Project: Hire a Handyman
My experience with HowSmart has consistently been top quality. I received a call within 24 hours of making my 1st contact. Randy's done a variety of jobs for me. He started out repairing the outside walls of my shed that another handyman had repaired incorrectly. He re-screened damaged sections of my sun porch which was also caused by another handyman's poor workmanship. He's installed a barn door between my laundry room and my kitchen with a design of his own that made this project more cost effective that offered by others. Every job has been discussed thoroughly to make sure that we're in agreement. I've also asked his advice on several projects and I've always felt that he was giving me solid information that was in my best interest. I have received prompt, respectful and courteous response to my calls and during Randy's service calls. In addition, every service call was made within the time window provided and I've received a call advising me that he was in route. I recommend HowSmart highly and without any reservation as a truly professional service.

Project: Hire a Handyman
I've spent years compiling projects for a handyman, but wanted one that could do everything and do it all well. I have finally found the handyman I was looking for all these years. Randy has been here twice and I already have additional projects for him. He has an hour drive to get here, but is still willing to come this far. He was recommended by a friend and I have already thanked her and told her how wonderful I think Randy is. And he takes pictures of all the before and after work and adds them to his invoice -- a plus I didn't expect.

Review by Sean G. in Maricopa, AZ
Project: Hire a Handyman
I hired HowSmart, LLC for $50/hr to do several project they done 2 project assemble office desk and security door lock he took 9 hrs to do few projects days later they wanted $1050 to finish job. They reneged on the original oral contract and took advantage of me.
Response by HowSmart, LLC - Unlicensed Contractor: My name is Randy. I was the one who was out on these projects. First of all nothing was as described when I arrived. He had me put together a desk and a return and hutch in a room that had no room to work in (every piece of the desk had to be built, drawers, etc). Second I installed a digital front door lock with thumbprint scanner. I installed it and it took a lot of time to go through and program it with him. The money we wanted to finish up was not additional money for the work we already were doing but for new work that we estimated to do. He wanted electrical run to 5 different locations that were part inside and part outside. There would have been a lot of attic work to do and it is the middle of summer. I explained all the costs to him and he still didn't seem to understand me. This was a case of miscommunication where as he has a difficult time communicating what he actually wanted to have done and he has a difficult time understanding what is communicated with him. We never take advantage of anyone and we wouldn't. We pride ourselves in being upfront and honest about everything we do. This review is not an honest representation of our company or the work that we do and I would encourage you not to take it seriously.

Randy does quality work at a reasonable rate. He has worked on numerous homes for me. He and Lori make a great team and provide a very reliable service, which is very hard to come by in this field. Highly recommend!

In addition to excellent work, Randy is friendly and professional. I have used him twice and the day before each of my scheduled appointments, I receive a confirmation phone call and a time window of when he will arrive. He lays out his work taking precautions to cover the work area and cleans any additional items that may have not landed on his covered work area. I would highly recommend this company to anyone, and would tell you his work is great and his pricing is extremely competitive. I have another project I will need to be completed in the fall, and he will be my only call. EXCELLENT!!!!

  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.

  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.
