I hired Dave to remove radiators for plastering. He came, I paid him for that day and then he was supposed to come back another day to put them back on. I did not call him to get the radiators put back on, I asked someone else to do it. This is because I was quite unhappy. We were not planning to replace the carpet in our dining room but now have to as all this black stuff came out of the pipes when the radiator was removed and ruined the carpet. Now apparently this is normal. And i understand that a protective sheet/cloth/old towels etc are put underneath the radiator to stop the carpet being ruined. But Dave put nothing on there. Nor did he warn me as otherwise I would have put some old towels underneath. Dave said it was quite normal for a bubble to push some liquid out, fine, but then he should have been prepared for this by making sure there was something there to protect my carpet. This happened in both the living room and dining room. I was not too bothered about the living room but was upset at the dining room carpet being ruined as this is an expense I could do without having just bought a new house.

This job was completed a while back. It took a few hours to complete and the price was very very competitive. I have waited with the feedback, as I wanted to see how it held up against the weather. We have had several heavy rainfalls and no leakage inside. I can warmly recommend Dave.

All round handyman needed Handyman
Although Dave is a very nice man and he did worked hard, was very reasonable on price. His work is erratic and he doesn't listen to what you ask of him, he is rather slapdash.
My patio is very nice and the guttering around the cladding is good but....he never finished off the cladding and I have to get someone in to do that. The internal doors are OK but a couple are not (hinges and lock are not countersunk and screws missing). The cupboard in the bathroom is good but not square, again he did not listen to what I ask and the fascia is in MDF and not the gloss white wood that I had purchased so I have to replace this.
Tiling now this is where he really fell short he tells me he hates tiling and it showed, he just messed it up and I have to sort this out myself, twice I had to point out the mistakes and remove the tiles after the third time I banned him from the bathroom. There were bits of adhesive on the tiles on the floor crooked tiles and more......Sorry Dave you just can't tile so don't do it.
I would not use him again nor would I recommend him.
