He’s friendly, trustworthy and I feel like I can leave him in my home. I really do like him a lot. I found him on Angie’s List. I would recommend the fact that he’s trustworthy, when you live in the city that’s a big deal. If he feels like it’s something he can’t do then he will tell me. I think he is fair with his pricing.
Removed old front porch and installed a new one using treated lumber. Went very well. Have other projects I will be asking Gary to do like installing a attic staircase. He told me he would have his wife contact me because he was book through December, but he is so busy I am not surprised he forgot. I am just now getting to leaving him feedback on the porch and hope to contact him soon about the attic stairs.
Overall, job went very well. Gary Frith and his nephew arrived at the time we agreed on and began work. Job went smoothly and quickly, with no inconvenience to homeowners. Work was completed in about six hours, after which Gary and his nephew cleaned up the work area. I am completely satisfied with the entire project and workmanship.
From estimate to cleanup, Gary was extremely professional and thorough. He arrived a little late for both the estimate and the work, but called on both occasions to let me know. He completed all of the requested work as described, and he was very thorough with each project. I’m very happy with all of the work that Gary performed, and will definitely use his company again.
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.
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.
Gary and his team were awesome!!!!!!! They did about 10 projects in our home. We were extremely impressed with the quality of work. We have had other people work in our home and have never been very impressed– their work was sloppy, did not complete projects in a timely fashion, ended up costing more than the original estimate, etc, etc, etc. We are thrilled to say that this was NOT the case with the Houston Handyman.
We will definitely have them back!!!!!!!!!!
They did an outstanding job. He does quality work. He is great and very knowledgeable. His name is Gary Frith. He is a little pricey, but he is very careful and he takes his time. He had to adjust the door because it was moving in the foundation. He had to set it just right. He repainted it for me.
As usual Gary showed up on a Saturday to give me a quote. (I have a good working relationship with him, so I have basically given him the keys to my home and trust him to do things without me being there.)
I asked to proceed with the quote, but since he is good at what he does, naturally he is fairly booked, so there was a 30 day lead time. Nonetheless, he showed up as planned, did the work. As usual, I was 110% satisfied.
This is the 3rd time I have used HoustonHandyman.com and will continue to do so. Gary is punctual and precise. He is not the cheapest quote, but he is the best. If you don’t want to fool around with a project, Gray is your man. I am almost hesitant to post good news, because I fear I he will be impossible to book as word gets around….”
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.
He was really good. He gave a thorough estimate. His price was competitive and affordable. He kept to his appointment times. He wasn’t late when he did work for us.
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.
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!
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!
