Laundry and built ins

We had John come in and help us clean up our laundry room with a new tub, shelves and dryer vent. He also built 2 builts in for us in living room and family room. He was amazing. I would definitely use his services again.

Fix and paint front porch and odd jobs

My porch has gone from tired looking and rickety to beautiful and secure. John checked the porch over and rebuilt several steps. He then sanded and stained the porch. It looks like new! John also helped out with several odd jobs around the house - from figuring out how to hang a fern out on my back patio, to fixing doors and gate latches. Pretty Handy Guy is a real pleasure to work with!

Handyman work, carpentry

We were instantly comfortable having John in our home. He was courteous and incredibly easy to work with, and his work was high quality. We had a long list of household “to do” items that had been building for a couple of years - finally I gave in and called John when it was apparent there was no way I would/could get to them all in time (we are expecting our second child in June) - he saved the day. Best money we ever spent. He took care of plumbing, washroom repair, painting, wall repair, carpentry work, furniture assembly...you name it. We will definitely be calling him again for any additional projects. Highly recommend! Thank you John!!! We can’t say enough nice things.

Girls room drywall

The reviews should be come earlier. This is second times I request John to help out our project. The job has been done very perfect, John work hard and take his job very serious. I have never worried my project, because I know once John tell you he can do the project, then he will make it perfect. Highly recommend.

Built in shelves, new mantlepiece and fireplace surround

I would highly recommend Pretty Handy Guy! He did an exceptional job on our built - in shelving, reframing the fireplace
and installing shiplap over the mantle. He listened to what we wanted to do, provided design choices and the result is fantastic!
He gave us a timeline when he started and finished in a timely manner. Very happy with his work and it has transformed our family room.

Drywall and painting

I had water damage in my basement. So, to fix it, had to remove some of the drywall.

Since I am not a handyman, I needed help in putting in a drywall and at the same time decided to repaint my finished basement (make lemonade out of lemons kind of thing). John was just great. He was punctual, very personable and did an absolutely amazing job. It is as if nothing happened. Also very clean and no mess left behind.

I would HIGHLY recommend his services and wouldn't think twice of reaching out for his help in any future projects I may have.

Flooring, Ceiling repair, Trim, Bathroom repair

John is a pretty handy guy and we are pleased with the work he did in our home. He put a new floor in the laundry room, installed trim in the bathroom, repaired a ceiling and a bedroom wall along with bathroom repair. John is reliable and hard working and I would recommend him.
