Angie N.

Carlos was absolutely amazing from start to finish! He is extremely knowledgable in this line of work and was very professional!

Logan L.

Eric did a GREAT job, there were tons of things going on at the house, and he needed very little direction but made sure everything was done exactly perfectly. I’d had surgery earlier in the week, and he helped me to move the heavier items that I was unable to. Everything is level, and perfectly measured out. All around great experience, will definitely hire again!

Grace M.

Wilfred was fantastic! I had a number of things I needed hung or screwed into the wall—shelves, pictures, a mirror, etc—and he was capable, helpful, and knowledgeable. I'd definitely work with him again.

Heidi V.

Chetan was great - hung a curtain rod, a tapestry and a number of pictures for me. When some of the plaster wall wasn’t holding, he was ready with the tools and the know-how to adapt!

David S.

We only needed 4 things hung on the wall. Very simple, but it took 3.5 hours. Besides that his work was good.

Kyle G.

Robert was on time and very professional. He got everything that I ask him to do done with great efficiency. Definitely recommend him to anyone that needs help!

Paul B.

Awesome work, thank you for all your advice and getting it just right. very happy with Ivan's service!

Carmen A.

Second time that Nelson has helped us around the apartment. He did an incredible job hanging some west elm floating shelves and anchoring them so we could store our very heavy books! Also hung a hub mirror, installed some hardware, and hung some art - all in a few hours. He is really cheerful and knows what he is doing - would absolutely recommend.

Connor F.

It wasn't an easy job. Really wasn't. 100 lb 60 inch tv needed to be hung on sheet rock. Our boy got it done and it's able to swing 180 degrees

Oliver S.

Fantastic service! Gary was superb. Both friendly and professional, I'd highly recommend him for any work
