Handy Land

The last time you tried repairing a leaky faucet, Waterworld II broke out on the screen. (And fridge. And stove. And tiles.)

Next doomsday, cast Handy Dan the Handyman.

SMU alum Lou Olerio handles projects big and small — from remodeling bathrooms and building gazebos to installing appliances and hanging flat-screens. Handy Dan also offers free (yes, free) home energy efficiency audits that take less than two hours. Of course, he’ll also tackle any problem areas (solar-powered attic fan, anyone?).

Free quotes are available on the company’s site; just fill out the form and you’ll get a response within 24 hours. You can even schedule an appointment online.

Bye-bye, meltdowns.
