Appetizers are small jobs of handyman caliber. The prices are listed represent the going rate for that job by an average handyman. If these are the type of services you require, you should consider the Gourmet Signature Dish to maximize your investment.

Side Dishes

Side Dishes are generally more involved in scope and should be evaluated on a job by job basis. They are normally billed by the square foot i.e. flooring, linear foot i.e. molding but sometimes we can treat them like appetizers and give you an hourly rate. We will always chose the method that works best for the customer

Entrees are larger projects that need to be priced in a bid format such as additions, roofing, or large renovations. Please see this page for more information.

Our Commitment to Service

The Gourmet Contractor was created to bridge the gap between the station wagon handyman and the specialty contractor. Our technicians have submitted to full back ground checks prior to working in your home or business. Our goal is to provide competent, safe service to our clients. We are committed to providing professional service on every job.

Your decision to use The Gourmet Contractor vs. a handyman or a specialty contractor is an important one. We do not take it lightly. We will work hard to give you value for your dollar above our competition. This means we will send a qualified technician who will do the job right the first time. He will work neatly and steadily accomplishing your goals for the day. Give us an opportunity to prove that one stop shopping can save you money.
