Thank you Steve 4/8/2010

Steve does very good work, and is very reasonably priced. Steve was hired to install tile in our elevator, and do some pressure washing. Steve did an excellent job, and is very pleasant (and funny) person to deal with! I will be remodeling my bath in the next few months, and I am already thinking about the materials I will use, but not who is going to do it. Steve is already helping me. Thanks Steve more

Way better than a contractor! 10/20/2009

I found Steve on this website - My husband & I hired Steve to do some demolition in our basement in preparation for a complete remodel. Because we were remodeling on a tight budget, we had a tough time finding reasonably priced contractors. Steve's rate was very reasonable; on top of that, it seemed to be a point of pride to him to stay within his written quote, even if the work took longer than expected. Well, we are just about finished with our brand new basement. Hiring Steve for this project was the best choice me and my husband could have made. I would also like to add that I observed that Steve seemed to take a kind of ownership of this remodel; on several occasions, several of the other people we hired (plumbers, concrete, etc.), did substandard work that Steve pointed out that had to be corrected. Steve Having Steve on the project made me feel immensely comfortable. Last note: This project took the better part of a year. We decided to have Steve do the majority of the work simply because he did a good job, period. When we get ready to remodel our kitchen next year, we definitely will be calling Steve more

What's way better than a boyfriend 9/12/2008

A handyman who comes when you call - who sticks to his quotes, who does good work and is just an all around good guy. There's a tug of war going on between me and my uncle as to who gets to use him next - I've released him cause he just finished installing a new back door, powerwashed my house, cleaned my gutters, rebuilt and stained my decrepit deck so it looks brand new! steve is well intentioned and honest - hard to find these days!Thanks Steve for helping me with my summer projects more

Touch up and paint 6/12/2008

Steve did a great job painting the interior of our entire house. He even did two accent walls at no extra cost. We needed him to finish quickly because we wanted to get our house on the market as soon as possible. He worked long hours to get the job done in a timely manner. He did a great job repairing the cracks in the walls and caulking throughout the house using nothing but high quality products. He also repaired some shoddy work that a previous handyman did at no extra charge. I would highly recommend his services. more

Cautionary Tale 6/10/2008

We hired Steve Myers to help remodel a front porch in May 2008. Steve comes across as a pleasant, and experienced handyman, but after our dealings with him I would warn any homeowner against hiring him. As is often the case with home improvement projects, our porch project turned out to be more involved than we had originally planned. When we first met Steve I had concerns about whether person who bills himself as a "handyman" would be up to the job, even when it seemed as if the project would be fairly straight forward. Throughout our dealings with him, even as it became apparent that the project would involve a complete re-do of the porch, Steve repeatedly assured us he felt entirely comfortable with the job. He suggested that his abilities were more along the lines of a contractor, saying that others had encouraged him to get his contractors license, but that he had chosen not to do so because he liked to work on his own, and had not been satisfied with the quality of work of others. I asked Steve whether he was licensed and bonded, and initially he said he was, then said something about "working with someone who is." Stupidly, I did not pursue this any further. Ultimately, Steve demolished our entire covered porch. Two days later he failed to show up for work. Later that day he called and said that he had been "pulling [his] hair out " trying to determine what to do and had decided he had to abandon our project. He cited family issues and "a couple of smaller projects [I have] going" that needed his attention--this after he had torn off the entire front of our house, rendering the front entrance unusable, and exposing the frame of the house to the elements. He recommended a contractor friend of his, whom he said was "even better than me," who never follow up with us, and whom I later found out has a suspended license. Over the next several days we left multiple messages with Steve saying that we needed to meet with him to settle our account, as we had given him approximately $4000. He never called back, but 5 days later came to our house to gather items he had left behind, and also to leave a note on the door indicating that we owed him another $600+. When my husband heard him in the front, he had him come in the house, at which point Steve offered to "waive the rest" of the fee, and even gave us a "gift certificate" for another 8 hours of "free work." In my husband's (generous) opinion, Steve may in fact have some family issues, and used them as an excuse to abandon a project he realized he was unqualified to complete. In my (less generous) opinion, Steve did nothing less than repeatedly lie about his experience, and then had no qualms about ditching us and his responsibilities when it suited him. I am further appalled by the fact that he even considered leaving us a bill for another $600+, as well as by his conceit that we would ever want to have anything more to do with him, except, perhaps, in the setting of small claims court. Steve said that his referrals come by word of mouth, many as a result of Judy's Book postings. I hope our experience may help others avoid being duped by this unethical man. more

Very Happy! 6/6/2008

I found Steve through this website; This guy is gifted! My husband put me in charge of the bathroom remodel that we really needed to get done this year, as our primary bathroom is just about go kaput. Steve went beyond what I expected from a builder - I took note of the fact that he listened, offered advice when asked, and gave me straight answers. In the end, the project went smoothly - more so than I had anticipated. Steve impressed me so much, that I am going to have him start on our old bathroom as soon as his time allows. I would reccommend to anyone who reads this to give Steve a call - you will be better off for it! more

Handyman Extraordinaire 8/29/2007

I found out about Steve from this website and I’m so glad I did. He is amazing! He helped me completely renovate a house from top to bottom. He did almost everything: drywall, painting, trim work, tiling, door installation, deck repair, fence and retaining wall construction, earth moving, debris removal, lawn care, etc, etc. He went above and beyond duty by working long hours to meet some tight deadlines. I was impressed with his knowledge, skill, and attention to detail. Everything he did looks great and he is very reasonably priced! It was a pleasure to work with him. I would recommend Steve to anyone! more

All that & a bag of chips!!! 6/4/2007

I am very fussy and a bit apprehensive when it comes to hiring someone for my home projects. I contacted Steve to inquire about a patio deck re-build at the suggestion of a friend who had hired Steve for some work.Steve listened to what I wanted to accomplish, then he asked a whole lot of questions. I was impressed with the fact that Steve brought along samples of various materials that could be used for my project, explaining the pros and cons of those materials, and the cost. During the demolition of the current patio, Steve discovered wood rot. After spending a few minutes calming me down, Steve made a number of suggestions about how to solve this new problem, and what the cost. The bottom line: I couldn't be more happy with the results. My new patio deck is very solid. It's clear to me that Steve not only enjoys what he does but he also takes real pride in his work. I would reccommend Steve to anyone. more

Great Patio Builder! I Highly Reccommend Steve! 10/5/2006

Steve is a patient, responsible, and talented craftsman. He demolished our existing patio, built a new, larger one, and even used his talent to re-create an herb garden for us. He had great design ideas, and went above and beyond what we expected for a great price. more

Steve Myers Handyman Services 9/20/2006

Wow! Is it a brand new deck? Last year when my Trex deck was pressure washed, one could hardly tell that it had been cleaned. This week, Steve Myers performed the same service and removed not only the current accumulation of dirt and yucky stuff, but all of the residue that had defeated the other guy last year. Am I pleased? You betcha! more

A good find!!! 7/13/2006

I discovered Steve through my mother; she is 83 years old, and lives by herself. She was referred to Steve by a friend of hers, and had hired Steve on and off for about 7 years. I had met Steve at various times while visiting with my Mom, and noted that he always would drop what he was doing to give my Mom a hand when she needed it. Since I had mentioned to mom that I was going to remodel the basement of my house, but so far had bad luck with finding a good contractor, Mom advised me to contact Steve. Since my Mom trusts Steve, I thought I could do no worse than at least calling him. Steve got back to me quickly, and came on time for our appointment. For about 2 hours in the basement, we talked about everything. Steve listened to my ideas and my concerns. He offered (and I took him up on it), to take me to Home Depot to look at various materials for my remodel, explained the pros and cons of materials, and gave me a lot to think about. Steve never asked for any compensation for his time spent at HD, and thus I was sufficiently impressed with Steve's knowledge and desire to be of service to me, that I asked him to write me up a quote. I got back to him within the hour, after he gave me that quote. His quote was very reasonable (and simply detailed), and allowed me to get everything done, without sacrificing anything. Steve finished the remodel on time and within my budget. I have already recommended Steve to my friends, and I intend to use Steve in the near future to check off more items on my "honey do" list more

Still waiting 7/11/2006

I talked with Steve in February of this year and after meeting with him twice I am still waiting for a final bid. Ive called him and he doesn't call back. I am baffled that he has had this many glowing reviews when my experience has been sub par. more

Another fine job by Steve Myers 6/7/2006

I was also referred to Steve by a friend that had hired him. I was seeking a total backyard remodel for my new townhouse thanks to a subpar landscaping job by my builder (thank you....not... Andrew Austin Inc). When I met with Steve, he offered several options and was conscious of price. I was seeking a complete fence rebuild, raised flower beds, new brick patio, and stone walkway (a pretty big job in my opinion). Steve quoted a price for labor the entire job and indicated that if the job went over he would not deviate from the quoted labor price. He provided receipts for materials without any markups, which is not always the case for contractors. Accordingly, for this type of approach it is also important that you do your homework and have a good idea of your project scope, as materials can be expensive. Steve kept in touch with me at every step of the way and, the project turned out great, even better than I anticipated. The job actually took more labor time than originally intended, but Steve stuck to his word with regards to his original quote for labor. I enjoyed working with Steve and the project turned out to be a pretty fun experience. I'm am certainly planning to hire Steve for additional jobs in the future for my townhouse and would highly recommend him to others. more

The best "handyman" in Seattle 4/10/2006

Steve is definitely more than a handyman. His experience, skill and professionalism make him a superstar!! He has helped us with both interior & exterior projects, and he always exceeds our expectations. Steve is reliable, very personable, stays within the timeframe & budget, and brings a variety of experience to the table. I will definitely use him again in the near future, and would DEFINTELY recommend him to others. I suggested him to my mother-in-law, and she is thrilled with the work Steve did to update her kitchen . -Redesigned & landscaped entire side yard, including rototilling, soil removal, plant selection, materials procurement (soil, rocks, flagstone, plants, border, slab remover), digging, planting and more. An amazing job that our entire neighborhood has complemented us on. -Repaired & replaced ceiling from winter water damage. -Rototilled yard and advised us on replacing back lawn. -Worked with mother-in-law to replace ancient kitchen tiles & paint/install wainscott more

Steve Myers -Total Care Services- A Great Find! 3/2/2006

I hesitate to add my voice to those who have praised Steve because I don't want everyone to start using him! But, I have to be fair and say he was a great guy who showed up when he said he would, charged what he said he would (totally reasonable), did what he said he would, and knew what he was doing. Plus, he was great to have around! We have already signed him up for more. But please, don;t tell everyone- then he'll be too busy for me! more

All that I expected and more! 2/19/2006

I was referred to Steve by a friend that had hired him. Steve turned out to be just the ticket. Steve showed up on time, and was very professional. I contacted Steve to get an estimate on what it would cost to remodel my bathroom. Steve was very helpful - he provided me not only a reasonable written quote, but also a lot of valuable free advice; he even took in one step further by accompanying me to the hardware store to look at new cabinets, sinks, etc. The entire project from start to finish was as smooth as glass; Steve obviously takes great pride in his work, and most important, I was extremely satisfied with the quality of the work as well as Steve's focus on being on time and in budget. When Steve asked me to give him a review, I felt it was the least I could do. I would recommend to anyone that if you have work around your house that needs to be done, you might want to call Steve. more

Handyman, consultant, stand up guy 2/16/2006

A friend recommended Steve and he proved to be a real find. Kept his appointments, did nice, clean work and offered creative solutions to problems (some of which I didn't even realize I had until he showed me). I have recommended him to my neighbors and he's coming back to do more work this week. His rates are fair and so far he seems to be good at everything from painting to gardening and carpentry. more

Another Judy's Book Success Story! Steve Myers Handyman 11/26/2005

I took the lead from my Judy's Book community and called Steve for handyman services for my Ballard 4-Plex and left a message. He promptly returned my phone call and followed up each and every time we scheduled an appointment. He arrived on time, very punctual. I find his manner to be pleasant. Clearly he had a code of professionalism. I look forward to hiring him for jobs large and small. more

Great Handyman! 10/20/2005

Steve was referred by a friend when I was looking for someone to refinish my deck. The work Steve did was outstanding. He pressure-washed, sanded, and stained my deck - all at a reasonable price compared to other conrtractors I talked to. Steve was professional, on-time, and on budget. I plan on using Steve again for future home projects. Give him a call. more

Great contractor or handyman for projects 10/6/2005

I was introduced to Steve, an independent home projects professional, through a colleague at work who worked with him to refinish his deck. I too, had him refinish my deck, which I am very happy with. He is currently finishing up a general remodel of our basement. If you are looking for someone to help with house projects, I highly recommend that you talk to Steve knowing how hard it is to find a quality handyman or contractor that produce great results. Based on the other 5+ contractors I have spoken to, Steve is resonably priced. more
