Project: Hire a Handyman
Watch the workmanship. Bill’s worker was told to take short cuts during pre-painting prep which would result in having to do it again soon. I asked Bill about it and he got mad at me and the worker for confronting him about it. Made me very angry!
Response by Desert Sun Handyman Services: I am very sorry for this comment. All work was completed per the work order that was approved by you. I also did not hear that you had any complaints when you paid your final balance. If there is an issue with work performed please do not hesitate to call the office.

Project: Repair Cabinets
Our experience with this company was extremely poor. Initially, the owner was very professional and presented us with a plan, a timeline and ultimately an estimate for the work. The execution of the plan and the timeline were very far under what I believe is the standard. There was no communication from the office/workers about what time they would be showing up each day. The individual sent to the jobsite on day one and subsequent days had minimal experience (no more than 2 weeks) on the job and had previously never done any type of construction work. He openly told us this. He was left on site with instructions and no supervisor for about 75% of the entire time to do the job. Our floors were not protected during the work and therefore damage occurred to our hard wood floors. As one might imagine, the job took over the projected 3 days to complete (7-10 days longer than projected) and never was completed to a satisfactory level for my next team to come in. I eventually had to hire someone else to complete the job. What I believe to be the worst aspect of this is that in spite of the issues presented and several picture- filled e-mails to document this unsatisfactory work and ask for it to be corrected, the owner (Bill) never came back to inspect the work of his inexperienced crew. This was one of the most disastrous experiences I have ever had with a work crew doing handy projects on my house. We ended up filing a complaint with HomeAdvisor for the terrible experience. In retrospect, they are probably good for small jobs like cleaning gutters or very simple handy tasks as the other reviews have commented, but I would not recommend them for anything complex that requires attention to detail.

Do not hired this company the promise to complete a project but don't deliver. Each they were at my home there was always a different person at my home working only half a day and still no response from the owner Bill Andrews.

Project: Hire a Handyman
The owner gave me an estimate to remove some old counter tops and backsplash laminate and modify 2 base cabinets to fit 2 small dishwashers. The quote was $410. The worker was here for 2.5 hours the first day. He came back the next day with another person who mostly watched and did another hours work. We waited for a week to hear back from the company as to when they would be back to complete the work and did not hear a word. It was then I decided to fire them. I asked for a reduction in the bill based on a reasonable hourly rate ($40 - $50 per hour) as it took far less time than anticipated. I was then told that the minimum labor rate is $75 per hour. This was for relatively low skill demo work mind you. I can see a higher skilled task fetching a higher rate but not for this type of work. The $75 per hour rate is not published so that was a surprise. My bad for not asking and clarifying their labor rate. The worker also had to use up one of my saw blades to finish cutting the cabinets because his blade was too dull. This less than stellar review is justified based on my experience. Overpriced, unreliable, poor customer service. Do not recommend.

Seal of Approval

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)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
