5.0 Christina P. Ballston Spa, NY

Brady and his team are incredible!!! Bradyâ s attention to detail is top notch. I found Brady on Angieâ s List, which I was nervous to do, but I am so thankful that I did. Brady is reliable, dependable but most importantly knowledgeable. He sheetrock my kitchen and great room (ceiling and walls) and did an amazing job!!!! Thank you so much Brady for the amazing work!

5.0 Adam W. Ballston Spa, NY

Brady and his team are top notch. Communication was excellent. They show up when they say they will. Brady makes sure everything is done to the customerâ s satisfaction. Itâ s rare to find a contractor that truly puts the client first these days. They worked a few small jobs for us in other areas of the house while they completely renovated one of our bathrooms. Our house is very old and challenging to work in but we couldnâ t be happier with the result. We will definitely use them again in the future!

5.0 Luke T. Round Lake, NY

Highly recommend for patio repair. They provided multiple options, listed the pros / cons of each, and allowed us to make the best decision. They knocked out the work very quickly... I am so pleased with the job they did!

5.0 Gina G. Schenectady, NY

If you are looking for an honest, reliable, hardworking, talented, good humored team of home improvement professionals, Hired Hand is it. Brady and his team gave us a reasonable, competitive quote on a host of jobs in our VERY old house â  from demolition, to new walls, refinishing 230 year old wood floors, etc. They were here every day, as promised until they were finished. AND THEN came back to touch up trim and another wall that Brady deemed â  not perfect.â  I leave with a master craftsman, and he was more than satisfied with their work. That is a statement! And they were enjoyable, many a lively conversation was had. I highly recommend Brady and his team, you canâ  t go wrong.

Robert is an excellent person.

5.0 George S. Ballston Lake, NY

We highly recommend "The Hired Hand" (formerly named B Squared Home Solutions). They made numerous repairs to our deck, and completely refinished it. The deck is 30 years old, and now looks as good as new. Also, they repaired a set of wooden stairs leading from outside into our basement. I thought they were beyond repair, but are now fully functional. They started the project on the date promised, kept us apprised of their progress, and finished the job on time and at the quoted cost. We are very pleased with the quality of their work, and plan to have them do future projects.

5.0 Christine L. Schenectady, NY

Highly recommend using them for your home projects. They replaced multiple failing concrete stairs and porch with wood stairs and porch, did a fantastic job. Also fixed a plumbing issue we were having. The total cost was more than fair. We will definitely be contacting them for any other projects that we need done and will be recommending them to our family and friends.

5.0 Casey B. Schenectady, NY

I hired B Squared Solutions for multiple small projects around my home. Each project was thoughtfully approached and executed. I am more than happy with the results and plan to use them for future projects!

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
