    Our experience with Mr. Handyman of South Montgomery County was excellent all around. They have a good answering service and scheduling system and are very good at communicating with the customer. We had a leak in our first floor ceiling with water apparently coming out of the tub in the master bath through the ground and out of the ceiling fan on the floor underneath. We had a similar leak several years ago, which had resulted in us having to renovate the bathroom upstairs (bc the precise source of the leak could not be found) and we feared that it would be as big a job again. Dan Hastings, who is the proprietor of Mr. Handyman of SMC, came out himself to do an insurance estimate for diagnosing the leak and fixing it if the issue was in the pipes or between floors. (Not including possible tilework or major renovations of the bathroom upstairs.) The estimate was quite reasonable and we agreed that Mr. Handyman of SMC would start first by cutting open the ceiling and trying to fix the leak from below. Antonio came to do the work yesterday and he is great. He was on time, respected COVID-19 protocols, works quickly, and is nice and friendly, but most importantly he found the source of the leak and fixed it! When he first cut into the ceiling, he learned that the water wasn't coming from any of the pipes and it appeared to be coming from the wall above. (Our two bathrooms and showers/bathtubs are back to back and share a wall meaning that there is no place to cut into the wet wall without cutting tile.) Before cutting any tile, however, he investigated the area from within the bathrooms and correctly deduced that there was a broken metal/brass fitting behind the tub spout. How he figured that out, I have no idea. But he was able to replace the fitting and address the leak through the spout opening. No more leak and no expensive tile work! Antonio also moved the ceiling fan that was downstairs (which he discovered was incorrectly installed and not anchored in a stud when he removed it to investigate the leak) and installed it in a bedroom upstairs and took down the old ceiling fan in that bedroom. The ceiling fan is working great. Antonio also drywalled the ceiling, not only where he had to cut the hole to investigate the leak, but also because the water had led to a seam line in other parts of the ceiling. We're going to paint the whole house soon, so we didn't ask him to paint, but he was willing to do that as well. The drywall and mud look very flush to the ceiling and he left the ceiling ready for painting. Finally, Antonio gave us some good advice on other electrical matters while he was here, which helped us to address an issue with a light fixture that we had. Overall, this was a great experience and a major relief that we don't have to retile parts or all of our master bath. Thank you, Antonio and Mr. Handyman!

    Pretty straight forward getting an appointment and my cabinet installed although it is difficult to get anyone on the phone. This proved to be a problem later when I requested the cabinet be lifted higher. Initailly I was told that there won't be a charge for the change via email. This was two weeks before the appointment. A day before the appointment I get a call from the contractor (not the office) saying that I will need to pay for him coming out. This contradicts what I was told by the main office so I try to contact them and again no one answers the phone. I then get an email from the office saying that I am now required to to pay for them coming out because they assumed someone different than what I said. I would not have minded paying but I was very upset about how everything was handled by the office and the contractor. It was very unprofessional. I will not be using their services again.

    Work was done well and both doors were repaired as requested. Price was a little higher than expected.

    I'm not a fan of hiring by the hour. I prefer by the job. However the finish result is great and so was the tech.

    Mike the Handyman called immediately (even tho it was after 6pm when I did my search) and scheduled an estimate appt the next day. When he came, his work was fast, efficient and he’s well priced. He’s also excellent at communication, either via call or text. Will definitely use him again!
