Overall, the service was great. I had to get several holes repaired after getting a new power cord installed behind the walls. Sadly, the repairs were not completely finished within the 4 hour time frame, due to the job being bigger than originally thought. I do feel like the job could have been finished or more complete if the service provider had brought a second heater to accelerate the drying of other areas of the mud. The service provider did show up on time and I would recommend using this company again.

Provided pictures and specs of the storm door and based on them was provided a time frame of 2 to 3 hours for installation. They were able to accommodate moving my installation time. The tech arrived on time and ready to work. He was very professional and did a very good job. My wife monitored him and thought he could have been done a little earlier to prevent a third hour. She said he opened and closed the door a bunch. He was working on trying to have the door not slam shut. When I came home I noticed the same issue and did some research and learned it was an issue with the door closer. The install tech spent extra time trying to get the door to shut properly. Probably cost us an hour of labor but overall we we're pleased with the job. I would use House Doctor's again.

Plumber/Technician arrived 2 hours after the 1-3pm appointment; stated he was unaware of the scheduled time. Installed the garbage disposal in a reasonable time. Turned the disposal on demonstrating its functioning and noise level. However he did not test with dish washer interface. Subsequent uses of the dish washer caused an excessive amount of water through the overflow drain rather than through the garbage disposal drain. The excessive overflow could not be captured in the sink causing water to flow onto the kitchen counter. Assuming the disposal was properly installed by the

, I discussed drainage issue with the hardware associate where I purchased the unit. He advised that a novice mistake is failure to remove a drain plug from the garbage disposal prior to installation. I had my regular plumbing service troubleshot the problem. He felt inside the disposal and said a drain plug is still in the unit. The disposal had to be uninstalled to remove the plug and reinstalled. The plumber started the dish washer, let water fill for a minute, then pressed the cancel/drain button to demonstrate the overflow remedy. The rework nullified any savings from the Angie List sale/discount.

After WEEKS of extremely overpriced estimates, rude sales people trying to up-sell me on things I didn't need, sexist condescending salesmen and contractors talking down to me, numerous "no-shows" and people who refused to do the job because I was unwilling to spend the amount of money they wanted me to....
I took a

and called
Alexandria Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. It was the best decision I ever made. They were friendly, courteous, helpful and rushed to help me fix the repairs I had been trying to get done most of the summer. Trust me, they will be the first one's I call for ANYTHING!

who did my intake was courteous, helped me work through the most cost effective solution and found the PERFECT professional to do the work. She really heard the frustration in my voice after speaking to so many lousy contractors and companies and did what good companies and businesses do - she made me a happy LOYAL customer. She even called me to update me that there "might" be a

of rain on my scheduled appointment day and suggested we move the appointment up before the rain was expected to come. Talk about Professional! I couldn't even get a call back from some of these so called best companies in the area.
She was responsive, communicative, and made the billing seamless and easy. The price I was quoted was what I was charged and I got copies of all of my paperwork emailed to me even before I had hung up the phone. She took the time to follow up after the job was done and was just delightful. And it gets better...
The contractor,
Alexandria Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was a DREAM! He showed up on time, quickly fixed everything and was professional, courteous, helpful and friendly. He is good at what he does and can do ANYTHING. It was the best experience I had ever had dealing with repairs and contractors. He was incredible and does amazing work.
They both made me feel like my little project was important and really took care of me. I will NEVER go to anyone else. And I have referred them to all of my friends and couldn't brag enough about how pleased I am with them and their work. I am literally going to schedule the remainder of the work I need done today.
I am actually looking forward to getting more things done because I FINALLY found people I can trust who do EXCELLENT work.
I love

I tried your BIG DEAL listing drywall repaired and signed up for the first time. I needed two different areas repaired. One caused by a water leak in a difficult area and a area in a bedroom ceiling about 3x5 feet . The ad was replied to in the time it said in the ad. They said they would be there the next morning at 9 o,clock window time . They were here and completed the work . They worked fast and clean and in a professional manner. They put a smooth finish on the areas and will not take much more prep to paint with a flat and a finish. The two professionals,

The handyman came at exactly 7:00am on the dot. He came in started working. He accessed the vanity problem I was having, he gave me some good advice on what to do. He completed the drywall repair with no issues, did not have any issues answering my questions and concerns.

is what you want your neighborhood handyman to be. He is so helpful, professional, and knows his stuff.
Our fridge had a weird odor coming from the back, and we thought it might have been a rotting rodent... so we initially called exterminators and appliance repair guys. Neither would come out as the exterminators didn't want to deal with getting electrocuted and the appliance guys didn't want to deal with a rodent. So, we decided to try our luck by calling a handyman. Found
Alexandria Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
on Angie's List and he said, absolutely, sure I'll come out and see what the issue is.
He took apart the back of the fridge and we all looked and there was no rodent, and honestly couldn't find the source of the odor (which has since gone away). We felt bad making him come all this way to find nothing but he was totally cool, and said while he was already at the house, why doesn't he do a quick inspection of our house to see if everything was in tip top shape. He was up front that he's not a home inspector but that he usually can spot some issues.
He checked all of our plumbing and electrical, answered our non-stop questions, found the source of our basement water issue (a leaky water heater!) that saved us thousands of dollars of unnecessary waterproofing, found that one of our curtain rods was loose and improperly installed and then proceed to take it down and re-install for us. Basically he was so incredibly helpful and kind to us in the hour that he was at our house. The best part? He only charged us $150 for everything.
Great, honest and decent guy. Can't believe how lucky we were to find him on Angie's List. Will definitely call on

did fantastic work. He was professional, called personally to discuss the details of the job, and was very accommodating. We were out of town when he did the work;

does very good work and when you have questions or concerns, he will come back until he gets it to your satisfaction. He is very personable and responds to E mails daily. My deck looks beautiful and his attention to detail on woodworking and painting projects has been excellent. He rebuilt my wood trim around doorway (front and rear) with wood composite that will require little maintenance and probably outlast the house! I have used him several times for projects. Sometimes he has emergencies that come up with his other staff, that might cause him to leave for a few hours and then return, but he always comes back to finish the job. He is also very honest and trustworthy. Recently he refinished and repainted my front wrought iron railings and did a fabulous job.
