Who Is Alexi?
Alexi Malenky was born in New York City, but has been living in the Bay Area since 1987.
After working as a cook at a popular diner in Berkeley for 5 years, he started apprenticing with Eureka Valley Construction, and spent 13 years with Jim Haedt and his crew learning on the job every aspect of building houses, from the foundation to the roofing!
Alexi's handyman business started in 2004, and his first job was finishing the "Blue House", where he lives!
A short list of Alexi's skills would include foundation work, fence-building, decking, installing doors and windows, framing and carpentry, sheetrock, painting, tile, insulation, flooring, installing cabinetry and appliances, plumbing, electrical, and repair work in all of these areas ... just to name a few.
Alexi is well-versed in green building techniques and familiar with the range of non-toxic materials available for most jobs.
He charges on a sliding scale. Talk to us for more information about that!
What clients have to say about Alexi?
"Thank you Alexi for your expert workmanship and delightful demeanor. It was great having you here creating a small piece of the Hearst Castle right here in my bathroom." - Marvin
"Dear Alexi, Thank you so much for working on my deck. It is lovely, wonderful! I am looking forward to next summer when I can enjoy sitting out with a cup of coffee. One of my neighbors admired your work and was impressed with your energy and focus. If you ever need a reference -- I'm your champion. Thanks again -- I am happy!" - Natalie
"Thank You! Sorry when you left today we were busy and I didn't get a chance to say a proper "thank you." Thanks for your work this week. I really appreciated your attention to detail and suggestions for completing the work. I hope we have an opportunity to have you help us again." - Jane, Susanne & Daniel
"Alexi Malenky is our go-to guy for the full spectrum of fix-it, build-it, rainproof-it, install-it, "Jeez-I-can't-do-that-let's-call-someone-who-can" construction work. Among about 15 other successful projects he's done for us (all on-time and on -- or under -- budget), Alexi built me a gorgeous, rock-solid, fully soundproofed voice over studio (and this, literally across the street from the BART tracks!) where I basically spend about 80% of my time these days. He's astoundingly capable, remarkably neat, painstakingly honest and generally awesome and we've recommended him wholeheartedly to many many similarly 'un-handy' friends. He and Corey are a pleasure to work with and we'll happily vouch for Alexi's Handyman Service any day of the week." – Josh & Liz
"Alexi, Thank you for the beautiful work. We are delighted with our stove hood and beautiful dining room ceiling!" – Alesia
"Dear Alexi, Thank you so much for the work that you do. What may appear as "small jobs" make our quality of life so much better, and I am so grateful that Allison introduced me to you and Corey. Your work makes a daily difference in our lives!" – Manisha & Rajiv
