Replacement doors and windows
Sometimes windows or doors can be repaired, sometimes it’s more cost-effective to replace them. Once we’ve decided the best way to proceed, I’ll measure up, give you a list of materials to buy, then do the work. Services include: fitting new uPVC windows and doors; building, fitting, or repairing hardwood or softwood windows and doors; fitting or replacing hinges, handles, locks and safety chains.
Flat packs, cupboards and shelves
Whether you prefer to buy flat packs, or would rather have something original, I’ll build and fit your furniture. Services include: assembling and fitting flat pack cupboards, shelves, and other furniture; designing and building made to measure cupboards and shelves; giving kitchens a face lift with new cupboard doors or worktops; recycling the packaging for you.
Walls, ceilings and laminate flooring
I’ll refurbish walls and ceilings, and turn unused loft space into an extra room. In some cases, I can lift small areas of laminate flooring for maintenance purposes and replace it afterwards, or restore small damaged areas (if the laminate is still available). Services include: upgrading floor joists; laying flooring; building partitions; insulating and panelling walls and ceilings in wood or uPVC; making door openings, fitting door frames and hanging doors.
Plumbing problems need a quick response. Sometimes I can repair older plumbing, sometimes it’s best to replace it. Services include: replacing taps and tap washers, unblocking waste pipes; repairing overflowing cisterns and fitting new ball cocks; plumbing in washing machines; altering kitchen units to fit with new appliances.
Gates and fencing
Well-maintained gates and fences protect your property. I’ll repair the existing gates, or build new to your specifications, plain or decorative. Services include: making and fitting new gates; fitting hasps, staples and padlocks; fitting wavey lap fence panels and building feather edge fencing; building and installing decorative picket fencing; replacing concrete posts; cutting new gateways.
Outbuildings, garages and yards
Outbuildings can get the worst of the weather. I’ll make everything secure and watertight. Services include: replacing rotten wood; repairing roofs and doors; improving security; painting, staining and applying wood treatment; building hutches, runs and window boxes; tidying yards, filling skips and other labour-intensive work.
