Whether you need your cracked plaster repaired, a fresh coat of paint applied to your home, or remodeling in your bathroom or kitchen, customers can trust Handyman Connection to make sure home improvements are done right. Jim Kline, owner of the Handyman Connection franchise in Tulsa, says, “Our craftsmen are professionals with at least 10 years of experience.” The company specializes in projects that include light plumbing and electrical, carpentry, painting, decks and fences, drywall repair, ceramic tile and kitchen, bath, attic and basement remodels. Working with Handyman Connection takes the worry out of home improvements.
Aside from Handyman Connection’s quality home improvement is its great reputation. The company has received the Better Business Bureau’s Excellence in Customer Service Award and is a member of the Tulsa Chamber of Commerce. “Handyman Connection does more remodeling projects than any other company in the country,” Kline mentions. “Handyman Connection has over 17,000 satisfied home and business owners in the Tulsa area.” The company charges by the project instead of by the hour, and a written estimate and guarantee are provided for each job.
Handyman Connection guarantees that its work is only done by highly-qualified professionals. Background checks are conducted prior to hiring employees, and the company has in excess of $2 million in insurance coverage. In addition to the manufacturers’ warranties provided on products used in each project, Handyman Connection guarantees all of its work for a minimum of one year. Prior to the beginning of each project, clients are provided with contracts that list all labor and material costs associated with the job.
Handyman Connection is neither a design nor decorating service. Kline and his employees encourage clients to make color, pattern and style selections for any materials that will be used in home improvement projects. Clients are encouraged to take Handyman Connection estimate sheets to suppliers of their choice for help in making final selections. Discounts are even available to clients just for hiring Handyman Connection.
Building, repairing, maintaining or staining decks are just a few of the home improvement projects taken on by Handyman Connection.
As a subsidiary of The Franchise Company, a leader and innovator in franchising across North America, Handyman Connection locations are individually-owned. Kline owns and manages the only Handyman Connection franchise in Oklahoma. The parent company has been built carefully over the last 15 years, and its brands, as well as its management of those brands, have been exceptionally successful.

Kline advises homeowners to educate themselves before taking on home improvement projects. Regardless of the company hired to perform the work, demand a written contract specifying exactly what the total costs will be for labor and your selected materials. Make sure you are aware of all the costs involved beforehand. Do not pay any money for labor or materials before the work is done. Check with the Better Business Bureau to make sure the company you hire is reliable. Finally, call Handyman Connection for experienced craftsmen, quality workmanship and service you can trust. Hiring Handyman Connection takes the worry out of home improvement. Quality craftsmanship is guaranteed.
