Fred Cavanagh

  • Cut 6 inch square hole into weld stainless steel mesh

  • Assemble small garden shed

    Very good. I lost the instructions but Fred managed to access them and constructed the shed.

  • General weeding and prep ground

    Fred did a good job, even worked through the Rain and the Thunder, when we pointed out something was not right he did not hesitate to put it right, we are going to use him again when we need our pond put in

  • Various jobs

    friendly reliable and honest plus a great worker will definitely be hiring Fred again

  • Plasterboard down stairs toilet

    Extremely disappointed and shocked at the poor quality of his work. I refused to pay him. I now have to pay someone else to rip out what he did, at an extra cost to me , and re start the work. Would not recommend Fred.

    Fred Cavanagh's reply:

    I am sorry that you were not happy with the work. I was happy not to charge you as you were clearly not satisfied. I would like to say that I worked with the materials you provided and had not completed my work so the final product could be judged.

  • Fitting blinds x 4

    Fred did an excellent job: he was very resourceful and managed to deal with some unexpected wall issues that arose. He was friendly and reliable, and even took on a little extra job (hanging a mirror) while he was there. Highly recommended.

  • Odd jobs - Urgent

    Nice, polite and calm person. Unfortunately, work was not up to standard. Billed for six hours of odd jobs, most of which he was unable resolve and the workmanship for most of the remaining jobs (e.g. putting screws on the walls, attaching a picture frame and a heavy decorative item etc..) was not up to standard (e.g. not properly attached or using wrong products). He didn't respond to the complaint when issue raised with him. It may have been an off day for him or may be ore skilled in other areas of handymans jobs.

  • Setting up garden table and chairs

    great work done and left in a neat and tidy condition

  • Shelf building

    Fred arrived as promised and did a good job. Price was fair too. Would definitely use Fred again, thanks

  • Garden renewal

    I can highly recommend Fred. I engaged him to lay a patio, replace grass area with shingles, repair border edgings, and generally tidy up the garden. He constantly sought to understand my needs for the job, and gave me a clear quote in advance for labour and materials. The quote was reasonable, and he did a very good job, always keeping me informed of progress, reliable, and left the garden clean and tidy.

  • Paving small area

    Fred did a good job, paving my backyard. He was efficient and completed the job in one day, clearing up thoroughly after his work.

  • Shed assembly

  • Washing machine

    The job was slightly tricky but Fred and I discussed and agreed an approach. Fred agreed to return if it did not work. It did not work and he kept his promise and returned promptly and using another agreed approach he completed the job. Very pleasant manner and cleared up after himself. #Veryhappycustomer

  • Several Jobs

    Fred arrived on time and got to work. The jobs were done to my satisfaction and I am very pleased. Fred was friendly and very helpful and made good suggestions. He cleaned up too. I will be using him again and I can definitely recommend him.

  • Putting two blinds up

    Great . No problems . Would use again and recommend

  • Stacking and Splitting Logs

    Excellent service all round.

    I would highly recommend Fred Cavanagh; he is reliable, professional, highly skilled and friendly.
