The Get-It-Done Guy Handyman

Please visit

Starting in the military, I've been getting dirty and working with my hands and tools most of my adult life (I'm now 39). Inside and out, I've remodeled houses wall-to-wall and performed the filthiest, most exhausting manual labor and clean-up projects you can imagine. I'm your go-to guy when you have to get it done, but dread the thought of doing it. Pls. view my website,, for testimonials, project photos, and more background information about me.

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

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I love to work and my heart bleeds for anyone who doesn't. It's a time-consuming and inescapable part of life, but properly leveraged, a life-long source of pride and confidence (and a phenomenal form of exercise - mental and physical). I don't gamble, draw SSI, or live with Mom and Dad. Debt-free and completely self-supporting, I take my work seriously. .

We started in this industry in 2002.

We describe our business as Well established

Review by Len D. in Lexington, KY
Project: Hire a Handyman
I hired Morgan to complete some drywall repairs and my dogs were locked in our bedroom. Morgan said "Can you please do something about those dogs?" He then proceeded to put his clipboard down and look around then picked his clip board up and slammed the front door and left. Morgan was extremely rude and arrogant. I would never recommend him or his services.

Project: Hire a Handyman
Pro is disrespectful, not flexible with schedule, overrates own skill and knowledge, and quickly threatens legal action if disagreed with.
Response by The Get-It-Done Guy Handyman: Every company or business attempts to only enter into transactions with customers who are willing and able to approach both the technical and legal/financial sides of the process with honest, responsible and realistic intentions and expectations, and are fit to represent themselves in doing so. Unfortunately, it is not a flawless process. It is clear by the many reviews on my website and that I do not operate my business or conduct myself in the manner that this customer claims. I invite any curious or concerned party to inquire about the circumstances behind this or any other review. -Morgan Salyer

Project: Hire a Handyman
Morgan does business the way it should be done! He did carpentry and drywall work as well as painting and pressure washing at two locations. He arrived approximately 9:00 am on the days he worked and didn't stop until dark. He is very skilled and trustworthy (I left him alone several times to take care of my personal business & wouldn't hesitate to do so again.) You might find cheaper but you won't find better than Morgan. I could go on but my highest recommendation is that I will definitely hire him again when the need arises.

Review by in Lexington, KY
Project: Hire a Handyman
Morgan worked on several projects around my home over a two month period. It started out as a repair from a burst pipe in the basement to a larger project. He replaced my deck, front porch, stripped wall-paper, replaced fixtures, painted, pressure washed, worked on making my house look better than it had in years... Inside and out. He had great advice on updating and what my house would need to sell if I chose to. If you can trust anyone with your home, it's Morgan. If I need anything else, I would not hesitate to call again.

Morgan works hard and doesn't take shortcuts. He is on time and works as late as you want him to. He's a professional at his work. He installed my kitchen cabinets and they are perfect. The granite company came and did the template and they were perfect. I would hire him again and recommend him to my friends and family.

Morgan was a pleasure to work with. He resurfaced our deck and did a few other odds and ends on the outside of our house. He always arrived on time and cleaned up the job site each day.

Review by in Versailles, KY
We are so pleased with the work Morgan did for us. As seniors, my husband and I approach the necessity of hiring someone to work in our home, with trepidation. Not so after meeting Morgan. He painted four rooms for us, including the ceilings, assembled a large, lighted pot rack, which required a great deal of electrical "know how", sealed some leaks in our skylights, and left the area spotless each day when he left. We will never hire anyone other than Morgan to take care of our projects. If Morgan can't get it done it won't get done!! I think next it will be yard work!! As our generation would say, "We got ourselves a real find"!

Review by in Denver, CO
Morgan is one of the hardest working contractors I have ever seen. We recently contracted Morgan for a number of landscaping projects and his work was impeccable. The job-site was spotless when he left and the quality of work was fantastic. Morgan also offered really good advice and is very knowledgeable. The project came in right on budget. I highly recommend him.

Review by in Louisville, KY
Project: Hire a Handyman
I hired Morgan to handle several jobs with my rental properties. He's the only contractor I've ever dealt with who runs his business like a business. Straight up, get in, get the job done all the way, and get out.

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.
