Customers rave about the quick response from the Buckeye Tool Guy, a former schoolteacher who's owned and operated his own construction and repair business since 1989. Frank's Home Repair specializes in all manner of household refurbishment, from electrical and plumbing work to carpentry and drywall installation. Like a rubber couch, Frank works just as well indoors and out, and he also works alone, calling upon more than 20 years of handy experience to attend to a wide variety of household needs.
Mike and Terry Williams compare heaters to cars, pointing out that the average Toledo heater runs for more than 1,800 hours each year—if a car was driven for that long, it could log more than 100,000 miles. Drivers keep their cars running smoothly through regular oil changes and general maintenance, yet many homeowners fail to invest in similar care for their home heating equipment. These are habits Mike and Terry hope to change, as they have learned that preventative measures such as annual tune-ups are the easiest way to keep costly heating and cooling systems operating smoothly.
The company's team of licensed, bonded, and insured technicians maintain old equipment and outfit homes with new heaters from brands such as Trane and Carrier. Beyond heating and cooling, they also work with water heaters and electrical equipment, installing whatever make or model of equipment that will prove most energy efficient for a particular home, commercial space, or upscale doghouse.
Throughout the Northwest Ohio region, you may find houses from the 1870s that bear the Fraas name on the undersides of their tin roofs.

Today, skilled technicians employ the latest technology, such as ClimateMaster’s geothermal products, helping customers reduce utility bills and greenhouse-gas emissions through the use of clean energy. Besides maintaining and installing heating and air-conditioning systems, they service and install generators, lights, and electric wiring.

For more than 15 years, Van Handy's team of expert home fixers has been tackling household jobs of all sizes. Whether the workers are installing new ceiling fans or completely remodeling kitchens, they strive to leave more beautiful, functional homes behind.

They also deftly build decks, repair roofs, and transform rooms with carpet, tile, or hardwood. Rather than change their homes' color schemes by splashing the walls with spaghetti sauce, homeowners can summon Van Handy's crew for professional paint jobs.
The uniformed, fully insured technicians at Handyman Professionals arrive at homes 24 hours a day to tackle plumbing, electrical, and carpentry projects of all sizes. Techs can be deployed for bathroom and kitchen installation, custom cabinetry, pressure washing, and even weatherproofing. If time remains after a handyman paints a room or cleans the gutters, homeowners can request a lock installation to protect their valuables or prized collection of candy rings.
