Tex is the best! Highly recommend., 12/01/2014

Tex came to my newly bought house and I had a lot of electrical and plumbing that needed to be done. Not only was he able to fix both, but knowing when my move in date was, he worked extra hours and... over the weekend to make sure that I was able to have everything working before I moved in to the house. He is such a nice person to work with and he is able to fix so much (even a few items that were not related to electrical or plumbing but that were such a great help at the house!) Also, he has a guarantee on his parts and work but knowing the quality of his work, I don't anticipate having any problems. Several of my neighbors already have used him to fix a few items around his house. I highly recommend him! He is very friendly and reliable.

Responsive and Careful, 9/30/2014

Tex cam out on short notice to take care of a couple of items. He was prompt, competent, and professional, all for a reasonable price.

A Scammer

When I contacted this handyman to discuss my painting needs, he told me that he charged $55 per hour. When he showed up at my house he then informed me that he charges $55 per hour per person and he just happened to bring an additional person which he said was his policy to always bring two people to every job. After showing up, he also told me that he does not give estimates. I asked why didnt he inform me of this policy of bringing two people to every job, he just looked at me. I was stunned! I told him that I did not want him to do the job, but I still had to pay him for coming out! I felt that this was a scam becuase this information should have been provided to me before he came to my house.

This person is not a person that I went to do business with on 9-26-07.

Good Job

Showed up on time. Took a couple trips but mainly got the job done. Next time I will not hire a hourly rate company, but Tex did what he could do to stay where he wanted to be. I just wish I could have had it completely finished for what I paid.

DO NOT hire this guy!

Please be sure not to hire Tex Adams. He will promise the world and try to be nice, but you will get reamed in the end. I hired Tex a while back and now that I see others had the same bad experience with him, I wanted to share mine. He does not know enough to estimate a job, so he will milk you while he slowly works. He cannot correctly estimate materials, so you will be stuck paying for stuff you don't need. He does not even clean up after himself. I'm sure he will clean up his mess if you pay him enough to do it. Tex Adams is a prime example of what is wrong with this county... He is out to make as much money as possible without concern for the consumer, while the quality of what you get ends up under what it should be. At least he was on time. That is about all I can give him. Thanks for stealing my money, Tex. Never again!

awesome

Tex is a pro. Not cheap but he and his assistant did an outstanding job. They put a light on the ceiling where there wasn't one before and you'd never know there wasn't one there. HIGHLY recommend!!!

Excellent Job !!

I am very impressed with Tex Adams and the work he and his crew has done for us. He arrived on time and stayed until everything was fixed and working properly. He did high quality work at a very reasonable price. He has repaired locks, installed closet doors, repaired outside facia boards and gutter work. He has repaired ruptured water lines and fixed electrical problems. There has not been anything that Tex could not do, and do very well. He is a very honest man to do with business with, I would highly recommend A Professaionl Handyman for hire.

Overpriced and inefficient

Tex and his 2 assistants ("master technicians")were friendly and on time which is the best I can say for them. They put a small wooden canopy over a door and fixed 2 screens and reworked a screen door latch. They charged over $1500 to do this being paid by the hour ($110/hr, except when Tex was helping the others figure out how to proceed when it was $165/hr). We will not use them again.

Excellent Work

I hired Tex to replace the rotting wood on a dormer in out house and he not only did an excellent job of the replacement he figured out the cause and fixed that so it won't happen again. I thought the job looked good when I looked at if from the lawn but it was even more impressive when I went up to prime. Every seam & nail hole had been caulked to prevent leaks. Excellent job and I'll call Tex whenever I need an handyman.

Quick, quality service

I had an AC problem that I thought was going to require having a hole expanded in my wall. Not only did Tex work me in the day I called but he was able to fix the problem without the additional carpentry work. Great service and attitude.
