ABOUT BROMSGROVE HANDYMAN BromsgroveHandyman.co.uk is the trading name of myself, Gordon Dipple. I am a local person who's family roots in Bromsgrove go back many generations. I have worked chiefly as an artisan, embracing a wealth of experience, predominately in the construction industries, spanning some thirty years. I operate a "green" policy undertaking mostly local work principally renovation & repair, with an emphasis on necessary work in keeping with the building and the area, using traditional or reclaimed materials where possible. Fortunately, I have a sufficient trusted client base to fill my work diary. However as clients move on, I occasionally can find time for new ones. If you think that we may be able to work together to our mutual benefit, then please do not hesitate to contact me. I offer a free informal survey, by way of introduction. So why not let me cast a experienced eye over your home to ensure that it is safe and sound.
ARE YOU BUSY AT THE MOMENT ?
I am always busy with one thing or another, I have recently been very busy with roof repairs & renovations.
"Busy with roof repairs, is yours O.K?"
Fortunately, most of my work consists of small jobs that take less than a day, they are usually seasonal or weather dependant, so I can easily rearrange my schedule to suit your individual needs.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO CHECK YOUR ROOF OR FENCING OVER, FREE OF CHARGE, PLEASE CONTACT ME.
I rarely give a precise quotation for my work, because a contingency price has to be added to cover unseen problems and additional costs, leading to unnecessarily high pricing. My clients and I have found that it is fairest to all to charge based on a daily/hourly rate appropriate for the work involved (see below).
e.g. work normally undertaken by clients : - Interior painting, general gardening, graveside care, cleaning, etc . . .
Charged at £80 per eight hour day - minimum £20 (up to 2hrs)
e.g. work of a technical nature : - Electrical, Plumbing, Carpentry, Exterior painting, computer repair, etc . . .
Charged at £100 per eight hour day - minimum £30 (up to 2hrs)
e.g. work of a dangerous nature : - Roof repairs, handling dangerous materials (e.g. chemicals, raw sewage, etc), etc . . .
