Proving We Are The Best O’Fallon Handyman Team


According to Google a handyman is “a person able or employed to do occasional domestic repairs and minor renovations”. According to Merriam-Webster it is “a person who does odd jobs” and “one competent in a variety of small skills or inventive or ingenious in repair or maintenance work”. The definition is so broad that people can’t really put a thumb on everything they do. Handyman is synonymous with the famous saying “jack of all trades master of none”. Wikipedia even claims that “historically being a handyman was considered a less prestigious occupation than a specialist such as a plumber, electrician, or carpenter”. Generally if you ask around what the average handyman’s reputation is they are often categorized with and/or next to car salesmen, telemarketers, and mattress salesmen. Many women consider having a stranger (usually a man) in their home quite stressful.

Question: Why should I hire you instead of a specialist?

Answer: Phil Green served this nation in the United States of America Coast Guard from 1980 to 1986. For his country he traveled to the Artic, Guantanamo Bay Cuba, and Key West. He is so trustworthy and meticulous he worked in the safety office doing pollution investigation and vessel inspections. He brings that leadership and sense of responsibility to his business.

Imagine that you have to go shopping for groceries. You need to buy some windshield wiper fluid, soap, apples, and meat. Of course you don’t want bad quality anything. That is an absolute recipe for disaster. You still want quality, but you must admit some grocery stores are amazing. The staff are courteous, kind, and knowledgeable. It makes sense to go there most of the time. It saves time and money usually compared to going to an auto shop, Lush/Bath&Body Works/Bathhouse, an orchard, and the butcher. It is completely understandable if your car needs special fluid, if your skin is extremely sensitive, you find the experience of picking in the orchard fun, or if you need a specific cut of meat to go to the specialist, but rarely is there an occasion where you have to go to each individual place every time. For most work, you can get great service at your local Dierbergs. Some jobs we don’t do, but for the most part, we do a great solid job. I mean we have 100 things listed above!

They had the most amazing skilled plasterer I’ve ever had. They also installed a new door and frame. These men were very skilled and efficient. I will use them again for everything I need repaired.”
