Reviews for Austin Handyman Services

Rated Review by Natalie A.
"After swearing I would no longer write reviews for Angies List (I am in total disagreement with the fact that it takes 8 no shows and complete wasting of customer time and effort to equal 1 good review, thereby skewing the scoring of a contractor that screws people around), I had to write about this company.
These guys came out early to access the job, then came back on time and ready to work. I had been told by a pest removal company that I had to have the wooden framework which is attached to the brickwork on the exterior of our home removed to have the screen replaced as it was not able to be accessed from the crawl space. The gentleman from
asked if he could have a look, got to it almost immediately and said it was no problem to get to, all he needed was screen. Since I had anticipated that this would be a two step job, I didn't have the screen on hand, but had several small odd jobs that they got to work on immediately while I headed to the store. Upon my return, they had finished all the jobs, and put away the ladders since they no longer needed them. They took the screen and installed it so securely that not only will squirrels not be able to get in my attic anymore, I feel fairly certain it might be the only thing still attached to my house after a tornado. These guys were professional, extremely courteous, skilled and eager to please. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Austin Handyman Services Reviews

"Since the drawings that I promised took a while, and I hadn't heard from him, I thought that he might be waiting on the drawings, so I called him. He said that he had been having trouble with a relative and would be getting back on it soon. After I emailed the drawings and he acknowledged receipt, I waited a while more without hearing from him, I sent another email and asked for confirmation of his intent. He replied that he had suffered an injury and would be back in action soon. I still have not heard from him in several months. I have decided to seek other providers.
"Our entire experience from start to finish has been exceptional with

"Provider arrived about 10 minutes early, which I wasn't a fan of, but I'll take it because he wasn't overly late, so no big deal. My main issue was the time it took for him to provide a quote to simply replace my current front door with one I had already purchased that was sitting in the garage. Overall it took about 45 minutes. When I showed him the door in the garage, his first reaction was to tell me that my current door was better and asked why I had purchased it with a disrespectful

(the door I want to install is mid-century, but in quite usable shape, I like the style better and found a good deal). He then told me very matter of factly that I had purchased a backwards door when I hadn't - he couldn't seem to process when he was looking at the replacement door that he was looking at the side that would face indoors. At this point in the interaction I knew I wasn't going to hire him for the job because he was rude and I didn't trust that the work would be quality. Finally, he quoted me around $500 when I had received a quote for around $300 from a couple of other companies. Overall the experience left a bad taste in my mouth.

was fantastic. I used to work as a house painter and I was very impressed with the coverage (one coat) on my porch. When he was done, he mentioned he wasn't a very good painter, but he was selling himself short! He went over and above as he tried to help fix something that was not fixable. He told me exactly what was wrong, and made a quick repair to keep the plumbing tight until a plumber could get in there for a full repair. He worked in the hot sun all day, and then crawled under the sink to fix something after the time of the contract had expired. Great guy, excellent painter and sharp enough to temporarily fix a plumbing issue... I'd hire him again in a heartbeat. I have no doubt that if I gave him a full day on more complicated tasks than painting he would have been up to the task.
"I gave very little description of what I wanted since I wasn't perfectly clear myself about what I wanted. What I really wanted was for someone to come out and fix these things in the right way, using some expertise that I don't have about what the possibilities were to guide the completion of the projects. This is exactly what
Austin Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did. He knew what would fix these problems in the best way leaving me not only with a problem solved but a better situation all around. For instance, he remounted the screens which were originally secured with six finishing nails with eight screws, improving not only the looks but obviously also the strength of the whole set up. He also shaped up a piece of one - by - one cedar to match the rest of the railing on the stairs. This I would never have asked him to do; I would have been happy with a railing that worked, but he gave me a railing that worked and also looked great. In the living room he also fastened the railings to studs which of course they should have been in the first place but weren't. Everything he did was solid professional workmanship. And he was on top of that a very pleasant person to work with.
"The project went very well except for some rescheduling due to weather--a spell of wind and rain which prohibited working in the patio. The providers team work was well coordinated and I was impressed.

"He had to use a ladder on my upper deck to seal around some picture windows that were rather high up. Just standing on that upper deck gives me vertigo, so I appreciated his nerve to work on a ladder there. The work was finished in good time, and I am quite satisfied.
"This was not your usual single stem light fixture. It is 4' long, attached with a 2- screw plate at the ceiling, and hung with a center cord and 2 wires on each side to stabilize length of shade. That meant all 3 wires had to be adjusted evenly to hang level. Not a easy task and one that had to repeated until the correct height over the table was achieved. It was a frustrating process for both of us, but

spend the time calmly working to make me happy with the result. And I am thrilled with the last touch to my newly decorated dining room. This is the 3rd time we have used

and have been completely satisfied each time especially with the very reasonable pricing. We will continue to use them to for the more complicated and physically demanding items on the Honey-Do list, keeping both my husband and myself happy.
