I’m very happy that RWM came to replace my existing faucet. I was stressed because I needed my kitchen faucet replaced before Thanksgiving. I first contacted him today (tues 11/20) and he went out of his way to help me. He was working nearby and said he’d come by and replace faucet because it wouldn’t take that long. I can’t express how happy I was to hear that. Truthfully I normally call my plumber for things like this but from now on I’ll be calling RWM Handyman LLC. He and crew are experience and qualified to do many areas of home remodeling and repairs. After looking over his portfolio online I feel lucky that he came by to help me out with the faucet. He remodels kitchens and bathroom basically if it has to do with home repair he’s the guy to call. I’m not one to give a good review unless I’m throughly impressed and I was with RWM. Thanks so much.

Details: Faucet replacement • Undermounted sink • 1 sink • One handle controls both hot and cold water • 1 faucet • Less than a week ago

We were looking for someone to install a new toilet and thankfully we found Russ. Russ contacted me within a day and had our job on his schedule to be completed before the end of the week. Russ is extremely friendly, professional, and did quality work at a very reasonable price. We will definitely be using him again in the future.

Details: Replacement; there is an existing toilet (which needs to be replaced). • 1 toilet

Russ did a great job in the end. After his first pass, there were a few cracked tiles that he happily replaced and made right. He fell just shy of excellent (5 stars) as there were a handful of small issues throughout the process (i.e. several tiles wasted due to poor soft tile & poor blade, failure to catch a few mistakes on his own, left the work area dirty - dried grout that should have been wiped up, put a clear sealant before cleaning the joint - so the mess showed through, but could not be wiped clean). I was able to do the finishing touches myself to make it right, so not a huge deal. But the takeaway should be that he was a pleasure to work with, trustworthy, communicated well, and offered a great value for the service he provided. I would imagine the issues I experienced were most likely anomalies and I would likely use him again in the future for small jobs.

Details: Kitchen • Backsplash • Less than 25 sq ft • No existing material (e.g., tile, carpet) needs to be removed • Drywall • No; but I will buy the tiles myself

Russ did exactly what was promised from beginning to end. Installed new baseboards throughout my entire home in less than 1 day. Also hung a French interior door in 10 min. Happy to refer him cause I know he’ll stick to his word and get the job done right.

Details: Interior door (e.g. bedroom door, closet door) • 6 or more doors • Basic door (swings open and shut) • Wood • Yes, I already purchased the door • Home

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

    Basic handyman services are priced by the hour. Any services that take less than or up to one hour will be billed at $69 total. Any work over one hour is billed @ $49 per hour, rounded up to the nearest hour. e.g....... 40 minutes of work is $69 and 2 hours and 22 minutes would be $147. All remodels and larger projects are bid by the job. Free in-home, no obligation evaluations provided for all jobs.

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

    I am a professional roofer in both Illinois and Missouri, I was a licensed contractor for soffit, siding, and fascia. I also have installation training for bathroom remodels and shower kits. I was also trained and licensed for asbestos abatement and removal at one point. This is an area I do not practice anymore

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

    I started in the construction trade at 17 years old doing hydro-demolition and Roofing for a residential company. I went from there into a union roofing company doing commercial properties in St Louis. I ended up having back surgery that put me out of the heavy trade for a long time and I used my business studies to further my career in multi-unit management. most everything I do outside of those fields have been self-taught over many years of trade work.
