About Handyman Leicester - Handyman in Leicester, LE4 2JB

Hello, my name is Stuart Price.

I was previously listed as SP Kitchens and Bathrooms, but now I trade under the heading of "Handyman Leicester." This is why you will see many pictures and reviews of kitchens and bathrooms.

I decided to change to the Handyman listing because I am happy to do smaller jobs now, working part time, which is more in line with my age.

My number one trade is carpentry, which I've done since leaving school in 1976. I was placed on a three year apprenticeship with the company that I worked for, with a further two years of advanced craft following on from that. This amounts to five years of college training in addition to working with qualified tradesmen who taught me a lot of what I know.

After six years of working for that particular company, I went to work self employed, which I've done ever since.

In all that time, I have worked on every aspect of carpentry, specialised in office refurbishment and partitioning, kitchen fitting - which meant working as a MFI fitter for ten years, before concentrating mainly on bathroom fitting.

This amount of time in the trade has given me a wealth of knowledge and practical skills for dealing with both Commercial and Domestic projects and if you ask anyone that knows me, they will tell you that I am a totally reliable and trustworthy tradesman.

I have pride in my reputation for having both an excellent eye for detail and providing the best finish possible. I will always endeavour to do my best work, giving each job the attention to detail it deserves, while never cutting corners.

To me, giving great customer service and providing total job satisfaction are my primary aims.

Communicating with the customer and advising of recommendations so that you get the best job possible are also very important.

I work mainly on Domestic projects now, where I can utilise all my years of skill and experience. I always pride myself in the quality and finish of all my work.

Many years ago ago, I was contracted to the Local Authority Council for a while where my work was strictly monitored by the clerk of works. My work consistently earned me high grades from the authority for high standard and excellent quality.

Now, as you can imagine, over the years I've built up an excellent knowledge of additional skills including:

  • Plumbing
  • Tiling
  • Plastering
  • Painting and decorating

My carpentry background is an excellent foundation for the work I do now because I am good at fixing, fitting, levelling and giving attention to detail. These were essential requirements for any kitchen or bathroom job.

In my own words: "I am from the old school of tradesmen," so I take pride in my work and like to do a thorough job for my customers without cutting corners.

Please note that a good job takes extra time, but it's worth it. You can't have both a quick job and a thorough one - they don't go together. A good job takes longer to complete!

Why don't you call me for a friendly chat to discuss your requirements? Better still, send me an email to: s.price627@ntlworld.com I guarantee a friendly, clean and tidy service.

While you're at it remember to check out my website for more pictures and information: www.handyman-leicester.uk

Now... you will notice by looking at my reviews that some people have marked me down for cleanliness and time keeping.

May I point out to you that I am one of the tidiest and most organised tradesmen around, but you can't have work done without creating disruption, dust or introducing tools and equipment to the job.

If you have 100 year old plaster that needs knocking off, the dust inevitably carries through the air and lands on every surface available I'm afraid. There's nothing I can do about this and also remember, that it's your dust, not mine!

As for time keeping. My starting time these days will be around 9.00 am. This is more comfortable for me now, but, even though I start at this later time, I still get through a fair bit of work in a day.

One other thing where customers have niggled concerns the value for money. Some people have no idea of value for money. The one's that do value it, appreciate my communication skills, expert advice, attention to detail with no cutting corners and a thoroughly neat job that is well secured in every department.

I will give you my best work based on my skills and experience in the shortest time that I can do it in. Please bear in mind that I am no spring chicken anymore and I never work till late in the evenings, nor at weekends. I can only do what I can do in a normal working day at the pace that my body will allow.

Now for my requirements.

What I require from you is a part payment up front on a large job to be agreed between us, with the final payment on completion. I also expect you to fill in my feedback form for Trustatrader with the marks that are in line with the service and attention to detail that I pour into your job.

One other thing: I hate it when people try to barter and expect me to do more work for less money. It's all about appreciation and that's what I would like from you.

On that final note, I look forward to hearing from you. Why don't you give me a call and I will see if I can help you.

Please mention Trustatrader when calling. Thank you.

    "After reading Stuart’s introduction to his experience and skills I new this could be the tradesman for me. I called him up to give me a quote, he came round straight the way to do this and then I received a detailed quote which was amazing compared to any other tradesman quote that I’ve had in the past. A long story short you will not be disappointed with the finish of his work and the time he takes to get things perfect!"
