JW provides excellent handyman services. The man who came to our home went from item to item and completed them in a very professional manner. We were very pleased with his work. I would highly recommend this company. In fact, we are hiring them again.
We had many windowsills and bars repainted. They scraped and primed every area first, then painted everything perfectly. The bars almost look like they were just installed. Once again we are extremely pleased with JW Home Improvement. This is our sixth time using them, and each job has been great. The staff is very friendly and professional—A+.
This is the second time we have had JW Home Improvement come to our house, and both times were excellent. We will definitely call them again—A+.
They did a wonderful job re-grouting my tub tile and putting in new bathroom fixtures. When they left everything was totally cleaned up. The crew was polite and I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a handyman group.
Cesar was on time and didn't seem to slow down once during the entire 8+ hours of work. We are very happy with what he was able to complete for us. He gave us advice about future projects. We will definitely request him the next time we call JW Home Improvement.
They're great. They help plan out the work that needs to be done, help plan the budget (because let's be real, usually the list is longer than the budget allows), and stay well within it. And they stand by their work 100 percent.
To start off I would like to state that the 'salesman' Sam was fantastic. He was extremely colorful on the phone and very helpful. He became a friend over the phone without ever meeting the guy. The estimator was very experience as well and took his time. Although, he was a bit weird because he kept going into different rooms to look for more work, but he did find more work and it saved us money. The office scheduler named Kelly did a fine job. He was able to get us scheduled in and he was very thorough with our estimate and information. He was detailed and precise and got us the best two-man crew available for a Saturday. The technicians, David and William were impressive and skillful. I would use JW over and over again and again.
They came in advance and provided an accurate time estimate and let me know what I could do to minimize costs. On the appointed day and time, the handyman arrived and worked steadily and expeditiously. He did exactly what I had asked him to do without missteps or mistakes. He was careful and cleaned up behind himself. He was also very personable and polite. I would use JW Home Improvement again.
Justin is amazing. He's clean, professional, and his work is top notch. We won't work with anyone else.
The customer service was phenomenal. They resolved all my concerns and did everything very professionally. Best Service ever.
