Holiday Lighting Installation and Removal

Bob did an excellent job hanging our lights! He was very responsive and was able to do the work quickly. Even cleaned out the gutters! Would recommend for sure!

Holiday Lighting Installation and Removal

Robert did an excellent job hanging my holiday lights up. He was professional and spent time thinking how they would look the best. I’m definitely going to recommend him to my neighbors and keep him in mind for other handyman tasks.

Appliance Installation

Robert did an excellent job replacing my electric cooktop. He was reasonable in quote, clear in communication, and arrived on time. He removed the broken one and helped disposed it at a recycle facility. For the new installation, he was also thoughtful to consider using silicon to seal the edge, although it turned out my Bosch cooktop comes with some sealing materials on the edge.

Wu Shu, that electric cook top is real top line efficient. Thanks for helping to save the planet.🌎

Appliance Installation

Really great experience with Bob. Got a new microwave installed along with external venting. And also had Bob fix a Nest thermostat wiring issue (low battery/ power). He was able to help fix both issues. His experience shows in his work and how he goes about fixing a problem. Very professional yet approachable. Another good quality with Bob is he is very engaging and open to suggestions/ discussions. Explains what he plans to do and open to ideas/ suggestions. Overall, 5 star experience. Thanks Bob.

Fan Installation

Bob is amazing... He installed a ceiling fan in our living room with a 17ft ceiling. He came prepared with scaffolding and all the tools needed. He has obviously done this many times before and knew exactly what was required. The price he quoted was the price we paid, and I appreciate that! He is also one of the most professional contractors I've hired and will definitely recommend him to all my friends.

Kim, your photos before hand help the project go smoothly. Good timing, 👍🏼 the heat and those extra tall ceilings deserved that elegant fan. Handy Bob is happy for you.

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

    You will not be charged a consultation fee. My hourly work rate is $100 first hour, $60 p/hr thereafter, including all future projects @$60. We will discuss any needed items to finish the task quickly and with quality, the results are 'this is how it would be done for my family'.

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

    Start with sending a photo or link to new item to simplify your description when we 'chat'. During the actual work phase, I explain the steps involved for your understanding. The worksite is cleaned up whether we are ending today or returning tomorrow.

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

    I started with my first re model 30 years ago, doing commercial work including landscaping
