    My partner and I have hired Floyd for a couple different projects. We were really pleased with Floyd's work. The latest project was concrete work outside our house. Not only did Floyd do a fabulous job, but he was trustworhty and punctual. We also thought he did a good job fixing our plumbing issues. We will definitely call Floyd when we have a new home fix-it issue.

    Thank You! I appreciate that and was glad I could coach you on your plumbing issue. In Minnesota you must be lisenced to do electrical and plumbing however, a home owner can generally do their own repairs.

    Floyd did some painting for me and some plaster repair. Phenomenal work! On time, courteous, and a hard worker. Final outcome was pleasant. I will be using Floyd again and again. I would recommend him over and over again. This guys stands by his work.

    I wish I could leave a good review. Yes I purchased a dealfind voucher to test out this service for ongoing service. It took months and several cancelations for Floyd to come out. I had read some of the bad reviews but was will ing to give him the benefit of the doubt especially when he told me he wanted to do right by me..When he did finally mohts later come out to do the job he did not have the right tools to do the work that I had informed him needed to be done. So we rescheduled an appointment for another date. I called and texted him several times for confirmation and none were returned even though his voice mail message states all calls will be returned. BS. This person has proved to be completely unreliable, unprepared and unprofessional. I would not recommend his service to anyone.

    Once again , a customer from dealfind that is unsatisfied. Unfortunately, this service is not a good fit for anyone. Let me see , this particular customer is typical of what I have experienced, Due to overbooking by dealclowns over 400 it is not possible for me to do them all. Not a good deal for a small business at all i.e demanding customers. customers missing appts, customers not having the right materials to complete the job, customer thinking you have not completed a coupon because they didnt have the right materials for the job. Customers getting refunds after you do the work. Customers wanting to trash your company because they thought you were going to do more than what 4 hours paid for. Customers angry when told to get a refund and want to trash you because they know they are getting something to good to be true. Cant by lunch for 39 dollars. Customers who only want the 4 hour not a penny extra , Dealfind is not a good fit for customers or companys. They over market take over half the money then refund customers who had the service. WISH i HAD NEVER HEARD OF DEALFIND. IF THERE IS A SCAM THEY ARE IT. I dont want customers that dont want to pay the going rate for services they will never be my kind of customer.

    Finding Floyd to help us with several projects around our new house was a blessing! It started with purchasing a deal find coupon. Floyd came out and was very courteous and laid back, yet a consumate professional and knowledgeable in all areas of handy man work. He repaired our fence in the back, and did a concrete job on the front steps. He kept us within budget and always had a positive attitude and smile on his face. You can really tell he enjoys the work, but even more so, finds it rewarding to help out and satisfy his clients. We will use him again, no doubt about it, and have recommended him to all our family and friends.

    I received a DealFind voucher for Floyd's services. He was 3 hours late for the first appointment and was a complete no-show for the first rescheduled appointment. I left three messages and emailed to confirm the date and time of the 2nd rescheduled appointment, and he's now more than 90 minutes late.

    It seems he did not anticipate the response to offering a voucher for his services and instead of showing up, is telling people to call and get their money back.

    I am very comfortable suggesting Floyd to anyone in need of general home repairs. As a Rental Landlord and owner of a previous foreclosure, I found myself with too big a To-Do List and called in Floyd for help. He helped me fence in a yard, finish a bathroom, and a couple other odd Fix-its that we noticed in the process.
    Floyd is great to work with. He always showed up (which is difficult to find in Contractors) frequently working sun-up to sun-down, with a great attitude. My largest job was over a holiday weekend that Floyd worked straight through to keep not only my job, but also his next jobs on schedule. He offered good solutions and was open to suggestions along the way.
    To top it off, the work he completed was of good quality. Both the fencing and the bathroom had quirks to them, with no "square corners" to work with. Both projects turned out great.
    Having worked with Floyd over the course of these projects, I can say he is a reputable, trustable Contractor who takes great pride in his work, his business and his customers' satisfaction.

    Floyd does excellent work. He painted the exterior of my large, 1900's -era house. He is so helpful and accomodating. Unlike other people who I have hired to work on my house, Floyd is an excellent communicator. He has very helpful suggestions. The work was completed in a very timely manner and it looks gorgeous. I will be recommending Floyd to all my friends and relatives!!

    Floyd was a no show for an appointment at my home. Not only was I disappointed that the necessary work went undone, but I also lost a day of vacation pay while waiting for him to show. I left voice messages throughout the day and never got a reply.

    Floyd M. from Floyd Mitchell Home Improvements replied to this review on September 3, 2012:

    Yes, this was for a dealfind coupon and they were overbooked. Please call dealfind for an immediate refund.

    I would absolutely recommend Floyd to anyone in need of a handyman! He is courteous, professional, easy to talk to, timely, 100% dedicated to his work, and just a genuine person overall. Within moments of talking to him you can sense his passion for helping others the best way he can. I love how he offered me affordable solutions to help me stay within my budget, while still getting the entire job done! He insulated/ventilated my attic, finished my bathroom, installed a window, hung a door in my basement, and even threw in a few freebees for smaller projects around my house! I'm in my 20's and this is my first home, so it was very important for me to find a worker I could trust not to rip me off or swindle me. Thank goodness I found Floyd!! I will never have to stress about finding a professional, trustworthy handyman ever again.

    Floyd is the new chief improvements guy at my duplex. I've found him to be determined, hardworking and - what's just as important to me - cheerful, flexible, and an excellent problem-solver. His wide experience in home maintenance and repairs is a huge advantage.

    Floyd has done extensive work and made repairs on my 100 year old house. He does a fabulous job. He has worked in my yard, on my decks, patio, and concrete sidewalks and driveway. He put up a fence for me. He did extensive landscaping work and has repaired my garage! Inside, he has done plaster repair, painting, general handyman jobs around the house, and is installing a bathroom in my basement, from the concrete floor, up!! Floyd has so much experience in all of these areas. Also, he is a very personable guy and I trust him, and his suggestions, implicitly. I can truly say that he knows his stuff!! Highly recommended!!
