Handyman reviews in North Hollywood
My husband found and explained that we needed a 42 inch door to be hung.
The job was supposed to take 5-6 hours at $65 per hour. My husband and I agreed and
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
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
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
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.
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.
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
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 ”
