Installation went without a hitch. Friendly, expeditious, professional service. I had been concerned about this installation because Home Depot installers claimed I ordered the wrong size door for the space and seemed to want to create barriers to getting the job done (like scheduling me weeks out). I had faith in the manufacturer (ironically a supplier of Home Depot) and in my measurements. And I really had the feeling Home Depot didn't want to do it.

I called for an estimate for some home repairs. A nice young man named
Milwaukee Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
came to my house on June 18, 2014. He was on time and getting an appointment with him was easy.
He said he would get back to me with an estimate. It is now Aug 11 2014 and after 5 phone calls to this company I still don't have an estimate. They kept telling me they would get an estimate to me but they never did. Two months is too long to wait for any estimate.

came over, looked at the project, and gave us a price. We agreed that he could start the next day.

showed up right on time. The railings were a little more complex than we thought, but
Milwaukee Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was able to make some adjustments and get the job done. We had to delay the project because a few extra parts had to be ordered. When the parts came in,

was right back on the job. The shutter installation went very smoothly. We would use
Milwaukee Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
again.

The garage windows, painting, and storm door job went okay. He wasn't able to finish the job at my sister's house but never came back. He was called a few times but never answered the calls. I understand if he wasn't interested in the job but then he should say that. He did a lot of things for me in the past, but I guess now that he has a bigger clientele, he feels he doesn't have to communicate or provide good service.

The provider got wrong the meeting time first, then we rescheduled and
an hour after that he called again to cancel the appointment, and didnt
even give another meeting time/date. Complete lack of interest on the
job.

Gutter cleaning isn't a popular business.

quickly returned my request for service with a phone call, and actually fit it into his schedule to get to my house that afternoon. He was friendly, thorough, and charged a fair price. I'll definitely be calling him again this fall.

I had multiple issues with this contractor:
-Overpriced
-Poor Workmanship
-Substandard quality
-Lack of professionalism or customer courtesy
-No warranty
-Incorrect equipment (indoor hardware used on exterior fence
and gates)
-Refused to 'make it right'
-Charged me for every callback and correction on initial
quality issues and structural problems

My husband initially contacted this business for work on our
garage. Shortly thereafter, he passed away, unexpectedly. The work still needed
to be done so I worked with the same business my husband had contacted
originally. I needed repair to my existing garage and significant yard
improvements (foundation and fence). He did not provide a quote initially and
began working based on my verbal budget limit of $x. (by the time the job was
complete he charged me more than double that original limit I gave him). I
believed he was doing the right thing for me so blindly that i bought the
refreshments and lunches for him and his crew for the entire month he worked
here. I paid for his parking ticket at my site. He used some of my husbands
tools. He used the equipment i paid for renting for his own personal use as
well as on the job use. He would not provide receipts to me even though I asked
for them. The quality of the workmanship was substandard from the beginning.
Everything I noticed, I questioned, he justified or gave me a run around as to
whose fault it was. Once the work was complete, I had several significant
problems including leaning fences, garage door failures (multiple times-still
an issue), fence structural integrity, retaining wall alignment, gate hardware,
cracked sidewalk. I have had to pay additional people to fix many of these
problems and some still are not fixed. This contractor will not return my calls
now. He definitely took advantage of my vulnerability in a delicate situation.
He knew my husband personally, and knew that I was not familiar with the
business side of home improvement needs.
I wish I could undo this work. VERY UNHAPPY!
I would like one of two things:
1)Fix the issues that remain and reimburse me for the things
I have had to pay others to fix, or
2) Reimburse me the difference between what I gave as a
budget and what I was charged in full of the services as I didn't get what I
asked for.

My initial phone call was answered the same day. Considering the time of year it was and how busy it must be, this was impressive.

also came to the house on time and when he said he would. We wanted a full covered front porch built across the house. Price was an issue and
Milwaukee Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was very accommodating. He was up front with associated costs and ways to save (including postponing the project until fall). He listened to all of our ideas and really paid attention.
After our initial meeting, he returned an estimate via email. Again, considering this brutal winter an how busy contractors are, it was very timely. After changing the size and other discussions, we decided that this season wasn't the time to do this job.
Milwaukee Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was extremely understanding and encouraged us to make the right decision based on our needs. I got the impression, he truly wanted the best for us. This was very refreshing from a contractor.
We will be saving up more money to do this job and
Milwaukee Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
will be our only call.

Milwaukee Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
saved us from ourselves again. My husband and I replaced everything in the tank of our 23-year-old
Milwaukee Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
toilet with a new replacement kit, and we were feeling pretty good about our work, when suddenly after the fifth or sixth flush, water started pooling out in front of the toilet between the base and the floor. This was worse than the problem we'd started with! I called
Milwaukee Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to ask for advice on what we could have done wrong since all the work we did was in the tank and this was leaking out from under the front, and the woman thought maybe we'd displaced the wax ring by yanking around on the toilet while we worked on it. She said it would be easy to replace, but we decided it was time to bring in someone who'd taken apart a toilet before.
We called
Milwaukee Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, who'd helped us with a faucet repair a few years ago, expecting to make an appointment for tomorrow, but he was willing to come out today even though it was nearly 5 already. He arrived, removed the toilet and replaced the ring, and then tightened the connections we'd done in the tank. All better in no time.

has helped us twice when we got in over our heads and has done great work. We have no complaints and would not hesitate to call him again.

reviews the work list before beginning the job. He makes suggestions but also is very willing to hear what we had to say and how we wanted it done. He finishes on time and cleans up completely when done. Always pleasant to work with.
