Introduction: HELLO !!!! Please be advised that whenever you select one of us to contact about your particular work request we are automatically billed by THUMBTACK !!! Please before selecting any one of us have a good level of certainty that you will be hiring that person ......me or anyone else . The fees are quite high and add up quickly if folks are simply " KICKING THE TIRES " and not HIRING . When you look at the profile and reviews for any given contractor or business you should be able to get a very good picture about that workman and his abilities to take on your particular work request. Always keep in mind that what you are being quoted for your work request is typically based on the skill levels and the time of experience in the field with the various trades and specialties ...... this is what you are paying for to have your job done right and done at a fair price . There is no cutting corners when it comes to quality and nothing in this world is free . Its why we do what we do ......we also have to make a living to pay the bills . I have over 35 years experience in the trades which primarily are centered around Plumbing & Drain Services, HVAC Services (excluding refrigerant charging ). I also do smaller electrical jobs like installing fans, lights , switches, receptacles, diagnostic work for electrical power loss, and its repair or restoration . Please realize that when you feel you should select the " simple task " and the " should only take 2 hours " options that this might not be the case .....typically a client is reaching out for a professional because they may not have the skills to do the job to begin with . With plumbing it is very common to find more problems than just what you can see .....this can make the job a bit more complicated and then of course take longer .You won't find a lower price for the quality of work that I do. I GUARANTEE ALL of the work that I do. I enjoy meeting people and providing needed services and I am happy to explain what needs to be done within reason ....I cannot be on the phone teaching plumbing 101 but I do want to be thorough for sure . I am very transparent and make every effort to not end up with any surprises to pass on to my clients . If something else is required I make it known and thoroughly explain why and sometimes this will come with additional time and materials costs . Every day could be looked at as a new adventure or challenge. Customer service is my number one priority. Give me the chance to show you what quality work looks like. I have been a TOP PRO with THUMBTACK for over 6 years with over 621 jobs completed and over 469 reviews received .......anyone is always welcome to read through them !!!! Thank You Kev Mac K & M Services

Emergency Plumbing

We had an emergency plumbing in the middle of night. Although at the end it got resolved by itself, Kev was very responsive and helpful. I would consider him for our future plumbing needs.

Garbage Disposal Repair

Kev responded to my request very quickly and tried to understand my issues. He completed all three jobs within an hour and gave me a very reasonable price. Very pleased and will hire him again for plumbing needs.

Garbage Disposal Repair

A previous thumbtack vendor messed up a garbage disposal installation. K&M redid it in an excellent manner. He also replaced the faucet the original vendor broke while attempting to install the garbage disposal. My old Faucet had gotten corroded and took a lot of work which he gladly did in an efficient cheerful manner. I would recommend him for any job any time in the plumbing area. Thumbtack also covered the damage from the original vendor so they deserve a thank you also. They only took two days I believe.

Kev was super knowledgeable and happy to help with several different plumbing issues in our home even though he initially came for a kitchen faucet installation. He took the time needed to make sure everything was done correctly! I’m so glad we found him and we will definitely reach out to him again for future jobs as well as recommend him to our friends and family :)

Professional - Thorough - Prompt.  These are traits satisfied clients love working with.   K&M Handyman services represented these and more.   I reached out to K&M with a broken kitchen faucet plus a broken water valve.  Despite turning the water source off, the faucet continued dripping water. I sent requests to multiple handyman services.  K&M was the first to reply-within 5 minutes of my request!  Kev went into “diagnostic” mode by requesting for photos to best provide resolutions and quotes.  Every communication pertaining to the “solution for the prognosis” was clear.  And when Kev noticed I sounded lost via text since plumbing terminology can sometimes be confusing, he immediately called to explain the job and ensured I would have a functioning kitchen within a few hours.  Kev gave a 40min heads up before arrival. As soon as he looked at the cabinet, he noticed I had an old water softener which was not only taking space but the excess water pipe wirings were overly complicated.  Earlier when I provided him photos they were just on the valves and not the entire under sink area.  Kev proposed removing the broken water softener & filters(something I’d been wanting to do for years), replacing the broken valves, broken faucet and while he was at it “simplified” the water pipes.  Kev’s new proposal wasn’t to add cost to the job-he simply wanted to help me remove unnecessary devices which was causing quite a bit of chaos under my sink.  Kev’s work was professionally done, he was thorough and his expectation of perfection with the approach of “decluttering” and “simplifying” was a huge bonus.

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

    I do put out fixed rate quotes most times for most requests and after hours or Holiday time periods .....especially if its an emergency. I typically I come in lower than any other service for that particular situation . Its here that future service calls are made , as I always want to be the clients go-to guy. I do have a minimum 1 hour rate and can pro-rate hourly charges if requested !!!!

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

    I would say its kind of like opening a present ......you dont know whats inside but your Happy to be there and have the opportunity .....so your mindset and demeanor should reflect that. Sometimes folks are having a tough time and may be frustrated about the situation , so its here that patience and understanding are really important in order to reassure the customer that all will be done to sort out and remedy the issue at hand.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I do review tech updates for Plumbing fixtures and materials.
