What is a Handyman?
The straight answer is that a handyman is that man, or woman, or team, that turn up when you really need those odd jobs done about the house. We're often referred to as a 'Jack of all Trades' but that's a bit misleading because while, yes, a handyman is a generalist able to turn their hand to all manner of repairs, maintenance, and improvement the other part of that description is 'Master of None' and that simply isn't true. A good handyman knows their limits and we will always say if a job has to be done by a specialist for safety or regulation compliance but not only are we able to do a huge range of jobs, we are masters of those jobs that we do.
There are certain areas of electrical work that have to be done by licensed contractors because of safety reasons or the connection to the national grid. But most of the problems you have around the house don't fall into that category. A lot of malfunctioning equipment is down to the equipment, faulty connections, fuses and breaker boxes not to mention old favorites like light fittings. We can sort those out for you and if we decide that you need a specialist we can help put you in touch with one we know will do the job for the right price.
From new shelves to cupboards, banisters, replacing floor boards, or fixing wood trim around the house we are the team to talk to. We love woodwork and have the tools needed to get those jobs done beautifully, quickly, and at very reasonable prices. Want a deck fixed? Maybe a pergola put up? Perhaps those window frames are starting to get a little soft or that natural wood floor has some sagging boards? With one call you can have the team to put it right at a very reasonable cost and with minimal interruption to your home life.
Traps get blocked, faucet washers rot away, pipes get damaged over time and shower heads give up the ghost. Whether your waterworks need fixing, or fine tuning to give you better performance, or completely upgrading because you've been wanting to install a new power shower for, like, forever then we are the people to talk to. We won't make a mess, we won't make a fuss, and in the unlikely event that a job is beyond our skill set because of a manufacturer warranty or safety issue we'll be the first to put our hands up and bring in our specialist plumber partners.
Painting can be a soothing activity but it takes a lot of your precious time and in most houses there comes a point where you realize that you could do the job but you haven't gotten around to in the last few years and if you're not careful it will go a few more before anything happens about it. So get our friendly capable handymen in now and we will paint interiors or exteriors professionally and with care so as not to leave your furniture, children, etc. covered in splatter.
