Description

A true handyman service, intentionally not pursuing contractor type tasks to focus on the under served "small task" market that every home has, but most services don't want or are not properly equipped to handle with the kind of competence, quality and professionalism that we do. Staying true to small jobs keeps our availability much higher. You will not find such a comprehensive package to arrive in an impressively large van stocked with all things necessary to address such a wide variety of tasks with such care and competence. If you've had trouble finding someone to hang your pictures, change a hard to reach light bulb, get your slider to you know ...slide. We're the call you need to make. Currently our hourly rate is $ for two skilled professionals. We typically suggest to resign to whatever your budget will allow, preferably 4 or 8 hour time frames and call with your prioritized list of tasks. Prioritizing ensures you are making the most of our visit with the things that will best enhance your life. Once the time is up, the remainder will defer to the next visit when finances will again allow, again to address the most important items to you first. By repeating this you will have your every day life looking and functioning the way it should, no more cabinet door that you have to open that certain way so it won't fall off, or what have you. We do charge for time in acquisitioning the necessary supplies, typically one hours time and will take away all waste produced every time for a nominal fee if desired. Handyman in the truest sense. In the past we've installed bat houses, repaired decks, righted sheds & concrete stairs, re-screened/repair patio doors & wheels, fixed cabinet doors, repaired exterior rot (selectively) with new trim or rot specific hardeners. Hung pictures and paintings, assembled diy furniture and yard playsets. Cleaned gutters, pressure washed for miles, install/repair storm drs. Really the variety is boundless with the only exception being jobs that require bldg. permits....

Dan of Handy for Hire visited our home for the third time in mid-July 2019. He fixed a gate, built a gate, stripped/recaulked our bathroom, and figured out a simple fix to a sticky door we’ve had problems with. We walked about identifying and prioritizing small projects for the next couple of years. As every, Dan was a friendly and delightful conversationalist. Really, do not bother trying other h...

Went great. Dan was a total professional. He has been doing this a long time and knows his stuff. The artwork used a hanging system that he wasn't familiar with but figured it out quickly. Have a ton of jobs for the house and he is now my go-to person.
