Todd was hired for deck repair, power washing and staining. He was extremely peompt to respond to my thumbtack post and to my subsequent texts abiut the job,, etc. He did an EXCELLENT JOB on our deck. It looks brand new! But to show how great of a person he is as well as a handyman...He was at our house working on our deck at the same tome we we were having hardwoods installed. When the old flooringy was removed we found a hole in one floorboard from a leaky door and damage to others. He volunteered on the spot to fix it at that moment and literally saved the day. He even came out On Easter to finish and did another EXCELLENT JOB! I cannot say enough good things about him! I would highly recommend him! Thanks Todd for everything!

Sergio is great! He was timely, professional, and worked with us to ensure he was accomplishing the task just how we wanted. It turns out we had a faulty light fixture, and Sergio has gone above and beyond to explore the issue and offer potential solutions for us. He exceeded our expectations for handyman/electrical work. We're looking forward to working with Sergio more in the future.

Dean did an amazing kitchen tile job for us, as well as some exterior siding repair and miscellaneous jobs on a rental property we own. He was extremely patient in working with us and the tenants to decide on a solution. I was very impressed that he went out of his way to drive to multiple stores to find tile that might work. He was very accessible and informative, and was very reasonably priced. I'd definitely recommend Dean as a handyman.

He was very responsive to my requests from beginning. He was very prompt and showed at the exact time he promised. I showed him what I needed done and he promptly went to work installing under cabinet lights and in multiple closets. He completed Putting together 2 bookcase/cabinets that needed to be lifted/placed upon the lower part and did a great job . Also did paint touch up and put trim back on the cabinets. He went to Lowe's to help me purchase shelving for closets and did a most excellent job. With installing multiple wire shelves. I would highly recommend Santiago for anything needing repair or installation. He is professional and can do just about anything in your home. He was neat in all he did. I would absolutely call him in future for anything I would need done. He is now my go to guy..

Santiago is a true professional. From initial quote to final inspection, Santiago was punctual, efficient, knowledgeable, personable, and most importantly...completed quality work. Santiago repaired my fence and gates, which were in disrepair for my knowledge and time allowance. Impressed with his craftsmanship, I asked him to re-tile my kitchen and eat-in...which looks amazing. I would strongly recommend Santiago to anyone with a project on the horizon. He is fair in price and sees to every detail. I am certain that I will be calling Santiago for future projects myself.

Tim and his crew have now completed 2 jobs for us at our property. The first was to finish installing vinyl shutters and do extensive plaster work on the ceiling of our garage where there was water damage. The second was to do a number of smaller projects related to dog and use damage, from replacing a window sill and baseboards, to installing new wood floor transitions, grout repair and recaulking a shower upstairs. Without exception all of this work was completed to the letter of what we had asked. It was also done in a much quicker manner and more professional manner than my wife or I could have accomplished. Tim was also very responsive with both e-mail and phone communication, and the price was also fantastic. I would highly recommend them for any project you might have as we've been very happy with them on both of our projects.

I hired Mr. Byrd and his crew to do some interior painting, pressure wash house and decks, and repair rotten door frame. His initial response for a price quote and scheduling was very good and he underbid another home repair contractor and that was good. Overall Mr. Byrd and his crew did a very nice job on the interior painting on walls which were badly stained by cigarette smoke over the years. However, I should have known better than to go to work and leave a check expecting the work to be completed, but I didn't really have a choice that day. The back door frame that was repaired badly needed a second coat of paint. Also, when pressure washing the front deck floor they chipped the paint of the bottom of the deck rails. I called Mr. Byrd and told him about this. He told me that he would come back early the next week. That's been 2 weeks ago and I've not heard anything else from him. I have a realtor coming in to look at the house next week so I guess I'll have to make these corrections myself. Although these are small things, I feel he should make it right since he's been paid for the job. Mr. Byrd has come back to correct the issues that were pending. Apparently, he thought that someone in his crew had come back to do this, but they had not done so. Everything looks very good now.

Wayne, Frank, and the rest of the crew were phenomenal! The job was painting the entire inside of my 2-story single family home. They were efficient, clean, and thorough. I appreciated their attention to detail and communicating with me if and when complications came about. I had several other vendors (plumbers, pest control, HVAC) coming by throughout the job and they were able to coordinate their painting efforts simultaneously as to not prevent the other jobs from happening. This is a world class group of gentleman and I would highly recommend them.

We hired Mario to remove the popcorn ceiling in our main living area and paint the ceilings and walls. They took care of moving all the furniture with care (even after I asked if he wanted us to move it). The job took a bit longer than expected however it was worth it. The completed job looks amazing. He doesn't just get it done but was extremely thorough, walking around multiple times with a small flashlight to ensure there were no more discrepancies in the ceiling. Once the job was completed they also cleaned the place. I will be hiring Mario again in the future for other jobs and will be recommending him to anyone who asks for a contractor.

Mario and the Daisy team fixed holes in our kitchen ceiling, repaired doors and walls, and painted three rooms, including our kitchen. They were very professional. We were really pleased with the results. (And we had very little clean up to do afterwards--very neat and tidy.) Great communication--Mario is on top of keeping in touch about schedules and is incredibly prompt in replying to queries. Highly recommend Daisy Construction. Would definitely employ again.

Dave helped tear down an old porch railing and then built us 8x8 columns, to our exact custom specifications. They came out beautiful! He did some repair work on our siding as well. He facilitated getting my house and shed painted using a local painter and I was very happy with the final product as well. His style may seem a bit laid back / not-hurried, but he works alone (generally) doing most jobs himself, so the work may happen slower than having a team of people crawling all over the house, but the quality was worth it. We wouldn't hesitate to use him again on our next project.

Dave and team did an outstanding job replacing our master bath shower! The job entailed ripping out the old shower, replacing / updating some of the plumbing, a tear-down and replace of some sheetrock to ensure the new shower hit correctly and installing the shower base, enclosure and shower door! All done to perfection! I would not hesitate to work with Dave and his team on any future work I needed done!

Laura did an incredible job putting up a fence around my back yard. The fence turned out beautifully and Laura was a real pleasure to work with. She worked with me to come up with the perfect design that so that I could get the look I wanted for the right price. She was very meticulous and thorough in her work but still got the job done in a timely manner. I could tell that she really cared about getting things done the right way. If you are looking for a carpenter I would highly recommend Laura!!

Lp is a true master of her craft! She built a deck for us; she was efficient with time, but she ensured the work was done correctly and paid special attention to detail. She also framed out a dishwasher and made a custom slide out spice rack to fit our awkward space in the kitchen! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND LP Designs because she is honest, talented, and is focused on doing the job right.

Laura was incredible through the whole process. The fence looks amazing and she did pretty much all of it by herself to ensure that everything is done right. We had just moved in to our house so she gave great advice and help on a couple of things (as well as keeping me sane when we had a major plumbing leak as soon as we moved in). Laura stands by her work and it definitely shows.

During initial communications, Darren exhibit experience by thoroughly investigating the job so as to provide a detailed and accurate quote; he represented himself professionally and demonstrated follow through until the job was completed.

A&E Remodeling, Guy, built a high quality all season room from a previously built back porch for my family that blends so well with the house inside and out. He was prompt each day and got the work done on schedule. He seems to have the knowledge of each step of the building process with any question we asked being answered professionally. Easy to get along with and feel we got our money's worth and then some. We utilize this new room daily and has truly added value to our home.

Guy was terrific to work with! He really knows how to handle a broad range of repairs, and was very responsive to questions. He gave us a good price on a cabinet removal for a new range, and did the work quickly and professionally. Communication was great, and he even followed up with us afterward to make sure the installers were able to get everything set up right. We look forward to working with him again soon on some other projects, and really appreciate his help!

Guy was very personable and easy to work with. I have an old home which guarantees surprises whenever we do work so having a handyman who can navigate many situations is important.

I would hire William and his son, Michael again in a heartbeat. They were incredible wonderful in both their work ethic and their overall attitude. They move a laundry appliances for me, this included picking up the new ones, delivering the old dryer to my son and taking his broken dryer to the dump. They installed both the washer and dryer only to find that our current outlet wasn't a match for the dryer cord. William insisted on going to an appliance parts store to find the parts which fixed the problem. They made sure that both appliances were correctly connected and in working order. As if that wasn't enough, William's estimate was $150.00 LOWER than all the others (7) I recieved. I am sure I will use him again in the future as his skills also include painting, caulking and carpet cleaning along with being a very talented handyman. I will recommend William Hall to both friends and family . Thanks guys for making a tough job so enjoyable!
