Vas fitted the cat flap neatly and quickly and didn’t complain when the door was thicker than expected. I was very pleased with the work

I am a very experienced competent person with a good knowledge and understanding of how things need to be built, repaired or secured safely to walls or ceilings. I have Public Liability insurance, a recent Enhanced DBS Certificate to be able to work in schools, care homes and other similar workplaces. Ihave recently updated myself by taking and passing an approved (CPD, ROSPA) Electrical Safety Course. I always try to agree a price that makes both the customer and myself happy for the work to be be done. Most recent job requests have been repairs; from rescuing part rotted decking and restoring to repairing an underground wired garden lighting system. However historically fitting blinds, curtain rails, mounting large TVs {hidden or trunking for cables if you chose} shelving, building high street flat pack furniture, bespoke decking are popular requests. All work guaranteed. Thanks for reviewing my gallery and considering me. Don't hesitate to call me at anytime.

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?
