We are in the final finishing stages of our rehab. and are having a hard time getting these last niggly tasks completed ourselves. We don't want to deal with any more "contractors" who quote the job and then do none of the work themselves...just take a margin. What we really need is an individual handyman who is competent in tiling, trim, installing doors and the like.


Do any of you here have any recommendations for someone who can help us? We are not "Angie's List" subscribers.

Chicago Handyman.  He and his guys do all their own work.  773.317.9645.  They have done a ton of work for me over the years.

My brother-in-law is a carpenter, he is very good at his trade.  I can try and set up an interview if you would like, he also lives here in Oak Park. E-mail me at ravogs59@yahoo.com as I do not check in here much.


Thanks Ricky

On a related note, the house that we're moving into next week needs some drywall cut out, a leaky pipe (the condensate line from the attic furnace) behind it repaired and then the drywall replaced and the wall repainted. Any recommendations on who we can get to do this?

I replied to both of the emails you sent me, today I see they never went through no idea why.  you can call my cell phone # is 708-567-4602.


Thanks Ricky

Hi all,

Christie, this is an old thread, but did you (or anyone on these boards) find a handyman to do the last little tasks on your rehab? I'm looking for someone to do some tile work in our bathroom-- not a full-scale contractor or even a handyman consortium, but just an individual guy or gal who is competent with one-off tasks like tilework. 

I've searched through the boards and find references for companies, but let me know if anyone has a good reference. Thanks all!
