A good handyman or contractor for stuff around the house?

hammer headGretchen emails:

My husband and I are getting ready to move and need some small handyperson type jobs done around the house like fixing a small hole in the detached garage roof, putting some trim on our laminate floors (a DIY project which got waylaid), and small painting projects.

Know of a good handyperson or contractor who might be able to help Gretchen and her husband? Please share!

My husband and I recently had some minor projects done by Fast Eddie's Handyman Service. Eddie is a great guy, with fair prices, and he does outstanding work - fast.

He did new closet doors, fixed our exterior light, and installed new gutters. Highly recommended! He's in CP.

Sorry, what's the location you're looking for service in?

@chris - our current house is in Colonie, but the house we are buying needs a lot of work too and that's located in West Sand Lake/Defreetsville. If we like the person we hire, we were hoping to use them at the new property too.

Ben Sela of Iosco Construction is great. Quality work,

Sounds like you need Todd Jobs! 518-857-5602. Todd started his business because he saw people constantly getting ripped off by contractors, etc and felt there was a market for people who need little odd jobs done. You get contractor quality work at a great price - $40/hr -he can basically do anything - and if he can't he tells you and doesn't waste your time! Tell him that Dan O. sent you.

[A]nother factor that allows some politicians to slide into corrupt practices is the overriding notion that if they hadn't chosen to become "public servants" that they'd be making mega bucks on the corporate world. Which maybe they would. But it seems to give them license (in their own minds) to exploit any ethical grey area to make up for that loss of income.
