Ric
was very professional in the primary meeting to assess the project. He took the time to survey the extent of the damage and propose a repair. The project was scheduled. He kept in touch to coordinate and confirm the preparation and work date. He and two skilled carpenters arrived on time and worked with focus and energy to complete the project in one day. The quality of the work was excellent and their set up and clean up reconfirmed their professionalism. The cost of the work was very reasonable for quality work. I am already working with him to schedule additional projects.

BUYER BEWARE
Do the math: 8 man hours + materials = $749.00 Since this included a two-hour "deal" from Angie's List (supposedly valued at $95), the actual price would have been $775.
Pretty high hourly rate for a "
," but Mr.
is, of course, really acting as a contractor and, even as such, his prices are way high. (A retired contractor I know told me what I got was worth about $500. Stupid me: I should have called him first.)
Yes, this is my fault. I had no idea how long this job would take and when we met Mr.
, he seemed to know what he was doing and inspired confidence. I assumed this was at least a 2-day job and accepted his estimate, which I thought was based on a $45-50 hourly rate (based on the deceptive "Bid Deal"pricing).
had good reviews (though, in retrospect, they had very little detail), and I foolishly thought he would be involved in the work. And I didn't get another estimate.
Angie's List "Big Deal": to this, I say, very sarcastically--"big deal." I initially wanted to apply the "deal" to the porch job, but when
came by, I showed him a couple of loose bricks in my steps and he said they could fix those and he'd include that in the job. It turns out that what I got for my $69 "deal" (supposedly two hours of work valued at $95) was some mortar shoved under the bricks on top of the old so the bricks stick up and out (wish I could include a picture), a job that took 15-20 minutes tops.
The other thing that really galled me: when
showed up to look at my porch, I told him I thought some rotten boards needed replacing. He assured me that they weren't rotten, they just needed to be "nailed down." Initially I thought the porch looked pretty good, but soon after the porch was painted, the boards I thought were rotten are still soft and cracks have appeared in most of the freshly painted boards, so I sent
more photos. His exact response:
"The porch boards because have been left up painted for a while have started to dry rot leaving the wood as you see it. I think you painted it in time but I would keep and eye on it. Not much we can do at this point. Perhaps a third coat may help. If we have the paint left over I would only charge you $50."
So now, after the job was completed as prescribed by
, it turns out the boards ARE rotted, he say, and "not much we can do." And, no thanks, Mr.
, but since I can apply a third coat myself in less than a half hour, I think I'll keep my $50. (Unbelievable that he thinks I would pay him even more!)
On responsiveness: Initial response was slow, but he apologized when we met, citing all the
deals. I said I was OK with that. While he has replied to my e-mails, he's not really responsive: To my complaints about how much per hour he charged me, all he said was "I try and be fair with the pricing." He won't address the ludicrous "big deal" or explain how pushing mortar around two bricks was the equivalent of a two-hour job. And now he blames the rotted boards that HE told me were NOT rotted for the problems with the newly painted porch, which he
me to "keep an eye on." When I pointed out in my last e-mail that HE told me those boards weren't rotted and didn't need to be replaced, he ignored that, replying only that he'd have one of his people contact me for payment.
I'm disgusted.

Our interactions with
New Orleans Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
went well.
New Orleans Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
had other obligations on the day I contacted him for his services but because I lived near his route home he worked me into his schedule arriving around 7:00pm. After brief introductions, he immediately began the work to remove and replace the faucet and completed the job quite quickly. He was kind, professional, and had reasonable rates.

They were very professional and responsive. Their price was fair and they provided a detailed quote before starting the work. I would recommend their services for light maintenance and repairs. We were turning over a rental unit and it worked well for us.

Mr.
New Orleans Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was a good communicator.
He provided a time frame and called prior to his departure to our house to ensure it was still convenient.
He explained what he was going to do, how he was going to do it , how long it would take and provided a fair estimate.
The estimate was the final cost for the job.
*...More /> I paid him in full on the first day for my own convenience since I had plans away from the house.
During the job it began to rain and he had to leave the job unfinished. He offered me my money back until he could return.
I did not accept his offer to return the money. He returned the next morning to complete the job with no calls from me.
*
I plan on using him again for any future maintenance needs.

I contacted Berry at 9:30am on a sat and asked about installing my tv. He said he was able to do the work same day and would be at my home around noon. He was prompt and kept in contact with me. HIs work was quick, efficient, and professional. He quoted me a ball park figure by phone and the job came in under budget. He was kind and a pleasure to do business with. I will absolutely be contacting him in the future for any handyman work I may need. All in all he did a great job!!

The lock is exactly identical and fit the finish of my door handle. His repair was quick, competent, and he cleaned up after himself. He was professional yet, had a great sense of humor and made conversation in a way that frankly allowed me to forget the trauma of the prior night- an unexpected bonus to his competent repair. In addition, he refused to charge me for his service, and seemed happy to help. He only charged me for the lock itself, which I of course expected to pay for- and even then, it was at a 20% discount!!
I will be using him in the future without a doubt. In fact, I had him look at some other things in my home that I had on my repair "to-do" list before he left. Of these items, he just went ahead and fixed one thing right after I showed him. He said "Do you have a pair of pliers?" I brought pliers, 2 seconds later, it was fixed (also did not even bring up labor charge.) Of the other items, he pointed out a few that he said didn't need to be fixed, (contrary to the prior handyman who told me I needed to fix them and wrote an estimate.)

is likable, competent, efficient, and kind. I do not plan on using any other handyman in the future. I trust that
New Orleans Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
would let me know if there was a "specialist", i.e. electrician, etc., needed. And even then I would have
New Orleans Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
review the estimate before the work was done. I would also use
New Orleans Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to recommend the specialist if I needed one.
As an aside, after telling him the details of the assault at gunpoint, he told me that if I wanted to take a gun class or get a permit, etc. he could recommend someone that could help and that he was a very nice and professional person. I told him I would get back to him. Today, I called back, he answered the phone promptly, and I asked for the name of the gun instructor. He said he was in the middle of a job but, would text me at the next break. An hour later he texted the name and number. I called the guy and on the phone he was very professional and friendly, just like
New Orleans Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
said. I will be taking the gun class this weekend.
The lock works, I am happy to have found

(via advertisement in the
New Orleans Handyman Services Provider Name Locked

He uses unlicensed retired subcontractors who do not perform good work. It took months to repair the work performed by these subcontractors. I would highly recommend one of the subcontractors named
