    Phalan Construction & The Handyman
    Rob is a pro, a perfectionist well worth every cent. He does not cut corners! He gets right the first time, and has added a lot of value to our home. Everyone who has seen his work cannot believe that he alone did it, and at a bargain price!

    Jay's Handyman Service
    Jay responded to my phone call quite promptly, and we scheduled two days for the work, about a month after the call. I checked in with him a few days before the work was to begin to provide information about where to park. Jay arrived on the two consecutive days in the a.m. when he had said he would. He organized the work very efficiently and got the materials needed for two of the tasks. It took Jay less time than we had expected to complete the work, based on our experience with other handymen, and he did a very good job with each thing. He's the best handyman we've had over the years and we recommend him very highly.

    Hourihane Carpentry
    Lenny and his associate Steven do a great job. I have had them work on 4 properties of mine in the Boston area and it seems like there is nothing they can't do, and at a very affordable price. Some of the projects they have done for me include: Replacing windows Build new walls to subdivide spaces, move bedrooms/bathrooms Build a 3 story deck Rebuild a wrap around front porch Install cabinetry Install tiles in bathrooms These gentlemen are reliable, communicative, and clean up. I will continue to hire for all of my projects.

    Lasky Homesmith Services
    It went Great! If you're like me, you're always trying to find workers that you can trust to get there on time, do a good job, and charge a reasonable price. Well this is the guy I will use from now on to take care of my 100 year old house. We're getting older, and I felt we needed another railing on the wall side of the stairs to help us go up and down without falling. It went up very nicely, fits in with a nice color, and I feel a lot safer now.

    DDA Home Remodel
    He hired Dan and Knoll to install a number of bathroom fixtures and complete a few random projects to round out a recent bathroom upgrade project to avoid a full gut/remodel. Dan was extremely responsive and upfront about a potential cost estimate. Within a week, he came to scope out the project and within two weeks, we had a signed SOW to do the work. In the Boston area, I have found handymen very inconsistent with quick responses and availability for smaller projects. Dan was the complete opposite and I was impressed with his attention to detail and transparency on cost and availability. Within about three weeks Knoll came and performed all of the work in the expected six hours. Knoll was very friendly and was able to perform all of the tasks we needed with great attention to detail and good quality. We had a lot of random tasks (like installing a medicine cabinet, mounting a vanity backsplash, retrofitting a shelf within the vanity, touch-up painting, installing towel bars) and he was very efficient and came with questions before any installation to ensure the approach was to my liking. In terms of cost, I don't have a lot of knowledge about where Dan falls along the spectrum, but I would guess that they're mid-to-high, and Dan did acknowledge this upfront and I appreciated that. However, what you get with that is someone who is organized, responsive, and very clear about expectations. For someone who wanted to get these tasks done quickly, this was exactly what I wanted. I would recommend Dan and Knoll and would hire them again!

    Lasky Homesmith Services
    He was perfectly fine. I didn't have very much of an interaction with him. I needed someone to do the front window downstairs and he did it. He certainly didn't steal anything. He was very polite. He didn't take a long time to do it. He showed up when he was supposed to. He didn't make me jump up and down and go hooray, I'm going to use him 20,000 times, you know. He was OK. He wasn't OK enough that I would call him on a regular basis. There are some people I get that I'm like, I'm going to hold on to his card. The cost was fine, it was in the middle. I say it was fine. He responded right away, he did a very good job on that. He showed up and did what he was supposed to do. He was very professional.

    Handyman Matters of Greater Boston
    It went very well ! Brian was very helpful in regard to seeing the overall picture of the apartment. He helped me recognize that was I thinking how i would want the portent to be, as opposed to letting the renters customize it themselves.

    Frank Panameno Painting & Handyman
    Frank is responsive and extremely reliable. Painting was done carefully with attention to protecting surrounding surfaces. My only issue was with the price. Frank seemed to charge by the day, but there wan't really a day's worth of work.

    Socelvic Co
    The project was a disaster. They did demolition on my apartment and did a terrible job of cleaning up. There was debris everywhere and the job site was unsafe and filthy. After demolition, they went away and did no work for 6 weeks. As this was a rental apartment, time was of the essence since I was losing rental income. They didn't seem to care about my schedule. There was very little communication. My calls, texts, and emails were only sporadically answered. Once the work began in earnest, the quality of the workmanship was terrible. They didn't protect my wood floors, so they got all scratched and needed to be refinished. Even though I gave them a detailed spreadsheet of the items to order for the renovation, they ordered and installed the wrong parts. They told me that they could get me a discount off Home Depot prices, but when I saw the purchase order, the prices were actually higher than if I ordered the items myself. They had no consistent crew working on the job, so I had to explain what I needed over and over. Junior Vicente was rarely at the site, so I had to talk directly with workers that spoke little or no English to explain what needed to be done. They put in a sewer vent pipe through the roof of the house and never sealed it off with a boot, so water leaked in through three floors of the house. Drywall was installed with huge gaps between the boards and insufficient nails. Electrical rough work was done even after the rough inspection. Waterproofing placed on shower walls was actually peeling off the wall. They installed tile over the peeling water proofing and unsealed wall boards. They told me that rough inspecions were done and insisted that I pay 80% of the contract value upon rough completion. Unfortunately, I paid it. But the quality of the work was so bad, that I finally had to fire them. I checked in with the building inspector after I fired them, and found out that they had not done the rough inspection after all. They did rough electrical and rough plumbing, but not the building and fireproofing inspection. And they had closed all the walls, which are not supposed to be closed until the building inspection. The inspector required that I rip out all the walls in the bathrooms to inspect. When the walls were removed, we saw that there was insufficient insulation, no firestopping in the pipe chase, cut studs that were not properly reinforced, and no vent piping from the bathroom ventilation units. I had to pay another contractor to do demolition, and then fix all the problems. I had to buy new ventilation units (the ones I had specified in the first place), all new tile (since the tiled walls had to be demolished. I lost thousands of dollars having to fix the mess they made. And to add insult to injury, I tried suing in Small Claims Count and Junior Vicente didn't show up twice when trials were scheduled. Please, please, please DO NOT hire Socelvic. I hope no one has to go through what I just went through.

    Rare Restoration - Village Green Renewal
    Awesome. My initial concern was cost, as they seemed to be more of a vintage restoration shop, and that usually means expensive. I was pleasantly surprised that they were perfectly happy to fix my trimmer cord, and the entire job came out to around $25. They replaced the cord, cleaned out the dust and the mouse poop (ick) and greased whatever parts needed greasing. Afterward, Seth made sure it powered up and even took it out back to run a field test on some branches in the yard waste pile. It worked great - better than new, actually. I've been using it for a few days and my hedges are regaining their curb appeal. Thanks, Rare Restoration!
