About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I provide a wealth of services. Whether it's a simple clogged sink or a complete bathroom remodel. Inside or out I'm what you would consider a one stop shop handyman. I can install fencing, or replace your gutters that have seen better days. I can install your home theater, or even weld your bumper back onto your car. My estimates are always free, and I am available 7 days a week, 24 hrs a day. If you need me at 2 am. to fix a busted pipe, I'll be there. I stand behind my work. If you have a problem with something I installed or fixed I will do whatever it takes to correct the problem free of charge. I served in the Marines for 8 years and it's the "can do" attitude they instilled in me that make me good at figuring things out and solving problems. I strive to do the very best job, on every single job. It's time for your job to be the next "best job I've done."

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I absolutely love being a handyman, and working for myself. I like a good challenge, and every job has its own unique difficulties. Most importantly I love making people happy. That's why I enjoy doing this so much. To be challenged and provide a service for someone and meeting all the expectations.

    Tim did a great job on our garage door replacing rotten wood. Sealing, painting and even replaced the light above the garage door which now works for the first time in months. He is a creative problem solver with an engineering focus to doing the job right. I look forward to contracting with Tim again on all my home projects.

    Phenomenal work!
    Tim did a fantastic job putting together my end table and coffee table. It was done so well and so quickly, that I hired him a few days later to put my desk together. It's a huge desk with many parts, but he came late and worked diligently for several hours to ensure a good job. Not only is it sturdy but also well put together. You cannot beat the price and quality of service you're getting with Tim. Whenever I have any household needs, Tim is the only person I will call so that I can ensure that it's done right!

    Dishwasher replacement
    Tim arrived early and on a Sunday to accommodate my busy schedule. He was professional, courteous and very knowledgeable. He removed a piece of crap my landlord called a dishwasher and installed a new one. In this one job he had electrical, plumbing and handyman duties. Tim shows concern for protecting your property and doesn't leave a mess. His price was very fair. I would recommend Tim to anyone and will use his services again. Awesome!!!

    Tim did a fantastic job. He removed solid wood cabinets above the fridge that had been installed in a unconventional way. Nailed securely into wood paneling. He did it with no damage at all to the wall. He was friendly, on time, and very knowledgeable. He even offered me information and ways to finish the wall behind the cabinets. I am overly please with the work and will be having him out to do other jobs around my house.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I began as a do it yourselfer. I bought my first home when I was 23 and gutted the bathroom the first month. I taught myself how to sweat copper, and lay tile. I've been taking care of a couple houses for the past 6 or 7 years. Doing general maintenance to installing fences. I've always been the one that my family calls when they need something fixed around their house. I just recently made the decision to do this full time as my occupation. One of the terrifyingly best decisions of my life.
