Who We Are
We are a father-and-daughter handyman team committed to quality!
We offer premium services to Baton Rouge
Different than your average handyman
#1 We answer our own phone! We don’t have schedulers or receptionists. When you call (or email!), Randy or Amanda will answer you personally. We start building long-term relationships with our clients by talking with you directly!
#2 We do the work ourselves! When you hire us, you know who will come to your door—Randy and Amanda. We are a father-and-daughter handyman team, who work together at each job site.
#3 We arrive on time! We know that you are busy and that your time is valuable. As homeowners, we’ve experienced the frustration of tradespeople who don’t show up. That’s why we make appointments and we keep them!
