I got 4 or five responses quickly , selected a contractor and the job was done as promised. Completely satisfied.
I hired Sergio to repair a variety of household electrical problems all over my home which I am preparing to sell. THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE MAN. He returned my first call within 24 hours. We scheduled the job and he arrived on time and sat patiently waiting 15 minutes for ME as I was delayed by a medical appt. But he had NO COMPLAINTS about my tardiness and did not rush through any jobs to make up for the time lost. Sergio is very patient and super pleasant to work with. I can't say enough good things about his ethics, his heart, soul, and dedication to his CRAFT, his creativity and sticktuitiveness, his insistence that there IS a way to fix ANY problem and then his willingness to go for it NO MATTER WHAT IT TAKES and no matter how long it takes. My impression is that his joy comes from the customer's delight in a job done well. I have worked with many many service professionals and contractors. Sergio, BAR NONE, is the best of the best. I will hire him again, and again, and again for as long as he is in the business. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 stars is not enough - AWESOME SERVICE - GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND - CREATIVE - HARDWORKING - KNOWLEDGEABLE AND WISE - EXPERIENCED - OPERATES WITH VERY HIGH STANDARDS - INSISTS ON DOING JOB CORRECTLY NO MATTER WHAT - ADDRESSES ERRORS MADE BY PREVIOUS ELECTRICIANS - GOOD INSTINCTS - PROVIDES EDUCATION AND USEFUL TIPS TO THE CUSTOMER - EXPLAINS WHAT HE IS DOING - DOES NOT CHARGE WHAT OTHERS DO YET DOES MORE AND DOES IT RIGHT - KIND - TRUSTWORTHY - FRIENDLY - PATIENT - GENTLE SPIRIT - PROFESSIONAL AND RESPECTFUL For my job, Sergio came with an assistant and they worked together seamlessly as a team, as if they were dancing a waltz, each one anticipating the next step in the process and doing their part. Sergio doesn't just work for the money. What he does is for a living seems to be an intricate and fundamental part of who he is, and thus his good works proudly represent him. SERGIO YOU ARE SUPERB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!
Ron and his guy installed two light fixtures and three ceiling fans for me. They did a great job! Were very responsive, on time, and the work was great. One of the ceiling fans needed further adjustment, so he came back and fixed it no problem. Our regular contractor wanted to charge four times what Ron did. I am thrilled to have such great work available at such a reasonable price. Thanks, Ron!
Talked to gal in office. They were out that same day (December 23), and we couldn't get the leak to happen (we were watching it). I called back the next day (Christmas Eve). They came out again, and replaced the faucet that day. Matt did a great job. Very helpful and very professional. He was willing to take time on the project, even though it was afternoon on Christmas Eve. He helped me to pick out a faucet, as it required replacement. I'm pleased with his work. He also did some courtesy checks (system pressure, hot water heater and expansion tank). He was barely finished and on to the next job, when the office called again to check up on how things went during the job. The only thing is the price was a bit high. But, we're paying for the office staff, too. After being burned by independent contractors in the past, I really appreciate the check up and friendly communication that the office provided.
The repairman, Leroy Butler was outstanding in all areas except providing a list of costs other than just the total. I wanted a breakdown of the labor and parts involved in the installation to evaluate the value compared to other potential installers. I was very impressed with the automation of their processes and friendliness of all involved. I was also impressed with how quickly ThumbTack provided a list of qualified contractors.
My husband and I originally hired Men at Work (Dean Otlacan) to remove 2 existing windows in our manufactured home and replace with a much larger french door with vented door combo. This was a huge task for anyone, but Dean and his son were VERY knowledgeable and had the door in by days end. We were so very impressed with his work and the care that he took with the installation. He treated this project as if it were on his own home. We immediately hired him to change out the windows on our home as well. We've got more projects lined up for him in the near future. I speak for my husband as well, we have made "Men at Work" our General Contractor for all the work we cannot do ourselves. I only wish I could post the before and after photos....AMAZING work!
This was our first time working with Jim's Carpentry. After the recent heavy rain and thunderstorms we had a piece of vinyl siding partially detach from our house, as well as a window valance that was completely removed. From start to finish, it could not have been a better experience. Jim was able to schedule an estimate the same day I posted on thumbtack. He was on time for the estimate and quoted us a very reasonable price. The price was so reasonable that we decided to have the shutters and the front door painted as well. When Jim noticed the hardware on the front door was rusted, he said he would replace it at no charge if we purchased the hardware...Nice!!! He was able to start the work the following day and again showed up exactly when he said he would. Jim took time and care to mare sure the work was done correctly and beautifully. One of my neighbors came over when Jim was working. We all chatted for a minute and Jim's demeanor is so relaxed, my neighbor was already practically hiring him for some work on his house. Jim finished the work the same day and it looks really really good. Jim cleaned up afterwards as well. My wife is proud that I hired a top notch contractor. I didn't want to admit that I got lucky with Jim contacting me for the job! Truthfully. I normally wouldn't bother leaving feedback on a service. This experience went so well that I would feel like a real jerk for not letting everyone know how much I appreciate the work Jim did. I certainly recommend him for your general contracting needs. Deck expansion in the future!!!
Rob Early and his guys did an excellent job installing our privacy fence and extending an existing fence on our property. He listened to our needs (keeping our persistent dogs in the fence!) and frequently asked for our input during the project. Rob was timely and finished the project before we even needed it completed. I recommend him to anyone looking for a contractor in the triangle area!
My father-in-law was a well-respected general contractor for the past 50 years, with specialties in masonry, stone work and carpentry. With my husband growing up in the business, he can immediately tell the difference between good and bad contractors. Ron is a very thorough, honest, and true craftsman who did a phenomenal job in remodeling the 1st and 2nd floor of my workshop. There arent too many contractors like him these days. Not only did our project surpass our expectations, he stayed on budget and on time. I would highly recommend Ron for you home remodeling needs.
When my wife and I decided to upgrade the floors in our house, we had three contractors come and evaluate the job to estimate. One never called back, one gave us an estimate, but had the attitude that he didn't care if he got the job or not, and then we met with Jesse of Floors N' More. His communication was first rate. He arrived on time and we discussed what we wanted to do. He measured for precise calculations and that night I had an estimate, a very reasonable estimate. Jesse makes you feel good right away about why you should choose him and his company for the job. We agreed to terms, got on his schedule, and he was there ready to go when the time came. During the whole process he communicated his progress and included images. We checked in on the project a couple of times to view the quality of his work to make sure we were getting what we were paying for. He did not let us down! When the job was done and we saw it complete for the first time, we were ecstatic! He did a great job. No matter who you contract with, you never know what kind of job will be done until it's complete. With Jesse, you don't have to be concerned. It gets done right! Thanks Jesse for a job well done and we are looking forward to working with you on other projects discussed.
I would highly recommend Lockett Handyman Services for any general repairs. Paul was right there hanging a heavy mirror I could not manage, fixing my piano lamp that movers took apart and left an impossible mess, installing an electrical dimmer switch for a too-bright chandelier and replacing dowels that movers lost from an antique desk - all in little more than 2 hours of time!
Awesome level of experience and professionalism, his workers and contractors have already been weeded out from the others and boy can they deliver. This is the guy to use!!!
I hired Dan to install a new, permitted, 550sqft freestanding deck. Dan did an excellent job and was very easy to deal with. He showed up every day at the time he communicated, which is not typical of contractors. The project turned out to be much larger than we both anticipated, but Dan stood by the initial estimate on which we shook hands.
Great company. Rob has a great work ethic and knows how to manage projects big and small. After working with over 20 contractors on Thumbtack, this is the company I plan to hire for all future jobs.
Erin's crew did a great job capturing my vision of custom built in bookshelves. They worked hard, got the project done in a day, which surprised me. Did a good job cleaning up. Erin is a busy contractor--had one or two times we needed to reschedule and be flexible with time, but it was definitely worth it for the final project.
We were preparing our home for sale and knew we had some windows with broken seals that needed to be replaced. Hellis Family Glass was very responsive to our request to come out, was prompt with a quote and even helped bring another contractor to the table to repair some rotted wood. The only thing that could have gone better was to have had a better explanation for how long the ordering of the glass, getting it in and then scheduling the work was going to take, in advance. We were surprised when it took more than three weeks to get it done.
We did not hire this contractor but we appreciated their professionalism and the time they took to bid the project. Would consider again in the future.
Wilson, the owner/operator of The Rock Remodeling, did a shower pan and a new shower valve, and did an excellent job. I've hired more than my share of contractors, and can honestly say that Wilson is top-notch. His dedication to service is apparent the moment you meet him, and it doesn't fade once you hire him. I will definitely look to hire Wilson for future jobs.
After having a really bad contractor, Tim and his guys were amazing! Their quality of work was outstanding! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect bathroom. They even did my add ons at the last minute. I would definitely recommend them. I will be using them for my master remodel as well.
Communication with this contractor was difficult at first. Took a long time to get the details sorted out but in the end it was a very good product.
I called several contractors (12 to be exact) and received a call-back from eight, one being AMC Contractoring. Carlos, the owner was professional, prompt and thorough; he scheduled someone out to assess the work within a day and showed up himself for most of the work on every day of the project. We hired AMC to get our house ready for sale and Carols respected our budget and event found additional ways for us to save money and make the project better. We had to make a small change to how we wanted to repair some damage, and Carols quickly amended our quote with no delay to the start of the work. I noticed later that some paint in a room looked off and Carlos came out the same day to repaint the room. The thing is, I was mistaken and the room was not part of the original project. Carlos laughed it off and said that it was both of our mistakes and didn't even charge us for the extra room. I've never met a contractor who was willing to build-up a relationship rather than build-up an invoice. For that reason AMC is now working on a project to get my monther's house ready for sale as I write this review. Even better, AMC's cost was competitive (no hidden fees, as was the case with several of the other quotes) and the quality of the work was excellent. We will definitely use AMC's services again in the future.
