Recent Review: It was an easy and quick estimate then the work was quickly done based upon my schedule,.. I don't OWN. I RENT., i have rented this apartment for 9 years. i wanted to pause and "fix damage, i felt responsible for" My apartment complex was sold to a new owner, 10 months ago. There is very much uncertainty of new remote owner and an awareness that the new owner can get rid of anyone he chosesby not renewing their leasee, for any reason. Then the person has to find somewher else to live. I also have multiple sclerosis, use a cane...in physical therapy I was recently told I am near the end of being able to use a cane and near needing to use a walker instead.. When i get frustrated my hand dexerity decreases and i will start to get tremors in my hands...I blame my lack of ability to "fix things" on MS but really I don't have an aptitude to "fix things". MS just makes what i was bad at doing anyway worse. But now i can blame it on MS... Anyway, i just felt like i had to get things "in order" -in case i needed to move suddenly..I had tried to sand and varnish the bathroom vanity, made it worse. I had tried to replace the broken blind slats by shortening them, then replacing the broken slats with the unbroken slats....Slats, i removed but i ended up making them too short now the swung and broke more, i need to replace them with new blinds if i wanted to have them "in order in case i had to move", There are stairs here anywhy, i should probably look for an apartment without stairs, so i'm likely to need to move regardless of new owner. I describe all this,to make it clear that i was trying to follow lease requirements of 2 owners, Gary adapted easily to my uncertainty of requirements and uderstood what i was looking for. His work was very neat and detailed. A condition i could leave an apartment. I have PRIDE. I don't ever want to be responsible for damage and I don't ever want anyone to know the results of my attempts to "fix things". I noticed too, that as gary was here, he would deliberately do his work so he had more steps to take and I had less. He never said he was doing that, but i noticed and appreciated what he was doing. He cleaned up everything after he was done, took new blind boxes to dumpster and seperated recyclable blind boxes to recycle dumpster and old blinds. to trash dumpster. When i screwed up sanding and varnishing the vanity myself, i thought i would have to paint it and I put 2 coats of primar on it before i stopped and thought i need to get someone who knows what they are doing to finish this. I called to get an estimate..The original quote i got was to paint the vanity., Then the apartment manager said no to painting it, she said it would have to be revarnished. I called gary and told him the work would have to change from painting to sanding/revarnishing. he understood this and adapted easily to ther change, He agreed with me that the old vanity would look better if it were painted. But as a renter, my hands are tied and i would have to do as the new lease required. The new blinds look great. Vanity was returned to how it was beforeI tried to fix it-the best i can do, as a renter.. I am much less worried ...for that i am greatful,. I can focus on finding a new apartment without stairs, rather than "fixing things" after 9 years of living here. I am very greatful, I found Gary. I thought such services must exist, he seems willing to work on small thing that i need done, that it would be better for 'someone who knows what they are doing ' to do...,..I'm excited, I think I have found a service that will be wiling to install safety equipment as i need to have that done, maybe assemble equipment, I buy---that i may have difficulty doing myself. I wish I would have found him or his service 8 years ago, when i was looking at this kind of thing for this apartment..Now i am looking to move from this apartment but i know his phone number for the next apartment.Kind of makes me dream of the stuff i can get installed now that I know a way to get it done. It was frustrating when the biggest reason to not intall these kind of things was because I didn't know how I could get it done. Now I do know ,how i I can get it done. BIG RELIEFEF, I have a plan...call "' HandyMan I Am'
