They provided a good assessment of the problem, and an effective repair. I am a fully satisfied client, and would highly recommend them to others.

I just had a great experience with them, and I will recommend them to anyone. I will definitely be calling them again.
They were wonderful to work with and I would hire them again at any time. They were professional, cleaned up after themselves, payed attention to detail, and got the job done.
I would certainly recommend them for any project that you are considering. They are extremely honest, very well meaning, and hardworking, and they always complete the project in a satisfactory manner.
I've done a few projects with them - an elevator, a kitchen, and handyman services - and they are absolutely wonderful. They really are a part of my life. If I need a repairman, I call them.
We were very pleased that when we called to get a part of the job rechecked that someone came out quickly and was able to deal with the problem.
I'm a very happy customer and the people they sent were outstanding - they did outstanding work. It was a pleasant experience, I would never call anybody else but this company.
The roofer was efficient and comprehensive in looking over the roof and found quite a few problems to repair.
I was impressed with the cooperation of the worker, and the interest he showed.
We found H&P very helpful with the selection process, especially with regards to the finishes for our masterbathroom. Special thanks to Lea Allen.
Joe Leonard and his team were great in keeping costs in line with your extensively negotiated budget. Any additional costs were due to decisions that we made during the project. There we absolutely no surprises.
I appreciated the expertise, advise and suggestions, and courtesy of both of the handymen who worked on my home.
They are highly professional and have a high level of skill. Hopkins & Porter Handymen's subcontractors are very professional. The project leader was also very talented and skilled. I was highly satisfied with the work that they completed on our home.
I was highly satisfied with the attention to detail and the skill level of all of the subcontractors.
It was a complicated job. The handymen knew how to handle it.
All H&P staff were very professional and polite throughout the process. The workmanship was strong and quality materials were used. We are generally pleased with the overall design and final execution. I would be more inclined to recommend H&P to friends had the estimated nine week project not been delayed for six weeks from the date of contract signing and then take another three months to complete. We did not have a clear start and substantial completion date in our contract and this may have impacted how our project was prioritized. There were also some dimension glitches that could have been identified earlier in the process thereby reducing on-site issues/delays.
Dear Valued customer - We appreciate your constructive input. We recognize that we failed you on several fronts, from confusion around the initial start date to persistent problems with the delivery of incorrect material and the dimension glitches you mention. Most of these could have been avoided, and we apologize for the inconvenience that this caused you. We have already done a debriefing of your project with our team analyzing what went wrong. We intend to use this to improve our service going forward, and we look forward to serving you better in the warranty stage of our relationship. Thank you again for your patience and honest input.
Nick Linbergh has done many projects for me and is very professional in what he does. I wouldn't hesitate to use him again. He represents Hopkins & Porter in a very positive way so that I can put trust in the company and especially him. I feel I would not be cheated or run around.
promptness, high quality, reasonable price
I like Dan. He's knowledgeable, skilled and confident. What any client calling in a handyman would want.
Overall, we have been extremely pleased with Hopkins & Proter to date. We especially like the weekly updates from the Project Manager.
Our new master bathroom fits our home, our style and most importantly our family life. It helps to keep things organized and is such a pleasant, peaceful room to be in that everyone wants a turn in it. We love the work that Hopkins and Porter did for us.
They were highly responsive. Whenever I called, they sent someone by very quickly.
THE HANDYMAN WHO HANDLED OUR WORK WAS MORE THAN COMPETENT (HE HAD MANY YEARS EXPERIENCE IN CARPENTRY AND IT SHOWED!), OFFERED USEFUL SUGGESTIONS, KEPT ME WELL- INFORMED ABOUT ANY DELAYS OR POTENTIAL BUDGET CHANGES (IN THE EVENT, THERE WERE NONE - HE ACTUALLY SAVED US MONEY!).
I am extremely pleased and would recommend them to anyone.
The courtesy, the competence, the efficiency, and the general comfort level in working with the office and the handyman was just about perfect.
The cost of everything is top cost, but the look and service was superior and I believe I got my money's worth or service.
They came back quickly to address and issue that wasn't done to the real estate agents satisfation
responsiveness,professionalism, quality of work
They were terrific, I have recommended them to my sister and she is using them now. I will definitely have them back to do some work when I need it. Just terrific. great!
This is our first experience with home improvement and we researched several firms before deciding on H & P. We have been very impressed with the quality of their work. They have been very considerate of our needs. They don't cut corners and use quality materials. Our construction foreman (lead carpenter) and our architect have been outstanding to work with. We have been very satisfied with their work thus far.
