I continue to be impressed with Lou and his team at Handy Husband. They promptly responded to my call to look at a leaky window that I couldn't seem to fix (despite the large hole I had made in my... wall.) Greg came out, diagnosed the problem and made the repair. Rather than just fix it, close up the wall and leave, he offered to come back in a couple of days to make sure the leak had truly been repaired. He did come back, verified the fix and patched up the wall and trim. I very much appreciated the extra effort to ensure the job was done right. Will definitely do business with Handy Husband again!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Lou and his HH guys are the BEST. It's bad enough having a problem that's difficult but finding someone to fix it is worse. "Handy Husband" has done several jobs for me and they guys are POLITE and... NEAT and Professional. Each time they were able to do my job without charging me an arm and a leg. My friend has even had these guys do some painting for her, in fact - after I write this review I'm going to thank her for telling me about Lou and his guys. :)VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

Lou and Jerry handled everything we requested. They worked with our busy schedule and got it all done in a timely manner. We will use them again.
Lou knew exactly what to do. My tenant’s door was broken and she needed the door repaired quickly. Lou came out the next day and assessed the damages and knew just how to repair the door. He also gave me some good advice on future replacement of the door. He gave a great price. It was nice not to be pressured to repair or replace unneeded items. Plus my tenant felt great about their service. Thank you! Yvonne S.
I contacted HH via their website yesterday after reading the glowing reviews on Kudzu. Lou called me last night. I asked him for a quote to reinforce our basement double doors. I enjoyed chatting with him and was immediately impressed with his friendliness and customer service, as well as the fairness of the price quote. This morning he called to say that the repairman would be at my house at noon. Kit showed up right on time. He not only did an excellent job completing exactly the work we requested, but he went above and beyond. He replaced short screws in the door hinges with 3" ones to make the doors more secure, something I never would have known about. As he worked, he explained everything he was doing and gave me hints about future repairs I could do for myself. We were so impressed with Kit and this company that we will actually look for more projects around our house just so we can have them come out again! Now that is the best recommendation I could ever give!
Jerry did an awesome job!! He was on time, was very courteous, efficient and my Mom was very pleased. We plan on having him do more work for us in the future. It's nice to know there are still "good guys" out there that you can rely on.
Lou was very responsive and clearly cares about providing good service, no matter how big or small the job. Adam was our tech and he called while on his way and showed up right on time and finished right on time. He was very professional and didn't leave a mess at all. They were flexible with scheduling which is greatly appreciated. I found their rates to be fair. Glad I found them here!
The Handy Husband crew did an great job on a variety of home improvement projects at our home. It was a pleasure working with Cheryl. She was not only professional, but often went far beyond the ‘normal’ job description to offer her opinion and suggestions when needed. We truly appreciated her help and direction on our home improvement projects. Cheryl always listened to our questions/concerns and offered up suggestions and answers to us. She and Dave did an outstanding job in completing our projects and we felt completely comfortable working with them. We truly appreciate all the hard work Cheryl and Dave devoted to helping us improve our home.
Handy Husband has gained a customer for life. I called and they arrived same day within just a few hours, they repaired my faucet in a matter of minutes and could have totally upcharged me since a lot of companies have minimum fees and charge you for just coming out to do a job. Not Handy Husband. They gave me a reasonable price and were extremely professional and didn't take advantage of me. With our house up for sale I have worked with a lot of different handymen, contractors, etc. and I have never been more impressed than I was with Handy Husband. I will refer them to all my friends and will continue to use them forever!
I had an expensive storm door installed a little over a year ago. The contractor who installed the door for me never did get the door installed correctly. The lock and latch never did work, even after the contractor came back twice to repair. Handy Husband came out and within ONE HOUR had the lock and latch working properly. The gentleman Handy Husband sent out (Kit) was right on time and knew what he was doing. I am very pleased that I found Handy Husband to do jobs around the house.
Lou Alvarado runs his business The Handy Husband, like a professional. He was prompt to schedule a service man to come and work up an estimate and delivered the estimate via e-mail within a couple days. We were able to schedule the work fairly quickly after that. The estimate was a little higher than we would have liked of course, but as I had used HH in the past, I was confident the higher price would be balanced out by quality workmanship. One of the repairs we requested was not completed as we expected and I dropped Lou an e-mail a couple days later to let him know we were not happy with the finished product. Lou was quick to react and scheduled a different service man to come and repair the fence again. After that second visit, we could not have been happier - the fence was repaired exactly as we'd hoped it would be. You will probably not get the cheapest price from Handy Husband, but you will get professionalism and quality. I was very impressed - many times after a contractor receives payment, there is not much follow up to ensure customer satisfaction. But Lou and the Handy Husband went above and beyond what I expected in. That sort of work ethic is hard to find these days.
garbage disposal motor broke, he recomended me to buy one on own, to save time/money for labor...so i did, and it was fixed next day! very nice people to work with. thanks!
My Hot Water Heater was falling through it's support case. I called three companies on a Saturday at noon. Handy Husband called me back in ten minutes. They sent Joe out an hour and a half later. He came in assessed the situation and had my hot water heater safely mounted by 3. He was nice, considerate and very personable. The support was fixed, the wall sheetrocked and the location cleaned. The fee for all of this wonderful service was unbelievable affordable. Really. I acturally asked if he was sure about the total. I would HIGHLY recommed Handy Husband to everyone. I will never call another provider. Handy Husband is my handy man from now on. By the way, it is 6 pm and I STILL have not heard from the other two companies.
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.
