Seeking Oakland maintenance referrals

4 Replies

Are any Bay Area / Alameda property owners able to recommend a good maintenance person? The property is in Oakland. We own one property and just need a door lock installed so we won't use up all of your favorite person's time. Many thanks!

If you just need a lock installed, might as well ask a locksmith from yelp or thumbtack. It will be more pricey than a handyman but there wont be any issues with the handy man not having the parts or knowing the complexity. If this is just a basic schlage lock, you can probably do it with youtube :).

Thanks, Hayden! It's a little more complicated than that (might involve reinstalling the door so it swings open and closes freely), but thanks for the suggestion. We have Reed Brothers in our Rolodex and might see if they can help with the whole thing if we can't find a handyman. Thanks again!
