Thumbtack - This company promise to hook you up with proffessionals, instead you get scam artists or contractors that are so bad they can't get any work .
I am a consumer that tried to use Thumbtack to hire services twice.Both experinces were horrible. The first one an "Electrician" that charged me $1800 and took a month to finish, his work failed 2 weeks later and turned out to be a fire hazard that I had to pay somebody else to re -do.
The last one, I hired somebody to power wash my driveway. I realized half through the job, that he was no proffessional contractor but just some guy without a job, that had no clue what he was doing. I paid him at the end of the first day the $400 he quoted me. He promised to come back the next day to finish. After finishing a very poorly done job. He told me I had to give him $300 more because his wife has thrown him out of the house so he needed more money. As a woman alone in a house I feard for my safety. I stood my ground and he left.
Thumbtack do not require proffesional Lincense nor a a full background check from the "contractors" .
As a consumer I WILL NEVER EVER USE THUMBTACK AGAIN. And I will tell all my Facebook friends.
