He was amazing! He was adamant about fixing it right instead of just fixing it quickly. He was friendly and professional and I'm very happy with the repair.

What handyman tasks can you do?

Our skilled and reliable staff can help you replace, repair or maintain anything on your property. Not into DIY, or realized you're in over your head on that project you started? ABC can help cross all those items off your to-do list, whether they're large or small.

Electrical Services

ABC customers can benefit from our licensed electricians to take care of your electrical projects, including hanging your ceiling fan, installing lighting and chandeliers, and replacing light switches and outlets.

Window Cleaning

Struggling to find time and the right tools to keep your windows looking their best? ABC uses reverse osmosis and deionization to remove dirt, grime and mineral build-up so you have a streak-free view at home year-round.

Power Washing

In Austin, mildew, dust, dirt and pollen builds up on our home’s exterior, as well as our driveways, patios, decks, fencing and walkways. Having your property power washed can be an easy and inexpensive way to enhance your curb appeal, and ABC has the tools and experience to get the job done right.

Gutter Cleaning

Clogged gutters spell trouble. That buildup of leaves, dirt and debris can cause water to collect around your home’s foundation, leading to significant structural damage over time. If you're lacking the time or the tools to keep your gutters functioning properly, let ABC do the work for you.

How do you set the price for each job?

ABC offers handyman services a couple of different ways. For the times you may have a collection of small tasks or "honey-do's, we offer block service. That's essentially like renting a skilled carpenter or handyman for either 4 hours or 8 hours to complete those tasks.

For larger projects - remodels, extensive painting, large carpentry projects, we'll look at the scope of the work and give you a written estimate.

ABC’s handyman block services are offered by the half day and full day. A half day is four hours and a full day is eight hours. Most homeowners find that their projects can fit into a half day time period.

Once you contact ABC and tell us more about what you would like to have done, we can recommend either a half or full day block. Your work will be scheduled with a craftsman whose skills best fit your projects.

For bigger jobs (remodeling type projects), we’ll send a Specialist to your home to do a walk-through before your project begins. You will be provided with a written estimate which will include all associated costs to get your project done, so you won’t have to deal with hidden costs or any surprises.

How soon can you start on my list?

We understand how time sensitive these jobs can be. Once you contact us, we’ll do our best to get you the earliest possible appointment that fits with your schedule.

We recommend contacting us sooner, rather than later, so that work can get underway as quickly as possible.

What happens if the work is not finished in the time allotted?

In the rare case that all of your projects are not completed when your block of time is up, your ABC craftsman will let you know how much more time is needed to finish the work. At that time, it is up to you to agree to the additional costs associated with the extra time spent.

If you have a list of tasks, we recommend that you prioritize them, so that your most important items are taken care of first. It's also strongly suggested that you have all the materials on hand that the handyman may need to complete your project. They will have all the tools necessary, and basic materials like screws, nails, adhesives, etc. They're more than able to run to a big box store, but any time spent driving or shopping for items, does count as part of the four or eight hour time block. If you know the materials that are needed, but transporting them to your home is problematic, we can sometimes stop and pick them up for you if they've been pre-purchased. Ask about that as an option when scheduling your time.

What equipment or materials do I need to have on hand?

ABC’s craftsman will arrive to your home with the tools and basic supplies needed for your project. If your projects require other materials, we recommend that you purchase those ahead of time. That way, your Specialist will be able to focus the time getting your projects done instead of at the store.

Why do you only schedule four or eight hour time blocks?

We find that most homeowners contact us with a list of jobs they need to have done. Rather than give an estimate for a small job, ABC’s experienced craftsmen operate on a flat-fee basis to take care of a range of home improvement tasks within a specified time period.

With ABC’s help, homeowners can save precious free time and avoid any possible repair or installation mistakes that may cause problems in the long run.

What qualifications do ABC’s craftsmen have?

When you choose ABC for your handyman projects, you benefit from in-house expertise in pest control, lawn care, air conditioning and heating, plumbing, electrical work and appliance repair. Why just call any plumber or electrician when you can have a licensed ABC professional taking care of your home?

All ABC employees undergo rigorous background checks and drug screening so that you can feel safe with ABC on your property. In addition, our friendly and experienced service team carries the appropriate licenses and certifications to perform work in your home.
