We had some projects we needed done around our home. We haven’t had much luck with handymen. I saw a posting from Heather on Nextdoor recommending Tom Boone of Know It All Handyman, 925.255.7626. Her projects were more complex than mine. I decided to give Tom a call.
I’m really glad I did. He came to review the job. He gave us a reasonable estimate.
On the day of the job, he arrived on time. Worked through our punch list with care & precision. We are very happy with the outcome & are working on itemizing a couple more projects. I highly recommend Tom Boone if Know it All Handyman. (March, 2023)
Handyman Gifford Teeple did our bathtub re-caulking job (he's on the list). He is slow, methodical, does nice work (patched grout in places he noticed could use it), price is on the high side. He's looking for more work at the condos.

I met this gentleman when he came to help install my new dishwasher. Please add him to your list.

I was fortunate to find a wonderful general contractor to repair major flooding damages to my BYL condo, and want to highly recommend this company, M3. They worked beautifully with my insurance company, handled every detail, made great suggestions, stayed in communication with me throughout the whole process, and did the actual repair work straight through in one week! (It took several weeks before that phase to handle all the other details not related to M3.)
Contact: Janet Mejia at 925-306-9906 . She is project manager/estimator and very knowledgeable about construction and resources. (September, 2021)

I usually like to recommend people/workers when a job is well-done.However, I want to warn people away from a Handyman/carpenter/not a contractor person whose name is Curt Rocca. He does a lot of work here & there in BYL and I know of one woman whose bathroom he totally did such a poor job, she had to pay to have it redone by someone else (double expense).
He has been stringing me a long for well over a year ! He recommends small jobs at our unit, starts them, then does NOT come back to finish the job.
He constantly tells me he will be over at a certain day & time, then does NOT show up, and only occasionally calls to cancel & reschedule and then does the same thing again & again. It has been such a struggle with Curt Rocca, although over all he is actually a nice man but NOT a reliable or responsible person, whatsoever.
Now, he did someones kitchen here at BYL, a big job, and it looks nice but this person said he paid Curt a lot of money up front before the job started.
My jobs here are very small and Curt Rocca never asks up front for those, just starts the job, then leaves it incomplete. I just want to warn people that I now consider him a "Pathological Liar". Please note I do not say these things lightly. I am so frustrated with him. We have one unfinished job in our kitchen so it is the first thing I see as I walk in the door.
I know people want recommendations but also I have read on your site about plumbers or electrical people who did a very poor job. It is not that Curt's work is poor, it is okay, (not great, or good), but it just does not get finished! Thanks for your attention. I've been meaning to write this for a long time, even told Curt if he did not finish the current job, I would be writing him up & posting this critique, and he said "No, don't do that, I'll finish the job"....that was at least 4 months ago.

Tony Carr is now doing handyman work here in Brickyard Landing.
His number is 510.207.9642.
He is very reliable!! (May, 2018)
We've used Gifford Teeple, owner of A Reliable Handyman, to do a number of jobs for us since we moved here last May. He caulked our bathtub, shower, and sinks; mounted the flatscreen TV, various shelves, two large mirrors, IKEA wall cabinets; patched walls and painted.
He also did a number of jobs for us at our old place: leveled a stone countertop, planed sticking doors, patched and painted cracks that appeared after an earthquake, replaced the side door to the garage, caulked sinks and tubs.
He is conscientious, hardworking, and does excellent work.
The best way to reach him is by phone: 510-517-6533. His email is: ReliableGT@gmail.com. (March, 2017)
I would like to recommend an excellent handyman who came to my unit at Brickyard Landing yesterday and helped me with numerous tasks (from repairing a closet shelf to fixing a broken Lazy Boy recliner chair, to plant trimming!). His name and contact information follows. He charges $65 per hour and is worth every penny of it!! (December, 2016)
Jonathan Amato, Handyman
I wanted to recommend Curt Rocca. He did my entire remodel - electrical, plumbing, installed floors, cabinets and tile. His work is great and his prices are very reasonable. I thought you might want to include him under General or Contractor. His phone # is 510-701-5566. (November, 2016)
