Kerr Home Services has been a life saver for our family. We moved last year into a 1924 colonial that was badly in need of updating. Andrew and his entire team are top-notch, and especially Yuri, who has done so much for us. They are honest, hard-working, extremely competent, and deliver the work with a high level of skill. I am so grateful we found them.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We have used them for all kinds of projects over the last year or so.

I had a long list of projects that needed to be done, some smaller, some larger. Yuri was here working diligently the entire day. He fixed everything well, and even asked about fixing things I didn’t ask him to fix ( he saw that the dryer vent needed to be cleaned out when he was up on the ladder looking at the exhaust fan for my bathroom and cleared that out as well. He was very punctual, friendl...

Excellent! I am now able to control lights in my house from my smartphone. They clearly knew how to deal with these types of switches. As for the storm door, they did a really nice job of repairing the wood and the door apparatus. It loos and functions as if there was nothing wrong.

Our older home has a lot of character but also requires a lot of work (fixtures, flooring, plumbing, electric, wear and tear, renovations, you name it). We have had many experiences with handymen over the years. Many of these experiences have been positive, but nobody compares to the work we have had done by Kerr Home Services-- particularly in customer service and professionalism. Ever since we d...

My front door and side lites are made of fiberglass and the stain had faded away over the years. I didn't need re-staining on the inside, just the outside. I had contacted the service provider late last year but it got too cold to do the job. This year it got done in October on a nice day. Yuri was sent out to my house with several colors of stain but none of them matched. He went and got more sta...
