Previous contractor had done a very poor job in doing much repair work throughout the home at a time when I was confronted and dealing with many other stressful situations. I contacted Mr. Burgess at Hard Hat Handyman and discussed some of my needs. He was extremely polite and helpful, as well as reassuring. He discussed each project with me and gave me a very comparable estimate to others I had received. He also, however, gave me a great deal of information on products I could buy and where I might find the best prices for them, things to watch out for, etc. He turned my loft into a finished room with care in the detail of his work, noticing a couple safety issues that he brought to my attention. He was able time wise to adjust his time and charges to accommodate fixing the top of my stairs where the carpet was left unfinished posing a possible tripping hazard and gave me suggestions for the other minor things that I could take care of myself. He was prompt in arrival, cleaned up thoroughly after himself, and was very polite and professional. My kitchen floor was literally destroyed as far as appearance by the previous contractors working on the rest of the home, moving things around, plus it was old and time for replacement. Mr. Burgess again gave me several suggestions about things to consider when purchasing linoleum and cove base. He promptly showed up for this job promptly, too, and when he was gone, I was sooo pleased with my new looking kitchen! My family room has a very high vaulted popcorn ceiling. Again, I supplied materials that I had purchased with suggestions from Mr. Burgess. I know its a ceiling that calls for a lot of cutting in around protruding wood and stone work. It looks brand new. I also needed a bedroom (previously a teens bedroom) repainted to look updated and nice again. I supplied the paint and primer. Mr. Burgess, as expected, arrived promptly as scheduled and taped it all off, primed it, painted it perfectly, took care of trim work, and cleaned up afterward. Because I was not able to be at home at the time of this job, Mr. Burgess called me the same evening to check to see if everything was to my satisfaction. On the previous jobs, he had done a "walk through" with me to check out the room and things he had done and make sure I was pleased with the results. I have greatly appreciated Mr. Burgess friendly and professional suggestions, his fair pricing and his discussions, in advance, of that pricing and what all he would do. I have to say I was more than pleased with the results.
