Winston Simpson 203 5896044 🙂
203 510 4450 John – Small Jobs Guy.
He advertises on telegraph poles locally. I had a job that required reattaching a metal ladder from fire escape to roof, involving among other things making a custom bracket. At the same time he fixed a plumbing problem and drilled out a frozen bolt to reattach one end of the bannister to the roof that I hadn’t even known needed fixing. Also greatly improved window screen attachment mechanism that I had given up on. Cost of materials and at least four hours of work in all, counting going to Lowe’s for said materials. Charged $109. Francie and I found him excellent in every way. Full time handyman may not be his cup of tea, but he’s worth adding to your list for small jobs. And his prices seem more than modest. One job. One experience of his work. So I can’t claim a long relationship. But I’ll certainly hire him again.

Also, I am 185 lbs in case anyone is worried about their walker/sitter being able to handle their large dog. Please send my information along to anyone that might need it.
