    Frank and Carlton are EXCELLENT! I needed emergency repair work on a door frame and they fixed it the same day of my call. They are friendly, very knowledgeable and take great pride in their work. And they are also reasonably priced. I highly recommend The Handyman Home Remodeling & Repair Company.

    4.5 Ben M. Philadelphia, PA

    Frank and Carlton were prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, and attentive to the job of fixing a more complex issue with the front door of my apartment where the wood-rotted frame no longer held the door and complicated by the uneven flooring and alignment of the door frame along with less than optimal original hanging and hinge placement of the door long before I ever occupied the 100 year old building. There really was no "easy" fix as a solution, but Frank and Carlton worked with what they had and came up with some creative ideas that was a great result. They cleaned up well and were pleasant and professional. Was it altogether looking like a brand new door? No, of course not, and that was not expected. Perhaps they were slightly under-prepared with regard to "prettying" up the fix at the end of the job, however that is probably the worst I can say as I told them I was capable of doing that on my own. Regarding smaller projects, I would absolutely recommend Handyman Home Remodeling & Repair...as far as bang for the buck, one will likely not do better as their prices were more than reasonable and they were efficient with their time. It's hard to find reliable people who are honest and not ripping you off, which is too often a customer experience with too many contractors, but Frank and Carlton were truly the "real deal" who I felt were worthy of my lengthy praise as I am very pleased overall. - Ben M.

    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.
