Did a fine job. $100 to drill three holes in my ceiling, put a camera inside, and show me the wet boards inside - all of which confirmed the source of a leak and is helping me to negotiate with my developer to fix the problem.
I live in a 90 year old home that was in need of some major plaster repair work on the ceiling in the garage and the basement. Mike responded almost instantaneously with a message and personally visited that same day. He followed up quickly with a written quote and kept me informed about when he would be on site. He specializes in plaster and concrete work and it shows in his professionalism and the excellent quality of his work. This is my first experience with plaster v drywall and he took the time to explain the approach/process and took care of every little crack (which I didn't even notice) and the obvious issues. The prep work and cleanup was meticulous and that is very important because the demo creates serious dust and debris. For this kind of work, a specialist/pro is highly recommended vs a handyman and of course that should be MIke. I will hire Mike again as the need arises
We called Roberto and asked him to come look at a small master bath project for us. He responded to our inquiry promptly and gave us a reasonable quote for the work. He did a great job in finishing some drywall repair, retapping around the ceiling and repainted the walls, ceiling, baseboards and cabinets. He was very meticulous in his painting and cleaned up when he was done. We will definitely be hiring Roberto again!! Thank you so very much Roberto for a job well done!
Tom quoted a very competitive price for installation of three ceiling fan boxes with wiring and the relocation of two switches and a wall outlet. We had to reschedule due to a family emergency on his side but we rescheduled promptly and the work was completed in a little over one day with very good competency. His guys were very very clean and kind. Will look to Affordable Handyman in the future.
We hired them for the painting the kitchen wall ceiling which had a couple of water stains and also for painting the deck. Ken did a good job fixing the stained portion and with the subsequent paint job. He is very sincere and prides himself on his work. As a result he is more keen on making sure the work is perfect and the customer is fully satisfied. They cleaned up nicely after the job as well.
Walt did a great job on installing car siding on our ceiling. The wood was a hot mess. It had been bought 3 yrs ago and was stored outside ünder a tarp my hubby was gonna do the work but then got sick. I would very highly recommend Walt for any hot messes you have !!! Thanks Walt sorry I didn't get to meet you Am not including photo as we have to paint the wood yet and it is a large area
Although it's only been a few days since completion, I can't say (type) enough about how happy I am with Ecopia and the work Marcin & Luke did on my entire condo (900 sq ft)!! This was a HUGE (& messy) project. They removed my ugly popcorn ceilings throughout my condo, resurfaced my kitchen ceiling, then painted practically all rooms (including ceilings). Marcin arrived promptly every morning, covered my floors with tarps and covered my belongings in plastic. He was meticulous on the work from start to finish. I got quotes from several contractors (some who discouraged me in getting the popcorn removed...and tried resift my focus on other work). Although cost was important, my decision to hire was also based on responsiveness, thoroughness of the process to be used and timeframe. Marcin was very detailed on replies to all my questions on Thumbtack, email, text and in person -- before & during the entire process. Pricing was very fair for the work performed. I was amazed how quickly the popcorn was removed, then the ceiling was primed, skimmed, sanded primed again, caulked, then 2 coats of paint were applied. Not an easy task, but again -- so thorough! Some other contractors only wanted to do partial steps...but i definitely wanted this to last, and Marcin wanted to ensure it was done properly -- with no shortcuts. Marcin worked with me on coordinating the room/areas to be worked on over less than 2 wks, so I could rotate furniture, etc from different rooms and still sleep in my place. He/Luke even helped me move a few heavy pieces of furniture! They cleaned up/vacuumed daily...so thorough that I had no problem sleeping/eating in my unit. Still can't believe how modern, airy, and popcorn-free my place is!! I'm so happy waking up and coming home to see my ceilings and walls. I'd recommend Marcin & Ecopia to anyone!! You won't be sorry. He's really the best at his craft, friendly and very positive to making my project a success. Wish I could attach a few photos of the finished product...it's beautiful! Thanks again Marcin!!
Jeff did a great job with a complicated ceiling fan install.
Robert Chwalek and his team are some of the most hard working bunch of people I have had the pleasure of working with. I hired them to remodel my entire house. They stained all of the wood flooring. They installed new wooden flooring in a room. They repainted two and half rooms. They repainted all trims, crown moldings, and doors. They installed new electrical fixtures (lights, ceiling fans) across the entire house. They even remodeled all the bathrooms. Everything was done beautifully and on time. Robert's commitment to his craft is unmatched. His attention to detail and his team management skills are fantastic. The pricing for the entire project was fair as well. A special shout out to his team member Stanley for all his hard work and the long hours he put in to get everything done on time. In the end, I am very happy with the outcome of Chwalek's hard work. The whole team deserves more than five stars. I look forward to hiring them for future projects.
We hired Lyndell to patch up some spots on our bathroom ceiling where paint was chipping and surface mold was growing. We had our entire bathroom remodeled a little over a year ago but come to find many corners were cut leaving us with small issues piling up. Lyndell was prompt to respond to our initial request. When my husband and I finally met Lyndell he was very thorough and extremely knowledgeable. He provided great details. Answered all our questions. Calmed my anxieties about our mounting bathroom problems. The work was quality and a great value. I wish we had hired Lyndell for our initial remodel. He has so much expertise. My husband and I would fully recommend him.
It was a pleasure to work with Before and After Renovation on my several projects. From removing popcorn ceiling texture and plastering to a smooth finish, to painting walls and trim, cutting and installing ceramic tile, working with doors, electrical, and even assembling and installing a murphy bed, Aldo was able to skillfully complete it all, within schedule, and with a can-do, positive attitude! He and his assistants were punctual, respectful, and nice to be around. I hope to be able to work with them again soon!
We took down an interior wall in our house so we needed someone to come in and repair the walls and ceiling. Bill did a great job. The drywall looks great.
We hired Serna to paint our basement and could not be happier with the finished product. Rangel is extremely detail oriented and didn't blink an eye in fixing numerous imperfections that he discovered in our walls that were caused by the previous owners. He was respectful of our time constraints. He also made suggestions on how to use accent paint to make the basement look even better. I would highly recommend Serna and plan to use them again on my next paint project.
Justin did a great job in our foyer with super high 18ft tall ceilings that we couldn't reach. He was very responsive and kept us in the loop of when he will be coming. He was clean and left the area like he was never there.
Ed pulled off a 2 day job in just a few hours, with little notice. He had to patch an ugly hole in a vintage 1920s plaster ceiling, even before paint, he made the ceiling look original as if the hole was never there. He also worked with me around the other trades schedules and was super flexible throughout the job and left no evidence he was even in the building.
I used Brian to replace some cracked plaster on my ceiling - I would highly recommend and will use Brian for other plaster jobs - he was punctual and affordable as well as a good communicator.
We moved into an older home in Melrose Park and hired Lance for a variety of Carpentry and Handyman projects needed as we settled in. We called on him to put flooring in the basement, build walls, fix cabinets, install wall mounted televisions, and insulate a crawl space. And other stuff that I can't remeber right now. Hee was competent, courteous, honest and very fair. I will hire him again (soon I suspect as the work in this house seems endless ;-)
Jose and his group did a fantastic job transforming our dungeon of a garage into a sparkling beautiful “room”! They painted dirty old cinderblock/brick/drywall a bright, clean light gray with white accents and the results are fantastic! The team worked 12 hours straight to get the job done in one day, were very nice, great at communicating and asking me questions throughout the process to make sure everything was painted the way I wanted. They did the walls, doors and ceiling. Looks better than I even hoped! I would recommend them to all of my friends and neighbors. Check out the before and afters!!
Isaac did a good job repairing my drywall and matched the texture in the ceiling. I have recommended Isaac already to friends.
I had a problem with my electric in my home. My dining room light and sockets all died and I had two other electricians before using Dan St Mary come in and they were unable to find even the root of the problem, much less fix the problem. I was referred to Dan and called him. He was at my house the next day and showed up on time and took his time and found the problem. He offered to fix it on the spot and I took him up on the offer. It took him over 4 hours to remove fixtures and test sockets and he was very patient the entire time and was not in the least frustrated. He explained what he was encountering in terms that someone who knows nothing about electric so that I understood what was going on. I was worried he'd never be able to figure it out or as each hour went by, wondering what he would charge me. Once he figured it out, it turned out that it wasn't even the dining room that was causing the problem, it was my bedroom fixture, he had it fixed and was very reasonable in his rate. I was so happy. I've been a year with no lights or sockets in my dining room and Dan was the only one able to figure out the root of the problem. If you are looking for someone who is patient, explains so you understand and takes his time. Not to mention reasonable rates. I would highly recommend him as your man. I paid others just to come out and tell me after taking down my dining room ceiling fan that they couldn't help me. Those two times I paid for nothing is more than it cost me to have Dan come out and fix the problem. I would definitely use him again for electric or any other things that he can fix and refer him to my friends and family now. Thanks, Dan St Mary!
We we're so fortunate to find Mr. Edward. A hard worker knows the presence of another harder work. He gets the job done; know guessing if it can get done. We had a faulty wire for our ceiling fan and he installed a new one and correct the issue! We would definitely recommend his services and we will use his services again to help manage our rental units. He is a true professional! Thank you Sir!
