I have been referred to as “Handy Andy” as early as 11years old. I used to live in a townhome community which had the mail slot right in the door. Sometimes people would lock themselves out and ask me to reach my arm through the door and unlock the door knob.
I have been doing my carpentry and handyman jobs for about 15 years. I started doing more and more of my own repairs and renovations, because I found the quality of workmanship I was paying other people was mostly sub-par. I began to receive requests from friends and neighbours asking me to do various types of work around their homes for them. I have replaced baseboards, electrical outlets, switches, and light fixtures. I have rebuilt balconies and decks. I have been asked to replace door and kitchen hardware, toilets, facets and much more.
I started my business because I really like doing those types of repairs. It’s a great feeling to know that I have helped someone and perhaps made their life better and safer.
I believe that the prices a lot of home renovators are charging is simply not reasonable. I believe that I can apply my trade at a rate that’s very affordable for the customers and still make an income which keeps a roof over my head. People have been suggesting for years that I start my own business and help people which are not able to perform these tasks themselves. I decided to take their advice.
I was extremely impressed with Andy's services. He was very accommodating with my busy schedule, punctual, and professional. He took the time to do the job right; using the materials he thought would be best for job and taking his time to be accurate with his work. Also great at communicating, whether it be through email or telephone - always got back to me promptly. I would highly recommend Andy for any home repair jobs you need. He takes a lot of pride in his work.
Andy was prompt in responding to my request and very punctual. At our home he was very professional and worked efficiently. His work was of great quality and we were pleased with the result. W
Andy has done a great job on the renovations in my bathroom. He caulked the bathtub, installed a new toilet and installed new vinyl on the floor. He was on time, on schedule and very affordable. The quality of his work is very good. He kept the work site very clean during the renovation and also did not leave any mess after he was done. During the project Andy kept me informed with any issues that he found. I am definitely calling Andy for my future renovations!
Very friendly and takes great care in his work. I would recommend this business.
Handy Andy, No matter how big or how small the job is, he is the man . We have an income property and whatever we need he is willing and able. Prompt service, great work and reasonable rates. Better than our old Property Management Company by far
Andy just recaulked my bathroom and did an exceptional job! He is professional and very particular about his work. Andy arrived on time, did a better job than anyone else had done in the past, cleaned up, and the price was reasonable. I highly recommend this business.

Andy was friendly, prompt and his work speaks for itself! I was worried about hiring someone because I did not have a big task to do, but it did not bother him in the slightest. His rates are great; worth every penny! I would absolutely hire him again.

Andy came and re-caulked a big fiberglass bathtub for me. He showed up on time and did nice clean work and I will use him for any future jobs around the home that I need help with.

Just would like to comment on the service provided to us by Andy the Handyman. First and foremost to me is the very prompt response we received after leaving our number to call us back for work that needed to be done. Time is valuable and that showed professionalism and caring about the customer. Andy was great at troubleshooting a job needed to winterize our front door. Also, Andy was informative about the jobs he was working on - professional and pleasant. We would use his services again!
Finding a handyman,
Finding a handyman was a nightmare until I found Andy's ad. If you need a reliable person, excellent craftsmanship, good communication and honesty Andy is your guy. I have already passed his name along to several friends and will continue to do so as I have full confidence that Andy will provide good quality work with an excellent work ethic. I have no concerns with giving him the highest recommendation possible.
Just wanted to say thank you for the work done at our home today - for being so quick to call back initially and fitting us in to do the work. It is greatly appreciated.

I had a tough time locating a reputable Handy Man to so some work in our office. I came across Andy's website and was quite impressed. I emailed him immediately and he promptly replied with the info I required and set-up a time to do the work. Andy is very professional and knowledgeable. He did a great job with the few odd jobs we needed done. Andy's prices were more than reasonable. We will be using Andy's services again in the future!
Andy came to my rescue when I was in need of a handyman to do some doors repairs quickly. Though late for our first appointment he did call to advise of the delay. He was thorough, efficient, personable and used existing materials when possible rather than requiring new when it wasn't necessary. When he left you would never have known a problems with the door had existed. I would highly recommend Andy.
Andy's work was very professional, thorough, and tidy. He was punctual and left me with a perfectly working storm door. Thank you very much.
Exactly what I needed! Andy will be my "go to" guy for future home repair when I'm in a jam. Thanks again.
Professional service with a smile
After a long sleepless night, I contacted Andy to look at a leaking window. Andy returned my phone call promptly and came the same day to take a look at the problem. Within 24 hours, my window was re-caulked. Andy also noticed my window latches were stripped and sourced, ordered and installed the new parts within the week. I am happy to say the rain is now staying outside.As someone who works Monday to Friday, I really appreciate Andy's schedule flexibility to work evenings and Saturdays. Next time I need a handyman, I know who to call!
Thank you for the friendly, professional service!
Lauren - a very satisfied customer!
I was pleased to hear about your recent plans to take on a new venture in household “handyman” jobs. I have seen the renovations that you completed around your own homes – they are impressive! You did a great job in caulking the tub and counter in my bathroom. It was clean and has lasted very well. I recommend your workmanship to anyone wanting things repaired around the home or office.

For over seven years, Andy Brockamp was my next door neighbour. It was always a marvel to see the home improvement projects that Andy undertook and the care with which he worked. Unfortunately, I do not have those sorts of skills and on many occasions, Andy came to the rescue. Building and installing shelves in the garage, changing light fixtures and electrical outlets, putting up custom blinds and rods - all those tasks, large and small - were always done in a timely manner and with great thoroughness. Never a call back needed to repair or complete some job that Andy had tackled. No difficulty in recommending Andy for any job that you might have.
We have been neigbours of Andy Brockamp's for the past 6 years, and have come to very much respect his skills as a handy man/carpenter. We first recognized his skill when he built a beautiful brick wall in his backyard, and some of the work that he has done on his own property.
Over these 6 years, Andy has also been involved with three projects at our home. Andy helped us in the dismantling and rebuilding of our 10' by 20' deck in our back yard.
Andy also gave direction and assistance to rebuilding and relocating our shed - and did most of the shingling for us.
Andy also built a treehouse in our backyard for our boys to play in - he built a deck, a ladder to climb up on, a net that the boys can climb on, and a hammock. We have been extremely pleased with all three of theses projects, and would recommend his expertise and skill to anyone looking for a skilled handyman.
