I've worked with Sergio on several projects over the years. I own a historic home which I have been renovating. Sergio has helped with small electrical projects, he has mounted televisions, other wall hangings and helped with general handyman jobs. Sergio is diligent, respectful and hardworking. I have referred him to several of my friends who also found him honest, conscientious, fair and hardworking.

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.

Mark did a great job on the 4 projects I hired him to do. He finished a storage closet with drywall taping and mudding, trim, and paint and it looks great. He also replaced rotted wood trim on a window and patched a cracked window sill, replaced slit wood breathing on two garage doors and painted everything. Mark adjusted a pocket door that had been hard to close and now it works. All projects were done within expected time estimate and within agreed rate. No extra or hidden expenses like some will use. He was on time and courteous and cleaned up at the end of each work day. I will call him for my next project and give Mark a high recommendation if you need a handyman contractor.

Chris was great and fast! He put a bed together for me and recycled my old frame and the packing box. He also helped me with a quick small add on handyman type repair in my bathroom. I will not hesitate to call Chris in the future.

I recommend Mr. Cid, Carpenterz art as a handyman. He is responsible, punctual and a quick worker. Mr. Cid is also a nice person. Yesterday, he assembled an Ester Audrea Queen Wall Bed with Two 25" Storage Units and Drawers. The instructions said it would take approximately 15 hours to put together, but Mr. Cid had it up and ready to go in one day. We could not be more pleased with Mr. Cid's skills and work ethic.

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.

Christopher was prompt and helpful. Once I accepted the quote he installed my mailbox and post the next day. He was very polite and courteous and did a quality job. I will definitely be calling Doerner for my handyman and construction needs. Thank you!

I hired Mr. Cloer and his son to maintain my parent's yard. He has mowed, aerated, and mulched. He will be trimming and the hedges and trees. Very pleased with the quality of work. My mom has told me several times how nice & polite they are, and said they are "hard workers". This means a lot, because she was heartbroken when the last gentleman had to give up his landscaping business. Will continue to use their services.

I would highly recommend Lockett Handyman Services for any general repairs. Paul was right there hanging a heavy mirror I could not manage, fixing my piano lamp that movers took apart and left an impossible mess, installing an electrical dimmer switch for a too-bright chandelier and replacing dowels that movers lost from an antique desk - all in little more than 2 hours of time!

Mike has helped us out several times with repairs to sheet rock work and final painting. Mike understands how to blend in the old with the new to make it look great. And without leaving a mess. He's a pleasure to have around the home and has the utmost integrity. His expertise extends much wider than finish work in that he has the knowledge and skill and experience to do any aspect of home building and repair. Thanks Mike!
