Plumbing

One of the few core systems of a house, and very complex in nature. Degraded gaskets, clogs, corrosion, and routine wear will grow into bigger issues down the line if not addressed early.

Electrical

Can't figure out why a receptacle is dead? Want that dimmer switch installed or breakers replaced? These are all things the average person struggles with, and there's no shame in that.

Carpentry

Any projects that require the use of saws, sand paper and nails can be daunting to people without experience. This include Ikea furniture, broken table legs, cabinetry and deck work.

I had a faucet in my apartment start leaking out of the blue and ended up calling Tim to have him look into the issue. It turned out to be a real quick fix and he was in and out in less than 30 minutes. Great to work with, quoted me accurately, and had everything to go on hand to get the job done. Full review ›

I've used Tim's services on three occasions now. He has picked up and installed shelving for me in my closet, caulked and painted window sills, changed all the batteries in my smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and resolved an issue with my alarm system. He is very reasonable and reliable. I highly recommend the Rittenhouse handyman! Full review ›

Tim is reliable, affordable and a great handyman. Tim came to my apartment to hang curtains, replace a cabinet door and move some heavy items for me - he was cheerful, ON TIME(!), and even ran to the hardware store to pick up a few items for me. I will continue to use Tim when I need help around the house and I highly recommend him! Full review ›
