I do most of the work myself at this stage as I have found many handymen are not up to scratch at the rates that I charge. I am able to do allot of the different types of handyman work except electrics. Please see my experience below..
My introduction to the world of trade work began when I was 18 working as my uncles helper in his civil maintenance & refractory bricklaying company. There I learnt a ton about concrete work and allot about general building and how to lay bricks inside of kilns,burners and things like that.
I then moved on to tiling and have specialised in the trade and can undertake all specialist aspects such as Victorian tiling stone work, polishing etc. After quite a while in the tiling trade I got a bit bored so began working in any other trade jobs that didn’t involve tiling. So over a period of about 6 years I worked as a general builder, window fitter, plumbers mate/bathroom fitter, carpenter, garden landscaper, sound-proofer, pest controller, fireplace restorer and last but not least general handyman.
Courses in Bricklaying
VNQ in Electrics (domestic installers certificate.)
Practical pest control certificate(allows me to purchase required poisons etc)
Short courses in stone masonry
So I am confident that I can undertake most aspects of property maintenance and will be able to adequately manage jobs that require skills I do not have.
