About Us

In 2001, Smart & Handy started as a handyman service and, in response to our clients' needs for help with larger projects, we have expanded to include general contractor (GC) services. We are proudly certified as Certified Aging in Place Specialists (CAPS), using universal design techniques. We serve all of Orange County and surrounding counties and will work on residential, commercial and industrial properties. Smart & Handy has the knowledge and craftsmanship to handle our clients' needs, from a simple picture hanging through to a full remodel. Our philosophy is to use a professional, "common-sense" approach to every job we take on. Dave Gould, Smart & Handy's owner, grew up in the business world and made sure to learn all he could. His experience with several family businesses up through Fortune 500 companies has shown Dave the most effective business practices, which he uses in running Smart & Handy. Dave understands what it takes to build and maintain a successful business and therefore has high expectations of his employees and subcontractors, with whom he has had long-standing relationships. He personally manages the general contracting projects from start to finish, using his skills in communicating effectively with clients to ensure the finished project is exactly to their specifications.  Every employee of Smart & Handy, including the owners, uphold a high level of professionalism, build lasting relationships and always ensure client satisfaction. Smart & Handy doesn't just show up and do the work. We educate and empower our clients to make the best decisions for their home and office projects. Smart & Handy offers free estimates for our residential clients, and low cost estimates for the commercial and industrial market. Whether it's a small handyman project around the home or business or a complete renovation, Smart & Handy's promise to our clients is that our work will be so great, you'll want to be a client for life!
