17, I sent an email and pictures via Angie’s List to
Services regarding a request for service. I received a reply via email and voicemail from a worker named
. We traded phone messages and connected the next day, Friday. The job was to make adjustments to a strike plate on the doorjamb so that door locked properly.
said that his schedule was pretty full but that if he could have the flexibility to come either Monday-
21 or Tuesday-
22 between the hours of 10am to 4pm (I suggested these hours) that he would ring my tenant an hour before he came, and that the job should take less than an hour. We both agreed on the timing and I gave him my tenant’s phone number, and promptly notified my tenant.
contacted my tenant on Monday-
21 in the afternoon and said that he would be there on Tuesday-
22, sometime between 10am to 4pm. Since that call, neither I nor my tenant has heard anything from
. He was a no-call/ no-show
on Tuesday and has made no attempt to contact either my tenant nor me via phone or Angie’s List email.
I reviewed again
’s ratings and it looks like the bad ratings all come from the company not showing up, or not following up with their customers as promised.
, time is a valuable commodity. As your time is valuable, so is ours. It is just bad business to set appointments and ignore them without a call or an email to your customers. In the future, it is best (not to mention just good business) to let a customer know that you won’t be able to make it as promised. It is important to tell your customer something, as opposed to NOTHING.

I am a new member that use this service and look for vendors to do work for our Company. I want to say that
has been in contact with me back and forth for about a week and a half now and it have been pleasurable talking to him.From the beginning he was honest by telling me that he was very busy,but if I needed something he always offered a time or suggestion to look at the situation,talk to me about.,etc.Today I had an emergency where the pipe burst in a home and he was willing to have his worker come on the other side of town to fix it.I told him that the owner had a person that she normally uses,but he was still willing to be on standby which was so professional. I told him that I would call him back once the owner made her decision as the water was turned off at that time,but I guess the time was a little too long for him being a professional, seeing that there was a water leak so he called back and checked up on the situation.I told him the owner went with another plumber and he was just as courteous,responsive and responsible.This has been the most professional vendor I contacted since I became an Angies list member. Thank you for your promptness and professionalism.

The deal details and their website do not identify that they charge an extra charge for Saturday appointments, and their weekday schedule is very limited for someone who works full time. I prefer to use providers that don't have

fees and are available for their potential customers.

I sent a message to him Saturday morning. He was at my house at 4:00 the same day! He is very polite and easy to work with. Will definitely call him again.

The work was done in a professional and timely manner.

was on time and responsive to all of my needs. He was personable and answered all of my questions (even dumb ones). He did extra things on my "revised" to-do list that were not even included in list upon which he based his original estimate. I paid him a bit more than he requested because I did not think that his estimate reflected the quality and quantity of his work. He was hesitant to accept it, but I insisted. He was kind to me, my wife, and my dogs. All in all, a great experience in terms of service and workmanship. I highly recommend

for future jobs and would use him again in a heartbeat if I weren't moving out of state.

He charged in advance for materials and brought all materials and tools to the site. He dug post holes and installed posts in concrete. He treated the wood supports and latticework with polyurethane protective coating. He installed the fence level in a difficult hilly terrain.

I stopped the work temporarily because I had made a mistake when I first told him where one of the posts was to be located. When I called him to return, he filled the hole he had dug in a way that is not visible, and then he installed the post in the correct position.
The fence looks good.

began until he stopped. I had to go and get instructions due to the fact they weren't in the box, he hung pictures while I was gone for about 20 minutes. . He was kind hard working and cared about his work. It was perfect. No complaints here I would hire him and recommend him again to anyone. He was on time Thanks

was very professional from beginning to end. He worked with my schedule arriving promptly and completing the work quickly and expertly. He explained fully what needed to be done and even offered helpful advice on keeping the multiple hose connection trouble free. His work is excellent and very reasonably priced.

Excellent work.
Cortland Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was on time (to the minute), performed the install as expected with excellent quality of work. Every aspect of his work from prep, main task, and cleanup could not have been better. He is a true professional.


He was great. He was very professional and super nice. He was so careful in looking at everything that we asked him to do. He took his time to explain the situation for each job. He provided the best solution for fixing and/or completing the job. There were just a few items that he needed to get at the hardware store, otherwise he had all of the materials that he needed. We will definitely use his services again. It is important to us to feel comfortable with someone we do not know in our home. We are very pleased with the work that was done and the quality of the work.
