WHO WE ARE
Scotty’s Contracting & Handyman Services
Our goal is to provide you with a quick, affordable, and convenient source for all of your handyman, plumbing, home maintenance, and renovation needs. We can do full bathroom and kitchen remodels but also take care of smaller jobs like that “Honey Do” list that seems to grow but never gets completed.
Whether it’s a DIY project that isn’t going as planned or is turning out to be more difficult than you thought or it’s a small job that you don’t want to call a contractor for, I can help!
I take great pride in completing a job to the customer’s satisfaction. There is no better feeling than leaving a job knowing that I have taken care of a problem or need for someone.

“Scott removed a number of curtain rods from the walls all around our home – he patched the holes then returned a few days later to sand and paint. The whole interaction was great – he responded promptly to my messages, gave a clear estimate, arrived on time, and worked quickly and neatly. After the first day, I asked him to hang a few large framed pieces on the wall and the price for the additional work was very reasonable. He even entertained my curious 3 year old’s constant (no really, constant) stream of conversation with tons of patience. The walls look perfect- no sign of the repairs! And the art is hung exactly as I requested. I would certainly work with him again.”

“Scott was very responsive, punctual, courteous, professional and reasonably priced. I would recommend his service to anyone! Thanks Scott!”
– Silvia M. –
“My father recently had a stroke. After being released from the rehab facility, we decided that it would be best for him to move in with us. We needed grab bars installed throughout the house. After receiving several bids, I decided to go with Scott. He was able to come out within a couple of days and installed the grab bars. After he had finished, he was able to take care of the dripping kitchen faucet and a leaky shower valve as well.
I was extremely satisfied with Scott and the work he did. He was prompt, polite, and very helpful. I would definitely recommend him and will use him again in the future.”
– Patricia E. –
“I am absolutely delighted! I’m not going to lie – I am probably the worst person when doing DIY projects: I can have all the “great ideas” in the world, but NO IDEA how to pull them off. That’s where Scott stepped right in! Scott mounted my mirror quickly and professionally with a minimum of fuss. He cautiously and accurately centered and leveled the mirror framing. He even helped me out with a wiring issue for the mirror lights. His work is of the highest quality and he provided great value for the quote. To top it off, he was very friendly and had great availability. I will 100% use him the next time I have a project around the house! Thanks again, Scott!”

"Very Helpful & Responsive"
“Scott did a great job helping us install a pet door that included a bit of wall repair. Very helpful and responsive. We will certainly ask for Scott’s help with future projects!”
– Heidi H. –
“Scott did a great job hanging some things for me. We were struggling to get a pot rack installed securely on a tricky wall, and Scott was able to come within a few days, problem-solve what was giving me trouble, and get everything done in a very neat and professional way. He showed up right on time and I thought his work was priced very reasonably. I’ll definitely be reaching out to him again next time I need some work done.”
– Kate C. –
“I’m very pleased! Scott mounted several framed photos for me and set up a bed frame. He is meticulous about completing the project and doing it well. His pricing is also quite fair and reasonable. I highly recommend him.”
– Sadra J. –
“The work turned out to be more challenging than expected because I had misdiagnosed what needed to be done. This pro stayed twice as long as estimated, to make sure the job was completed to his own satisfaction.”
– Betty A. –
“I highly recommend Scott if you’re in the market for a handyman. He’s professional and has a winning personality. It was a pleasure to do business with him.”

"Would Hire Again"
“Scott was great! We would definitely hire him again for our next project!”
– Nancy D. –
“Scott was terrific. My wife and I are rather unhandy and we had a fence that had gotten unmoored from its base. Scott offered a very reasonable quote for this straightforward project, was responsive and finished the work promptly. He even took a look at the rest of our fence and corrected a few flaws at his own initiative.
Very good value for excellent work. He’s also very friendly. Would hire again.”
– Jofi J. –
“Quoted price in initial bid, which I appreciated. Very responsive and available. Tenant reported a job well done. Will def use in the future!”
– Julie M. –

– Sloane S. –
"I Would Definitely Hire Scott Again!"
“Scott was great! Super nice guy, really helped us with our plumbing issues and provided guidance on how we can improve the problem ourselves in the future. He even went to the hardware store for us while here and befriended our big goofy dog. I would definitely hire Scott again!”

"I Will Use Him Again"
“My father recently had a stroke and we decided to have him move in with us rather than put him in a facility. We needed grab bars installed throughout the house. I placed a request on thumbtack and after receiving a few quotes, decided to go with Scott from Quick Fixes Handyman Services. He showed up on time and had the grab bars installed in just over an hour. We had agreed on 2 hours for the bid. With the extra time Scott was able to fix the kitchen faucet and a leaky valve in the shower. I was very impressed with work he did and the willingness to make sure I was satisfied. I would highly recommend Scott and will use him again in the future.”
– Brad D. –
"He Did A Great Job"
“I hired Scott to hang lights in my backyard. He did a great job with the lights.
I also asked him to also put up two towel racks in my bathroom. To be fair, initially I asked for one, and later changed it to two. He only did the one because he ran out of time.”
– Tahmeena V. –

"Did A Great Job"
“I needed a large mirror hung in my bedroom and had a new piece of IKEA furniture to put together. Neither my husband or I have the time/patience to do either.
Scott was recommended by a friend and his rate was reasonable so I gave him a shot. I called on a Thursday, he arrived on time on a Saturday afternoon and knocked out both projects in 2 hours. Scott was super professional and did a great job hanging the mirror and putting together our new dresser. We’ll definitely be using his services again.”

"Thank you Scott"
“Dear Scott, as I have shared with you, I have had a run in with bad contractors. Contra-actors / con-artists might have been more descriptive of who they were. Excuses have become their routine, their spoken words devoid of meaning. Dealing with them for the past 2 months, I seemed to have been living in an alternative universe unraveling around the edges.
Though this might have been a little project for you, the way you took care of it reflected the weight of your words, business ethos and time honored principles. As we are well aware a contractor’s worthiness is measured by the word he keep. So when I get lucky to find someone like you with integrity, reliability and someone who lives up to his commitments, my spirit soars and respect for humankind is restored!
Thank you Scott for undertaking this small project. I appreciate you and your YOU-ness!
Scott Shelton – General Contractor, Congratulations! I wish all the very best you richly deserve.”
