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.

The contractor arrived on time and performed the initial tasks well. The last job to be performed - installing a new faucet in the kitchen - was were the problem started. Due to the nature of our sink location in the kitchen (in a free-standing center island) the installation required hose extensions due to the fact that the hot and cold water feeds came up through the floor. We agreed that the contractor would go to the hardware store to purchase the required parts as a part of the four hours we paid him to be there. Since there is a Home Depot 15 minutes away in Fair Oaks, we were absolutely sure he could go, buy the parts and return with plenty of time to finish the job in under four hours. After the contractor was gone for over 2 hours, we called the company. They gave us some excuse about a trip to the hardware store always being at least an hour, which would have been perfectly acceptable to us. Over 2 hours was not. A few minutes after the phone call the contractor miraculously re-appeared. We took the parts he had purchased and sent him on his way. The company called back a few minutes later and after some discussion decided to "let us have an additional hour" to finish the faucet install. We assumed the contractor would be back that day. He did not return. It's been a week now and no one from the company has contacted us. And to top the whole experience off, the receipt for the parts that the contractor bought showed he purchased them at the Home Depot in SEVEN CORNERS. You actually have to deliberately drive past at least 3 hardware stores between Fair Lakes and Falls Church.

It was difficult reaching
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, but he is a nice man and offers a reasonable service. Unfortunately, he did not closely supervise his crew and they started work in the wrong room inside the house. The finished job (inside and out) was mediocre, and the front yard was an absolute mess (paint, screws, wrappers, plants which had been stepped on). The screw covers were not placed on one shutter when the job was "finished", and it took over 6 weeks for them to come back and finish the job and pick up their final payment. I should have read the reviews on Angie's List before hiring them.

Overall the work was done well. The light fixtures/electrical work was excellent. They did an excellent job replacing and matching the hardwood floors. They discovered underlying termite damage in the basement which they were flexible enough to also add on and repair. Unfortunately they had to come back and redo the coating on the floor due to some grit getting into the finish but the end product is excellent. The fix to the wall damage in the laundry room was done well also. The bath room refurbishment was a little less successful. Unfortunately they missed an area of damaged wall above the entry door and had to return to fix that. In the end the bathroom work was done well. We never had any problems with getting timely correction which is much better service than we have had with other contractors in the past. They seemed to want to do the job well which was refreshing.
They came on time as promised and were very professional in dealing with the work and us. Overall it was a good experience. We bought a package of hours. They were very responsive setting up an appointment and going through the work. In the end we agreed on a package of work that fit the hours that we purchased. There was some ambiguity in the agreement but in the end we are satisfied with the service performed and the amount charged. We would be willing to use this contractor again.

We 'bought' a coupon for 4 hours of handyman work . We needed a few things done such as installing a new toilet paper holder, repairing some dry wall (6'x4') and painting that area, securing an outside outlet, and putting in a mailbox. The gentleman who came to give us an estimate wanted to charge us $2500 in addition to our $199 4 hour payment that we purchased via Angie's
List. He also told my husband "we are not hurting for work". When I called the office to say that we did not want to pay that much and that we would just want them to do the mailbox, the woman said she would email or call me back that day. I never heard back. I called four days later and after being on hold for a while, I was told that the soonest they could come out to install the mailbox and post would be

23rd. (We purchased the coupon in May, they came to give us an estimate on 6/18, and now they tell us they could not schedule us until 7/23). Do not use them for handyman services, I do not think they care to provide what was advertised. They want big bucks for small projects.

was extremely responsive when we first contacted him. He came out the same day to take a look at what was going on. Once he had the

to see, he told us that he would get us a quote. A week went by and we hadn't heard anything. I contacted him asking when we would get the quote and he kept telling me that he would get it to me soon. Finally, he told me he would get it to me by a certain date. That date came and went. A few days later, I contacted him and asked him to either let us know if he was unable to do the work or provide us the actual quote. It has been over a week and I have not heard back from him.

The repairman showed up promptly on time. Though we had shopped and gotten everything
Fairfax Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
quoted for us, the repairman needed just a few different items, so we ran out and got those. He was there working for most of the day and did an exceptional job. You can't tell that there was ever any damage in the ceiling, there was barely a mess in the kitchen (just some dust) and we LOVE the result. I will definitely be calling them in the future for any work I may need completed on my house. I've already asked for a quote on some additional work. The price (I had used an Angie's List Big Deal coupon) was very fair for the services and quality provided. If you need anything worked on in your home, I'd definitely recommend these folks!

Had two workers for 2 days, and it was great! The guys showed up early, stayed late, and worked hard. Our patio looks great now, and it looked horrible before. It was a job that had been half-finished for 7 - 8 years. They finished the job and got rid of most of the debris that had been sitting in our back yard the whole time the project had been on hold. They patched drywall, re-taped, and mudded the drywall in the garage, and painted it.
