Dawson did a fantastic job, and followed up with additional information that I requested.Apr 24, 2018Verified
Dawson was very prompt in returning phone calls as well as arriving for work. He did a great job installing 2 toilets for me and removing the old ones. He left my bathrooms very neat and tidy upon completion. I would definitely call him again for handyman services.Nov 16, 2017Verified
Dawson has a wealth of knowledge and experience--he was able to check off every item on our long list. He went the extra step in researching problems and finding creative, cost-saving solutions. Dawson will definitely be our go-to person from now on--plus, you can't beat his price!!Aug 16, 2017VerifiedNeedham Construction's reply
Hi Shay Thank you so much for the excellent review. I really appreciate it! I dropped the chair base off at Precision Machine for welding. Their address is 3681 Sacramento Dr, #2 ·(805) 544-5694. The owner is Pablo. He should call me when the chair is ready for pick up. When you go to pick up the chair base, I suggest you take the other half of the chair with you, minus the cushions and go see Pam at Full Spectrum powder coating. They are in the same complex within walking distance. Pablo can direct you to them. And Pam can give you a estimate on powder coating and give you some color options. I will give you a call when I hear back from Pablo. Thanks again, Dawson
Dawson Needham is a great handyman to work with. He assessed what needed to be replaced, what could be salvaged, and got the job done in a timely manner. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again. Thank you Dawson for your expertise.Jul 5, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I normally charge $35 an hour, unless I bid the whole job. Working hourly ensures I will make money. If I bid a larger job that would involve more money for materials and labour so there is greater risk.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?To try and determine what it is they want to accomplish and the best way to complete the job. And to determine what type of budget they have to work with.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?The first 10 years of my Carpentry career was on the job training. Then I started doing finish carpentry. In 2003 I entered the Apprenticeship training program with the local Carpenters Union, which I was involved in for 5 years.
