I called
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, and he picked up immediately. He called me back in the time he said that he would. He was terrific, upbeat, punctual, ontime, and worked in a timely manner. He did not need to use the brackets that I had purchased for the window airconditioners, saving me $80. I would call on
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
again, in a heartbeat!

He expressed how bad my wood work was and made it a big job. I compared him with the other providers who came to give me estimates. The other providers expressed care and explained me better what I need to have it done. On the other hand, I had to explain to
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
how
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
needs to be fixed. I don't feel he is very helpful. If he is in house repair business, he should know more than what he showed me.
He gave me an estimate that double the price from the other providers, so I decided not to go with this company.

First of all, the things that went really well.
1. The quality of the drywall repair and room re-paint were outstanding. Exceptional workmanship. I was floored when they were able to find the exact same shade of yellow the room had been originally painted ten years ago. You look at the walls now and you think you're in a brand new house. Makes my old curtains and furniture look really pathetic. :)
2.
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, the lead contractor was very polite and friendly, for the most part. When I told him I worked from a home office, he took great care not to disturb me while he was in my house. I was able to take and make business calls with no problem.
3.
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was very prompt and showed up for work exactly when he told me he would. He also gave me a 30 minute heads up arrival call when I asked him to.
4. Gave me all of the left over materials he didn't use, including a
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
of paint, a roller and a paint

.
5. The price was within $100 of what I had expected to pay. I like it when I can make improvements to my house within my budget.
6.
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was nice to my dog. That can be very important when you have people over to your home to do work.
7. My ceiling fan blades were cleaned before they were re-assembled. I was very surprised, but very happy that
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
would do that.
Now for the nitpicking...
1.
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
became very upset and went on a rant about how he would be losing money when I asked that he move the furniture into another room. Yes, I know time is money, but I thought by moving the furniture completely out of the room instead of just moving it away from the walls would save him time in the long run because he wouldn't have to maneuver around it while he worked. Apparently not. Instead of politely explaining to me that it would take more time to move my furniture than was worth the effort, I got a lecture.
2.
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
apparently didn't like it that he had to work in a room that was dirty. The hole in the drywall was in an area that used to have a very old and junky desk. I had the junky desk removed before
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
came over, but some of the junk, dust and cobwebs from the junky desk were still there. Not only did
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
have to clean the walls before he could begin work, he also had to clean the surrounding carpet. He knew that when he first came over to give me the estimate. But when I turned towards my office as he began work, I overheard him grumble "Unbelievable!" multiple times. If you don't like what you see, don't take the job.
3. My curtains were re-hung backwards.
4. The blue painter's tape wasn't removed from one of my light fixtures.
5. My media shelves weren't put back in place.
Though dealing with some of the problems was stressful for me, I would use
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
again for the quality of his work alone.

San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
came to do an estimate on 8/6/14. He sent a written estimate by email. We agreed on 8/15/14 at 8:30 am and he was here on the dot with a colleague. They covered the carpets to protect them. They worked quickly and efficiently and were finished in two hours. The new door looks great. Very clean high quality work.
It is difficult to find handymen who are good at carpentry and most renovation companies won't do small jobs like this one.

I needed demolition of kitchen counter and repairing water leaks from ceilings. I called Chip and he was honest to say that the job was "too big and my home was too far for him". I appreciate his honesty.

I interviewed a total of 4 contractors for this project. After meeting with
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, it was clear that they were the right choice.
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, the owner, was punctual, very professional and offered quite a bit of feedback on my ideas for the remodel. A remodel is a lot of work, even if somebody else is actually performing the work. It takes quite a bit of thought and time to get it right. I appreciated
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's suggestions because several of them really prevented me from making what would have been a few big mistakes. The
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
team walks in at the beginning of the day to work. There is no lounging around. The work that you're contracting for will get done. I had them make a custom vanity and it looks beautiful. The tile work was incredible as well. In fact, it was so good, I had two other contractors (not affiliated with
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
) comment on what a great job they did. Lastly, I found the entire team to be very trustworthy. If they said something would get done, it did. As a final comment, I'm not real comfortable leaving people in my house unattended. However, I was very comfortable with the entire crew and never had a reason to doubt that they would care for my house and belongings. I would hire
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
again.

and Remodeling met with my wife and I in January and provided a very detailed estimate for remodeling our kitchen and family room. We interviewed 2 other contractors but we've worked with
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
in the past and his pricing was competitive. Soon after we signed the contract we met with him with his designer
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
.
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
is a very talented designer and we know this because we've experienced some not so good ones. She was very in tune with our wants and needs for our remodel, provided more than we expected and came up with a great ideas to convert one of our closets to a wine cellar. Over the next 6 weeks we finalized all the details including cad drawings, granite selection, tile selection, hardwood selection, cabinet wood/doorstyle/finish, appliance and fixture selection (at Pirch) and paint colors. When we hit the "GO" button we felt very confident in our design and selections.
In early April
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and crew started the construction phase of the remodel. It took approximately 6.5 weeks to complete. Everything went like clockwork with the exception of a missing base cabinet that was damaged in shipping. It showed up 10 days later.
As in our previous remodel with
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, he exhibited a calm demeanor throughout the process even with the occasional challenges. He has been up front and honest with us, spot on with his estimate and scheduling, fair to us on the changes we made along the way and flexible enough to put up with our minor tweaks here and there.
One thing to note that was a welcome benefit with working with
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, its a one stop shop. Every supplier
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
suggested and we worked with were on the top of their game.
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked

Being without a kitchen for 6.5 weeks with a family of 5 was a challenge. We can honestly say that it was worth the wait. Oh, and I got a wine cellar!

was impressive right out of the gate. He was very professional and perceptive of what our design needs and wants were. His broad knowledge covered all aspects of this job requirement....demoing, , plumbing, electrical, City/Federal codes, and tile placement. He was very meticulous with his bid and pricing. There were no questions too small. He stayed within the budget. He offered up great ideas when we met a challenging situation. He was calm, cool and collected under pressure. His crew was extremely knowledgable, despite their youth, and showed up timely on a regular basis. .

supervised the project daily and was always on top of the day's needs. The crew got along great together and things ran like a well oiled machine. The crew cleaned up every day, so I was a happy camper. We loved working with
San Diego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, and the kitchen/bath project had been so successful that we called on them to remodel our fireplace.. We have never been disappointed in the final projects price, quality, or timeliness. I would highly recommend them for any remodel job. Our experience with

, his staff and his suppliers was outstanding!
