Bathroom Remodel
This is a letter of recommendation for Dana Sarozek of Handy Home Services. Dana was the general contractor for a remodeling project of a bathroom to make it wheelchair accessible in my father's house. Although I am not the homeowner, Dana's services as a general contractor were invaluable, and I am extremely overjoyed with the final result. The bathroom is gorgeous as well as functional. Specifically, I would give Dana and his crew top marks in the following areas: 1. Quality of work performed. The quality of the work done was exceptional. Dana who performed most of the construction and his co-workers were knowledgeable, skilled and competent in their respective trade. They were conscientious about following project specifications and their work product rarely needed improvement or revision. 2. Quality of work crews. Dana was professional, reliable, courteous and respectful of the homeowner's property and privacy. Dana and his crew exhibited good work habits, strong safety orientation and emphasized getting the job done right rather than doing it fast. Their pride in their work is evident. They tidied up at the end of each workday. My father felt comfortable with allowing them access inside his home. 3. Project management and coordination. Dana's prior experience working in construction was evident. He was knowledgeable about all aspects of our project and was able to plan, coordinate and manage the activities of different work crews effectively. His attention to detail, strong organizational skills and commitment to follow-through are assets that enable him to keep the project running smoothly. Dana's familiarity with building codes and dealing with the city hall also facilitated a smooth and hassle-free process when it came to building permits and inspection. 4. Integrity and professionalism. Throughout the project, I was impressed with Dana's commitment to generating a top quality product. When situations arose, where extra work needed to be done (because of hidden problems major or minor) Dana involved my father or myself in order to make an informed decision on how to proceed. 5. Effective communication. Dana kept my father and I closely informed of every aspect of the project, including work crew schedules, inspection times and projected completion dates of different phases of our project. His communication was always clear, informative and helpful. He made himself available on his cell phone, but there never was a reason to call. His communication with the work crew was just as effective. 6. Responsiveness to homeowner's needs and concerns. Dana's commitment to the homeowner's satisfaction was evident in his actions. There was an urgency to have the bathroom redone and through his perseverance the job was performed in a timely manner without losing quality. 7. Truth in advertising. Handy Home Services was chosen by responding to give an estimate and stating they were willing to perform the job. Once the project was agreed upon, Dana gave a clear breakdown of cost for each facet of the project. His contract was just as detailed in describing the work to be done and the itemized costs. When the project was completed. all the work was done as described. I am in love with the final product which Dana was instrumental in delivering and I am extremely impressed with his work as a general contractor. Dana was exceptional in every facet of the process from beginning to the end. I would not hesitate to hire Dana again, or to recommend him to my friends and neighbors. I recommend Handy Home Services to you most enthusiastically and with out reservations.

I recommend Handy Home Services to anyone!
We called Dana at Handy Home Services the first time to do our yard. He worked with us asking many questions and giving us many suggestions as we walked through measuring our yard. He brought out specific scenarios on why we should or shouldn't do something and explained things very thoroughly. Him and his son work very hard and are very detailed, really thinking through the process and seeing what is coming ahead. In the end, we had a beautiful lawn, our shed was moved and leveled after being placed on a nice bed of rock, and we had four large garden beds with drip system coming to them. He showed us how to use the sprinkler system and came back to make sure everything was working properly. He was available with any questions that we had. The next time we called Dana, we needed to finish the work we had started on our kitchen and to do some other wall work, some electrical, and touch ups to help us prepare to sell our home. His ideas on how to do it economically, but beautifully worked out amazing!! He really made the whole home come together and fixed problems that were discovered in the process that others had not done correctly. He was very thorough making sure that the new island area was going to be just right. The finished product was so amazing!! It really made the home complete. If I could describe Handy Home Services in a just a few words, they would be excellence, enthusiasm, and thoughtfulness. Dana really cares about his customers and the work that he does.

These guys were great!!!
I had these guys do an inspection of my home and they were extremely thorough. Dana is extremely knowledgable, very friendly, and has an amazing eye for detail. Once I bought the house I had them come back to do some of the work that needed to be done, patching walls, putting in some new storage and other minor fixes. When they were done I my house looked brand new and for a very reasonable price. I would recommend these guys to anyone who asked. Have them come out and you will not be disappointed.

Our Go To Contractor!
I have had Handy Home Services work on a variety of projects from large to small. The owner Dana is very knowledgable. In the rare occasion that he does not have the answer Dana will seek out the appropriate professional and get the correct answer. While it may always cost a little more in the long run Handy Home Services has a commitment to not cutting corners and ensuring quality in their work. You never have to worry about shortcuts no matter how tight the budget is. I have seen many home inspections. Dana's home inspections are extremely thorough and detailed. He catches things during the inspection that other home inspectors and pest inspectors miss. You can be confident that Dana's inspections will give you a good understanding of what to expect in the purchase of your new home. I would highly recommend Dana and Handy Home Services!

A job well done
Several years ago hired another contractor, and we had a room addition & added a window in a location there wasn't one. This window constantly leaked and was a source of major frustration. We called Dana to come out and see why we were having the problems with the window leaking. The did his investigation and determined that the wrong window was used, and the contractor didnt install it with the proper waterproofing. Dana quickly provided me an estimate, and upon approval we scheduled the work to replace the window and waterproof the area. Dana's crew arrived right on time and promtly began removing the old window and prepping for the new. We had bad weather coming so the crew was quick to get the new windo in and avoid a disaster. I will surely use Dana, and Handy Home Services for all my future home repairs and upgrades. We are thanksful for the great work he di. The Youngborg's

Absolutely no complaints!
I've had word done by Handy Home Services several times - from roof repair to drywall and door fixes, and several things in between - and not only do they do a great job, but they've also gone above and beyond to make sure that I was happy with the results and the costs. I recommend them to all of my friends that need home repairs.
