Hands-on help with all those little jobs that need doing ... and some of the bigger ones too!

handy Knight

For over 20 years Andrew Knight has repaired & refurbished homes for his own family & for friends. Armed with that experience, he has started a business specialising mainly in the smaller jobs that larger companies simply aren't interested in.

Handy Knight, based in Shibden near Halifax, offers handyman services throughout Calderdale & surrounding areas.

Many people don't have the time, inclination, knowledge or specialist tools required to do DIY tasks themselves, but can't find a tradesman willing to take on smaller jobs.

For example it can be difficult to get a plumber to reseal a leaky shower. Plumbers are usually geared up for larger jobs, like installing a complete bathroom or heating system.

Many people have lists of different smaller jobs, e.g. a leaky shower; a sticking door; cracks in a wall & a broken dimmer switch. They're then faced with the problems of firstly finding plumbers, carpenters, decorators & electricians, (none of whom are really interested in small jobs) & secondly the often considerable expense of four separate call out charges.

Also many specialised tradesmen will only charge per full day regardless of how long the job actually takes them. That's where a professional handyman can save you time, money & inconvenience by being able to do all those four jobs at a reasonable cost.

With larger jobs, you're better off employing a specialist because they are geared up for specific tasks & are likely to be faster & cheaper - though Handy Knight is well versed in making good all the bits they might have missed!

Painting & decorating services for single rooms and smaller outside projects - the sort of job that professional decorators feel are too small to bother with.

If you have a really large decorating project, or require the outside of your house painted you will be better off using a specialist painter & decorator.
