About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I give all I got...I have never, ever had an unsatisfied customer. I have lost money on jobs just to make sure that my customer is happy, that I believe is walking a mile in someone else's shoes. I do my best to listen, understand and replicate what a customer needs.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Seeing my customers face light up when they come home. That is the greatest joy I can receive from my work.

    Has many skills most handymen don't have. Works with quality in mind. Have known and used his services for many years.

    Darren is a gem! We were so lucky to have him referred to us--he has a broad range of skills, is reasonably priced, does top quality work, and is polite and trustworthy. My husband, my daughter and I highly recommend him!

  • Melodie S. Sep 29, 2014
    Darren has done several projects for me including re-building my backyard gate and reinforcing the fencing all around the yard. Darren did a great job on both projects. He takes pride in his work, is punctual, courteous and stays within his quoted price...NO surprises! I will continue to rely on Darren for my handyman needs.

    Darren has been called on emergencies and planned work and repairs. All have turned out as expected and better than expected. We are now working on a plan to add a dormer and long porch to our home.

    I am in eighties and disabled. Darren has fixed plumbing issues like toilet seals, installed new fixture in kitchen sink, and toilet flush handles. He cleaned and stained red wood deck off master bedroom and installed a step and hand rail on one side. He also built a yard waste container enclosure with trim. Plus he has done several jobs requiring a ladder. His work has always been top notch. He is good at cleaning up after a job and is polite and articulate in presenting his pre job guaranteed estimate.

    We have used Darren for years for many projects. However, some larger projects were leveling and reinforcing house foundation, remodel of kitchen, and replacement of main beam for suspended deck plus re-decking. We appreciate the quality of work he delivers.

    Darren was always punctual, very clean work, and understood that his work should look good as well as function. He did a backsplash and installed a new light in out kitchen. Both were completed timely and the workmanship is top rate. Will have him back!


What types of customers have you worked with?
This is very hard to answer because I am a handyman. The job I am doing now is a swap to an exterior tank-less water heater. That involves re-piping of both the gas and water lines and putting in a new circuit for the auto pilot light. I do so many different jobs from painting touch up to room conversions and everything in between. I love my work and enjoy meeting new customers. Many of my customers have become friends...to me that is a job well done.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Its a great idea to ask for references, ask for more than one and ask if they have anyone that they performed the same type of work for. The more references a contractor can supply you the better the chance you have found someone reliable, trustworthy, and competent.
