We couldn't be happier with Gary's work. We had hired someone else to take carpet off a staircase and replaced it with hardwood treads and a new railing, which left us with new wood at the top of the stairs and at the base of the new railing on the upper landing, and existing carpet on the rest of the upper floor that needed to be cut and fitted in around the new wood, including one complicated corner. I called a couple of carpet retailers, but their minimum installer charges started around $175, and so I decided to look further through the List to find someone who just did repairs, if possible, because that's all we needed, and lo and behold on the second page there he was. Gary came out the very next day, cut the carpet to fit beautifully, re-stretched it in numerous places to remove all the bubbles, tacked it down, and installed a shim to raise the level of the carpet where it met the wood at the top of the stairs so there is a smooth transition. After he was done with the major work he spent a lot of time tucking in or cutting off loose threads and generally making it look as neat as possible. He's a delightful guy who really knows what he's doing. His minimum charge is $100, which gets you an hour of his time. I'd recommend him enthusiastically for anyone who needs work like this done.
