Just wanted to add to the previous posts on here - cannot speak highly enough of Lee Rodgers, aka S6 Handyman. We have used him a few times for decorating and electrical jobs around our flat. He always does a brilliant job, does not overcharge and is 100% trustworthy. Would definitely recommend him and will use him again!

If you don't ask you will never know. But having asked do not always expect either sense or the truth in all responses.

I'm looking for someone to remove some builders rubbish for me for a reasonable rate.

I had a little porch taken down of the front of the house and it needs taking away.

I want someone licenced though please. Any recommendations?

Cheers
Shirley

For Blinds I'd recommend Andy of Crucible Blinds (formerly at Monbello Blinds), Sheffield.

He's been to mine a few times to repair damaged vertical blinds (broken chains, new track, broken weights, slats etc) over several rooms.

Nice chap, polite, reliable, reasonably priced, and does a good job.

Also sells new blinds of all types.

He can be contacted on: (07966) 989088

Hi,
I need a handyman or similar with a long ladder. Have a sash window on 3rd storey that is painted shut and I can't open from the inside. Need someone who has a long ladder (I would guess approx 8-9m) and can use a blade to cut the paint so I can open the sash. Let me know if interested. S10. Cheers.

Has anyone used Mick from MD Construction for any work? I've just read his glowing reviews on MyBuilder.com and was thinking of getting him in for a few jobs.

(Also, if anyone has a direct phone number for him I would appreciate it.)

We used Jeff Smith's joinery skills (07861 379796) again on our new kitchen project. He laid our reclaimed flooring and provided custom pine skirting and architraves and (as usual) did an amazing job despite the challenges thrown his way by our wonky old house. always a pleasure to have around is Jeff; quality, knowledgeable, competitively priced, tidy and considerate. thanks mate!

I'll join the ranks of those recommending Sam at DDPS http://www.ddps.biz/

He fixed stuff for us that previous plumbers said they couldn't do.

We need a patio outback - recommendations please? Nothing too elaborate really, just levelling the ground and some slabs.

Can anyone recommend a builder for a side extension (to be built over an existing garage) and a rear kitchen / diner extension. Ideally by someone who has had similar work done.

thanks!

We would like to express our gratitude to Whitecliffe builders Eric, Martin and Owen who have transformed our kitchen and dining room into a beautiful family space. We were quite daunted by the proposition of the extensive work required – new floor, ceiling, walls, windows, electrics and plumbing – and finding a builder who would be able to deliver, but from start to finish Eric and his team have been extremely professional, hard-working and reassuring. Eric carefully considered our plans, made numerous helpful suggestions and worked hard to source the materials we wanted. Martin is by definition a master craftsman, skilled, diligent, hardworking and always considerate of, and communicating with, the client. Ably assisted by his son Owen, they have worked tirelessly to complete the work on schedule. What is apparent is that they are not only skilled builders, but extremely proud of the work they do – we feel very lucky to have found a team who are clearly experts in their profession and really nice people to boot! Thank you very much Eric, Martin and Owen! You are always welcome to pop by for a cup of tea and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Have a cellar flooded with about 4 inches of still water since yesterday.

Can anyone offer any advice or recommend tradesman to assist?

Property is in Handsworth.

Thanks

You want a sump or submersible pump. Most tool hire places carry them.

It won't get every last drop out though, you'll be left with about three quarters of an inch still to remove. A plastic dustpan can be a good tool to get the last bit out, take one of those plastic crates down into the cellar and use the dustpan to scoop up the water and drop it into the crate. An old towel will complete the mop up. Let the cellar air - I have used a domestic fan heater to help speed up the drying out and airing of small flooded cellars.

A Handyman would be able to do all this for you if you didn't want to do it yourself. Just tell 'em to bring their wellies!
