Gary arrived as promised, which was late morning. Everything was done professionally and in good time. Gary likes to chat and the job probably took a bit longer because of that (I already had an estimate, which he honored) but he is a very pleasant guy and works very hard. He stayed late to finish (until after 9 pm, as I recall) but got everything done in one day. The new door looks great, and you cannot tell that the ceiling was repaired. Gary doesn’t cut corners – he does the job right.”
Houston Handyman .com provided a variety of home improvements and repairs for us over the past several years. I know I can always count on HH to do a quality job with a professional and highly ethical approach. I am always provided a detailed estimate and always am provided with the receipt for any materials purchased. Highly recommend.
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.
I am a very happy repeat customer. The crew is trustworthy, I never mind leaving them in the house alone. Everything was done in a timely and cost-effective manner. Great job and thanks so much!
We needed a new front and back door. Gary recommended us a store that gave us a great deal on doors. He arrived to work and made what was quoted as a two day job into a one day job. I love my new doors and appreciate how nice and professional Gary was. He made me feel very comfortable. Thanks a million! I’ve already recommended him to friends!
Thanks so much for scheduling us in on Saturday for the installation of our new BBQ Grill. The family dinner last night was great— good food, good weather, and good company.
FYI– I’ve referred you to a lot of people.
It’s been hard to find someone we could trust in our home who would do good quality work and who had the ability to tackle many different home improvement tasks. The Houston Handyman is that person. He’s Great!”
Gary is a perfectionist (which is why he does not have a crew), and does not take short-cuts to complete a task – in this way, he reminds me a little of Mike Holmes from the show Holmes on Holmes. He even took time to demonstrate techniques so that we could do some things on our own, and told us what to look for when buying certain products (e.g. our new ceiling fan). If you are looking for a handyman with integrity, please give Gary a call.
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 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.
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 and his assistant were amazingly friendly, courteous and professional. Everything they did was top notch. After patching the sheetrock they finished it off with painting. So professionally done I can’t tell where the patches are. My advice to anyone searching for this type of contractor is to go to your computer and pull up their website (this is how they prefer to be contacted. You simply list the types of things you need done and they will set up an appointment to come out and give you and estimate.) I felt so comfortable with these gentlemen I could easily feel comfortable inviting them to dinner in my home.
I was very pleased with the Houston Handyman work and would recommend their work to anyone.
Very friendly and reasonably priced. They fixed the doors in our old house which no longer closed properly. I’m Very satisfied with their service and availability.
