came out to the house personally and provided a free estimate. We scheduled the date for the work on 7 February. I gave a B rating on punctuality, since the workers arrived that day 30 minutes past the end of the two hour window for arrival. However,
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did an outstanding job performing all the nit-noid items of work that needed to be done around the house. The main work involved replacing a section of drywall on a bathroom ceiling below the toilet that had leaked in a bathroom the floor above. They were very careful to remove the old drywall and complete this repair without damaging the decorative border that meets right at the ceiling plane. We could not replace the border as that pattern is no longer available.

taped and finished the drywall and painted it without a

of it ever being damaged and with absolutely no joints showing. Perfect job. While

worked on the ceiling,
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
tackled most of the other repairs to include re-caulking bathtub and sink in bath on 2nd floor, re-caulking lavatory on 1st floor, repairing various cracks in drywall throughout the house, and performing some shower re-caulking as warranty work from their previous work in August 2013. This company performs all work with excellence, and they waste no time. They get the job done in one day. I believe their prices are more than reasonable for the high quality and expediency of their work. See my other review after they did work for me in August 2013. I definitely will call on them again in the future.

"The quality of the work was good. What wasn't was they grossly underestimated the time required to do what we asked, so we ended up not getting some of the work done we wanted to do. They told me the estimator would do the work, but 2 other people showed up. They were nice and competent, but not the person we had met previously. I would not again hire someone to do work with an open-ended pricing schedule: i.e., not knowing how much time the job was going to take. I ended up paying $88 each for 2 people to go to the store for 2 hours. That's $352. I bought some supplies based on their advice, but it wasn't enough, so I paid for 2 people to go to the store (again) for 1 hour to make up for their mistake. That's $176. If they gave me a fixed price estimate, I would use them again, but not with this pricing structure.

"They were on time and professional as always - diagnosed the hot water heater, determined that the unit was functioning properly all heating elements and components were in working order, and there was no leaks or damage to the water heater. Because the hot water heater a 2008 w/12 year warranty has usable time left on it - I decided to wait and see what happened. (And to really pay attention to how long my kids are in the shower!). Paying the small fee to confirm that the unit didn't need to be replaced easily saved me 800-1000. Very glad I called. Once again,
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
helped me maintain my house, provided excellent service and most importantly prevented me from spending money I didn't have to. When it truly is time to replace the unit, they'll be my first call.

"I have used Mr

before for a project and he was the first person I thought of to do this project for me.
Mr.

came out gave us a written estimate. He was always on time and even brought treats for the dog! All the work was completed in a timely manner. The actual cost came in less than his estimate.

"I contacted the provider via phone and discussed the project details and pricing. We set a date and time.
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
arrived on time. We reviewed the projects again with respect to priorities,materials and the designated locations for each project. He checked with me after installation of the first shelf to ensure it was what I wanted before he proceeded further.
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was very professional, and completed all projects efficiently. He even noticed a doorknob that needed tightening, showed it to me, and tightened it for security.
Great service, good pricing. Would use this provider again.

"Will and his crew were there when they said they would be, were very fastidious about covering everything during demolition, covering my wood floors during the entire project, and cleaning up every night when they quit work. They were unfailingly polite and checked with me many times during the project to get my okay before proceeding with a particular step. Everything was done to a very high standard and I am very pleased with the outcome.

sent "

" to perform the work and I could not have been more pleased with this professionalism and the quality of his work. I had purchased the 'Big Deal" for 3 hours of work, but happily added and paid for an extra hour once I saw how diligently
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was working to get the items on my list done.
Some advise : 1) have more jobs in mind than you think can reasonably be accomplished in the time frame so you can extend if the work is moving along quickly; 2) have ALL the materials necessary for the jobs so you don't end up paying for drive time to Home Depot!

"I selected
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
of Mister Constructor because he had recently run a special on Angie's List, was close by (Annandale), and was able to start and complete my job within a few days of our first discussion.
I am the type of homeowner who enjoys participating in projects and Mister Constructor was perfect for this approach. I selected the option of paying only for labor and providing the materials myself.

designed the structural layout and provided a list of items to purchase, and called it in to the lumber company, so I just needed to provide a credit card to the lumber company and the material was delivered the next day.
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
over-engineered the design, using 2x6 lumber instead of 2x4s, and a giant engineered beam, which I very much appreciated.
Labor was $70 per hour per worker for two workers. No charge for
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
' time, who visited the site each day to inspect their work.
The workers brought the best tools for the job, built the framing square and plumb, and worked diligently throughout the project.
Communication with

in the office by e-mail and cell phone, and with

I passed the

"This was the second job performed by
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
for us. The first was complete painting of the interior of our townhouse, major drywall replacement and repairs, and removal of basement paneling, replacing paneling with drywall and crown molding. This prior work was completed 6/15/2012. Both jobs were done exceptionallly well, completed when promised and at the agreed price. Having known
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
from work done at our son's home, we were confident in hiring him to work on our home. We were NOT disappointed! The workers always arrived on time, or early, and worked a full day, only breaking for lunch. Areas worked on were cleaned every day. I'm so glad
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
finally got his web site up and running so I could place my review on Angie's List, at last!

"I was to provide materials, but what I had was not what the handyman preferred. It would have been better for him to bring materials he liked and was familiar using and just have me reimburse him. He was a little late because of traffic, I tried to reach the office, but it took several calls to get a response. I didn't mind that he was late, but he was in a rush to get everything done and while he did a good job with the weather stripping he did a poor job in the bathroom. I believe it would have been better if he had what he liked to work with for patching.
This is the second handyman service I have used and I have not been happy with either service. I had a very good handyman in the past, but unfortunately, he retired. His level of expertise was so much better and he had been in the building trade for many years before he started his own business. Perhaps my expectations are too great, but I would rather pay more and get someone who did a better job.
