Carol Stream Handyman Services Reviews
We also requested a heating vent be installed so that our back porch, where the laundry is located, will not freeze during the winter. This was done less perfectly. Several holes were sawn into the drywall until the final location of the duct was determined. The holes that were sawn were also not square and had to be corrected. Because we had agreed to enclose the ductwork in drywall, this created additional work for us.
Also, the wrong vent was selected. It should have been a right angle vent, instead of a straight vent. By installing the wrong vent, it caused the ductwork to stick out too far from the wall to encase it properly. Instead of exchanging for the right vent, the contractor left the wrong one in the wall, and I finally had to exchange it and reinstall it properly. The work took a little over 4 hours, so there should have time to make the necessary corrections. However, the contractor rushed off to his next job, and we ended up correcting the work ourselves.
It seemed that the contractor was over committed and rushed through the job. The crown molding was done great so I think that if he took as much time to do the second job, it would probably have been done fine as well.
The job involved a handyman and an apprentice. Unfortunately I forgot both their names, but they did the job right and in a timely fashion - roughly 2 1/2 hours. Now the room and garage look like they ought to.
Actually, a new list started shortly after he left. I started doing them and then decided it would take job than me. He came back on 8/2/13 and installed 3 glide tracks for the closet doors, added extension chains to the ceiling fan, installed a new faucet, hung 2 large wall shelf units, a towel bar, 2 new door knobs. Again, he was done in record time and I can finally say MY project is done thanks to his help!
