Kalamazoo Home Repair LLC is the latest incarnation of the business that I have owned and run since 1997.
I serve the Bronson Boulevard and Winchell neighborhoods exclusively.
Many of you know me as Snapp Construction. Under that name, I did everything from roofing to remodeling to general contracting. While much of this work was enjoyable and rewarding, I often found myself a bit stretched thin. I offered a very broad range of services. Too broad, in retrospect. I realized that the work I really found most enjoyable was fixing the little things. During the course of almost every job, a homeowner would ask whether I knew anyone they could call to repair…a leaky faucet… a broken garage door.. a light switch that had stopped working. I always said, “I’ll just do that while I’m here.” They were sometimes afraid to ask ME. They thought “handyman” work might be beneath me. They were always so happy that I’d just fix their nagging little thing right then. I never felt that I was stooping to do these little things; In fact, these smaller repairs turned out to be the most fun for me!
Handymen have a bad reputation. Deservedly so? In some cases, yes, I believe so. I do know, however, that there are some very skilled and honest ones. I also know that the word can conjour an image of someone who is not highly skilled and not very professional. Instead of trying to valiantly fight that image, I decided to simply use the term “home repair” in describing what I do.
That is why I am relaunching and rebranding my business as “Kalamazoo Home Repair.”
I’m interested in developing long-lasting, trusting, mutually beneficial relationships with my clients. Not everyone will be the right fit, and that’s okay. Some folks are looking for the cheapest. That’s okay, too. I’m not that guy. What I AM is a State of Michigan Licensed Residential Builder with insurance and more than 20 years of experience. I believe there is a market for this type of quality service in Kalamazoo.
Whether you’re a former customer or a potential new one, please feel free to call, text, or email. I’d love to hear what’s on your “to-do” list!
