Lots of jobs on 2 visits

Gary was at my house on 2 separate occasions.

I fist called him a few days in advance of my windows replacement to take down all the blinds. He did this fairly effortlessly, kept the blinds in order, so that they could be put back afterwards and not be mixed up. He arrived on time, was courteous and tidy. He brought all his tools, as well as a vacuum cleaner, so that he could thoroughly clean after he was done. I was home during this visit, so it was easily observed.

During this visit I also had a long list of other items I needed to fix around the house, from toilet tanks, through light fixtures and wardrobe doors, to sink taps. He assessed what he needed to bring to repair these for the next visit. He suggested some good ways to fix the taps, like contacting the manufacturers online to get new cartridges for free, so that I wouldn't need to go a lot out of pocket. So he is cost conscious for the home owner, and suggests an unbiased solution to try first, before starting purchasing new equipment.

The second visit was a few days after the window installation. Gary arrived extra early before I left for work. After spending several hours with him during the first visit, I felt completely comfortable having him work alone. He installed the blinds back and fixed a number of items outstanding from the first visit. Again, he was very tidy.

There was a glitch with two of the blinds, that no longer fit into the frames, as some of the new frames were a tiny bit larger than the old ones, which matters with fitted blinds. He had a very creative solution where he took the caps of the winding mechanism in order to fit them into the frames. So simple and smart.

I would definitely book Gary again. Thanks, Gary!

Thank-you Tania for such an in-depth review. Your observations go a long way to assist others in feeling comfortable hiring me to provide service in their homes. Yes- we had a big list of items to tackle in your home, and I look forward to returning for a 3rd visit shortly to wrap everything up!

Gary is honest, knowledge and reliable. I first contacted Gary to install some light fixtures, a new front door handle, replace a patio door lock and install a new sink faucet at my home. He is very good with communication and we were able to discuss all my needs ahead of time through email. There are no surprises with Gary. He sets the expectations upfront and is not afraid to ask if he has questions or needs clarification. I left Gary in my home unsupervised, I popped in several times and each time he was hard at work. He showed up early and had all the necessary tools and ladder to complete my jobs. He also gave me other contacts for additional work that I needed. I would highly recommend him, he is a professional needs no supervision. Gary is honest, knowledge and reliable.

Backyard Gate Fix

I asked Gary to fix a backyard gate that was literally ripped out of a brick wall. Gary saw the pictures, told me the approximate price and when he can come to fix it. Gary delivered as promised and did a very professional job. I could not be happier. I would not hesitate to recommend Gary!

Thank you Tom! So I have to say this was a first for me. The first time I took a job via email, went to the home to perform work, sent an invoice by email, and then took eTransfer payment. The first job without ever meeting my customer! All the best with your move, and if I ever relocate closer I'll drop you a line.

Drywalling

Gary was great. We hired him to refinish our basement washroom (ceiling/wall) and a stairway wall - he provided a fair quote, showed up on-time each day, was professional, quiet and considerate, did a great job, and cleaned up everything before he left. His work ended up being a bit over his quote and he stuck to the quoted amount. Couldn't ask for more in a handyman, such a positive experience relative to others we had over the years. Would definitely recommend him and will be using his services again!

Vanity/Washrooms and Laundry Room

Gary is an absolute perfectionist, he came prepared with enough parts and tools that it would be fair to compare him to a small hardware store. Everything meticulously organised, didn't waste anytime looking for this or running out to get that. He changed out some problematic toilets, water valves, removed the old vanity, then built and installed the new vanity in the powder room, and even repaired the drywall ceiling in the kitchen. his work is truly clean and exceptional, clearly an expert skill set. With any job when you start removing things that have been in place for 30+ years there is going to be surprises, for which he came prepared. I have hired him on two occasions now, and look forward to working with him again.

Thank you Anthony. I always enjoy when a customer notices the tools and supplies necessary to complete a job. As much as I can, I try to avoid having to leave a job to pick up parts on the customer's time. It's the same with tools - nothing worse than forgetting to bring what you need, and then wasting time trying to make something else work instead. So yes, it often looks like I'm moving in when you see all the tools, but you understand why. Very happy you are satisfied with the work!

Laundry room update

If you don’t like tradespeople who show up on time, get right to work, never ask questions because they understood you the first time and execute everything with the technique of a perfectionist, then don’t hire Gary. I on the other hand appreciate all those traits so Gary and his wonderful work ethic can show up on my doorstep any time. I was thrilled to have found him and when I did I was immediately taken by his professionalism and kindness. He is also very honest in letting you know his limits, which aren’t many, as well as accurate in gauging the scope and time a job will take.

Gary took a dated laundry room into the present with an expert paint job, a nice moulding application and a rerouting of some dryer venting.

The dryer vent that emerged inside the garage was an eyesore and he effectively built and extended the existing bulkhead that contained the tubing, adding a neat snap on access panel.

I couldn’t be happier with someone’s work than with Gary. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a jack of all trades.

Thank-you so much Colette. I believe you take the prize for giving me my first Laugh Out Loud review ! Especially nice to get your review as I did the work for you some time ago. I'm pleased you were happy with the results, especially since I don't offer painting any more. :-(

Much thanks again Larry. By grouting, I know you meant "caulking" - the two are commonly exchanged. Looking forward to returning again for the other tasks you mentioned that you're already planning for the new year !

Handyman Services

I had a few odd tasks that I had called Gary about. This included installing motion detect outdoor lights, keyless lock and fixing a few cabinet door hinges. Gary performed all the tasks professionally. He had a challenge with one task and he was fair enough to not charge me for the time spent on that specific task. Very fair.

Thanks for the kind review Al. I appreciate a good challenge from time to time, but don't feel justified in charging if the task cannot be completed.
