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 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.

    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.
