The million dollar question. We started Apartment Therapy with the intention of answering this question, and are still struggling to put together a good roster of handymen. This is the moment. Every handyman you provide or find will be put into our Stores (and services) Guide for eternity. I'm in the process of trying to find a local handyman to come to my small Soho apartment and fix various things that are in need of repair: install some molding where wall meets floor; touch up painting near floor after carpeting was removed; properly mount surge protector box on wall; some caulking... The list goes on. Probably 5-6 hours work. Do you know a good resource for finding quality handmen? Many advertise on Craig's list, but how do you know if the work is good? Does any website exist that lists pre-screened handymen, or ones with reviews? Thanks, Bennett
