Recent Review: Our experience with Rick was nothing short of outstanding. He called early in the evening prior to the day we scheduled his work in order to review tasks and ensure he would have the tools and materials needed. He also confirmed the time he would arrive and did indeed arrive on schedule that morning. He worked quickly and efficiently through our list of tasks in order of priority. Rick is a skilled craftsman who can tackle a wide variety of jobs. His experience and expertise surprised us, given his low hourly rate. We have hired several other handymen in past years, at much higher hourly rates, but continued looking for someone we would actually want to hire a second time. Either the work was done slowly (when paying by the hour, we've found that often to be the case) or not done to last. With Rick, however, this was definitely not the case. He worked steadily the entire day and stayed late to finish what he was working on--and for the extra time, he charged the same hourly rate for which we purchased the Big Deal. As long as Rick is in business, he will be the handyman we hire, even if we have to wait for his busy schedule to clear. We've learned that when Big Deals are offered, especially at this low hourly rate, the schedule fills up quickly. Be patient and wait for an opening, as Rick is well worth it. You will get a professional, skilled craftsman who is quick, reliable, trustworthy, and stays on task.
