Barney's Handyman Service

Founded 2009 • Angie's List since July 2014

A Rated | 43 Reviews

Description

I've always loved fixing and building things, problem solving and helping people. I enjoy the variety of jobs, meeting new people and the fulfillment I get from helping my clients who don't have the time or inclination to complete those to-do lists that always come with home, business or rental property ownership. This is the most rewarding job I've had! I offer free estimates and serve most of the San Diego area. You may find cheaper labor, but I doubt you’ll find a better value. I am dedicated to doing a great job and making it a pleasant experience. I do my best not to make a mess in the first place, and to leave the job space cleaner than when I arrived. My clients often contact me for more work and happily provide referrals and references. I also try my best to be a Green Business. Although my customers have the last word, I recycle and use recycled or environmentally friendly products and materials whenever possible, and donate anything that can be used by others, rather than add to the local landfill. Please note: Due to a high volume of work and client inquiries (thanks, Angie's List!) it has become nearly impossible to return phone calls in a timely manner. I know it sounds impersonal but please email your request in order to ensure a response, and please excuse delayed replies. It's just me, and sometimes it's difficult to keep up!...

My wife and I utilized Barney's services while he was in the SF Bay Area. I wish he'd come back! Ever since he left, we've tried numerous individuals and none have Barney's knowledge, professionalism and friendliness. I'd highly recommend him and if he decides to come back to the Bay Area, he'd be the first person I'd work with.

Thanks for the great review! I miss many of my Bay Area clients, and you and your wife (I think Angie's List redacts proper names) are at the top of that list. I look forward to seeing and working with you next time I'm in town.

Fabulous! Barney is the BEST handyman I have ever worked with and I wholeheartedly recommend him. He is highly professional and produces high quality work. He is very responsive, clear about what his services entail, and is attentive to the details that matter in solving problems or addressing any issues that arise. He has a strong aesthetic sense which is important to me and makes his work stand ...

F , Fail to perform services as agreed upon.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I've initially contacted Barney on March 27,2017. I was given an appointment that was changed twice. He arrived at appointment late. He verbally agreed to perform two jobs, ( leaking pipe work was declined by Barney). He further delayed the job to April 20 due to his pending vacation. I did agree to wait for him based on his good Angie's reviews. However, he did not contact me on April 20, so I've sent him a message as he does not like to be contacted by phone. Barney responded by e- mail and said he was too busy to help me & to find someone else. I am upset to have waisted an entire month waiting for Barney. His word of job acceptance meant and is worthless.

Thanks for the great review! I'm glad you're satisfied with everything and it's always a pleasure working with you both. And thanks, again, for the gift basket and chairs. They really fit and look great in my "new" apartment. Hope to see you next time I'm in the Bay Area!
