Business overview

BDS Handyman Services. Free visit to view. Property maintenance and improvement of all types, help with varied job lists, light carpentry and masonry work. Don't just make do, mend

I relish my work as a Handyman and have run BDS Handyman Services for several years now. Many of my skills I've acquired from working as a custom picture framer for 20 years, bringing this attention to detail and adaptability to each unique task in my current role as a handyman.

Whether it's making, maintaining or mending I will work with your needs.

I regularly accept long job lists from new customers and existing clients that can be both challenging and varied. I am well equipped to help and I can usually advise and apply a fresh approach where needed, all done with flair and knowledge.

Start by meeting me and taking me through your tasks by priority.

I am offering an extensive service, and will gladly conduct an initial free viewing.

I can help up-cycling your furniture, assist with decorating inside and out, assemble flat pack furniture and some carpentry and joinery restoration jobs, including loft hatches and loft space refurbishment. I also hang all wall art, framed or otherwise and attend to all sorts of household fittings and fixtures like curtain poles/tracks and blinds ...... the list goes on.

If in doubt, please contact me and ask for a free viewing visit. Estimate/job sheet drawn up and e-mailed on request. Risk assessments provided if needed or requested.

I look forward to hearing from you.


Please consider all everyday house hold diy and decorating jobs undertaken. Hourly rates are available for very small jobs, otherwise half and full day rates applicable.
