Handyman reviews in Stillwater
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
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.
People, you need use
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)
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.
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
Try an annual plan and if you want to cancel in your first year, we'll refund you 110%
