    Efficient, Professional, and Personable
    Del mounted a glass dry erase board on our wall. We easily corresponded via text to arrange a date and time. He was able to quickly mount the board with little effort. He also answered questions and discussed other home projects we are considering. Very personable and professional.

    Timely Service!
    DR Handy Services were really great. They were in time and very professional. They didn't have the exact size of my sweep, and they still went to Home Depot to get the right size. I would highly recommend DR Handy for any miscellaneous needs and whatever other services they provide!

    My New Handyman
    I am so happy that I hired Del for my drapery rod install. He was easy to work with and flexible in scheduling a day and time. He arrived with his Dad and was able to install my rod in less than one hour. I will be hiring Del for my tv mounting services and have recommended him to another friend who needs services at her home.

    Exceptional Electrical and all Around Support
    Exceptional service and support. Very quick responses to the initial request for support and they kept us informed on their arrival from the minute we accepted. Service was really quality and he was goood at troubleshooting the problems we were having and resolving them. Also helped us with some other support needs on the spot, which was nice considering we just moved in and needed additional help moving some items around. Very courteous and professional! Would highly recommend for any need!

    Great service, great customer service, great price
    Del and his team assisted with a number of general electrical repairs as well as wiring for two wall-mounted TV installs. Del and his team made me aware of some of the shortcomings and made those corrections. They do great work, make you aware of things before and throughout the repair, their prices are incredibly reasonable, and their work is clean and high quality.

    Excellent Service!
    DR Handyman Services is a wonderful company. The owner Del personally came out and installed a ceiling fan along with a TV I needed mounted for me. He was on time and began work right away. He was neat, fast and efficient and very friendly. I look forward to using this company again in the future and highly recommend.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We make sure to be friendly, professional, and efficient with the customer so they feel confident they can trust in us and our quality work. We are perfections and masters of our craft. We want to make sure the customer feels as if they hired the best possible choice for their project.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I finished an apprenticeship with local 26 and graduated from the program. I was a union electrician since 2007 and started this company in 2015. I have been doing electrical work since high school and am very meticulous of my work.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
It all depends on the job. I give customers a choice whether they want us based on an hourly rate or a set price for the type of project at hand.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I worked in a hardware store in Bethesda which forced me to learn the electrical department to earn a living. Every step along the way was a building block to where I am today. After being a Union Electrician for 8 years I decided to take a chance and start my own company since I felt like I had the knowledge and experience to do it on my own.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with all types of customers! Either way I make sure my team does an excellent job no matter who we deal with.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
There are so many projects I could name but to name a few that I will always remember: Washington Nationals Baseball Stadium, FBI Building, CIA Headquarters, Air Force One Hanger.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Always check out the reviews and pictures. You can always tell what a contractor does by those two things by itself.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
How much is this going to cost, how long is it going to take. I make sure my customers are comfortable with my quotes and that it is something they feel like it was worth investing with DR Handy Services.
