Patio lattice roof rebuild and reinforcement

We required a rebuild and reinforcement of an existing patio lattice roof and replacement of a support beam. Noel was prompt in his responses at initial contact, on time and open about the work and any unforeseen issues. He was precise, focused and entirely professional. The work is amazing, impresses everyone who has seen it. His thoughtfulness in the small details and personable manner were appreciated. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Noel and would most certainly use his services again.

Deck replacement and fence repair

We are so happy that we found Noel on Homestars! What a genuinely nice person to work with. Noel did exactly what we asked - he replaced our old rotted deck, tore down an old pergola, and then repaired parts of our fence while leaving what was still in good condition. Noels attention to detail was outstanding, and is obviously a reflection of his background in fine arts. I also appreciated the little things - like how courteous he was to our neighbours and how clean and tidy he left the work site each evening. The project came in on time and on budget, and at a fair and reasonable price. We look forward to hiring Noel again in the future.

Ipe Wood Restaining, deck and fence repair, outdoor painting,

From the time Noel introduced himself online to me it was apparent he was excellent with communication which is key when you're trying to get work done that is weather dependent etc. He was professional, reliable, the work looks amazing and he pointed out small things that needed to be repaired and took care of them. He is honest and hard working.
Highly recommend

Broad Range of Handyman Services

Noel was constant professional. Came to my house to assess the work that needed to be done within a day or two. He kept me well informed about any challenges or issues he encountered and offered great solutions. I would definitely recommend Noel for carpentry work, window and door installation or repairs, and general masonry work. I look forward to working with him again in the future.

most recent - painting the interior of the whole house

Noel and his team have done a fair amount of work around our house. He is always professional, practical and honest. His work is outstanding and he is totally trustworthy.

Most recently we had him paint the interior of our entire house. He was able to make it as unobtrusive as possible as he went from floor to floor and the holiday season was in the middle of it all.

We already have him lined up to start a new job in the spring...

Home maintenance repairs, painting, lighting,

We've just had Noel back to our place for the third time in as many years. To date Noel has installed lighting, identified and fixed plumbing issues, repaired drywall (beautifully) before painting walls and ceilings, made repairs to the front steps and our cedar deck...everything is done on time and within budget. Call Noel, he's great!

Noel is excellent. Highly recommend

Noel has worked with us for many years now. He built a Television unit, painted our babies rooms, and trimmed down our kitchen table. His service has been excellent, very trustworthy, and honest about the job prior to commencing (on where or not it can be done or not).
We would recommend his services, highly! He is very talented!

The worst handyman experience ever

I needed someone to paint some rooms and patch a few holes.I found Noel on Google, he quoted me for 3 days worth of labour, $640-960 before tax, $1262 after tax at most.

- Noel would take his sweet time doing the most menial tasks.

- He asked us for a list of things that needed to be done and then didnt look at the list once- thus he ended up missing a few things- walls, base boards.

- Everything he missed, he'd act as if it were an add on to the list of things to do- perhaps part of his ploy to take longer and charge more money.

- He patched a few holes on the walls without painting over them, thus leaving the work for me to do later.

- He attempted to refit our washer and dryer into the laundry room, and ended up breaking the sliding doors, totalling $500 to replace.

- It took him 5 days to do 3 days worth of work, and then tried to charge me $1700- over $400 more than we agreed, for unfinished work that I then had to go back and do myself.

Once I refused t o pay him the new amount, things went from bad to just plain creepy. He went into my house, took a picture with his phone of a family potrait of me, my wife and my son, and emailed the picture to me, telling me that I was setting a bad example, I was being shameful, etc. Who sneaks into peoples homes and takes pictures of them?

Noel Taylor is a very strange man with a horrible work ethic. If you like people ripping you off and taking pictures of you when you're not around, then Noel Taylor's the handyman for you.

If anyone would like a copy of the correspondence between him and my wife and I, feel free to shoot me an email at jeffscatliff@gmail.com

Reading this review only confirms there's one in every crowd.
Find it strange that It took you 3 months to make a review (if you call it that) and feel so desperate to discredit my services as an honest business man trying to support my family.....again shameful. In conclusion, my work speaks for it's self, just read ahead and see the majority of happy customers. I would also like to add that Jeff's (whom was never there, only his wife and mother) review was grossly exaggerated and falsely retold only due to the fact that I confronted them of their dishonest actions in trying to get more work for what I quoted for.

The reviews on this page are the subjective opinion of the Author and not of HomeStars Inc.

More about Noel Taylor

I started from an artistic background, coming from OCAD in the early 90's to working as a Scenic Artist/Carpenter and Prop/Backdrops/Set Builder in the film/TV industry. I have a very good understanding of the way materials work and how they should be used, along with solid custom woodworking skills I have gained over the past 30yrs . My website shows both my artistry and custom build skills - they all come together one way or another. I am known for my finishing and good eye for detail. Please see my picture gallery for reference.
