John Charbonneau is 4th. generation San Franciscan raised in Marin County. He began his construction career in the 80's remodeling homes in Marin. Later, he took a position at Jackson's Hardware in San Rafael where he stayed for 10 years. He went on from there to become a Certified Home Inspector, owning and operating one of the largest and most successful home inspection firms in the State, performing nearly 100 inspections per week! After a career as a Home Inspector, Defect Recognition Specialist, Certified Mold Inspector and Moisture Intrusion Specialist, John spent some time as the Outside Sales Manager at Mountain Hardware in Truckee, CA. before returning home to Marin County and starting North Bay Handyman, Inc.

North Bay Handyman and Truckee/Tahoe Handyman were combined in 2022 and the Sacramento Valley and Sierra Foothills were added later that year and became

It is against the law for a handyman to contract or perform services at your home for a fee of $500 or more, combined labor and materials. Ask your handyman for his license number and ask for a Certificate of Insurance listing you and your property as additional insured. If your handyman is not properly licensed and insured, you are taking a huge risk. The potential consequences for you and the handyman are great. Don't be scammed and don't get burned
