Thanks for visiting Handy Al, your quality South Georgian Bay (formerly Toronto) handyman!
Al provides handyman, home maintenance and home improvement services in the South Georgian Bay area. Servicing in and around Meaford, Thornbury, Collingwood & Owen Sound. Al combines old world craftsmanship with innovative and cost-effective creative solutions. Meticulous, detail-oriented and efficient work, together with sound design sense and courteous trouble-free service. Jobs big & small are all handled with care and attention at a fair and transparent price.
UPDATE: After a great run in Toronto, Al has returned to his roots and headed north to the beautiful shores of Georgian Bay. Al still needs to get around to updating his website when he has some free time (lol, as if!). Until then, please just substitute ‘South Georgian Bay’ for ‘Toronto’ from here on in. If you’re still in Toronto and want some work done by Al, please consider moving up north! If you’re up north already, feel free to drop me a line!
COVID UPDATE January 2021: Ontario is under a ‘stay at home’ order and so non-essential travel/construction work/new renovations etc. is off the table for now. If you have essential repairs that can’t wait, then all appropriate precautions will be taken. Otherwise let’s wait until things have settled down a bit. Stay Safe!
Toronto Handyman / Home Improvement Services
For basic handyman work, Al’s goal is to ensure a superior result at a competitive price. Funny little odd jobs requiring creative solutions are a specialty. As of course are your standard run of the mill fix-it-up scenarios. Assembly & installation of new home accessories, cabinets, IKEA products, kitchen & bathroom decor, shelving etc. is another staple. Whatever form of TLC your home requires, Al can help. Al’s short, non-exhaustive list of services is found here.
In larger remodeling / home improvement projects Al applies classic design elements with modern materials and an eye to detail to ensure aesthetically pleasing and practically functional quality results every time.
Al regularly gets around the Highway 26 corridor from Colllingwood & Thornbury to Meaford & Owen Sound. Drop me a line and I’ll be happy to schedule a consultation at your convenience.
Buying or Selling a Home?
So you’ve purchased a new home and have a to-do list to take care of before, during or after moving day. Al is always happy to schedule a free no obligation meeting to discuss your list & ideas for your new home. Scheduling during a pre-possession inspection visit can be a convenient way to prepare to get things going as quickly as possible after closing.
If you’re getting ready to sell your home, Al can work with you and/or your real estate agent to provide the most ‘bang-for-your-buck’ wow-factor to maximize your home’s resale value. There are many affordable ways to quickly improve the aesthetic appeal of a home for resale, consequently increasing the number of interested buyers.
Often it’s difficult for us to assess our homes objectively since we’re so accustomed to them. An experienced, objective, second set of eyes can help. In this sizzling real estate market, greater aesthetic appeal means more interested buyers. More interested buyers means higher prices and even bidding wars. Bidding wars have been the norm in Toronto for years now, and are making their way north. Experience counts. Make Al’s years of experience getting homes ready for sale in the Toronto real estate market work for you on the Bay! Please contact Al to schedule a free no-obligation meeting to discuss ideas if you’re thinking about or preparing to sell your home.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – Green & Socially Conscious
Wherever possible, Al favours environmentally friendly options (which benefit the planetary environment as well as your home’s micro-environment) in choices of materials and techniques. Al will deliver suitable fixtures etc. to otherwise be disposed of to a Toronto Habitat for Humanity ReStore (or as appropriate) for donation at no additional cost.
