Putting up Shelves Barkway

Shelf Installation Barkway

When I asked an odd job man in Barkway last week what was the most popular job that he was requested to do, he answered "fitting up shelving". I suppose it makes sense really, as every home in Barkway most likely has shelving in various locations. Putting up a shelf is of course is the sort of DIY job that your run-of-the-mill householder should be able to do at a pinch. But, there are still lots of people who don't know how to do this, or just do not have the time, and would prefer to call on an odd job man. Knowing that the job is going to be done accurately and that the shelving isn't going to fall down after a couple of months is another bonus. Naturally, it isn't only homes in Barkway that need shelving, business premises and shops also need different kinds of shelving and racking for both displaying and storing their merchandise.

Odd Jobs in the Garden

Your local handyman will most likely be just as used to working in the garden as he is indoors. The repairs and maintenance of your external areas is just as necessary. Obtaining a handyman who'll carry out actual gardening chores like hedge clipping and lawn mowing is not unheard of. Most keep away from this type of work and focus on regular construction and maintenance jobs like shed assembly or hard landscaping.

It is now simple to book in a handyman or gardening service by getting in touch with the charity Age UK. It's a condition of registering with Age UK, that all employees be police checked (DBS) and interviewed. The handyman service isn't free despite the fact that Age UK is a charitable organization, you'll be charged an affordable £20 per hour. So that Age UK can continue their good works, the handyman pays them a part of the fee.

The types of decorating tasks that you would expect a handyman to undertake include: painting doors (varnishing or glossing), patching plaster, smallish wallpapering projects, painting woodwork (i.e. skirting boards, architraves and cornices) and the filling of blemishes and cracks.

While you might be looking for a somewhat cheaper service, you still want this work to be done properly, so ask to see some samples (photographs) of comparable work that they've done for other clients.
