HOME:   Sometimes home repairs and maintenance projects can be intimidating or downright difficult without the right tools and experience. That's when I can help. I'm Jim Talcott, owner of Talcott Home Repair. As a licensed builder with over 30 years experience, I can help you with your home maintenance needs. I've been a Kalamazoo area resident since 1976 and have established a reputation of honesty, fairness, and quality workmanship. But don't just take my word for it - look over the testimonials. I invite you to look over my website and learn more about my business...I guarantee my work! ABOUT TALCOTT HOME REPAIR: Talcott Home Repair has only one employee - the owner. I do all the work, from the initial estimates right through to the end of the project. If you have questions or concerns you know who to call and at the end of the day there's only one person responsible to ensure your project is successfully completed. I've been doing home repair since 1974. In 1995 I became a licensed builder so I could take on the larger projects requiring licensing. At that time I began to build homes in the $200,000 to $300,000 range. It was at this time I purchased full coverage insurance and have been with the same agent since 1995. By the year 2000 the repair and maintenance side of the business had continued to grow to the point where I stopped building new homes. I will still happily do the larger basement remodels whenever I have the opportunity and bring a wealth of experience to address your specific problems or concerns." QUOTES: I welcome the opportunity to visit your home, look over the project and provide a Free written estimate. We will set up an appointment to fit your schedule. During the visit I'll find out more about the project, what you'd like done and what steps will be taken to complete the job. We will take the time also to discuss any materials needed to complete the job. My written estimates cover only the Labor costs. At the time of my visit I can usually provide you with a rough estimate of what the materials will cost. If you are comfortable with the labor quote I will certainly take the time needed to get you more information on the cost of materials.

We hired Talcott home repair and they were the first handyman to work on our house. He was on time, courteous and did very high quality work. He was well prepared and we are ready to hire Talcott for our next home repair. I would highly recommend Talcott to work on your home.

Exceptional Service

Jim's work is beyond reproach.

His work is meticulous, his integrity and honesty remarkable.

I have used him for household repairs for 3 years now and can't say enough good things about him.

He not only does exceptional work but explains what he will do before.

His painting of my home took longer but he stuck to his original estimate.

I am able to leave my home, as I did when I went out of town, with total trust.

Reliable with great quality work

I've known Jim Talcott for years. He's done lots of work on my neighbor's house and mine. He's an expert carpenter and painter but will do most anything and do it well! The last project he did for me last summer was to rebuild my screened-in porch. What I like about Jim is he always has ideas to improve the project---problem solving for me when I haven't a clue. An example on the porch: used cedar which is termite resistant because this area is historically an old apple orchard and sized the door opening so it would take a standard size door which saved me money not needing to custom design a door.. He also put in a new ceiling when mine proved unpaintable! Things I would never have considered and it looks great a year later!

He's an honest man and I can leave the key with him so I'm not stuck at home when he's working. That's just a huge bonus. He also sticks to his estimates. Hire him and you'll never regret it!
