My giant dogs destroyed a door, significant piece of trim and ate some of the wall. And I only had a few days before my my mother in law arrived to attend my son's first birthday party we were hosting. Handy Husband saved the day. Even considering an initial snafu with scheduling, I couldn't have been happier with the work. Lou Alvarado, the owner was prompt about contacting me and returning calls. Kit Riley who performed the work was great and worked the job into his schedule. The subcontractor who painted was quick and efficient. I was a little surprised about the amount of the initial estimate, also because it was such an expected expense. But considering the work it took and the time, Kit was spot on with it. And he even came in under his intial number when he was all done. And just a few minutes ago, Kit stopped by, unbidden, to check everything, pull of the plastic left on the glass in the door and scrape off some random drips of paint. I hope I never have to call them again about any doors my dogs gnaw, but I will not hesitate to call them for our next needs around the house. Great work and really nice people.

Lou Alvarado & Handy Husband were highly recommended by family & friends when I bought my "fixer upper" a couple of years ago. They have been the perfect contractor for my needs. To this point, my projects by them, while not any major remodel/rebuild (e.g., addition), have been pretty substantial, anywhere from tiny (e.g., basic electrical, door locks) to medium (e.g., decks, windows) to pretty large (e.g., complete kitchen knockout and rebuild/remodel). Their wide range of services/skills is impressive, which has saved me some money, and they make good recommendations re "outside their scope" projects. They're on-time, they're professional, they communicate well, and they're trustworthy folks whom you're comfortable having in your home.

I have used HandyHusband for over 10 years and have always been very pleased with the quality of work and the timely manner in which it was done. My husband provides us with a beautiful home and it's my job to keep it that way. That's when Handy Husband comes into play. You guys have always done exactly what is needed to keep our home in great repair. Thank you!!

Lou Alvarado and his team (Kit, especially) are as good as it gets for handyman-type household work. They are very professional, very capable, very trustworthy. Five-star service in every way.

Handy Husband has done a great job helping with repairs and getting the job done. We are very comfortable having Kit at our home and would even leave him to finish the repairs without us being at home. A very trustworthy company that always does their best at problem solving. We highly recommend their services.

We used Handy Husband for some work around the house that we couldn't seem to get around to doing. A nice-looking, well-spoken, friendly gentleman named Kit arrived (on time!) and quickly dispatched all the chores in less than two hours. Quality work at a fair price. We would heartily recommend Handy Husband to our neighbors.

I've been a Handy Husband customer for 12 years. Handy Husband is a prompt, reliable, reasonably priced company with a can-do attitude. I've been impressed with their ability to creatively handle out of the ordinary household repairs. I highly recommend their services!

I've used Lou and the Handy Husband for my businesses and home projects for more than 15 years. Missed appointments? Never. Shady rate quotes? Never. Shoddy work? Never. Complete Satisfaction? Every time - and there must have been 50 since we met! Cant say enough about Lou and his crew!

I had these folks come out and install a set of French doors in my dining room. It was a project that I was going to do myself but for three months I just could not find the time. Two gentlemen arrived on time, reviewed everything I needed done, and had it knocked out in about 4 hours. This job would've taken me 4 days (literally) but since they do this stuff for a living they knew exactly how to proceed. The quality is perfect. Both doors hang exactly right all the way around - not easy to do. They were fast, courteous, knowledgeable, and they cleaned everything up afterwards. I would not hesitate to use Handy Husband again!

I have used Handy Husband on numerous occasions and have always been very pleased. They show up on time, do the job well, and even sometimes go above and beyond the call of duty. For instance, they came out of their way to come to my condo to repair something when I got off work at 9:00 that night. They are always courteous, clean and reliable. I would recommend them to anyone.
Handy Husband has been my "Go To" Guy for several years. They show up when expected, get the job done professionally and follow up to make sure I am happy. I have used them for both commercial and residential repairs and can highly recommend them!
