Very Pleased, Excellent Service and Fair Price!

We hired Mark to help us change a light fixture as well as other various small jobs around the house, in order to get our home ready for sale. We were originally worried that it would have been too small of a job for him to come out, but Mark was more than willing to come by. We are so glad to have found him. His prices are fair and he works diligently to get the job done. Thank you again Mark!

Complete paint job of two rooms repaired and painted kitchen ceiling.

We found Mark to be very professional, extremely reliable and knowledgeable in all aspects of the work that was to be done . He also gave us some good information on how he would repair our kitchen ceiling which had some water damage . Since he had to wait for certain stages on the kitchen ceiling to dry . We asked if he could completely paint two rooms for us including ceilings, walls, trim and repair some minor cracks on the walls and also remove a shelf over the fireplace He did everything in just three days ! The work was done to perfection and looks amazing .if you want a job well done don’t hesitate call Mark of Dr Handyman . Thank you Mark .

New closet doors and other jobs

Mark purchased and installed new bifold doors for my bedroom closets. The house is old with very crooked door frames and yet he did an amazing job. Did some lighting work for me and more. All told he did a remarkable job and cleaned up afterwards and took away the garbage!
Would definitely use Dr Handyman (Mark) in future.
Thanks Mark.

Great work!

I've invited Mark to install double curtain rods above French doors and to hang up several wall pictures. He did amazing job in the estimated time for a reasonable price. Not only that he completed everything we agreed on, he also fixed a cabinet lock that I showed him as one of the things I would need to be fixed for next time. This was one extra thing that pleasantly surprised me. I still have few other things of different nature to be done around the house and I've already invited Mark to give me the estimate for this next job. I am recommending Mark with complete assurance that he will do a great job.

Multiple Home Projects

Over the years Mark has been our go-to handyman professional for various home projects (drywall work, painting, fixing leaky toilets and faucets). More recently, he helped with many jobs around the house in preparation for moving. He replaced rotten boards on a second storey dormer window box and painted them; he painted the front door and frame and back garden doors; and he painted the cement window sills and trim around the exterior to give the house a fresh look.

We called him back to complete a few items that came up in the home inspection which included installing new insulation in the unfinished basement (where it was missing) and repairing 2 garage door openers that were not working. What impresses us most about Mark is his vast knowledge and expertise about home maintenance & repairs and his willingness to take on even the smallest of jobs with a positive attitude. My husband and I highly recommend the services of Dr. Handyman (Mark). He is a dedicated and hardworking professional who takes pride in his work. We already have Mark scheduled for work in our new home. See you next week Mark!

Excellent work

We hired Mark to assist with about 10 small jobs around the house in preparation for moving. The work was excellent quality and very fair priced.

I wouldn't hesitate to call Mark again in the future.

On time, and amazing work for dry wall & subfloor repairs.

Sine the time I called Mark to discuss the work done, until the work was finished, the work was awesome. Mark is very quick at reverting back to the initial call, the estimate was fair and reasonable, and the work was done on time, and flawless.

Mark even went a step ahead to find a solution to the issue I was facing, which was more cheaper, yet more durable.

I would highly recommend Mark to family and friends and look forward to engaging him again this summer for some other work that needs to be done in my hours.

Dining room paint job

We hired Mark to paint our dining room which has 18' ceiling heights and lots of ornamental trim. He completed the work in a single day, worked cleanly and produced a beautiful paint job. We were very pleased with his work and would definitely hire Mark again.

Front porch enclosure removal

Mark was fantastic. He removed the porch enclosure, and did an amazing job. He arrived on time and was efficient. He went above and beyond. I will recommend Mark to anyone.
