Handyman reviews in Gainesville

    I called twice and left a message on two seperate days and they never got back to me either time. It would have been nice if they could have just told me they couldn't do the job so i could find a company that could.

    JW Home Improvement
    The two technicians who worked on these projects, Kevin and Soren, were extremely professional and personable throughout. They let me know when they would arrive and were right on time. They made sure they had all materials necessary and took pains to do everything the right way. They even took the time to help me with some of the things I was trying to fix on my own. The work they did was superb, and despite the hot weather, they were cheerful and friendly throughout. I was extremely impressed with the care they took with my home, and I look forward to them returning in a couple of weeks to paint and install a new cupola on my garage roof. JW Home Improvement and Kevin and Soren are top-notch.

    Helping Hands Handyman Services LLC
    I called the owner, Nelson, to perform multiple types of repair items from fixing a drywall, to paint, to replace roof shingles, to fix plumbing issues to make my TH ready for sale. Nelson was prompt and punctual and met at the prescheduled time. He performed the work as he had promised in a timely manner to ensure it did not negatively impact the sale of the house. I was pleased with the work and hired him for another work. I will highly recommend them for your house work.

    Nelson and his partner installed a light in our MBR closet and a new light fixture in our kitchen. They also replaced an outdoor GFI outlet. This was done just before Christmas, in response to our less-than-hopeful phone call, and Nelson came through with a great job. The kitchen light has an adjustable height, and Nelson said to call if we needed it lowered. Sure enough, we did, but now we didn't hear from him until after a couple of texts and a few phone calls. I was persistent, and when we finally did make contact he scheduled us and came exactly when he said he would, and gave us a break on the price. We are satisfied customers.

    Diamond Garage Doors
    Instead of replacing the garage door, Matthew replaced the gear and motor and balance the door to save us money. We can return the garage door. He even tune our other garage door for free. The original door works like new. Thanks Matthew !!

    salesman/owner came out in advance and spoke with my wife and was only concerned with increasing the price. He would not even give a list of supplies needed to the techs who came out a couple of weeks later so they were prepared.

    Burke Lumber DBA Fairfax Handyman Service
    This partial bathroom renovation was started on May 22, 2017, and has not been completed to date. I have not been able to use the shower. I paid a total of $5,550 to Mr. Ronald Nystrom, of Fairfax Handyman Service, which included a new bathroom floor (5��� X 7.5��� but he did not tile underneath the 2��� X 4��� existing vanity) and removal of wall tiles and bathtub and adding porcelain tiles from ceiling to floor, a frameless shower door and shower pan. I paid for all materials. The total cost of this job was approximately $6,800.00. Mr. Nystrom stayed focus on the job and utilized time wisely; however, I wished I had questioned a few things I saw during the job. I had used him for two previous handyman jobs���replacing bathroom faucets and replacing ceiling fans���those jobs were fine. My bathroom renovation was not. It is a disaster. He mentioned he performs bathroom renovations and periodically makes a "deal" available to Angie's List customers. I did not see a deal at the time. Mr. Nystrom failed to clean the bathroom when he was finished. It was a mess! I actually cried when he left and then I got angry. He deducted $200 off the job so I could hire a cleaning company but when they saw it, they wouldn���t touch it for that price. I have been on a ladder and on the floor in excess of 20+ hours with a razor blade scraping grout trying to straighten out grout lines to make them look more straight and professional. 1. He failed to seal grout lines that come in contact with water at the wall and shower pan. He didn���t seal any grout lines at all���floor nor shower walls. Some of the grout at the shower pan has fallen out. Please see picture showing missing grout. 2. Silicone was left on my new glass shower doors. I have been using a product that I purchased from Amazon called Xenit to remove the silicone. 3. The silicone caulking on the inside of my of the shower door looked like a toddler did it. Please see picture. I am working now to remove it so I can hire someone to recaulk it. 4. The glass shower doors were installed backwards. He did come back on June 22 to reverse the shower doors and spent 5 hours cleaning the bathroom to make it look more presentable which helped but did not resolved all my issues. He told me he has installed hundreds of these doors. 5. There are uneven grout lines on the shower walls and bathroom floor where water and dirt will accummulate. While I have sealed it, I expect they will be problem areas. He also used tile that was cut short and used caulking to hide the gaps. 6. My left shower door does not go all the way into the shower door frame at the top. I called the manufacturer, DreamLine, and sent pictures and did measurements and concluded as you are looking at the shower, the left wall is not plumb by 1/4���. The left shower door panel does not slide into the shower frame fully. It does at the bottom but not at the top where it is off by 1/4���. The manufacturer explained there is no adjustment feature on my shower doors to correct this problem. MR. NYSTROM SHOULD HAVE INSURED THAT BOTH WALLS WERE PLUMB BEFORE INSTALLING THE SHOWER DOOR. You think with having installed hundreds of shower doors he would have known this. 7. The moulding and quarter round pictures speak for themselves. 8. The drywall finish and caulking finish are poor. Please see pictures of these issues. I have contemplated taking Mr. Nystrom to court���the job performed was that bad. I have never take anyone to court over work performed in my home. As I was writing out the final check, he reminded me that most bathroom renovations cost $10,000 or more and I was getting this for $6,800. While that is true, all I asked for was a partial renovation replacing a bathtub with a shower, new wall tiles and new floor (size mentioned above). My bathroom vanity/sink, light fixture, toilet, bathroom fan, mirror���nothing was replaced. I guess he was trying to make me feel good about only spending $6,800. After his last visit on June 22, I contacted him by e-mail still explaining I had issues with the bathroom and he offered to send me $300 to hire a handyman to fix the remaining issues. I did contact one company with highly recommended reviews on Angie���s List. His estimate was 2 to 3 days of work at a daily rate of $475.00, after the 1st day his labor rate was $50 an hour. At that rate, it would have cost me anywhere between $875 to $1,275. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. I was limited to 10 pictures but I have many more. You decide whether you want to hire him to perform your bathroom renovation. The only way I will remove or modify this post if Mr. Nystrom will make good on these issues and fix what should have been done correctly the first time by paying the full amount to someone who can fix the caulking, woodwork, drywall blemishes and painting. Even with spending $6,800, I should of received a more professional product. My shower remains unusable. UPDATE 10/9/17: He sent $300 for me to hire a handyman to correct his mistakes, he was tied up on a big job. As I mentioned earlier, the first estimate I received was for $875-$1,275 to fix drywall issues, repaint the bathroom, grout issues, rebalancing the shower doors, uneven tile installation on both floor and wall, quarter round carpentry cutting mistakes which he used heavy amount of caulk to mask. Look at the pictures provided with my initial submission. I would hardly call sending me $300 on a $6,800 job "a partial refund." Bottom line: Cheaper is not always better. Lesson learned.

    Duran Services LLC
    I called Duran Services to install a new microwave, and Mr. Duran was able to come the same day. He was punctual and quoted a very fair price. He was careful to make proper measurements, as my new microwave was slightly larger than the old model that I had to replace. He was very courteous and professional. He also made sure to clean up well. I will definitely use him again for handyman services if I need them in the future.

    Mr. Handyman of Northern Virginia - Arlington to Haymarket
    The handyman on the first day had a bit of an attitude, worked slowly, and the quality of his work was good but not great. The handyman on the second was great to work with, worked quickly, and had excellent quality. Overall grade a B+.
