Born in Athens, Georgia, and raised in Houston, Texas (he got here as fast as he could), Grage Deese is the eldest of three boys.  His father was a master carpenter and instilled in Grage his love for carpentry work and home remodeling.

After having worked for Houston Habitat for Humanity for several years as a lead crew superintendent, Grage realized that his heartfelt dream of owning his own business was a very tangible possibility.

So, he launched out on his own in 2002 and Can-Do-Handyman was born. In January 2003, they were officially doing business and just three months later he had the incorporation paperwork  drawn up and became Can-Do-Handyman, L.L.C. in April of that same year. Grage has over 20 years of experience in the construction field.

The company prides itself on meeting the simplest of needs to much larger endeavors such as remodels and commercial build-outs.

Can-Do-Handyman LLC, was one of the few reputable companies available “on the scene” after Hurricane Rita hit the Gulf coast in September 2005. Grage’s company worked tirelessly for about nine months down in the Port Arthur, Texas area while still maintaining a full workload here in the Greater Metropolitan Houston area.

Since its inception, there has not been one day of down-time, other than that due to inclement weather. They have maintained a full and consistent workload ever since.

In October of 2011 Grage married his high school sweetheart, Tricia.  He moved to Temple and launched his company in the Central Texas area, providing the same level of service to the Central Texas communities that Can-Do-Handyman has become well known for. As the company began to thrive, the focus of the business turned to the commercial services and has grown in this area in a way that they would have never imagined. “We still have our residential customers, but we do focus on the commercial customer base that we have become to know and work closely with”, states Tricia, “We had a vision for the company to service most of the State of Texas and that has come to pass.”

Says Grage, “We give credit where credit is due and that is to God who honors His word by giving great success to anything we put our hands on that is committed to Him. He has granted our company abundant favor and success.”

In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will establish your path. Proverbs 3:5-6.

Grage enjoys playing golf, softball, and fishing, as well as watching several sports as a spectator. Tricia enjoys cooking, camping, and being Gigi to their grandchildren. They both love spending time with family and being active in the community.
