"I have to give Inherently Handy a hand! This is a great operation. I've hired them twice and, both times, quietly marveled at how easy it is to work with them.  These guys do quick, professional, and neat work. I needed a few fixes made before family comes to eat turkey, and Noah not only knocked a couple off the list, he talked to me about how I might do  some of the other ones myself. If you need something put right, don't hesitate to delegate!"

"I recently had Joey from Inherently Handy come spend a day at my house doing all kinds of work - replacing thresholds, fixing pocket doors, repairing wobbly deck rails, and building a walkable platform with stairs in my crawl space. I happen to have a bunch of wood left from other projects so Joey used that material up (Yay! That pile is gone!). Sometimes I've had concerns with creepy contractor guys showing up at my door. He is a super nice guy- ZERO sketchy factor. He's very polite, intelligent, clean cut, hard working, organized, etc etc etc. I am already starting the next list for him! All those small to medium size projects that I've been meaning to get to? They are now on the Inherently Handy List!!"

"Joey is finishing up the second visit to my 1928 bungalow in St. Johns.  On both occasions he has worked on the house I am amazed at the volume of work he can complete in a short amount of time.....He is very talented and has a great eye for choosing materials that maintain the integrity of the architecture while also giving it a fresh look.  I have also asked him for input on choices regarding both functionality and design, and he does not hesitate to offer suggestions when asked, but more importantly he knows how to ask the right questions to allow the homeowner to make an informed decision. He is also incredibly easy to work with.  Being in close quarters with a stranger for hours on end is usually uncomfortable, but Joey does a great job of knowing when to engage in light conversation and also when to be unobtrusive (I worked from home the days he was here, often needing to excuse myself for business calls, etc.)  He is just now wrapping up and I am already dreaming of the next project!"

"We really appreciated Joey's assistance in mounting a TV, shelves and installing a new pendant light in our condo! He was very responsive and easy to schedule with! ....He quickly got to work helping us with the various tasks we needed! He is super easy-going, great work ethic, and very nice to our little nosy dog who always wants to get in the way!"

- Handyman: Joey / November 2016

"I called Joey with a laundry list of things I needed done. Joey responded quick, gave me a time, and showed up ready to go. Joey is very laid back, easy to talk to and work with. He got an enormous amount of things done in the time he was here, more than I thought could happen, and I thought the price for the work was reasonable. He was also able to handle things that I thought we might need a specialist for. The best recommendation I can give is we've asked him to come back to do some molding work  when he's available."

- Handyman: Joey / September 2016

"I've used Joe on three different occasions and every time he's exceeded my expectations & I'm pretty hard to please. I've looked for many years for a competent handy man that I can count on to do projects.....If your looking for a good honest man to help you with projects big or small, Joe is your guy."

- Handyman: Joey / November 2015

"Personable, prompt, reason-ably priced, and solid worksmanship. Joey quickly resolved issues with our chimney and a baseball sized hole in our wall. Very satisfied. Will definitely work with him in the future."

- Handyman: Joey / March 2015

"Joey is professional, efficient, friendly and conscientious.  I discovered that he can also do electrical work and so I will have him come back.  His assistant, Lindsay, is also very friendly and helpful with excellent communication skills. Lindsay books the appointments. I highly recommend Inherently Handy."

"We've struggled with finding a repair person to have the level of service you guys have offered. This was the smoothest experience. Between your professionalism & the fact you're located in North Portland like we are, you've won a customer for future handy projects. Thank you." 

- Handyman: Noah / August 2017

"...I was at the end of my rope searching for someone who would do this job. Thanks to Yelp, I found Joey. He was so responsive (over Christmas) and helpful! I didn't want another person to come out to tell me they couldn't install my above stove microwave, so I sent some pictures and explained the issue. Joey provided a reasonable quote and we scheduled an appointment. Joey was awesome! He arrived on time and got right to work. He brought sheets to cover the area too, which I really appreciated. It's nice to have a microwave again! So glad I found Joey!!"

- Handyman: Joey / February 2017

"Thanks so much for your excellent work! Your approach, skills, communication and quality of work made for great results for a variety of repairs at our house. And we really appreciated your easygoing nature and flexibility. Joey was able to fix a door that we couldn't find new hardware for, and he made such efficient use of his time while he was there. You don't come across many folks with a work ethic like his these days. Thanks for keeping that tradition alive. We'll pay it forward!"

- Handyman: Joey / October 2016

"Really appreciated the work that inherently Handy did at my house. Lydia did a beautiful paint job upstairs and I am so thankful for her careful work. Also the estimate she gave me was spot on. Joey came over and installed a couple of appliances and fixed a gate. Again, great work and the estimate for time was on point. Thanks, I will call you guys again."

"I hired Joey recently to install some cat doors and weather stripping in my rental property. He was easy to work with, from scheduling to completing the job and paying online. It can be tricky to find a reliable handyman, especially when I can't actually be there to supervise, but I think I've found the guy! I've hired him for a second project, too."

- Handyman: Joey / April 2016

"I recently used Joey to help me install a weigh/pull up rack in my garage. A project that would have taken me 2 full days and he did it in about 2.5 hours. He was courteous, efficient and very reasonably priced. The rack is working great, now I really don't have an excuse to work out!! I'm also now finding more projects around our house for him to help with! Absolutely will use him again!"

- Handyman: Joey / March 2016

"Joey's been here a few times for various smaller preparation for us selling our house. He's always been on time, worked fast and efficiently, charged by the hour and packed quite a bit into that hour (unlike some handymen who look at a job and want to charge for each task separately). He was also able to squeeze in a job at the last minute, which was very helpful. A talented handyman that I'd highly recommend."

- Handyman: Joey / September 2015

"Joey did a great job converting an oddly shaped closet in our home into a useful, beautiful space.  The work he did makes me extremely happy and helps me stay organized. Joey has great craftsmanship, has reasonable rates and was very pleasant to work with."
