Wayne worked with me to establish a very actionable plan and proactively initiated all the ordering of parts and started on the smaller tasks right away while we waited for the large windows and parts.
He delivered the projects on time, on budget and fully meeting the planned outcomes.
I recommend Wayne without any reservation and will hire him back for all future projects.

Wayne was very through and spent time analyzing our list of issues. He fixed our window issue when others were unable. Plus provide maintenance solutions to avoid further issues. I would call Wayne again for any of our handyman projects.

Wayne has done a number of jobs for us over the past year. We are happy we found him!! In the fall he cleaned out our gutters and discovered that our roof had damage from an ice dam the previous winter. He then installed a metal roof with meticulous care. He pays attention to small detail. I trust him and find him easy to do business with. This spring he is rebuilding our back deck. This job is a bit of a challenge as older houses shift and get out of square. He is not daunted by the glitches that arise. I actually enjoy watching him problem solve. I recommend Wayne without reservation. He does excellent work, charges fair prices, and is generous with his time and expertise.

Wayne did a marvelous job installing two new exterior doors and entry systems for the condominiums where I am an owner of one of six. The persistance of methodical attention to details is evident in the results of his work. The job was completed ahead of schedule for a better price than other estimates. The other condo owners here seem favorably impressed, too. I will be asking Wayne to do other projects for the condo association as they arise.
