About Matt & LexiAssist
I am extremely motivated and enthusiastic about finding a solution to your current handyman needs. My work ethic calls for me to provide excellent customer service, and to deliver a high-quality project. I own all of my tools, and I am insured. I have over ten years of handyman, remodeling, and rental unit maintenance experience.
I gained my enjoyment of this work while growing up in my father’s woodworking shop helping him build custom furniture and installing cabinets. I enjoy finding solutions to problems and take pride in my ability to solve complex issues.
I started my work experience in the printing industry, which I did for 16 years. For 12 of those years, I was a Project Manager responsible for all aspects of customers’ projects. Like everyone else, I needed to make more money so I started looking for a second job. That is when I decided to start my own business remodeling homes to use the skills and trades I learned growing up.
I have experience working with investors, homeowners, renters, landlords, buyers, sellers, and contractors. My background in customer service allows me to work with anyone in a professional manner.
I appreciate the opportunity to contribute to your home’s maintenance needs. Thank you very much for your consideration.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do I charge?
My minimum charge is $195 for the first 2 hours and $85 for each additional hour. If your project doesn’t require the full 2 hours, I’d be glad to go over a routine checklist of your home’s maintenance needs. I include one free trip for supplies when within my service area. All expenses are passed on to you without any mark-up. Consultations, including measurement services, are $125. I have a $50 trip charge for additional supply runs, non-labor trips, and any job site outside my service area. My service area is a 20-mile radius and/or 30 minutes from my location in Lakewood, CO.
Do I offer free estimates?
I do offer a free estimate when I review the project by photos and details provided by email. If the need for me to come out to the job site arises I charge a $50.00 trip charge.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
- First I communicate with my client asking and answering any questions we have for each other.
- Then I review photos and the scope of work of the project.
- I provide an estimate of the time to complete the project.
- I then schedule an appointment convenient with my customer’s needs.
- After the project is completed I ensure that my client is happy and satisfied with the work I have completed.
Often customers don’t supply enough details for me to prepare an adequate estimate. The best advice I can give is to provide as many details and photos as possible about your project in your request. Secondly, be wary of the cheapest price. It often results in a substandard job or having to pay for the job a second time to have it done right. You want someone who guarantees their work, as I do.
How did I come up with my company name?
I am an entrepreneur who started my first business in 2011. Back then I was given some advice to create a word that is not in the English language for my company name that way when someone searches for me I am always at the top of Google. I was struggling to come up with something good when I said “damn my dyslexia”. That gave me the idea for LexiAssist. I used Lexia meaning reading of and Assist to help people. LexiAssist means to read the situation and assist in the best way possible.
