Barrington Fix-IT Shoppe, Inc was started 1988 part time to help supplement my income but after two years I became so busy that I left my full time job as foreman for a glass company to start my own business full time in 1990.
I have been primarily working in the Barrington Area since then and love the community atmosphere of Barrington.
I have many repeat customers from the beginning who have been with me for 27 years. I enjoy what I do and I am honest and trustworthy. Most of my business is through referrals. That's the best way and you get the nicest customers that way. I have been a Barrington Chamber Member for the last 15 years. I used to install for Seigles until they moved out of town and now I install for another big building center in Lake Zurich.
Customers will call me on many different kinds of jobs. I will come and give a free estimate. Most people will make a list and we go over the job, I usually charge by the job not the hour. My prices stay firm, there is no hidden surprises. My quote is my quote unless something out of the ordinary happens which is always discussed with the homeowner first.
I prefer doing estimates on Saturdays, but will come out in the evenings or during the day whatever fits into the customers schedule. I do all the work myself and I am very punctual. If the job requires I will bring a helper. There are no surprises as to who will show up to do the work.
