Review by in Albany, NY
Work was guaranteed. When the work malfunctioned and I called, Jerry gave it a quick fix. Later, the work fell apart some more. I called to make good on the guaranteed work. No callback- only spoke to voicemail.

Jerry was punctual, pleasant and performed the wall plastering service. He did an excellent job! I will certainly use him again and highly recommend him. I am very pleased with his workmanship.

Project: Hire a Handyman
I highly recommend Jerry Brammer of The Handyman Services for pretty much any construction needs and repair services you might have. Jerry has saved my life several times since I first hired him in Nov of 2016. I had literally gone through 6 contractors trying to renovate a duplex in Delmar dealing with issues including paying for work not done, work done incorrectly and simply trying to get them to show up. I was living in a demolition nightmare and at the end of my rope when I found Jerry. He was the first one to walk into my disaster with a positive attitude. He's been working for me ever since. I haven't found anything that Jerry can't handle and he approaches the problem as if he's working in his own home. He's honest, realistic, flexible and thorough all at a fair price. The work he has done for me includes electrical (repairing/installing lights and outlets), plumbing (replacing hot water heaters, repairing leaks, running new pipes, clearing sewer lines), carpentry (constructed a bedroom closet, a porch, trim work, etc), refinishing my wood floors, sheet rocking, taping and painting (interior & exterior), replaced gutters, installed fencing, cut down small trees with stump removal, landscaping and most recently put in a sidewalk.

Project: Hire a Handyman
My experience with The Handyman Services was excellent. My phone call was promptly returned and a visit to assess the work was also timely. The price was reasonable and the work was outstanding. Jerry is very skillful, did multiple jobs, and all the work was of the highest quality. The cleanup was also done well. I would recommend Jerry to anyone and will definitely be calling him again for my next project.

Review by in Albany, NY
Project: Hire a Handyman
Gerry called right back. I needed my Weber grill ignitor replaced and had been looking for 2 weeks for someone to hire and was not able to find anyone. He was at the house 30 minutes after the call and my grill was fixed 20 minutes later. I had the part and his charge was simply his fee to show up. He was knowledgeable, honest and very polite. On his was out I asked him to look at a leak in my dishwasher and when he did he said he could fix it but it would leak again in 30 days! He then told me I needed to get a new dishwasher and not put any money into this one. How often do you get that response from a repairman? I will have him back whenever I need a repair. He does everything! I highly recommend him and will share his name with our neighbors.

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.
