I called Gary early in the week, he came out the following Saturday, went through the inspection list with me and gave me a price on each item that needed to be replaced or repaired. The man spent 2 full days in my house doing the 25-30 things on the list. He did an excellent job and everything he touched. He provided the receipts to me from Home Depot, he did not charge any mark ups, etc., went over each item to make sure I understood what he used them for. This man is a gem.
Awesome. I was especially happy with the front molding repair. It looks like new.
Gary was unfailingly polite and clear about everything. When he arrived at my house for the estimate, he gave me, on the spot, a separate price for every job. Perfect. No surprises.
When he came to do the job he was on time, cleaned up after himself (as he should but many do not or at least not thoroughly). He was quick and efficient.
One thing I particularly like is that he doesn’t pretend to be an expert at everything. Love that!”
Gary and Sam do all the work and Gary will provide you with an upfront labor estimate which will also be the final labor cost plus he will give you a receipt for any purchased materials. At the completion you inspect his work & he shows you pictures; for ex. if you have some roof or attic work & you don’t want to climb up there to inspect it yourself. You pay in full upon completion.
He has done two full days of repairs for me over the last 2 months & has shown up exactly the time he promises.
I have never been so satisfied with any repair person. He represents an “Old World” quality of work ethics that you won’t see in today’s world.
Once again the Houston Handyman has made the impossible possible in my home/office. It’s so difficult finding people who will get the job DONE… start to finish and within a reasonable budget. I am thrilled with Gary’s work!
We got an estimate and the job was done in a few days time. Also, he was able to complete the job without us being at home which saved us taking off of work. They are very professional and knowledgeable.
Gary is generous with information; he seems forthcoming and knowledgeable of the work necessary to get repairs done correctly. Being dedicated to providing the best customer service, Gary only takes on jobs that are within his scope of work. Unfortunately, our fence project is too large; however, he offered us a referral and gave us advise. We are looking forward to working with him soon on the other jobs he provided quotes for.
Gary is personable and funny. He talks a lot, but he knows that so he doesn’t charge by the hour. He is professional and he always keeps his appointments. He gives estimates and schedules new jobs on Saturday. You must schedule in advance. Gary is our ‘go to’ handyman. He is always our first choice if scheduling permits.
Gary arrived on time, immediately provided options for what type of lighting and exhaust hood, and was aware of the cost estimates for each option. He made the purchases and when he returned, worked fast, efficiently, and with confidence. All the work was completed on time and the quality is excellent. Gary seems to have a wide range of skills – I will certainly use him in the future.
How did it go overall?…In one word…FABULOUS. They do excellent work. They are honest, thorough, dependable, prompt and trustworthy. I have zero concerns about having them in the house with my 83 year old mother. They are meticulous in what they do. I am so grateful to have found them. I have a house full of projects that need attention and I will definitely have them back. This is the third time I have had them help me in the last two months and I have recommended them to my sister. Look no further…these guys are the BEST!
Gary has been to our home in the past. He knew that we needed a special hinge for the old gate so between visits he picked up the hinge and carried it around until we needed him again. He arrived at the appointed time and performed the magic that only he can perform. In order to make the refrigerator fit he had to remove the bottom of the overhead cabinet- he made sure that I understood this before proceeding with the work.
The gate is absolutely perfect even though he had to “engineer” the new hinge to make it work to his satisfaction. And as far as the “scarecrow” sprinklers- they work in tandem like a charm.
I can emphasize enough how great of a job that Gary did and how great of a person Gary turned out to be.
Really, there are two things that you get when you bring Gary into to work for you.
- You get excellent quality work that is professionally executed and is backed by years of experience.
- You get Gary who proves himself to be an extremely honest, hardworking man that take his job seriously and is a really enjoyable person to be around.
They did a very good job and the whole ladder structure is more stable and secure. Had to replace everything from the old ladder due to spring breakage and bending brackets.
My husband found Gary thru extensive research online 2 or 3 years ago. We have used Houston Handyman on several occasions and have never been disappointed!
Gary and his nephew are on time, do EXCELLTENT WORK with both striving for perfection. Because I am extremely picky, for me to give and EXCELLENT is a huge!
It’s uncommon for find an individual or company that is concentious and cares about the work they do. If that’s what you’re looking for, USE HOUSTON HANDYMAN!
During the job, if there are issues that come up that were not identified in the estimate process, Gary ALWAYS makes you aware. No surprise ADD ON CHARGES after the job is complete. And, no mess left behind!
I find Gary, his wife and nephew to be honest! Need I say more?
