John P. - Volo, IL:  ***** 12/17/2013
We hired Dave to do some work on our kitchen, and we highly recommend him.  We have a lot of of other jobs that need done, and we will definitely be using Dave for all the work.  Prompt, professional, friendly and well priced.  We highly recommend A-1 Rockin' Handyman Service.
Dawn C. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 12/5/2013
Prompt service, I called to have a bathroom exhaust fan and light replaced.  Was replaced in a short amount of time, and now works perfectly!  Will use Dave's services again should the need arise.
Valerie K. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 11/25/2013 
We hired Dave to finish our garage.  He came out that day and had an estimate a few days later.  The work was scheduled and done by the end of the week.  He did a great job.
Dena T. - Lake Villa, IL:  ***** 11/20/2013 
We asked Dave to create interior cat doors to provide our kitties safe passage into rooms inaccessible by their new canine sibling.  We are thrilled with the new mini cat doors that Dave created.  Dave's skill and attention to detail shows in the quality work that he offers.  We highly recommend A-1 Rockin' Handyman Service and will be using Dave's expertise for future projects.
Sonia B. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 10/10/2013 
Dave recently put in tile on our bathroom floor and it looks beautiful.  He had to tear up the old flooring first which was not easy.  Dave was very professional and thorough in his work.  We also have Dave coming back to hang a light fixture in the hallway.

​​Jen S. - Grayslake, IL:  ***** 10/31/2018

I highly recommend A1 Rockin' Handyman Service.  I e-mailed about a job and heard back right away.  Dave came out the next business day to complete the job.  He was very professional, friendly, showed up on time, and got the job done the right way for a very reasonable price.  We will definitely be calling him back the next time we need some work around the house.

Jean S. - Antioch, IL:  ***** 3/25/2018

I am extremely happy with all the work Dave provided over several days of projects.  He is very professional and personable, and I will be recommending him to my friends and associates!

Michele O. - Grayslake, IL:  ***** 9/13/2017

Dave is great.  Will honestly tell you what he can do and what he can't do.  Everything that he has done in our home has been perfect.  We highly recommend him!

Wendy W. - Salem, WI:  ***** 7/26/2017

Dave was a very professional and friendly handyman who called my husband back within 24 hours of leaving a message.  He called before arriving to let me know he was on his way.  Dave did an excellent job on my trim.  Definitely would recommend him for any handy work needed to get done around the house!

Aldo C. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 7/24/2017

Dave has done about 5 different jobs on my property, from tile replacements, to leaking toilet problems.  Every time he has done an exceptional job, not one has had any issues after; he is very thorough.  He probably isn't the cheapest handyman you can hire, but you can't put a price on peace of mind - it will be done right and it will stay right saving you money in the long run.

Mary K. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 5/24/2017

Dave was great...can't praise him enough.  All I know is that if I need any other work done..he will be the only person I call.

Kelly S. - Grayslake, IL:  ***** 3/28/2017

Dave is fantastic!  We had him back at our house for some additional projects.  He is always happy to help out on small projects or larger projects.  He is always very responsive and will work with your timeline to get things done!  We will continue to call Dave as things come up and are always happy to give his name as a referral to others.

Juan O. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 3/2/2017

Fast, friendly and high quality.  We just moved into our new home and found many problems throughout the house.  We called Dave and the following morning, he showed up on time and fixed everything we needed done.  We definitely recommend him and will use again.

Sue K. - Hainesville, IL: ***** 12/21/2016

I thought Dave was great.  Called inquiring about some dry wall work I needed done; he called back and was at my home giving me an estimate the same day.  After agreeing with the estimate, he was back within a few days to start the job and completed the same day!  Drywall came out looking seamless and better than I thought it would.  To give those reading this review an idea, I had a soffit and ceiling that needed drywall patching due to lines being replaced for the AC and furnace, so needed about 20 sq ft of drywall replaced.  I will definitely give Dave a call again.

Marie M.:  ***** 9/14/2016
Dave was great!  He was punctual and very friendly.  He was flexible with his time and made sure he was able to accommodate my request.  I had a garbage disposal go bad and Dave was sure to replace it in a timely manner and was sure to remove the old damaged one.  Highly recommended.

Liz O. - Grayslake, IL:  ***** 8/4/2016

Dave was responsive, friendly and did a great job with my drywall and painting project!  I called several places, and he was the one guy who always got back to me timely.  He was very reasonably priced, and I would absolutely call him again for future projects.  Thanks Dave!

​​Lisa F. - Vernon Hills, IL:  ***** 7/27/2016

Dave came to one of our locations on a whim when we needed help with a few projects.  Dave is very professional, always explains what he is doing every step of the way, and is VERY reasonably priced.  We will definitely be calling Dave back for future projects!  Thanks A-1 Rockin' Handyman!

Vanessa L. - Lake Villa, IL:  *****  6/10/2016

Dave was awesome.  He returned my inquiry call very quickly, came out to give an estimate, and completed all the work without delay.  He is professional, works with attention to detail, and took time to educate me along the way.  He is reasonably priced, takes pride in doing a great job, and you can tell he cares about his clients.  I'm very happy with the light fixture change, kitchen faucet replacement, and drywall repair he did for us, and wouldn't hesitate to hire him again!  He is also very fun to chat with!  :D Highly recommended.

Vicki​ P. - Fox Lake, IL:  ***** 5/27/2016

On time, professional, great work and fair prices!  Plus some great music!  He really cares about getting it right the 1st time!

Judy F. - Barrington, IL:  ***** 5/24/2016

Was looking for someone to replace a longtime handyman that moved out of town, and I think this is my guy.  He returned my call right away and was on the spot, on time, fun, friendly and got the job done for my small project to replace an under counter light fixture.  A big thumbs up and I'll be calling him for my next project.

Matt R. - Round Lake, IL: ***** 5/2/2016

For starters, Dave is a real good guy.  Professional, friendly and he does great work, also very reasonable.  I needed work done on short notice and he got out to me in 2 days.  I would absolutely recommend Dave and will use him again.

Jessica C. - Volo, IL:  ***** 4/21/2016

Dave has done several things around my house.  He does awesome work and is reasonably priced.  I have referred him to several of my coworkers and friends.

B B. - Gurnee, IL:  ***** 3/30/2016

Dave is the go-to guy.  He's personable, professional and punctual.  Not to mention reasonably priced.  Unlike most contractors, he calls you back promptly and confirms his arrival.  I much appreciated his attention to safety issues and patience in helping me understand everything he was doing.  This is the kind of person who, when he comes to do repairs, you hand him the keys to your house and go run errands.  I would recommend him highly, and he will definitely be on my speed dial for future projects.

Czarina C. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 3/3/2016

Dave came and installed a bunch of light fixtures for us, including a pendant in our two-story foyer.  He was the first handyman I contacted who responded promptly, came out the next day for a walk-through and  moved his schedule around to do the work two days later.  Others I never received a response from.  He's creative and was able to think out of the box when we ran into some logistical issues, and is meticulous with what he does, including cleaning up the to restore the rooms in the condition they were in previously.  You'll get great service at reasonable rates, confidence the job was done right - and some fun stories and good conversation to boot!

Chris Z. - Volo, IL:  ***** 2/25/2016

We have had Dave come out a few times to do a few different projects around the house.  He is always very friendly, shows up on time, does a fantastic job, and is very reasonably priced.  Whenever I need something done around the house, Dave will be my first call.

Rebecca S. - Mundelein, IL:  ***** 2/17/2016

Dave was great!!  Very friendly and does a wonderful job.  He was only 1 of 2 handymen that even got back to me (I reached out to several - apparently some handyman put people on back burners if your project is too "small").  He was punctual and made sure to teach us along the way (very helpful since we are first time home owners)!  He was also VERY reasonably priced.  I doubt anyone can match him.  His honesty was very much appreciated,and we would love to have him work for us again on future projects.

Bill K. - Grayslake, IL:  ***** 1/13/2016

Dave was very easy to work with.  Responded quickly to my original call, arrived promptly and on-time to give me an initial estimate and was a pleasure to work with through the entire process.  Workmanship was excellent, and I never felt like I was being taken advantage of.  Rates were very competitive, and I would highly recommend Dave for any work you need assistance with.

Patricia A. - Grayslake, IL:  ***** 10/23/2015

Dave is your guy!  I am very impressed with the approach he takes with clients!  He was prompt, friendly, and always had a joke to share!  Most importantly he showed me what he was doing and how to do it so that it was not a mystery as to what was done.  Reasonably priced and straightforward with the work he did.  I will definitely be calling him for future projects.  Great guy and does quality work!  You won't find any better!

Jennifer K. - Wauconda, IL:  ***** 10/13/2015

Dave is the best - high quality work, can do attitude and great to talk to.  You never know what you're going to get with handymen, but with Dave you get the best at affordable prices every time.

Carmela R. - Volo, IL:  ***** 9/27/2015

I plan to call A-1 first for any future needs.  Dave is a tremendous help, very knowledgeable and a great teacher.  It brings me confidence to know my rental property will be well taken care of when needed as well as my residence.  Thank you Dave and company for living up to a great reputation.

Erica D. - Island Lake, IL:  ***** 8/31/2015

Dave is great!  He replaced 2 bathroom exhaust fans, 1 bathroom faucet, installed dimmers/outlets and replaced our exterior shutters.  He is very prompt, courteous and professional.  Does great work!  We will definitely be calling him back for more work!  Thanks Dave!  Erica and Mo S.

Cecilia W. - Palatine, IL:  ***** 6/29/2015

I called because of a leaky toilet & light switch that wasn't working.  Dave fixed both.  Was on-time, courteous and reasonably priced.  Was great service.

Bruce H. - Round Lake, IL:  **** 6/29/2015
We were very happy with the quality of the work, professionalism and value.

Jan M. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 6/13/2015

I was very impressed with Dave and A-1 Rockin' Handyman Service.  He returned my call in a timely manner and met with me almost immediately to go over the projects that I needed done.  He walked me through everything that was needed to complete the jobs and came back quickly to get the work done.  As he was working, he was very clean and even explained what he was doing so that I could potentially do some of the work myself in the future.  He charged a reasonable price as well.  Very pleased with the experience.

T K. - McHenry, IL:  ***** 6/11/2015

​I was so frustrated with handymen and contractors not showing up or saying they can do a job and not call back or return phone calls!  I decided to try one more time.  After calling Dave and leaving him a message, within a few minutes, he called me back.  Wasn't that far from me on a job and came over the same day!  He assessed the job.  Dave is very professional and knowledgeable.  He even gave me a follow up call!  Look no further!!  Dave's your guy!!  I will always call him for jobs and repairs.  Very impressed.  Thank you Dave!!

George R. - Kenosha, WI:  ***** 3/23/2015

Recently my wife and I purchased a home in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Although it is a wonderful home, we needed to "tweak" a few things to make it more to our liking.  One of the projects we decided to work on first was the addition of lighting fixtures outside of our bathroom.  We ultimately hired an electrician to install the lights, but when he left, we were surprised at the amount of drywall he removed to install the lights.  When I called Dave to see if this was something he could fix, he said "no problem".  We made an appointment for that week, and he showed up sight unseen with the necessary tools and supplies needed to get the job done that day.  Not only did Dave drive to Wisconsin to help, he came in with a smile, and got right to work!  When the job was done, I came away with an excellent drywall job, at a very reasonable price.  We would hire Dave any day to work on our house!

Kelly S. - Grayslake, IL:  ***** 2/24/2015

We were searching for a handyman for a few projects on our list.  The first was painting our kitchen ceiling.  It needed some repair before it could be painted. We got Dave's name as a recommendation from friends and are VERY happy that we called him.  He came by quickly to assess the job and set up a date to complete it.  The pricing was just right!  He was very honest about what he thought the job entailed and how much time he would need.  He was always on time arriving and was very fast to return any phone calls.  He did a superb job on our ceiling and even fixed a few other things while he was there (such as a loose cabinet in the kitchen).  We could not have been happier with the service from Dave as well as the quality of the work.  We have already planned a few more projects to tackle with him in the coming months.  We would definitely recommend Dave at A-1 Rockin' Handyman Service to others.  He is very reasonable with price and will make sure the job is done to your satisfaction.  He is great to work with!  We will be calling him in about a month to do another project.

Steven S. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 2/23/2015

​Needed miscellaneous work done on a new home.  Dave helped to identify easy fixes I could do on my own to save money and handled the more difficult work himself.

Rene H. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 2/11/2015

Just wanted to thank Dave for his services.  He's not kidding when he says there is not a job too small.  I really appreciated his quick response to my window issue/inquiry.  He got it fixed fast.  He's reasonable, professional, and legit.  I highly recommend Dave, and I will be using his services again.

Nicole W. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 1/8/2015

Dave was awesome!!  Very professional, on time and reasonably priced service.  He was personable and efficient at the same time.  He replaced my leaky kitchen faucet.  I will most definitely call him again for more projects that we discussed.  Glad I found him!!

​John W. - Round Lake Beach, IL:  ***** 12/19/2014

Had Dave come out for what I thought was a 15 minute job to reattach a loose gutter since I had no desire to attempt a second story repair myself.  Dave gave me a date and time and showed exactly when he said he would.  Once he took a look, it was discovered it was a little more involved as there was also damage to the flashing.  Didn't phase Dave a bit and it was so refreshing to not get the typical runaround that this is going to be a much more costly job.  It ended up taking more like an hour due to the extra work involved, but Dave was more focused on doing a quality job than worrying about charging more.  When the job was done, I was happy to pay Dave a little extra to match the extra amount of work.  There were no surprises.  If you want a quality job done at a fair price, then Dave is your man.  If I need any handyman work done in the future, my first and only call will be to Dave at A-1 Rockin' Handyman Services.

Jeremy S. - Lake Zurich, IL:  ***** 12/11/2014

We had a long punch-list of things we wanted fixed on our new house.  We had called two of the contractors in the area, but were not pleased with the prices quoted.  Then we called Dave.  He told us up-front that he could not do everything on our list - - and I respect people who know their limitations - - but there was only one project he could not do (and that required a master electrician).  He gave us a reasonable rate and did great work.  Our projects included:  dry-wall repair, a ceiling fan replacement/re-wire, a particularly tricky faucet replacement, light-fixture replacements, and rebuilt our sump-pump back up systems.  Because of his metal-working skills and experience, he was also able to fix our attic access, instead of replacing it, which saved us even more money.  Our projects took several days - - Dave was always on-time, and he did great work.  We are very happy with the results.

Jean D. - Kildeer, IL:  ***** 11/7/2014

Dave came to my house in September and did a great job helping me rewire and hang a vintage chandelier in my kitchen.  Really happy with his attention to detail and patience with my unusual project.

Erin L. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 10/20/2014

We have called Dave numerous times to help us out with some issues around the house!  He always comes over ASAP and gives any estimate we need or fixes our problem very professionally and promptly.  He even came over one night at 10:00pm when our hot water heater went out and fixed the problem right away!  We highly recommend him and will use him again and again!

Brenda T. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 10/5/2014

Great service.  Quick and dependable.  Does a great job!  I have had him do work for me on several repairs, and all were done well.  I highly recommend him.

Robert T. - Grayslake, IL:  ***** 9/17/2014

Dave came out on short notice twice to assemble office furniture for our home office.  He was very efficient and courteous and charged a very reasonable rate for his services.  I would highly recommend him.

Amanda W. - Lake Villa, IL:  ***** 9/14/2014

Dave was prompt, polite and professional.  He got my screen door completed with no issues.  I will definitely use him again!

Heather C - Island Lake, IL:  ***** 8/8/2014

My landlord sent Dave out to take out my garbage disposal... I was so happy with this knowledge of the products, cleanliness, timing, and he was very personable!!!  And he was ON TIME!!!!!  I will definitely refer his services and hang onto his card in case I need him again.  It was a very worry free experience!!!

Andrew R. and Bethany - Gurnee, IL:  ***** 8/6/2014

We needed some help fixing our front door and repairing a light switch in the bedroom.  We called around to different places, but no one was able to come out to help us for at least a month.  Some places didn't even call us back.  Dave was able to come out the next day and fixed both of our problems in a heartbeat.  He was friendly, reasonably-priced, prompt, and really knows his stuff!!  I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of handyman services!   Dave will truly "rock" your world!

Jack H. - Gurnee, IL:  ***** 7/10/2014

I had two small jobs that were taken care of in short order.  I am very pleased with the work and fast service.  We will be calling again for any repair work needed.  Also will be referring A-1 Rockin' Handyman Service to our friends and neighbors.  Also pleased with the price.

Jori C. - Libertyville, IL:  ***** 7/3/2014

Very impressed!  I talked to an electrician that was going to overcharge me, and not come out for 3 more weeks.  I called A-1, and he came out quickly and replaced my kitchen lights.  Prompt, courteous service, and the price was right.  I'm having him back to finish some other projects for sure.

Aaron M. - Vernon Hills, IL:  ***** 6/20/2014

I called Dave to see if he could help me out with a quick soffit fix - and he handled it PERFECTLY.  He came out on time, as scheduled, and took care of my problem quickly and properly.  I will definitely call him again for handyman projects that I don't want to tackle on my own!  Additionally, he was super-reasonable with his price...totally worth it.

Dan F. - Grayslake, IL:  ***** 6/18/2014

My wife and I called Dave on a Saturday for an issue with our toilet.  He came out the same day and looked at the problem.  This was the same day his son was getting married he informed us.  What dedication to helping us!  I showed him some other items we wanted done in my son's rooms with drywall, chair rail, and flooring.  He took care of everything we asked him to do.  In regards to the toilet, it was uneven tile, and he put a new tile floor down as well as fixed the toilet.  He also put a new sink in.  His work is great!  He thinks projects through to fix them right the first time.  He is dependable and willing to go extra efforts in his work.  His prices are very reasonable.  I would use Dave for any home improvement projects again and again.  Finding a good Handyman is not easy to do.  Finding Dave at A-1 Rockin' Handyman has been a pleasure!  If you need help with anything, call Dave.

Carol D. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 6/2/2014

We are so pleased to have found Dave for our handyman service.  He is nice to work with on the job.  He works efficiently.  His charges are reasonable.  He has been to our home twice and will be called again.

Amy P. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 5/15/2014

I was in the middle of painting our powder room when I just could not get to the areas behind the toilet.  I called Dave, and he removed my toilet the same day.  He then returned the following day after my paint job to reinstall.  Dave is very professional, quick & best of all VERY clean!  Thanks Dave!

John P. - Volo, IL:  ***** 4/24/2014

We've used Dave for 3 projects now, and each time he has done a great job!  We would highly recommend him and plan to use him in the future as we need projects or work done.

Amy - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 3/17/2014

I was cooking in the kitchen getting ready for my daughter's birthday party.  Just as soon as our guests started to arrive, my garbage disposal backed up and started to leak under the sink.  I called Dave and left a message.  Less than 45 mins later, he called me back and asked if he could stop to see the problem.  While I was able to get the other side of the sink to work fine, I asked him to do the repairs another day.  He called me Monday morning and said he'd be by with my new disposal (which he picked up, I did not have to go and get it).  Total install was very fast and he even cleaned my kitchen floor for me after.

Jaime K. - Grayslake, IL:  ***** 2/16/2014

Great job!  Dave did everything we asked of him.  Preparing our house to rent, we had Dave paint several rooms, lay down new tile, change light fixtures, and several other things on our list.  Dave finished the job quickly and on schedule.  We will definitely recommend A-1 Rockin' Handyman to friends.

Jay H. - Round Lake, IL:  ***** 2/1/2014

I was confronted with an issue the prior night and made the call to Mr. Dave the following morning at 8am.  He was at my door just before 9am, I was very surprised in the timely arrival.  Mr. Dave was shown the issue with the garage door and made a few repairs that will surely last.  I also asked about some future jobs and he gave me a great estimate on the spot!  I will have his number in my phone for any issues to arise A-1 Rockin' Handyman will be the FIRST I WILL CALL!  Great service, smart work every time, very professional, eager to complete the job and easy to talk with.
