Jason was good. Replaced both valves on pipe in the basement. His work is excellent. The only thing I was not aware is the price quoted did not include parts. It included labor only. I would recommended that this be made clear for future quotes so that proper expectation is set.

Michael was hired to remove and old utility sink/faucet in our basement, install a replacement sink/faucet, replace a failed washer shutoff, replace a spot light fixture on the back of our house that had fallen off, and fix some problems with our vinyl siding. Michael showed up on time and completed each and every job to our TOTAL satisfaction, all in a single day! His work is of the highest quality. Michael is quite knowledgeable about all aspects of home repair. I would not hesitate to hire him for any future projects. I've already given his number to multiple family members and friends who need an honest and capable contractor for their projects. THANK YOU MICHAEL!

Greivin is a very reliable, honest and responsive contractor who did a great job at repainting our house. I offered him the job after he submitted the best bid among 4 contractors to paint my 1340 sq feet house in Hoboken. My walls were painted in dark colors with different rooms having different colors and we were shifting to all white - he did a great job that needed four coats and also agreed to repair our wooden floor in a small corner for no extra cost. He has done a great and timely job - in a condo building, he did the job with no disturbance to neighbors. Highly recommended.

I want to thank Darin Sliker for all of the help he provided for me and my mother. I live in the state of Va. and my mother lived in N.J. I had been trying to secure a contractor for repairs that were needed in her tenants bathroom. My mother is 85 yrs. young and needless to say she did not know who to contact for this job. So after trying several contractors, a cousin of mine suggested I go online to "Thumbtacks.com and the rest is history! Darin was very friendly, helpful and very informative. He didn't mind me calling, texting or emailing him at any time. That meant so much considering I live out of state. The work that was done to the bathroom was great and I will always be grateful to Darin and those who worked with him on this project!

Mr Roman has been one of the best contractors I've found on this app! After going through three plumbers he finally diagnosed the problem and completely fixed it so that the sewer ejector system is working and no more flooding problems. He did the work in a day, repaired any holes in the Sheetrock so that it looks brand new and cleaned up after his work. I hired him to solve some other problems that other plumbers had given up on and he tackled the jobs. I will consider him my go to call whenever I need help on my house from now on!

Lazlo deserves even more stars! He is so professional, responsive, and downright nice. I hired him to correct another contractor's plumbing mistakes, and wish I had hired him to do the entire bathroom remodel.

The job could not have gone more perfect. My contractor cancelled last minute for a job that needed to be done before Christmas as it was a gift. I hired Al over the phone as I was desperate and he came over right away. I was extremely nervous and worried he may try and over charge due to the circumstances and my need for immediate assistance. He had no reviews for me to read and I have had a few bad experiences with contractors in the past. Al was polite, clean, neat and treated my home as if it was his own sweeping and vacuuming as he went along. I was only planning on having him do the hard labor and I was going to finish the rest on my own. Al was a very pleasant find and I will be referring him to anyone I know who needs a contractor. He did not over charge and went above and beyond to help finish the entire job for me.

Based on what I am going to say - one might think I am a friend of the contractor (Shawn) - let me assure you that I did not know Shawn before meeting him through Thumbtack asking him to come to my home to give me an estimate on finishing my basement. I have had horrible experiences with contractors in the past and sadly I expected this project to be no different. Much to my SHOCK it was an entirely different experience working with Shawn. For starters, I received 6 quotes on finishing my basement and Shawn had one of the lowest (fairest) price estimates. Two of my estimates were almost double the price of what Shawn's was. Shawn even suggested we frame the walls slightly differently since they were not load bearing and he checked with my township to make sure they would approve the slight difference and that alone saved me $1,000. Not one other contractor suggested this. Several contractors told me that my basement would take at least 3 months or so to finish and Shawn had it done - inspected and all in about 3 weeks of work time. He was always responsive to my emails/texts/calls to him, he showed up every single day that he said that he would and showed up on time (8 am). This even included showing up when it snowed and was below freezing weather. He worked a full day only taking a brief (sometimes only 30 mins) lunch (I've had other contractors who disappeared for hours during 'lunch'), and he cleaned up whatever mess he made as he was leaving each day - literally sweeping/mopping his way out of my front door. He was friendly, courteous, caring, professional - AND he did a fantastic job. My basement looks absolutely amazing. It was completely unfinished and its hard to believe that by looking at it now. I was so pleasantly surprised to have such a positive experience and pay a fair price and have my basement turn out amazing. I would recommend Shawn without any hesitation. He even noticed my tire was flat one day as he was entering my home and he filled it up with air for me. I truly can not say anything negative about the experience at all. Positive experience in every single way - and a great final product.

What a fantastic Contractor! We had 5 contractors come to look at our basement as it needed a new staircase, walls, ceiling, flooring and new electric. Out of the 5 George was the only one who a) turned up on time to quote and b) submitted his estimate when he said he was going to. That not only gave us a good indication of his reliability but also the estimate was really fair compared to some of the others The basement looks absolutely fantastic and we are so so pleased with the job that he has done for us. He was reliable, tidy, polite and also gave us some really good ideas for some areas we weren't sure what to do with. You won't go wrong hiring George I promise and look forward to having him back to do our attic as soon as we can afford it :-)

I had a terrible experience with my first contractor, so dealing with Erik was like a breath of fresh air. He showed up on TIME every day. He was reasonable in terms of prices, and he is a straight shooter. He does quality work, and if a mistake is made he takes responsibility and fixes it. If you call him, he almost always gets back to you right away. The other things that I really like about him that differentiates him from other contractors is that he does most of the work himself and he is HONEST. So if you're looking for a great contractor and great person to deal with, pick up the phone and call him NOW
