modify and reinstall aluminium downspout

Andrew arrived promptly, quickly understood our requirements, and immediately got to work with a will. He worked non-stop until the job was completed. He was a pleasure to deal with and we feel we got a very good job for a fair price.
Andrew told us he is skilled at tackling most 'handy man', and we've put his number in our contacts list in case we have other needs.
Thanks Andrew. It was nice to meet you.

Great Communication!

I contacted Andrew regarding completing several handyman projects including installing a new bathroom vanity. Andrew communicated well with me from our initial conversation to even after the job was completed. Andrew takes pride in his work and wants to ensure his work is completed to your satisfaction. He doesn't take on a task that's not in his skill sets and is willing to admit that is the case. Andrew was willing to go above and beyond to resolve any issues that came along on his journey to completing the projects. It was lovely working with Andrew and I would definitely recommend him for handyman services.

Dresser assembly

I hired Andrew to help with the assembly of a chest of drawers. He was really patient and did the job carefully even though he was getting late for another appointment. I would gladly hire him again next time.

Dear Sucheta, it is so kind of you to note that and let me assure you, I made it Just-In-Time!! Thanks for your hospitality during my work. I trust the extra attention will ensure you continued use of the drawers for a long time! I'd be pleased to help you or your friends with any similar task, regards, Andrew.

Bathroom renovation after flooding

Thorough analysis of damage including thermal imaging of walls where mould could potentially form. Tear down of drywall and reconstruction ( still to be completed ) of wall. This company is professional from A to Z -very knowledgable in all areas of what issues may arise in a home and how to go about fixing them. They will go above and beyond the call of duty to satisfy the customer. I highly recommend GOHI for anyone looking for an inspector and/or contractor to address difficult issues.

Company Response

Thank you Cathy for the confidence and acceptance concerning the Thermographic Survey. It was useful in ensuring we didn't apply a quick fix with mold developing (again) later. Being able to identify the area of water damage for removal and repair prevented additional cost and rework. Look forward to the completion!

Odd Handyman Jobs

Andrew did several odd jobs for me, touch-up painting, caulking, install a window air conditioner and fixed some kitchen cabinet handles. He is very friendly, on time and takes pride in his work. He wanted to make sure I was completely satisfied with his work before he left. He was very neat and cleaned up after himself. I am extremely satisfied with his work and you couldn't ask for a better person. I highly recommend him and will definitely call him again should the need arise. Thanks Andrew for a very positive and pleasant experience. Sue
