Mr. HandymanDo not use them!

Not worth my money!
Window frame came apart - it took Chad of waukesha, WI 5 minutes to run two screw through it. He did not have glazing - how do you not have glazing if you know you are coming to repair a window?! Now I have to get someone else to finish the window.
Since I was paying by the hour, I had him repair a latch on the garden gate. He screwed in a 6' piece of wood - shabby shabby shabby!
And he charged me $20 for materials! 4 screws and a piece of throw-away wood cost $20!! When I scheduled this appointment, dispatch did not tell me anything about materials being extra - for $146/hour, 4 screws should've been included.
All in all, it was lousy work and bad service.
Do not use them!

    Working in the contracting and building business for over 40 years i can tell you first hand from personnel hands on experience, doing any handyman type of work is never a cut and dried sort of job . It is truly impossible to do small repairs all the time and have current access to materials and hardwares to match what your working on. Honestly when hireing a handyman you have to be willing to compromise. I think most people call to save money but in actuality if you want professional results on some of this type of work it needs to be torn out totally for a complete professional remodel . I find many people are just not willing to spend the money to do it right and end up with this ( handy man ) quality. Bottom line is dont expect miracles when you hire any handyman types of companies, its close to impossible to match all your needs

    I used Mr. Handyman in Murphy, Texas. They came out saw that I needed a piece of wood, went to the store for an hour and that cost me $90 for a store visit 5 minutes away. They did forty five minutes of work and then waited three hours for the paint to dry before finishing. Those three hours of waiting cost me an additional $270. What a joke. What a crooked company. Total bill for forty-five real work minutes, $490. Repair was lousy.

    Not only was the work sub-par, the local owner / operator…BOB (Wayne, NJ), was rude and condescending. NEVER, EVER use this company.

    This afternoon I called Mr. Handyman because I had three major jobs that I needed to have done. After being on hold for several seconds I was informed that there was no one available and I needed to call back. Not very likely. They could have at least provided the means for me to leave a message for a call back. Hardly professional. Not impressed.
