No Surprises, 4/14/2015

Hired Handy Hero to do a couple of minor repairs (ceiling fan, cabinet drawer, toilet). David (the technician) arrived on time, completed the work in a satisfactory manner. Will use again in the... future.

They Made it Right!, 11/13/2014

We had a few problems at first... oh, but they made it right! So glad I picked Handy Hero! The price wasn't high, and I got what I paid for!

Unethical Business Practices

Handy Hero was hired by Eos Real Estate Management Group's Dawson Forest Apartments in Dawsonville, GA to diagnose a problem with our sound system. They sent a proposal for $100 for the assessment. When the subcontracted technicians arrived, they were about 10 minutes into their diagnosis before they realized they could not diagnose the problem without a working receiver. A representative of Dawson Forest purchased a new receiver from Radio Shack (5 minutes away). The technician also requested some speaker wire be purchased in case if was needed. When the representative from Dawson Forest returned 15 mins later, the new receiver was plugged in and sound system started working. The speaker wire was returned. The technicians went to prepare the paperwork in their van (where they sat eating for nearly an hour) and retuned with a work order and invoice for $500. Dawson Forest was told by Handy Hero that prior to any additional work being done outside of the original $100 proposal a new proposal would be sent for signature approval. This never happened. The technicians stated that this always happens with Handy Hero; they left with nothing signed. Handy Hero then proceeded to make unprofessional phone calls, unethical remarks, and vindictive statements to the business and its staff. The technicians worked for only 15 mins assessing the sound system and plugging in the receiver. No additional or modified proposal was sent and signed-off on. It was incredibly unprofessional.

This review is by a person by the name of Tyler Collum, also known as Joseph Tyler Collum who was in the employ of a company who hired our company to do work. When we ran into trouble with Tyler and his failure to pay us for work completed, we looked him up and found out that under his full name, Joseph Tyler, he has a criminal record. We informed his past employer and ever since Tyler has been smearing our company having written at least 12 poor reviews on us anywhere he can. While he is free to do so, you are also free to see the public records on Joseph Tyler and decide for yourself. Please note that EOS and Handy Hero are in good terms with one another and appreciate each other's business: http://www.calcoso.org/warrants/?l=Collum&f=Joseph&m=Tyler

RFalfa

Reviews: 1

Would not recommend.

Hired them for some carpentry and other miscellaneous work on house. Not willing to stand behind their work.

Handy Hero Inc replied on 11-07-2014

I am taking the time to list the facts as I believe the above statement from RFalfa is inaccurate and tainted. The facts are we were hired by this person's father (not the person who wrote this review) in August of 2013 to do exterior repairs including gutter and fascia repairs and to replace weather stripping on two doors that had drafts. Then in October 2014 we received a voicemail from the person who wrote this review basically implying we were hired to "weather proof" the door and we are now responsible for damaged flooring near the door and we were to come out and do all these repairs on warranty. Our company offers a 1 year warranty on labor and we stand by it. But our warranty covers the work that we were hired to perform, not something else. It was explained to this person in detail that if he'd like to hire us to "weather proof" the entry of concern that we would take the necessary actions to do it (replace the builder-grade door for a better quality one), possibly install a portico as the door of concern is directly exposed to the elements with no protection. He chose instead to be upset and write an inaccurate review. We have been in business for 10 years, are family owned and operated, have always stood by our work. We have thousands of customers who can attest to it. We are certainly not perfect, but we are honest. And that includes not allowing ourselves to be taken advantage of.

Very satisfied

Had a 11-year old picture window (approx 2' x 4') with wood frame rotting. The room has 4 such windows, 2 on each side of the fireplace. Each pair is basically side-by-side - there's about 2" of trim separating them. They are set high up on the 2nd story of our family room (20' ceiling). Of 4 contractors, only Handy Hero took the time to use a ladder to climb up and assess the damage. Handy Hero was the only contractor who recommended sending the window out to have its frame rebuilt (7-10 business days) rather then replace both the bad window AND the adjacent window. The repair was done by David and was completed on time. The window looks like new again. The trim looks professionally finished as well. I'll definitely call Handy Hero for future jobs.

Great handyman service!

David of HandymanHero came to my rescue when I needed last minute help with a kitchen remodel project; he did such a great job with the kitchen project, that I called him to come back to my house to assist with other misc. items on my "to do" list. David is hard working, thorough, diligent and patient, as well as being a really nice guy! Highly recommend (and I am picky!).

So glad I found Handy Hero!!

I had a new french door that never closed properly. No one seemed to be able to fix the problem. Then I discovered Handy Hero and their technician, Barry, fixed the situation and I am finally happy with my doors. I also got a quote from them for repairing wallpaper damaged sheetrock, painting the entire downstairs and installing several light fixtures. The sheetrock has been redone by Corey and Judy starts painting today. I am so impressed with their professionalism and expertise!! Thank You Handy Hero!!

Above and beyond!

David converted my two drawer file cabinet into a hinged-door media cabinet. I wanted to hide all my ugly computer componants in my new home office. He was on time, friendly and did an outstanding job. The cabinet looks great. He even re-connected my computer after it was moved and wouldnt leave until he was sure it was working again. I highly recommend Handy Hero and David. Thank you! Donna F.

Look no further! This IS your contractor!

We had lots of trim work that needed some TLC and Judy was an absolute magician! David did some drywall repairs inside a linen closet and on a bedroom ceiling. Both were extremely professional! Our home looks brand new again! Thanks so much - we'll definitely call you for any future projects!!

First time hiring someone to fix things

My husband and I are first time homeowners and growing up (and even until recently) my father has fixed everything for us around the house during his visits, or our landlord would come out and take care of the problem. I was a bit hesitant to call, but knew the repairs we needed done couldn't wait for months and months until my father came for a visit. David did an amazing job. His work was excellent and he was efficient as well. We paid a fair price and I will never feel uncomfortable about calling them to repair anything. David even answered some questions we had about other areas of our house while he was out. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs things fixed, from a fireplace that will not light to a crack in the ceiling (from me tripping and falling in the attic).

I have used Handy Hero for everything from major projects (electrical and plumbing) to hanging pictures. They are on time, fairly priced, and do a great job. I recommend Handy Hero to anyone looking for a job well done.

Very Happy with the service

Selling the house, so I hired them to come in and do some maintenance work. Fix a toilet, change out some lights, plus some other stuff. This is the second time I've had them over. The first job involved replacing some hardi-plank and trim. They did an excellent job with that as well. overall, very pleased. They arrived on time, kept in touch with me beforehand, were very flexible, and did great work. I dinged them one star on value, because credit card surcharges tick me off.

Great Service

David was prompt in coming to hook up the water for my refrigerator, and also to repair water leaks he found in the crawl space. I will most assuredly call again when I need more service.
