Why replace when you can repair

Unfortunately today there is a throwaway culture within the workplace. Fixtures and fittings are replaced just because a castor or handle has fallen off or a piece of equipment just isn’t quite right for the job.
These items can be repaired or adapted to suit purpose.

The aim of every good handyman
The aim of every good handyman
repair not replace
Renovate not relocate

If you are considering buying a new home due to your current property no longer fulfilling your needs i.e. the family has grown or you would like a bigger kitchen or home office, have you actually looked at your current homes potential for renovation? Quite often by dividing a room or opening one up you can achieve the desired effect. Also consider loft conversions, extensions, conservatories or even out buildings and garages.

To DIY or Not

These days most people have a good basic knowledge of DIY thanks to school curriculums incorporating DT (Design Technology) RM (Resistant Materials) and Engineering Basics. However to complete some of the more technical jobs specialist tools are required which can be very expensive. You have also got to consider dangers & safety such as working at heights, the risk of shocks, gas and water leaks, and the structural integrity of your property. Even a highly skilled competent handyman will not undertake tasks he or she is not 100% confident in. If you are considering a DIY project and would like a little advice before starting give me a call.

Mr G Glossop
Darren (Caretaking Support Services) did an amazing job on my fence. I was quoted 2 times more by another company. Darren explained that it wasn’t necessary to replace all of my fence posts and managed to source the fencing panels cheaper from a local manufacturer. If you want an honest highly skilled, hardworking guy Darren’s your man. Can’t recommend him enough.

I have recently opened a trampolining and rebound therapy facility. My cash flow is much stretched at the moment and finding it difficult to meet the Health and Safety requirements needed for such a venture. Then I met Darren, not only did he help me write all of my risk assessments he carried out all of my PAT testing, installed all of my fire safety equipment, boxed in all of the pipework and electrics around the building as required by HSE, sorted out all of my heating issues with local LPG supplier, made bespoke wheelchair access ramps. But the cherry on the cake for me is the trampolining room wall padding, I was quoted in excess of 3K for this work to be carried out but Darren did it for less than 1K. He used floor safety matting I already had and introduced me to a new wall cladding material which did the job perfectly. I can’t thank him enough, the fact he is also fully DBS checked made everything so much easier.

Bounce & Cheer Education Sports Facility
On behalf of Bounce and Cheer Education (BACE), a new sports facility and Community Interest Company in Glossop, we would like to say thank you to Caretaking Support Services for everything they have done to help turn our dream into a reality. From joinery to problem solving. The list includes: Installation of accessible toilet room. Dressing and matting walls. Fire Evacuation systems and procedures. Site Joinery to improve accessibility. Legionella and Water Hygiene Risk Assessment. A variety of joinery amendments to doors, tables, chairs etc. General maintenance and mending eg. Servicing vacuum cleaners. The depth and breadth of knowledge on Health and Safety, Safeguarding and Disability and Inclusion was so important to us with the complexity of the project we were undertaking. Thanks from Emma and Hannah and all at BACE.
