Where we came from

The idea for Mister Handy came to Bill Barber as he was stroking his mustache one morning, pondering ways to make a greater impact on our community and meet small-project needs. He’d been hearing rumblings from neighbors, complaining about the trouble finding handyman services they could count on.

We needed to look for more creative ways to sustain our business while servicing the construction needs of our clients. We’d been getting requests for smaller repairs and maintenance, and recognized the need for this type of contractor in our community. Someone who can come to a client’s home or business, and who can perform an assorted range of repairs and projects — the kind of projects that can be completed in a relatively short period of time.

Mister Handy is a division of GBA, Inc. General Contractors. We have been in the construction business for 25 years in Rapid City and the surrounding area, with many more years of experience and problem solving under our toolbelts.

Our friendly technicians are skilled in just about anything you can throw at them. If you manage to find something outside of their scope, never fear — they’ve got the resources they need for backup!

Our Team

Our team of technicians are always at the ready, with a helping hand and a friendly smile. We are fully trained with a broad skill set, and if your job requires licensed contractors outside of our scope, we will coordinate the team you need!
