In October of 1999, I, David Budlong, the owner and operator of Ace Handyman Services of Santa Barbara, quit my job and set out on my own as a handyman. With many years of customer service in retail and automotive service, I was determined to create a customer oriented business doing something I am passionate about. Fixing and building items around the home and office has always been fun and interesting to me.

I have three employees, Me, Myself & I! Four if you want to count Maxwell my canine companion.


This allows for personable interaction between you and me. It also makes sure that the job is done right the first time.

I pride myself in my punctuality, integrity, knowledge and fairness. Many ask me what I do, and my usual response is anything and everything except wall paper, did that once and I never have to do it again.

My office hours are 9am to 5pm Tuesday through Friday, I welcome your call at (805) 569-9188 during those hours to chat and schedule an appointment.
