Phil is HONEST and punctual, always a professional and a gentleman. He came out when my closet floor had flooded, due to a leak inside the wall ( my tub was on other side of that wall) I called on a Sunday night and had a message from him early Monday telling me he would be here. He repaired the leak and even called his plumber to get me a LOW price on having all plumbing replaced, they quoted him a great price too. Phil has done exterior leaky pipes repair for me in the past, when a spigot from a hose connection had broken and was flooding in between my concrete blocks. I found him on the internet, called and, he came quickly and repaired it at a most reasonable cost. I am pleased with his work and would highly recommend him and would use him again in the future. I give him an A+. He also seems like he is a nice person with heart, something rare today.

Wasn't sure who to call and trust especially being out of town requiring work on a rental house but after reading all the reviews I put my faith in what was written. Happy to say they were correct and accurate in his response and professionalism. It was a complicated task to replace rotten joists under a house (crawl space) and he came prepared with a hazmat-looking suit and all, I visited the house a few weeks later and just as the pictures he took, all was done professionally and cleaned up. He also did the extra work to check with the tenant and look at the bathroom above make a professional assessment of the situation. After the work was completed he kept to the price as agreed and stated that there were additional minors tasks completed but that he would not charge. I could have gone cheaper but with the situation the way it was, I needed a professional and Phil was the man!
Fantastic handyman! Phil quickly responded to several things I needed fixed. After having several different experts fail to fix a flooding/air conditioning problem, Phil, along with his a/c guy were able to determine the problem and quickly find a solution. I also had Phil replace a portion of my outside patio, and he did a fantastic job. I highly recommend Phil s services.
Very simply I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Phil was on time, early actually, did exactly what he said he would at the agreed upon price and my yard and driveway were spotless after he left. I would recommend his service to anyone.
if you want a job done thoroughly the first time and work with someone who is responsive and honest....Phil is your man!!! Phil has done many jobs for us, from installing a new roof ( the city inspector even commented that we got a very good roof with great workmanship) to cleaning gutters and fixing a pocket door that comes off the track. I have worked with many handymen over the years.....I've never seen anyone respond as quickly and completely to my questions either via email or phone. I will never call anyone else! Save yourself time and money....call Phil! He'll get the job done right, the first time!
Exceeds expectations! Phil has completed several jobs for us over the last year and we are more than satisfied. He is punctual, honest and always ensures the job is done right. Phil is the ultimate professional and I would recommend his services to anyone who needs home repair/handyman services.
Thankful in Tampa
I've tested 3 other contractors/handymen and all failed. I thank them for failing because they led me to Phil's Hand Service - first in class! I had a list requiring a wide array of skills which he completed in a timely manner while exhibiting great attention to detail. As well, he attended to several additional items that arose while he was working. He's very professional and provides enough information to leave you feeling confident in your choices. I will definitely call on his services again. Thanks Phil!
Following a kitchen fire, I called Phil, who has worked with me on many jobs throughout the years both in my home and my office. No job is too small or too big. He handled all the details for a complete kitchen restoration due to fire and smoke damage: replaced drywall, painted ceilings and walls, replaced tile floor, sealed parquet floors (they are beautiful), and repaired smoke damage throughout the house. He was prompt, considerate of our needs, and responsive to questions. The actual restoration of the kitchen shows his technical skill as well as artistic skill given that our 1950s South Tampa home seems not to have a straight line in it. My family and I lived in our house during the restoration, and Phil made it easy to do so. I recommend him unreservedly.

Phil did a wonderful job with both re-caulking around a tub and fixing a leak under the sink. He originally replaced some sink components, only to discover more problems that existed due to shoddy work from the previous homeowner and some chewing from an unwanted critter. He replaced many more sink components at no extra cost. He was extremely thorough and checked his own work 2-3 times, to make sure that everything was perfect. I will definitely call him the next time we need any work done on our house! Highly recommended!
We purchased an old home in South Tampa, built in 1941, with known lead-based paint involving much of the structure. It was fairly well-maintained, but there were still several issues identified on home inspection and later on by Phil himself. The home has its original windows, which are beautiful but unfortunately were chipping, creating a lead hazard for our family. I looked around and many contractors I spoke with either would not deal with lead paint at all or said they would do the project without regard for the lead issues. Then I spoke with Phil. I knew that he was the answer for us. Phil is lead-certified and knows the proper techniques that are essential to use for safe lead containment. He and his team were there on the day we closed, ready to work. I put him under a time crunch, wanting to be in to put up our Christmas tree, and he worked tirelessly to get the job done and get it done well. Phil treated us like we were family, and his work is impeccable. The windows are stunning, the house is safe for our family to move in, and I could not be happier with the results. As he worked, Phil picked up on additional safety issues and repair issues and kept me updated the entire time. He even fixed many of the additional problems he found free of charge. I am so grateful that we found Phil, and I know we will be using him again for any and all future home repair/improvement projects.
