First, we have not had good luck with any kind of help.  They either are late getting back to us or over priced.  I called Derek of Mr. Handy and set up a Saturday estimate.  He showed up right on time, gathered all the info (msmts, materials, etc) and said he would email us an estimate in a couple of days. 2 days later the estimate arrived and we considered it reasonable.  After giving him the go ahead he said he could start within a week to 10 days.  Our place is a shore condo and we are not there during the week so we provided a key.  2 weeks later we went down to see a finished job that looked better than we imagined.  To install the new floor he had to tear up the old one which is a messy job.  The kitchen was in clean, pristine condition after he was done.  The entire job was paid for after completion.  We could not be happier with the work that was done and for what it cost. Highly recommended!

I wanted to tell you how highly I think of Matt. He was great to work with; he was friendly, accommodating, helpful and responsible.  It meant a lot to me that he sent me updates including pictures when I was not able to be at the house.  If I had a question he followed up right away. You’re lucky to have him as an employee!

Hi Derek,

Thanks for sending Ringo and Octavio to do my windows.  As usual your men did a wonderful job. They were very polite, very neat and very detailed in their polishing of my windows.

I will call in May to schedule power washing and window exteriors. Until then have a wonderful and warm winter.

The crew arrived exactly when they said they would. The entire crew were all very polite, and respectful of our property. They made sure they left our home clear of any work related materials when they were done the job. Would recommend Mr Handy, Derek Misterman to anyone that wants work done in or around their home. Very professional and affordable.

Description of work:

Pressured washed 4 bedroom house and 3 decks at a Cost of $375

They did such a good job we had them comeback to do our 28 windows at a cost of $280, just $10 per window, my wife says this was the best thing we ever had done.

I have absolutely zero complaints about these guys. They were extremely professional and the quality of work is nothing short of perfection. I would recommend them to anyone.

These guys completely refurbished my entire home. They built my bathroom from scratch (drywall, tile, plumbing and lighting) they also built one of my bedrooms from scratch and installed recessed lighting.

We had an amazing experience with Mr. Handy! We own a home at the Jersey Shore which our family enjoys immensely throughout the year. During the summer season however, we rent out our home in order to supplement the cost maintaining another home.  Every couple of years we do our best to improve our beach house. This year, we decided it was time to update our kitchen and get rid of the older style carpets that ran through out the living room and up into the hallway area.  My wife and I had used a general contractor in the past, but we were not satisfied with their work.  We were looking for a new company to work with when we heard a commercial on one of the local radio stations advertising for general contracting needs.  It was Mr. Handy.  We didn?t waste much time calling.  The first time we called, and every time we called after that, we were able to talk to a representative at the company! It was nice to not have to talk to a machine or wait days to hear back!  We were so impressed by the commercial and phone call, we quickly set up a date and time for a meeting.

At our meeting, we got to meet the owner of the company and several of his licensed professionals.  They were all very friendly, clean, and professional.  We wasted no time as we explained what we wanted done.  Mr. Handy and his team, all listened intently and worked with me so that I understood exactly what it is that they would be doing to help my wife and I improve our home. We wanted to update our kitchen by having new cabinets installed, replace the sink, install new countertops, and replace the appliances.  We also wanted a back splash installed.  We were also interested in having the old carpets torn out and replace with hardwood floors. To finish it all off we also had Mr. Handy repair and paint all of the walls and ceilings and install bead board going the length of the hallway and down the stairs into the living room.

Once the work got started, it became very clear that Mr. Handy and team was very clean.  They kept a very clean work space as the continued to dismantle my old kitchen and tear out my old carpet.   Mr. Handy can literally do it all as I would find out.  Mr. Handy and team took care of every aspect.  I never had to make a bunch of phone calls to various different places to get different things done.  Mr. Handy took care of everything from beginning to end.

My experience with Mr. Handy went so well, my wife and I are looking forward to working with them in the future.  They provided, efficient, clean, and comprehensive service.  Our new kitchen and Common room look magnificent and has brought more value to our beach house!


Description of work:

Re-modeled my kitchen. Installed hardwood floors.  Repaired and painted all the walls and ceilings in my Common room and adjoining hallway. Installed bead board in the hallway.
