Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was very responsive to my first phone call - even while he was on vacation with his family.
He set up an appointment, showed up when he scheduled. He and
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked

Originally, I called
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to repair a botched vanity install (this was from another provider whom I found on Angies list) where the previous guy had left gaping holes in my dry wall on both sides of the vanity. To this job, I also added on replacing my shower stall (here I wanted all the shower tile and base ripped out as well as replace a non-load bearing wall that the plumbing ran through and replace the shower head and valve) and flooring. Another requirement of mine was to see if we could increase the size of the stand in shower.
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
came by promptly for the estimate and gave an estimate of $5000 (including provisions for materials) to : repair the dry walls on both sides of the vanity, reinstall the vanity, replace the old vinyl flooring with tile of my choice, take down and rebuild the one wall in the standing shower, put in a 2 piece shower stall with new fittings, fully paint the bathroom. This also required that the existing (recently replaced) toilet be removed and reinstalled. The job was estimated for 5 work days.
When the shower stall wall was removed and moved to increase the size of the shower stall, he found that new location will clash with the bathroom vent fan. So, the fan had to be moved as well and since the fan was old and weak anyway, replaced. This also meant that the bathroom ceiling had to be
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
replaced.
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
estimated this additional cost to be another $1000.
The job was started on time - with the new work, he and his partner took 3 more work days to complete. However, his attention to detail was excellent. Every day, before he even entered the house, they would
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
down sheets to protect my carpets. At the end of the day, they would clean up and even vacuum up behind them when they took the sheets out. Also, in the actual job itself, he found that my existing light fixture in my shower was out dated and didnt match my choice of paint/tile. He replaced the light fixture and also without my telling him, replaced the base boards where the wall meets the floor with the closest match to the old wood base boards that were originally there. Further, instead of just patching the gaping holes in the dry wall on both sides of the vanity (as I had asked him to do), he removed the dry wall entirely, moved it back an inch and replaced it - which ensured my vanity with its granite top overhang fit cleanly in that space and we will not need to rip out the wall again in the future if we need to replace the vanity. These were all things he just did as part of the job without me asking him to.
Overall, the job came out very clean, very professional. Yes, in the end we were about 20% over on time and budget on the original plan but it was money well spent and only spent after he provided a good justification (and contrasting this to some other providers who came by for estimates and suggested the same job would cost anywhere from $10,000 - $30,000, the overall price was reasonable). What I really liked was his attention to detail and the fact that he does take a lot of pride in his work and finished product. I also found that
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
is not a guy that does a job and you never hear from him after- he does take time to follow up to see if everything is still good and working fine.
This is my first Angies list review and I don't usually write reviews but as far as I am concerned, this guy is a 2 thumbs up and I figured I should recognize that. Would definitely hire him again.

called on Saturday and asked if he could come over to look the job over on Sunday morning.

arrived, evaluated the job and suggested using 5/8" plywood to provide a 4 ft wide path to the mechanical equipment in the attic.

left to get the material, and when he returned he asked if he could do the job then.

got the material into the attic and proceeded to layout the plywood to provide the walkway to the equipment.

suggested screwing the material down to allow easier removal if we need to get access under the flooring at any point in the future.

performed the task in a few hours, giving a solid foundation down to and around the mechanical equipment for the A/C technicians when they needed to perform maintenance.
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was very concerned about cleaning up and not tracking the blown in insulation all over the house as he got down from the attic .
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's price was extremely fair. He charged me the cost of the material that he payed, giving me the Home Depot receipt ($102.00), and a total bill of $200.00 for everything. As
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
said, "I just want a small piece of the pie, not the whole pie".
Overall,
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did an excellent job. He is punctual, fair and very outgoing. He was a pleasure to work with and talk to.
I definitely have the right guy to do items on the 'honey do' list going forward.

This is the third time I have used this company. They are always prompt, courteous and knowledgeable. They are more interested in getting it right than making a big score. And they will go out of their way to be helpful. Their work is first-rate. I will continue to use them for all those jobs that I just don't know how to do.

Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
(owner of business) inspected all of our support structure under the barn. He then proceeded to beef up columns that were exhibiting corrosion by pouring concrete bases and adding lolly columns where necessary. He also reinforced any wooden cross beams that were rotting. As part of the same job he converted a large barn door that previously had to lifted with a rope to open into an easy swing out door for everyday use. He poured a concrete ramp for the same door to allow machinery to be driven in and out of barn.



While on this job we noted that the workshop attached to our house had a large amount of rotted wood and trim near the roof. He tore out all the rotted wood and replaced it with primed cedar and also did the same for the trim so it matched the original trim. He painted the new wood as final step.



He has done several other carpentry jobs (unfinished and finished carpentry) for us in the past that have been excellent. The main reasons to use
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
are his professional approach, high quality workmanship, reasonable prices and "never leave a mess" attitude.

I am having a hard time grading this fairly. The communication with
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was poor, but the handyman himself was awesome... I had a good response with my initial call to trade wind
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to set up the appointment.
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
asked me to email a list of my projects to her in priority order and include photos if I could, that way the photos could be forwarded to the handyman so he could tell me in advance what materials would be needed and maximize his time there. It all sounded great. I booked the appointment, forwarded off the email and never heard back. I sent an email or two as the day approached, and called the Friday before he was scheduled. I never heard back and had no idea what to buy for my projects. Sunday night I was emailed saying that he wasn't going to come out because some of my projects were outdoor ones and it was going to rain. This was fine as I was still not sure what to buy for the projects. I agreed to a new date as suggested by
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and requested a confirmation for said date. i also again requested a follow up with what I should buy based on my detailed project email. Again, multiple calls a pond voicemails later, no response and no confirmation whether or not the handyman was actually coming out... Fast forward to the tentative date- the handyman showed up (actually contracted from another company), I wasn't even sure he was coming at all. He had not seen or known about any of the projects in advance, did not have my photos or detailed email, and seemed equally frustrated by the poor communication with
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. The handyman himself, however, was VERY good. He started working on a project right away while giving me a shopping list for the other projects. By the time I returned from the home improvement stores, he was finishing up project #1 and had all the materials to tackle the other projects. There were a couple of things that couldn't get finished that day but he left me with specific instructions on the best way to DIY. I would hire the handyman again if I didn't have to go through
Westford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to make that happen. I tried to allow for the fact that they were probably inundated with calls due to the angies list promotion, however this literally was over a period of a couple of months and kind of inexcusable.
