Handyman reviews in Elsmere

    Dave Devine
    Dave Devine stated he could fix "just about anything" and came highly recommended. He took the old rotted fixtures off my bath tub and was supposed to repair the leaky pipe in the wall. Whatever he did, he made it worse and the leak not goes into my basement instead of the bathtub. He lied about his ability and damaged my home. Do not hire him.

    Tim Wingo
    Tim Wingo replaced my hot water heater and was supposed to install 115v electric and a gas line to hook up my gas dryer. He took $1300 from me for both jobs but did not come back to finish the second job despite numerous calls from me. I am a senior citizen and he ripped me off. He may have ripped off his employer as well since he was using his work truck to do the job. Do not hire this man to work for you.

    They mis-advertise their service area, they don't service all of New Castle County and they refuse to do service in the city of Wilmington which is in New Castle County. Due to this I think that Angie's List should drop them.

    AB Contracting
    I purchased two gallons of paint and 1 gallon of trim that they advised me to purchase. They were supposed to finish the job that was nearly done. Some rooms just required an additional layer of paint and some just needed a touch up. During their painting job they did not end up using 1 gallon of paint. Based on what I could see there were several spots that required paint that weren't done, for example, the kitchen walls between the ceiling and top edges were left untouched. Also they didn't take the time to cover areas as to not get paint everywhere. Their was work was sloppy to say the least. He also never completed installing the bathroom faucet nor caulking around the tub as included in the price paid. I met with the Service Provider on a Friday night around 6pm as requested. He advised that he would be finished at that time and I was to pay for the job. I spent an additional 2 hours going over areas that were not done to my satisfaction. I didn't leave the location until around 8:30pm. It was dark, so the items I could see he tried to correct. I returned on Saturday morning to shampoo the carpets and was able to see more clearly the paint job. The job was done sloppy. A lot of the work was a mess. It didn't appear the kitchen was painted at all. There was paint on the shower curtain, paint specks in the carpet. Pure laziness. I have been in communication with the company however it appears based on text message that he will not be returning to finish or correct the job.

    Making the appointment was a breeze.  I emailed Ben and he responded less than 12 hours later.  We set up a time when he could come out to look at the job and give estimates.  When that date/time arrived Ben showed up right on time.  Due to the nature of the repairs (couldn't tell how much if any wood rot there was until the steps were torn out)  it was hard to determine an exact amount so he gave both best and worst case scenarios.  We made arrangements for when the actual work would take place.
    On the date when the actual work took place, once again Ben showed up on time.  He quickly got started assessing what all the job would entail.  He then made a list of materials needed and we went to Home Depot to pick up the supplies.  Once we returned to my home he got started right away and really impressed me with his knowledge of not just the job at hand but on home restoration in general.  I also liked that he didn't mind me watching over his shoulder when he was doing something I considered interesting.
    Once he got started Ben was fast and efficient which is obviously a big plus since there are many ways hourly contractors can drag their feet.  In the end the job was completed faster than I expected and also MUCH cheaper than I was expecting.  Before leaving Ben conducted a thorough cleanup of the area and I had an extra hour and a half of free time that was I wasn't expecting.  All in all it was a very pleasant experience for something that could have been much more stressful.
    I actually plan on having Ben out to do more work this next weekend and in the future.  I guess it really worked out that the first handyman I contacted was busy because finding Ben the best thing that could have happened to me.

    Ben is fantastic!  He responded immediately even though he was out of the state and he continued to be very responsive as he worked on our house.  He completed a list of repairs and was very fair with his time and ensuring we were only charged for time he was actually working on something.  He worked quickly but thoroughly.  Ben even went out of his way to stick around when our counters were being installed (without charging us) to ensure the work was done right (and it would not have been had he not been there).  Ben was great with our pets and kids and a pleasure to have around.  We will certainly hire him again and recommend him to others.

    They were prompt, courteous, cleaned up nicely everyday and my neighbors loved the work crew, too. Now all we have to do is wait for the rain to see that their work...worked. Thanks Repair Squad.

    They came back when we had issues...Wayne said he would get this roof fixed and he is keeping his word.  Go Repair Squad!!! 5 star group...I highly recommend...

    Nice gent.  Knew his stuff.  Obviously, from the great reviews others have given him my experience was an exception.  He took notes on every odd job I needed done, inside and out, and said that he would have an estimate the next day of July 10 at the latest.  I have never heard from him since.
    I left a message for him here on Angie's List a couple of days ago; still no response.  
    I will be more than happy to revise or update this review if and when circumstances change.
    I really don't like being left hanging.

    Pete returned my phone call within minutes, and then showed up at the dot of 9 am. Awesome!
    He was very thorough and knowledgeable, and offered several explanations for my problem with my hot water heater.
    He was also very honest. He pointed out that my heater was very old and showed bad signs of corrosion. I should really think about whether I wanted to invest any more money into it at this stage. So instead of just taking my money and executing a repair on a boiler that might not last for very much longer, he recommended I contact a licensed plumber for this job to get an expert opinion. He didn't charge me anything for half an hour of his valuable time. I really appreciate that.
    Thank you very much for your time, Pete, I will make sure to hire you for the next job.

    Pete is professional and knowledgeable. He explained what he was doing and why it was necessary. We had a light that didn't work and asked him to help us get it back on. He not only fixed the light, he identified a number of problems with our wiring and recommended we hire an electrician to make some major repairs. Reasonable rates and great service. We will call him for all our handyman needs!
