Handyman? No way.
This guy and his crew of college-age men with no experience or training, should limit their business offerings to the most basic landscaping.

Anything any more difficult than spreading mulch or hauling rock is beyond them.

It is ironic that this guy advertises in a church bulletin. He runs an unethical business. He is incompetent and arrogant.

He talks a big game and bids as if he'll do quality work. Then he takes shortcuts and does inferior work.

Calling him a handyman is a joke.

Here’s a tip: stay away from Bob Lotz aka Bob’s Outdoor Services of Collinsville, IL.
He is incompetent and unscrupulous. He is an example of what gives the independent handy man moniker a bad name – not to be trusted.
We hired him to relocate the downspout in a section of guttering. He made the situation worse as water poured from both ends of the gutter. It is so bad under the area where the downspout was originally that a bucket was needed to capture the water funneled through the remaining hole in the gutter. On the opposite end of the gutter, where the downspout was relocated, the hole was too large and water poured down the OUTSIDE of the downspout. When I attempted to call him, he never responded. He didn’t stand behind his work. Instead, he hid and never returned my calls. I had to call a professional gutter company to replace the gutter section he had botched.
Bob had also been hired to paint a chimney flue cap. But later he withdrew that bid after determining he lacked the equipment and personnel to do the work. He didn’t have a ladder tall enough to get to the top of the two-story house and his workers didn’t want to go on the roof.
His workers are untrained college-age youths.
Still, he had the audacity to try to charge us more than his bid.

Shoddy workmanship. Takes easy way. Does not stand behind his work. Not worth hiring.
