GB Joinery Tech & Handyman Service
Hello, my name is Neil
After finding myself redundant at the age of 50, I decided to retrain in something which I enjoy. I am looking to provide a joinery and handyperson service to support people within the local community and hopefully to make life a little easier for those that need help.
Over the last 20 years, I have helped to renovate 4 houses. By watching and helping the tradesmen, and indeed carrying out many tasks myself, I am now very competent at DIY. I’m currently attending Coleg Cambria to formalise my joinery skills and am gaining new ones.
I love working with wood and improving people’s lives with each new install. I would like to put a smile on people’s faces by offering my services as a Joiner and as a Handyman.
I enjoy reading and watching films, and spending time relaxing in my garden with my Koi pond.
What services can I offer?
A lot of my fellow tradesmen are very busy carrying out major works to homes, so it can be difficult and frustrating to find someone reliable to carry out very minor repairs or alterations.
I can supply most items, or I can fit your own provided they are of the correct type and specification.
Light DIY tasks such as:
Putting shelves up, putting curtain poles/rails up, coat hooks or building flat pack furniture
Fitting grab rails or adding an extra stair rail
Painting and decorating
Or perhaps you just need help to move furniture
Bigger tasks but not major works:
Perhaps you need your internal doors or frames replacing, repairing or adjusting, or you want to replace your skirting and architrave?
Maybe you need an extra cupboard adding to your kitchen, or your worktops or cupboard doors need replacing or updating or even just repairing?
I can repair or replace squeaky, uneven or damaged floorboards but this is subject to assessment
I can fit laminate and vinyl plank flooring if carpets are causing issues with mobility
Loft access provided
I have experience in tiling floors, kitchens and bathrooms
I can provide photographs of previous work
Electrical work: As I’m not a fully qualified electrician I am unable to do this in bathrooms, kitchens or outdoors. I can replace socket fronts, switches and light fittings, but they have to be a like for like replacement. I can however provide details of someone that can help, when I can’t.
Basic plumbing work: As I’m not a qualified plumber, I don’t normally work on plumbing. I can however provide details of someone that can help.
Garden work: Maybe you’d like fencing or gates replaced, or a pergola building. Perhaps a small patio to enjoy some time in your garden? I only offer this service during the warmer months, but can measure, estimate and plan when its cold outside.
If it’s something I am unable to do, I will be honest and maybe direct you to someone who can carry out the work at a reasonable cost. My advice costs nothing except a cup of tea and a chat.
Peace of mind – I am fully insured and DBS Checked
GB Joinery Tech is a small community enterprise which aims to make life a little bit easier for people by improving their homes. I can supply and fit to plans and also to my own or your own designs.
