Hire Urban Handyman
Thanks for you interest in hiring me for your projects. I created this page to help save us both some time by answering the most common questions I receive. Please read this page in before submitting a quote request.
Two quick things
- My name is Dehn, pronounced “Dane.”
- I will communicate with you mostly by email. It’s how I am able to efficiently do the handyman work and run my business without being overwhelmed. I am responsive and will respond to you same day usually but no more than 24 hours.
The good stuff
I get a lot of quote requests and this is great however I can’t be all things to all people.
Some handyman or handyman businesses may claim to do it all, “one call does it all.” I am just one person and there are some projects for which I am not qualified to do. Others that I do not like or want to do. Rather than trying to please everyone I prefer to accept projects that I am qualified to do as well as projects that I like to do.
With this in mind, you know that when you hire me you are hiring someone qualified for the task at hand. I will do a good job because the work is something I like to do.
Here is a short list I work that I do not do
- Flooring, except interlocking plank vinyl and engineered wood plank flooring.
- Full service remodeling
