Description

I fix, paint, repair, remodel decks, kitchens, faucets, bathrooms, flooring, cabinets and more. My crew and I will complete just about any home improvement or maintenance project at rates that fit into just about any budget. The table at the bottom of this page shows most of our carpentry, painting, electrical, plumbing and maintenance services. We go beyond traditional handyman services in providing 24/7 emergency cleanup and repairs for Chicago's North Shore when storm waters cause basement flooding and water damage. No job is too small or too large for us....

Awful experience. Lots of promises and even more under-delivery. Hired him to strip and stain my deck. They talked me into replacing the decking and then staining it. Deck now looks worse than it did prior to the work. The stain has left dark spots in multiple areas, and in some instances Im convinced they used paint and not stain as it looks like a completely different surface. They also left a p...

His proposal came in at $2,600 for the storm window portion of the project. His proposal stated it would take a "Team of two journeyman carpenters for installation over two days." This implied it would take 32 hours to install 6 storm windows. I know for a fact I could install each window in an hour or even less. I emailed him thanking him for his proposal but I decided to go with someone else. He...

The job turned out great. We are very pleased and plan on using Lucky again on some other projects we have in mind.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Lucky helped us remove a wall in order to open up our kitchen into a larger living space. His bid was reasonable, his guys showed up on time and were very professional, and Lucky oversaw the job as it unfolded.

Superb. The handyman saved at least a thousand dollars compared to what the foundation company would have charged me.

Overall, it took over a month to complete both parts. Got the deck repairs done quickly but then waited for weeks for the wash/stain. To be fair, some delays were due to weather and others because they did not order the stain in advance. I was satisfied with the deck repairs although I thought the price was high for the amount of time they spent. The cleaning and staining went better....the stain ...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I have a 15 year old garage deck that needed repairs including some new deck boards, stair treads and handrails. Additionally, I hired Lucky to then pressure wash and stain the deck.

Horrible. This has been a nightmare. They took my deposit, made me purchase 4 gallons of paint from their friend, told me they would complete a list of work satisfactorily. None of this was accomplished. The pressure washing wasn't complete and they had to send someone out to redo. When the "painters" arrived they had no idea what the project was because Lucky subcontracted them and never gave the...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
They were supposed to pressure wash, stain, and seal fence. Also pressure wash concrete around house.
