I had a leak caused by a handyman's work that ran from under my kitchen sink through the sealing of my basement. Eric came on Thanksgiving Day to repair the problem. I have an older house. He even changed some of the tubes that were wearing out. It was clear from the work he did that the handyman tried to take short cuts and I payed the price. Eric stayed until the work was done. He tested the system several times to make sure there were no more leaks.. and there haven't been any. I also found his prices to be reasonable. All in all, what was a nightmare ended up being a good experience. I would definitely use him again.

I was desperate to find a plumber after waking up to a leak in my kitchen from the second floor bathroom. After trying a bunch of referrals and not hearing back, I tried Thumbtack. Quality Repair Solutions/Eric responded immediately and after initial contact he was at my house and had fixed the leak in just a few hours. Eric was polite, professional and got the job done.

Eric is a very competent,honest and professional plumber who does not leave a mess and makes the plumbing work again. One of the best in the business.

The term handyman is an understatement when it comes to Andrew. He was professional, incredibly skilled, and most of all trustworthy. I was 24 hours away from closing on the sale of my condo in South Boston and the condo association was giving me a hard time about a broken step and damaged walls in the common area as a result on me moving out the day before, refusing to sign the necessary documents until everything was repaired. Then in came Andrew to save the day. I must have called a dozen companies that morning but none of them were open yet. I made my request on Thumbtack at 6AM and Andrew responded before I could finish my cup of coffee. And before I got to my office he had already visited the condo and sent a quote for the work that needed to be done. Keep in mind I had moved out the day before and wasn’t around to meet him. Andrew was the only person I could find to do the work that day and I was really trusting him to complete the work. Not only did he finish the work but he did an incredible job! The steps were from the original construction over 50 years old. He took the time to remove each baluster before replacing the step and even matched the original molding for the sides and under the front lip. The walls had gauges in them, so apart from touching them up, Andrew spackled and sanded before painting. And if the work alone wasn’t enough, Andrew also spoke with the condo association, something he didn’t have to todo. Andrew went above and beyond and I can’t recommend him enough.

The first time I called him was for the office. I needed chairs and cabinets built and he was the most reasonably priced handyman that replied. He came as soon as he could after a previous appointment and even got to the site 15 before scheduled. Super nice guy and works really fast. I called him two times after that for home. He put together a sofa, dining table, and toilet cabinet and every time is a pleasure. He doesn't charge more than previously said, and even helps with small things without charge. I have already recommended him to friends, and will call him whenever I need handy work done in the future!

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.

Mark was outstanding. He came on an extremely short notice, right on time--on Fourth of July weekend, no less. I had tried to assemble my couch and completely messed up the threading of the screws and bent one of the legs. That wasn't a problem, he had a set of tools ready and fixed the couch to make it even sturdier than it was constructed by the manufacturer. He did it in about less than an hour. Outstanding job, definitely calling him again for any future "handyman" services.

I hired Justin to accomplish a number of handyman projects around my house that had accumulated over time. He looked at my list & gave me a fair estimate for the work and scheduled a date for the work to occur. He showed up on correct date and time and with his assistant accomplished the projects in an efficient manner. The work was done in a professional manner and we have planned a second day for additional outside projects to be done when the weather turns warmer. I found Justin and his assistant Patrick to be pleasant and trustworthy in nature. I would recommend Justin Cameron for handyman type projects. Barbara

Verified review

Justin has been a pleasure to work with. He's a professional, courteous, hard worker with more-than-competitive rates. His process was the easiest I've had with any contractor I've worked with - I sent over my needs, had a quick meeting where he explained what he would get done, took the time to answer my questions on the spot, followed up with an automated detailed estimate and even signed the invoice right on his phone. Seamless, efficient work. I didn't have to follow up at all, which I'm not sure I can say about any contractor I've ever worked with. I've already asked him back for more projects!

Mr. Lydon did all of my household maintenance for over 7 years. Being a single female I am very wary of who I allow in my home. But he proved himself to be honest and trustworthy and I never had one concern for my safety or valuables. He did work from repairing my privacy fence, interior painting, yard maintenance, minor plumbing, built shelves, put furniture together and whatever project I needed at the time. I was always pleased with my results and his pricing is very reasonable. I highly recommend him for his services and integrity.

I needed a variety of handyman-type jobs--gutters put up, fix broken window, recaulk shower, fix light, shovel snow, etc. I had tried three other providers and they didn't show up or return calls. Robert is prompt to the minute, excellent with communication, does exactly what is needed and his rates are very reasonable. He is personable, cleans up after himself and can do a variety of different tasks. I am extremely pleased and would recommend him highly.

Ben was great! Explained different opinions of the project @ time it would take him. He even came on a Sunday to install a colorbar for me. He was very appreciative even for a bottle of water. Very fairly priced. After being severely overcharged for my last project I was very selective in my choice. So glad I picked Handyman#2 who quickly became #1!

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

I hired Ernie to intall a new dishwasher. Ernie was beyond responsive, and his punctuality and professionalism is something many other plumbers should learn from. He demonstrated to be very knowledgeable and experienced, recommending options without being condescending. You know a plumber has plenty of experience when they don't have to come to your house for a quote just to install a dishwasher. They know well what the job intakes and how long they need to complete it. He gave me a fair quote right from the get-go and when he came to do the job, he worked really fast and efficiently. I must point out, that he was very accommodating as I requested him to come sooner than what we had agreed and he came without hesitation and without asking for more money for the inconvenience. He is so experienced and competent, that I decided to continue hiring him for any future projects around the house.

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!

Very courteous and explained the cause of issue so I understood it. Had my dishwasher looked at as it would not drain. He found the problem (clogged hose under dishwasher) and showed me how I should keep the hose up higher under sink to avoid future clogs. Even offered to fix my cabinet door that was hanging on one hinge. Very professional. I would definitely seek him out again should I need to.

Walmir did a fantastic job with our condominium. We had our dropped ceiling tiles removed and installed with new ones. Very labor intensive work. Walmir and his son did it in four days, all seven floors. They are puncture, tidy and very professional. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a skillful handman.

Mr . Paolino has from the start been very prompt responding to my emails and answering questions. Once we settled on the first project that needed immediate attention, which was my leaking roof, he was here first thing in the morning and completed the work that day. It was just done recently but from what I can see, he has done a very thorough, neat and sound job and I'm very pleased with the results. I plan to continue using his company for several other repairs my aging home needs. It's a pleasure to have someone who can handle all repairs, upgrades and even remodeling instead of searching for individual contractors for these different areas of concern. I would say that anyone can expect to receive services from a man that takes pride in his work with the results, speaking for themselves in quality Yet he also cares that he has satisfied the expectations of his customer's request and needs.

We hired Bob to demo an odd room with a roof that was built in the middle of our loft. He’d estimated that it would be a two or three day job. As demos go, it’s hard to tell exactly until you get into it. Unfortunately, the structure was built to withstand a hurricane and was a much tougher job than expected. Everything was excessively nailed and had to be pounded out piece by piece. Yet, Bob finished in two days with everything hauled to the dump and the work area cleaned. He was on time and courteous and worked around my schedule. Before he could do the demo, we had to have the sprinkler system rerouted, and Bob was very accommodating with our start date. A hard worker, and I’d highly recommend him.

Paolino construction did a great job several months ago! The owner and employee were professional, yet consumer friendly, with a reasonable quote for services rendered.

TODD ARRIVED TEN MINS EARLY READY TO CHECK OUT MY PROJECT. HE ADVISED ME TO FIX THE GUTTER AND DRAIN PIPE THAT WERE DAMAGED FROM THE STORM TODAY AND AND ORDER PARTS TO REPAIR THE SIDING. WE AGREED ON THE WORK AND PRICE. HE DID AN EXCELLENT JOB. AFTER HE FINISHED, I ASKED HIM A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT MY GARAGE DOOR OPENER AND BEFORE I ASKED HIM , HE WAS CHECKING IT TO SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS. HE SPENT OVER AN HOUR LOOKING AT IT AND CHECKING THE ELECTRICAL SWITCH. HE LEFT WITH THE INTENTION OF RESEARCHING IN ON INTERNET. I MENTIONED A FEW OTHER PROJECTS AND I THINK HE WILL BE LONG-TIME FRIEND AS WELL AS MY "GO TO PERSON FOR ADVICE AND FUTURE WORK". LET ME CLOSE BY SAYING THAT I HAVE NEVER MET A MORE FRIENDLIER OR MORE HONEST PERSON WILLING TO HELP THAN TODD.

EXCELLENT — HIGHLY RECOMMEND Jay of all Trades for jobs both big and small. I am a real estate professional and have to deal with all facets of construction on a regular basis. I have nothing but praise for this company! I know when I’m working with someone who knows their business and takes genuine pride in the quality of the work they’re doing - and that certainly describes Jay and team he works with. Jay of all Trades has successfully completed 4 different jobs on properties that I have sold over the past 3 months and I have been delighted with both the process and the results on all of them. Jay was aware of my project deadlines and squeezed me in on short notice and started the job on the exact day that the contract stated. This rarely happens in construction. The work was completed in a timely manner and all my questions and concerns were answered. Once the job was completed, the area was thoroughly cleaned and left spotless. My experience with Jay of All Trades has been consistent across the spectrum of projects that we have done together — work is consistently delivered on time and on budget, and to say that Jay goes the extra mile to ensure that you are satisfied with every detail would be an understatement.

I needed someone quickly to put up curtain rods and attach metal curtain tie backs as well as repair hooks that were not secure. I was preparing for my daughter's engagement party with a large crowd expected. Dave Donnelly was recommended by a friend who had worked along side him when they did some building for Habitat for Humanity. Dave made time for me, came on time and did the work perfectly. Everything was as clean when he left as it was when he started. His fee was reasonable and exactly as he had estimated. He also immediately sent me a detailed receipt by email right away. I consider him my "go to guy" now! I highly recommend him and I know I will use his services again.
