Rather than doing a complete remodel of our 70-year-old bathroom and our unfinished laundry room, we decided to have the bathroom walls patched and repainted and the laundry room cinder block walls and unfinished ceiling (including pipes and vents) painted. Carlos went above and beyond, performing excellent work throughout. Both rooms look fantastic thanks to his careful repair and painting, makin...

They put up 3 people, 1st is knowledgeable and the 2nd assistant. but the 3rd one is not needed I think. Next time, they should bring all knowledgeable person only. They also quoted wrong price and suddenly changed it on the actual job. I will never hire them again, they are shady.

My HOA required me to paint a shutter on the outside of my townhouse. Carissa and Jimena were 'super fast' to to get my appointment scheduled. Jorge Falcones did a professional paint job on the shutter. As I was out of town when the work was performed, he sent me pictures while the work was being performed so that I could see the required steps were performed (sanding, priming). When Jorge was don...

Jim the Handyman did an excellent job and help me discover other places that needed repair not accessible from the ground level. All the repairs were made at an affordable price. I will certainly use them again as need arises.

I had very limited availability & scheduling was very easy. Carlos showed up early & made quick work of the new blind installation. I’d definitely use this company again.

Jim the Handyman was able to get someone out to provide an estimate which was extremely reasonable and then they scheduled someone to come out the next day. The work was done magnificently and we were able to get our painting project done that weekend. So thankful for this team!

We had a large crack in our ceiling that needed to be addressed before we could finish a DIY painting project that we had already started. Our home was in shambles and we needed help fast.

Very well. I had 2 different guys. The first one (too bad I can't remember his name but he was great) fixed the bedroom door and the closet door. Professional, friendly, neat, and the repairs looked good. The second guy, Franco, re-caulked 2 showers, and installed a house number and a water hose hanger on a brick wall. He was on time, professional, neat, checked with me to make sure he understood ...

We have used Jim the Handyman several times over the years - they have always completed their work properly, on time and on budget. I thought I needed new slider doors, and they told me they could swap out the wheels which worked well. They also repaired our attic/roofline where some squirrels had chewed through and you can't even tell where it happened. We will continue to use them for projects l...

The work done was very good. We went back and forth over whether to install a vinyl or wood railing, finally settling on wood. I asked them to match what was existing on my porch. The handrail matched well, but the balusters were made from a lower grade wood with visible knots and defects, where the existing was clear pine. The handiwork on the railing was excellent. It is too bad they didn't spen...
