Since moving into my townhouse in 2010, the outdated gas fireplace was a real eyesore. Wally McMillan of Done Right Handyman Services, showed me photos of how he had updated another gas fireplaces with new tile. I got to chose the style of brick, and he removed the old tiles and installed the new, including using once piece of complimentary granite instead of several tiles across the front on the hearth, which I really like. Now the fireplace is the focal point of the living room and the upgrade has added to the overall value and appeal of my home.
During the Summer of 2015, we were looking for a company to tear down our old deck and construct a new one. We obtained several quotes from the larger fence and deck companies in Ottawa and then a friend recommended Done Right Handyman Services. Wally came out and gave us an estimate, which was lower than the aforementioned businesses. We were also happy that Wally was available within one week to start construction, whereas the other companies were projecting dates for the Fall.
Wally constructed our deck and met all of our requirements and it was very well built. As opposed to using a nail gun, like many larger companies, Wally screwed in all parts of the deck, including deck boards, making the deck very strong. The job was done within the allotted timeframe and cleanup after the job was done well which was important to us as we have a dog that shares the yard around the deck.
We would recommend Wally & Done Right Handyman Services for your next construction project.

When I decided that I needed more natural light in my ensuite bathroom, a friend recommended Done Right Handyman Services. The owner, Wally, came up with the idea of installing a glass block window to let light in from the great room on the other side of the wall. I was pleasantly surprised by what a difference it made and it looks fabulous from both sides. Wally prides himself on his attention to detail and craftsmanship, and actually made the glass block window himself in accommodate the size of window required. Since then, I've had him handle a few other household projects and have recommended his services to friends and family.
Wally did a great job finishing our basement which involved installing drywall, trim, and a drop ceiling. He also cut and installed tile baseboard in our hallway. He took the time to explain how he wanted to complete the project to make sure we were on board with everything. His work was top quality and we are very pleased with the final result. Wally is very organized, conscientious, thorough, and reliable and we have no problem recommending him.

When I needed a handyman to handle a couple of large projects, Done Right Handyman Services came highly recommended by my neighbor, who had just used Wally's services. I needed my fireplace and bathroom tiled and Wally didn't disappoint. He was prompt, easy to communicate with, attentive to detail and I was very impressed with his workmanship. I'd highly recommend Wally.
Wally assisted us with several household projects when we prepared our home for market, as well as several tasks we needed done at our new condo. He is extremely good at listening to our concerns and what it is we want done. He's also extremely reliable and follows through on what he says he will do in an very timely manner. And the work is always done properly and to our satisfaction!
We highly recommend him.

I have a rental property that needs a little work from time to time in order to keep the tenants happy. Unfortunately I am not a handy man so I need to rely on others. If I had to call a plumber or an electrician or other specialist every time, it would get real expensive real fast. I have come to depend on Wally as my one stop go-to guy. I know he'll figure out what the problem is and come up with a practical way to solve it that won't cost me an arm and a leg. His goal is to fix my problem in the least painful manner. Great service and sound advice - that's why I keep coming to him and don't even bother calling anyone else.
If you've had enough of the never ending tasks piling up on your home's To Do list then you've come to the right place!
