One of my rental homes recently became vacant so it was the perfect time to care for the house and spruce things up so I could put it back on the market for rent. The immediate need was to clean out the neglected leaders and down spouts so I hired Derrick for the job. Because he was thorough and clean about his work I gave him the same job for all my other rental properties as well as my home. In fact, I have arranged with him to do this service for me yearly on all 5 of my properties. Since the vacant rental also needed the pergola painted I gave this job to Derrick as well. I was impressed with his painting so I gave him the job of painting one of the interior rooms. The walls and ceiling of this room was the original deep red/wine color from when I purchased the house. Derrick did an excellent job and the room is now a pleasing soft beige.. His trim lines were clean and there are no smear marks around or on any of the trim, windows or electrical plates or switches. The following day, he power washed the garage floor and used special detergent to ensure the removal of oil in preparation for painting. He also cut the grass and did some garden work. He is a clean cut, responsible family man with a wife and two young boys. During our conversation, I found him to be quite knowledgeable about interior home construction and patio stone work. Because of the quality of his work he did for me, I am going to use him for some construction inside my residence as well as making a small front yard stone patio. Since I have had the experience of working with many other handymen and contractors, my review for Derrick is a rock solid five stars.
