Trace came over to secure the railing on an indoor staircase that was a little loose. We were both hoping it would be a small job, the railing simply in need of tightening, but fate had more in store... It turned out the railing needed a butterfly screw, but one that was especially long. Trace diagnosed the issue, spent perhaps an hour or more on the project, and never hesitated to redo work if he felt it could be improved. I think he spent more time on my project than he had expected, but he didn't rush. I admire Trace's professionalism, his work ethic, and his persistence. He was also in good spirits, smiling and saying hello to my baby who played nearby. We definitely have more projects lined up in the future for Trace. The South Shore is lucky to have him!

We've had the opportunity to hire Trace to paint our house, repair our fence and gate and disassemble large, heavy furniture and remove it. Courteous, professional, worth every penny and he gets the job right the first time. We highly recommend him.

I had several jobs to do at my house that was too big for me or too small to ask to a big company. SSHandyman was the perfect choice for me. He did an incredible job and leave the place clean, was very nice and polite, and fast. I definitly recommand if you have a lot of small jobs to do at your house, and don t know who to call. Definitly will call again for some more ( there is always something to do in a house )

I have been wanting to do my front deck for a while now but the quotes I was getting were absurdly expensive. I asked Trace if he was interested in doing it, he mentioned to me it would be his first time doing it for a customer but I was confident he would be able to pull it off. Indeed he did a very good job here, and even when things weren't perfect he dismantled some parts and redid them again at no extra cost! 5 stars from me.

Mr. Trace Smith's service is excellent. He is honest, punctual, his invoicing is transparent, his work is very detailed and clean. Definitely recommended! Trace took care of many things in my home: fixing drywall, priming/painting walls, patching gaps in my entrance brick steps, fixing a stuck drain plug, solidifying my patio stairs, re-caulking kitchen and bathroom counters, strengthening my bathroom vanity, etc.. He even took the time to teach me tips and tricks so I can do things myself in the future.
