    Marvin is great!
    Marvin is great. He has helped us with several projects including: He built a beautiful kitchen cabinet for us. Literally built from scratch! Fixed all our door and gate problems (we had several doors that would not close or would not lock). We recently asked him to come back and help us with other projects including creating a mudroom space and mounting our TV to the wall.

    Everything I was hoping for and more!
    Another 5-star review for Marvin. He installed a beautiful old leaded glass front door into the existing entryway of my home. To fit in the spot, the door needed thin wood borders added, filling in where the old hardware used to be, sanding, staining, and the new hardware installed. And the existing threshold where it was to be installed was not exactly straight. This took finesse, and Marvin did an excellent job and made it look easy when I don't think it really was. And he did it all with a calm, confident and patient demeanor. It makes me happy every time I look at that door! He said he'll be back in the spring to finish the staining, since 20 degree weather is not the best time to do that. He also took the time to show me how to adjust a toilet so it would quit running. I am so glad I finally found someone who is skilled and dependable that I can call on for future projects.

    Outstanding, Professional, Handyman
    My goodness I don't know where to start. Marvin is awesome. He contacted me within hours of my post. He was out the very next morning. At the time he said he would be there. Which is very important to me because me and my husband work. And we have to schedule time. We have had a terrible experience with somebody on this site showing up late and stretching out a three-day project now to about 20 days. So he was a breath of fresh air. He came in assessed the job and said I will have this done by today. Which he did indeed! Thank You Marvin it looks great! We are looking forward to working with you on future projects. Hire him quickly if he reaches out to you.

    Dependable & Reliable Handyman......
    I needed some interior trim work done before my painters were ready to come in and an exterior door hung for my shop, Marvin was able to come out and get the work done in a timely manner and did an outstanding job, his trim work is very precise & professional & the door on my shop looks great. I will be bringing Marvin back for other small tasks as he is very dependable and reliable. Thanks Marvin.

    Door Installation
    I needed a door cut down and installed at the bottom of a stair - and I wanted someone who could do the whole project, including frame and hang it, trim, painting, relocating a handrail, etc. Marvin came out to give an estimate and then came back 2 days later and completed the whole project in less time than I'd expected. Looks great and is just as I asked. He was on time, great communication, and overall just a really nice, pleasant, and competent person. I would definitely hire him again for another project.

    Outstanding Craftsman, Trustworthy and very reasonably priced!
    We could not be happier with Marvin and his work! We hired him for 3 projects: 1) Install bath fan - completed perfectly and with ease! 2) Complete assembly of a sit/stand desk - also completed perfectly and with ease. 3) The major project, fixing a wood rot problem at our front door threshold. We live in a Manufactured Home and they built it with a horrible design at the front door/bay window area. This took the skills of an artist, metal worker and carpenter. We cannot believe we found 1 person with all those skills! He had to design the whole thing and it was VERY complicated and unusual. We could not be happier with the result. No more water problems! We will be hiring Marvin for MANY more projects!

    We had an exceptional experience with Marvin. We had ordered a custom front door slab for our Mid-Century restoration home and needed someone to cut it to size and install all the hardware as soon as possible. Marvin came out the very same afternoon I contacted him on Thumbtack and squeezed us in between his other jobs since he had a little free time. He did an outstanding job, and for a very reasonable price. Marvin is a perfectionist and true craftsman, and I would highly recommend Marvin to anyone wanting great quality work done with excellence, especially if you are looking for something unique or custom crafted for your home.

    Stated quote went up however Marvin was very professional and offered to come back if there was any problems.
    Marvin G. Jan 2, 2017

    Yes I went up on the amount because the trim was pre-cut by the homeowner. When it came time to install the trim I realized that the cuts were not accurate. So I had to take my time to recut 90% of the project. The process of recutting added hours to the job. I believe I only increased the job by $50 which was a very modest increase compared to the additional time.

    Marvin responded quickly to our request. His work was exceptional. The door we had replaced was a non-standard size. He took the time to cut down the door to make sure it fit properly. We would definitely hire him again.

    Marvin did a great job and was willing to make adjustments based on the materials I had on hand. He built up and installed two exterior doors from scratch (frame,lock holes, hinges, thresholds). He even installed a dog door in one of the exterior doors. In addition, he put in sheetrock around an unfinished window in my basement. My wife and I were very happy with the results and are already thinking of some other projects around the house we'd like to hire him for.

    Marvin was on time and was very helpful in suggestions and did a fantastic job. I had him wrap and trim out five windows, two entry ways and a sliding glass door. His work was top quality and his work ethic was amazing. He stayed on task and stayed late into the evening to finish the job. We ended up hiring him for another job because we were impressed with the work he did.

    Marvin was awesome. I hired him to do a variety of jobs for me in my house. From working on my roof to inside the house patching up a closet and replacing a basement window and securing a new lock on my door. He is reliable, focused and his work is good and he is a very nice man. I would recommend Marvin to my friends and family and I will hire him again for some more future projects.

    Marvin was a genius! We did not expect such complex instructions when we ordered our dresser. In an amazingly short time it was all done & in place. He's obviously wonderful at assembly and was efficient & friendly. Would definitely recommend him for any job. We're very pleased.
