About this Helpout

Experienced and old enough to help you troubleshoot and repair almost any kind of problem in your house or office. I'm a electrician who became a handyman in response to my customers demands. More than 13 years ago, I started to remodel bathrooms, kitchens, basements, install steam showers (See my picture), even wine cellars, telling them "I've never done it, but I'm sure I can do it". So I had to learn carpentry (removing and installing walls, doors, trims, etc), plumbing ( Installing bathtubs, toilets, faucets, etc), painting, installing ceramic tiles, drywall, insulation, panels, etc.
Additionally, I've helped some customers with crooked doors, LED cabinet lights, fixing appliances (dryers, ranges, etc), repairing cars (brakes, starters, alternators, etc), garage door openers,  computer problems, installing software (You should try Ubuntu OS) and even I've cooked for them, for free of course, just for the joy of sharing. So give me a call, whether to ask any question, to fix what your husband repaired (Just kidding...) or if you have a problem of any kind. I'll be happy to talk to you, most of my customers say I talk too much, and that my music is weird, but, nobody is perfect, right? Don't worry, I won't charge you just for asking. I'll guide you, step by step, till the problem is solved.
 If you have any comment, suggestion, just be positive, I promise to listen to all of them, carefully, with cognition and the best disposition.
Thanks for reading,

About Hector

- Almost 20 years of experience troubleshooting electrical problems in my country
- Almost 2 years working as an maintenance engineer in a hotel in Itasca, IL
- Almost 13  years self employed, handyman in Chicago land
- Still learning every single day
So that you know, I'm from Peru, I'm fluent in Spanish (Of course!), English (Do you think I am?) Italian (I need to practice it), and speak a little of Portuguese (I love it), French (still learning) and German (Acht!). I learnt how to cook about 10 years ago , and became a vegetarian (Trying to be a vegan still) about 5 years ago, after watching "Forks Over Knives", which I highly recommend it to all of you. Lets save the planet! I know what you're thinking: I'm in the wrong trade. Maybe! But I have a passion for cooking and helping solving problems.
