The Portage Park Handyman
Rich Escallier, a Portage Park resident since 1988 and home handyman
since 1978, offers a large range of indoor/ outdoor repairs and improvements.
Because he is a self-employed, independent handyman, he can perform services
at prices far below those of franchised handyman services. Rich brings
over 25 years of experience in the home repair field. As a former owner
of several apartment buildings, he is largely self-taught, learning the
ins and outs of repairing and refurbishing buildings since 1978.
Rich has taught home repair and maintenance classes since 2006 as part of
adult continuing education programs at the
City Colleges of Chicago. Watch the
Truman College course catalog for
his upcoming classes beginning in Summer 2012.
His most extensive remodeling job was completed on his current residence,
a 90- year-old Portage Park home which he refurbished from top to bottom,
including building a second story addition.
