We went through quite a few handyman company's over the past 17-years while living in the Sarasota area. Unfortunately finding one that is honest, on time, does the job they quote and having the finished product look as it should has proved ridiculously difficult to find. Then we recently found "The Handy Brit" and we would NOT THINK of using anyone else after hiring Paul several times over the last couple months to do various jobs.During our initial meeting we were so very impressed with Paul's professional demeanor, appearance and explanation of services that we were sure his quote for services was going to be high. Surprisingly his quote was lower than what we had expected and the finished product was better than we could have ever imagined, especially for the price!!A few of things you can "Guarantee" with The Handy Brit are; honesty, being on-time, professional demeanor from start to finish, extremely reasonable quotes, excellent communication, complete transparency relating to costs, job being completed in a timely manner and the end result being nothing less than professional!We don't write many reviews, but we could NOT let the exceptional work and prices that The Handy Brit delivers go unnoticed, that would be nothing less than unprofessional on our part!

BEWARE of “ANDY ONCALL” ! This company appears to be just a dispatch company for anyone available to attempt to do handyman work, but they represent themselves as a handyman repair service. Again BEWARE!Entirely based on an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau, we contracted Andy OnCall to do several items in our home . Our first alert was on day one . The security gate called my wife to allow Andy OnCall thru the gates to do work and the security company said that Honey Do was here can they allow themin ? Honey Do ? Who is that? Well when Joe, the apparent supervisor whom was always our contact person at Andy OnCall was called and quizzed he stated “Andy and I are partners .” We later find out that Andy is no such person but a franchise name available to anyone who pays the price to use it.That being said we initially believed Joe, that he was Andy’s partner and my wife allowed the work to begin. 3 bathrooms to re re-grouted caulked and sealed , attic storage flooring to be nailed down, glass backsplash tiles to be installed and grouted in the kitchen plus a bathroom cabinet repaired and some curtain rods hung. My wife upon observing the first guest bathroom being caulked ,not re-grouted , that the caulk was several shades darker and looked horrible. Joe says oh, no problem ,we will be here tomorrow morning with the correct color and all will be good .Oh, by the way he tells her, the attic will need more wood and that will cost you another $130. Surprise! My wife calls me , very upset about what has already happened , I tell her just go ahead with the attic ,they are already there. They finish the kitchen tile , grout it and my wife tells Joe that several areas are missing grout in the kitchen. Oh no problem proclaims Joe. We will get that tomorrow morning when we correct the caulking in the guest bathroom. By the way we’ll be there bright and early boasts Joe ,8 am that is.……Well Joe and crew roll in at around 9:30 the next morning, they try the new matching caulk ,it doesn’t match either , they nail down the $130 worth of wood we now needed and Joe says oh well ,we can’t match the caulk and by the way you’ll have to call a cabinet company to get the cabinet fixed .Another panic call form my wife, I said just pay them and get them out of the house before they damage more items. She calls right back and tells me ,too late , they have already started re-grouting the master bath and it too looks much darker. Again Joe assures , no problem , when it dries all will be good . They finish , then all agree not to touch the other guest bath and Joe graciously reduces our bill by $75, yes $75 for not doing the third bath or matching the second bathroom.. Another panic call from my wife . Again I tell her just pay them and get them out .She does .Next morning the master bath grout , one dry, is still multi -colored and not the same color as declared by Joe , when it dries it will match. The new kitchen tile is still missing grout and now we notice several areas are bulging out. Here we go again. An immediate call to Joe and once again , we are assured by Joe that he will call back ,get it fixed right away and all will be good .That was almost two weeks ago No Joe ,no call , just a mess that will cost thousands to be repaired . Avoid the nightmare avoid ANDY ONCALL…………..
Great Service, Super clean and neat!
I had hired someone else to do pressure washing and painting around my house. They showed up every other day. I got rid of them then called Brian. Brian is a true professional amazing work and communicates well and does what he says he's going to do. I love his work he takes it very seriously.
