The first person they sent to me who did the majority of the work was great, but he failed to show up to his last appointment. After I reached out they sent me a new tech to finish the work very quickly and got everything finished in an hour or so. The work looks great, can't wait to paint up there and get the bedroom properly done.

When I called to book an estimate I was asked by the representative to send in pictures of the job in order to get an estimate, as that would be faster than sending out a contractor. After waiting for a response over the weekend I called and spoke to a representative and received an estimate of $400-$600 to completely replace and properly seal the damaged sections. It was my understanding they wer...

We are haveing extreme difficulity with Home Depot not haveing supplies in stores due to a combination of Covid 19 and extremely high demand in the construction industry right now. With that said is sounds like we could have done a better job in the communication department. - Dirk D. Hoerr , Co Founder Budget Right Handyman.

Everything went great. Duane Negrillo was the electrician. He was very polite, cooperative, and punctual. He made sure he cleaned up the area as he worked and afterward. Putting in the Ring doorbells was very tricky. Even Ring said that the set-up was very tricky. They emailed me a diagram and Duane was able to wire the bypass and transformer for the doorbells quickly with no problem. He wanted to...

The work seems to have been done well, but I feel I paid about $100 too much because I was told the only way to install my exhaust fan correctly was to go to Home Depot (at a cost of about $75) to buy a specific tape ($22).  Several options I suggested were rejected, although each seems to be a legitimate option according to the research I did afterward:  1. I was told it required tape, but the cl...
