Hallway Painting

This is my second time having a project completed by John and I couldn't be happier. John painted my main floor/second floor hallway; the walls at the staircase are the challenge going all the way up to the ceiling of the second floor. It was completed in a very timely manner and John cleaned up afterwards.

We also had some good laughs while on breaks. My only disappointment.....no trampoline (inside joke)!!

I recommend John and I have already been discussing my next project with him.

Various ‘fix-it’ projects

We recently hired John to work on a variety of tasks including relocation of a door, ceiling repair following water damage, capping of a stepped wall and painting.
We could not have been more pleased with John’s work! He was professional, timely, meticulous and produced work of a high standard. (I am a fuss-spot and couldn’t find a single fault!!) In addition, we had some interesting conversations.
John will be at the top of our list of handymen going forward. We highly recommend him.
P.S. John is also a great artist . Maybe he could do a painting for you.!

Flooring, Painting and Repairs

Next time we need renovations or other work done around the house, I know who to call: "Pretty Handy Guy" John Etheridge. John put in laminate flooring, made plaster repairs and painted everything for the entire top floor of our house. He did great work for a reasonable price. He actually started the job when he said he would! He is great at problem solving (always necessary with renovations). The job was totally non-fuss for us; John took care of everything, including moving stuff from room to room as he worked. When we wanted to add some additional work into the project and when we made changes to paint colours, John graciously accommodated us. Not only is his work first-rate but John is also a really nice, easy going person to work with. Definitely our go-to guy for future work!

ceiling painting

We booked John to paint 2 ceilings where there used to be popcorn. He responded quickly and gave us a satisfactory quote. His work was very well done, including clean-up, and he completed the job within 1 day. We are very happy with his work, and would happily use John's services again.

Bunkie tongue and groove wall install and finishing

We have worked with John before and we were very happy to have to call on him again to help us finish winterizing our backyard bunkie. He did a fantastic job, especially when he had to turn some lemons into lemonade with a structure not ready for winterizing. He is trustworthy, always easy to deal with and friendly. What a fun and skilled person to have in our home. Thank you for a great experience and fantastic work, John!
Highly recommend.

STAIRWELL PAINTING

John did an amazing professional job painting my stairwell going up to the third floor of my house. The walls are high in some areas and awkward to get at. Certainly not a project for me to tackle. He was kind enough to fit me in between jobs due to weather issues for his current outside work commitments. I would not hesitate to call John for any future jobs I may have and highly recommend him.

Highly Recommend !

We recently had John come and refinish our deck and paint our basement floor. We found him to be very professional and careful with his work. He addressed all of our concerns and did a wonderful job for us. We will definitely call John again anytime we need any work done. Highly Recommend !

Closet Refresh

John has been my handyman for at least a decade. He always delivers with a friendly smile and a goofy joke. Strong work ethic, attention to detail and reasonably priced.

Our latest project was a refresh of some closets. They were completely gross and he made them look like new so we could list the house for sale.

Hey Shelley. Many thanks for the kind review and for the last 10 years of projects. It's always interesting when I would work for you. Lots of laughs and such a wide variety of projects over that time through 2 homes.

Deck rebuild

We saw John working at a neighbour's house and approached him towards the end of that job to quote us on rebuilding out deck. After a pretty solid referral from our neighbours we asked John to schedule is in.

Overall, the work was done on time and on budget. It was also completed beyond our expectations, with alot of attention to even the smallest detail, like scribing deck boards around the foundation stones or cables we had running along the brick.

I wouldn't hesitate to hire John again in the future. Thanks for the amazing work

Hey Andrew. It was a pleasure to rebuild your deck and help give your family some valuable outdoor space again. Here's to many years of bbq's and memories on the new deck.
