About this pro
Got a groupon for my daughter $135 for 4 hours handyman work, with the understanding that work included (2) men working. My daughter desided to have them scrap the paint from her outsde shed and start painting it. At 9am 1 (one) not so presentable man showed up. I said to the man, "I thought there was to be 2 men"???? He laughted and said, "oh, hahaha, nope just me". Then for over an hour he scraped the wood on the door as in the very outside wood, the wood that frames the outside door and the next 3 hours was spent scraping only the wood that framed the shed, not one bit of the other wood was touched! So all he did was 4 boards, as in 2by4s on two sides of the shed, the other to sides were doors. So I paid $32.5 an hour for the worse job of handyman work I have ever seen in my life, I'm 62!!!! Forget these rip off artists! They should not be allowed to even build a dog house!!! BUYER BEWARE!!!Jul 15, 2015
Cody and his wife were so helpful not only in completing the work (installing handicap ramps) but also in finding information on care providers for my mom! The work was done in just a few hours and Cody was careful to ensure we were pleased. This is one number I'll be hanging onto for future jobs!Jul 31, 2012VerifiedTwo Buddies C.'s reply
We strive to help peopel, that is the whole idea around our business. Thank you so much for the review.
Cody and Alex installed tile for my in my master bathroom. I called them to do the job as I was about to list my house for sale, so the job had to be completed very quickly and with short notice. They did an excellent job, and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. They are extremely polite, easy to work with and friendly as well. Dealing with Cody's wife in the office is a pleasure too. I recommend them to anyone looking for help with just about ANY job!Apr 25, 2013Two Buddies C.'s reply
We look forward to helping you in the future. You are good people!
These guys did decent work. However, they didn't come in to let me know they had done it. I didn't even realize the work had been done. About a week later, I get a bunch of angry calls and texts, and a guy beating on my door early in the morning. The first contact was in the afternoon on a Wednesday. I paid Thursday morning. It was a very annoying experience. I will not be using them again.Apr 11, 2013Two Buddies C.'s reply
We do agree this situation became very frustrating. We completed the work, the customer knew work was being performed as it was scheduled pretty far in advance and there were people at home during the time work was being performed. Our policy is to collect at the job's completion to avoid these types of situations, that is unless prior arrangements have been made. The technician on the job was directed to collect and could not because the customer was not on site at time of completion. I am sure the customer knew the work was done because a brand new widow was installed. The technician has called 3 times and went by the customers house 4 times trying collect. There were no angry phone calls, as there was never a phone conversation, the customer would not answer the phone call. The text messages were direct but not angry, lots of time was lost trying to get the customer to cooperate. So we 100% agree this was an annoying experience and could of been avoided with a little communication. We have no problem allowing a customer time to pay if they can not afford it immediately but that has to be agreed on prior to work. I am sorry this the way it turned out, I wish the customer would have called the office to discuss a payment option to avoid unnecessary aggravation.
