Service Provider Response

Thank you, it was a joy working for you.



The Chief arrived, concentrated all his effort on the job, completely accomplished the repair, and tidied the area before he left. He was flexible in scheduling the work, focused on the work at hand without taking breaks, and left no mess for me to clean. The columns look like new. He was quite pleasant and entirely professional. I asked for his business card and will call him to do repair work in the future.

Description of Work
Repair of column bases on the porch of my house.

Archange C.

Mr. Kreis went out of his way to work me into his schedule and ensure the repair was completed before my appraisal and home inspection. The work was completed quickly and professionally, and the repaired part of the door frame blended in perfectly with the original wood.

Description of Work
I had a door frame with badly rotted wood that I needed repaired on a short time frame since I was planning to sell my house. Mr. Kreis proposed a solution using PVC instead of wood to keep the problem from reoccurring. A previous contractor told me the entire frame and door would need to be replaced. Mr. Kreis saved me approximately $1,200 dollars with essentially the same end result. . .and probably better, since with their solution the problem would have eventually reoccurred.

It was a great experience to have this handyman. We are in process of fixing home to sell, and had become overwhelmed with it all. He was able to come two days after first contact. Was very punctual and efficient. He did not mind us finding new little things for him to do while he was working. We are very pleased with his workmanship, and will use him again if needed for final fixes.
