FDS - Practical Maintenance

I am what was traditionally known as a Handyman. I try and cover all basic home and garden maintenance needs. Decorating, basic gardening, basic (non gas) plumbing, guttering, timberwork repairs, and the like. I have been working professionally at this since January 2014. I have like many carried out DIY jobs for myself and others for many years and for 18 years was a Senior Highway Technician for the local authority.
