Gary arrived promptly with his nephew and went right to work. The attic ladder replacement was done efficiently and well. Gary also adjusted two external doors at no extra charge. I was very pleased with both his attitude and work quality and will definitely use his services again.
It went very well. They were polite and professional and did a great job. They will be coming back in June to do some additional work for us.
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 purchased all the materials for the job and arrived on time. He only charged me what he paid for the materials. The job took about 10 hours to do and the outcome is great. I never realized how much space was available in the attic and Gary maximized that space. He installed hand holds to get up and down in the attic and he wired up and installed two shop lights which is really nice. His attention to detail really makes the attic usable. He really does good work.
Gary and his nephew Sam are two of the hardest working men I have ever had to my home. I would trust them to do ANYTHING! They are punctual, polite and extremely knowledgeable about their work. Very reasonably priced, they take great pride in a job well done. I feel so fortunate to have found the Houston Handyman; these days it is really hard to find home repair people you can trust. Gary and Sam feel like family once they have been to your home; they deliver just what they promise and them some. I will use them exclusively for all of my home repairs.
If Gary can’t do it he will try to recommend you another professional that specializes in that area and his recommendations always do excellent work as well. He only charges for labor so you can choose the material you want to use. Our previous contractor charged for materials & labor and then used cheaper material than quoted to make himself some extra money.
He is VERY, VERY busy since he works for himself but, if you are lucky enough and he can fit you into his super busy schedule I promise you will be very happy with his work.
I use Houston handyman.com all the time. The last time I used their services was on the 23rd of December. He replaced two water heaters. He is good, professional, attention to detail and fixes whatever price he quoted and tells how long it takes.
Mr. Frith is amazing! He is very friendly, polite, and does amazing work. All the work was very neat, and he wanted to make sure I was pleased with it. Mr. Frith is highly recommend!
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!
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.
I was charged only for parts used. Labor was completely separate. Gary suggested doing things that cost me less. That is quite unusual. Being a female, senior citizen, I am accustomed to being taken advantage of. Both young men were extremely respectful and kind. Last, but not least, they did perfect job of cleaning up, everything. I will be calling Gary whenever I need something else done.
Thank you for all your hard work. It is nice to know that there are still honest and Professional people out there. You made it very easy and stress free for me and for that I thank you. I will be in touch and will recommend you to people I know.
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.
Gary was wonderful to work with from the very start. Responsive on email and on the phone. Arrived promptly at the scheduled time. He did everything perfectly and with a smile on his face. It was a pleasure to have him in our home– he was considerate, friendly and professional.
