I appreciated
Stillwater Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's willingness to push some other work back in order to rescue me. I currently live in the basement apartment of my duplex and have only have 1 bathroom. The remodel that was supposed to be finished in a weekend wound up taking a month when all was said and done. However, it dragged out for weeks because after initially coming over quickly, he subsequently showed up even an hour late, or not show up at all, pushing me back a day or even a week because of his other work.
The first job he did was installing floor tile with epoxy grout. He assured me he had experience with this, but he didn't fill the grout lines all the way and left it unfinished, even though there was another unopened container of grout to use. He also failed to measure the opening for the toilet, and cut the tile wrong. There is a large gap at the back of the toilet base on either side which he ended up filling with shiny caulk and it looks terrible. His offer to fix this was for me to buy a new toilet that is a different size, and he would not charge me to install it. I find that suggestion ridiculous. He installed the pedestal sink without leveling it, and it leans 3/4"-inch to one side.
He installed the tub/shower hardware without leveling that, so the shower rod coming up from the tub leans to one side, as does the tub faucet. He also assured me he would attach the ceiling

that supports the shower surround with the heaviest possible anchor, but he simply brought in a cheap plastic anchor which came loose in a month.

reattached the door trim, cutting it to account for the additional floor height with the new tile. However, he did not match up the
Stillwater Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
at the top of the door and left a big gap. He also put new hinges on the door and reattached it, but didn't adjust it properly, so it always swings wide open when not latched.
When he came to repair my water heater he told me it was no big deal, and shouldn't take more than 30-60 minutes. However, he stayed for several hours because he couldn't figure out how to drain the unit for quite some time. He finally got it to drain but it poured water all over my floor because he didn't have the drain hose attached, and I had to use good bathroom towels to mop it up. Then he discovered he'd forgotten the tool he'd need, so I had to run to the hardware store and buy one. I asked if he would replace my second floor toilet mechanism while I was gone so that he would have something to do, but when I returned I found he'd replaced the mechanism in the main floor toilet instead! He said, "I opened it up and there was nothing wrong with it, but I replaced it anyway" instead of calling to clarify. I had to buy another mechanism and pay someone else to replace the one that actually was faulty on the second floor.
I found his work unsatisfactory, he forgot tools several times, and he still insists that I owe him money. Although he assured me that he guarantees his work, when I told him what needed changing along with detailed photographs, he did not respond. I have paid him $800 at this point which I feel is too much. It is going to cost me a lot to hire someone else to correct his mistakes, especially the floor tile. I have hired handymen from craigslist who did better work and charged half the hourly rate.
Based on this experience I doubt I would use Angie's List again.

This is the third time I have used
Stillwater Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and am extremely satisfied with their work ethic, professionalism and exceptional attention to detail.
Stillwater Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
even shoveled the sidewalk and steps before he came into the house!! He removed the large mirror and painted behind it when I assumed he would paint around it. He worked quickly and efficiently and I couldn't find a single splatter of paint which has happened with other painters.
People, you need use

came and assesed the work done to date, worked out what still needed to be done, gave us alternative and more practical ideas / advice e.g. to have a 5' rather than 4' shower base to accommodate stool, how to get matching cupboard doors, etc.
Was then patient with us as we waited for delivery of new base, which subsequently broke and he returned on our behalf to Menards / getting us full refund, then advised on better product
Stayed late and worked long and hard to complete the job on final day (a Friday)

Although the work was good, frankly, I was shocked at the price. A friend was acting as my property manager at the time, so I think it's possible that
Stillwater Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
might have had the idea that whatever they thought they could fix in my rental house, they should go ahead and fix, regardless of the time or cost. The original work for which they were hired was to install locks and to do the drywalling.
Stillwater Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
then found several other things they thought should be fixed. The total amount exceeded my expectations by over $1200. Over fifty hours were supposedly spent at the house doing multiple "repairs." Again, perhaps, most of the confusion regarding cost might have come from my communication with my property manager and what she thought was reasonable to approve. On the other hand, I have, in the past, had good work done on this house (built in 1936) by another handyman that has involved painting all of the rooms, repairing windows, creating a covered area at an egress window to keep rain out, repairing a banister, replacing a screen, and planing a sticking window that never totaled more than $2000.00.

The project went very well. I contacted

in the mid-morning on Friday and left a message that we needed a window sill repaired on my mother's house. He contacted me within a few hours and we arranged to meet at the house that same afternoon at 4PM.

discussed the situation with my brother and they agreed on the procedural plan and price. Because it was cold out that day,

wasn't sure when he could do the job but assured us he would be done with it within one week.

needed to wait for a predicted warm-up before starting so that he could paint the repair. On Sunday it was warm enough and he was there to do the work. He completed the job including the painting within a few hours. It looked very good and we were all pleased with the result.

We have him come back whenever he has an open slot. He is just brilliant and figures out the problem areas and his attention to detail is simply incredible. He is only $40/hour. What a find!

was prompt, knowledgeable, and a great problem solver. He went with me to find a new garage door and managed to install it and refit the brass fittings while not interfering with the security system.
The gate he built on our deck has finally made it safe for our dog! He's happy, too.

fit the jobs to our very changeable spring weather and managed go get the painting in between rain storms.
He did everything with a great degree of professionalism and left each work space as clean as when he started.
I'm working on a new list and will definitely be calling him again.

Very thorough. Explained process before, during and after. Returned, very graciously, a 2nd time to tweak a small area in shower that did not set properly the first visit, at no charge. Great workmanship and work ethic!
