Drywall Repair

We hired John to do a tricky drywall repair in our finished basement following a dishwasher leak. He did an excellent job - the ceiling looks great now. He was personable, professional and charged according to his estimate. I would highly recommend him. We're already planning to ask him back for cedar deck repair work.

Quarter Round installation

I removed carpeting from three bedrooms and required someone to install quarter round. I contacted HomeStars and John responded quickly and said he could squeeze in my half day job within a week. He came and gave me an estimate and advised me what materials to purchase and the quantity required to complete the job. He arrived today promptly at 9:00 am and completed the job in about three hours, tidying up when he was finished. His work is very neat and the bedrooms now look finished. He was pleasant, personable and professional and I would not hesitate to hire him again, in fact I wish I had known about him before as I would have hired him for other jobs including painting, dry wall repair and floor installation. I would highly recommend Pretty Handy Guy.

Drywall repairs, Faucet repair, Painting 2 bathrooms & refinishing/painting of banister & spindles

We were in desperate need of repairs & painting around our house and John was the perfect choice. He repaired a hole in the drywall in the ceiling of one bathroom and the wall in another and repainted both and you would have no idea that they were ever there! He also tackled the refinishing and painting of our banister/spindles and it looks fantastic! John was professional and very pleasant to work with, we will definitely hire him again and recommend him to anyone who needs work done around their home.
Thanks John!

Complete home makeover

John did an accent wall going up my stairs. That was amazing. Changed the whole look of when you walked in the front door. He was back recently and transformed my entire home with trim, new interior and exterior doors, painted from top to bottom, all new flooring, repairs etc. He shows pride in his work by not overlooking even the smallest details. He is professional and timely. I would recommend John and have recommended him whenever anyone asks me about the work.

Countertops and sink installation, shutters and garage painting and baseboard installation

We hired Pretty Handy Guy to paint our shutters and garage, install baseboards, a sink and new countertops with an accent tile. We could not be happier with our decision. From beginning to end, John exceeded our expectations. Polite, patient and meticulous with every detail. We are aware that our old house comes with a lot of challenges, John never uttered a single complaint! Thank you SO much! We are beyond thrilled with everything you did. We will miss having you around here. Looking forward to our next project!

Deck Staining

Fair price quoted and excellent job done. John is very pleasant to work with and is very professional. Comes to work at the time mentioned and does an excellent job. If I mention an additional small job, it is done without extra charge. Will definitely use him again if I have any projects to be completed.
