Barry is everything you could want in a handyman! He's dependable, capable, trustworthy, and just an all around great person. I couldn't have wished for anything more hiring Barry to help me get my house ready to sell, and once I realized I couldn't do it all myself, I found Thumbtack searching online and Barry promptly responded to my request at a very reasonable cost. For all tasks large and small - Barry came through wonderfully. He'll help with anything that is needed, and he is very easy to work with. Thanks Barry..!Mar 6, 2015Verified
Barry installed a closet system for me, and helped fix some work done by another handyman. Additionally, he fixed my son's bunk bed, which no one had been able to do. He made sure he knew what my expectations were, and he followed through. The quality of his work was excellent. Unlike anyone I've worked with since I moved here earlier this year, he cleaned up the work area, which I greatly appreciated! I have more projects on my home, and when I get to them, I will call Barry.Jul 13, 2014Verified
Sink or Faucet Installation or Replacement
Barry is a busy handyman and for a good reason! He did a great job and was very affordable. Most of the other handymen we reached out to were intimidated by our project and wanted to charge very high fees or kept trying to refer us out. Barry was confident with his experience he would be able to help us out and he did a great job. He's a professional person who we felt comfortable having in our home. Even when he was busy he was willing to find time to fit in our project. We highly recommend him!Dec 13, 2018VerifiedBarry's Repairs's reply
Wow! Thank you Theresa...what a wonderful review, I so appreciate it and appreciate your kindness and patience in waiting for me to get this project done. Thanks again! Barry
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I base all and any of my work on a $30/hr basis no matter what the job is. For larger jobs I submit a bid for the entire project based on how long I believe it will take. I also offer to the customer a reduced rate if I finish the work earlier than expected and charge them only for the hours I put in. I have been able to save many of my customers labor costs on this basis.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?For larger projects I like to meet with the customer to go over all the details of the work to be done and then give them a bid based on what we discussed. For smaller jobs, such as replacing a faucet, sink, toilet, etc. I let them know my per hour charge and give them an estimate of how long I think it will take to complete the work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am looking at getting certification or licensing in electrical and/or plumbing repairs.
