Mariano is the best. He is not just a good handyman, he is also a trained professional, who is a fully cerrtified electrician. His bag of tools is limitless - so there are very few situations he can't handle. And if he gets to one, he will tell you honestly and directly why he cant do it.
Mariano started with the job he quoted on - installing a new over-the-stove microwave oven. Even though the job took longer than he thought it would (because of unforeseen problems he faced in removing the old exhaust system, and preparing the area for installation), he stuck to his quote.
After that I gave him four or five more things to do, which he did rreally well - mostly electrical stuff (like adding dimmer switches, or extra outlets, or an extra light in the laundry area). He provided me a quote (very reasonable), and stuck to it, even though some of them took longer than he thought (because of obstacles he faced when he opened up a part of a wall).
I am very happy with his work, and would most definitely recommend him to others.
He told me does most appliance installations, and most handyman projects, except those that relate to sewage, or require very specialized tools (like specific plumbing work).
I will definitely have him back.
Total amount spent: $600 + materials.
