Richmond Works My Faqs

Faqs

 

What kind of decorating jobs do you do?

I can do any kind of decorating job, large or small but regardless of the job size, I pride myself on being a master craftsman and delivering a flawless result that really enhances your home.

 

The only work I can’t bring myself to do is shoddy work, I’ll never “just slap a bit of paint on a ceiling” as it is disrespectful to the property, the owner and it doesn’t allow me to display the hard won skills I’ve acquired over the years.

 


 

What kind of handyman jobs do you do?
If you can imagine it, I can do it, from putting up shelves and curtains to fixing fences and fitting kitchens. You can check out a list of my most commonly requested services on the handyman page, but this list really doesn’t cover everything so just ask if you’re not sure. I’ll always welcome a call from you or you can stop me

 

if you see me around town walking my dog, Sasha loves meeting new people and is very friendly! If you need qualified tradesmen as part of a job, I know a great plumber and electrician who have both done work for me in my own home.

 


 

Do you guarantee your work?
All decorating work and new installations (fitting cabinets etc.) are guaranteed for 12 months and in the unlikely event of you having a problem I’ll be round to put it right ASAP. For repairs I can’t offer a one size fits all guarantee but my reputation, both in the local area andon Checkatrade, is the lifeblood of my business and I’d never do anything to compromisethat, so if you’re not happy I’ll do my best to put a smile back on your face.

 

A customer testimonial or a referral to someone’s friend is the ultimate validation of everything that I do and I work hard to earn them on every job, to my mind that’s worth as much as

any guarantee..

 


 

Do you do free estimates?
Yes! I will always try to give you an estimate over the phone but for bigger jobs it may be necessary to visit the property before I can provide the estimate. I try to visit at the most convenient time for you and get out from under your feet as soon as I can, there’s no charge for this and no obligation.

 


 

Who will come to do the work?
I do all the work myself, with the exception of where we have mutually agreed that we will engage a qualified tradesperson to complete electrical or plumbing work. I have to be sure of delivering a perfect end result for you and until I meet someone who has the same skills and high standards as I have to work with, that means doing every last job myself.

 


 

Do you work weekends or evenings?
I can work evenings or weekends by arrangement but most people prefer that I do the work whilst they are at work to minimise disruption. If you have a preference for work being completed at a specific time then of course this can be arranged.

 


 

Where do you work?
I spend most of my time working in South West London but sometimes I am able to work for customers outside the area. It’s always worth giving me a call to check as you never know and even if I can’t help I might be able to recommend someone who I know is reliable who can.

 


 

How do I pay?
You can pay by cheque, cash or bank transfer.

 


 

Are you insured?
I have full public liability insurance and you’re welcome to see a copy of the policy documents

before I begin work.

 


 

Do you give fixed appointment times?
I believe that part of the value that I offer is convenience for you and part of that is punctuality and working to your schedule not trying to make you fit mine. Not only do you get a set appointment time, you can choose when best suits you too.

 


 

Do you take away packaging and boxes/tidy up after a job?
Small amounts of rubbish I remove myself when I go; for larger volumes I can arrange rubbish collection and disposal for you if required. At the end of every day on a job I always tidy up and leave the work site as neat as possible, at the end of the job I clean up until the area is as pristine as when I began.

 


 

I hope this covers the questions you have, but please get in touch if there’s something you want to ask that I haven’t addressed here.
