Great service, great guy.

John is a professional: he was punctual, he gave a detailed estimate, he did the work quietly and throughly, and he left the job completed and clean.

Don’t go anywhere else. This is the man to hire for your house repairs, painting and handyman work.

Outdoor deck vent installation and stairs repair

John did a good job of installing vents around the skirting and replacing the stairs with my deck. The job was completed on time per quote and he is very easy to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend John's service to my friends and neighbour.

Various Indoor and Outdoor Handyman Repairs

We called John about a month ago, arranged for him to come to our house to work on a laundry list of various repairs: dry-wall finishing and painting around a new skylight, silicone/caulking showers and kitchen, weather-stripping doors, replacing the laundry vent cover outside, fixing a broken closet rack.

John came on the date and time he said he would come, and he did a great job of helping us with all these things. He is friendly, polite, detail oriented and does high quality work. He is also very organized, neat and tidy and it was a pleasure having in our home.

John does home projects big and small, and with this great experience with him we would not hesitate to work with John in the future. He is a great handyman!

Basement doors replacement

John is a very knowledgeable and reliable person.
He came, evaluate the work, quickly provide a quote and did the work.
Our basement had several door, each one "one of a kind", all with weird sizes. John did an excellent job replacing the old stuff, changing all the hardware and painting the doors. The basement looks so much better with this! He left everything in prime condition, clean up and took the old doors, hardware, garbage.
I strongly recommend him for any home improvements work.
(I wish I would have taken photos before and after so people can see the difference!)

It’s always a pleasure to have John work in our home.
He is prompt, hard working, neat and tidy. This time

His prices are competitive. CoVid 19 safety measures in place.
Looking forward to my next project.

First floor painting & Bathroom vanity Install

John was fantastic to work with.
Gave our entire first floor a fresh coat of paint - it looked fantastic. He also took care of replacing a broken vanity in our guest bathroom; and was very patient about having to deal with an ordering mishap on our part.
Our kids & cat also adored him.

We are looking forward to having John back to complete some more work for us. Would absolutely recommend.

Barn board paneling and barn door

As always John did an amazing job. This project included installing white wash barn board wood panelling over an old brick wall, installing cabinets, and hanging a barn door on the bathroom. I am so please with the outcome. John has a great eye for design and attention to detail.
