was great setting up a date to do the work. He helped me with the installation of vertical blinds in my condo. He did it quickly, was knowledgeable and friendly. He even was careful to wear booties in the house so that it wouldn't mess up the carpet. Overall a great experience with

did an excellent plumbing repair job for us. He gave us and estimate and explained what needed to be done. He arrived on-time and finished the job. I would definitely recommend him. I will use him again in the near future.

was prompt, professional and clean. What I liked best was that he told me how he was going to overcome the several unexpected problems (nothing to do with his work) that arose with my project and not just informing me. That is rare and I appreciated it. I'd highly recommend him.

I would like to share my experience with Case Remodeling. I hope it will help someone not to fail in to the same traps I did fail.
Basically the nice lady over the phone made me to believe that the job will be done in approximately 2 to 2.5 hours by 2
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. However it took 4 hours to complete. Here is how I got fooled by the nice voice over the phone. Make sure you don't do same mistakes.
Catch #1: The both products (I was planning to install) was purchased from Home Depot. Home depot provides installation estimates. After emailing the product links I have been told by Case Remodeling, that based on the links the job supposed to take 2 to 2.5 hours. Do not trust what they say. In reality they stretched this job to 4 hours. Just by clearly doing things very slow. I felt that
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's got instruction from they management to stretch this work to 4 hours and they did.
I recommend trying to work out estimate for the job without agreeing on hourly work. They will tell you that they do hourly work only. That is not true. Just getting hourly orders allow them fool people and charge them more than expected. If you insists on the estimating the job total they will do it.
Catch #2: If you agreed on hourly work anyway. They will tell you that they feel like 2
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
will do the work faster than 1
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. That is not true. In my case: One was staying and watching while another one was installing first awning. He could work on installation of the second awning at the same time. Then they both moved to installation of the second awning by the same manner: one is working, another one is watching. So basically I was double charged for awning installation.
Do not agree on a second
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. You better get one and give him a hand when he needs. Over the phone they will say that they have some liability and
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
can't accept your help. That is not true. I offered help to
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
for turning canopy around. And guess what?…. he accepted it.
Catch #3: Do not assume a
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
will have every single screw or nail you need. In my case they suddenly realized they don't have appropriate screw to anchor my canopy to concrete (By the way I told them over phone about installing over concrete). Then one drove to store to buy the screws another one just was hanging around. Guess what. It took 40 minutes for
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to come back and they charged for 40 minutes for both
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's.
I recommend checking all the things and get them ready. Once
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
comes in, spend few minutes to go over with
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and make sure he has all he needs. Worth case you can run to store by yourself and bring missing things in mean time. I was fool enough to let them complete both jobs and then one drives to store and another one hangs around.
This is how they manage to overcharge people.
Good luck!

is great and I will call him again for maintenance purposes. This time we had the wheels on our sliding screen door replaced, a toilet paper holder replaced, and two light fixtures installed. The interaction with

He talked more then worked. He brought someone to do the work while he just talked about irrelevant issues. He charged for both their time. I finally had him stop the work. The cost was continuing the work was not.

The final result is excellent. They
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
us through hundreds of decisions. My better half was responsible for making choices and she is very happy with the final result. Once demolition began, the work was tightly scheduled Monday through Thursday, with Fridays reserved for absorbing unknowns. I am very impressed with their tile
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. The rest of their subcontractors rank "excellent" too, but the tile
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
take top prize. I am disappointed with their estimating process pre-contract, as the final cost was slightly more than 25% in excess of original estimated range, despite minimal change orders. On the one hand I can't figure out what wasn't expressed in the original conversations to warrant such a low original cost range; on the other, the final cost is not out of line for the scope and quality of work and materials of such an extensive rebuild in the Bay Area, especially considering the "priority" scheduling that resulted in minimal inconvenience. I do recommend them to family and friends that want quality results.

I was very pleased with his work and the work of his brother who assisted on the second day. They are both very knowledgeable, professional and very hard workers. My husband and I plan on hiring him again to do more jobs on our house.

Handyman arrived on time. The job should have taken 2 - 4 hours. Instead, the worker was in our home for 7-1/2 hours. The installer was not experienced in this task. There were numerous mishaps. The installer was at our house for 2.5 hours before he put a screw in a cabinet. He cut the counter top 7 times to get it to fit. It still doesn't fit correctly. He was tapping on the wall to find a stud. I asked if he needed a stud finder. He said no, he had one in the truck. He then started drilling holes in the wall to find studs. I have 15 holes in the wall behind my cabinet that he drilled. It got to the point that I told him that I would put the pulls and soft close on myself. He spent about 30 minutes trying to figure out how to put the skin on the bottom of the cabinet and I told him to forget it, that I would take care of it. We indicated that we would use
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
again because
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
took immediate action to "fix" this situation. We were very impressed with how he handled this. Based on that, if we have another job we will contact

for an estimate.
