What Elizabeth Had To Say!

Steve just blew out my sprinklers. Two other vendors failed in the 24 hours prior to this. Steve is smart, has years of experience and most importantly, patience to figure out a less than straightforward issue. And he was no more expensive than anyone else. AND I paid someone who showed up and failed just an hour prior who told me it wasn't doable and that I had wasted his time. I adore Steve. I will be calling him again.

What Dennis Had To Say!

Before finding The Maintenance Shop, I dreaded annual chore of lining somebody up to blow out the sprinklers. I would call, play phone tag a bit, and then finally connect with somebody to arrange a date. The Maintenance Shop spares me the ordeal: I get notifications of when blowouts are to be performed, I can sign up by e-mail, and I can pay my bill via PayPal. I heartily endorse The Maintenance Shop as one of the still-too-few service providers who understand how to save customers time by using modern communication tools.

What Christine Had To Say!

I have relied upon Steven Crist and The Maintenance Shop for several years for jobs at my primary residence as well as a rental property. He's reliable and follows through on everything he's done for me, from yearly sprinkler system maintenance all the way up to repairing several broken lines, replacing the timer and installing a new power supply in the garage. He's the first person I call when something goes wrong and I need help. I trust him completely.

What Gary Had To Say!

If you are looking for an excellent an honest person to work on any project in your home, you have found it if you bring your problems and projects to the Maintenance Shop. I had an installation problem in my kitchen and Mr. Crist made the repairs and did not leave until I was 100% satisfied that everything was working fine. He and his assistant know what they are doing and are easy to work with.

What Keith Had To Say!

Steve Crist is one of a dying breed, that is, a man of his word & prompt. That itself would go a looooong way in the repair world. He'll look at the job, tell you what it takes to accomplish it and stick to it. Without his saying so, he's honest and capable; a very good combination.

What Glenda Had To Say!

If you are in need of some help with that problem around the house - these are the guys to call. I had an electrical problem with my rental house that I had another guy try to fix but he couldn't find the problem. Steven Crist didn't give up! He followed it through until he found the issue and fixed it. Great work!!!
