How do you determine if you need a New Orleans handyman? First you might have a number of jobs that are too small or even too diverse for a contractor that specializes in only one area of home improvement. Then you need to determine whether the projects you have in mind are within your own scope of abilities. This means not only your skills level or physical ability but the time you have to dedicate to completing a job. If you’re working all week are you going to have the time to tackle those remodeling or repair projects yourself? Remember that no one in your family will be happy walking around all week while you try to find the time to put the kitchen faucet back together! If you don’t have time to do the small and essential jobs by yourself, better hire a professional New Orleans handyman.

"Ed was very professional. Went above and beyond! Have been using him on various projects ever since. Call on him often "
Joanna, St. Francisville
"So let me start by saying that in a set construction class, the instructor took away the drill I was using and handed me a broom. That being said, I am on the look out for an honest, do all kinds of random repair jobs around your house kind of person that won't charge crazy prices or take longer than necessary. Ed was upfront and no nonsense. He re-attached a vinyl decorative shutter that fell off the outside of my house, reinforced the other shutters and put up a blind that fell off a door. Came out the same day I called (although a little later than expected - but I gave him the benefit of the doubt since I just wanted to get it done and I knew he was squeezing me into the day). He charged a little more than I expected, but I think his work will last. Will likely call him again if I need more random repairs or another blind falls down. He will also travel to the New Orleans Metro Area - don't let the Prairieville address fool you."

"Great job. Always professional and does a great job. Would call him again. "
