What my clients say about me:
“I had called many places to get estimates for flooring and paneling work in our 1920s-style bathroom. Most companies either wanted way too much money (because they wanted to do expensive whole makeovers) or wanted to fit such a “small” job in among their larger ones, so no set date was offered.
I was reading a neighborhood newsletter and noticed an ad for HomeProud Handyworks, and called Ken. I am so glad I did – He came out within a few days, talked with us about what we wanted done, and came up with a good estimate. Plus, he did a great job: getting the materials we chose (floor tiles, paneling, etc.), setting up times that were good for us, arriving when he said, checking with us on our input to the various decisions needed before going ahead … and all that in a friendly, casual manner that didn’t slow down anything!
Unlike many house projects, this very much started and ended when promised, and we felt we had made a great choice in contacting him. We feel that we made a friend in Ken and would definitely contact HomeProud Handyworks again!”
“Ken is great to work with! He shows up on time and lets you know right away if there are any changes needed on the construction schedule. He is great with our daughter and our pets. They love being named ‘employee of the week’. Ken stays on task and treats your home as if it were his own. High quality workmanship!”
“I have been using Homeproud Handyworks for a couple of years. Ken has been meticulous in his work. I have the utmost confidence in Ken and his work. I totally trust in his advice on how things should be repaired. I highly recommend Homeproud Handyworks!”
“Ken has been my neighbor for over 25 years and during those many years, I’ve watched him updating his marvelous older home.
I was delighted when, a few years ago, he started his own handyman company.
He has done several projects for me, including garage repairs, kitchen flooring and my favorite project: installing a railing for the wheelchair ramp my daughter uses.
Ken designed and built an exceptionally sturdy railing which has proved life saving when the ramp gets slippery. This railing is not only functional but aesthetically pleasing with post caps which have solar lights for a soft glow during the night hours.
Ken’s workmanship is excellent, he is upfront about what he’ll be doing and completes the work in the time frame given. He keeps me appraised of when he can take on a project and if there are to be any changes, such as due to weather issues, he keeps me informed.
My father was a carpenter so I grew up seeing what quality work looked like. I see this in all the work Ken has done for my home!”
“We are big fans of Ken in this house. He’s here when he says he’ll be here. He’s especially responsive when we’re in a pinch. He’s empathetic and feels our sense of urgency. Even our dog loves Ken! His focus is on quality, not rushing through projects. He makes sure we understand all our options and the pros/cons of decisions. Ken is very versatile and a fantastic human. Hire Ken whenever you need something done at your home!”
“Ken has helped me with two projects and is always concerned with doing things the right way. He is knowledgeable, careful, considerate and an all around good guy!”
“We have used HomeProud Handyworks for several projects and with every project Ken has brought a wealth of knowledge about old South Minneapolis homes and high quality craftsmanship to the project. When working with Ken, we know we can trust him to communicate effectively, offer solutions to meet our budget, and get the job done with excellent workmanship and care. We highly recommend HomeProud Handyworks!”
“Ken was a joy to have around. He showed up on time and always put in a full day (and more). We had absolutely no issues having him around our home. He got here on time and worked hard all day. He kept us informed as the projects went along. Every day he told us when he would arrive and when he planned to leave. He never was absent from the jobsite for even a day.
His work was absolutely top notch. I am a little ashamed to say that his standards exceeded mine. Where I was ready to accept “pretty good”, Ken wanted only the best for me. His work has been durable, and remains a big part of the curb appeal of our home. I’d hire him again in a minute.“
“I recently needed to repair a section of brick façade at one of our properties, about 50 square feet had come loose from the substrate, was badly deteriorated and required replacement. I found Ken Webb online and contacted him. We met on site to review the scope of work. Ken said that masonry wasn’t really his forte, but he was willing to take it on. We agreed on a price and I authorized the work to commence.
If brickwork wasn’t really his area of expertise, it was hard to tell by the quality of work Ken did for us. He was prompt, punctual and stayed on schedule even through a run of bad weather. The worksite was clean at the end of every day. When he was finished, the re-built area blended in very well with adjacent areas and was rock solid. Beyond that, Ken was professional, polite and courteous, an all-around good guy.
I will not hesitate to call on Ken the next time we need a contractor for home repair, and I encourage others to call on him as well!”
“I have used Ken for work at my business and for my mothers home. We also recommend him to customers that shop at our business. Ken’s work is excellent and he stays focused on the work that he is doing. He takes the time to fully understand what is being requested. Ken is a great problem solver. He is punctual and keeps the communication current at all times. I have complete trust in him and was so appreciative of how he treated my 91 year old mother. I wish that I could clone him so that he could help more folks!”
“Ken and I were friends before his handyman business came about: We fostered cats, and Ken and his wife Lisa (who happened to live very near by) ended up adopting two of our (awesome) cats! So we became friends over cats (and dogs!), and grew to admire the work Ken was doing to upgrade/remodel his and Lisa’s South Mpls older home.
How I would summarize Ken:
#1 attention to detail in his work. Ken has many, MANY skills. As Ken’s business began to evolve, and we accepted that WE had minimal skills, we were thrilled to have just a skilled friend. I was not too worried about the precision of baseboard joints, for example, but Ken was. He cares about the finished product.
#2 Ken has done quite a few projects for us because he has a WIDE variety of skills. The average homeowner needs a Ken! For us, he has installed a new kitchen floor, ceiling fan, fencing, totally custom kitty litter box enclosure…
#3 he cares about the safety of our pets. He is not going to leave your front gate open if there is a chance your dogs (or cats!) could come out of the house. As devoted pet parents, this trust is huge.
We love you, Ken!“
“Thank you Ken for your wonderful work! I love the new handrails leading to the porch and on the front porch and backyard deck. I can easily access my home safely and quickly without fear of falling. My home has been enhanced by your careful and customized craftsmanship. The new railings have gotten much attention from my neighbors and even strangers walking by. At night, the solar light railing post caps make my home look magical!“
