Our Handyman Services

“I can’t call a stranger to come hang a 75 pound chandelier in my foyer, what if it falls on my kids head? I trust only my guys at Advance Design!” said a client from Crystal Lake in 2005. That single phone call officially launched Advance Handyman Services, and we’ve been caring for our clients homes ever since.

Call on us anytime to care for your home! And if you’re a remodeling client, you’ll receive special promotions reserved just for you when you subscribe to our bi-weekly e-letter. Just one of the lifelong benefits of becoming a client of Advance Design!

“Now that most of the larger jobs have been tackled on our 80-plus year home, we’ve been able to utilize Advance’s Handyman services several times: they’ve been quick, professional and very easy to work with. They’ve made maintaining our home so much easier. If you’re not into DIY, calling Advance Design’s Handyman service is the way to go.”
