Goodman to the Rescue is an old fashioned handyman service for the modern world.

I specialize in small jobs, the kind that are a bit too complex or specialized for the average home or business owner, but don't require a general contractor and large crew. I can take care of pretty much every common household issue, and help you add those finishing touches that make a house feel like a home.

Estimates are always free. I'm happy to recommend reliable people for jobs I don't do myself, and I always follow up with the customer afterward, to make sure the job was completed to your satisfaction. If there's a service or type of repair you don't see listed, feel free to ask.

Here's a little gallery of photos taken on projects.

Do Good! is a program that helps people and families dealing with end-of-life issues. Specifically, I donate up to $500 in time and materials doing handyman work in preparation for hospice care. Work may include installing grab bars in the shower and toilet areas, moving furniture to make room for a hospital bed, general organization and cleaning, and anything else that will make the transition home more comfortable. I dedicate this work to my late father, Don Goodman, whose memory inspires me to serve others. If you have a loved one in need or are confronting end-of-life issues yourself, please be in touch.
