I hired Don to help me start tackling some repairs that felt overwhelming to me. So far, he's done two major jobs for me - replacing an area of rotten subfloor in an upstairs bathroom, and replacing/rebuilding the area around my front door, which was slowly rotting away due to poor construction in 1996 when my house was built. Don was extremely thorough. He gave very detailed quotes and let me know if anything needed to change as he got farther into a job (there were lots of surprises waiting for him, unbeknownst to either of us!). His work is impeccable, and I'm completely satisfied with everything he did. The front of my house looks better than it ever has! Don's son Duncan worked with him for the duration of the job, and he, too, was knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. Don does high quality work at a very reasonable price. I'm getting ready to hire him again for some drywall and ceiling repair in my front room and it feels good to have someone I can call who I'm confident will do a great job.

I contacted HRSi and within less than 24 hours I received a response. Don was courteous and knowledgeable, and even though he did not take the job (due to an excessive travel distance which would have pushed up the cost and which he was very upfront in explaining), he shared many insights and gave great advice. I am not able to comment on HRSi's work, but I was so impressed by the customer service presented by Don that I felt that it was important to post a review.

Don and his son completed a complex job replacing a rotten column archway and repairing our roof damage. They were very thorough and when they were done, the roof was no longer leaking and the archway looked as good as new. I appreciated their attention to detail and the cost effective ideas to build a sturdy support for the column archway. I would not hesitate to recommend HRSI for handyman services.

I have known of Hodges Residential for some six years now, but only recently contracted with him for work after being ripped off by another contractor. Mr. Hodges went above and beyond to repair and complete the work left undone by the previous contractor. He is professional and an expert in his craft. As a single woman, I feel that we are looked at as easy "prey" by some contractors. Don Hodges is definitely someone you can trust to not take advantage of you, while doing his work to perfection.

I recently had Mr. Hodges do some repair work on the front bay window and portico area of my front door. I met with him and he assessed the damage and sent a very detailed written estimate in fairly short order. I had gotten another estimate but it wasn't as detailed and the other company was basically unresponsive. Anyway, I was told the work would take three days to complete which ended up being spot on. During the process of the work, I was consulted multiple times on the direction of repair for some minor details which was much appreciated. It was obvious fairly quickly that Mr. Hodges takes pride in his workmanship and wanted to ensure that the work was done the right way, unlike the original construction of the house. During the process of the work, Don took the time to do a few extra bits of fixing and painting as well as pressure washing my garage doors. Those are the types of things that, along with the meticulousness of the work, made the whole process top notch. I would add that Don's son was a great addition to the work process as well. If you are in the market for any type of home repair, certainly add HRSi as one of your final options.

Don Hodges and helper (his son) did a fantastic job taking care of miscellaneous repairs around the house required by a house inspector (we are selling the house). The most time consuming and very hot work was patching the cracks in the driveway -- which Don did willingly and carefully to get a good result. In discussion on how to respond to various work the inspector requested, Don was extremely honest. He wanted to get the problem identified fixed, fixed well and permanently. And I thought his prices were quite fair. I understand why Don's reviews are so strong on Kudzu. I recommend him highly.

Don did an excellent job to redo some stippling in my kitchen. The craftwork is top notch. He took his time and explained everything out to us. Additionally, he also put up some siding on the side of the house. The siding is intact and looks perfect. He is very professional and work is very good.

I highly recommend HRSI! Don Hodges is extremely professional and a wealth of knowledge. He repainted our kitchen. It was red and now a beautiful green. He was concise and a true perfectionist and even fixed some of the imperfections in the wall. In addition we replaced our shelving in the bonus room closet and added a shoe rack. Impressive work!

I used Hodges for a plumbing issue. The job turned out to be worse than I realized but he was patient with my frustration and even came back the next day to finish without charging me. Great service and I haven't had a problem since.

Don did some nice work at at very good value in repairing plumbing under a sink, cabinet floorboard and shower faucet for my home. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. He was upfront, realistic and has a lot of experience. There were no surprises and he showed me the details of what was involved in completing the work in a professional workmanship fashion.

I used Hodges Residential Service to repair several areas in my home. I was happy to work with Don. He is a mature professional and the quality of his work is very good. Positive that is not commonly found among other contractors is that his recommendations are based on how his service could benefit the home owner and not just to make money. His thorough personality makes task progress smoothly without hiccups. He is a decent individual and most importantly you can expect quality work. The only con I can think of is that he could work a little faster but not a big deal considering the way he works. I would call Don again for the next project.

Don is not the typical handyman. He goes out of his way to be honest and upfront about how much things cost and he does the best to try to save you money when he can. He showed up on time and completed all the things on my list. In fact, I'm now working on a new list so he can come back again. Old houses equal forever handyman and I have found the best one! Finally!

Don was awesome Handyman and he was giving clear instruction ahead of time so the time is utilized well. He gave me all the options with advantage and disadvantages and it helps a lot to make a decision. He is meticulous in his work and did fabulous job.

Don installed 10 blinds in my new home. First, I appreciated his follow through and for showing up to my house on time. In addition, I appreciated the quality of his work and the professional advice he gave me. In addition, he provided me with some other information not related to the job I asked him to perform. I've had such a hard time finding a reliable handyman. I'm definitely keeping his number because I have other jobs I need for him to perform. I highly recommend him for your next job.
