Windycityhandyman is a great guy. He does great work for me but I think he breaks some hearts for others.
You know what they say, "Hell has no fury like a woman scorned".

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS HANDYMAN. He is unprofessional, aggressive, and violent.

I wish I could give him 0 stars. Ron was very difficult to work with. He changed some locks for my building and when I asked him about the cost of his work and if it had been partially paid in advance by the building owner, he became furious and started threatening me for no reason. He took out the locks he installed and even took one of the locks with him. He was violent and threw things around in my backyard. I went to police immediately to report this incident because he had my lock and potential access to my building.

I eventually was able to meet him to get my lock and doorknob back, but I brought a friend with me and I was very nervous about it. Luckily, no violent explosions and we left safely.

Again, please steer clear of this guy.

WIndy City Handyman was founded by Ron Smith. Ron was on his was you becoming a Doctor at Northwestern's "Feinberg School of Medicine". He called it quits just after he finished his forth year. As a boy Ron wanted to be a "Carpenter" and to help others, but he was told that he was wasting a "gift" by not taking advantage of his intellectual ability--that's what the guidance counselors told him. Now, he is back to doing what makes him happy...And what will make you happy, too!! Many have started by saying, "I will need a miracle", and ended with, "Thank you, Ron!"

I found Windy City Handyman on Angie'sList, and later saw that he is registered with ServiceMagic. These are my favorite two sites for finding credible professionals and reviews. After reading about Ron, I figured I couldn't go wrong. I

Ron was completely incompetent when it came to fixing the small odd jobs I hired him to do around my house. He showed up late, had a nasty personality about him and I would never hire him again.

Pros: None

Cons: Where do I start? Rude, Unprofessional, Not knowledgeable

.

We called Ron to have a couple of small jobs done around our condo. Well Ron was just totally unprofessional. He never told us what anything would cost, had seemingly no technical knowledge of how to work in a highrise (metal 'studs" concrete floors)
We arranged to have him 'insulate' sliding doors and install 'floor boards' I guess they would be called, into the floor where the flooring material transitioned to a different material, we provided Aluminium "boards" for this which Ron took (and ended up keeping and never returning).
Ron didn't have any knowledge about the sliding door we wanted fixed and felt that if he put on a new handle all would be better, because the door would shut tighter as he put it. (the doors ended up needing all the cauk and seals replaces and the frame aligned, when this was preformed, the door handles that where on the door worked again)
When I asked my husband how much this was going to cost it occuried to him that Ron never said, my husband called Ron (who by the way never even showed up for the original appointment and had to be reminded to show up via phone hee, hee). Ron charged $65 for the first hour and $45 for everything after. Well this scarred the heck out of me since Ron didn't seem to have a clue, I didn't feel like paying him to make a bunch of mistakes, fumble around, and learn how to do stuff and bill us for his new experiences (:
Ron then called a couple of days later at 8:30 in the morning on a Saturday (not very business like in my opinion) and tried to make arrangements to come and install the floor boards July 4th weekend. I told Ron I would have my husband call.
My husband called Ron and told him the building rules didn't allow work on the weekend and cancled the job, Ron agreed to return the boards, he never did.
Windy City Handyman=bad experience.
