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.”
Gary is always on time and very trustworthy. I helped moved bedroom furniture and he removed carpet. He then removed the exterior rotted trim around the chimney then went to hardware store and bought supplies. Came back and finished installing new trim and painted. Then took down my entry door that wouldn’t close between garage and kitchen. Took it outside and trimmed off the bottom. Removed and replaced weather stripping and reset the door.
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!
I can not say enough good things about Gary! As soon as you talk to him on the phone, or meet him in-person you can tell this is a good person who is not going to take advantage of you, he is there to do a good job and make your home better than it was when he walked-in. I highly recommend Houston Handyman! Quite frankly, I walk around my house thinking “Gary can fix that!
Gary did an outstanding job on my project list. Not only was he courteous, but he was extremely thorough. His estimates were right on and he explained up front potential pitfalls he might encounter that would affect the estimate. He arrived on time and he and his associate, Sam, worked a very long day to complete all the tasks. Not only will I call on Gary in the future, but I’ll be referring him to friends as well! Thanks, Houston Handyman Gary Frith!
It all went beautifully. Gary came up with creative solutions for unexpected issues so everything got fixed cheerfully and quickly. His helper carefully sanded and painted the door, lifted and removed heavy items, and helped get bed legs firmly set into lifters. I’ve never had such a pleasant time having someone hang pictures. All three were jumbo and very heavy, and they are now centered, at the right height, and secured with 2 hooks so they won’t always be crooked. Why did I procrastinate so long? Because I had had a bad experience with another handyman company. Now I have Angie’s List
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 and his assistant worked in harmony with each other so much that I almost forgot that there were two men on the job. I was very impressed with he manner in which he conducted business. At the end of the day, he presented me with an itemized invoice including receipts for all materials purchased. I highly recommend Gary Frith, The Houston Handyman and will definitely be using him for future projects.
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!”
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.
His bid was so much lower than others I had to tell him to tell me what he would normally bid for that job. He is honest, has a memory like an elephant as he did not need notes to buy the materials and even bought me some primer I needed. He bids labor and charges you for the materials he gets right off the receipt. This is a unique person who comes across as humble, but he is one of those super smart people. He makes you feel like he will be the best experience you ever had. He follows that up with his craftsmanship.
5 STAR and will use as long as I am able. He is just the personal I have searched for and was affordable because he does the work himself and takes great pride in it.”
Everything went very smoothly. Gary and his nephew showed up when promised, charged exactly the quoted estimate, and did outstanding work; the best handyman work I have seen. The price was fair and Gary was easy to work with, very knowledgeable, communicated well, and showed the initiative to make a repair that I had not realized was needed. Because he gave the estimate for labor only and then charged me the exact price of the materials needed, I felt like I received higher quality materials and a higher level of workmanship. I have already scheduled him for more work and recommended him to friends.
Excellent work from start to finish! Gary arrived right on time, performed all of the work in a very reasonable amount of time, and did a quality job on all of it. He only charges actual cost on supplies, which is great when you’re looking to get several small jobs done. I couldn’t be more happy with the work he did, and I would recommend him to anyone!
Gary did an amazing job around our house. He was very polite, honest and knowledgeable. He showed up on time for every appointment and worked hard to finish each job and to ensure we were happy with the work. He was also very helpful in explaining each job and what they entailed. I can honestly say I learned a few thing while integrating with Gary over the two day period he was here. Great attitude and a hard worker. Enjoyed his conversation too!! I would highly recommend Gary to others and look forward to working with him again on other projects. Thanks Gary.
