HomeAdvisor Screened. View Details

HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information or representations set forth in those profiles, as they are self-reported by the Service Professional.

Business Overview

Community Involvement

Member and Adjutant of the Local American Legion Post - very involved in community activities.

Life Member of the Air Force Association.

Past member of the local Rotary Club

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I have always liked making and fixing things, especially wood. Ever since High School wood shop I dreamed of having my own work shop which I do. When I got out of the Air Force in 1981 I started doing odd jobs for friends and family and it continued from there..

We started in this industry in 1981.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

Looking back to 1981 what change would you make to moving forward?

I would have stayed in the Air Force and retired, then I would have become a General Contractor.

Review by in Bee Cave, TX
Although he was friendly and courteous, Tim should not have taken on our door hanging job because it was too big for one person and beyond his level of expertise. The work he did hanging the first door (of the pair of doors) is unacceptable and I now have to hire someone else to re-do what he did so poorly.

Friendly man who values his work. His estimate was on target, both in time and cost. I will recommend him highly.

Project: Hire a Handyman
I hired Tim and his assistant to install drawer poles. Out of the nine they installed, one was not level the other was not centered. They did not appear to know what they were doing.
Response by Hire-a-Veteran Handyman Service: There was a misunderstanding of what level is. The drawer was not level she did not answer the question as to "level with the floor or level with the drawer front." I typically go with the most eye appealing I was wrong in this case. My Partner and I have a combination of 30 years doing Handyman work. I have 40 years in the construction business. We know what we are doing. We discuss the process before proceeding and agree to the direction.

Tim did an exceptional job of installing our new steel mailbox. He always had a smile on his face even though it poured on him at times. We will definitely ask for his services again.

Review by in Lakeway, TX
Project: Repair Cabinets
Worst job ever. Kitchen doors were made with bad material. The doors originally made months after I hired him, were all warped. Second set were made to small 15 1/2 and they were supposed to be 16. Cracks in the wood, inside panels slide with opening at one end or the other. I painted all sets of doors only to find that they did not fit. Not in a hurry to finish my job because he had other jobs going at the same time. Most awful handyman ever.

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.
