Putting up Shelves Gateshead

Shelf Installation Gateshead

When I asked a handyman in Gateshead recently what was the most commonplace job that he was requested to do, he answered "installing shelving". I suppose it isn't surprising really, since every house in Gateshead most likely has shelves in numerous locations. Installing a shelf is certainly a chore that your run-of-the-mill householder ought to be able to do at a push. But, there are still plenty of people who don't have a clue about how to do this, or just don't have the time, and would rather call on an odd job man. Another bonus of calling on a specialist is that you know the work will be done correctly, and the shelves won't fall off the wall after a few days. Obviously, it's not only houses in Gateshead which need shelving, shops and business premises also need different kinds of racking and shelving for both storing and displaying their merchandise.

Painting and Decorating Gateshead

The vast majority of Gateshead odd job men will offer general painting and decorating services for your smaller one-off jobs. If you need your entire house decorating in Gateshead you may be more comfortable contacting an established painter & decorator, but for simple decorating work it should be less expensive to use a handyman service. Such things as door painting (varnishing or glossing), painting woodwork (skirting boards, architraves and cornices), minor wallpapering projects, the filling of blemishes and cracks and patching plaster, are among the decorating tasks that you can reasonably expect a handyman in Gateshead to successfully do.

When all is said and done, although you're looking for a cheaper service, the work must still be completed correctly - so you should ask if you can see samples of work they have done previously, to put your mind at rest.
