Very professional service. Tracy is very kind and does the job at a very reasonable price. He fixed our sliding closet door and even made it better than it was before. I recommend his service to anyone who’s looking for a handyman that provides services at a reasonable price.

I am very grateful for Mr.Smith professional job to help me fix my dryer vent pipe. Which has been a very big concern for me every time when I used the dryer. Now, no any more. I can see the steam completely outside, and also the smell. I had Mr.Smith helped me couple of times -stairs repairs, deck repairs, window repairs. He always really spent time and made the work done the best way !So the satisfaction was really A+ !! Very glad to have him in our region.

The owner is very pleasant and honest. Couldn't help me with my present job request but will certainly keep him in mind for any future projects that are less complicated.

After having been let down at the last minute, on Easter week-end, by the contractor who was in charge of installing new vinyl rolls and baseboards in my basement because it was not perfectly levelled, I searched the internet and called Mr. Trace Smith at South Shore Handyman to find out if he could manage this installation. After having agreed on a quote, Trace came on Easter Monday to start the work and I must say that I am extremely pleased with the results as my uneven floor was really a challenge !! Thank you so much again for having done such a great job Trace ! You are a reliable, competent and very nice straight person and you even helped me and my husband getting rid of a big branch that fell off my tree during that recent ice storm. I strongly recommend South Shore Handyman's services. Trace's quote will be clear and he will make sure that you will receive his best work.

Update 2023 ! Nouveau chantier avec Trace >> transformer 4 garde-robes séparées pour les réunir en un walk-in ! Trace nous a super bien conseillés, a abattu les cloisons, réparé les sols, remonté et peints les murs. Protection et propreté du chantier, exécution soignée et réfléchie ! Pour la seconde fois, nous sommes hyper satisfaits du travail accompli par Trace +++++ ! ------ Avril 2022 : Changement de la toiture (asphalt shingles) d’un abri de jardin >> Trace est un professionnel méticuleux, fiable et sérieux, parfaitement à son affaire et a fait un ouvrage de grande qualité. Chantier nettoyé et travail impeccable de A à Z. Totalement satisfaits, aucune hésitation à avoir !

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 )
