He was recommended here twice!
I just can't imagine hiring a 78yo "handyman", and letting him climb a ladder in my house. Hire a professional and spend the extra money to get the job done right. Either that, or spend the money on a lawyer when the old fool sues you, cause he fell off the ladder, and can't enjoy the pleasure of his wife's company.

He was recommended by 2 people here. I didn't know he was that old until he showed up & we got to talking. I was surprised that he didn't have his own ladder and he said he just has an SUV (not a truck? or box trailer?). Then he asked for a flashlight (I gave him a small LED one that I had just bought) and I wondered what had I gotten myself into.

His wife is dead.
