  • Cleaning & Odd Jobs

  • As you will see throughout this site I will tell you what i can do, what i cannot do or more accurately what I choose not to do as a HandyMan.


    I have listed below just a SMALL range of jobs that people ask me to do.
    One job that does not really come under any other heading other than what it is - Wireless Alarm.
    I have been installing these to a large number of my customers premises and you can find out more about my supply and fit service for Yale Wireless Alarms (Click here)

    Painting and Decorating - I am handy with a brush and and also the prep work such as stripping walls and sanding of surfaces and the like. However I choose not to do wallpapering so please do not ask for that service.

    Electrical - Although I do know my way around anything electrical, both domestic and industrial I am not certified to do certain types of work.
    This is both dangerous and illegal. So even if you do not use my services you must check what other people claim they are allowed to do.
    That said, I am permitted to change/replace certain things around your home. Such as sockets, lights, bulbs, tubes, plugs, fuses etc.

    Basic rule of thumb information:- If it is in place or has been in place I can repair or replace.
    Why call an electrician - Save yourself a lot of time and money call me - Tameside Handyman.
    If in doubt JUST ASK! :-)

    You can find out more information here - http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/permission/commonprojects/electrics/

    Plumbing - Again the word plumbing is often associated with many things. Just like electrical work this is governed by certain legal and safety implications. 
    As a DIYer and Handyman you and I are both restricted by what we can a cannot do.
    So again be sure that whoever you use is permitted / certified / qualified to actually do what he/she says they are!
    A list of what I can and will do are listed on the Plumbing page.

    As a general rule of thumb for your info:- I can do all basic plumbing work such as - Installing and removing dishwashers and washing machines. Leaks to taps, baths, toilets, wash basins, sinks and so on. If you need new taps, toilet, washbasin plumbing in No Problem.

    Its quite simple - JUST ASK ME :-)

    Cleaning & Odd jobs - Ok so who likes cleaning? well I do for one thing :-) What can I say about cleaning jobs that isn't self explanatory? I have a very powerful Karcher Power washer which is suitable for most cleaning jobs outside. Decking, patio, drives, concrete, walls, furniture you name it with this I can probably clean it !
    For windows I have a Karcher window cleaner which is speedy and efficient.
    However if your cleaning needs are a little more specific and require just a little less power then let me know I can probably clean it.
    Having had a valeting business I tend to know what will work.
    I will clean your gutters but please note I will not work above the gutter line on any jobs for safety reasons.

    Odd jobs - Just haven't had the time or just cannot be bothered with those little things around the house that need doing? I am your man. Something hanging off or loose? Picture needs hanging? Garden or garage needs a tidy? Rubbish needs taking to the tip?
    What about having you loft bordered and get some space back in your wardrobes?
    If its odd and its a job chances are I will do it - Just ask.


    If you also take a look at my About Me page you will get a better idea of what experience I have had outside of being a handyman. 

    Take a look below and see what I currently offer and if you do not see a service it does not necessarily mean i do not provide it. You only have to ask and I will let you know.

    Please check back regularly to check out more of what i will do and have done and please, please share with your family and friends so that I can continue to provide a the service you want.
