Review by in Saint Petersburg, FL
Project: Repair Drywall
If you are in need of someone to care for your home and project as if it were his own, consider your search complete! Christian was the personification of professionalism and dedication. His attention to detail is outstanding and the quality of work absolutely confirms that. We had a detached garage that had severe termite, ant damage and the electrical work was underwhelming. Our goal was to convert the garage into a home office space. The work that Christian did make this one of our favorite areas of the house! He went above and beyond to ensure that our vision was sustained, especially when the unexpected issues appeared. The project included: drywall repair and installation, electrical rewire, stud replacement, paint, and lighting. If you have a home project require any of these, contact Christian without hesitation. You WILL NOT be disappointed!

Review by in Tampa, FL
I would like to recommend anyone who needs a solid, reasonable, hard working handyman with years of experience. I initially called him to put tile down in my master bathroom and walk-in closet as well as a guest bathroom. I also needed a new piece of wood shelving under my sink that was warped and he was able to do that. Found out he could also repair sections of damaged drywall in a couple of rooms and was able to get the paint to a near perfect match. After he replaced the dry wall put some paste, water barrier protector and a sealer on the walls they then sanded them and added texture, after it was painted it was like brand new. He was able to repair one of my electrical outlets that was not working, adding a microwave and kitchen sink disposal. Who knew!!!! All-in-One repairman with his uncle Louis (great assistant). He lays tile, laminate and different flooring with great care and knowledge. He added new beautiful shelving to our master closet. Much more space now. I just kept finding things for him to do because I had so much trouble getting anyone to come up and do one project correct. He re-grouted and sealed my walk in shower as it was leaking. He immediately detected where the leak was from and promptly fixed it. I spent (wasted) $250 for a resource that specializes in finding leaks to locate where the leak was coming from and the young man sent did very little diagnosing saying the shower pan probably is "shot" and it would cost 5-8K to tear up the shower the find leak and change shower pan. No experience at all. Good thing I didn't take his advice as Christian, the True Skills Home Improvement and Handyman found the leak and it was a $20 fix! He also does plumbing and repairing broken PVC pipes. Again, I was so satisfied with his up front detailed invoice and then to learn he can do most everything else I was ecstatic! I finally found one man who can do it all (if he can't he will refer you to a very reputable person who can i.e. large paint jobs). It took me 33 years living in Florida, many contractor's and handymen at various homes we owned only to get mixed or unsatisfactory results. I am making him my private handyman (lol). He is solid, affable, friendly, hard working, doesn't cut corners and a reasonable man you can trust. Search no more just look him up him on Home Advisors. Christian Santana - True Skills Home Improvement and Handyman! 5 Stars, excellent service! I'm happy as is my wife. D. Mecca, Tampa, FL

Christian was very punctual and clean! I didn't know he was around. He installed sheet rock and moved appliances and I didn't know he was there.

Project: Hire a Handyman
This is an outstanding contractor with outstanding customer service. Christian is a good problem solver. Very knowledgeable in all the trades. Installed cabinets, tile, plumbing, electrical. Very respectful of me and my property. Very trustworthy - we went on vacation. and pays attention to detail. Christian followed up with me to ensure all my expectations were met. He listens and genuinely cares about his homeowners. We are hiring Christian to do work on another property we have. The workmanship is high quality and he believe in doing it right. I strongly recommend - Christian is a true professional.

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.
