Shelf Installation Stranraer

Shelf Installation Stranraer

When I recently asked an odd job man in Stranraer what was the most popular job that he was asked to do, he responded "putting up shelves". I guess that is no great shock, seeing as most properties in Stranraer have some form of shelves or shelving. At a push, your everyday householder should really be capable of installing a shelf. However, not everybody has the tools or the inclination to accomplish this, and would prefer to call in a carpenter or handyman to do the job. Being able to relax in the knowledge that the work is going to be done properly and that the shelves are not going to fall off the wall after a couple of months is another bonus. This service will also be needed by business owners in Stranraer, seeing that shops and commercial premises need racking and shelving as well as residential homes.

Painting & Decorating Stranraer

Painting and Decorating Stranraer

Most Stranraer odd job men will offer general painting/decorating services for those smaller one-off jobs. Needless to say, a professional painter/decorator is a better option if for example, you need to decorate your entire house, but for minor decorating projects a handyman should be able to help you, and at less cost. You can reasonably assume that a handyman will be willing to undertake the following decorating work: painting doors (varnishing or glossing), woodwork painting (cornices, skirting boards and architraves), minor wallpapering projects, the filling of cracks and blemishes and plaster patching.

You should always ask to see some examples (photographs) of similar work that they've done for other clients because although you're looking for a slightly cheaper service, you still want the work to be done properly. Most Stranraer handymen will carry a record of their work on their phone or have photos posted on social media websites such as Facebook or Instagram.
