These guys are great. Used them many times for a wide variety of projects. As a former contractor, I recognize a deal when I see it.
SMS (Monte and Nick Baker) is the Ithaca area's BEST Handyman company I've ever worked with! The variety of work they do at such a high level is impressive and very convenient. Instead of calling 5 different specialists, I only have to call one. They did a great job fixing frozen and broken pipes this past winter in my house. They responded quickly and were in the next day. I found them very friendly, knowledgeable, and they really went out of their way to answer my questions, give suggestions, and help me understand some of the complicated workings of plumbing and heating. They even stayed late to make sure the problems were fixed and gave me a discount. I highly recommend SMS for any property maintenance, repairs, or improvements. I will call them every time for my personal use as well as for my businesses and clients. Feel free to contact me for a more in-depth review of SMS. -Chris Washburn (Real Estate Agent, Business Manager, Home Owner) email@example.com

At the request of our customer, we used stones which they had left over to to create a simple, stylish, and functional walkway. They wanted a path by the side of the garage with a couple of steps leading to a new patio/landing for their grill... we were happy to make it happen. Also during the time of this project, we hung a storage lift in the garage to store kayaks, and repaired/re-finished hardwood floors in the house.
|Hardwood Floor Refinishing, Painting, Maintenance
After purchasing their new home, but before moving in, our customer wanted a complete re-freshening of their place. We refinished hardwood floors and counter tops, repaired walls and painted, fixed doors, windows, railings, shelving, and more. When our work was completed, the family had a fresh, functional, and clean home to move in to.
|Tile and Hardwood Floor Installation
This project consisted of removing old flooring, laying of appropriate sub flooring, then installation of the new flooring. After completion the entry areas had new ceramic tile, the living and dining rooms had new hardwood floors. Additionally, new plumbing and a standing shower unit was installed in one of the rooms.
The homeowner consistently had water leaking into a room on the second story. This caused a fair amount of damage to the ceiling, walls, and roof trusses. Because the shingles had been replaced somewhat recently they could not afford a full replacement. We found the location of the leak and compromised structure. Damaged trusses were strengthened, sheathing replaced, water/ice barrier and new shingles were installed in only the compromised area.
The customer wanted to transform an unfinished portion of their basement into a functional guest space. The final product included a closet, an entertainment center, separate heating, a shelf along the knee wall, additional outlets, lighting, and laminate wood floors.
|Community Center Access Ramp/Stairs
This community center had very weathered and outdated handicap access ramp. We were tasked with designing and building an ADA compliant access ramp and stairs for their patrons. The greatest challenges were to create this within a very limited space, without impeding the existing walkways, disturbing underground utilities, or disrupting patrons access to areas around the site, all while being budget conscious.
