Norbert is great!  We recently built a townhome just outside of the loop and Norbert has helped us so much the last few months finishing mini projects for us.  He is our go to person when we need something done and we keep finding more projects for him to help us with!  Norbert added hardware to our kitchen and bathroom cabinets, patched drywall, installed several light fixtures and LED mirrors, put together furniture, hung pictures/mirrors and fixed our railing on the stairs to name just a few items!  His company also put tile and trim in a closet that our builder left unfinished, and it looks amazing!  Norbert is prompt (usually early!), has great communication skills and goes above and beyond to offer his expertise.  We highly recommend Norbert and his company!

Chicago Handy installed a kitchen backsplash in my home, and I couldn't be more happy with the results.  The finished product looks even better than I imagined it would.  Arek (and another gentleman, unfortunately did not get his name) did a wonderful job, and Norbert was a pleasure to work with through the initial planning, quoting, and scheduling processes.  Could not recommend them enough.

I finally found someone I can rely on to help with different small projects around the house. Norbert is very responsive and has a great team of people with knowledge in different areas. So far I had under counter lights and a new kitchen backsplash installed. Next is a plumber stopping by for another project.Charges have been quite reasonable. Everyone who has come by has been prompt, professional, hardworking, and cleaned up after they were done.I'm very happy I found Norbert and his team. More...

Norbert's team came to install a tile backsplash on in my kitchen. From my first contact with Norbert to the finished product, it was an amazing experience working with his team. Norbert was very communicative, responsive, and clear about what he needed from me and what his team would provide. His guys were timely, took extra precautions to keep my space clean with plastic and tarp on all exposed surfaces, and did great work. I'm very pleased with the outcome and will be using Chicago Handy for my future projects! More...

I am impressed by Norbert and his team. It wasn't him that came to our place but his guy Marek. I will admit I had some qualms about this before the job, but walked away extremely satisfied with Marek's work, skill and most important of all, integrity. Ton of people out there that are skilled but quite the opposite when it comes to integrity. We had him working on multiple small jobs -- bathroom tile and grout work, water damage under the kitchen-sink, faucet replacement, etc. And Marek had ideas and in some cases solutions ready for everything. The pre-job communication: this was generally good. There was a minor goof-up. Norbert promised a date, but 3 days before the intended date, for some reason they couldn't make that date. We were upset initially but sh!t happens sometimes so we accepted a new date. This is certainly not a reason enough to give these guys anything less than a 5-star rating.The job: as described above -- an extraordinary experience.Post-job: we were given a clear understanding of all the expenses. Pricing was right at the mean of pricing range I have seen, having worked with other handymen in the past (not too cheap, but not expensive at all)In summary, job well done and happy customers.

We have worked with Norbert and his team on three different projects including small painting jobs, drywall repair, and other odd jobs. Norbert has been very easy to work with, responds to text messages, communicates clearly, and is straightforward with his estimates. His techs Charlie and Mark have done very high quality work for us, effeciently and at a fair price. We have been pleased every time. Would definitely recommend Norbert and his crew to anyone.

Norbert was excellent from the start. He immediately responded to my email inquiry, set a date and time and stuck with it. He was 10 mins early to the appointment, totally professional, clean (had a change of shoes for interior of my home) and laid down tarps to avoid making a mess. He installed a new lazy susan (which I purchased myself) in my kitchen cabinet. The shelving I purchased was not a perfect fit for the space allotted but he was smart and figured out a solution that worked and had additional materials on hand to get it done. He finished the job in a timely manner and didn't waste any time. I will definitely use him again for future projects. More...

Norbert with Chicago Handy was excellent for the glass subway tile backsplash install in my kitchen! He was quick to respond when I reached out for a quote, he gave a very reasonable quote for the job and had his tech Arek scheduled to my place ASAP. I had purchased the tile and grout previous to the job, but Arek did a great job showing up early (much appreciated) before I left for work to get set up and make sure the tile was installed as I had envisioned it. Arek was extremely polite and professional, and brought sheets/tarps to cover my island, my couch, my walls, etc and left it very clean when I came home from work that day. Would highly recommend Norbert and his team Arek for anyone's tile needs! (Lighting in the after pictures don't do it justice) More...

Norbert responded almost immediately to my inquiry and set up a service appointment for 2 days later. He sent Mark, who did a great job. Mark was very nice, knowledgeable, and efficient. He changed a Lutron dimmer switch (which he shopped for in advance-hooray!!) and fixed a leaking laundry tub faucet which I thought needed to be replaced. He had brought a new faucet, just in case. I would highly recommend this company! More...

Chicago Handy is an excellent resource for home repairs and general upkeep.  Norbert came to our house in advance of our appointment to assess the various projects we had, record them accordingly, provide us w/ an estimate and schedule a date/time.  His technician arrived on time, was incredibly professional/friendly/trustworthy/honest and very talented.  Some projects his tech completed for us:  Adjusting our front door that had shifted during settling, caulking, fixing a bathroom vanity and power washing our deck and outdoor furniture.  Chicago Handy uses modern technology to accept payment (Venmo or Zelle) which is so convenient.   Could not recommend Chicago Handy more for any repairs you may have.   A+++ More...

Norbert and his contractor were both outstanding! If you're looking for a handyman/contractor service for general fixes around the house like drywall work (sanding, sparkling, painting), appliance installation, grout and calking work, etc. I highly recommend Chicago Handy. Norbert and his contractor Charlie were highly responsive, very professional, and went above and beyond on the job and did more work than I even anticipated. They went the extra mile and for the right price. Can't say enough good things about these guys. More...

I recently moved to the West Loop and found closet bi-fold doors constantly coming off the tracks. I contacted Norbert after reading the great reviews and they were true! !!  Mark came out to my condo yesterday and did an amazing job! He was punctual (even called to see if I'd be home earlier), professional, very meticulous and completed work on the doors in less than 1 hour (he even checked all of them for me). For a single woman who knows nothing about home repairs, I will definitely use their services in the future.  Highly recommend without any reservations! More...

Norbert did an excellent job with my new condo that had many issues. He  came prepared and began working on my list immediately. I was very surprised how much we got done on that first visit! We then reviewed other things in the home that needed done and made another list. Again he came prepared, had already shopped for the things he needed. He charges by the hour and works very fast and efficiently. He also cleans up after himself entirely. I am so pleased with the work!!! More...

I was looking to get a tile backsplash installed in the kitchen and Chicago Handy is definitely the way to go. I reached out to Norbert and he was extremely helpful. We exchanged a few emails and got the install done in about a week. The technician (Arek and his dad) were great. They showed up early (which is great!) and got straight to work. We discussed in design and he provided his recommendation as well. Once we decided, he went straight to work. I think the install took about 2 hours and it was beautifully done. My kitchen looks much brighter with the subway tile I selected and I'm glad I went with Chicago Handy. I would highly recommend them and will be keeping them in mind for future projects! More...

6/2018- Norbert did a great job with caulking in my bathroom and kitchen, replacing a smoke alarm, and fixing a broken drawer. He arrived on time and was very neat the entire time he was working.

We had an excellent experience with Norbert. He responded to our emails quickly, repaired a wide range of projects (e.g. lighting, plumbing, appliances, etc.) and took care of everything from start-to-finish (e.g. tools, clean-up, etc.).We especially appreciate how efficient he was. When we booked the appointment, he requested photos of certain projects so he could arrive with a clear solution for each project AND had the right tools/materials already prepared. He didn't charge us for the pre-work/preparation, only the time he was onsite, so his fee was incredibly reasonable compared to other handyman. More...

I have been looking for help installing a kitchen backsplash for a year and I am SO happy that I found Chicago Handy. First, his prices are more than reasonable. Second, he is extremely communicative, and let me know exactly what type of materials he would bring, what I needed to provide. He was super timely, and got right to work and did a phenomenal job.

These guys are wonderful--efficient, timely, affordable and friendly. Norbert makes things as easy as possible, starting with the initial email exchange when he asks for a few phone pics to gauge the scope of the work. We've hired Chicago Handy twice for a range of small issues in our condo: from repairing water damage in our ceiling (far less extensive/costly than we feared), to replacing a leaky faucet and matching long-lost wall paint colors and repairing drywall.

Excellent service! I recently moved and the movers did not assemble my bed. When I spoke with Norbert, he asked me specific questions about what pieces there were and if I had the bolts that were used originally. When he did come out, he was actually EARLY. It was during the work day, so I was extremely impressed by him being respectful of my time. He came in with all of the necessary tools. I was even missing a piece and he made everything work.
