I never said that I don't want to change doors, but I asked if it is worth to do it and I was advised not to. I sent you all photos with defects and you agreed that it was poorly done in some places, it is nothing to do with old doors. I still have photos I am very open to share them with Rated People so they can judge it. Besides newly fitted handles from two doors fell off after a month and I had to fix them.

My husband and I were moving house, and had a window of opportunity (2 and a half weeks) to get a few rooms decorated before we had to move in. Kieran came and gave us a quote for a bedroom, dining room (which we were making into a playroom) and the living room, including boxing out the fireplace to make a feature recess. He was able to start immediately, turned up everyday on time and got the job done beautifully. We were absolutely thrilled with the results and there was almost no mess at all.

David came up to have a look at the job I needed done with clearing out an old derelict garden and quoted me a price I was happy with. He agreed to do the job the next day, which was done to my satisfaction. He even talked about my further options I had with either decking or just making the whole garden grass again. So I've got David and his team back again to do more work to finalise this tidy up project. I would 100% recommend these guys to anyone needing work done.

What type of job is it?

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?
