I needed gravel spread and was very satisfied with the finished product. Ralph responded right away to my request, and had Darryl Murkerson get with me. He did an excellent job, was fast and a really nice guy. I’d recommend both of these guys for any work you need done. I’ll definitely be calling them again!

It helped save my life. I recently lost my Husband and his income. My air conditioner went out. My Windows are painted shut. So I thought about adding screens to the burglar iron doors. My Husband was the epitome of a Handyman. With him suddenly and unexpectedly dead and his income too, I felt helpless but not hopeless. I put a request in on Angie’s list. Got four calls. One couldn’t help. One I couldn’t afford. One kept promising to come but did not. But “Handyman” Bidwell Company made and kept an appointment with me, accessed the job, went and priced the cost, provided a reasonable cost that I could afford, accepted the job, made the frame and screens. Today I opened both the front porch and side Carport doors and let God’s breeze of fresh air circulate my lungs and my home, I feel pleased and wonderfully blessed to be able to breathe in my home especially since I suffer from acute asthma. I appreciate their quick turn around, their courteous customer service and professionalisms. Sending a special Thank you to the Bidwell Company and a special “Thank You” to Sawyer Bidwell. Thank You Cynthia Kellum

Got to meet most of the Bidwell family, Papa Ralph, daughters Aliea and Julia, son Sawyer and daughter-in-law Emily. End result far exceeded expectations. The kids were respectful, worked non stop, showed up on time and left at the requested time. Never heard a nasty word and they dressed appropriately. They never even spilled a drop of paint! As a matter of fact they are coming back next week to repair the fence in the back yard.

Ralph was excellent. His bid was in line with my expectation. He was prompt, kept me informed of his progress, finished on time, sent pictures of the work and gave me a detailed invoice. Excellent. It is hard to find someone who can do all of these things, but Ralph exceeded my expectations.

He is superb. In 10 years I have never let anyone else in my house but him and you can't hire a better person. His work is impeccable and he is trustworthy. Everyone I have referred him to feels the same. I can't recommend him enough and I will definitely hire him again for anything in the future.

This is how it is supposed to work. I couldn't be more pleased with how things turned out. My mother was unable to get the water to turn off in her shower. I called Ralph and explained the problem. He contacted her, came by that morning, and promptly fixed the problem. By my mother's account, he was professional, friendly, timely, and knowledgeable.

Ralph was great from the start-I explained upfront I was looking for someone to finish what someone else didn't. He was super nice and very willing to do that-not just everyone would be. Not only that, but in talking through some issues I was having with my heating/cooling system (it was cooling and heating great, but the drip pan had rusted out....the unit is old!)-he came up with a fix it solution to keep us in business until it just finally quits for sure! Much appreciated-he is great and totally trustworthy to be around your home. I will call him again with any future needs...a quality find!

Richard D.

While I’m fairly handy around the house, I have never felt comfortable doing electrical work other than changing switches/outlets. Thus, I contacted Ralph and he was able to come out the same day. He arrived on-time and is very professional and personable. He took the time to carefully evaluate each of the four separate outlets that I wanted to be addressed. Ralph mentioned that all of these were fairly easy to fix and if I had the time he would show what needed to be done. This would have have been easily $500-$600 yet he took the time to share his knowledge instead. This behavior clearly demonstrates he is more interested in building long-term relationships instead of making a quick buck. Having someone you trust to work on your home is essential so it’s not surprising that I would highly recommend contacting Ralph for any projects around your house.

Gave Mr. Bidwell a call and he was extremely responsive, even coming out the same day to look at the leak. He didn't charge me for his time and he pinpointed the source of the leak immediately. He also gave me some expert advice on another plumbing matter. Great first interaction and I will definitely call him again for my plumbing needs.
