Our 40+ year old home was in need of a helping hand when The Odd Job Guy, Mark Fenech, was referred to us by neighbours. The job we had in mind was freshening up our second bathroom but one thing quickly led to another. Mark just rolled with the ever-growing list and cheerfully carried out each task, no matter how big or small. He arrived promptly when he said he would and worked non-stop till the end of the day or when the job was done. His attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile was impressive. It’s very reassuring to know just who to call when the next odd job (or two) comes up!
I was referred to the Odd Job Guy by my father in law when we decided to get our stairway light fixtures replaced. We were so happy with Mark’s work we decided to hire him to upgrade our very outdated un-functional main bathroom. Having three children it’s difficult to shop for accessories. We sent him a list of what was needed and trusted him to choose what would be appropriate for our needs. We came home from vacation to a truly stunning bathroom. It was beyond what I imagined it would look like. His prices are always fair and upfront. I love how he notices details I might have otherwise missed.
Mark, The Odd Job Guy has fantastic painting skills, and is a true professional. We hired Mark to paint our main floor hallway, stairway leading to second floor, family room, dining room and kitchen including all baseboards, doors and trim. He spent the first three days preparing the wall surfaces for painting by plastering all scratches, dents, cracks and nail pops, then sanding and priming the repairs before even touching a paint brush or roller! This extra detail taken shows in the end result with flawless smooth walls and laser cut edging! Mark was punctual on a daily basis, honest, and genuinely cared about the quality of his work. We would highly recommend Mark for any painting jobs you are considering!
We’ve been using Mark for our odd jobs for years. He’s the first person we call when we need something done. Over the years he’s installed baseboards, downspouts, quarter round, dimmer switches, closet doors, stair railings and ceiling fans as well as a myriad of other repairs too numerous to mention here. He also recently did a complete bathroom Reno and the results were fantastic.
We never have to worry that something won’t be done correctly. Mark is always several steps ahead, coming up with different solutions to a problem. He’s efficient, on-time, and a nice guy.
Mark has completed a variety of jobs in my townhouse over the past 4 years. He is methodical, organized, dependable and trustworthy. He takes the time to explain and provide options. Mark has brought in a variety of tradesmen who share the same level of professionalism. He is a creative problem solver who goes above and beyond to ensure that the job is done correctly and to my satisfaction! Mark even take my dog out for a walk and gives him lunch!
I was impressed with not only Mark’s high quality work but his punctuality, honesty, his wide range of knowledge and the excellent way in which he troubleshot any issues that arose. Mark sincerely cares about his customers. His professionalism, cheerful personality, flexibility and great sense of humour will make doing anyone’s home improvement projects less stressful and truly gratifying. I definitely will be relying on The Odd Job Guy‘s services again in the future.
My house has had a complete makeover from top to bottom…wall paper removed, all walls, doors, trims and ceilings repaired and painted, new kitchen counter top, backsplash, and floor. New counter tops, sinks and toilets in all bathrooms, new light fixtures and hardware throughout the entire house and countless other “odd jobs” inside and out. My house is now bright and modern and a pleasure to come home to. As my niece says “it’s now a house of light and happiness”!
The thorough preparation of the walls and careful painting of the living, dining room and hall resulted in a high quality paint job. We would highly recommend you to anyone who needs a skilled, conscientious worker who has all the necessary tools to do a very professional job.
Later, Mark came back to do a few days of painting, both walls and trim. Not only did he do every job with the utmost care and attention, he also made sure my home was spotless when he left. I feel so lucky to have found The Odd Job Guy to finally do work that had been on hold for years.
