We used Tom before and didn't hesitate to hire Tom again for our next project..... to install a flush mounted electric fireplace into a wall. Existing electrical had to be relocated so Tom referred a qualified electrician who was very reasonably priced. After cutting the opening Tom had to support the load bearing wall and build a base to support the 12" firebox. Holes were patched up and drywall was made paint ready. Tom did an amazing job and the fireplace looks awesome. My expectations are high and Tom is the man.
We have already hired Tom to do our next project, the laundry room.
Thanks again Tom.
I cannot express how pleased I am with the work Tom did for me and I would highly recommend him to anyone. From my first meeting with him, I felt comfortable knowing a great job would be done. He took the time to explain things to me before he went ahead with work and even offered to pick up the floor tiles because they would be so heavy for me! I am thrilled with the floor and if I ever have to have anything done he is the one I'll call. Top ratings, for sure!!
We knew Tom would be great from the day he came over to quote some jobs. Quotes were right on the mark. Tom clearly takes pride in his work. Highly professional and such a nice guy to deal with too. We will have him back for sure!
Tom made a point of assessing my Leaky shower door and went with the most feasible alternative without trying to upgrade me on a whole new shower or door installation. It was a simple fix to the leaky door which only needed a diverter on the original door and a pro to assemble. Very happy as there are no more puddles when I step out onto my bath mat. Very affordable and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.
Tom was amazing...we provided him with a list of small jobs to do at our house and he did them all to our satisfaction. Clean, quick and excellent craftsmanship. He even went out and bought the materials that we needed for these jobs; sending us pictures before he picked up the items. We were impressed! Highly recommend him for any type of job you need done. We will be using him again.
I contacted Tom on the Internet and following this successful job, we feel fortunate that we have made his acquaintance. Tom was a pleasure to do business with as he communicated frequently, did things as he said he would, successfully installed the fan and was a pleasure to have around. We felt confident of his knowledge and skill from the initial assessment and were certainly correct in thinking he is a great contact for anyone living in a home. We already have other jobs that we are talking to Tom about.
Tom provided a thorough and timely inspection of our "to do" list. He followed that up with superior workmanship and great customer engagement. We were pleased with all the work Tom and his team completed. We won't hesitate to contact Goodfellow again.
I had a very positive experience. I found goodfellows on the Internet. We arranged a time for the assessment of the job , I received a written quote in a timely fashion and once I accepted it the work was done soon after and to my satisfaction.
Tom promptly replied to my inquiry and was out to evaluate our door shortly thereafter. He repaired it the same day, shifting the entire frame and now the door opens and closes smoothly. He was a pleasure to work with and now we are preparing our "to-do" list!
Tom and his son accomplished a wonderful renovation of my family room. All of the work, from floor to ceiling was completed professionally within the proposed time preiod. He listened, made appropriate suggestions and kept to budget. His workspace was always tidied at the end of the work day. Tom is prompt, respectful and trustworthy. I will continue to call him for further projects and refer him to others.
Thanks so much Tom and Son for the awesome job you did building my deck. I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I especially love the black aluminum spindles and louvered panels. I've received so many compliments on your workmanship. Thanks for all your hard work and friendly service. I was so impressed with how tidy my house was at the end of each day. Absolutely love my new deck.
Thank you Tom for a superb 11 week project. Your excellent workmanship, flexibility to adjust to the unknowns and creativity made for a beautiful basement reno.
Highly Recommended and very professional. We gave Tom a long list of general items (caulking, painting & installing 1/4 round, replacing a door & frame, installing bathroom fixtures, painting, etc.) that we wanted completed in order to put our house on the market. He did that and more! Tom was very helpful and knowledgeable with items we weren't sure how to do ourselves. He had a co-op student with him for a few of the visits, who also did a fantastic job - just shows what a great teacher can do! His prices are very reasonable as well - we did his daily rate and found it to be money well spent! Saved us time and the hassle (with young kids!). Thanks and Great Job Tom!
VERY PLEASED ! Tom was provided to us on referral after we had the dreaded experience of a sewer back-up that required a full restoration of our basement. This was no small task, but from the get go Tom had provided us with ease of comfort though his professionalism, knowledge and thought his trusted confidence in seeing to getting our home back to normal.
Tom is a hard worker who was on the job everyday, he is very well organized, communicates well and takes pride in the work that he does. Good honest contractors are hard to find, so it was refreshing not to have the added daily stress of worry that comes with a contractor in your home, we knew we were in good hands with Tom from Goodfellow Handyman Services.
Service is top notch and our basement looks great ! Without hesitation we would gladly refer Goodfellow Handyman Services.
I found Tom Goodfellow's service to be extremely professional from beginning to end. He was on time for both appointments, clear about costs, respectful of my condo building rules and very skilled and clean with his work. Tom was a pleasure to deal with and I intend to refer him to friends, family and clients.
Tom has done a variety of small jobs for us.. We are very please with the quality of the updates, repairs and his prices. We have and will continue to recommend Tom to others
Beth and Fred W.
After a recent move we found additional storage was sorely needed. Tom provided great advice and ideas, completing the projects in good time, never leaving before our home was clean and tidy.
Our laundry room and kitchen were reworked with new cabinets, and closets made more functional.
Tom couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly, and has returned for occasional smaller jobs. I would absolutely recommend Goodfellow Handyman Service for Tom's great work at affordable prices.
We have contract Tom several times over the past 12 months and we are delighted to have found someone local and who we can trust. The work he has done includes painting a pergola, diverting downspouts, drywall and baseboard installation amongst several other odd jobs around the house.
He thoroughly explains how the job will be done and the work is always completed on time. He is honest and courteous and extremely trustworthy. The quality of his workmanship is excellent, and he ensures everything is completed as quoted.
If you are looking for a reliable, high-quality Handyman service, my wife and I definitely recommend Goodfellow Handyman Service.
Throughout our experience with Goodfellow, we were treated to exceptionally professional, personable service, accurate written estimates, great quality workmanship (above and beyond expectations), and delivery - when and as promised! I realize those points should be 'givens' for any service business, but we certainly have had less positive contractor experiences. Goodfellow's delivered on time, as promised without any fuss, and went out of their way to get our jobs done right.
It isn't surprising that Goodfellow Handyman Service has so many positive reviews - and we are very happy to add our review to that chorus! We will definitely be calling on Goodfellow for more help in the spring!
We had renovated our bathroom ourselves however there was a few jobs that just needed an expert hand and knowledge. Everything was done superbly and we are very happy with the work done. This included re-caulking the tub, fixing some trim and paint touch ups. I would highly recommend Tom.
To class job. Job done in reasonable time frame and in line with quoted cost. Woul not hesitate to employ Tom again and recommend to others.
We are happy to submit a very positive review of Tom, and the Goodfellow Handyman Service. Tom runs his company in a very professional manner, making and keeping appointments, submitting written estimates, and discussing details with the clients. Besides doing excellent work, we found him to be most honest and easy to work with. He also cleaned up after himself, and was very careful with our possessions. We would hire him again in an instant.
We all know the feeling - the dreaded to-do list is getting out of hand, and other commitments keep you from making any progress on it whatsoever. So what do you do? You call in a pro. And that's what we did last week when we reached out to Tom Goodfellow.
This isn't the first time we've had Tom over to help out at our house. When we first bought the place, we called Tom for help with several immediate fixes, including tiling a bathroom floor, installing a shower surround and removing some truly disgusting 1970s-era shag broadloom from several rooms and a staircase. Our experience working with Tom was so positive that when we once again needed some extra hands, asking him to return was a no-brainer.
This time around it was all small stuff, but plenty of it ... some plumbing work (fixing a leaky toilet), some electrical work (putting in some new light fixtures both inside and outside the house) and such. Tom's visit quickly took care of our to-do list, and let us focus on looming work deadlines instead. Perfect!
You expect a contractor to show up on time, present a clean, courteous and professional image, and perform the work both on-time and on-budget. Which Tom does. What we truly appreciate is that he doesn't just show up and do the work, but that he treats your house like it's his own home, so the attention to detail is really off the charts. We also love that he makes helpful suggestions along the way based on his experience contributing thoughtful and useful input we hadn't considered otherwise. To us, that represents huge additional value, and truly sets Tom apart.
And when he's wrapped up, the work area is always left clean. There are no leftover screws to step on, dust to sweep up, or glue drips to deal with. Thank you.
Next up for us is a renovation to our basement, and Tom will be the first person we call. He does great work, and treats your home with care and respect. We can't recommend him highly enough.
Tom Goodfellow of Goodfellow Handyman Service has helped me a great deal with work in my home. Some of the jobs have been small and there have been a few urgent situations. Tom replies quickly to my calls, gets the job done in a timely fashion and the bill is reasonable. He is friendly and helpful with advice. Most important to me is that Tom always shows up as arranged and he tries to accommodate my schedule.
Just want to take a moment to provide some feedback on our great experience we had with Tom Goodfellow of Goodfellow Handyman Service. We decided to redo our bathroom and Tom was referred to us. It turned out to be a great experience for us. Tom was very courteous, precise and affordable. He was always available for questions and provided us with his own input. The project was done in a reasonable time and all in all, we are very happy.
I would recommend Mr.Goodfellow to anyone. His work is meticulous. He cleans after his work and when
finished his price is the same as quoted.
My wife contacted Tom, who we had never dealt with before, and Tom came over within a day or so to give us an estimate for the work that we requested. The cost quoted was fair and Tom was able to perform the work shortly after the quote was received and accepted by us. We found Tom a very pleasant person and for most of the first day he was in the house by himself as my wife and I had other commitments. We never worried about that as we completely trusted Tom and we were right in doing so. The work was completed on time and on budget and the end result was beyond our expectation. I highly recommend Tom's services and would have no hesitation in hiring him for future projects.
We have been delighted with Tom's work. He has completed a variety of small jobs for us from painting and crown moulding installation to door hanging and appliance installation. He is punctual, reliable, courteous and extremely conscientious with his work. He is a creative problem solver - often finding innovative solutions to challenging installations and very reasonably priced - always coming in at or below the quoted price. We would recommend Tom without reservation.
Initially, I was looking for someone to take down a chandelier prior to my move, & re-install it in my new home, when I came across Tom on the Internet. This has led to a whole host of different household handyman jobs, completed over the past few weeks, all of which I am extremely pleased with. Tom is most reliable, trustworthy, reasonably priced, & will turn his hand to just about anything one might need doing, & is particularly adept at hanging pictures! I found him as much a perfectionist as myself, & would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone
I was referred to Tom by a friend - he had originally fixed a leaking pipe from the upstairs bathroom and I needed his help to complete our basement. I did the framing and placed the drywall and Tom was more than understanding when it came time to tape and mud. He fixed some of my mistakes and also went above and beyond what we had discussed in order to make the basement look professional. Tom was always on time and communicated issues when they came up. I trust Tom to be alone in my house, to bring up any issues he sees and to complete the job on time. I have heard horror stories from friends who hired the wrong contractor. As a new home owner I am happy that I have found one I can trust. I will use Tom again in the future and would recommend him to friends or family in need of work around the house.
This young man is well named as he is, indeed, a good fellow in every sense of the word and has all the attributes that we would hope our own children have.
Thoroughly honest, trustworthy and we will use no other and wish him every success in life, richly deserved!
Nothing asked of him is too much trouble.
Sincerely- Peter and Joy.
Tom does outstanding work, his prices are good value, and he is definitely a trustworthy person. I can't say enough about how please we are with the quality of his work.
Tom was professional at all times. He ensured that he provided all of the information up front and made sure I understood timelines etc. before he started. The quality of the workmanship was excellent. I would call Tom again!
We were very happy with the quality of work Tom provided, he did an excellent job tiling my bathroom, he was very professional, reasonably priced, and punctual. I would certainly hire Tom again for future reno's in my home.
We initially hired Tom to do some bathroom renovations and install a dining room light fixture. Having found Tom through an Internet search and having read the numerous positive comments on his work, we soon learned that these people really knew what they were talking about. From the outset, Tom provided us with quality workmanship in a timely manner at a very reasonable rate. We were happy with his work and had him come back to paint the interior of our townhouse. Again, very impressed with his professionalism. Tom even fixed the latch of our gate without being asked (something I'd been after the condo association to do for the past 6 months). Thanks again Tom.
Have you ever wished you could have a kindly sprite come into your home while you were at work to do all those handyman-type jobs that are on your wish list? Someone with the expertise to accomplish a wide variety of contracting tasks to make your home just the way you want it? Someone who would do these jobs quickly and skillfully to the highest standards, then quietly leave again, leaving everything tidy and clean, with no trace of being there, other than a magical transformation for you to enjoy when you get home?
Tom Goodfellow of Goodfellow Handyman Service is just this someone. From the outset, starting with his first friendly phonecall in response to my inquiry, I felt assured I was dealing with a highly experienced contractor with a wide range of skills who wasn t going to mess me around; and I was proved quite correct. He is most knowledgeable and is also able to suggest a variety of ways to tackle jobs, including less costly alternatives if one has budget constraints.
Tom is professional in all aspects of his business, from his appearance, to arriving punctually for his appointments, to completing his work within the timeframe he gives you. His workmanship and craftsmanship are of the highest quality and you can be assured that you ll get exactly what was agreed upon; he sticks to the terms of his quote with no hidden surprises. Even the administrative side of his business runs smoothly and unobtrusively in the background with no delays or hitches.
You won t regret hiring Tom Goodfellow. Quite apart from being an outstanding contractor, he is a thoroughly nice guy and a pleasure to have around. I am a very satisfied and content customer and highly recommend his work.
Tom was courteous and informative and did an excellent job on our basement. We would gladly hire him again.
Tom from Goodfellow handyman was by far the best contractor that I've done business with. He was very clean and made sure that the area he was working on was tidy before leaving for the day. His work was done at a very high calibre and I would put him in the ranks of the elite when it comes to flooring, painting etc. He's a one man show and gets the job done on time. He's a pleasure to do business with and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to do renovations on their home.
Excellent work! Would recommend Tom in a heartbeat and will use him again certainly!
My husband an I found Tom through an Internet search on Google and from the initial phone conversation, we were very impressed with him. He had asked us to email him a list of what we were asking him to accomplish and he got back to us right away with a time frame and his hourly rate. The list you send him is not only his check list, but it's also a list for him to stop by the hardware store and come to your home prepared to do the work. He's very personable, a hard worker and if there is a job he can't do, he is more then willing to offer who can do the job... that means a lot! We were also impressed with him getting the most out of his mobile phone. If there is an item that needs to be purchased, say a kitchen facet, Tom will email you several styles to pick from and purchase it himself. It saves you time from having to go to the hardware store and you know it going to work... BIG plus! I think you can see how efficient he is and you won't be disappointed with his work.
Tom was an amazing handyman. We had originally hired him to fence in our backyard for our puppy and were so thrilled with his work we hired him to finish our basement. First and foremost, Tom was very trustworthy. We gave him a key and he completed the basement while we were at work. We never had to worry about anything going wrong as Tom worked very efficiently and gave us lots of updates and was in constant communication. We found him very professional and his work was very clean. He also didn t mind a crazy puppy in the house while he worked. We did find the sub-contracted mudders to not have the same work ethic or quality for workmanship as Tom. However, they did keep us on budget so a little extra mess was fine. We would recommend Goodfellow Handyman Service to anyone looking.
We are very satisfied with the fence that Tom built for us. Everything was completed on time and within pre-agreed budget. When Tom found out that we have a disabled son, he installed gates safety features to keep our kid safe and sound. We are very pleased with the work Tom conducted for us.
Vadim and Olga.
There were some delays, but the work was completed and the quality was good. Service was very courteous. I would use Goodfellow Renovations and Handyman Service again.
We would certainly employ Tom Goodfellow in the future.
Tom was a true professional in every way. From start to finish our neighbourhood fencing job was completed with extreme attention to detail. Tom was prompt, friendly and genuinely intersted in making sure all of his customers were happy. He was also very reasonably priced. We look forward to using him again in the future and would recommend him for any job large or small!
It is with pleasure that I am able to write a review in regards to Tom Goodfellows workmanship and overall performance. When quoting on building my deck / pergola, he provided me with various options and never hesitated in implementing / listening to suggestions or changes that I may have had. Tom built my deck / pergola in a timely fashion with no disruptions to me or my family. After the completion of the job, Tom not only cleaned up (very little) of what was left from the building of the deck but also some items that were on the property prior to his arrival.
I would not hesitate in recommending Tom to others and I'm already anticipating in having him back to build my arbour. He has gone beyond the call of duty and has exceed my expectations.
Tom did quite a few things for us: Installed backsplash, 5 light fixtures, changed our outlets, painted 2 rooms, plumbing and brought up our electric outlets to be higher for our wall-mounted TVs. He was extremely clean and meticulous with his work and very honest. I would not hesitate to have him do more work for us and recommend him to others.
Tom did the bathroom wallpaper stripping when no one else would. The garden work and sanding painting etc. of the kitchen counters was done on 3 separate evenings while I was on vacation so he also watered the hanging baskets and brought in the mail. He was thoughtful enough to leave on the porch light in case it was dark when I returned home.
Tom has completed a number of different jobs around my home, from painting to plumbing to electrical work. I have always found him to be fair and honest in his charges, extremely clean while working and well informed. He explains what he is doing and why and will also say if he feels that he is not qualified to tackle a particular job.
I have no hesitation recommending him.
Very pleased with this handyman's work and will continue to use him for any home repairs and/ or maintenance. He is extremely knowledgeable and versatile when it comes to troubleshooting and fixing problems that arise in the upkeep and maintenance of home ownership. Tom consistently provided a variety of options dependent upon my budget and I highly respect and trust his advice. I recommend him without any reservations whatsoever.
