Posted by: Loretta Barefoot in Virginia Beach, VA.Posted: January 20th, 2011 04:01PM
I hired a handyman from a company called vinyl solutions to do some work on my house. His name was Kenneth Frie. There was wood rot around my windows and it caused leaking in my house. His crew was very professional. He told me that he would have it replaced and finished in 2 days and it was. I am very satisfied with their work He is truly a perfectionist I highly recommend him for your jobs also. He is professional and witty. I contacted him through his email at kenneth@advancevinylsolutions.com

Handyman
Amount: $30.00 per hour
Posted by: Happyhome in Freehold, NJ.Posted: August 2nd, 2010 08:08AM
There is nothing like a responsible handyman who is confident in his work. His deal is simple pay him 30 dollars per hr or what you think it is worth. Lets put it this way I always pay him more then 30 per hr. He will share his ideas, asks specifics as to what I expect and looking for in a job. He is neet,timely, clean and respectful. He alwys tells me he will work on my home like it is his own, He always presents me options along the way. He says he does it for the exersise instead of joining a gym.
This guy is definately customer orientated!

Posted by: Jim Swanson in Dearborn, MI.Posted: September 1st, 2009 11:09PM
I am not sure of the hourly wage cause they charged by the job they tore out my old bathroom and put in a new one. They're work was exceptional and they were very respectful of our home the entire bathroom cost me $2800, which was a bargain because the next lowest quote was $3900. I would recommend them to anyone and I have been telling everyone.

Comforts of Home. Pulaski, VA
Amount: $45.00 per hour
Posted by: Linda Smith in Pulaski, VA.Posted: July 11th, 2009 04:07PM
We used the above service to install a new waterheater, install a shut off valve, install a dehumidifier, replace faucets in the batahroom and a few smaller jobs. This guy is great. He works alone and is a true perfectionist. We paid a total bill but it averaged about $38 an hour plus "trip fees" that he only charge mileage for. We ar so happy and have never found anyone in this area that is this reliable. He even had to make a weekend call on the water heater and did not charge extra-the plumer said it would be $65 an hour from the time he left his shop to return to the shop and two hour min. We had it all done for less that we would have paid for just the water heater installation. P.S. I found out this is the same man that the lady wrote about but the post said he charged $700 PER HOUR-it was $700 for the entire job.

Bath and Kitchen Floors
Amount: $700.00 per hour
Posted by: Betty Dyson in Pulaski, VA.Posted: April 21st, 2009 11:04PM
We hired a man in Pulaski, VA to replace the tile in three bathrooms and our kitchen. The baths were stick down tile and the kitchen was laminate.
He had to take up old flooring in all three baths and even removed the dishwasherm frige and stove in the kitchen. The work is craftsman quality and I am sure anyone else would have been 2-3 times more. We go to the same church and think maybe he gave us an exceptional break. I have never seen anyone do more professional work than he has done.

Hire this guy he is the best.
