2017 is here!

I just finished the year-end paperwork for 2016, and it absolutely amazes me when I look back at how many jobs I do for people throughout the year. There have been some pretty fun ones. Hot ones. And hard ones. But I’m so glad to have the opportunity to do each one, no matter how small it is. 2016 came and went so fast, and now I can’t believe it’s nearing the end of February of 2017 already! There are many jobs in store for the next few months that I’m looking forward to doing. Which makes me glad I don’t have any advertising other than the Better Business Bureau, because I would have to turn work away! It makes me happy to know my customers think so highly of my work and reasonable prices that they tell other people about me time and time again. So my thanks to all of you for helping my business succeed each year.

The one thing changing this year is the trip charge. It’s been the same for the last three years, but I am at a point that I need to raise it to keep up with ever increasing costs on my end to do business. Starting April 1, 2017, the new trip charge will be $12. It’s only a one time charge per service call (as in if I’m at your house 3 days in a row, there’s only one trip charge, not a per-day charge). The one thing that won’t change is quality. That will always stay the same.

As always, we are Reasonable. Responsible. Reliable.

Bringing a fence back to life

This is a fence project I recently completed for some customers in NW Wichita.  This fence was 156 linear feet! It was long.  It took about 4 hours to pressure wash all the old weathered look and make it shine again.  Some of the neighbor’s fence had already been stained a couple of years ago […]

New Fee starting April 1

Unfortunately, thanks to the rapidly rising costs of gas, business liability insurance & pulling the tool trailer to every job, my usually low rates have to change. I’ve decided not to raise the hourly rate, but beginning April 1st, 2014, there will be a $8 fee added to a service call bill to help offset the costs.  […]

Kitchen cabinet roll out shelves

These are some roll out shelves we installed for a customer in Wichita this week.  They are polypropylene plastic reinforced with fiberglass and steel. They are 3 inches high and can hold 60-100 pounds of weight.  While they run $50-$60 per drawer plus installation and some minor cabinet modification, these are by far the best […]

Refurbished deck

This was a fun project.  Several summers ago when the homeowners first moved in to their house, they budgeted to do a few repairs each summer to their deck and landscaping. We sanded down the boards, replaced 4 rotten ones, and then gave everything a nice coat of Sherwin Williams Deckscapes paint/stain combo. It’s tintable so they were […]

We’ve already been working on some projects for customers to get everything winterized.  One of the biggest losses of heat during the winter is the front door. Through the constant use of the front door things […]

Are you Carbon Monoxide Safe?

Many states around the country are enacting laws for the protection against carbon monoxide.  Kansas is not one of those states. But they should be!  Here’s why: 1. Carbon monoxide is a colorless & odorless gas that is created when combustible appliances (furnace, water heater, gas ovens) do not completely use all the gas being […]

Fall is upon us, and the winter weather will quickly be here too! Do you have everything done around your house before it gets too cold?  I’ve already been getting requests to clean gutters and fix some leaks, exterior carpentry repair and sealing, and weather strips around doors and windows.  Sound familiar to you?  Now’s […]

GOOD NEWS!!

Since I started my business I have mainly accepted cash and check for payment of services. Once in a while I would have a customer that needed to use a credit card, and could only do that if they had a Paypal account and their card was attached to it. Not anymore! Wichita Handyman is proud […]

Evergrain Deck Installation

The photos display the finished installation of a top of the line Evergrain composite deck and pathway/step lights installed over the winter of 2009. We had to rebuild most of the structure because of weather rot. But once we put the new joists on, we used a special coating on the joists to make them last […]
