Jody helped us with put in a new kitchen faucet and found out also that the system was clogged. He took care of all of it and made sure all was working. He also took care of some electrical outlets that were not working and fixed them as well. He did a thorough job and we are very pleased, he was great and I would hire him again in a minute. Thank you Jody!!!

Services provided were electrical in nature: change all light switches & outlet plugs; install new closet light; install new basement lights on existing circuit; install new dedicated light switch for additional kitchen light and so on. Additionally, he helped repair and re-install door handles and locks in a 2925 craftsman bungalow. Work was done professionally, methodically and efficiently. Prompt, good communication and a pleasure to work with. Will use again for future projects

I had a great experience with Yazek. I spoke with him yesterday he met me at 9am this morning and went right to work. Installed 3 bathroom faucets, 1 wall light and a couple smoke detectors. He also replaced some old plumbing stuff under the sink. Very professional and honest. Thank you! Andy

Our beautiful finished basement flooded twice in 48 hours during successive record breaking torrential rainstorms. My husband and I (not young people) were a tag team all day and night, taking turns with a borrowed wet vac, trying to keep up as gallons of water gushed in. We hauled books, artwork, and electronics up in shopping bags to the first floor. Turns out the sump pump had quit! The restoration company we had hired to help with the dry out had no plumbers on staff and couldn't do anything to help until water stopped coming. We had a break in the weather with more rain on the way. We put out a call via Thumbtack and got a quick response from Glenn, who sent out plumber Joe within a couple of hours. Joe was great: kind and friendly and efficient. He replaced the sump pump, the water stopped coming in, and we pretty much went to bed and slept round the clock. Glenn and Joe are our heroes! Joe says they do all sorts of handyman projects- not just plumbing. We will hire them again.

I was hesitant to try thumbtack and even more so when I received just one bid for my request - 'need electrical.' I hired Glenn anyway because I didn't know what else to do, and I was so impressed. He charged significantly cheaper than what I imagined his services would cost, and although he stayed an hour over his estimated time, he didn't charge me any more. In addition, he did lots of work that I didn't outline in my request, including hauling a bunch of stuff away. I really could not be more pleased and will never look for another handyman. We are having Glenn back for all our future handy man needs! And one more thing, he was incredibly versatile - he took care of not only electrical things for us, but also plumbing, wall patching, tearing down various and sundry annoyances. Glenn's services are really 5 star! And he's a very nice guy to boot :)

I had a list of many different projects for Corey to do...fix a leaking faucet and the stopper in the bathroom; a leaking sprayer on the kitchen faucet; re-caulked our shower/shower door; put up a new gutter on the deck roof. He showed up right on time, helped us save $$ on parts, completed all the projects I had for him and was just an all-around nice guy. I wouldn't hesitate to have him back for any future handyman projects.

Chris was fantastic! I had several questions before starting the project and he was very responsive in the days leading up to the work. On the day he came (on time!) he installed a ceiling fan for us , a dimmer switch in another room and replaced 4 lighting fixtures around the house... all in a surprisingly short amount of time. He was knowledgeable, efficient, affordable, prompt and friendly -- everything one could hope for in a handyman. He even let me watch him work (I'm interested in learning how to do some of this myself) and was very gracious about me asking him lots of questions. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again for electrical work and would definitely consider him for other projects (he said he used to be a painter, for example, and later worked on homes that needed absolutely everything replaced, so he seems to have lots of experience fixing/installing/replacing). I read all his negative reviews, but thought he had reasonable responses and I'm so glad we hired him for this job. We will certainly use him again in the future!

I went with Compass as Chris was able to give me a time to replace my garbage disposal unit. He was thoughtful to say there was a traffic delay and still make it with a few minutes. After the installation, Chris took a look at another plumbing problem with a shower faucet and we made plans to repair that at a later date. Call him if you're in need of most household repairs.

Chris was polite, professional, and was able to come out and uninstall/install our dishwasher with only 3 days notice and was on time and did a great job. We will be hiring again for other handyman jobs. Mark

Edward showed up with a smile and promptly as scheduled. He not only took on the small plumbing repair project I hired him for, but he also fixed 3 additional problems I had in my home during his brief visit, and at an amazingly reasonable price! He took the time to explain the steps of each fix to me, diagnosed and repaired each issue quickly, and was patient while doing so, all with an upbeat attitude. Highest praise for Dass Maintenance and Edward. I'd give him lots more stars if I could. THANK YOU!

Scott was, in a word, fantastic. He was very flexible to accommodate my schedule and showed up promptly. He listened carefully to the list of things I needed done (glass front bookcase assembly, curtain rod installation, lighting and plumbing odds and ends). He worked efficiently but with great attention to detail. He even helped me hang the curtains, which was above and beyond! He’ll be my go to handyman for future jobs!

Scott was the perfect "get 'er done" handyman. He just came over and I threw a bunch of different tasks- including a pesky million part ikea wire thing- at him, and he approached each mini project with expertise and care. It was such a productive morning- He even mounted a giant TV in my apartment! We already have discussed what we are going to do at our next appointment. Woohoo!

FANTASTIC! Scott is the most responsive and easy to work with contractor. He sets a fair price upfront. He showed up on time without hassle. He was efficient and provided great quality work. He checked every part and even offered to go to a hardware store if any new parts were required. You cannot find a stand-up guy like this anywhere else. I will definitely hire him again

This man listens. You ask questions...you get good, honest answers. Don can do the jobs how you want them done. If you'd like to know any additional ways to accomplish your jobs, he has the knowledge, details, solutions to support that, also. Don's prices are great, fair, reasonable. 1) He put a post w/base in to support my bowed in the middle "semi-sagging" cross beam of the patio roof. 2) Don stabilized my attic fan to stop its vibrating noise & possible motor damage. He put a screen over it on the inside of the attic for safety to prevent little fingers from getting in. 3) He poured concrete. 4) Don moved furniture. He's got the tape measure & the level ready. Hey...and guess what? I hired Don to come back tomorrow to work on my other projects! I'm glad he could put me in on his schedule.

We had Gavin do a variety of items (reconnect a bathroom vanity, hang a mirror, install bathroom items, install closet door guides, vertical blinds in the dining room, reconnect the kitchen sink, reconnect an electric cooktop and install smoke/carbon monoxide detectors). He was a great communicator before he arrived to verify the time he needed to arrive (had to coordinate with a countertop installer and carpet shampoo company). He arrived on time, very personable and asked if there was any additional work. Gavin is very nice and performed everything on our list without hesitation.

Roman basically transformed our entire house! He painted every room inside (walls and ceilings) and the outside trim, as well as fitting in some roof maintenance at the same time. He put in new flooring in each of the bathrooms, along with toilets, vanities, and new light fixtures. He painted and installed baseboards thoughout the ground floor, including some quality touches where the edges were rounded. When we moved to the kitchen, he installed each of our appliances (including mounting the new sink under the countertop). What was turning into an incredible (and expensive) headache when we were trying to set up a purchase of granite countertop ourselves was eased when Roman helped coordinate the purchase from quote to destruction and cleanup of the old formica counters to installation and fitting of the new. I could probably go on to describe other quality touches but the bottom line is this. Roman understood our goal was to prepare the house for sale, and advised us what we should and shouldn't do to maximize our investment. He could have made more money off us, but was clearly concerned with our getting the most bang for our buck. The cost was reasonable and the bonus: he is one of the most detail-oriented people I have seen. And a nice person too. By the time most people have finished with their contractor, there is usually a negative relationship because of dissatisfaction with the work, the pace, and/or the quality. Didn't happen with Roman.

Roman has done several projects for us over the past year. He built a beautiful deck and did most of our remodel all by himself! He basically had to rebuild all the walls on the back of our house due to dry rot damage and remove and replace several windows. He laid laminate flooring, painted our bathrooms, installed shower doors and new plumbing fixtures. He also replaced a couple of ceiling light fixtures. He offered opinions that were money saving also and stayed within the estimate so we weren't surprised in the end. He continues to be there sometimes next day if I need something else done. He is even going to work on my RV inside today repairing counters! One more thing...he actually shows up on time and communicates his schedule!

Roman did several things that I needed a handyman to do and he did them pefectly and RIGHT. He did them efficiently and he charged a fair price. I enjoyed very much working with him and I have him slated to do more work for me as his time and my time permit in the near future! Definitely hire him again anytime, hes gonna be my "go to" guy for any jobs that I have for my home.
