Paul's Handyman Services provide a wide range of home repair, maintenance and improvement solutions to our customers. As well as being able to carry out most work ourselves, with our extensive project management experience gained over 30 years, we can offer a turnkey solution to your home improvement project, acting as prime contractor & project manager and sub-contracting to other qualified trades where necessary.
Services available include:
Repairs - Do you have a tap that drips continuously or a toilet cistern/water tank that overflows? Does your radiator leave a brown stain on the carpet? Have you broken a pane of glass in a window or door, damaged door frame or skirting board? Have the doors on your kitchen cupboards come adrift or gone out of alignment? Has the sealant round your bath or sink gone mouldy or is it leaking? Is that window or door still sticking? Do you have old or broken 13A sockets/light switches/doorbell? None of these or any similar issues are a problem to us - we can repair or replace things as necessary to restore full service to your home.
Wall and Floor Tiling - Existing wall and floor tiles can be removed and the substrate prepared for re-tiling to your specification. Walls can be replastered where necessary, or even dry-lined to produce a totally flat surface for the very best results. Wooden floors can be reinforced with chipboard, MDF or plywood to take tiling with a self levelling screed applied, and underfloor heating mats or wet matrix systems incorporated if desired.Tiling can then be carried out in all materials, with specific experience in ceramics, slate, marble and glass including mosaics. Our Previous Clients page has pictures of some recent projects we have successfully delivered.
Bathrooms - Do you still have an avocado bathroom suite that went out of fashion in the Seventies? Is the layout all wrong with wasted space and no shower? We can do anything from repair of existing sanitary ware to complete replacement with new, including all plumbing, electrical, tiling and flooring work required. Recent projects have seen old, damaged baths replaced with new baths and associated retiling as necessary; an airing cupboard turned into a shower cubicle when a new instantaneous boiler made the hot water tank redundant; a circular shower built from scratch with marble mosaic tiling; an en-suite added in place of a storage cupboard; old style bath and basin taps replaced with modern equivalents, with service valves fitted to ease future maintenance and many more projects. Again some examples can be seen on our Previous Clients page.
Kitchens - We can revitalise old, tired kitchens by replacing the cupboard and drawer fronts and worktops, or install a completely new kitchen from scratch. Removal of the old kitchen, including disposal via skips, and all plumbing, electrical, tiling and flooring work can be carried out by us, sub-contracting tasks to additional qualified trades where necessary for specific gas and electric work. We can also reseal kitchen worktops, add cupbards and shelves, retile, replace worktops - whatever you need doing just ask Paul. See what we have done recently on our Previous Clients page.
Painting & Decorating - Inside your home we can paint walls and ceilings, wallpaper, put up coving, install wall panelling and much more. If walls or ceilings need it we can replaster or dry line before decorating. Outside we can paint all external woodwork including soffit and eaves, windows, garage door etc, plus paint walls on rendered or brick surfaces.
Doors & Windows - Rotten wooden windows can be replaced with modern uPVC equivalents or can be repaired and redecorated. Doors can be supplied and fitted both internal and external, together with all necessary hardware. Changing a room layout and want a window taken out and bricked up? Or a new one put in? - no problem!
Plumbing - We can carry out a wide range of plumbing services such as repair of dripping taps, leaking radiators, overflowing cisterns and toilets. We can also fit new radiators, outside taps, underfloor heating systems, and water supplies for washing machines and dishwashers. Redundant plumbing resulting from a new multipoint boiler installation can be removed and the areas made good.
Garden Buildings - In the garden we can build and repair garden walls, fences & gates; lay paths, patios and decking; build sheds, greenhouses & BBQs; and many more jobs. We don't carry out lawn care or ground maintenance though.
Odd Jobs - This covers all those small jobs you always meant to get round to doing but never quite manage to find the time, such as: put up shelves and mirrors; fit curtain rails, poles and blinds; assemble flatpack furniture; hang or adjust doors; install loft ladders, flooring and insulation; change light fittings and sockets; change locks; lay carpets/lino/laminate flooring.
Small Building Works & Joinery - We can build internal and external walls for small projects, for example creating a new cloakroom in a sideway or utility area. We can also build stud walling (for example to sub-divide larger rooms into 2); fit new floorboards, skirting boards and architrave; fit new window sills in wood or uPVC; fit new stair components (spindles, handrails, newell posts etc); make new doorways or move existing ones (putting in RSJs or supports as necessary); fabricate custom shelving/cupboards/storage solutions; and much more.
Private Landlords/Letting Agents - In the rental sector we work extensively with landlords and their agents to attend to problems reported by tenants, as well as providing refurbishment services between tenancies. We also provide refurbishment services at initial take up of a new property and carry out more involved redecoration assignments, often with new bathroom and kitchen requirements. If you need a reliable handyman service to provide your tenants with a quality solution then look no further than Paul's Handyman Services.
