From the original quote (done by David) to the actual paint job (done by Simon) the service was excellent and I couldn't be happier. My condo is just over 600 sqft and there are a lot of nooks and crannies because of the bulkheads and air ducts. There are also 5 hanging/sliding doors that are each 4 ft x 9 ft that I had painted. The paint job took 3 days for 1 person. I had two red accent walls that I wanted painted with a Charcoal Grey that matched the custom kitchen island I had put in last year and Simon took care of making sure the paint matched perfectly. I also had the sliding doors painted Charcoal Grey and all of it looks fantastic. Simon's work is second to none. I couldn't paint the side of a barn without messing it up and it was awesome to watch Simon work and be able to freehand around almost everything without getting paint on anything else. Just amazing.!

This is the second time I've used AFG and again, the service was excellent. Last year it was to replace a faulty circuit board in a very old HVAC unit in my loft. The board had to be sourced from the USA and Fasi was on top of it right from the beginning. This year, the condensate pump failed and the termostat was also acting up. My loft is rented out and after contacting Fasi, he made sure to coordinate with my property manager so that he could get in to diagnose the problem and then install the new parts. Again, the work was really well done. As a long distance landlord I couldn't ask for anything more knowing that I don't have to be there to inspect the work and make sure that everything is done properly. I highly recommend Fasi and his team.

Mike installed the home theatre system in my loft in 2013 (time-lapse here https://vimeo.com/88967861) and it's worked flawlessly ever since. My place has been rented out for the past 5 years and Mike has just done the 2nd lamp replacement on the projector. I've found the key thing with Mike is communication. Meaning he's always quick to respond and gives meaningful feedback. Something I find is sadly missing with most companies today. Being a long distance landlord (I don't live in Toronto anymore), I'm not there to personally supervise the work and Mike could easily have taken advantage of that to charge me extra for things I didn't need. In fact, with the last lamp replacement, there was another issue with the projector and I had actually suggested to Mike about possibly buying a new one and he replied "Let me check something first." and in the end the issue was fixed without buying any new equipment. That's just awesome and I can't recommend Mike highly enough.

My condo has 5 sliding doors that hang from the ceiling. Each one is 4 feet wide by 9 feet tall and they were organized in a group of 3 (for the bedroom) and a group of 2 (for the den). I wanted all 5 doors to be independent (e.g. - slide the length of the condo). Because the nature of the job was more industrial (it required new hardward to be ordered and installed and drilled into the concrete ceiling) Handyman Connection were able to put me in contact with a contractor who had almost 2 decades of experience in that kind of work. Dave (the contractor) and his team were fantastic. Incredibly professional and great to work with. I couldn't be happier with the results and I can now have all 5 doors grouped together in the one spot and it really opens up the space in my condo. Awesome job.

I was impressed with the company from my first phone call to them. They took the time to properly listen to the issue I wanted investigated and setup a time just a few days later for the inspection to be done. Mike was excellent. He showed up on time and was really thorough in diagnosing what was wrong and also took the time to explain to me what he was doing at every step. I was really impressed with the work that he did and I have no problem recommending them for any work you need done.

Right from when I first spoke to Paul (the owner) on the phone I received impeccable service. He took me through the different pricing levels for the work that I could have done and helped me pick out the right package. Chris & Bryan showed up exactly as scheduled and were really understanding that I was 10 mins late! They were both excellent. But what totally blew me away is that they did a full inspection before starting any work and then, after finding that the ducts and my HVAC unit weren't actually all that dirty, confirmed with Paul that the work I ordered wasn't really necessary. So without me asking, they did only what was required and charged me far less than the original quote. I honestly can't remember the last time I dealt with a company that came in an adjusted the quote based on less work needing to be done. I was incredibly impressed by this and definitely recommend The Duct Cleaning Specialists for any work you are thinking of having done. Thanks guys!
