Fair work for a fair price. He helped me put up a wall mounted media center, assemble a Murphy bed and mount a large flat screen TV. Even if me and my friends did the same work, we wouldn't have been half as safe. Thanks!!Aug 23, 2018Verified
Mr Vlakancic was not able to help us with the initial problem we called him for, concerning a window, but he did give us some helpful suggestions on what we could do. He also helped us out with a problem with the aerator on our faucet, and he cleared it up. The aerator is working perfectly.Nov 9, 2017Verified
Paul did an outstanding job refinishing 2 antique/vintage chests. He also had to repair the drawers as they were pretty beat up. Now they are absolutely gorgeous! Notice how pretty the acorn pulls are!Jun 20, 2017
I had to reschedule because the dishwasher was on back order from Home Depot and when it did come in it was scheduled for Nov 4 delivery I was trying to move up the date but didn't work ( you did offer to pick it up with charging me but I had free delivery from Best Buy). The price that you quoted me was very high all the rest of the came at $115 so that was fair you should be there and not $140. Also the chip in my countertop is gonna cost more then that to fix. The fan was a ad on that I did ask if you wanted to do and said yes. We scheduled a 10:30 appointment which you didn't get there until 11am dishwasher was there at 10am. The Fan was not a tough job you started it then just gave up and told my renter you had to go to another job and asked to reschedule after you opened the box and had all the parts laying all over the floor. My renter told me you talked for 15 mins about the fan where he said lets do I will help you get the fan up. Then I received a call from my renter and you got on the phone and said find someone else on Thumbtack to hang it its only a fan. I was at a wedding at the time which he knew about. So he didn't do the fan but left a big mess where my renter repacked up the fan into the box. I also have company here on Thumbtack that is why I am writing this review. I only use people from this site to do business and have never come across such a in professional person. I went put of my way to get him cash for the job. I have found another person to do the fan and it got done today and there ere no worries about ruining the motor because he knew what he was doing!!! He said easiest fan he ever put up. So in the long run you costed me money on repair of the chipped counter. Thank youNov 5, 2017
