I have a great guy that has done plumbing, electrical, floor sanding, you name it. He does this as a side hustle but super affordable and more importantly, trustworthy. His name is Orlando. Tell him Carla gave you his info, referrals are the only way he sees new customers 773-370-8147. Great guy and good luck!
I do handyman work for several buildings in the area as well as Noble Square. Would be happy to stop by and take a look at the job. You can reach me at 312-623-4413. I would be happy to provide references.
I am a painter with 25 years experience. I started my company Mitchell’s Fine Painting 3 years ago. I also do carpentry, lite plumbing and lite electrical. I too own a greystone 2 flat on Humboldt Park. So I am well aware what these old buildings need. I am honest, clean and respectful. I will treat your home as if it were mine. My number is (312) 576-3611. My email is email@example.com.
Kittyhop & Achilles; sorry, no real news, boiled-down to being a more complicated, structural project that required more expertise (err, "a bigger boat" for JAWS fans). We think we have light work to do... but we could be wrong-O! Going to just dive in and start getting one little bit at a time knocked out.
I recently used Fixer.com - a Chicago based handyman service - they were prompt and polite, allowed me to easily pay via credit card and have convenient online scheduling. They charge $94/hour and the handymen are all employees of the company.
Kittyhop, $94/hr is more than a lot of our little tasks are worth. Don't know about yours, but maybe try A1K Restoration for a comp quote. Note Irene's reco for them in the thread up top. They've got good cred on Yelp! https://www.yelp.com/biz/aik-restoration-and-repair-chicago?sort_by=rating_desc And Robin's always ready to recommend someone where the job doesn't exactly match their services. Realtors are also good sources for fixer-upper ppl if you know any realtors.
I would say $94/hour is a lot if you only need one thing done - but when you have a list of four or five things when turning over your rental unit, it is pretty convenient. They also only charge for the time they are working, not for the total time at your residence. I have been charged way more by other so called handymen for way less work.
