Justin and Odd Job were great !. They Listened to my problems and explained their solutions clearly and effectively. They were also a pleasure to have around while they worked.
They are professional, tidy,clean and efficient.They do such a good job I use them for my business as well.

On this particular visit the Odd job crew stripped and re-polished the the concrete counter tops, installed floating shelves and built & installed custom shelving in our closet.

Ceiling repair, painting

I contracted Justin to fix my ceiling which suffered water damage and also to fix a large hole in my wall. He did an excellent job fixing both. I then asked to have the room painted where the water damage occurred, he delivered again and did a great job. His estimations are fair and accurate. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again or recommend his services to someone else.

porch repair and fix kitchen cabinet

I called Odd Job because we were stuck, one kitchen cabinet door and it's weren't working properly, and hadn't been since we'ed moved in. the front step risers were rotting out and showing it badly. It was time to call a professional, i was in over my head.

Odd Job was on time, Justin was fantastic. I realised after he left what I liked about him most - which is that I immediately trusted him and he treated me with respect from the get go. As a young, female home owner, I've had servicemen, contractors and tons of others come into my home and talk down to me/ ask to speak to my husband (I'm not married) and at worst (best?) ask to speak to my parents (who I don't live with). I really appreciate that he explained things to me, was confident that everything could be fixed and gave me an honest quote.

The cabinet works perfect, the front steps are beautiful yet again, which makes me happy. I will use them again when I have the need, thanks Odd Job

Hi Ashley! We're really glad to hear that you were pleased with our work, and we hope your porch steps last for years. We'd also like to thank you for sharing some of your experiences with other contractors. It's unfortunate that the chauvinist attitudes you addressed are so prevalent in our industry. It's great to know that you had a different experience with our team. Thanks for the review!

We had a laundry list of things to get repaired and updated in our home. We called Odd Job and they got the job done right.

I was completely satisfied with the service. The handymen were fast, friendly offered effective solutions to my odd list of problems and did the job right. I will not hesitate to use odd job again, on my home or investment properties.

Odd Job came to my home to hang a few floating shelves in a very particular spot in the family room, and some how deal with a wall that had previously done duty as a cork board.

I am very happy with the results and professionalism of Odd Job, they arrived on time, were friendly and easy to deal with. My shelves are perfect and the wall looks as if nothing had ever been there in the first place.

We will be calling Odd Job for our next project for sure.

Painting balcony, closet doors; off jobs around the house

I asked Justin to do a few odd jobs around the house, as well as paint our balcony. I am quite happy with how the balcony turned out. Other things were done well, and on time, but I do feel I was overcharged for the work.

Justin removed a window pane for our home. He was diligent and thorough. He insulated and blocked the window, rebuilt and reinstalled the frame within a few days. He seemed trustworthy, honest and efficient. I will use his service again. Marc

More about Odd Job Handyman Services

ABOUT US

Odd Job Handyman Services began in 2008 with one man and his truck. It's since grown to be one of the largest and most reliable contractors in Toronto, serving thousands of homeowners and businesses throughout the city. On Feb. 16, 2017, it was one of five handyman services in Ontario to be officially named "Best of 2017" by Homestars, the largest network of home professionals in Canada.

Odd Job offers a wide range of services including drywall, painting, tiling, flooring, millwork, hanging, junk removal, furniture assembly, basic plumbing & electrical and all general repairs. The work performed by Odd Job is covered by a two-year warranty.

The staff at Odd Job is fully licensed, bonded and insured, and every member has been background-and-identity-checked. They're hand-selected from the "best of the best" in local professional circles (each with at least three positive references) and subjected to a series of in-shop tests before they're admitted into the team.

HISTORY

It all started with Justin George, an exceptionally-handy property manager who had great difficulty convincing professional contractors to visit his building for "small jobs." Justin, a red seal tradesman, was so tired of contractors telling him "it wasn't worth their time" that he was forced to take care of most of the repairs and maintenance himself.

He realized he was far from the only person who was in this predicament. There were many people without the time, the tools or the talent to recaulk their shower stall, hang their favourite paintings or repair a few pot lights.

Not everyone trusts the mystery men on Craigslist and Kijiji, and so Justin wanted to provide them a professional option. "It might be a small job, but it's a big deal," Justin said, "People need a company that treats it that way."

Mr. George graduated from George Brown College with a degree in mechanical engineering and from the University of Western Ontario in 2011 with a degree in technological education, manufacturing and construction. He is an Accredited Manufacturing and Construction Educator and a member in good standing of the Association of Certified Handyman Professionals (ACHP). He loves cats, guitar and building things (anything). His most important values are honesty, quality and consistency and his motto is: "There's always a way to get the job done right."
