My garage was a MESS and with winter coming I needed to clean and reorganize everything so I can park the car inside. Daris wasn't at all daunted by the task and just got right to work. He asked thoughtful questions, took great direction and brought a creative mind to the project. He was able to condense and consolidate my things so smartly and efficiently. He's pleasant company, kind and very professional. He was nicer to my things than I would have been! I will definitely call him again.

We had a sliding patio door that would not budge and a party happening in just a few days...weren't sure if we could repair or needed to replace. Mark made time in his schedule in case a replacement was needed, but convinced us to let him see if repair was an option. Despite an "expert" friend telling us it wasn't possible to repair, Mark was able to get the patio door fully operational! Mark took the time to show his work to my parents (home watching the kids) and then run through it again with me on the phone afterwards. He also went to the local big box store and sent me pictures of what doors would be available in case we wanted to replace in the future. I highly recommend Mark..wil definitely be calling him for any future handyman needs!

Over many years my wife and I have had to hire several different handymen for different jobs in the house and apts. we have lived in. Brian is by far the best! He is ready to tackle any jobs from the simplest to complex and always brings his full set of tools--ready for anything. Brian is extremely professional, capable and experienced, as well as friendly and personable. We would give him 10 stars if we could! You will not be disappointed--he is the only handyman you will need!

I hired Claudio to tile my backsplash in my kitchen. He quoted me a very fair price, showed up on time despite a snow storm and did an excellent job! He was cheerful and pleasant throughout the whole process and cleaned up everything leaving the kitchen the same as when he arrived (except nicer with the new tile)! I plan on using Claudio for other projects in my house and am happy to have found a handyman that not only follows up but shows up and does a great job.

Where do I start? Roland provided me with a great customer service experience that met my expectation. I knew from the time I received the initial quote and a review of his previous projects that this would be the contractor that I was going to have bring my install to fruition. He arrived ready to work, provided an overview of what to expect and delivered on every aspect of the project. Roland is such a driven professional, that encountered a bump within the project and instead of letting that halt the project, he say it as an opportunity to take it to the next level. Needless to say that I am over satisfied with the experience, Roland and his team has won me as a customer for my home electronic needs. This is the organization that you want to select, you can’t go wrong. Great company, custom work and competitive pricing that deliver satisfaction. Call him today!

Don came in after another contractor to complete a kitchen and enclosed porch project. I was very impressed with his professionalism and communication. Not only was he responsive, but he consistently followed though as expected. In addition, his pricing was very fair and he was conscious of properly managing my expectations. My house is approaching 100 years old and there have been some unique challenges and he is always focused on how he can solve the problem. I have liked working with him so much that I have added other projects (i.e. garage door replacement) and referred him to two friends/neighbors who are both currently working with him. Already thinking of what projects I will have him tackle next year!

They came over but due to certain curcumstances not in their control they where unable to fix my door. They did give some great advice towards going with ceramic tile for our new kitchen floor and getting our floor done before we replace the laundry room door. They where very nice! If I ever really do actually get my floor done I would definitley call them again to install my new laundry room door. I really appreciate them coming over and trying anyways. They were wonderful!

Stan's Handyman service is simply the best. I had a tricky, very heavy wood Murphy / Wall-bed with tons of parts / pistons / mechanisms that had to be fully taken apart to fit in a tiny freight elevator. (My stress level high as frame wasn't meant to be fully taken apart.) The bed then had to be installed on an older building plaster wall. Stan's work ethic is fantastic - so responsive - he worked non-stop, has a natural instinct and so wonderful to work with, I can't say enough of how thrilled I am that I had the good fortune to hire Stan for this and what surely will be many projects to come.

Thomas is both professional and courteous. I mean he got the job done and was as nice and friendly as could be. The work I needed done was installing a new DC panel on my boat, not an easy task. Yet Thomas got it done and patiently explained what he was doing as he went along. When finished I turned on the power and everything worked first time out. He was on time and got all completed in record time. Thanks, Thomas!

Julio and his assistant assembled 3 pieces of furniture that I and my partner ordered online (desk, kitchen cart, adjustable TV stand) and hung a large painting in our kitchen. His services were very detail oriented, professional, and friendly. He was on time, and his pricing was very fair for the amount of work that was done. I highly recommend Julio's business.

About

I had a million things to do around the house with no know-how on how to get it done so I looked on Yelp and Craigslist for help. I ended up meeting 5 handymen to give me quotes and for me to evaluate their services. Luckily, Charles Lebano was one of the handyman I met with and the one I eventually selected. He has been absolutely fantastic as a handyman and I refer him to everyone I know! My friends have started using him and are reporting back good things too. So far, Charles and his team have been getting the things on my to-do list knocked out... putting in new floors, repaired some wall and ceiling drywall damage, painting (oh so much painting!), installed new electrical for ceiling lights, installed my ceiling fans, put in a new bathroom fan, put in kitchen backsplash tile, put up some crown moulding and installed two flat screen tvs for me. Every single thing has been done perfectly and at a very reasonable price. I trust him and his crew at my home even when I am not there. Charles is also great in communicating exactly what is going to happen when and for how much so we're always on the same page. It's a really nice change from other handymen I have worked with. My dad and brother came out from Chicago for a visit and they inspected all of his work (they own a construction company) and they also gave his work a thumbs up. Phew. I was kinda sweating their review because they can be really critical so if they said the work was good then it is. No question. So, two thumbs up for Charles!
