While the price was a little higher than I expected, the service from
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
made it all worth it. He was very professional, yet friendly while completing high quality work. We had a wide range of projects to complete and
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was skilled to complete all of them including hanging a medicine cabinet, large mirror, dartboard, garage shelves, and TV. I would highly recommend
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
for other projects to friends and family. Appreciate getting quality service!

As stated above. In the Poconos you never know what you're going to get. Very impressed. Worth every penny.

I purchased the big deal for $699.
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
came out to the house and I selected a project, which was to demo the old cabinet (nicknamed "the monster"), then install a cabinet/shelf for an over-the-range microwave.
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
took pictures and measurements. After a couple of weeks, he contacted me with different options. He supplied me with pictures and diagrams, and was very helpful (and patient!) while I figured out how I wanted to proceed with the project. I decided to go with a custom cabinet - I still need to stain it. They also made the ventilation system operational, which hadn't been working since I moved into the house. At the end of the project,
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
submitted his time log. I ended up with a credit balance, which he offered to refund or hold for another project. The craftsmanship was top-notch, and I couldn't be happier!

I let the positive reviews sway me and ended up experiencing a lot of the issues raised in the negative reviews. I will absolutely give more credence to them in the future.
I called Mr.
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
on Sunday and we made an appointment for Tuesday at 10:30am. He asked me to call him to remind him on Monday and like other reviewers I found this to be very unprofessional but agreed to do it because of the positive reviews. I explained what I wanted and everything was set.
I called on Monday as requested and he then asked me to call him the following morning to remind him and this was too much for me. I explained I did not see the need for that and started to express that if he needed reminding I would need to go elsewhere at which time he said it was no problem he would be there in the morning.
Mr.
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his assistant
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
were on time and very personable, we discussed the prices of the work I wanted done and they were reasonable so I agreed to have the work done. The first item to be done was to move the video game. There were issues right away and it was clear this was not going to be possible with just the 2 of them as
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
repeatedly expressed. I had some other people onsite working at the time and when they saw him struggling they lent him their dolly and assisted him in getting the machine upstairs. Even though the other people did half the work he still charged me full price for the task. He also put a big gouge in my wall getting it up there and never said a word about it as other reviewers have mentioned.
Next was to fix one ceiling fan and install another. The ceiling fan that needed to be fixed was making a humming noise. We explained to Mr.
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
repeatedly that we felt there was an issue with the variable speed light and fan switches on the wall not the fan itself. He kept saying it was the fan motor. After
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
relocated the fan to the other room the sound was no longer present so we again expressed the idea it was the switches on the wall but he never acted on that. So I was charged for a repair that never happened. After they left we spent $4 for the switches and fixed it ourselves, no more sound.
He also charged me for putting a piece of wood in another place that he did not do because he could not find the right length piece of wood at the hardware store.
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
seemed to do all the work and Mr.
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
took an hour and a half to get a couple of parts from the hardware store that is just 5 miles away. The work
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did was performed satisfactory. The towel rack, the fan installation and the piece of wood between the carpet and the floor.
The one other job Mr.
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did was hang two shelves on the wall that were supposed to be even with each other and one ended up being 1 inch higher than the other. At this point i just wanted him gone and the job over. So I paid him and that was that. Will not be using again.

Pretty busy company. Had to schedule a week out.
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Prior came out and did the work. Nice guy.
I had a leak in a room with carpet and I had to cut away some of the drywall where the water had wicked up. it was maybe15 square feet of repair total.
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
pointed out that one of the studs had been damaged by previous termites so I authorized him to reinforce it. Also, my drywall was 5/8ths as opposed to 1/2 inch which required him to go to home depot.
My first issue is that they charged me for the time to go to home depot and get the drywall. Poor form in my opinion, but I paid it.
Second issue is that I requested the work to be done to the level of "ready to paint."
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
had told my wife that he was going to sand and then told me that he hasn't sanded for 30 years as it's messy. He just
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
the skim coat in. On my final walk through, I couldn't really assess it as it was wet with the skim. When it did dry, I had to sand it to get it to the right finish. If not sanding was the right way to go in repairing drywall, then all the guys in the industry would do it that way, they do not and it's for good reason.
So the price was a bit high and the work took much longer than expected and thus more expensive.
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
stated that was due to the 5/8ths issue. Again, nice fella, helpful comments. cleaned up after himself. But I won't be choosing this company again.

Raccoons built home under my deck through opening and created a flea issue. Mr. Niemetscheck arrived on time. He covered three openings around my deck with wood board and also went under the deck to ensure the animals are out there. He also found a pipe under the deck is broken and fixed it. He took a few photos under the deck to show me the work. He finished the task within two hours. The quality of his work is excellent and he answered all my questions clearly. It was a great experience to work with him.

the
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
showed up on time as expected, sized up the job, and went to Home Depot to pick up some materials. In a short time, he was back to take down the cabinet, repair it, and reattach it to the wall. The job took about 3 hours in total, and was done better than I expected.

was courteous and professional, and it was clear he had significant experience working with cabintets as well. This is the first time I have used

It went well and
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was very professional and did explain the items/fixes in detail. Also, did mention about the do's and don't's after the fix.
Prior to
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's visit, one of the contractors examined the stain on the ceiling because of a one time water leak from bath tub and quoted a higher amount and talked about a bigger project than fixing it right.
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
examined and fixed the issue right away and gave a reasonable quote for the stain removal/dry wall patch needed to fix it. The ceiling stain removal is yet to be done, but the actual source of the issue was identified soon.
The ceiling fan had an incorrect tie rod and the correct set was suggested and fixed within couple of hours. The quality of service is great and I would highly recommend
