How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because Ever since I was a child I always had a passion to fix things and tinker with them to see how it worked. I really enjoy repairs and remodeling projects. Since 1989 my father and I have been taking care of my grandfathers house we turned around into a rental property and aquired other rental units as the time went on. I've been doing all types of repairs since. When my father passed in 2008 I became the sole landlord and been doing all the repairs since . Check out my photos on my work and you tell me what you think. .

We started in this industry in 1989.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

Review by in Orange, CT
Nick and his crew to a great job refurbishing and finishing my pool deck. Nick was honest, timely, neat, and very easy to work with. Basically he did what he said he was going to do and did it at the price that he quoted. A few things: 1. Nick replaced some of the deck boards, after they finished, the following day, I asked him to replace a few more, he did it with no questions asked. 2. Upon finishing the staining of the deck, to our surprise it began to rain, I paid Nick for the job, later, I realized that the rain had washed some of the stain away, I contacted Nick, he said no problem they will come back and fix the problem. While it took a few days for the weather to clear, Nick continued to communicate with me and then let me know when he would be back to re-stain the areas that needed it. He did this after being paid in full for the job.... very honest. Needless to say, the deck looks great. I would not hesitate to use Gargano Handyman Services again.

Nick is very conscientious, hard working, intelligent and did a great job. I will hire him again for a much larger job come spring. I have plenty of work and he gets it until he screws up, but I doubt he will.

Project: Hire a Handyman
Earlier this week, we had a need for some household repairs and lacking the necessary skills to address these carpentry repairs I contacted HomeAdvisor. Among the several Pro's they referred me to, we choose Gargano Handyman Service. Nick responded promptly with a very reasonable price for his services followed by a quality and timely completion of requested projects. We will definitely call again. John & Jean T.

Review by Dale C. in Branford, CT
Project: Hire a Handyman
The problem we hired him for came back worse than before he did the work plus he hounded us constantly for payment before job was done even though we gave him partial payment up front
Response by Gargano Handyman Service: Not true at all I have pics to prove what I did and gave good service to the customer . He never told me anything negative as a feedback . I waterproofed spots on the roof . They only have me 100.00 dollars a a deposit and I paid material up front and completed the job. Waited over 2 1/2 weeks to get paid . I waterproofed a second layer of roofing they had . I also repainted a compound the previous damaged and repainted. I supplied this landlord which lived in Rhode Island a lot of communication as the process was being done .

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.
