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!
We found Gary through Angie’s List and he is just great! We have had him out to our home so many times. He charges per item and is very reasonable.
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.
Gary has done several jobs for us including a big overhaul of our French drain problem in our backyard a little over a year ago. His work is top notch and he is very trustworthy as he strives to take pride in his work. He is very friendly and laid back but takes his work seriously and shows genuine interest and concerns for his customers.
I recommend him to anyone who may need any type of work done on their home or business. I have already made another call to the Houston Handyman just today for some siding and insulation work on my home!
He’s the only one we have recommended to other people already. I felt like I could trust him right off the bat. We had a lot of workmen in the house that I was uncomfortable with. I felt like I could be at home alone with my daughter with him. Everything was great. Before he left, it felt like he was an old friend of the family. He’s a talker and storyteller. He does work hard and he did a couple extra things for us.
They delivered my huge kitchen sink and the delivery company just dumped it at the end of the driveway. So he just picked it up and carried it into the house for us. There a couple extra things that he helped us with. He was the only guy that we knew that could do texting. It was cool. He was a down home professional.
Gary is generous with information; he seems forthcoming and knowledgeable of the work necessary to get repairs done correctly. Being dedicated to providing the best customer service, Gary only takes on jobs that are within his scope of work. Unfortunately, our fence project is too large; however, he offered us a referral and gave us advise. We are looking forward to working with him soon on the other jobs he provided quotes for.
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.
Gary provided a variety of home repairs: shower tile grouting, shower curtain rod hanging, fence/gate mending, latch installment, door alignment, mirror hanging. I’m a repeat customer and as always, Gary and his team were superb. He reviews each job, he talks through potential pitfalls that might cost more and always keeps materials costs within budget. Gary is very trustworthy – he came to my house on a weekday, and since I work, I gave him a key. He doesn’t mind my pets (dogs and cats) and they like him. He’ll be refurbishing a deck for me this fall.
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.
The whole experience has been absolutely marvelous. Gary is a pleasure to deal with. While doing the work he chatted with myself and my wife like we were old friends. When he left for lunch he went to Home Depot and bought a grab bag of supplies he needed. Just as so many others have noted, when the jobs were done he presented us with a bill AND the Home Depot receipt, along with the bag of remaining supplies. Gary was here from 9:30 until 5:30pm and his bill was for exactly the amount quoted.
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.
Gary is great! We needed help on a weekend and he was the only one who would come & did not charge us through the roof. He fixed our problem and was very thorough with his troubleshooting. He was courteous, knowledgeable, professional and friendly. He explained what was going on and answered any questions we had. He also charged very reasonable rates (better than any place else we contracted). Since he is an individual rather than a large outfit you really get the personal tough and feel as though your job is important to him. That kind of service is hard to find these days. Reminded me of what it must have been like back in the days when you really go to know and trust the people who did work for you. If we need anything in the future we are calling him first. Highly recommend”
Gary is very good at his trade! He is friendly, on-time, reasonably priced and the quality of work is excellent.
He took care of my ‘squirrel issue’ by repairing the entrance to my attic, replacing fascia boards with Hardie blank boards and metal plus painted everything.
I will definitely use his services again.
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.
