Kim Macfarlan   For the past ten+ years, any time I have a home project that I cannot do myself, I call Brian (The Project Guy). He does excellent work, is very thorough and meticulous. He’s also friendly, smart and creative. He has hung ceiling fans, installed new faucets, fixed my broken fence, hung new doors, installed landscape lighting, hung large pictures … the list goes on. I highly recommend him for your home to-do list!

J. Satey   Removed old caulking on under-mounted sink, tightened the sink to the granite countertop and re-caulked and reinstalled the garbage disposal. Very prompt response when I initially called to receive an estimate. Quick to schedule me in. Prompt arrival on service day. Knowledgeable of repairs. Clean and quickly completed the job with very high quality. I have had trouble in the past finding a good general repair person.  Brian was quick, responsive, knowledgeable; we will definitely use again and recommend.

Ms. Locklear   He is amazing. He did everything from crown molding to installing a toilet, mailbox, curtain rods and shower rods, front door handles, ceiling fan, etc. He has done just about everything around the home. He is always on time and his prices are very reasonable.

Lori Thorne  Painted laundry room, installed shelving and a peg board in garage, four curtain rods, one chandelier and three pendant lights, additional crown moulding in powder room and small hallway. I read a review on  ‘The Project Guy’ in the Angie’s List monthly magazine and decided to try him out. Brian is just delightful. He is very personable, courteous, punctual and the ultimate professional. He does a fabulous job and I will call on him anytime I have a ‘honey-do’ that needs to be taken care of!

Mary Elizabeth Peterson  Brian tackled a bunch of mundane and some complicated tasks after we moved into our home. Replacing light fixtures, assembling furniture, installing door locks, towel bars etc. Brian is great to work with and has a great mind for problem solving! I will count on him again for sure!

Penny Feldser  We moved to South Charlotte in the fall of last year and have regularly used Brian as our handyman for jobs around the house as neither of us are handy at all. Brian is very responsive, uses email from his smart phone which is very convenient for busy people. He is usually available next day and has not had any problem completing jobs that we have asked. The different things we have had him do have been installing baby gates, hanging pictures, installing light fixtures, etc. He has hung very large/heavy mirrors. I attempted a weekend job myself and it was a complete disaster, Brian came the next morning to help fix and completed the job for me. We would highly recommend Brian for any job around your house.

Sandra Burke   Completed a long list of household items, including the installation of a ceiling fan, hanging 12 – 14 pictures and mirrors in various rooms of the house, repositioning of closet shelves, repair of a piano stool, hanging wall cabinets in various rooms, repairing  the deck floor, installing grab bars in the shower and MUCH MORE! I’m often hesitant to give too glowing a review on Angie’s List, for fear that the reader will not believe me if I am too complimentary.  But in this case, I must say nothing but the best about Brian the Project Guy!  How I wish I had found him when I first moved to the Charlotte area, but I’m certainly glad I finally did.  Brian arrived when he promised, was pleasant but not overbearing, worked steadily and professionally, and PERFECTLY completed every one of the 17 items I had on my list of things to do! All that, and at a perfectly reasonable hourly price. I will be using him again whenever I have projects to complete around the house, with the assurance that I’ve found an honest, meticulous professional to handle the jobs!  Believe me, you won’t go wrong in hiring Brian!

John Gray  Designed & build a tree house platform. Originally, Brian came out to my home and estimated the job. We exchanged a few emails on design. Brian gave me a shopping list. When I was at Home Depot, Brian answered his phone so I could buy the correct product. Brian showed up with all the tools at the time he said he would. The platform was built in the time & cost he said.  He let me help and work alongside him.

Sharon Robb  Wood shelving built in unfinished basement – drywall one wall. Responsive and Punctual for quote – availability excellent. Arrived on time – completed work in one day – shelving was exactly as discussed -excellent and professional work – start to finish. Professional – confident – capable. Hire with confidence!

Jay Witherspoon  Replaced ceiling fan on 18′ high ceiling, kitchen sink and disposal. I contacted Brian via his web site and provided a list of the projects that I needed to have done, then via e-mail we efficiently set a time for the work to be done. Brian showed up on time, with a 16′ step ladder that he rented and replaced our existing fan with a new larger fan in the two story family room. All went well despite the difficulty of the height and the heavy fan. In the kitchen Brian replaced the old sink with a new stainless steel sink along with the faucet and disposal. This was a little more complicated than expected because the existing hole for the sink was not quite large enough, so Brian had to cut the hole in the solid surface counter ~3/4″ wider with a jig saw to make room for the new sink, after that it was a good fit and all went smoothly. Bottom line is that Brian was very efficient with time and despite some heavy lifting and surprises with the sink, everything was completed smoothly. I will call Brian again in the future and recommend him highly to anyone looking for a good handyman!

Nanci Coia  Odd jobs both inside and out: under door seals, house numbers hung outside broken closets fixed shelves hung in closets, silicone seal around tubs/showers redone, threshold wood coming loose – tacked in place   Great experience with The Project Guy! He is punctual, communicative (several suggestions via email) and then, ran down my “honey-do” list and knocked it all out. Several small projects that I couldn’t get done. Needed a couple closets fixed because the racks etc broke; also hung ceiling hook, doors sealed, numbers put up above front door, and a couple of shelves put up in the closet. He measure for me for some pull out shelves for my kitchen and I’ll order those and have him come back. What I like is that he stayed in touch, showed up when he said he would, and then ran through the punch list and knocked it all out at once. Well done and let me tell you…. this one is a KEEPER!

Debbie Oliver  I had faded shutters on my house. Another company on Angie’s list quoted me over the phone without even coming out and they were 10 X’s higher. The Project Guy came out looked at all the shutters and said he could match the stain without having to do all the shutters. He removed the shutters and returned them a few days later. They look great and match the remaining shutters we did not restain. Great work at a reasonable price. I will use him again!

Michael Long  Rehang wooden fence gate, remove wire shelf in laundry room and install cabinets, 2 new faucets in master bathroom   Brian is a great guy to work with! He was extremely professional from the initial email contact throughout the work. He came out for an estimate within a day or 2 of our first email and scheduled the work for a week later. We are beyond pleased with the care he took getting everything done, the finished look, and his willingness to let us watch and learn from what he did (so maybe we can do the work ourselves next time!). He finished our list in just half a day and I still look in my laundry room once a day to admire how great it looks now! We will not hesitate for a second to call him back for our next project!

Lynne Koontz  I needed to have a toilet fixed that was running and I had a huge shade installed. I found Brian on Angie’s List to do various handyman projects. He fixed a toilet and installed a 107″ shade in my kitchen. He is very nice, prompt and his prices are reasonable.  I will have him back when I have more projects. Painting, installing a medicine cabinet, installing grab bars   I originally hired Brian to install a grab bar in a shower, but when I saw that he painted, I had him come back to paint a small bathroom. He did both jobs well, and was reasonable priced. He charges by the hour and he does not dawdle. I had him come in to take down a bathroom wall mirror and put up a medicine cabinet. He aso installed a couple of mirrors for me. He is always polite and professional, which I appreciate.

Pete C  We installed 1600 sq ft of hardwood floors and had to have all the trim reinstalled.  Brian came by and installed all the trim, caulked and painted. Brian did a great job, he is very professional, courteous and was always on time. I would highly recommend him for any project you may have. I will use him again.

Carol Montuoro  I had quite a bit of artwork, and a large clock to be hung on walls and various minor things to be fixed around the house, I also had a platform built for dogs to use on the deck. Overall experience was great. I would call The Project Guy whenever I have more projects. Brian was on time and very courteous, he also knew what he was doing, and had all the tools to accomplish the projects.
Sometimes I have an assortment of projects for him.  I believe this one pertained to replacing a fence post and another odd job.  The Project Guy (Brian) is such a wonderful handyman.  He is on my speed dial and is the person I call whenever I have projects around the house — such as  hanging artwork, changing light fixtures, installing ceiling fan, fixing a broken fence post, building a dog ramp from the deck to yard for elderly dog.   I would not use anyone else. Excellent!

Elizabeth Craig  Brian was punctual, professional, and knowledgeable. He recommended an inexpensive fix for our water-damaged back splash, and knew immediately how to best repair our aging fence in our back yard. His costs were low and he worked quickly. I liked the fact that his company is very accessible online (my preferred manner of contact.)

Deborah Barton  Brian remodeled our pantry, replacing wire shelving with custom wooden shelves and added lighting. Brian is always punctual, professional and friendly. He went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. He has an eye for design and detail that’s helpful when you don’t quite know what you want. He helped us decide the best design for the pantry for easy access and make it easier to see everything at a glance. He even brought in a consultant (at his own expense) to get the lighting right. We couldn’t have asked for better service.
Brian removed the molding, screen and doors from a screened porch, painted the wood and installed new screen and molding. He also repaired, painted and rehung the doors.   Brian has done several handyman jobs for us. He is always punctual, professional and thorough. This job was exceptional from start to finish!

Rod Turnham   Attic Stair Replacement –  I engaged The Project Guy to replace a broken fold-down attic stair. He showed up precisely on time and got the job done competently and professionally. The newly-installed unit looks very good and performs perfectly. I WILL be hiring Brian for future projects, and recommending him personally to my neighbors as well as here. I cannot think of any way in which my experience could have been any better.

Erin Herring  Brian fit me in after a cancellation to do caulking around the house, including a large kitchen job where granite had just been installed. He also fixed a wooden blind and patched some cracks in drywall.   Brian is always on time, very prepared, hard-working and great at what he does.  He even showed me how to patch the cracks so I would know in the future!  I’m always happy with Brian’s work and work ethic – it doesn’t get better than this!  Brian is available by phone and by email to make things easy for me, and capable beyond measure.  This was the 4th or 5th time he’s been to help me this year and I highly recommend him!

Dawn P  The Project Guy is just the ticket for completing all those vexing, time consuming “to-do’s” around the home. He quickly returned my email with a call, then arranged to meet with me to go through the list. He’s professional and thoughtful- what’s more-he’s on time, responsive and a craftsman, no matter the task. And did I mention he’s fast? Talk about value for the money. He also offered to drill hole in a tree stump I’ve been meaning to treat for removal (no task is left undone). I will certainly use him for future projects and have already referred him to my neighbors.

Gerry Smith  Job was to install a vent from an over range microwave to the outside and then install a new microwave. This required cutting a 2’x2 ‘ opening in the wall, partially removing a stud and boxing in an opening for the new vent and cutting a hole through the vinyl siding; then installing the vent and a sheet rock patch over the interior wall opening.   Due to the installation of a new gas range, I needed the over range microwave to vent to the outside. Brian Tenny, The Project Guy, arrived on time, worked in a timely and efficient manner and completed the job as promised. The job required evaluating potential solutions on the fly. Brian asked me if I agreed with his suggestions before he proceeded. I found him to be very competent, friendly and cooperative. He has a fully equipped truck with the required tools. Brian can do a variety of jobs. I’m happy to have found someone close by who can help me catch up on projects from time to time. I intend to use him again.

Karen Johnston  He replaced all of the screens on my screened in porch. He also built for me a decorative barrier that prevents my cats from crawling up my screens. He designed it from scratch and made it fit my porch.  He was very reasonably priced. I had three quotes and he was by far the most reasonably priced. He did a great job and it was super. I liked his willingness to work with the project. He worked to try and stay within a budget and it was great.

Marc and Lorraine Heighton  Brian brought his tools and helped me hang five single interior doors and a set of interior French doors. I was upgrading/replacing existing doors so the challenge was in sizing the doors to fit and making all the hardware match the existing door jams. Brian was great to work with. He promptly showed up about ten minutes prior to the appointment time we set, and worked diligently the entire time with a short break for lunch. All the doors fit like a glove! After painting them, you would never know that they weren’t the original doors in the house. I highly recommend Brian for your home.

Jessica Hoshko  The Project Guy Inc. did miscellaneous things for me, he shortened my chair, he installed a flagpole, he secured my gas logs to the brick, removed a chandelier, etc. I have used him in the past. His prices are reasonable. He is definitely punctual and very good with communicating back and forth via e-mails to figure out what needs to be done. I have been satisfied with the work that he has done for me. I have not had any problems with him; he has been very pleasant.

L.R.   Caulked windows and door, replaced strip molding for storm door, built fireplace mantel. I sent Brian a picture to go by for a fireplace mantel. Brian showed up at the scheduled time, and demonstrated how to change the look of the mantel with a variety of molding and different layers before a final design was decided upon. The finished product was a great looking mantel — I just need to prime and paint. Brian took the time to clean up after the job, both inside the house and  outside in the garage from using a table saw. Flexibility, knowledgeable and very nice to deal with. Keep up the good work!

Margaret Bujake   Had to have a temporary fence put up along the back of my house to keep a nosy dog away from the air conditioning unit/live wires. Brian always shows up on time and does the job professionally. I have used his handyman services a couple of times now and am always pleased w/ his work. I will certainly call on him again.

Mark Pearce  A slow leak under our kitchen sink resulted in the particle board flooring to become water logged, ruined and smelly.  Brian showed up at the agreed upon time and did a FANTASTIC job repairing flooring.  The price he charged was very fair.  I’m confident that other unscrupulous handymen would have charged much more and not taken the time to do the job correctly.  Brian shows a sincere desire to do the job right.  He is very “old fashioned” in that if his name is associated with the job, there will be no compromise in quality.  Guys like him are rare these days. I highly recommend him. Brian completely cut out the old flooring, added extra bracing then installed substantial replacement flooring. The work was meticulous. He then covered the flooring with tiled, vinyl floor covering. It looks great.

David Simpson   Replacement of front door; installation of storm door. Brian did a great job working with a slightly non-standard opening. He kept me informed as work progressed. Great experience from start to finish! Great value: professional work, without trying to get me to do unnecessary things. We had to use the existing door frame, instead of the pre-hung frame, due to transom above the door. Brian did a great job installing the door into the existing frame.

Mark Krein  “The Project Guy”, was very responsive and prompt. He performed the work in an excellent and complete manner, cleaned the work area thoroughly, and charged a fair price. I would highly recommend The Project Guy and plan to use him for all projects that I can’t handle myself.  Brian is a very versatile and highly skilled craftsman. He has done drywall, tile and cabinetry for me — all at excellent quality and a fair price. Brian is a great communicator and planner and obviously takes great pride in his work. I would highly recommend Brian, “The Project Guy”. Brian stopped by to get familiar with the job and materials that would be required. He took photos and made detailed notes. When he showed up to perform the work, he was well prepared and wasted no time in completing the job. Everything Brian did looked fantastic. You won’t go wrong with the Project Guy!

Todd Zandy  I really appreciated Brian coming out and installing the TV and fans. I was moving into a new home and multi-tasking move in schedules with these installations and furniture deliveries.  Brian was able to work quickly while I was away from the home to alleviate some of the stress from me. The TV and fans look great, money well worth spent.

George and Sandy Murphy  The Project Guy replaced the kitchen sink that was leaking. He’s put in fans, he’s fixed the flooring and the popped up siding and stuff like that. I’ve used him a lot of times. He’s very good. I would recommend him to other people. My son used him and he was very happy with him. He does all small jobs. He does a good job. His price is great. If something goes wrong and if it takes him longer and if he feels it’s a learning experience for him, he won’t charge the extra. He’s a great guy. I would use him again in the future.

Julie King  Mr. Tenny fixed a closet door, fixed the hinge on a bedroom door, replaced a bedroom door, built and installed two sets of built in shelves, fixed some molding, replaced a window, and re-caulked some areas in the bathroom. He was very prompt, and very professional. He charges by the hour, and I must say he worked very efficiently and did not waste one second of the time I was paying for. I would hire him again in a second.

Kathy I   He rebuilt all the shelves in a closet using some of the existing boards and material. He was absolutely awesome! He did everything I wanted him to do and more. We communicated through email what the materials he would use ahead of time. He sent me a design so I could see a preview. He had all the correct equipment he needed to do the work. He was very quick and cleaned up well after himself. It was all a fabulous experience.
