About Us

Your home is your most important asset. It’s the place you go to relax and feel safe and secure.  Your home is also the place that can cause the most anxiety when those little repair jobs and seasonal maintenance projects start to add up. 


We’re not your average Joes.

Our focus on RESPONSIBILITY, RELIABILITY & RESPECT sets us apart from the competition.


Owner, Toby Asplin (Center) with Some of the Handyman Joes Crew



Take Responsibility

Be Reliable

Treat Everyone with Respect


Our experienced technicians are skilled in all aspects of home improvement, repair and maintenance. Every technician who enters your home has undergone extensive background checks including motor vehicle records, criminal background checks, and drug testing. While we fully trust our technicians – and know that you will too – we exceed the industry’s standards on liability insurance coverage to ensure that you’re protected from on-the-job injuries and damage.


Rather than calling various specialists to take on different tasks, our Joes are your go-to guys for all home improvements, repairs and maintenance. We’ll take care of your to-do list in a quick, efficient manner.  High quality, consistent work means every home repair, improvement or maintenance job is quickly checked off your list so you can get it off your mind.


We guarantee there will be no surprises when you receive your bill. If the scope of the project changes, we will re-estimate the project or walk you through a change order providing the exact details and cost of the change.
