Molding or baseboards,
Jim was great. Friendly, reliable, does quality work and his fees are very reasonable. He replaced light bulbs inside and out, repaired toilet roll and Roman tub wand holders, and we have some other projects coming up. Jim will be our go to in the future for all of our handyman projects. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for a handyman.Apr 28, 2019Verified
I stumbled on Jim using thumbtack. He’s super responsive and very warm/friendly. He had my 3 projects done in great time and they look great. I am very impressed. I’d highly recommend jim for any of your handyman to do lists/projects around the house.Aug 1, 2018Verified
Jim was so great to work with, he put together our new patio furniture set and table. He responded to messages and questions almost immediately, showed up early and got the job done right. I'm so glad to have found a handyman!Apr 23, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I usually charge for the hour at $35 per hour. There are some jobs, particularly in furniture assembly that take a good deal of time, and charging per hour becomes unreasonably expensive. In those cases I work out a per piece of furniture price with the client before proceeding. I do not mark up the price of materials that I buy for the client, even if I get a contractor's discount on the purchase. I do not charge for drive time to and from the site, nor do I charge for time spent researching the project. All on site estimates are free of charge.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When I submit an estimate I try explain in detail how I arrived at that estimate and how unforeseen issues on the job might impact the estimate. Once my estimate has been accepted I work with my client to determine the best day and time for me to do the job. I use email, text and telephone to stay in close contact with the client until the job is complete. On the job, I take a moment to explain what I am doing, what materials I am using and answer any questions or concerns that my client might have.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a college degree and thirty eight years of experience in management for a large national bank. This background allows me to be able to understand my clients' needs and concerns and it gives me the ability to clearly answer my clients' questions. I have thirty five years experience in handy man work and have built a large bedroom, two bathrooms, a workshop and a wood storage shed for myself and have been doing handyman/maintenance work as a hobbyist for friends and family for years.
