"If you see a spot of mold in your bathroom, just wipe it clean with a warm rag after your shower. The warm temperature makes it easy to remove—no need for bleach!"

There are few renovation and maintenance tasks that Jose Rivera can't handle. He is an exceptional woodworker. The redwood gate he built for my mother-in-law showed the highest level of craftsmanship, but we've hired him for metalworking, painting, concrete work and other tasks. We've appreciated Jose's guidance for projects, particularly his unwillingness to compromise on the quality of materials. He is polite, professional and understands the importance of communicating carefully and regularly.

Jose did a lot of work for me as a handyman. He is good at listening to what we want and has a high quality of work. He always answers texts and phone calls. A lot of people don't! Jose’s pricing is a bit on the high side, but I would rather pay a little more to have the job done correctly. I would recommend him to anyone needing a general handyman. We hired him to work at my daughter’s house, too. He can do most everything!

Jose has been my go-to handyman for over a year now. I had checked out a couple of different handymen and got a good vibe from Jose and he had decent pricing, too. He’s done a variety of different projects for me and all has gone well. Jose is a very good handyman who is diligent about his work. He is responsive, follows the schedule and communicates if there’s a delay. If unforeseen obstacles arise during a project, Jose can figure it out and work towards a solution. I trust him and leave him to work even while I’m not at home. I’ve recommended him a lot and will continue to do so.

I have hired Jose over the last two years for both a large-scale remodel on a house I sold and for various projects at my current residence. He speaks English well, has a great attitude, is very polite, shows up on time and won’t flake. Jose is dependable and his work is top-notch. I’m pretty handy myself, but Jose comes up with lots of solutions to problems. That’s due to his vast experience over the last 20 years, seeing many different jobs and situations. His solutions can be very creative. For example, we had dozens of cracks in the plaster-and-lath walls of our 1923 house. Jose didn’t just plaster over them, but first filled the cracks with “Liquid Nails” construction adhesive. Eighteen months later, no cracks re-opened. He can handle many jobs—framing, hanging doors, foundation work, concrete sidewalks, electrical work, ceiling fans, plumbing, ceramic & vinyl tile, gas-work, fireplaces—you name it. Jose is trustworthy, dependable and conscientious. He tells you what materials you’re going to need for a project and will send pictures of items to help you get exactly the right part at Lowe’s or Home Depot. He sticks to the budget and prices out jobs by the task, not some hazy, overall project bid. Thus, it’s clear what you are paying for. I recommend Jose highly and he’s done work for my neighbors, too. Do note that he’s often busy on weekends as a family man and a lay minister at his church. If you are looking for a stellar, can-do-it-all handyman, Jose Rivera is the perfect choice.

Jose is a responsible professional and reasonably costed handyman. He speaks English fluently. He has the tools necessary and the skills. We used him to renovate a few apartments for us—plumbing, electrical, drywall, paint—he's very good in all these areas.
