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.

Entrance Door paint

This is the second time I called John to do another project for us. He gave the quote and provided timeline when can he do the project and did it on the day he committed and on the budget he said. Our door looks like as if we have installed a new door, he did an awesome job. For any future projects I don’t have to shop around I will call John with confidence that he will do a great job no headache for us. Highly recommend him

Pre-staging improvements

John did a great job finishing and sprucing up various closets and cabinets and repainting our front deck to help get it ready for sale. Not only does John do a great job in implementing our vision, he offers great suggestions when we aren't sure exactly what we want to do.

John has left his mark throughout our home during the nearly 4 years we've owned it. I'm sure it will help us get top dollar when we sell, just like it did with our last home!

Multi Project Request

This is actually the second time we have used John. He responds very quickly, provides a very reasonable quote and is up front about his schedule. We even had to adjust our original booking and he was very understanding and flexible. We had multiple projects in the house that needed to be done such as painting, bathroom caulking and exterior wood pillar repair. His work is great, he not only cleans up after every project but his work itself is clean. He takes pride in what he does and it shows. He is also a pleasure to work with. He would be the first person we call when we have more projects in mind and we highly recommend him for any of your projects!

general home maintenace

John Etheridge did five days work for us in May 2021. Before he arrived to do the job, we emailed him a detailed list with pictures and measurements of what we needed done, and he went out to buy the necessary materials. He was easy to work with and amenable to all jobs requested of him. His hourly rate was fair and did not change after our initial phone conversation. He arrived on time, and he worked the hours that he specified in our contract. At the end of every day, he cleaned up the debris left from his work. I would definitely recommend John because of his ability to do many different tasks with good results.

landscaping/carpentry

Working with John was a delight. He quickly got a handle on the existing situation and the desired outcome. He was helpful in creating a plan. He communicated his timelines clearly and accurately. He did everything he had promised (plus a few additional tasks that came up during the job). And his billing quite fair. I will not hesitate to call him again, and to recommend him to friends.

John is a stand up honest guy, picked him for my deck sealing project because of the high reviews here on Homestars and glad for this decision. Don’t hesitate to contact him.
