    Darren is a gem! We were so lucky to have him referred to us--he has a broad range of skills, is reasonably priced, does top quality work, and is polite and trustworthy. My husband, my daughter and I highly recommend him!

    I've use Darren Silva Handyman Services several times over the years. He does outstanding work!

    Darren has done several projects for me including re-building my backyard gate and reinforcing the fencing all around the yard. Darren did a great job on both projects. He takes pride in his work, is punctual, courteous and stays within his quoted price...NO surprises! I will continue to rely on Darren for my handyman needs.

    Darren has been called on emergencies and planned work and repairs. All have turned out as expected and better than expected. We are now working on a plan to add a dormer and long porch to our home.

    I am in eighties and disabled. Darren has fixed plumbing issues like toilet seals, installed new fixture in kitchen sink, and toilet flush handles. He cleaned and stained red wood deck off master bedroom and installed a step and hand rail on one side. He also built a yard waste container enclosure with trim. Plus he has done several jobs requiring a ladder. His work has always been top notch. He is good at cleaning up after a job and is polite and articulate in presenting his pre job guaranteed estimate.

    We have used Darren for years for many projects. However, some larger projects were leveling and reinforcing house foundation, remodel of kitchen, and replacement of main beam for suspended deck plus re-decking. We appreciate the quality of work he delivers.

    Darren was always punctual, very clean work, and understood that his work should look good as well as function. He did a backsplash and installed a new light in out kitchen. Both were completed timely and the workmanship is top rate. Will have him back!

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. This is very hard to answer because I am a handyman. The job I am doing now is a swap to an exterior tank-less water heater. That involves re-piping of both the gas and water lines and putting in a new circuit for the auto pilot light. I do so many different jobs from painting touch up to room conversions and everything in between. I love my work and enjoy meeting new customers. Many of my customers have become friends...to me that is a job well done.

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. 1. Tankless water heater system installation.
2. 200 Amp panel upgrade.
3. Whole house interior paint.
4. ADA certified bathroom grab bars
5. Termite damaged entry door and jamb replacement.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Its a great idea to ask for references, ask for more than one and ask if they have anyone that they performed the same type of work for. The more references a contractor can supply you the better the chance you have found someone reliable, trustworthy, and competent.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I give all I got...I have never, ever had an unsatisfied customer. I have lost money on jobs just to make sure that my customer is happy, that I believe is walking a mile in someone else's shoes. I do my best to listen, understand and replicate what a customer needs.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. Seeing my customers face light up when they come home. That is the greatest joy I can receive from my work.

Q. What are you currently working on improving?

A. I am currently a Superintendent for JMC Homes. All work from thumbtack is moonlighting. I love my job and I love my work.
