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.
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 takes pride in his work and a perfectionist himself. He is very trustworthy. We gave Gary a key to our house, since we work, and he would have the job done by the time we came home. Gary is also very entertaining; my husband and I had many stimulating and educational conversations with him. He is a professional and he makes you feel comfortable while working with you. I have been using Angie’s list for over a year in a half and this is the first review I took time to write because Gary is truly the BEST.
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!
My husband found Gary thru extensive research online 2 or 3 years ago. We have used Houston Handyman on several occasions and have never been disappointed! Gary and his nephew are on time, do EXCELLENT WORK with both striving for perfection. Because I am extremely picky, for me to give and EXCELLENT is huge! It’s uncommon for find an individual or company that is conscientious and cares about the work they do. If that’s what you’re looking for, USE HOUSTON HANDYMAN! During the job, if there are issues that come up that were not identified in the estimate process, Gary ALWAYS makes you aware. No surprise ADD ON CHARGES after the job is complete. And, no mess left behind!
I find Gary, his wife and nephew to be honest! Need I say more?

We needed a fold down attic stair so that we could have another company install a new ac and heating system. The price included his acquiring the stair at Home Depot, bringing it to the house and installing it. The work was done perfectly. We’ve used him on other occasions and have always been very satisfied.
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.
Gary is reliable, honest, punctual, clean, fair, and does wonderful work. He is a pleasure. We use him often and he has never disappointed us. We recommend him.
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!”
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.
Given the outstanding experience awe had with Gary and Sam, we believe that anyone not choosing them to perform work are not doing themselves any favors. One does not need to look any further for someone to perform these types of services, after you’ve found Gary and his company your search is over. All you need to do is sit back and get ready for a great experience.
It went great, Gary is a very nice and polite guy. He showed up for a free estimate then came a few days later to do the actual work. Price was very reasonable and he was always on time. He was also very up front about what sort of things he couldn’t fix like my A/C unit.
I would highly recommend him.
Gary was wonderful! He was professional while also being very kind and considerate. He worked hard to make sure we could find the correct original paint to use in the bathroom wall rebuild – out of the many cans in my garage. While at Home Depot, he picked up a toilet paper holder for me, just in case, to be installed during the wall rebuild. I was very thankful for that. He quoted a time period and he met his quote.
I am currently working on a list for him to come back out and make more repairs. He is wonderful!
Gary showed up on time the following Thursday and started his work . Myself and my wife were at work the whole day and met Gary in the Evening. He had everything finished and was ready to give us a walk-through. He explained in detail everything he had done patiently and also gave us suggestions for future. He had gone the extra-mile in fixing certain additional minor things that were out of scope of the current project. He had also cleaned up after his work.
We found Gary to be professional and very friendly. I would definitely use Gary’s services again and would recommend it to others with no reservation.
