Geoff is not only the lovliest bloke you'll ever meet, he loves his job and produces excellent results. He built and installed some bespoke cupboards and shelves for us in unique spaces. He walked us through the whole process and helped us with all the decisions. And - bonus for everyone - he wasn't satisfied until it was all perfect and to our liking.

Seriously so impressed by professionalism, work ethic, quality of work, expertise and advice when i was designing my bathroom. I really cant fault ANYTHING about Peter and his team. Very respectful with my home, they prepared the areas to limit the mess and then at the end of the job, they left the area clean and tidy. I would recommend this company to anyone, and i will definitely be using again - 5 STARS

Not only did Krystian call back quickly in response to my advert, he also send out a guy to quote for the job when he said he would. Communication was great. The work was done within budget and on time and he even did extra work as well. The work was excellent, both Krystian and his mate turned up on time every day and worked hard to get the external wall removed. The site was cleaned up at the end of the day. I now have a wonderful open plan kitchen/conservatory and won't hesitate to recommend these guys:)

Handymen - what you need to know

A handyman can carry out a range of small "odd jobs" around the home that you can't or don't want to do yourself. They're skilled at a wide range of repairs and maintenance work. If you bought some flat pack furniture and you've been frantically typing 'how to put up IKEA furniture' in an online search engine ever since, a handyman can take the task off your hands. They can also hang objects on walls - like shelves, mirrors, TVs and photos - so you can finally get that photo wall you’ve been dreaming of.

What a handyman can help with

  • Assembling flat pack furniture.
  • Hanging photos/mirrors/TVs on a wall.
  • Mowing a lawn.
  • Hanging shelves on a wall.
  • Small paint jobs that don’t require a painter/decorator.
  • Cleaning a driveway.
handyman illustration

Sometimes, there are things that need doing in the house but they seem too small to justify hiring someone to get them done. It could be a small area that needs painting, or you might want your lawn mown and your driveway and garden path hosed down. These are the kinds of jobs a handyman can take care of. They tend to charge by the hour so they can carry out a number of tasks on one visit.

Questions you should ask a handyman

  • How long have they been trading?
  • What work can they do? (It’s a good idea to ask about extra skills, such as electrical.)
  • What experience do they have carrying out similar work to your job? Can they show you pictures?
  • What have their favourite jobs been/what jobs do they like doing?
  • How will they make sure the heavy object won’t fall off the wall?
  • Will they supply the materials for the job (e.g. nails/screws)?
  • Do they have public liability insurance and what does this cover?
  • Will they be carrying out the job themselves or sub-contracting it? If the job’s being carried out by someone else, what experience do they have and are they covered by insurance?
  • Will they give a guarantee/warranty for the work and how long does this last?
  • Is the cost of the job per hour or per finished job?
