Playground Set

We had purchased a large slide/swing set for our backyard so our son can enjoy the playground at home, while Covid-19 closed all the playgrounds near our house. Captain Handy was fairly priced, and did a great job of putting together the cedar playset. We were very pleased with their services, and hope to use them again. Our son loves playing on the slide and is a lot happier that he has a playground to play on outside.

Captain handy did a great job on my backyard. They removed my old retaining wall and install new concrete wall. Also, they did a proper grading, so I can enjoy my full backyard. Thank you guys for my backyard reno.

Backyard reno

I called Alex for an appointment and he came and provided me with a quote the same day. He installed the artificial grass with the cedar siding on the garage and with small cedar fence. Everything was stained and now it's looks gorgeous. I couldn't be more satisfied with Captain Handy.

Deck repair and backyard landscaping

It was a pleasure working with Alex and his crew, couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I requested an estimate to have my deck repaired and backyard landscaped and had a response very quickly. Alex and crew did a fantastic job on both, very pleased with my new garden. I would absolutely recommend CaptAin Handy.

Concrete Step Repair

The front steps which lead up to my house where cracked. I called Captain Handy and Alex come to my house the next day. We had a very proactive and efficient discussion and found a solution. The quote was very accurate. Professional, quality work was done and it solved my problem. I highly recommend their experience and services.

Intrerlock paving

Alex and his team have excellent service! The communication, quotation, support, and paving services were exactly what we expected. We ordered interlock driveway paving and the job has been completed with high-quality! I can recommend them!

Bathroom Renovation

I can't say enough good things about Alex and Muki. They came to our rescue after I had to fire the contractor I initially hired for our bathroom (an all around horrible experience).
A good chunk of work had already been done, but it had been done poorly with sloppy shortcuts taken everywhere. No matter for Captain Handy, though. They worked tirelessly from morning to night, including the weekend, to fix the previous contractor's mess and give me my bathroom back in a timely fashion. The bathroom now looks absolutely amazing, and their workmanship and professionalism instantly eased the anxiety and frustration I had been feeling up until that point. My only regret is not hiring them from the start, but these guys are now my go-to people for future work. Now do yourself a favour and stop spending any more time reading reviews and just call them up - you won't regret it at all.

Small Deck For Me

I needed to renew my broken deck urgently just before all the mess started. I asked Alex and Muky to do it as soon as possible and they made me a new deck in 3 days. They ordered and delivered the Siena wood for it the next day and the team come and started the same day. These guys are super fast and quality is worth the price, it was a good deal for me.
