Carol Stream Handyman Services Reviews

"We had a damaged bedroom door that needed to be replaced. Becasue all our doors are prefinished we decided to have one of the doors from downstairs moved to the upstairs bedroom to replace the damaged door, and a new door installed downstairs that will be refinished by the kitchen cabinet refinisher that is coming out next week.

came out and gave us an estimate to move one door and install a new one which we thought was very reasonable. In additon to installing the doors, he picked up the door from the supplier and brought it to our house which made our life easier. He came out promptly as promised, did the job in a timely fashion and cleaned up when he was done. Job well done."
"Set up appointment for estimate during my initial call. Estimate was clear and detailed, with repair and replacement options discussed. On installation day, they showed up on time and performed the work timely. Received thorough explanation of new door and opener after installation. Very professional throughout the process."
"It was a lot of work, and of course, since it is the only full bathroom in the house, we were without a shower. But they did a beautiful job and were very considerate of our situation and rigged the bathtub so we could at least take a bath when it was safe to do so. I would highly recommend them. The price was more than fair and I was not nickel and dimed to death. The attention to detail is outstanding. "
"I don't remember the name of the contractor, but he was friendly and thorough. The contractor was able to order the parts and offered to perform the work even though we were out of town on the weekend the parts came in. The work site was left relatively clean, and all the work we asked for was done on time and well."
"Spoke with ''

'' and agreed on a day and time for him to come out. That morning at 8:00 he called stating his power went out and would arrive in 1 1/2 hours. 6 hours later (no additional calls) he arrived at our home. Stated he had been lost."
"He downloaded the directions from the company website so he would have an opportunity to review them in advance. This saved time when he arrived to put the shed together. He was polite, professional, on time and was a pleasure to work with. He is coming back out to do some additional work for me."
"The handyman was on time, quoted the job and the time span to do the job became twice as long. The name, home expert, leads one to believe they are the experts and once on site should know the length of time to do the job. When he arrived he said it was a 2 man job and he needed to reschedule. We asked him if he would

the floor and he said yes, it was a 3-4 hour job. He made 2 trips to purchase items, he did not have a shovel or tools to use. He used the claw of a hammer to dig in the dirt. As he was wrapping up I asked if the floor was level, it wasn't so he had to redo part of the work. The man in the office told me they would take care of everything. The 3-4 hour job became 7 hours. I am disappointed the ''experts'' 3-4 hour job became twice as long. As he was totaling the bill he didn't take the 5% off, even though I had a coupon, and he told me the materials were $314. When I asked to see the receipts the materials suddenly became $89. I did sign the form saying I was satisfi"
"I purchased a Big Deal which entitled me to a day's work by the contractor (6 1/2 hrs of actual on-site work.) Ibro, the owner, is a pleasant young man and was easy to work with. Although he was busy, we scheduled a time and discussed how much work could be done in the time allotted. The contractor showed up as promised with a helper. We had agreed that he would install crown molding around the ceiling of the living room and install a duct extension and vent so that we could heat the enclosed back porch of our house. We provided the molding, and the installation was done perfectly.
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.
"I purchased a deal so that we could get a couple of important things done around the house, since I don't so much have time to do this stuff anymore. Also I'm terrible at drywall.
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.

did a great job. Arrived a little early and was done in record time. I was SO relieved to get these items off my "to-do" list!
Actually, a new list started shortly after he left. I started doing them and then decided it would take

less time to do the work and he would do a much better 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!
