When Village Handyman merged with Craftsmen Restoration in 2010, it brought along its 40 years in the home-contracting biz. Yet even with this wealth of experience, the company recognizes the vital importance of continuing education. That's why employees regularly attend internal workshops, industry trainings and certifications, manufacturer seminars, and even regular plant tours so they can truly understand the products they use. Homeowners can ask an insured technician for roof repairs, siding installation, or more complicated projects, such as removing a deck or updating chimney masonry to prevent Santa infestations.

Sam Richardson's father taught him many things, including drywall at age 10 and power tools before his 12th birthday. But the most important thing Sam learned was honesty and professionalism.

With a level of care and precision that recalls bakers mixing ingredients for a cake, the Color Surface team applies a concrete coating specially designed to beautify and protect the surfaces of patios, garages, and basement dungeons. The team’s premium coating systems—many of which closely mimic the appearance of polished granite or terrazzo—protect surfaces from staining with advanced construction materials. Epoxy coatings help keep garages clean and dry, and acid-stain systems enhance basements without the risk of mold presented by carpeting or the risk of attack presented by live bear rugs. When they aren’t laying new flooring, the team also builds custom concrete countertops and statues of Teddy Roosevelt to further enhance each home’s look.
