Dear Mr. Vickers,

Enclosed is the payment of which I owe for the recent work done at my home. I wanted to say how much I appreciated the work that was done, especially on the porch and shed. I know it was hot those days, but Mr. Gordon kept on working. I am thankful to the Lord that I was able to get this done at this time and thankful to you for sending the right workers. I am very pleased with all the work that was done, especially on the shed. Again, thank you for the help; I appreciated it and the workers as well. By the way, my daughter came by and was very happy with everything as well.

Sincerely,

Shirley Johnson

 

Dear Vic and Walt,
 
Thank you for the work you did on my house! I really appreciate how responsive you’ve been and how quickly you were able to do all the work! I especially wanted to hank you for going above and beyond while fixing the back door. I didn’t realize it had gotten that bad, and because you took the extra step, I don’t have to worry about it.
 
Thank You!

I contacted them through email asking for an estimate on two different projects. They responded promptly. Both Gerald and Daniel are great guys. They are nice, polite and very experienced. They explained to me patiently how they are planning to do and answered all my questions. I received their estimates days later and decided to let them do the drainage because their price is the best compared to the other contractors that I’d contacted. They finished the work as planned and seems the flooding issue has been resolved! It has rained two times and that area seems good. Overall,  it is a good experience with Handymen R us. The communication with Vic and others has been smooth. They are professional and easy to work with. I’m very satisfied with the work they have done. The river stone looks very neat and I love this idea Daniel suggested! I will definitely use their service again if there is something coming up in the future.

This was a big job and we had several estimates, 1 company called back to say it was to big for his crew.  This wasn’t the cheapest estimate that we received but it was the most detailed and understandable for us the laymen to understand.  Also Vic Vickers was the most personable gentleman when he came out to do the estimate.. He made us very comfortable and reassured us that the job wasn’t unattainable like one of the contractors did. 

They gave us a one month estimate for completion, and they were right on the money.  There were always a few questions that we had about a certain thing they were doing and they always explained completely and patiently.  The crews who arrived were mannerly and they were very professional.  The scraping of the popcorn ceilings was the messiest of all the work that was done,  they taped and covered everything  to help with the mess. That was the hardest part of the whole project, and they tried to clean up as much as possible but it was a complete mess and just walking on the floors stirred up the dust from that stuff. This process was like moving, I had to pack up everything and move it into our garage. 

We had a problem with the retexture of the ceilings, I wasn’t happy with the final outcome after everything was painted and we talked with Billy. He assured us that they would take care of it and they did.  The second time it turned out great and we are very happy with the whole outcome.. The wood flooring looks amazing and the total effect of all the work is so beautiful that it left me speechless.  I love all that they did and Billy even gave us some pointers on replacing some lighting in our kitchen with LED can light replacements, they were perfect and it made a big difference.

It feels like a new house and I am grateful to Handymen R us for making me love my home finally..

We are getting ready to do the other half of the house which entails 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.  Are definitely using Handymen R Us !  Enjoyed the experience as much as could be possible for a remodel…

“Good morning, Vic:
 
Al and his assistant Trevor just finished installing my new bookcase counter.
 
Those two young men are by far the most skillful and respectful repairmen to ever enter my home. They treated my home as their home, honored my every request, called before they came, cleaned up exceptionally well after they were done, not to mention did a masterful job of repairing my termite-damaged bookcase–honestly, they exemplified the very best in conduct and skill for repairmen of every sort.”

“My husband Drew and I have used Handymen ‘R’ Us for more than fifteen years.  Their work is professional and long-lasting. They provide an estimate before the work is started and it doesn’t change.  Payment is not expected until the task is completed satisfactorily.  I’ve never hesitated to let the workmen in my house, even when I was gone”.  Linda Edmondson

 

“Vic’s fantastic Handymen built a beautiful custom iron gate & installed a stockade fence at our new home in Lincoln Terrace. They made sure our 3 Big Baby Dogs were safe & secure during the fence fabrication & then installed it perfectly! Now our home looks beautiful, complete & secure, while our dogs have a stylishly protected yard all thanks to Vic & his amazing craftsmen. It has been our pleasure to work with them & we highly recommend their handy-work!”

Hi Mr. Vickers.  Just wanted you to know that the work in my kitchen has been completed, and I am very pleased with the results.   I want to say how hard Richard and Kenny worked yesterday to put in my backsplash and faucett.   They started work at 9:00 in the morning, and they finished up around 9:00 at night. They worked very hard, and I was very pleased with their work.   As I am sure they told you, there was a problem with the plumbing for my faucett and they stayed until they figured it out and fixed it.   They were persistant and determined to finish the job, and they did.  They both were awesome!   I would definately use either or both of them again for other projects.   They were very polite and professional, and I appreciated all of their hard work!So, what is the procedure for getting you paid for the work in my kitchen?   Let me know what the procedure is and I will get you paid ASAP.   Thanks again for working with me and for your patience with all my questions and concerns.  I appreciate it! Gloria

“Thank you for such a great job. God always puts his people together in a time of need. I have older friends that need work done by someone they can trust. I will highly recommend you. Thanks again.”

“My husband had total hip replacement surgery and the hospital would not release him until we had a ramp or hand rails at our home. Our only son is out of state serving active duty with the US Air Force and I had no idea who to call or what to do. I said a short prayer before I called Handymen R Us and knew I would find an answer. I called on Tuesday morning and spoke with Vic Vickers. He was compassionate and gave me clear options of what could be done. Within 30 minutes Jacob was at my home taking measurements and I had a firm quote within 45 minutes of my phone call. The ramp was completed when I came home with my husband the next day on Wednesday!  Handymen R Us did what they said they would do, in the time limit we had agreed on and at the price they had quoted me. A company is only as good as their word. It is a joy to have found a company that I trust and can recommend to my friends.” Pam Stottman

“Vic, I just want you to know how pleased we are of the remodeling job. We have had several compliments already. I like all of it, but I think I like the tile backsplash best of all. Thanks to you and all your hard work, you have a very pleased customer.”

Wanda and JT

“Vic, I appreciate your fairness and honesty so much. You have always treated me fairly and always been good at your word. Being a single woman, I really appreciate you. I know I can call on you anytime and be treated with respect and honesty.

Thank you so much,”

Jean Bevers

“I asked Handymen R Us to give me an estimate and then we scheduled a date for work. There was no problem scheduling. Other fencing companies I called didn’t even bother to call me back. It is always nice to interact with a business working on your property that is curtious, pleasant, and respectful. All of the men I interacted with were just that. They did not even mind me hanging around while they worked. To complete the work the day after they set the poles they even worked in the rain. I had already purchased the panels and poles. This was not a problem for the crew. The quality of work this company does is fabulous and the interaction with all working on the project was great. I would certainly use this company again” Kim

“Thank you so much Vic. I’m going over this morning to look again now that its complete.
 Looks really good – love the porch railings
 Thanks again”
 Signed Barbara

“I used Handymen R Us to replace exterior siding that was water damaged. They primed both sides instead of just one. Very polite and quick. The paint I bought didn’t exactly match because the existing paint was now sun bleached, but he feathered into the old paint so it doesn’t show. He caulked where the builder didn’t. I’m very happy with the work, in fact, I got more than my money’s worth.” Denise
 

” I requested a quote from several other vendors before I was able to get anybody to come out. Vic was prompt, personable and professional. I would recommend the company and their work. The final price was right on the original estimate and I got exactly what I paid for.” Robin

Thank you for the recent service! Your payment went out today in the mail.
 
We  really enjoyed the repair guy you had fix up our bath leak. He is very good at helping your customer save money on repair parts. He was very good at letting us know what he was doing and why. I would love to use your company again if the service stays this way. He was a blessing  and thank you so much for helping my stress level when I called. I just knew we were in for a very large bill and this was a wonderful surprise!
 
God bless you for charging us a fair price..
 
IF ALL YOU HAVE IS FAITH, LOVE AND HOPE, THATS
 ALL YOU WILL EVER NEED
HAVE A BLESSED DAY,
 NINA

“From start to finish, I was overwhelmed with the professionalism that I encountered with this company. I have found that it is rare to find a construction company that does such a great job of taking care of the customer’s needs. I had gotten four bids for this deck before I found this company on Angie’s List and was delighted that I found these guys before committing to one of these other companies. I dealt with two different people on this project, Vic and Billy. Billy came out to estimate the job and was more than happy to work with me on scheduling a time to meet me. He was very professional and extremely helpful. He always showed up on time and he actually completed the project quicker than what he thought it would be completed. The one problem that we had was that the Call-before-you-dig service (OKIE B-4 You Dig) did not show up when they said they would, so construction didn’t begin on the day that it was supposed to. I had absolutely no problem with this as it was completely out of everyone’s control. Even after this minor setback, the job was completed early and with exceptional quality. I am very impressed with these guys and will definitely recommend them to my friends and use them in the future for any other projects (which are many) that I have. Just remember, they will do anything except roofing.

New light fixtures installed.Master bathroom- Mostly gutted, with original double vanity base and vanity top being re-used, although with new faucets. Small, damaged, pre-fabricated corner shower was replaced with larger shower custom-designed to use all the floor space between the corner wall and whirlpool tub. Subflooring had been damaged under old shower, due to water leakage. This was replaced, then the new shower was built with 18″ porcelain tiles on the wall and decorative tile inlay. Again, the tile was extended to the ceiling and the shower floor was appropriately sloped with non-slip tile. An extra-tall glass wall and door were custom-made for shower. Old drop-in whirlpool tub was replaced with new one and new faucets, and it’s base was tiled to match shower.

Member Comments: 
“We are a military family, stationed out-of-state, who plan to eventually retire back to an older house we have in Midwest City. The original house was built in 1955, with a garage conversion done at a latter date (1960’s or 1970’s) and a master suite addition built in 1993. We had kept the house rented out for the last eleven years and it was in serious need of renovation, partly due to age, partly due to renter damage/neglect.
   Since we don’t live in the area, and my husband is currently deployed overseas, I needed to find an honest, good contractor who could handle all the extensive and varied work that needed to be done. Based on Angie’s List recommendations, I contacted Vic Vickers and arranged to meet him at the house last April to discuss the project. I was very impressed with Vic from the first and, as he assured me he could handle it all as a general contractor, I accepted his bid and didn’t interview anyone else. My renters moved out on June 30th and Vic’s guys began their work on July 5th, completing it on Sept. 2nd.
   Vic’s primary crew consisted of Jacob (crew leader) and Chance– two young men who I found to be absolutely wonderful. They were always friendly, cheerful, and personable. They are honest, hard working and polite. They worked on the project most weekdays for nine weeks. On the days they weren’t there, it was usually to do work for some of Vic’s other customers, as they are very much in demand. On days that they needed extra hands, they brought in additional guys. As other Angie’s List members have stated, they were very good to clean up the work site at the end of each day.
   My three children, two large dogs and myself stayed in the master suite while all the work was going on. The guys were really good about consulting me about everything, whether it was a problem that they had run into, or about details like where I wanted light fixtures placed. On the rare occasion that I found something done that I was less than satisfied with, they corrected it willingly and immediately. They offered some really good suggestions for some improvements and were very receptive to my own ideas. They were really tremendous and very knowledgable and skilled.
  Some of the work was subcontracted out like the fencing, the driveway and sidewalk, the hardwood floor repair and refinishing, most of the electrical, and the cabinetry and countertops. Vic uses excellent subcontractors. Vic’s own guys did all the demo, construction, plumbing (including installing the tankless hot water heater and whirlpool tub), tile work, wall and ceiling repair, doors, trim, hanging of light fixtures, wall texturing, etc. I have to mention that the extensive tile work was especially nice and Jacob has a real designer’s eye for it.
   Vic Vickers has proven himself to be a man of integrity and as knowledgable and honest as they come. I cannot say enough nice things about him and his crew! They turned my house around and made it into what is probably the nicest house in the entire neighborhood. The project by nature was stressful, but they did everything that could be done to reduce that stress and left me more than satisfied, feeling that I definitely got my money’s worth and that our home investment has been both preserved and improved.”
