Most importantly, Gary charged me exactly what he had estimated (no hidden costs!) and he did a fantastic job. We’re VERY happy with the work, several months later. We’ll be using Gary again, that’s for sure!
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 had Gary, the Houston Handyman, do several jobs for me today. He did a great job! So glad I discovered him on the Silverlake Yahoo Group. I highly recommend him to anyone that wants something done.
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.”
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!
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.
This has been the 3rd time I call on The Houston Handyman to finish a project my husband had started. This time SUPER Gary fixed the 12 windows my husband installed. Being as handy as my husband is, I frequently get asked who did all this beautiful work, I quickly recommend THE HOUSTON HANDYMAN! Both my husband and I are always very very pleased with his work!
Your #1 Fan!
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.
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….”
Such a pleasant experience from estimate to job completion. This company CARES about their customers. Positive, agreeable…a work ethic extraordinaire…particular, neat, and fairly-priced. I will be passing this site along to friends and family. Installed a door, built a pergola roof, handled deck and fence issues…everything is just great. HIGHLY recommend.
I was charged only for parts used. Labor was completely separate. Gary suggested doing things that costs 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.
Gary is the most professional handy man I have had work done. His work ethics are beyond reproach. He came out first and give a complete written estimate of the jobs to be done. I received a follow up email alerting me of my upcoming appointment. He called the day of appointment and arrived on time. Work was completed and a detailed list of all supplies were discussed when presented with bill. He cleans up all of the mess and leaves you with the feeling of a job well done.
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.
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.
