Being less-than-handy when it comes to home repairs/renovations, we'd like to get some quotes to have recessed medicine cabinets installed and some tile flooring laid. Does anyone have any good general handyman services that they could recommend?

I found this one after doing a quick Google search - Handyman Matters - Sterling, VA - Accept Nothing Less (http://www.handymanmatters.com/location.asp?locID=63 - broken link) - has anyone used them before?

I always feel overwhelmed when looking for these types of folks - there are soooo many too choose from, and I have no idea where to start!

Thanks!

I was brought up in this type of business with my parents doing this type of work. The important thing you need to do is ask your friends, family and neighbors who they use. IMO word of mouth (word of keyboard) is one of the best and safest ways of finding someone you like and can trust.

We had some work done in the bottom floor of our TH a few months ago by S&D Improvements in Alexandria and we were very happy with the outcome. They built a closet, laid porcelain tiles and did some painting. Sam was very helpful in the planning process and the guys showed up when they said they would, kept the area clean and were great to work with. We were extremely happy and I would not hesitate recommending them. Their contact info is:

SDImprovements@gmail.com

Here is a link to a sticky I commented in after the work was complete.
