Above and Beyond

I contacted Andrew to install safety shower grab bars for my elderly uncle after he did an exceptional job of installing an above-range microwave oven for me a couple of years ago.

Andrew was extremely conscientious and professional throughout the entire job, even taking the initiative to contact the grab bars' manufacturer to ensure they could be safely fastened to the shower stall tile! He took the time to carefully consult with my uncle and myself to ensure the best placement of the bars, and left a perfectly clean and tidy area where the work was completed.

I would 100% recommend Andrew for any "handyman" work that needs to be done!

Thanks Edie for the repeat business and opportunity to help Uncle! Installing grab bars through porcelain required some adjustment with the specialty fasteners required by Moen. Very pleased it's solid as a rock. Good choice of product helps. Thanks x10!

Mounting of over the range microwave

Andrew got in touch in good time and after seeing his excellent rating and reviews, we decided to have him mount the microwave oven for us. He arrived on time and did the job perfectly.
I know this is a relatively small job and appreciated his thoroughness and professionalism.
I would happily recommend him. Excellent work.

Thanks Larry for your kind review and rating. Finding a hole where the new unit needed a bolt meant using our brains to create a suitable hangar for the bolt to be secured from. Enjoy the new quiet unit!

General Handyman Project

Andrews services were recommended by two friends of mine.

Andrew paid a great deal of time looking at and explaining his quote.

The work was completed in a very timely fashion. After the work was completed, Andrew did a through cleanup.

After a few days, Andrew took the time to follow up. A very rare occurrence these days.

We were very satisfied in all aspects of the job and will use Andrew again.

We will also recommend Andrew to others.

Critical and urgent replacement of 24 feet of residential fence

A neighbor's excavation activities compromised 24 feet of my Pool enclosure leaving the pool exposed to the public. This is both a legal and a moral exposure and required fast and reliable repair.

I called on Andrew, based on reference from someone he had done work for previously.

The response was immediate, he arrived when scheduled, and took on the heavy digging and heavy cement work. As a result of his efforts I was able to close the 24 foot hole, albeit temporarily, giving me time to complete the task myself without risking the lives of my neighbors' children.

Home inspection and mold inspection

Ive known Andrew for a long time and he has never pushed his services on me. Me and my wife got our first home (which is more than 100 years old) and I didnt want anyone but him to check our house out. He was very clear with what he could do for us and how much it would cost, it was a pleasure doing business with him and I hope you choose him as your next home inspector or contractor for your home

Gate

Andrew was a pleasure to work with. He was professional and knowledgeable. I had three other companies come out and provide a quote. Neither of them were able to provide any solutions. Andrew listened and understood what I wanted. Provided sketches and completed the task within the timeframe he originally committed to me. I whole heartedly recommend Andrew and I will be using him again for future jobs. Thank you Andrew!

Many thanks for your detailed review and rating. Being a small client-focused contractor means I provide solutions my clients need and want. Building the twin gates between houses over a driveway was a bespoke project. Happy it worked out so well.

Basement drywall repairs, tiling, floor trim , handyman work

All the positive reviews speak for themselves, Andrew is definitely a keeper this job was the second time weve used his services. We originally sourced him out again to install some privacy film on various doors and windows , however , after looking through the reviews we discovered that he also offered handyman services so we contacted him right away, and he responded in a timely manner , showed up on time , worked very efficiently and clean , courteous , friendly , and honest as well. Andrew did a fantastic job tiling our laundry room , installing floor trim throughout our entire basement, substantial drywall repair, painted basement washroom , and installed window and door film throughout the home. We are tremendously satisfied and are lucky to have Andrew on hand!!!!! Do not hesitate and just hire this guy and he likes lattes lol

Full marks to Andrew

Andrew is amazing. I contacted him to install an OTR microwave. He was punctual. Did his job meticulously and cleaned up everything before leaving. He even offered to dispose off the microwave box that didn't fit the blue box in my garage. I would definitely contact Andrew for any future home improvement needs.
