few words

About Me

Hi, My name is John C. Sweet,
I have had a range of jobs over my working life and picked up many valuable skills in and outside of these jobs.

Some of the jobs I have done include, but not limited to-

  • Director of and I.T company
  • Electrical/Mechanical Engineer
  • Sky Engineer
  • Car Valeter
  • Retail Manager

    To name a few 😉

So I know my way around such things as Electrics, TV/Audio visual, Computers, Mobile phones, Working at height, H&S, Power tools. I have also been a keen D.I.Y er over the years and do as much of my home repairs and improvements as I can.

I am not a gardener or landscaper but I have done a few garden projects in the past. I will post some before and after shots at some point.

I take pride in my work and can turn my hand to many things. That said I know my limitations and I will not say i can do something if I cannot or do not want to do it. I want to grow a reputation for quality work and not jeopardise it for a few pounds.

I have had a CRB (now known as DBS) in place for over seven consecutive years.

I have PLI (Public Liability Insurance) to the value of Five Million Pounds – This is advised and in some cases, Legal requirement.

    positive review  John fitted a new outside tap for us yesterday- involved removing an old rusty tap before he could make a start. Arrived on time, neat, tidy and explained and then resolved a couple of issues caused by the siting of the old tap. Highly recommended- will definitely use for any future handyman jobs we need doing.

    positive review  John has done a couple of jobs for us in the house. Putting up shelves and TV bracket. His professionalism, efficiency, desire to do a great job and prices will not be beaten. He tried to help with another job (unplanned) that he was unable to finish due to time on my part but he was willing to go out of his way to finish it. He’s an extremely conscientious tradesmen I really liked that about his work. Will be using John again in future. In fact, I’m going to send an email now to book in some jobs.

    positive review  John has undertaken a list of jobs for me including; power washing, clearing gutters and removing moss from the roof. When I saw the standard of his work, I added several other jobs that helped me get my house ready for sale and would have taken me ages. He is pleasant, reliable, hard working and I cant fault any of his work. Five stars from me.
