I have just had Building & Handyman here this week to do various handyman jobs and only wanted to pay for 2 hours, they did everything on my to do list, they were so good that I booked them to come back and do some more jobs on Friday. I have decided I will be using them for various work whilst we move abroad and let out our house.

My first time today 21.02.14 to use Building & Handyman, can not praise them enough. Very efficient. Cameron arrived first thing and changed five down lights. He was so pleasant and such a delight to have working at my house. Extremely happy with his work, just been in to pay my bill and will most certainly be using them again.

I just wanted to say how amazing this company is, I booked them yesterday 20/02/14 for a job I am almost too embarrassed to write about. I bought these new amazing Porta Romana lamps and needed new small plugs put on them and a few spotlights I could not reach replacing. Michael arrived on time and got the jobs done in no time at all. Will definitely be using them again. Thank you.

Just used this helpful team again today thanks to the storm at the weekend. Lead flashing on roof was allowing water to come in to my daughters bedroom, Lynn at the office called me first thing this morning and was able to get her team across to me straight away. The two chaps got straight to work and the problem was sorted in no time at all. They also did a few other handyman jobs for me whilst they were here. Good work guys, thanks ever so much.

They send a different guy to each job everyday so have to start over with what you want done. Jobs are rushed, simple materials are over priced. I was recommended them by someone and wouldn't use them again. Business built up and now outsourced to anyone that'll turn up each day.

I called Building and Handyman again as my hall light just stopped working. Danny came to my rescue, gosh he is so competent, he also fixed one of my spot lights in the kitchen that has been broken for years, as well as fix the broken door handle on my bathroom door. Can not praise this co enough.

I have been using this wonderful company for many years now and wanted to add a review to say how super the entire team is. No matter how large or small the job, they just sort it. They are reliable, trustworthy and always on time. In fact Danny is calling to fix my front door lock today.

Started using Building and handyman for minor repair works over the last couple of years. They always seem to be reasonably priced and ON TIME. On one occasion of there drivers over ran and they called and emailed me. They have just completed by bathroom and I couldn't be happier.

Another bugab

Dishonest way of advertising "no call-out charge". They sent an engineer who switched the boiler on and off for 45mins (no different than the checks I had done with no experience on the matter). He left admitting that he could not work out the problem and could only suggest to change one of the parts "to see what happens", but there was no guarantee that they may need to change other parts. (They didn't even offer a guarantee on their work/parts after it was completed). I wasn't very confident that they knew what they were doing so did not want them to come back. I was billed 100 for having an engineer come around for 45mins and tell me they did not know what to do. Not impressed at all. The honest way for engineers to work should be by inspecting the issue/providing a solution/and providing a quote for the work. It is dishonest to advertise no call-out charge and then charge when there was no labour done at all.

I have used this company several times and have always found them to be utterly capable, polite and extremely responsive. On friday 13th(!)I had a major leak in my lounge radiator, within literally minutes James (the project manager) was in my lounge with a spanner. He stopped the leak and his swift thinking to also check my basement saved me from undoubtedly much more extensive and very expensive damage - the water had been pouring through onto the wooden basement floor and was speeding towards some artwork. He quickly helped me get the towels and mop onto it. They have since overhauled my heating system so this wont happen again. I shall always be using them going forward and cannot recommend them highly enough.

Wow! I was recomended to use BH by someone in my road. I was told they had a very good local reputation. I used them for 2 or 3 small handyman jobs and found them skilled, polite and proffessional. This gave me the confidence to ask them to do a large job of refurbishing 2 bathrooms and fully re decorating. They provided me with a schedule before they started. I was kept informed throughout the project. The men on site were tidy and very friendly. The finished job was exactly what i wanted. Well done to the team. 10 out of 10 for me!

The project manager gave me the confidence to use this firm even though the reviews back in 2006 were poor. The more recent reviews suggested serious improvement. Unfortunately,this was not the case. Over 50% of their workmen are not professional in my opinion and actually fairly incompetent. Poor finishing on most jobs was not expected as they were expensive, but that is what I got. The job was suppose to take 4-5 days and in the end it took 3 weeks due to staff being pulled from my job to other jobs (working on the owners house in France rather than servicing their customers!!). On top of that, the price increased 10% on the whole project and certain workmen were over estimating time spent on the job. One or two workmen were good, but best to avoid this company as I was told that there are large numbers of complaints by other customers (according to their own staff). Very disappointing. Read the old reviews as they were right. I did better woodwork at 8yrs old!

A fairly straightforward bit of DIY was done shoddily, took 2 hours when it should have taken 20 minutes and was still not done properly. They sent someone to remedy it but its still a mess. When we challenged the cost they put an aggressive debt collector on us which has now added legal costs to the bill as well - we have reluctantly paid up to avoid any further hassle but we certainly wont be using them again or recommending them. What a pity - a promising local business but we feel badly let down by their attitude.
