our mission

"Nothing makes me happier than getting a referral from a previous customer, or better yet, getting a repeat job years later. There is no better compliment or testimonial than that!"

Cody Patrick

"The House Doctor"


1995 Cody Patrick started doing small home repairs for local residents, while also working at a local hardware store and attending Southeastern Louisiana University. His side business quickly grew, and The House Doctor was born. 

1998 Cody received his degree in Criminal Justice, but by then, business was so good that he decided to continue with that, rather than attend law school as he had originally intended. He began focusing mainly on painting and pressure washing as the business continued to evolve. 

2001 Cody joined the Tangipahoa Home Builders Association, and soon after, he did his first “new construction” job with Reed Construction. Since then, Cody has worked numerous new construction jobs for several different builders in Tangipahoa and neighboring parishes, while continuing to do repaints for repeat customers and new referrals.  

2014 The business grew again, and what started out as a single handyman, is now a professional painting team which includes Cody and his brother, Sean, who has been working for The House Doctor off and on since 1998, as well as a couple of newcomers, and a few extras who help out when needed.
