Jim the Handyman

How can I help you?

I've always taken a keen interest in how things work and I enjoy building and fixing things. I have good practical and problem solving skills and a whole lot of property repair experience. I like to take time to understand what customers want to achieve and to deliver a quality job for them.

My first job was on the maintenance team at the Cornwall Coliseum at Carlyon Bay near St Austell. Here we maintained the large premises of this fantastic music venue, now sadly closed and demolished. My property maintenance skills really started to grow once I was running Cornish Quay Holidays Limited. I handled most of the call-outs to a portfolio of up to sixty properties, and believe me where holiday visitors are concerned anything can happen. From leaks to broken windows to people getting locked out you never knew what would happen next and it all had to be repaired quickly. During the twenty years that I ran this business I also refurbished a number of properties including my own home at Crows Nest. I've tackled most things over the years but if a job is too big or something I can't handle I will let you know.

Since starting out as a full-time professional Handyman, I have found it very rewarding completing a wide range of jobs for customers in and around East Cornwall. You never stop learning and every job I do adds to my experience. I enjoy meeting new people and visiting a wide range of properties each week.
