Great guy and great job
Kevin is a super guy, very professional and precise in his work, he carried out a refit of my cloakroom bathroom which involved chasing pipes into the wall, tiling, new ceiling and boxing of other pipe work, all done superbly and he was even ok to accommodate a couple of changes along the way with no fuss, all in all a great guy and I’m already booking him for some more work in the next few weeks. 5 Star rating 👍

Wonderful renovations
Able Handyman has completely remodelled my home including plastering, joinery and painting and decorating and I am delighted with the results. He is punctual, professional, tidy and curteous and I would definitely recommend him.

Didn't even bother to turn up
I took the day off work for this and he didn't even turn up. I rang him when he didn't arrive on time and he said he was delayed on another job but would definitely come straight over that afternoon when finished, so I waited in and he never showed. He also didn't reply to my email the next day asking why he let me down. Not very professional and completely wasted my time so I would not recommend.

Highly recommended.
Kevin came to repair a hut roof for us. He was very professional and obviously took great pride in his work which is a rare quality these days.
We will certainly be in touch with him again when the need arises and would recommend him without hesitation.

First class tradesman
We engaged Kevin to do various plumbing jobs including removal of a bath and fitting a walk-in shower, fitting outside taps and a new sink and tap in the kitchen. He also did lots of other little jobs plus decorated almost the full house. Every job from the largest to the smallest was done to the highest standards with meticulous attention to detail. On top of that Kevin is a lovely man, and we trusted him right from the start of the process to the last day. His quote was reasonable and he was happy to do one or two extras that we'd forgotten about. Nothing was too much trouble for him; he even moved furniture, which was especially important to us as my husband has MS. I have no hesitation in recommending him and indeed we are having him back later in the year for more work, which tells you everything you need to know.
