We have used Charter Services on several occasions over the last year or so while getting our home ready to sell. Exceptional work and problem solving efforts. So often you can't find someone willing to tackle odd things that come up with old houses. And there are always surprises. Everything was explained and options given. We enjoyed (!) having Kevin in our home and plan on calling him for some smaller jobs at our next residence. He is our go-to guy. Valuable to have when you're a senior or just don't have the skill or time to tackle some of the handyman issues that come up.

Jeffrey is good to work with, has done a good job. He has great painting experience and knows how to caulk and fill in and makes things look good. Good at a wide variety of handyman tasks. If you need someone to go to Home Depot and pick stuff up, then do the work, he is capable and reliable and willing to do that as well. He knows how to do a lot of minor maintenance repairs around the home. He also did some yard clean up tasks well.

These guys were great. Two brothers doing their apprenticeship in carpentry who were such hard workers. Hired them to pressure wash my house, garage, deck and gutters, as well as tar around my chimney. They did a great job, showed up when they said they would. They knew I had a small window to get my jobs completed, fit me in around their existing accounts and got them done with time to spare. I highly recommend these gentlemen to anyone who values a dependable company that offers quality service.

I learned at a young age from my grandfather to do the job right the first time, keep my word, and honesty is the only way. For the last twenty five years or more, I have kept those principles primary (behind God's principles of course). I am a general handyman who can pretty much do any flooring, plumbing, electrical, automotive, or carpentry project. Please let me know what your needs are, and I will save you money, as well as exceed your expectations.


Good service, cheap prices. Will travel and have my own tools.

I had a semi-urgent leak in my bathroom. Grant was quick to return my message and flexible enough to work around my schedule which kept him late on a Friday. We have a few more things we would like to have done around the house and we will definitely use LoneWolf in the future.


We provide full-service handyman. I have worked as a tile setter, painter and wallpaper installer for fifteen years. The other workers each have over fifteen years of experience doing a variety of home repairs. We also have a licensed electrician and plumber. We can do just about everything. We guarantee our work for a full year, which gives you peace of mind. I call clients at about ten months and make sure the work is still holding up. This turns out to be a way to generate more work. It lets my clients know, too, that I am serious about standing behind our work. We are happy doing small jobs. We often can get to jobs the same day, if necessary, and can usually schedule jobs within a week. I have been in the Yellow Pages for over ten years. Sincerely, Max Bridgewater

He was the only one who answered my request for help. He did an excellent job, fixed the problem, a man of his word and at an affordable price. I wouldn't use anyone else for a handyman service unless Ted said he couldn't do the job, only then would I look elsewhere.
