Stephen completely cleaned our gutters, He also cleaned up on the ground where the leaves fell. He did a very thorough job. I was impressed that he called when he said he would and showed up at the house as promised. He COULD NOT HAVE DONE A BETTER JOB!..I recommend him for any handyman needs!

Joe provided excellent service. He helped me hang a light fixture in the living room. I put in a request at 5:30pm, he responded moments later, and was at my doorstep a few hours after that. He's got the best handyman price in Boston. Great demeanor, gives tips, and was very professional. I plan on living in Boston for several more years, and he'll be a GREAT resource to have next time I need a job done.

I would recommend Neil for any handyman work needed around the house. He was able to fix my noisy toilet and dripping faucet in a fast and professional manner. I even had him do an additional project while he was here, adjusting an ill-closing door, and replacing the weather-stripping. His quick response on Thumbtack and accommodating scheduling made the process even easier than anticipated. I will be using Neil for any future projects that come up at the house I need professional assistance with.

I had a great TV installation experience with John. He answered questions quickly ahead of the appointment, made wires and big boxes like a router disappear behind the installation, and was clean even taking trash with him. He also went above and beyond by helping me secure a curio cabinet to the wall - something I'd been wanting to do for a year. I recommend hiring John for TV mounting work, and he's probably available for other handyman tasks too.

Marc was friendly and knowledgeable. He was on time, responsive and reliable. Marc assembled our new Ikea wall storage unit and did a great job. I'd hire him again to work on other "handyman" type projects around our home.

Upon the recommendation of my mother, I hired Lance to assemble two rooms worth of furniture to include a large dresser, desk, entertainment center, coffee table, night stands and side tables. Lance arrived on time and immediately went to task. He was very friendly, professional and hard-working and extremely skilled and meticulous in his work. When we noticed that a couple of the items had been damaged during/prior to shipping, Lance was very accommodating and took the responsibilty himself of ordering the replacement parts directly from the manufacturer. When the replacement furniture arrived the following week, Lance returned to complete the job. As a finishing touch, he hung up some wall decor and did some handyman work. He cleaned up all packing materials and debris. Lance's fees were very reasonable and I would hire him again in a heartbeat. I love my furniture and it looks beautiful! THANK YOU LANCE!! Regards...Christina A.

Ben was very friendly and responsive. He helped me install the glass door for the shower. The glass door is really really heavy so I was really concerned that he is coming alone and doing the job all by himself. But his price was irresistible and his availability also matches mine perfectly. Nonetheless, he showed up early and finished the job very nicely. He also cleaned up the dusts after he finished. I am very happy how it turned out. Highly recommend Ben.

This was the first time I worked with Steve and will hire him again whenever I need any handyman services. He's very reliable and professional. Steve came at the time we agreed and assembled a dresser with care. After he had left I noticed that one of the drawers was stuck (it appeared to be faulty, not because he had done anything wrong) and emailed him and he came immediately back to fix it. I would definitely recommend him.

Bobby was great. He gave me a quote and didn't look to change it even though the scope had changed. He was on time when he said he would be and did the installation without a hitch.

John was great! He responded quickly to my inquiry and came over the next day to address a range of electrical issues (fixed back porch light, fixed motion detection light, fixed a light switch that wasn’t sitting properly in the switch box) and other random needs ( e.g., fixing latch on backyard gate, fixed a bedroom door latch so the door could close). What I really appreciated is his explanation of everything that he was doing. He even ran out to pick up a piece I needed from Home Depot. His pricing was fair and work quality was great. I will definitely use him again as my go-to electrician/handyman. Thanks John

Kyle did several things; put up two bird houses, installed units on the outside of my house to hold hoses, installed door knobs, replaced broken handles on pantry cabinets, repaired utensil draw that was broken/droped down, fixed two radiator covers that kept falling off, fixed another cabinet door and fixed my toilet. He was so nice, professional and he did an wonderful job. Best handyman ever.

Ernie was incredibly responsive and kind. We did run into some difficultly with one job in particular. Mainly a roof that had significant rotting which became apparent as the flashing got pulled away. Not only did we have rotting wood and insulation, Ernie discovered a large carpenter ant nest nestled in the roof along with all the rotting wood. Time will tell as to whether or not all of the issues were completely resolved however I do want to note Ernie's incredibly hard work and dedication to getting the job done. Danielle

I finally found a handyman who knows to do everything, who is honest, punctual, and has integrity. Walmir went above and beyond in order to finish everything we needed, and it was a long list. He was determined to do every single item on my list until everything was done, even though it required extra time. I am so glad and grateful to have met Walmir, as he is going to be my "to go to person" for any job we need done. Highly recommended!

5 stars is not enough! He installed our doors in less time than he estimated and then actually charged us less than his estimate! Our new doors are gorgeous and work perfectly. He left the work area cleaner than he found it and even took time to keep an eye on our 19 year old cat. Pleasant, professional and the hardest working handyman I've ever known. We'll be hiring him to do our bathroom next! Thanks Bob!
