About Cole Home Improvements & Handyman Services

I have been operating across Central London for over 18 years and now have an extensive before/after portfolio, including repeat clients and recommendations. As a multi-skilled pro my work is very much hands-on, however I often take on the role of project manager for medium sized jobs for which I have a small team of reliable professional tradesmen to call upon who collectively provide all aspects of property refurbishment.

Interior Painting
B J.'s review on Sep 09, 2019

We used Cole Home Improvements for a number of jobs to freshen up our flat. Repainting walls, bathroom re-grouting, window repair and an assortment of odd jobs. We found Royston to be highly trustworthy and were very happy with all the work done. We would use him again and would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Wallpaper Installation or Repair
Sladjana k.'s review on May 09, 2019

Not reliable cost us more to fix his mistakes than the job. (This job was back in November 2018)

Dear Sladjana Thank you for your feedback. Sadly I was in a very traumatic personal period which impacted upon your job. I did forget the strict layout of the wallpaper you requested and went ahead with a normal installation process. I think a 1 star rating is a bit harsh especially since you vetted my online credentials and chose me from previous reviews, the job was more than wallpapering which you signed off and paid for and I or my insurers would have happily covered your losses had I been given the opportunity and finally had you answered my 2 attempts to make contact with you to discuss making amends after you took 7 months to send in your review, this may have turned out differently.

Home Renovation
Rob H.'s review on Nov 07, 2018

Royston has provided a range of services: plastering, painting and decorating, general renovation. All have been done well. When, for larger jobs he's needed to bring a team in, he's managed the team well, communicating effectively with me and ensured the job gets done to a good level of quality. Any problems that have arisen, or changes required to the job spec, have been dealt with with a very positive style. I'll use his services again.

Tile Installation and Replacement
Jeff C.'s review on Nov 04, 2018

It was a pleasure working with Royston. He responded quickly to my wife's initial email, made a convenient applointment to meet me at the job site, provided a detailed quotation for the job, worked professionally with me on the scope and price, and completed the job on time and at a high quality. He dealt professionally with some quirks of the job and left me completely satisfied with the end result. The "quirks" included helping to chose a modestly priced tile that closely matched existing bathroom tile as well as the delivery by the DIY vendor of a shower screen that wasn't actually the one we ordered. I have high confidence in Royston and would work would gladly hire him again.

Door Installation
Tanja H.'s review on Oct 21, 2018

Royston did a great job in fitting a firedoor including all the relevant door furniture. He quickly suggested viable alternatives when matters became a bit complicated. Royston is very friendly and helpful and a good singer. I would certainly recommend him.

Door Installation
Matthew W.'s review on Oct 13, 2018

A job well done. While Royston's was not the cheapest quotation we received he did take everything into account and ultimately charged me what what he quoted, even though the job took a little longer to complete. I would highly recommend Royston and will use him again in the future. Royston is honest hard working and loves to sing! Thanks mate!

Sealant and Grouting
Emma S.'s review on Jan 12, 2018

Royston has carried out a number of different small jobs for me, including painting, fixing bathroom fixtures, installing a hand rail and extractor fan. He is really friendly, always replies quickly to queries and has always done a good job. He has been very persistent when there have been tricky problems to fix, and is very hard working willing to help.
