After a bit of a mix up on my end, he was able to help us with a bit of drilling into brick without any issue. Very kind and nice guy

Emily M.

Marcelo is amazing. He did a great job of all the challenges (shelves, shelves down, disassembling furniture, fixing things he saw on the way around the house at no extra cost) and even spent a minute reading my 3-year old a book she demanded he read. He is great, efficient and easy to have around. Highly recommend Marcelo.
