More in Handyman
Our trained and reliable staff can help you replace, repair or maintain anything on your property. Not into DIY, or realize you're in over your head on that project you started? ABC can help cross all those items off your to-do list, be they large or small.
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.
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.
With time, mildew, dust, dirt and pollen build 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.
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.
Our handyman pros can also handle:
Carpentry tasks, whether that involves building a deck, repairing wood rot, adding crown molding, framing a door or fixing cabinets or stairs
Tile or grout repair when you have broken or missing tiles
Hanging a new door
Replacing a torn screen
Installing air conditioner registers
Mounting wall TVs
ABC’s handyman 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 make contact with our office and tell us about what you have in mind, 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, 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.
We don't. We also do more extensive, multi-day projects, but we tend to find that most homeowners projects are relatively small and can be done in a few hours. 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 (carpenters, painters, wallboard experts, etc.) operate on a flat-fee basis to take care of a range of home improvement tasks within a specified time period.
However, we necessary, larger multi-day painting or carpentry jobs will be priced and performed on a written estimate basis with the scope of the job provided in detailed & written bid form.
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.
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 handled 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, tape, 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.
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. Depending on workload, some projects can be started in only a couple of days, while others may take several days for other projects to finish so the right craftsmen can be re-directed to your project. Reach out today, and we'll get you on our schedule.
ABC’s craftsman will arrive to your home with the tools and basic supplies needed for your project. If your projects require additional materials, we recommend purchasing those ahead of time—especially for the half day or full day projects. That ensures the maximum amount of the craftsman's time is going to the hands-on work of your project and not shopping. This works especially well for paint or deck and fence repair projects where you can purchase those materials and have them on hand. That way, your specialist will be able to focus time on getting your projects done instead of at the store. However, we're always glad to make the run to a supply store if the materials are needed and you are unable to get them on site in advance.
There are few things you can do to make the best use of the time the specialist has in your home:
Before your handyman arrives, move furniture away from the work area
Keep pets and children away from the area where the handyman is working
Be available to answer any questions your specialist might have while they are on site
