Insanely expensive, $150/hour for handyman service, not upfront about it. will never use again! Care for the details, here they are: Needed handyman services for a variety of things around the house (most involving wood) and an interior door installed. Henry came in, looked at it, and said he works on an hourly bases at $75/hour. He said he brings an assistant to get the work done efficiently. $75 was on the high end for a handyman, but I thought his good reviews justified it. He took measurements for the door I needed installed. He wasn’t available for 2 weeks to start. I waited. When he came in to do the work, he said he wants $150/hour, as his assistant charges another $75/hour. I agreed to just one hour as he was already there and I’ve been waiting 2 weeks. When he realized I’m not ok with $150/hour for handyman labor, he started quoting me per project as he is going around the house and selecting what he is and is not willing to do in that hour. More fun! The french doors (standard 80x72 available at home depot for $550) were quoted $2000 for the door and $1000 for the install. A loose piece of wooden frame around attic door that I asked for 2 or 3 nails in it to tack it down was $100. Adjusting hinges on a door was $150... and so on. I guess they are just used to people who hand them projects for thousands of dollars and never question it. I am a dentist working with a group, we all have 8 years of professional schooling and 10+ years of experience, and our hourly rate is NOT $150. I’m sorry, the skill and equipment needed for handyman services do not justify that rate.Dec 1, 2018VerifiedHBWoodwork & Solutions's reply

Henry was fabulous! He came about 3 hours after I posted my job and was quick, thorough and explained exactly what he needed to do and made sure I was 100% satisfied with the work. I will certainly contact him again!Nov 13, 2015Verified
