Contact us today!

The short answer is no; the smaller the job, the better. While we don’t do the really big jobs, we do many little jobs. We can help fill in the details that are often overlooked in large renovations. Read on to learn more about the small jobs we do!


Yes! If you need a faucet replaced, a running toilet, or a small leak from the sink repaired, as long as it doesn’t require a licensed plumber, call us.


Yes! As long as it doesn’t require a licensed electrician, call us. If you have a broken switch, damaged outlet, or need a replacement light fixture or fan (up to 11′ 6″ high), call us. We can change old outlets to new child-safe (tamper resistant) ones or GFCI outlets. We also can replace your burned-out light bulbs (12’ ceilings max.) or upgrade your outdoor floodlights (15′ max height.)


Yes! We specialize in small jobs like hardware removal or installation. Painters often want hardware removed prior to painting; we can take it down and put it back up after your painting is done.


Every job is different; we have set prices for many services, but not all. It is best if we can see photos and a good description of your project before scheduling it. Keep in mind that there are often unforeseen things that can come up during work on a home project. Most pricing is done by the specific job and location rather than by the hour.


We provide free online estimates via phone, text, Facebook Messenger, and email based on the information you provide us. If an on-site estimate is warranted (or requested by you) before scheduling work, in most cases we charge a $75 to $99 minimum fee for this service.

We cover Athens, Cullman, Decatur, Hartselle, Huntsville, Madison, and Priceville, AL. We are based in Hartselle, AL, and try to keep about a 40-mile radius to best serve our clients by keeping our costs lower and turn-around time faster. We may make exceptions at times and drive farther. Contact us with a detailed description of the work to be done and your location.

Occasionally we can schedule you the same day. Typically we can schedule you within a few days or a week. It all depends on our workload. We like to focus on jobs that we can get done in a few hours or a day or two at most.

While we may not be the cheapest labor you can find, you will find that our work is very high quality. Phil takes pride in doing quality work with great attention to detail. This is not often found in home construction, as contractors often have to bang out homes quickly and quality is not often the most important aspect. The little details that can make a good home great are often missed. We are here to help with that.
