About Richard Curtis

Whether it’s installing a new appliance, repairing gutters, assembling furniture or hanging pictures on your walls, you occasionally require professional expertise to undertake minor repairs and home improvement projects. And if you’re on the lookout for someone trustworthy and reliable as well as affordable, I can help! I am a retired police officer and now a general handyman providing an array of services that keeps your home in a perfect working order. I am nearing completion of my own conversion of my own detached home, which was featured on 'Grand Designs', into two semi-detached three-storey townhouses. I am capable of tackling most domestic jobs including simple electrics and plumbing. I am also a qualified jeweller and silversmith and as such am used to paying attention to detail. Whether you want me to re-grout your tiles, fix a leaking faucet or install window blinds, I work with precision to provide excellent results. I work quickly and neatly without cutting corners and I’m also happy to carry out gardening and general garden maintenance including fence construction and maintenance. I believe in offering fair prices to all and any jobs over £100 will attract a 10% discount. If that dripping tap is bothering you or you’ve been meaning to repair a door but haven’t still got around to it, I’m more than willing to be of service. Please get in touch and hope to hear from you soon.

IKEA Furniture Assembly
Karen A.'s review on May 02, 2019

Lovely guy. Very polite. Bit expensive for what I needed done. Should have gone with a per job quote and not per hour. Lesson learnt.

Picture Hanging
Nicola C.'s review on Mar 20, 2019

Richard came to our office to hang approximately 50 pictures and certificates following our office relocation. We found Richard to be extremely pleasant and very professional. He knew what he was doing, and got the job done without any issues. We would definitely recommend Richard and he will be the first person we turn to if needing any additional work.

Nana S.'s review on Mar 14, 2019

Richard was very professional. I had bits and pieces of work which he finished in a timely fashion. His work was very neat and great value. I had a lift top coffee table which was complex and could not assemble by myself but Richard did it very professionally with no issues. He fixed many things around the house and gave nice ideas which were welcome. I would recommend anytime!

Richard was polite and professional. Did what we wanted. Was helpful. Only point we weren't so happy with was the price. It was more than quoted.

Thank you for the positive review. I hope you will appreciate that a lot more time was spent carrying out the work than was originally anticipated. The original quote was to move furniture from the property and place it on the drive for collection by the local authority. This would have taken two hours at £20 per hour in line with the original quote. In the event the authority quoted at least £50 for removal of the items but were unable to move the furniture within your timescale and would certainly not have removed it from your property and so we arranged for me to hire a van at a cost of £40 and remove the furniture to a recycling facility. The amount of furniture and soft furnishings removed were in excess of what was originally agreed and required two trips to the recycle facility. The additional cost was for the extra three hours at £20 per hour but I did not charge you for the time taken to collect and return this vehicle, nor did I charge you for the fuel used. The extra hours meant that you benefitted from the 10% discount so you paid an extra £50.. less than the cost of the local authority and within your timescale. I accept that we should have discussed this in more detail and I will take this in to account in future.

Sealant and Grouting

I'd fully recommend Richard, he done a fantastic job of my bathroom and all at a very reasonable price. 5* service.
