The handyman arrived on time without a ladder. He was very courteous and performed almost everything on the list I had sent
. I had a light that was 20 to 25 feet up and needed it taken out to see the wattage on the bulb and then put the bulb back. The handyman told me that he had not been informed that he needed a ladder even though I had sent my list over a week in advance via Angies list and direct email. I was told that the owner would be bringing the ladder later and then later told me they had something else to work on. So while it wasn't a big item on my list it still aggravated me a little and I had to mention it.
Overall, I was very please, even though it may not sound like it from the above paragraph. The handyman was busy the full 8 hours and worked h****** everything we had on the list. He seemed knowledgeable and keep me informed as he went along. I would use them again.

Provider arrived on time. Reviewed the work and provided estimate.
He also suggested fixes to some problems from his experience.

He needed some material so he picked them up. Finally was done post lunch.

Overall a good experience with a professional

Overall, fine. Thought the pricing was on the higher end, but at least they show up and are professional. They had to come back and fix a few minor things, but they were responsive and completed the jobs to my satisfaction.

I had a terrible, terrible, terrible experience with

. I would not recommend them to anyone. Please do yourself a favor and go elsewhere. The technician did not get to most things on our list and 2 out of the 3 jobs that he did do we're not done correctly.

When the technician arrived, he was complaining that he was tired and said that he wouldn't be able to get to everything on our list.

, ok. Then he walked through all of the jobs with my husband and explained that he would go to Home Depot to buy the necessary supplies for US to complete since he wouldn't have time. To make matters worse,

adds a certain cost percentage to the items purchased for the customers. We ended up paying an ADDITIONAL $200 on TOP of the $400 base fee for the four hours of service...I should add that 1 hour was spent AT HOME DEPOT getting us supplies for the jobs he wasn't able to complete. This is highway robbery. The technician completed minimal jobs on our list and one of his jobs was done so poorly that it fell apart in a week. I called to complain and I was told that the technician would come back out to fix the problem. I expressed that I did not want the same technician to come back - but apparently that's their procedure. I declined.

I made a complaint and completed a follow-up survey about this service and I was never contacted. Very disappointing.

Spectacularly! Time was of the essence, and

and his crew won the competition over five other firms, on both timeliness and cost. We ended up having to substantially increase the scope of work originally planned, and

I was contacted within the same day that I sent an email to them via Angie's List. They came out and gave me an estimate right away and I felt the price was very reasonable. One week later, the work was done and it looks great. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs painting services. It's a very friendly, yet professional family business.

arrived early and immediately helped us prioritize our many household projects. Those jobs he couldn't finish in the alloted time we had purchased, he gave excellent and patient advice to my wife and I on how to complete, and even provided pointers as we worked alongside. We learned a tremendous amount. Each project he attacked with artistic skill and professional expertise.
- He fixed my lousy patch job with the hole in the ceiling so that you cannot tell there was ever a problem. Better yet, he showed me what I did wrong and how I could do it better next time. He even adjusted the light fixture to be more in the center of the room.
- He fixed our amateurish crown molding installation, giving our living room a very polished and finished look. Additionally he recommended better ways to paint the molds so that the details and features would have more of a POP.
- His patch to our garage window saved us HUNDREDS of dollars. Our original solution was to replace the windows, a fix we were putting off until we had saved enough money. He creatively found a way to replace the rotting wood and buy us at least another two or three years of use before replacing the windows.
- He fixed our doors so they would shut properly, again saving us about a hundred dollars in material and preparation costs.

went above and beyond in is handyman work for our house. His work was exemplery, and his advice was great. That means a tremendous amount to my family. We have finally found a handyman company we can genuinely trust.
We are military. We move frequently. This is our home, leaving it to the care of renters means we must have a local handyman to handle those little emergencies that always crop up with a home. we've found our handyman company in Moss's Home Services. They have definitely earned our repeat business.
Oh, and

is always on time, always gets right to work, and does exactly what is discussed - never an unpleasant surprise. We have used him 7-8 times in the last year and a half, and have never been disappointed. The first job he did for us was to install a dog door and an outdoor light fixture, up to the last job, which was a custom installation of applied mouldings in a two story foyer. He is very pleasant to work with, and very good at communicating exactly what to expect.

and his crew were very professional. They answered all my questions and addressed my few concerns. I am very picky - their work in my opinion was exceptional. When taking the final walk through they even pointed out and fixed some things I missed. I would definitely hire them again and recommend them highly/

After calling J&W, I was scheduled promptly for an estimate. The estimator was very polite and listened to what I had in mind for the 3-hour deal. He did not try to upsell me on any additional services. He promptly called the scheduler and I was given a timeframe for 3 days later. The technician showed up promptly as scheduled that morning and got straight to work. My only complaint would be that, even though the primary task was to replace a garbage disposal, the technician showed up without any plumbers putty. Having to pack up an infant and a 2-year old to run to Home Depot was not that big of a deal, but that's the one negative from what otherwise was a tremendously positive experience. After finishing the garbage disposal in about 90 minutes, the technician set about helping to install an address plaque and to install a locking mechanism for a wood gate. Noticing that the gate was not shutting cleanly, he recommended trimming a little off the bottom before installing the lock. All around, great effort, saved me a lot of headaches. Would gladly use J&W again.
