Wallpaper repair

Usually I’m pretty good at home projects, but I ruined this one. John came and saved the day! Not only did he fix the walls and install the wallpaper but he put up our vanity and mirror too. He did a great job and I will certainly be using his services again.

Handyman

John came to my home and did a list of things for me including cleaning out and painting a shed, disposing of an old sandbox, rescreening a door and some weatherstripping. John was courteous, efficient and did a great job. I would definitely use John again and recommend him for any work needed around the house or yard.

Prepping House For Sale

John literally transformed our home. He tackled one of the most incredibly frustrating wallpaper removal projects of all time. His persistence and skills removed old age wallpaper, repaired drywall protruding screw nails. His painting skills created bright, clean welcoming rooms and stairwells.
He renovated our bathroom installing new flooring , Cabinetry, hardware and lighting.
John is a true professional and his workmanship is outstanding. He treated our home with care and our project as a priority. He assured us
that he would stay as long as the project required his skills and he did.
John also has an incredible sense of humour and takes time to get to know his clients so he can best fulfill there requests.
I highly recommend John, Pretty Handy Guy for all your handyman needs.

Repair a large hole in the bathroom wall and patch holes left after pot lights were installed in kitchen

John did a few jobs for us this week. He repaired a large hole in our small bathroom and painted the wall afterward. He also patched some holes left when an electrician had to put a small rectangular hole when putting in recessed lighting in our kitchen. He also repaired a bathroom cupboard door that had detached from the main unit. We found John to be a friendly guy who does an excellent job . He arrived on time which was really appreciated. we found his rates very reasonable. We will definitely use John again!

Pretty Handy Guy 10/10

This is the second time I have hired John and I wouldn't entertain hiring anyone else. In a bedroom, John installed and painted new baseboards, expertly painted the room, installed new blinds, built an enormous Ikea PAX system and bed. In addition, he repaired and painted a damaged bulkhead in my basement, fixed a fence post, installed a hose hanger, replaced the weather stripping on our front door, painted the front door inside and out and suggested a striking colour combination!
John has a very easy manner but is conscientious, tidy and takes pride in his work. He is quick to text or call back. He is polite, personable, punctual and a true craftsman. He also has has a great eye for design and colour. I really think there's nothing he can't do!

Deck Staining and Other House Jobs

I was pleased with the work John did on my home. The main job was to power wash and restain my deck, which he did quickly and efficiently. He also completed a few other odd jobs around my house with equal skill, including fixing a plugged sink. I'm happy to have found a friendly handy man who does excellent work at a fair price. Thank you, John.

Dry Wall Work

John is really professional and polite.
He is really good at his work, i am super happy with the work done.

Would have liked to get the dry wall painted at the same time but I guess its difficult for him to figure out the paint colour from a picture but he did a fantastic job at fixing the hole and as mentioned earlier he is super efficient and very friendly.

Drywall bulkhead repair

Thank you John, for a job well done. I had an inconvenient bulkhead drywall job to be completed and John completed it less than a day and ahead of schedule. John is very professional and comes with everything needed to complete the task. Thanks again, I'll definitely call John back for further service needed.
