“Staying put,” is likely the wish of many of our parents. To grant that wish, some adjustments may have to be made to their homes. Anything from a higher toilet to an entrance ramp – improvements that can easily be handled by a “handyman.” Perhaps your handyman days are over, or you simply live too far away to tackle these types of jobs. Not to worry, resources exist.

Mr. Handy Man is one of several nationwide companies that provides a wide range of major and minor home repairs. Their slogan is “on time, done right” and this is the standard their franchisees must aspire to.

We like that all technicians are licensed, bonded and insured – they are employees, not subcontractors and are held to the company standards. We also appreciate their interest in suggesting improvements to maximize energy efficiencies. In addition, they can come prepared with the supplies needed or give you the option to purchase the supplies yourself. If you are organizing a project from afar, this option certainly makes life easier.
