Picture Hanging

Needed to find an experienced picture hanger in less than 48 hours that could hang and level 20 pictures equally spaced apart in a window of 1.5 hrs for a private event. Justin was quick to reply to my request, friendly and able to complete the job in 1 hr. Very happy with results and customer service. Thank you OddJob. Would definitely hire them again.

Minor fixes and odd jobs in our condo

We called Odd Jobs to fix minor issues in our condo that were giving us headaches for awhile. We needed to get the hinges on two doors fixed so the doors would properly open and close. We got the caulking redone in our bathtub and bathroom vanity and replaced our bath spout. We also had a large hole patched up and some areas that needed to be sanded down and ready for paint. The last thing we had the contractor do was put up a dart board and remove a plastic piece off our wall that was screwed on too tight.

My husband and I were very happy with the whole process from beginning to end. Justin came to our condo to do our estimate and was very nice and professional. Communication onwards was always clear and concise. We had Shawn, a senior contractor who was punctual, friendly and made us feel comfortable right away. Shawn was professional, efficient and we are satisfied with the finished results. Now we can breathe a sigh of relief when we look around.

Overall, I think the prices are pretty reasonable based on the fact that you really can't get any contractors to come out and fix these small, odd jobs. We would definitely recommend Odd Jobs handy services!

Plumbing and Electrical

I had a really good experience with the experts at Odd Jobs. Our Electrician and Plumber both came with a great attitude and were very professional. The work was done quickly and professionally. The only issue was timing. Unfortunately, I had to wait around for several hours for the Electrician who was behind on another job. It was frustrating, but when he arrived, he was very kind and apologetic and I'm pretty forgiving.

Thanks for the nice review, Heather! We're sorry you had to wait so long for the electrician -- we are definitely working on ways to improve our subcontractor relations.

The Doors

My older house had some of the first insulated steel doors and the weatherstripping was toast. I wanted someone to get the right stuff and stop the cold air leaking around three exterior doors. I also had a busted sliding closet door that needed to be replaced. The technician came with all of the material and closet door system he needed. He was friendly and prepared -- he had a bigger range of fasteners than some hardware stores. When I later noticed a problem with my deadbolt no longer working on the weatherstripped front door, he came on a Saturday to fix it. I like that they stand by their work and can efficiently do a wide range of tasks.

Installing light fixture

We were very happy with this company. There was a problem with our fixture (not the fault of Odd Job) and we had to defer using the particular model but Odd Job was very helpful in guiding us on next steps and reducing their price dramatically. We have no hesitation in calling them to help us with this again when the new model is ready to go.

Another Successful odd job by Odd Job Handyman Services

I stumbled across Odd Job Handyman Services approximately two years ago and have used them maybe 4-5 times, most recently today. I call them for the aforementioned odd jobs that while small are beyond my skill set. I have never been disappointed and their quotes are bang-on in terms of accuracy. Also, we're happy to see familiar faces return to our home. Contractors have always been pleasant and polite and based on my happy outcomes, I've recommended Odd Job Handyman Services to friends and family members.

Great, fast service and repair

I contacted Odd Jobs based on a recommendation through a friend. It was a sunken sink issue. I was provided with a detailed quote just based on giving a description and pictures, and the actual invoice came in LOWER than the initial quote, which shows that this company his honest!!! The customer service from start to finish was wonderful, and they were especially great liaising with my tenant while I live overseas. Thank you to Odd Jobs, my tenant said the service was great, friendly, and the guys cleaned up after themselves too. Will definitely use them again in the future!

Quick fix on basement apartment door

Odd Job have been our go-to contractor for quick fixes to our basement rental. Our tenant's bathroom door needed to be replaced with a custom-sized door. As is always the case with rentals, we needed a fast turnaround.

We phoned the folks at Odd Job, Justin came to take a look soon after. A few days after that, the custom door was sized, cut, painted and installed. Door looks great and our tenant is happy.

Service is excellent and appreciate the efficient and detailed estimates and invoices (great for landlords). Highly recommend.

Grinding down door

I used odd job to help me with a sticky door. The two handymen arrived promptly and were really friendly and professional. They did a great job and didn’t leave until door closed perfectly. Would use them
again.

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."
