We are a small, hands on full service home repair and improvement company with emphasis on excellent customer service. The single biggest complaint we hear about others in our industry is "didn't call back or no one showed up". We will personally answer your call, never an answering service, and in the event we're unable to do so, will return your call promptly. In addition, "they never showed up" will never happen when working with us, guaranteed. We respect the value of your time.
A clean work site on larger projects is essential and leaving no trace on smaller repairs is equally important. We "work clean" with respect for your property and those who live there. We have a well established customer base of long term relationships because of these fundamentals that we believe are critical to establishing and maintaining a working relationship with our customers. We look forward to working with you, contact us for your next simple repair, big or small, or you next home improvement project, you'll notice the difference.
