After 17 years of doing construction on the side, alongside music ministry, I decided it is time to follow my passion and do it full time. I love the proccess of discovering the dream behind a project and making it reality. Few things beat the feeling from seeing a customer satisfied with a job well done - often becoming a friend during the course of the project, and being referred to their family and friends.

We put our customers first and make them the most important thing. With out our customers we have nothing. Also we say no job is too small and we mean it. Lots of times there's something simple that someone just doesn't have time to complete because of their busy schedule and thats where we come in... most companies charge too much for these types of jobs with set fees and mileage and other things we don't charge like that. We have a set hourly rate and thats it if it takes us 15 minutes to do a job we charge for that 15 min job simple as that. So hey no job is too small we got your back

We take pride in our craftsmanship, mostly it's the quality that separate us bc we let our work speak for itself... WE DON'T DO WOOD!! We are not carpenters!!!! When the customer come up with something unique and we are able to build it just as they picture it. The look on there faces and smiles bc knowing we gave them just what they wanted, it's the feeling when you know that you gave them there hard earned money worth or what they wanted.. We don't do any wood fences or anything with wood!!!...

Does a handyman need a license?

Many states have a “Handyman Exemption” that only requires a license for jobs over $500 to $10,000 or more, varying by state. In other states, a license is mandatory for all work. Many states also require worker’s compensation and liability insurance to protect against damage or accidents.

Do you tip a handyman?

Handymen don't expect a tip. If the handyman goes above and beyond or spends more time than expected, a tip is appreciated. Most homeowners tip a handyman $10 to $20 or between 10% and 15% of the total job.
