The overall job went well. Mark was able to fix and re-install a part that we thought might not be able to be re-installed. Will definatley call them again in future.

I needed to open a passthru in the wall between the kitchen and dining room and called Green Acorn. Nathan who completed most of the work was punctual, polite and very knowledgeable about what he does. I'm very pleased with the work and will definitely hire this company for the next job.

I had a broken cold water handle in my soaker tub so I decided it was time to update my faucet. After discovering Green Acorn also did plumbing I had them come out to do the repair. As always they were on time and on budget. Which was way less than quotes I received from other companies. I have used Green Acorn 3 x now and will continue to do so.

Prompt response to every inquiry. Provided a detailed estimate with reasonable, fair prices. Came on time when scheduled and worked with us to meet our needs and time frames. Performed excellent work to our satisfaction and even did more than we asked at no extra charge. It was not a bit uncomfortable having them in our home!

I had a second-floor bathroom that was leaking onto the ceiling below. The contractor quickly determined that the leak was coming from the toilet, and did the obvious thing of replacing the wax seal. He then carefully tested and found that there was still a leak, so he looked further and found that the toilet drain pipe had not been properly glued to the sewer pipe. This was the original problem. He removed and reglued the pipe, put the toilet back with yet another wax seal, tested again, and repaired and painted the ceiling. He did this all in one day, and gave us a discount because he felt it took him too long. The repair was two months ago and it's still fine. This is my second experience with Granny's Helper and just as positive as the first.

We were very impressed with every aspect of this contractor's work. They were on time and very thorough in completing their work. They cleaned up after their work and actually went above and beyond the work that I contracted for. They were awesome! I highly recommend them!

What a difference. My shed went unused for almost a year while I tried to find someone to work on it. Granny's Helper was thorough from the start. They came out and measured the shed roof and went over all options with me. The roof was rebuilt the way it should have been initially. Great quality work and a great team. Highly recommend.

The installation went as expected. The installers arrived on time, installed the fan quickly, tested it and showed me how to use the remote control. I was very pleased and asked what else the company does in case another unrelated job came up.

My experience was perfect. I usually loathe dealing with this kind of thing however, Mark made it painless and quite frankly a pleasant experience.

Description of Work
I had multiple services preformed. Drywall, wood, paint repair. Damages created by my precious little fur kid. Drywall, baseboard repair, patio stair repair and kitchen island spindle repair. I contacted them and received a call back right away. Although busy, they managed to come out and complete the services sooner than expected. Mark was my point man, he was responsive through text and phone calls. I sent pictures of the work I needed done and he made a visit to the property to discuss. They were very thorough and professional. The repairs were clean and previous damage was undetectable. I was also pleased with the cost. Mark and his staff were clean and conscientious. I have and will continue to recommend.

Mark and George from Granny's Helpers are the absolute best, on time, every time, very professional, knowledgeable in all aspects of home maintenance and both of these gentlemen are great guys. If you are looking for perfection for your home maintenance projects, look no further. Our phone calls are returned promptly and our projects are scheduled in a very timely manner. We highly recommend Granny's Helpers to our friends and neighbors.

I have had Granny's helper out to my home on many occasions through out the past 18 months. They have done a variety of work for me which includes: Installing Electrical Outlets/Switches Installing Ceiling Fans Replacing / Installing Electrical Fixtures / Dimmer Switches / Lights Painting Drywall Work Gutter Clearning Stand Alone Vent Hood Installation Carpentry Curtain Rod Hanging Dryer Vent Cleaning (Other Work As Needed) I must say that this is the most professional handyman service that I have ever used. They are meticulous in every job that they do and they also clean up after themselves. I have enjoyed not only the great work that they have done, but also the explanations of what they are doing and why. They are very trustworthy and are willing to discuss and tackle any project that you throw at them. They are very reasonable in their pricing and are willing to work around schedules to make sure that the job gets done (and gets done right). They are easy to get a hold of and respond quickly to requests. In addition, they provide an excellent level of customer service that is getting "rarer" in this service-based industry. I can honestly say that if I had the money, they would be at my home to tackle all of the projects that I have that need to be completed. Choose them - you won't go wrong and you definitely will not be disappointed.

George did most of the work with Mark standing by to learn and run errands [i.e., more paint, plumbing parts, etc.] George is very meticulous and takes a lot of pride in his work. He takes a bit longer to get it just right and won't leave until both HE and YOU are satisfied. We have been using Granny's for many years for various jobs and keep going back to them because we know we'll be charged a reasonable fee and get good work done.

Karen S.

I contacted Granny's Helper in June to see about getting several things done, and selected them because they were a company that said they could complete all tasks for us. They said they could not get us in for "at least a week". After a month I contacted them again and was told they had taken on too much work and wouldn't be able to get to us. One of the things we needed to have done was cleaning and sealing our handicapped ramp. It is new, and we were told to get it done in the early spring. We were already late getting someone, but thought it would be ok to wait another week for a reputable company that said it could take care of four different repairs. Over the next month the wood on the handicapped ramp cupped. We ended up hiring another company. (I am not supposed to say in a review, but feel free to contact me -- I recommend them highly. They are also on Angie's List.) I consider it completely unprofessional to have told us they could do the work for us in about a week, and then apparently taking on other jobs so that they no longer had time for ours. I give them a big thumbs down.

They didn't do work they had agreed to do, after keeping us waiting several weeks
