Window Treatment Installation or Replacement
Thom is a knowledgeable, good handyman. His pace is perhaps a tad slower than other handymen, so allot your time accordingly. Overall, I'd recommend.Dec 10, 2016VerifiedA to Z Home Services's reply
I have requested this client to remove their deragotatory comment. Ceiling mounting work on a ladder at 10ft among a tight furnishings occupancy is by nature of the task and circumstances slower than other types of work as it requires many ladder repositionings that incur safely mounting and unmounting and careful moving of the ladder. Further, this clients ceilings are thicker fire rated drywall thru which the finest stud finging equipment sold cannot accurately find the structural supports. Given that direct ceiling mounting of heavy drapery is very rare, the client has no other equal work to compare. We have no obligation to be the speediest worker, instead our obligation is to perform the work safely for both the worker and the end purpose of the task without incurring collateral damage. We delivery that quality workmanship to all clients as attested by many, many clients herein.

Window Treatment Installation or Repair
Far surpassed my expectations. He arrived on time and was very easy to work with and had reasonable prices. His work was very high quality. He has a long list of services that he can do. However, he was also very upfront if there was something that would be better to get a specialized professional instead of a handyman (himself) to do. He also came to my rescue with the AC repairment who were also working while he was there. They had to cut a hole in my ceiling and he gave me a second opinion, measuring the space to confirm there was no other way. He then offered for them to use his (superior) tools and even helped them cut the hole. As brand new homeowners with a list of things to get done, we're already starting on the next list of things for him to come out and help with. We're thrilled with his work and will use him again and strongly recommend him.Jul 20, 2016Verified

Great job! He was able to repair the mistakes I made when installing my cabinet pulls on all of my kitchen cabinets. He was also able to conceal any errors with holes drilled in the incorrect places.May 1, 2018Verified
