Recommended: Plumber/Handyman

Our companion email list, the Cleveland Park Listserv, is a treasure trove of recommendations. Need a plumber at 10am on Sunday or an electrician who can wire up your home fusion reactor? The Cleveland Park Listserv will  let you find that person.

While it would be overwhelming to post all of the recommendations for home repair people on All Life Is Local, we wanted to share with you, on a periodic basis, the best recommendations that have been posted on the Cleveland Park Listserv. You'll be able to search All Life Is Local for "contractor," "plumber," "auto body shop" -- whatever you need. The search box, in case you have trouble finding it, is to the right and down a bit.

We had a non-draining bathtub problem solved by plumber/handyman Kyle Habel, 240-821-2514. Kyle was formerly with a big plumbing company and is now an independent contractor. We found him about a year ago when we had a drain problem and called several plumbing companies and found we'd have to wait several days before a visit from any of them, but Kyle was available the next day -- even though it was a Saturday. He charges by time and material, so there's no danger of having to pay a big, fixed fee for what turns out to be 15 minutes of work. He's also pleasant and courteous.
