What You'll Get
A macaroni-decorated tool belt and a working knowledge of the Law of Lefty-Loosey can only go so far toward home improvement. Today's Groupon lends a helping hand: for $296, you get a gutter cleaning, moss removal, and outside house inspection from Mr. Handyman of Northwest Portland (a $595 value), serving homes in the Portland metropolitan area.
Mr. Handyman of Northwest Portland's uniformed technicians earn the trust of homeowners with punctual arrival, skilled service, and a guarantee for all work. An important part of spring maintenance rituals, the gutter cleaning clears debris from a home's rain re-routers, freeing up liquid-traffic flow like an angioplasty. Slothful moss gets its comeuppance as spore warriors spray and scrub away the rooftop freeloader. Depending on the condition of customers' house-hats, Mr. Handyman might charge an additional fee for the use of extra moss-removal product ($10–$30). Appointments typically last an hour and conclude with the company's eagle-eyed representatives examining each house's exterior, checking for cracks, rot, and satirical graffiti.
Past clients rave about the professionalism and efficiency of Mr. Handyman. Here's what they are saying in online testimonials:
