A Reliable Handyman provides a variety of home repair services for a clientele base that stretches from Hercules to San Leandro. The company fixes light switches and faucets, hangs doors, repairs floors, replaces locks and windows, plasters and paints, handles minor carpentry work, assembles IKEA furniture, and much more.
Owner Gifford Teeple originally entered the handyman trade after working in Illinois as a property manager. He says he enjoys helping people and the physical nature of home repair work, and he feels that any job worth doing is worth doing right. “I do high-quality work and pay attention to details. I’m very thorough, and I leave jobsites as clean as I find them.”
Mr. Teeple says he takes pride in communicating honestly with his clients and always keeps them updated on project developments as work progresses. “Some jobs are too large, so repairs are limited to what I can complete by myself, but I always tell my customers beforehand what I can and can’t do.”
“Simply put, I strive to provide the repairs each customer wants. I might give some advice, but my basic approach is to understand my customers’ desires and do everything I can to achieve them.”
