Using two fence panels, odd sized paving slabs, path edging, log rolls and rolled marble pebbles transformed a once drab corner into a real talking point (and a stage for the grandkids).
Constructing the framework for decking to cover an old planter was an interesting challenge but the frame and decking took just a day to complete.
I enjoy gardening and maintaining gardens like this is more pleasure than work.
The customer asked for made to measure shelving for heavy articles in this alchove. After agreeing a basic design, this is the end product.
The customer asked for a low maintenance porch and garden for this holiday home. The end product is a upvc exterior from scratch (this was an open porch), pea shingle over weed blanket replacing the lawn, scrolled pavement edging to retain the pea shingle. A nearby neighbour has asked for the same.
For this customer I constructed a number of trellis fence panels in my workshop. Each was approx. 2.4m wide and held together with approx. 100 screws. It is light and airy and ideal for growing climbers and keeping the dog out the veg garden. Can you see the gate? Its to the left of the potted shrub
Tiled splash back (using floor tiles) sanded and oiled worktops plus a new cupboard (between the white goods) brought this dated kitchen back to life as well as making it more functional.
This property was described as showing signs of historic with a number of cracks clearly evident. After removing approx. 500kg of old cement before pointing the brick work and window facades the cracks are gone. Rubbing down and painting all the painted surfaces completed this exterior revamp
The customer asked for two doors in keeping with a period cottage property. I constructed these two doors off site and have made more since for the same customer
One of my doors in a period cottage fitted
This old building had woodworm infested floorboards which were removed and disposed of. The area was then treated before new boards were fitted
These cedar flower planters were installed for a local village to improve the otherwise drab footpath.
A new gate constructed and fitted on site
We were the best rated handyman service in Canterbury in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 according to Three Best Rated following their 50 point checking system and looking good for 2020.
This beach hut was in a very poor state with peeling/ flaky paint and lots of wet rot. After sanding down and removing most paint, all holes were filled, wet rot treated and filled then painted in a traditional yellow. Two years on water still runs off the paint work as if it's just been waxed.
We were asked to widen an existing driveway and make good the front wall
The customer went away on holiday with the brief
We cover a large area and this photo is of a property in Northern France where we are undertaking a barn conversion. As well as cleaning the A-frame we also dry lined, painted and re-pointed the property and have been asked to undertake a number of other tasks to complete the project.
For the fourth year running we have received this.

Great work!

Very friendly and lovely bloke. Took on lots of odd jobs for us and completed in the time frame given. What I really liked was that when a job went wrong he didn’t just give up, or do half a job he sat down with me and talked me through my different options. Now we have even better looking decking than before! Great guy, happy to rely on him for future jobs, and happy to recommend to others! Thank you!

Contacted this company and visit arranged.
Work inside and outside to be undertaken seen by this "handyman".
Jobs agreed to be carried out.
Advised on paint etc. to buy which we did.
Despite two answerphone messages being left and an email to book date for work, not one response.
The 5 star ratings given to this person seem impossible if this is the attitude to my request, despite being promised the work would be undertaken.
Have found a reliable decorator who has completed the work is worthy of FIVE stars.

Unfortunately it seems we have failed you for which we apologise but I have no outstanding emails or answerphone messages.

Excellent & prompt service

I needed a key safe fitted outside my elderly parents' house. David was prompt to respond to my call and very helpful in doing the job quickly and efficiently at short notice. He was polite and friendly and we will certainly use him again for any other odd jobs necessary for my parents.
