Introduction: When it comes to my work, there are three main objectives for every project I undertake: Satisfied customers, great reviews, and repeat business. My strategy to meet these objectives involves quality work, a client centered focus, flexibility and fluidity to meet client needs, clear communication, and transparency in pricing. I will do all I can to do the job you need at the price you can afford. I do not purport to know anyone's financial situation and I invite all clients to suggest a price they are comfortable paying for the work they require to be done well. If I can meet them at their price, I will do so. I take pride in my work, enjoy helping others, and look forward to working for you.

J was able to show up with being able to assemble a wire stack storage and multiple baby furniture that met all expectations. I would recommend his services when looking for a handyman.

Jeff showed up prepared for the job and was very friendly. My task was installing running boards on my Jeep, and he did a great job! He got the job done a bit quicker than the assembly instructions said, he didn’t dilly-dally! Jeff was very responsive in regards to arranging the date and time for my task. I will definitely use him for future tasks.

Jeff Strauss arrived on time conducted himself in a completely professional manner and preformed top notch work. Not only would I be happy to have him work for me again but I would recommend him as well. I myself am a retired carpenter and if I was still in the business I would be pleased to have him on my crew

The project turned out to be at least 2 or 3 times more complicated than we both expected. J was very patient and tried different ways to get get the job done, and only charged me the agreed upon price. I really appreciate the hard work and definitely will recommend without hesitation.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I invite all my customers to suggest the price they would feel comfortable paying for the completion of the job for which they are hiring. I do not purport to know anybody's financial situation but believe everyone is entitled to quality work at a fair price; I will do what I can to meet them at that price. I won't attempt to charge more than what is agreed upon and there will be no surprise charges or fees. I consider my word binding and aim to leave customers satisfied with the work I do and the price they pay. I have a price ceiling for gas dryer ducts, new install or removal and replacement, $499 includes parts and labor. Low enough to not require a permit provided it is not a part of a larger project. The price can be lower than that, but will not be higher.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Find out the specifics of the job. Ask for clarification if any is needed. Schedule. Complete work.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Began doing work for those that I already knew personally. I've always enjoyed fixing and building things and this branched out into an occupation. As luck would have it, I really enjoy helping people and have developed a policy of being "unreasonably reasonable".
