Came on time and cracked on with the job, looks like I had a new wall built! Used him as he was slightly cheaper and most importantly he used a tower as I couldn't afford scaffold and I don't think someone on a ladder would've done such a good job.

My daughter and her husband have just moved house. S and E Garden and Property maintenance came to clear a huge load of rubbish and dead plants from the back garden, They weeded the gardens and dug it over beautifully. They cleaned the patio that was black and transformed it - it looks like new. The whole job was magnificent and was done by two hard working guys who were great and considerate to deal with. They did more that we thought. What a fantastic job and what a great company to deal with.

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?
