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 and his assistant worked in harmony with each other so much that I almost forgot that there were two men on the job. I was very impressed with he manner in which he conducted business. At the end of the day, he presented me with an itemized invoice including receipts for all materials purchased. I highly recommend Gary Frith, The Houston Handyman and will definitely be using him for future projects.
Gary and his helper arrived on time and went right to work. As he finished each project he informed me and told me what he did. I couldn’t be happier.
These guys are awesome! They are terrific to work with and very honest in their dealings. You pay them for time and reimburse them for materials (they will provide a receipt). Gary is so honest, he went line item by line item on the Home Depot receipt to show me the actual items so I would see every item. He felt he needed to do this since the bill was over a few hundred dollars.
My attic is unbelievable. It is very easy to get in and out and lost of room now to store items. I installed 2 lights to make it easier to see in there. You may have to wait a couple of weeks to have them do your work but they are worth the wait!
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.
He did a great job! All his work is very, very good.
Houston Handyman, Inc. did a wonderful job setting up my new spa. I was completely impressed with his work ethic and desire towards perfection. I would ask Gary back for any project I need with in the future!
I was delighted to have been referred to Gary for handy work around my home. I was referred to Gary’s company who was in the A-List category, and I can see why. For starters, I had some minor repairs done. He was most professional, courteous, timely, and truly points out and explains minor details to you. It is not easy finding good repair people these days, but this gentleman is quite an exception. I have more work to be done on my home in the future. I also have colleagues who have had difficulty finding good service. Will I recommend and call upon Gary again? You bet I will.
I had the Houston Handyman complete several projects around the house for me and I was completely satisfied with the work. I would strongly recommend them.
Gary did everything I asked of him and more. He also caulked our walk-in shower, and, in his words, “You’ve never seen a prettier caulking job.” He repaired our gas grill by replacing one of the heating elements, and he also cleaned it until it looked like it was new, inside and out. He cleaned out the gutters all around the house. Finally, he power washed our siding that had gotten green over time, and it was a job well done. He does not do painting, but he did refer me to someone who does.
In total, he was working at our house for 10 hours. I can’t say enough good things about his work. He is professional and friendly, without being overly familiar. His service was outstanding!
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.
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.”
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 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.
