Rod Heiston was already the head of one business, Heiston Kitchen and Bath, when he began a separate handyman venture. As a seasoned remodeler of kitchens and bathrooms, the tool-belt-clad entrepreneur created Top Dog Professional Handyman Services as a means of serving those customers who need a quick odd job taken care of. The fully licensed handyman company focuses on routine plumbing and electrical tasks, performing a variety of installations, repairs, and troubleshooting inspections, often in less than two hours. Heiston and his team also provide free phone estimates for fix-it jobs ranging from broken garbage disposals to new-fixture installation, and they offer a price guarantee on all estimates. If a customer is quoted a better price by another company, Heiston matches it and then defeats the other handyman in a Go Fish duel for good measure.

In addition to closets, the team also paints entire rooms in single hues or with Grijalva’s custom designed murals of green landscapes, bright flowers, or simple polka-dot accents for children’s theme rooms.
