Region – Every homeowner has a big to-do list—projects large and small that we don’t have the time, expertise, or desire to do ourselves. So we call in an expert, but depending on our list, that can mean many different experts—a carpenter, a window person, an installation expert, a drywall pro. That time we think we’re saving? Now we’re spending it on research, waiting for return phone calls, and blocking off days at a time.
There is a better way. Call Mr. Handyman of Central and MetroWest Mass for all your major and minor home repairs.
Mr. Handyman specializes in home maintenance projects that both build up over time or need immediate attention, including repair, assembly, carpentry, drywall, installation, and interior and exterior maintenance.
Michael Campbell bought his franchise in 2005. He has a fleet of eight vans, two pickup trucks, and two trailers, all emblazoned with the cheery and familiar red Mr. Handyman logo, and eleven dedicated and professional employees.
They’re CAPS (Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist) certified, so they can work on home modification projects for both seniors who want to stay in their own houses and homeowners who want to make modifications for family members and visitors. From installing ramps and walk-in showers to adding task lighting and grab bars, Mr. Handyman can make any home accessible and barrier-free while preserving the original charm and architecture.
New parents fixate on childproofing their homes. This is one of Mr. Handyman’s most popular requests—they’ll anchor furniture, add safety latches and window guards, cut blind cords, and install gates.
Every room has a to-do list. Take the kitchen. Mr. Handyman will install windows and treatments, install and repair cabinetry and tile flooring, add molding and trim, install a backsplash, swap out or add a door, childproof the stove, and repair drywall and plaster.
Campbell’s team also works in attics, basements, and on the home’s exterior. From bulkheads and foundation work to awnings, mailboxes, and decks, Mr. Handyman can service every part of a home. They also handle seasonal maintenance—think projects like roof raking, ice dam removal, weather stripping and insulation, and holiday decorations.
The most popular requests include gutter repair and cleaning, dryer vent cleaning and replacement, power washing, closet organizer installation, smoke and CO detectors, and replacing rotted exterior wood.
Mr. Handyman has received the Angie’s List Super Service Award the last three years and is on track for a fourth in 2019, and they have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. Their employees show up on time in clearly marked vehicles, and they treat your home like they would treat their own. They’re professional, neat, licensed, and insured.
Mr. Handyman is also a great place to work.
“We offer full benefits, including uniforms, health insurance, and an IRA with a match,” Campbell said. “We are a great, family-oriented local business.”
