Thank you for visiting my website.  I am the owner/operator of A Man & His Tools Handyman Service and this is my website.  By design, it's not sophisticated for a reason.  That reason is: because I don't think you want it to be.  It's just easy and direct.  I am interested in making it as useful for the homeowner as possible.  If you like the website, then I did a good job.  If not, contact me to let me hear your feedback either by Phone at 512-799-8959 or by Email at don_whiteside@yahoo.com.

I have many years of experience in this business and as such, I rely on my excellent Yelp reviews to generate more business.  There is a good chance you found me and my website because of Yelp.  As I am just one person, sometimes I get more requests than I can handle because of the high ratings from my past customers, so I ask and appreciate that you be patient with me!  I maintain the highest quality of service by making sure I do it all myself.  The price I pay is being so busy that sometimes I don't get back with my customers as promptly as I intend.

One of the benefits of using my service for your home repairs is that I am a member of the largest global business networking organization. What does that mean for you?  

It means if you need other services that I cannot provide, I maintain a membership and pay dues to meet weekly to network with and learn about the business of other professionals from lawyers to realtors to insurance agents to flooring experts, any of whom can exceed your expectations for the services they provide. 

So, if you need service that I don't provide, I probably know a guy (or gal) who does.  Maintaining the membership is worth it for my business to be able to find and connect my customers with other professionals I know personally and trust, many of whom I have used myself.

On this website, there are no photos. I find it's much easier to add photos and videos to my business Facebook page.  To see photos of my work, here is a link to my Facebook business page:

Below is a partial list of services I can provide.  If you don't see what you need listed below, please email, text or call to ask me about it.  There are so many things I have done for people over the years that I can't list them all here.   Either, I can do whatever you are looking for, or I will know a trusted professional who can do it for you.

If you have something that's broken in or on your home, I can probably fix it.  And if I can't fix it, I probably know someone in business that can. 

Thank you for visiting and I hope you call me for service when you need a home repair.  I have lots of testimonials, but as a wise web-master recently told me, anyone can fake testimonials.  So, feel free to call me for references.  Then call my references, please.
