Welcome to Handyman Heroes
Handyman Heroes is a multi-capability handyman business servicing North Central, Upper Cape Cod, and the South Coast of Massachusetts. Our roots are in support of homeowners with small home maintenance-type projects — the kind jobs most established contractors won’t return your telephone call about — and that many property owners lack the expertise (or time) to do themselves. But our services extent to the commercial world, where we address everything from cosmetic to structural repairs.
We, Handyman Heroes, are a family owned, local (non-franchise, unaffiliated with “copy-cats” who “borrow” our name). Our business was founded in 2002 and has grown considerably during the past 22 years. We provide a full spectrum of services ranging from minor repairs, through major home renovations (bathroom and kitchen remodels, deck building & repair, as well as fire & water rehab). In 2006 we expanded our services to include a housekeeping capability (Housekeeper Heroes, which we're in the process of divesting) that cleans homes and tackles custom projects such as home organization, window washing, laundry as well as post-construction cleaning. And, we have a lot of expertise working with seniors in their homes.
Our company fills a huge gap in the local service economy, has been written up in the regional press (Townsend Times, Groton Landmark, Harvard Hillside Press, Ayer Public Spirit, Pepperell Free Press, and Shirley Oracle), and had been enthusiastically embraced by local homeowners, realtors, and related businesses.
We service a broad array of residential & commercial customer needs. Our residential customers know that “No job is too small for us” (though we do have a minimum charge).
Known primarily for our services to homeowners, we have a rapidly growing segment of business in the retail property maintenance field, where we boast numerous national firms as steady customers. We have done everything for them from setting up retail displays for Sony Digital Cameras, and Wireless Zone cellular telephone stores, to repairing a ceiling for Radio Shack, a floor for Payless Shoes, custom manufacturing some cabinetry for Pier One Imports, and repairing the aftermath of a burglary at a Family Dollar Store. Some of the other companies we’ve successfully completed project for include: Wal-Mart, Staples, FedEx, Brooks Drug, Whitehall Jewelers, Famous Footwear, Belden Jewelers, Lindt Chocolate, Verizon Wireless, and T-Mobile.
A closely related segment of our business is our support of local builders. We have performed “punch-list” type projects for the largest developer of condominiums in central Massachusetts. Our craftsmen can handle these small, highly varied projects more cost effectively (in many cases) than the builder’s own staff.
We’ve also assumed responsibility for the maintenance of several condominium complexes after their builder’s warranties have expired. Some of these complexes have included: Shaker Village in Lancaster, Old Schoolhouse Village in Ayer, and Mallorie Meadows in Leominster. We’ve done everything from replacing faulty plumbing to maintaining their gutters & dryer vents.
We are a major provider of services in the elder care community, with well known agencies such as Old Colony Elder Services, and Montachusett Home Care Corporation as significant clients. We have installed everything from massive code-compliant handicapped ramps, to ADA-Compliant grab-bars, hand-held showers, and related assisted living device implementations for their client base. Our reputation is so solid that a substantial number of the agencies’ employees have hired us address project in their own homes.
