Malibu - June 7, 2022

Because I’d been so pleased with a painter from Neighbor2Neighbor, I thought I’d take a chance with another participant, namely Local Home Services. Within a short time of emailing, Derek got back to me. I gave him a list of things I needed done and he went the extra mile with his communication. He sent James to my home who conscientiously and methodically looked over my list and took the day to do it all. He worked hard and he was meticulous. That’s rare these days.

He did some major repairs including cutting out a section of an interior wall that was water damaged. It was beautifully patched and painted to match the rest of the wall. James repaired my brick fireplace and mixed the concrete so the color matched the old concrete as well. He also removed my kitchen door, repaired the weather stripping, aligned and painted the door, as well as enclosing and painting some of the eaves area that could be fire prone. All without going to the hardware store because he had all the materials he needed in his truck. The price was fair with the work completed at the quoted price.

Because of the quality of his work I have already recommended Local Home Services to others.

There is no doubt that Derek with Local Home Services is my first-choice hire for any handyman work. Some types of work he's completed in my home include wall repairs, plumbing projects, gate repair, wood staining, garage storage installation, and more. Derek's prices are in line with other high-quality handymen, and his work is worth every penny! He always gets the job done properly, and he leaves his work areas clean and spotless which I so appreciate. In addition to doing superb work, Derek is also a genuine guy and just easy to be around – he’s even great with my kids. I recommend Local Home Services to anyone seeking a conscientious and honest handyman that does outstanding work.

After years of home ownership, we finally found a handyman that we can stick with. The first time Derek visited our home, he quickly solved an issue that 4 previous professionals could not. Since that time, we've hired him many times to work on our house as well as our rental property. He's easy to contact, shows up on time, and does great quality work. We're very happy with Derek at Local Home Services.

Derek has done work in my home as well as the homes of others I know. He’s popular because he’s so good at what he does. Installing light fixtures, cabinetry work, and wall repair/plastering are a few examples of the types of projects I’ve seen him do. All professionally done. Plus, you won’t find a more reliable handyman service provider.

We’ve hired Derek multiple times to handle various home projects including lighting installations, painting, drawer/cabinet repairs, shade sail installation, faucet replacement, and more. He is reliable, punctual, and leaves work areas clean. I’ve even recommended him to my parents for their home. As a retired builder, my stepdad has very high standards – he appreciates the quality of Derek’s work. Over the past year, I’ve also been impressed by Derek's attention to COVID safety. He wears a mask and maintains distance when necessary. If you’re looking for a conscientious and reliable handyman, you can’t go wrong with Derek.
