I purchased the Angie's List deal of four hours of Handyman's services for $99.
It took a while to schedule, firstly, because it was mainly outdoor work, and when we couldn't find a date in the fall, I waited until the spring.After that, the company was very unresponsive when I tried to arrange an appointment. At one point, I offered a three week window when he could pick his four hours and didn't hear from him.
I thought someone would come by ahead of time to discuss what I was looking for, maybe give me an idea of what the time frame would be for the various tasks. But I was only asked for a description of the jobs over the phone. On the scheduled morning, the company still wasn't sure what I was asking or even if they needed a ladder. (They eventually borrowed mine).
The concrete patching started cracking within days of the job. I called the company about this, but they didn't get back to me.
The carpentry work was sufficient, but the work didn't allow my door to close. The workers were in their truck and about to leave when I noticed this.
They didn't bother to cleanup the sawdust.
I don't know why

wants to be on Angie's List, much less offer special deals, when the follow up with such mediacre work.

Everything went very well on installation day.

was here right on time. He completed all the work in the
8 hour time frame despite running into some unexpected problems. The finished projects looked very good
and worked well.

worked steadily all day not even stopping for lunch. The only fly in the ointment was the
fact the original date of installation had to be cancelled because his truck would not start. This cost me a vacation
day but I suppose these things happen. He made up for it on the next scheduled day. Overall, I would use them
again.

Contacted them and received a response but the date they wanted to come out and give us an estimate wouldn't work for us. So I tried contacting them again and no response. Tried again a week later and still no response. Not someone I want to deal with if they couldn't even give me a response. POOR BUSINESS.

We were expecting house guests, and needed to address several minor but obvious areas to repair.

called promptly, came when expected, and: completed all the requested work efficiently, and pleasantly. The work looks fine, and was all ready for our guests.

even used his own tools, and urged me to return the brushes, rollers, etc that I had bought. Will use him again.

Manchester Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
(the owner) was very nice and helpful. I was so happy he works weekends. He spent a little under four hours, including two hardware store trips (it was long due to the rebuild and location...not him). I cannot express how horrible a spot this stairwell is to work in, and even with a normal ladder
Manchester Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
seemed able to handle it well. He worked to find options for us (of hinges and latches) so we could match the existing hardware. He also was the one to suggest the latch at the top of the stairwell so we could reach from the landing. He didn't just want to rush and get the job done, he wanted it right for us. So great customer consideration. The grill sits flush with the opening (my concern) when shut, and he let it hang open a couple times to make sure it would not fall from the ceiling like before...and that it would not hit the light that hangs down in the stairwell.
After: he brought and used a shopvac to clean up. He double checked and made sure there were no

on the walls. We have pets and he was good with them, he even insisted we move the food that was nearby so no dust floated into it. Overall it was a great experience. We are already thinking of a list of new things to have him work on. We know it will cost more in the future, but it is well worth it.

iDavid did an excellent job on all of the work and his price was reasonable. He was flexible and accommodating and was even willing to make a run to the hardware store to buy some needed materials for me. I already made another appointment with him to come back and do some more work. Make sure you schedule a few weeks in advanced. He is very busy.

Not a bad start; was on time and completed the work in a reasonable period of time. I thought this was going to be great.
The problems arose a few weeks after the job was completed. The epoxy floor in the garage began to peel (they had promised that all directions were followed and we even left the car out of the garage an extra day more than recommended to be sure the epoxy was completely set). About the same time, the kitchen cabinets they had painted began to peel.
After contacting them about the problem, it took another week to get an response. A date was set for them to come and look at the garage floor with the epoxy rep. They never showed up. After several hours I called and he said he was sorry but was busy at a job. I told him I was upset and wanted some action. He gave me another date and time and I asked that he call me with a confirmation prior to coming since I had to leave work to be there and it was a big inconvenience.
I never received a call for that appointment and when I got home from work, I found out he had showed up and completed the assessment of the floor without me.
I didn't receive a call until days later and he proceeded to blame me for driving onto the floor too soon but that the rep had agreed to provide new epoxy and that he would do the labor for free (how nice!).
Now, 3 months later, I still have had no contact with this so-called professional and have decided to buy the epoxy myself and do the work myself. I frankly never want to hear this guys voice again.
The cabinets on the kitchen continue to peel and I've had to re-paint sections and then do a gloss coating to keep them from peeling.
This guy pretends to know and be an expert on everything. To me, he's the proverbial
Manchester Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
-of-all-trades and master of none. I was also extremely unhappy with his lack of listening skills. He pretends to listen and then does exactly the opposite. Super frustrating!
Finally, I got the feeling that he has a chip on his shoulder about anyone telling him what to do.
