A Handyman in the Garden

You shouldn't be scared to ask if your handyman can do a bit of work in the garden. Looking after your garden is just as important as the care of your inside areas. You might find the odd handyman who will do actual gardening chores like lawn mowing and hedge clipping. Though often, projects like hard landscaping or shed assembly are more their cup of tea.

Shelf Installation Compton

Shelf Installation Compton

When I recently asked a handyman in Compton what was the most common job that he was requested to do, he replied "putting up shelving". That shouldn't be any huge shock when you realise that virtually every home in Compton will have one or more shelves. Of course, installing a shelf is a chore that your average homeowner might be able to undertake on their own. But, not everybody has the inclination or the tools to accomplish this kind of task, and would rather bring in a carpenter or handyman to do the job. Being able to relax in the knowledge that the job is going to be done effectively and that the shelves are not going to give way after a month is an additional bonus. Naturally, shelving is necessary in shops and business premises in Compton, as well as residential homes, consequently business owners will also require this particular service.

Painting & Decorating Compton

Painting and Decorating Compton

Smaller one-off painting/decorating tasks will also be provided by the majority of odd job men in Compton. Naturally, a professional painter and decorator is a better option if for example, you need to decorate your whole house, however for straightforward decorating projects a handyman will be able to help you, and at less cost. You can reasonably assume that a handyman will be willing to do these decorating work: patching plaster, door painting (glossing or varnishing), painting woodwork (cornices, architraves and skirting boards), modest wallpapering assignments and the filling of cracks and blemishes.

Whilst you might be in need of a somewhat cheaper service, you'll still want this work to be done correctly, therefore ask if you can see some proof (photographs) of similar work that they have done for other customers. Established odd job men in Compton will typically produce a portfolio of their past work, which will generally be displayed on their social media accounts (Instagram or Facebook) and also on their phone.

This service is not free even though Age UK is a charitable organization, you will be charged a very reasonable £20 per hour. This fee does not all go to the handyman, he/she has to pay a part back to the charity.

Boarding Out a Loft

Loft boarding can be a great way to improve your home's value, and it's even better when done by a skilled odd job man. A handyman can help you make the most of your loft space, transforming it into a functional storage area or even a comfortable additional room. Loft boarding is a task that requires a range of skills, which a proficient handyman has. They understand the structural aspects of a house, so they know to consider the loft's load-bearing capacity before laying down the boards. By hiring a handyman with expertise in loft boarding, you can prevent likely safety hazards and ensure that your boards are installed correctly and safely. A seasoned odd job man will also know that compressed insulation is not energy efficient, and they will ensure that any insulation present in the home is not compressed. (16935)
