RussI carry out property maintenance an odd jobs in a handyman capacity in and around Hemel Hempstead. The work I can do is varied and includes aspects of many different trades and skills.

If you need a regular handyman or a one off job, then please do call!

I take pride in my work and aim to get things as good as I can. This means work will be of a high quality and I am happy to guarantee work that I undertake. There may be instances when I feel a professional decorator, plasterer, plumber or carpenter will achieve a better degree of quality in tricky aspects of work. In these situations I will make you aware of my thoughts and leave the choice to you.

Although based in Watford, I cover more or less a 10 mile radius which includes St Albans, Berkhamsted, Croxley and Rickmansworth.
