Replaced light fittings and cold water tank ball value.
Front door lantern replaced plus
internal light switches. Also replaced faulty ball value in
the loft water tank so no more drips! Excellent service.
Highly recommended. Thank you!
Put up 6 curtain tracks and poles
Excellent! Very fast service, job
completed in a great time, and completed to a very high
standard. Tidy and polite, very friendly.
New lock fitted to broken gate and made good.
Garden gate and lock badly damaged
in overnight storm. Tried Checkatrade site after trying a
few fencing contractors (none got back to me), contacted
Rent-A- Hubby, he was busy but made time for my job for
which I am grateful. He did a good job and a very good rate.
I would not hesitate to recommend and to use him again.
Fitted bathroom cabinet.
Did a very good job. Encountered a
variety of difficulties with the job all of which he dealt
with very well. Clearly knew exactly what he needed to do.
Will use again.
Putting in under cupboard lights in kitchen, curtains rails and
curtains, door hooks, toilet roll holder, shelves in kitchen,
fixing the cat flap etc.
Brian is exceptional in his work.
He is punctual, friendly, hard working, honest and reliable
and does work of a high standard. So lovely to have someone
who does not spin the time out! He works by the hour but is
really quick and efficient and gets the job done! He is
without doubt the best handyman I have ever employed, and I
would highly recommend him.
Fixing drain pipes
Very efficient, thorough, helpful
and reasonably priced.
Fitted Blind Kitchen
Brian fitted in the job at short
notice, excellent timekeeping and reliability! Work was
completed to a very good standard and kept the kitchen tidy.
He is very friendly, honest and professional. Nothing was
too much trouble. We are very happy with the work undertaken
for a reasonable price and would thoroughly recommend this
company and would definitely use again.
Removal of piece of crazy paving.
The work was done swiftly and
efficiently so that I could plant a rose. All the debris
cleared away. I was very happy to have the job done and will
definitely employ Brian again when I need to have a small
Put up a shelving unit.
Brian did a great job of putting
up some 'dodgy' (as in workmanship) shelves I had bought
online. Once they were up they weren't quite level (the
fault was in the' dodgy' shelves) and Brian,didn't just
leave them slightly tilting. He made sure they were
absolutely straight. Great job and shelves still on wall one
week on. No mess to clear up afterwards either. I certainly
would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
Painting and one wall papered.
Generally work was excellent but I
have had to try and finish some bits myself. Old curtain
rail holes not filled in and wallpaper seams coming apart.
Response from Rent-A-Hubby:
We where surprised to see that the customer had to finish of
filling and re gluing the seams to the wall paper. In a day
we disconnected the electric cooker, cut in and painted
walls to bedroom, rubbed down sugar soaped woodwork and
painted. Cut and fitted curtain pole and finally wall
papered a wall. The customer never mentioned the holes when
I finished as we do normally fill all old holes. The wall
paper had not fully dried out so seams coming apart where
not apparent although the wall paper was going over
electrical plastic trunking which is difficult to stick. We
offer a 90 days guarantee on all works. We would have been
more than happy to have gone back and filled the holes of
the old curtain pole and re glued the seam but the customer
never called us.
Assembling of flat pack furniture, painting
Brian is great at what he does -
over the past few months he has helped with a number of
tasks like fitting blinds, painting the flat, assembling
flat pack furniture. His workmanship is excellent and I also
think his prices are very reasonable.
Various bits around the house, putting up pictures etc.
We found Brian to be very
efficient at what he did. It was great to provide a list of
things, come back home and find everything as requested. We
would have no hesitation recommending him.
