replace 2 toilets

Charlie was the first to respond to my request for the replacement of 2 toilets in the ladies washroom at our organization. We supplied the new toilets and Charlie installed them quickly and cleanly.
The job was completed in less than two hours with no complications or surprises. Everything works perfectly.
It was a pleasure to deal with someone who is honest and extremely competent. We will definitely contact Mr Rescue again for any Handyman assignments in the future.

Kitchen Fan Exhaust duct & Brackets for Shelves

I called Charlie to fix my kitchen exhaust fan duct that came-off. He arrived promptly and attached the exhaust fan duct right-away. Although, he was busy and I didn't mention it beforehand when I requested him to install some brackets for shelves in my garage he agreed to it and did a solid job. He also provided useful tips. Overall, I am happy with his solid and quick service.

house and porch painting plus indoor and outdoor repairs

We found Charlie on Homestars and are glad we did so. He worked quickly and efficiently and brought materials we needed, providing receipts. He also pointed out several problems we hadn't even noticed, such as rotting wood on our porch stairs.

He was most pleasant to be around and his rates are fair. Highly recommended.

Fixed lights, faucets, gate, broken railing, disconnected downspouts, anchored curtain rod, and

Charlie is a thoroughly reliable and efficient service provider. He did everything I asked him to do, sourced some obscure parts and gave me great maintenance tips. His prices are reasonable, and he is honest, kind and smart. I would easily hire him again!

Replacing valves and plumbing for basement sink and washer

Charlie wasn't the first guy I called for the job but after the other handyman bailed (three times) I gave him a call. Next day he came as scheduled and the job was done. That's what i need, someone who is true to his word and knows what he is doing. I'd gladly recommend Charlie.

I found Charlie on homestars and decided to try him out because of his ratings. He came to look at the project to be done, gave us a price and told us in detail what needed to be done. He was prompt, professional and did a fantastic job!!!! I love my new countertop!! I would recommend him to anybody!!
Thanks Charlie

Changing castors on large TV stand

I found Charlie through this Homestars website and decided to take a chance based on all his good reviews. Happy to say that Charlie did an excellent job and I would not hesitate to hire him again. He knew what he was doing; very polite, co-operative, and patient. He is very professional and takes customer satisfaction seriously. A pleasure to deal with .

Painting Exterior Steel Door and Install a box of Vinyl Tiles

Charlie is a reliable handyman and we are all very pleased with the work he did for us. He was able to return our call promptly on a Sunday afternoon and completed the work efficiently and on time. On the day of the job, he arrived punctually at 8:30 in the morning and finished the job by lunch time.

First Review

9/10

Hook up a baseboard heater, caulking the gaps, drywall small hole, installing the baseboards and light fixture.

I had a horrible contractor who kept postponing the work completion on the rental unit and I had to fire him to do the work promptly.

I called a few handymen. Charlie was the first one who returned the call. He came the same day to give the estimate and schedule the work. Although he was busy and I had to wait for a week and let the tenant to move in. Charlie came and completed all the agreed work in very tidy manner not disturbing the tenant.
He is very polite and does very good job. I will be very happy to hire him again.

power washed deck, installed toilet, blinds, replaced several light fixtures, a door handle and various other misc, items

Charlie came to my rescue after I got a totally unreasonable quote from a house prep company as I am getting set to sell my house. I wish I had found him long agao. He took the time out to come to the house, give me a reasonable quote and squeezed me in a few days later so I could meet my time-line. He did exactly what he said he would do and more. Everytime he ran into a snag (and there were some since my house is old) he came to me to give me my options and he always had a reasonable solution. He is meticulous including when he cleans up. He was so flexible, accommodating me when I threw in a few more small items I found while he was there. When I did not like one of the light fixtures I had purchased he agreed to take it down and said if I purchased a new one that night he would be back tomorrow to put it up for me - no extra charge - who does that these days? Well Charlie does. If you have never seen what power washing does to your deck you have to see it. Fantastic, why would you ever need to build a new deck. the few new decking pieces he put in are hardly noticeable. Charlie will be my only choice for future work and he will be recommended to all my friends, family and clients.
