Project: Repair Cabinets
We were very happy with the work Steve did. Took about two hours and was very reasonably priced. Would definitely hire Steve again!

Review by Eileen P. in Sayville, NY
Learn from our mistake. Do not hire Steve Applebaum, the. LI Handy Hubby. Seven weeks ago Steve estimated $80-$100 to fix our hot tub leaks then charged us $252. He said the repair was more difficult than he thought. We found out, after running it, that it still leaked at his repair areas. So Steve lied and said he stood by his work and would fix it. He came back once and told us to spray it with flex seal. We did and it still leaks, we think because he used the wrong PVC pipes. We asked for a partial refund minus the cost of parts. No response. He still won’t respond to our calls and emails. Like many amateur hubbys who think they are handy, Steve guesses how to do repairs and it ends up costing you tons more cause of hubby’s mistakes. Now we know Steve is the type of guy who would ask relatives to write those positive reviews that had impressed us. We should have known the type of fraud he was by Steve’s business card slogan: “Size doesn’t matter.” Ugh. We are honest hard-working, trusting people and Steve made fools of us. Beware and don’t get schnookered by hiring LI Hubby. You’ve been warned. We gave Steve half a star rating only because he showed up. He really deserves all zeros.

Review by in Deer Park, NY
While we were happy with the completed work, we really wish Steve was available more to do the work in the mornings instead of afternoons. It was hard to nail down times with him but to be fair, it also snowed 3 of the 6 weeks he was working on our staircase. His prices were quite reasonable compared to others we interviewed. He even offered a reduced fee when the work became more extensive and stretched into additional weeks.

Project: Hire a Handyman
Handy Hubby Steve repaired cement stairs and installed a new outside back door. He did an awesome job. Steve was always on time and made sure everything was done properly. His prices were very reasonable. Great personality. Very personable. I will definitely use him in the future for any other repairs I need done.

Project: Hire a Handyman
I had a handyman replace my sink and vanity in the bathroom of my home. He was very reliable. He took ownership and returned to fix a leaky faucet. He took care of the issue immediately. Fantastic customer service.

Review by in Mount Sinai, NY
Project: Hire a Handyman
Steve put up a sliding screen door that I bought on line from Home Depot. He did a spectacular job. He knows how to read directions and when the door was completed in under 30 minutes it worked perfectly. He is a perfectionist and very neat workman. Hire him for any job that requires a skilled craftsman. He does superior work . When he was finished I asked him to complete another job I had been putting off; Removing and cleaning the down spout in front of my house; He did it and also took the time to add a leaf catcher so It wont have to be removed again. I am glad that Steve is a local business man . I look forward to recommending him to my neighbors and friends. I am sure they will be pleased with his work.

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.
