was on time and professional. At that time, I had a hard time finding a reliable handyman.
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
informed me that he would charge me $100 to show up. The latches on my kitchen cabinets only cost $15. I agreed , because I needed the work done. The next time, I would not pay someone a flat rate just to show up. I would try to find someone who charges by the job. Basically it was a small job with a big price.

We have a 1916 Craftsmen in the North
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Arts District and are in the process of restoring the house to its original character. We ordered a pre-hung, 42 inch
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Fir, door to be hung in the living room of our home.
My husband found
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Improvement/
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
on the Internet and explained that we needed a 42 inch door to be hung.
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
sent his 'Carpenter',
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, to discuss whether they could hang the door.
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
came, looked everything over, and said I can do it.
The job was supposed to take 5-6 hours at $65 per hour. My husband and I agreed and
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
returned to our house on the Monday after our discussion to begin and finish the job, supposedly, on the same day. Or so we thought.....
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
talked our ear off for 3 days!!!! On the first day,
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
struggled to hang the door the whole day. He kept explaining that he had never hung a 42 inch door and he was trying to get the door "plumb".
Prior to
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
taking the job; I asked that he take the moldings and casings off of the doors as gently as possible so that I could keep them and re-use them, if at all possible, instead
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
ripped through the original redwood casings around the door, like a bull in a china shop, which made the casings irreparable. I have since had a real carpenter explain that it will cost me approx. $400 to replace the moulding that went over the door because they have to make it. Only one piece of original trim was salvageable after
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
removed it from around the door, not to mention he cut the wire to my alarm system and said he couldn't figure out what it was for.
The first day he couldn't finish the job, so he sat me down and said it was taking longer than he thought and he would be fair about the price (Fair about the price? Its not my fault you've never hung a 42 in door!!). He would come back the next day and what ever else he was saying. I couldn't believe it! That night we went to sleep with no hardware on the door and a nail through the door jamb as our only protection from the world.
The next day progressed and
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
took about 3 hrs to figure out how to install the hardware for the door. We learned about
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's children and how he didn't speak to them, we learned about his first and second wife and also his dog. He took out some plywood, yes, plywood, and put it around the door and called it the casings! It seems impossible that this could be real, but I have the pictures to prove it.
When he said he was finished, I began to question the big wood thing that the door was sitting on and asking whether it was going to be
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
or something? Thank goodness a neighbor came by and noticed that the thing on the bottom of the door, was actually the old doorsill that went with the old door.
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
had installed our brand new door on top of the old door sill and then when we confronted him and
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
about it,
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
blamed me!!! He told them that I wanted the door on top of the old doorsill. I was incredulous! I know nothing about doors and had never said such a thing to him.
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
then decided to bring another carpenter in so that they could try to re-hang the door.
They finally re-hung the door, on the 4th day, and they refused to fix the damage that they had done with the casings on the interior and exterior of the door frame. We had to have had to have the entire wall re-plasetered around the door and are still in the process of trying to fix the moldings and casings with a new carpenter.. Worst experience of our lives!
Please save your money, don't use
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
or his "Home Improvement" company. You will end up paying more to fix the damage they cause.

Called and asked for someone to come out to give me a quote for a few odd jobs around the house. Man on the phone who had an extreme cold and kept sniffling in my ear told me they were going to charge me over $100 to give me a quote, but because I am an Angie's List member that would be discounted to $80.
This is the biggest scam I have ever heard of. As an owner of 3 properties, I have NEVER, and I mean NEVER had to pay for someone to look around for 15 minutes to give me a quote. I say this is a scam because then you feel obligated to accept their quote otherwise you are out $80. Imagine paying $80 every time you wanted to get competing quotes. Do you just pay the amount the first guy tells you? I don't, and won't.

An estimator/coordinator came out and looked at my list and the project and said that everything could be done in the 40 hours of the Big Deal offer. Sad to say, he was wrong.
Also, I understood the offer to be a 40 hour week. Because there was one man doing the handyman work and two men doing the painting, my week became two days. I ended up paying an extra hunk of money just to get the priority items done.
The handyman didn't use the dog door installation kit which I gave to the estimator/coordinator (and had paid extra to purchase) and the shelf unit was cut smaller than I told the estimator/coordinator I wanted, probably because the handyman used some of that shelf wood to install the dog door, for heavens' sake.
I think that the painters should have brought their own stepladder and all the needed trays and rollers.
I give the workmen some credit for trying their best, but rushing the painting was a bad mistake. Paint splatters and drips in so many places and on so many things -- my wood cupboards, counters, floor.
It was a very frustrating experience for all concerned.

The bottom line is he didn't finish the job- here are my details:
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was hired for two jobs. First he ran plumbing and put in a sink and built a counter. The extended the warehouse electrical to add an additional plug. For this job I bought a sink off craigslist and didn't know it should have had clips to mount it.
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
sent me to Home Depot to pick some up, the ones available didn't work, so
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
just left them in a heap on the floor, no mention of waiting to get the right parts,
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
just decided to put screws into the stainless steel sink to keep it down.....they have already rusted. He caulked the sink in a big hot mess which extended over an inch in some places on to the counter top. I realize when he doesn't know how to properly do something he wings it, not always with the best results.
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was was paid 1/2 up front for this part of the rest upon completion. I admit I didn't complain about the work,
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was such a nice guy all ready to schmooze and I just wanted to let it go. The screws only began to rust after use- and by them no more

.
Next
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was to do the work my husband needed, to put up TWO hanging stock shelves in a warehouse. After the first estimate the size of the shelves was adjusted and a price was agreed upon. He was paid half and the job began. He built the shelves and hung the first one. He said he needed a second person and a different ladder to hang the second due to it's location and he would be back to finish the job. He asked for the the rest of his money, my husband said he preferred to wait until the job was finished but
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
promised to be back on Tuesday (Aug.7) to finish. Now we have a problem.
Monday I get an email that he hurt himself jumping down off the first shelf he built. He wrote that he would come Thursday (Aug. 9).
On Friday, he sent us an email apologizing for not Showing up the day before- that he had minor surgery resulting from the jump and that he was so sorry but that he would call us by Monday. On Monday we got an email that he had been in a car accident and he would be back in business by Wednesday(Aug 15). To both emails my only response was one of sadness for him. On Thursday, I emailed
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to ask when he'd be back to finish and that we hoped he was better. He responded with - "it really isn't my fault". Who was blaming him? On Aug. 23, I emailed
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to ask how it was going, no response. Aug. 27th another email asking him to call with an update, he said he needed another week off. He asked to come the following Monday- I said we'd be closed for Labor Day but that Tues. or Wed. would be great. No word, no show. We figured he needed more time. September 12, my husband called him but no call back so on Sept. 13th I wrote that we were very sorry for all his bad luck but we really needed the shelf up- could he send someone to finish the job or give up back some of the money to hire someone else to do it.
He emailed back that he has stage one cancer and that by the way- "he didn't owe us anything that he he was only paid for the work he did" ?????? Why would we have waited - a month- for him to come back if we hadn't paid him for the work. He said to read the bottom of his estimate that it wasn't a quote only an estimate...there was "no dishonor" on his part. So done with this guy.
Well, I must respond to
North Hollywood Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's comments below. First of there were no problems with the building, period. As far as being "baked", I really must laugh at the mention of this-
