easy to pay a lot more money for a new door when our current door was repaired at a fraction of the cost and is working just like new. Same day service was available if I wanted to start immediately. We Look forward to having them back for more projects and remodeling. Highly recommend giving A Local Handyman a try.
Frank did an awesome job remodeling our bathroom. Frank and his guys are real professionals! I would recommend him to anyone tha needs a great contractor!
Oscar and Miguel did a beautiful job sanding down and painting my front doorway. I would definitely use his services again. Extremely clean and efficient.
After purchasing our home we discovered a large amount of wood rot. Tom worked with our insurance company and was able to complete the repairs within our budget. We had him do a few other small jobs as well. He added a wall and a door going into our basement. I would highly recommend his work. Jason Bates, Guilford CT
Vick at Servi-All was an absolute pleasure to work with and we are thrilled with the results of all his hard work! We initially hired him just for some cabinet painting, but our project evolved, and we made some mid-way decisions, discoveries, and changes, but Vick took on everything in stride and was patient and professional. Vick is responsive to texts and was easy to get ahold of when needed. Above all else, the quality of all his work, and especially his cabinet painting (completely removed door fronts, applied several even spray coats to both sides, painted everything else in place) was top notch! We also had him install plank flooring, paint the walls and ceilings, apply a tile backsplash, tile the entryway floor, and handle some other odds and ends. We couldn't be happier with the results and would definitely recommend Servi-All to others seeking similar.
Had lots of work done by James. Laminated floors. Cabinets and counter tops in kitchen. All my doors replaced in my house. Side back and front of my house. Put in brand new deck in my yard. His work is excellent. He is a very clean and perfectionist worker. He also installed a hot water heater, and other little odds and ends in my home. I Recommended him to many other people who also was very happy with his work.
