"Ratner did an excellent job in all of the remodeling work that was done on our home. He replaced out 23 windows in our 1950 vintage house. He also took a standing outbuilding and turned it into a game room with climate controlled storage. Then he applied sealant to the roof to help control heat from the sun. He was reasonable, efficient and paid great attention to detail. Charges are based on days worked and the cost of materials. I give his work 5 stars and an A+"

Steve did a wonderful job in undertaking some much needed renovations to our property. He was very professional in his overall approach and adapted to changes made as the job progressed. Steve thoroughly explained the job details and offered suggestions and creative ideas along the way. Overall, we were impressed with Steve’s honesty and committed work ethic, not to mention the quality of the work performed. The finished product was more than we envisioned and we would highly recommend his services to others.

Steven Ratner’s crew did an excellent job of removing our old, large deck and replace it with a new one. It was a difficult job because of elevation limitations. They are tidy workers; and left all of the work site very clean at completion. The job was fairly priced, and the work quality seemed excellent. It's a pleasure to have worked with them.

"Refreshingly honest, trustworthy and fastidious. Quality workmanship. Steve writes a contract so that both parties know what to expect. He doesn't ask for final payment until the work is done and he knows you're satisfied. Licensed and insured. Steve has done two tiling jobs and installed a mantel piece around my fireplace. I will definitely use him again and recommend him to my friends."

- Stephen Rothstein

"I first hired Steve to fix a piece of broken furniture, and he pointed out some of the inherent weaknesses of the structure that I had noticed when I first got it, and came up with a plan to fix it. So when I wanted to make some ADA upgrades to my home, I called Steve back and could not be happier with the job. He contacted my landlords to make sure he had permission to make the structural changes, checked our local building codes to make sure everything was within code, and got everything done quickly and cleanly. I definitely plan to call back for my next home improvement job." -  Hank Young

"When we bought an older home, I contacted several contractors for estimates. Handyman2Hire was one of them. From the day Steve walked through the door, he was and has been very helpful. The other contractor's I met with arrived, looked at the jobs to do, told me they would get back in a week and disappeared for more than a week. Steve, on the other hand, after we had walked through the house and he saw what was needed, immediately began the job of helping to rebuild our home. He gave pointers, made suggestions, and listened to our needs. Steve was in contact with me every day, sometimes more than once and met me back at the house several times (we kept adding things to do!). He supplied his estimates as we went along, not leaving me in the dark until the final estimate arrived. I was very impressed with the "hand holding" he gave us even before he was hired! His attitude, his work ethic (he was here every morning for a month at 8:00 a.m. and on several occasions worked until after dark as we had a move in date), and his experience helped us to put this house back together. And, although he was not certified to do the plumbing and electrical, he oversaw it all for me. We had a lot of unforeseen problems creep up and Steve never once backed away. He was right there in the thick of it all. And, we are not quite though, but we are getting there. We still have a shed to paint, kitchen cabinet doors to install (I refinished the cabinets after Steve gave me great pointers and guided me through the process), more quarter round to put down and, by the time Steve returns next week, there will be another job, I'm sure We are very, very pleased with the work. Steve's work is excellent. He is very meticulous and he thinks things through. And, researches if he doesn't know the answer. He's very calming for the homeowner because there isn't anything he can't figure out or show you what to buy from his iphone"
