Personable, Reliable, Affordable - does not leave a mess - this guy is my first go-to

Ricardo is the best experience I have had with a Handyman / General Contractor. He responds fast, shows up when he says he will, keeps communication open, incredibly dependable, quality work, clean & tidy, and yes, very affordable. I love this guy's whole overall business ethic. He is my first go-to; and, i will refer him to my clients. As a Realtor, having Ricardo work on projects, makes me shine, i like that. Thank you Ricardo for your work and how you treat your clients. you are amazing !!

Silver Lining Handy Work

I would highly recommend Silver Lining Handy Work. Ricardo arrived at my house when he said he would. He not only installed two light fixtures for me, but he also took the time to look at another electrical problem I was having. His rates are reasonable and his work is excellent. I will definitely use Silver Lining Handy Work again in the future.

Deck Replacement & Other Projects

We are absolutely delighted with our new deck and with Silver Lining Handywork! Ricardo approaches every project, whether large or small, as an exceptional professional who models outstanding customer service, skill, adaptability and dedication. There's peace of mind in knowing who to call for any project large or small - and that is the gift we have with Ricardo and Silver Lining Handywork.

Backsplash

Sent a message via HomeStars describing the project and a photo of the kitchen. Ricardo gave a quote which was within the budget for installation of the backsplash. Ricardo did a great job and kept to the quote and time needed!

Would definitely use their services for other jobs if needed in the future.

Post Move

Ricardo is the best handyman so call him if you need anything home related done ! I have been through 3 handymen to date. It seems like "handymen" offer their services on the side but Silver Lining Handywork is a branded company doing this as a profession. I hired him to hang pictures and mirrors, move furniture and discuss electrical work amongst other things. Everything I asked him to do he did properly and efficiently. He was great to work with and I will have him back to do more.

Kitchen Renovation in Pickering

Our Kitchen renovation was left unfinished by another contractor. We had several handymen look at the unfinished work and they would promise to estimate and complete the work over a weekend. But none of them returned.
We lost hope that this work would ever get finished.

Ricardo returned as promised and he gave us an honest estimate and completed the work on time even though there were some challenges and he kept the bill close to the estimate.
He laid floor tiles in the unfinished pantry area and powder room. He picked up the kitchen back splash work from a very sad state and gave it a neat finish.
He came up with suggestions for minor improvements and accommodated all our requests.
He was always on time and he didn't mind running to the store quite a few times.

After all the amazing work, he was not even behind us for the payment which is totally unlike other contractors.

We recommend him and we will go back to him in future.

We are very grateful for his dedication.
Thank you Ricardo for the excellent work !

Multiple small jobs

We had multiple small jobs around the house including installation of a microwave range, replacement of a door, installation of a laundry tub and faucet, and some small carpentry work. Ricardo and Ben were very professional and completed the work efficiently and on schedule. The work that they did was exactly as expected and definitely met our expectations. We'll be recommending them to everyone!

Fixed just about everything in our house!

I am so grateful to Ricardo! He managed to fix about a years worth of home repair issues in under 5 hours. He did everything from plumbing, to electrical, to installing very tricky ceiling fans with no issues. Booking an appointment was very easy through Claudia - she managed to accommodate my schedule and Ricardo was at our home in just a couple of days. Ricardo arrived right on time, ran through the list of projects with me and was quick to get to work. After a few hours at our house, I started to remember other small jobs that he could help with and he fit them in during the same visit. He even went out on his own lunch break to get some parts that were needed for my last minute job requests. Ric was very professional, tidy, conscientious and honest about the scope of the work. I was amazed at how low my invoice was at the end of his work day. I'm already putting together a list of things we need Ric to fix in the Fall and am looking forward to working with Silver Lining Handywork again! FYI - he is capable of much more than just household repairs and we will be using him for larger home renovations in the near future.
