San Jose Handyman Services Reviews

"A 2-3 day job extended to a multi week job due to painting problems. First, original painter had accident and never came. Second painter was here several days and was unable to do the job correctly. The third painter finished job to almost our expectations. Completion of job extended on because of a dropped cabinet door by a paint match expert at
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
who dropped and broke one of our cabinet doors. The need for a door replacement and painting of said door went on for quite a while. All this said, Nick, the owner was always professional and punctual in keeping us informed. He did not ask for the final payment until job totally completed. Was sincerely apologetic about our experience. His wife,
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, also returned emails promptly. Would probably use this company again because didn't feel that any of this was his fault.

"He was professional, punctual, and did a good job with the faucet as well as the fence. But a couple of years later, when I tried to get him to come out and do some more jobs, it was another story. I had to leave several messages before he called back, and then he was too busy to come out and do the work. He gave me a date that was about 2 months away from the time I had called him. Maybe the jobs I had called him for were too small. Because of our past experience with him, we didn't want to go with another handyman, and waited to make the appointment. But in the end, he could not make the appointment for us, and didn't return our calls. Not sure why.

"I am so happy with the service from
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. From the first email contact to the completion of the job.

On Sunday evening, I emailed Heartwood with my list of items requiring fixing. Monday morning, an email was waiting for me.
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
needed clarification of the water line problem and within a few minutes another email popped in with the costs. She asked how soon I needed the work done and because the light had been out before Christmas, I requested an "ASAP". Well, to my good fortune, they were able to come out today - Tuesday between 12-2. About 30 minutes before 2, Nick called to tell me he was running a tad late and that he should be there about 2:15, and he was. I explained each of the service areas and Nick went to work. First was the clogged hot water line. There was barely any water pressure. I assumed it was a clog in the angle stop, but Nick suggested it could be the valve in the hot water faucet. Low and behold, that was the issue. Small "rocks" had completely imbedded themselves in the valve. Guess that's what they mean by "hard water." :-) Problem solved. Next was the caulking of my counter. No problem, done. Followed up with the ballast replacement. Nick quickly went to the hardware store to pick up the ballast and now we have all lights working in the kitchen Success!! Before leaving, I asked Nick about a replacement front door and framing. He gave me a ballpark number, but also suggested some alternatives to reduce the costs. Once we decide on a door, we'll most likely have Nick come out again. Everything completed within the 2/Hour Minimum - $180 cost. (+materials) Nick was both personable and professional.

"After my experience with the last handyman I needed to try again, and so went with
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. Getting things set up were a bit dicey. It seems like texts don't always get there because initially there was a problem getting responses. Also, in terms of getting things scoped out doing so via text message would cause a 2 minute conversation to stretch out to a half hour of responding to and waiting for responses to texts.
The original scope was to install a deadbolt and to install weatherstripping and a door shoe all on my front door. In the original text message
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
had sounded confident that it wouldn't take more than 2 or 3 hours, at a cost of $270
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. Based on that I decided to move forward.
It ended up taking 3 hours for just the deadbolt. It required repositioning the latch slightly. Because I didn't have the weatherstripping on-hand and what he recommended was only available from Amazon I ordered that and we re-rescheduled the rest of the work for Friday.
The work on Friday ended up taking an additional 3 hours. Nothing unusual or wrong with the door (other than needed to touch up the paint a bit), but even just doing the shoe and weatherstripping exceeded his original estimate for time and money.
The quality of the work is excellent and I do not dispute the accuracy of the billing. I am just having a bit of sticker shock since the final bill ended up being over two times the estimate. I would consider hiring him again, but I would insist on a more accurate estimate, perhaps an actual quote/proposal, before hiring.

"Scheduling was somewhat problematic. I had originally talked to
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
about a Saturday afternoon visit since that was the day I was moving in to my new house. I made it clear in our conversation that we would be there around 1pm. He called at around 10am-ish because he had finished early. I explained that we weren't there yet so we had to reschedule. I ended up staying home from home work to accommodate his schedule.
First visit was cut short due to
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
having a family emergency. He finished what he could, I paid him and he left. One of the doors was done. He damaged the lock cylinder on the door he did complete, but was honest about it happening and pointed it out for me instead of leaving it to discover later.
Second visit was a bit difficult to schedule. When he did visit I was not there but my partner was. He was unable to install the second deadbolt (which was identical to the first) claiming "it wouldn't go" and he "couldn't make it work" and so he left without really explaining what the problem was. (A locksmith has since examined the deadbolt and proclaimed it to be working fine.)

"Nov 8th
Follow-up visit after my initial review where the handyman made corrections to the work I was unhappy with at no extra charge.
Second appt was much better Nick was on time and work was satisfactory. I would now consider them for future jobs.
Nov 1st
First they called in the morning and wanted to move the appt. to another day. When I explained that I took the day off of work they said they would send someone between 1230 and 1, rather than the original time of 1030. At 3 minutes till 1 the handyman called me and said he was running late, saying he would be to my house in 15 minutes. About 130 he called me and said he had gone to an incorrect address and he would now be to my house in 20 minutes. He finally arrived at 205. Ok...so the job I wanted was to hang 20 pictures on a wall in evenly spaced rows and columns. It seemed to me like it would be a pain in the butt to try and line up everything perfectly so I wanted to hire a professional. Well I did not get what I was expecting out of the professional. First off he said 20 pictures would not fit well into the space and that I should go with 16 pictures instead...I had no issue with the change so I said go for it. He then spent over an hour measuring out the placement for the 16 pictures...which to me seemed very excessive. I could not tell if it was a stall tactic or he was just not at all good at doing measurements. It was at this point that I considered just asking him to leave but I fought my better judgement and kept quiet. So after the hour+ of measuring he put in all the nails and hung the pictures...they were crooked. So then he did some more measuring and adjusting and then they were better but still not perfect...this was now more than 2 hours in...they charge by the hour. Next he did some touch up painting because he had basically written a
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
on my wall from all the measuring and remeasuring and remeasuring. The touch up painting went fine. When that wall was drying he shifted over to hanging two large pictures and a clock. The clock seems to be okay...but the screw he used to hang it seems to be too large because I could not get it down off the wall to adjust the time after he left. The other two pictures came out okay but he again incorrectly measured and now I have a large extra hole
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
by one of the pictures, which he said he would patch but it never ended up happening. After the first wall was dry he went back to hanging the 16 pictures. He started hanging them and when he could tell that they were not lining up properly... he said the hangers on the back were not all at the same height. He put on all the hangers on the back of the frames mind you. By this point I was just over the whole thing so I said I would finish putting the frames onto the nails after he left. Then he offered to sweep which was a nice idea but again tick
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
...the measuring problems that started the appt. had eaten up so much time that I needed to wrap this all up. So that is the long story. So what I feel like I got was 16 crooked pictures. 2 decently hung pictures with an extra un-patched hole...and a clock that will have the wrong time until I fight it off the wall. I admit that I am not a handy man...which is why I hired this company...and the end result was not much better than what I should have done myself. At least then I could be un satisfied with the result for free.
