Hello and welcome.  My name is Slade Hartwell, owner and CEO of Handyman Slade. Handyman Slade, LLC is a locally owned and operated family business based in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. We are registered as a Florida LLC, and all of our work is covered by general liability insurance. Our service area covers all of Palm Beach County and our mission is to provide high quality, specialized commercial and home improvement services to our clients.  

I am a former US Air Force VA (decorated) and NASA Engineer and Calibrations Lab Manager, who together with a team of professionals in all areas from General Contractors to masonry, paint, electric, and plumbing are able to offer dependable, trustworthy, professional, quality, and timely services to our clients.  For your convenience, we are fluent in English, Spanish and German.  

A little background about us... my father, Lee Hartwell, is a General Contractor and I grew up watching him build many commercial and residential projects along the years; and today I choose to follow in his footsteps... honoring everything he's shown me along the way.
