I had a leak caused by a handyman's work that ran from under my kitchen sink through the sealing of my basement. Eric came on Thanksgiving Day to repair the problem. I have an older house. He even changed some of the tubes that were wearing out. It was clear from the work he did that the handyman tried to take short cuts and I payed the price. Eric stayed until the work was done. He tested the system several times to make sure there were no more leaks.. and there haven't been any. I also found his prices to be reasonable. All in all, what was a nightmare ended up being a good experience. I would definitely use him again.

I had a great TV installation experience with John. He answered questions quickly ahead of the appointment, made wires and big boxes like a router disappear behind the installation, and was clean even taking trash with him. He also went above and beyond by helping me secure a curio cabinet to the wall - something I'd been wanting to do for a year. I recommend hiring John for TV mounting work, and he's probably available for other handyman tasks too.

Neil replaced an over-range microwave for me. Great communication beforehand, and he did the work carefully and cleanly. I'll definitely use him again for similar handyman-type work.

I like that I got an immediate response. The appointment was kept as planned according to my schedule and the fee was exactly as I had been told ahead of time. Mr. Rehman was both friendly and helpful in determining placements of the lights and I will definitely request his services again as needed (great to have a handyman on call!). Quality of work and value was very good. This was a job that has been on the "to do list" for almost a year; wish I had used Thumbtack and Renew Home sooner as it was so easy!

Ben was very quick to respond right off the bat. Once we had decided on a price that we agreed on, he was at my home just a few days after, he worked around my crazy work schedule which was very much appreciated. He mounted two flat screen televisions for me, hid the wires for both TVs, as well as installed my Nest thermostat, and my two sets of curtains. He was very precise with his work, and it was very obvious the pride he takes in the work that he did, as he always made sure that everything was accurate and even, and that it looked great to my standards as well. He had a positive attitude, and made occasional light hearted jokes that made him easy to be around. Being new to the Boston area, it was very comforting to have found so easily an awesome hard worker, that does a great job, & most importantly a handyman that I can trust. Thank you Ben & Thank You Thumbtack for making it easy to find Ben! I will definitely be calling for Ben’s skill set again!

John was great! He responded quickly to my inquiry and came over the next day to address a range of electrical issues (fixed back porch light, fixed motion detection light, fixed a light switch that wasn’t sitting properly in the switch box) and other random needs ( e.g., fixing latch on backyard gate, fixed a bedroom door latch so the door could close). What I really appreciated is his explanation of everything that he was doing. He even ran out to pick up a piece I needed from Home Depot. His pricing was fair and work quality was great. I will definitely use him again as my go-to electrician/handyman. Thanks John

Ernie was incredibly responsive and kind. We did run into some difficultly with one job in particular. Mainly a roof that had significant rotting which became apparent as the flashing got pulled away. Not only did we have rotting wood and insulation, Ernie discovered a large carpenter ant nest nestled in the roof along with all the rotting wood. Time will tell as to whether or not all of the issues were completely resolved however I do want to note Ernie's incredibly hard work and dedication to getting the job done. Danielle

5 stars is not enough! He installed our doors in less time than he estimated and then actually charged us less than his estimate! Our new doors are gorgeous and work perfectly. He left the work area cleaner than he found it and even took time to keep an eye on our 19 year old cat. Pleasant, professional and the hardest working handyman I've ever known. We'll be hiring him to do our bathroom next! Thanks Bob!

J Oliveira Design Build is one of the best I have ever worked with. I hired them to paint most a condo that I bought, and they did such an amazing job. Fernando is punctual, kind, affordable, and most importantly, a talented and meticulous painter. The condo looks flawless. Fernando went above and beyond to make sure that everything looked perfect and even installed light fixtures and a bathroom cabinet. He also cleaned the condo as well and did a spectacular job. The condo looks fantastic and if I ever need painting or handyman work completed again, he is the only person I will call. I highly recommend J Oliveira Design Build to anybody looking for their home or business to be painted and/or cleaned.

Very pleased with Bob and his crew. After two years of being jerked around by various contractors and friends who said they could "easily do this" we finally found RM Paolino Construction. Bob met with us on a Saturday and gave us a detailed estimate with some great cost-saving design changes for our kitchen and bathroom. We signed a contract that following Friday and by Monday morning our bathroom was gutted and on its way. What a relief it's been to deal with a real contractor after all time we wasted with other so called "professionals". Bob has kept us up to speed every step of the way and the bathroom looks great. Can't wait for kitchen to start. Highly recommend RM Construction to anyone looking for a professional, full service contractor who won't give you the run around!

Jay installed a chandelier for me above my stairs. Although it was a tight spot, he managed to get through the project. He was professional and patient, even after running into a few snags. He did both the basic electrical work and demo/finish work. He even saw a small issue with our gate as he was leaving and fixed it free of charge. I would use Jay again for handyman work around the house.

Great work, efficient, professional. I hired them for random handyman needs for moving into a new home: installing pull-out shelves, hanging pictures & mirrors, installing a/c units, etc. I hope to use them again!

Wagner showed just when he said he would and went straight to work. He is a likeable person and easy to talk with concerning the projects I wanted him to complete which he did to my satisfaction. His number has been saved to my contacts for future jobs. I will recommend him to anyone in need of a first rate handyman.
