Molding or baseboards,
Kirsten was great with scheduling. She was able to make adjustments to the ARC schedule so that Dan could spend a whole day with me. Dan was very professional and thorough. I needed him to re-grout a tub I found to be particularly difficult. He handled the job with ease. He was attentive to my needs, and he offered insight into some other potential issues in a very non-sales manner. I also had Dan take care of some smaller tasks around the house and then one larger project: installing a handrail along my stairs. Unfortunately, Dan did not have enough time to complete the handrail job the way I needed it to be done; but he and Kirsten worked finishing the job into the schedule within two weeks time. When he came back, I was even more impressed with his thoroughness, as he went back to improve on his first pass at the project. I would most definitely recommend ARC Handyman to others.May 29, 2017VerifiedARC Handyman Services's reply
Dear Tim, Thank you for letting us into your home. Making it ready for the next family was as important to us as it was to you! We look forward to working with you on future projects. Kindly, Danny & Kirsten Lieder
I took day off for the clean up and ARC showed up with with a truck that was not suited to the job, (too small) so my wife and I rented a trash trailer and had to do the job ourselves. Maybe good at handyman service but I wouldn't know.Oct 14, 2016VerifiedARC Handyman Services's reply
Hello Jeff, I'm sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused you. There was a breakdown in communication between my office and myself and for that I apologize. This issue has been corrected so that moving forward this mistake will not be made again. I hope we can earn your business in the future. Danny Lieder
Danny is amazing! Prompt, efficient and has skills like no other handyman. We have had him fix doors, windows, plumbing, electrical, walls, and, without fail, he manages to make the repairs in a professional manner. I highly recommend him.Jan 16, 2016Verified
Plumbing Drain Repair
ARC Handyman Services (Danny) has made me so happy! My expectations were greatly exceeded! I had a complex plumbing problem in my 35-year-old mobile home. I was afraid that a plumber might have to work all day and still not be able to figure out why hot water was coming out of my cold water faucet, the toilet tank, and the outside hose nozzle. All of the above were dripping water at an increasing rate as time went by, even when the water was "shut off" at the valve outside. Danny went out of his way to schedule the extra time he thought he might need to complete the work before things got much worse. He and the staff of ARC Handyman Services are excellent communicators. I was so worried, but Kirsten in the office explained to me that Danny was really smart and that she didn't know of anything yet that he couldn't fix. In my case this turned out to be so true! Danny arrived at the expected time, smiling, friendly, and prepared with a truck full of tools and supplies. He looked things over, asked me a few questions, and had the whole problem figured out and fixed so quickly that he also was able to take care of TWO (!) other projects I'd been waiting to fix: 1) He used the kit I already had and replaced all the parts in my toilet tank, and 2) he fixed two hanging ceiling lights that previously would not turn on with the light switch. Wow! I'm not just impressed... I am ecstatic and amazed! He fixed THREE of my most aggravating maintenance problems in 2-1/2 hours, which was just barely over the minimum he charges to come out. I got three projects fixed for less than I was expecting to pay for one project! I think that Danny's knowledge, skill, and speed make his hourly rates the best value in town. I'll definitely be calling ARC Handyman Services for more projects in the future: replace fence, rebuild steps, repair floor, power wash exterior, etc. I'm so relieved now, and happy! Many thanks to ARC Handyman Services!Dec 17, 2016VerifiedARC Handyman Services's reply

I've been looking for an honest competent handyman for 2 years since I bought my condo in Santa Barbara. ARC handyman services has been the answer to my search. Dan is capable to do anything that needs attention. I'm so happy to have found them!! Would highly recommend their services. His wife is fabulous on the phone setting up appointments and keeping track of the business end of things. 5 stars for sure! CathyJul 7, 2017ARC Handyman Services's reply
Dear Cathy, Thank you for letting us help you with your home improvement repairs. We look forward to working with you in the future. Thank you. Kindly, Danny & Kirsten Lieder
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We have a minimum charge of $195 for the first 2 hours then drop our rate to $75 per hour there after.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After many years of people telling me how talented I was on so many different subjects, I decided to become a home improvement specialist and I'm glad I did. I love my work. I enjoy the people I meet and its satisfying at the end of the day to say I built that or I fixed that.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I do a variety of work for my clients but probably the most common work I do is related to plumbing or painting.
