Customer Review
 
Cliff has done work for us on a number of occasions, involving decorating, woodwork, and most recently, plumbing. These included fitting a desk for a study area, painting the lounge and utility areas (plus some remedial work to the kitchen), and replacing a sink waste unit.
 
Cost: £1000
 

"On every occasion Cliff's work has been of the highest standard, and work areas have been left very clean and tidy. He is highly professional in his approach to work, arriving promptly and staying until the job is finished. His pricing is very fair and represents excellent value for money; all in all one of our 'trusted tradesmen'. We have been happy to recommend him to our immediate neighbours, and would be pleased to recommend him more widely."

Customer Review
 
The brief for the job was to work to given plans, to allow provision of an en-suite cloakroom to a bedroom. Overall floor area of bedroom was to be retained by careful re-partitioning and room fitted out with units to maximize storage opportunities. New accessibility to be provided into dormer loft space. Room to be painted and decorated upon completion.

"Handi Mac is a one man operation. Cliff (Handi Mac) is a highly skilled craftsman of many attributes who is completely trustworthy and respectful of the home environment. He works diligently, staying on the task each day and always striving for best finish.
I am delighted with the work he has just completed for me; by it's very nature, this could not possibly have been done without disruption to the home but he ensured that at the end of each day/week work areas were left in tidy state.
We fully discussed points as they arose and Cliff suggested rather than inserting an extractor fan I might like to consider a small velux roof window. This has been a wonderful addition to the project and now floods the en-suite with light. It also allows for ventilation throughout the upper floor of the property. Far nicer way of satisfying building regulations than an extractor.
Cliff completed every element of the job apart from the main plastering which being a dormer roof involved many angles. Units were recommended and fitted by Cliff, they are of very good quality and robust construction. He takes pride in his work and as such appreciates working with quality materials. The en-suite now part-tiled looks great.
I have no hesitation in recommending Cliff for any household improvement or repairs as he will always strive to come up with a solution. My refurbishment is a great success. Many thanks for making it a reality."

Complete new bathroom suite, separate shower cubicle, tiling and paint work

"I would highly recommend Cliff (Handymac). I have used him on a number of occasions for various jobs within my home. I have found him to be reliable, very competitive and guaranteed to do an excellent job be it big or small."
 
 

A tired looking bathroom was removed and readied for tiling.

Tiling underway in shower with decorative tile insert

Tiling complete with Mira shower installed and 90cm shower screen.

Double ended bath installed with solid bath panel.

Basin and back to the wall toilet, surely the way forward. Floor to be 'Amtico' in due course.

Installed new bathroom by removing existing disabled shower, and replacing with new P bath and shower, WC and wash hand basin, as well as new waterproof floor covering, and removal of wet wall and tiling of whole room.
 
Cost: £2920
 

"Prior to contracting Cliff to carry out a complete bathroom refurbishment, he had been very helpful refitting some kitchen cupboard doors. When we asked Cliff to quote for a new bathroom he quickly provided a complete quote and advised us on product and sourced the bath, shower, WC and washhandbasin and even chose the taps that would look best!! Everything was delivered to the house, we didn't have to do anything other than choose the wall tiles and the floor covering. Everything Cliff did, from removing the old shower units to final finishes was done with great skill and care and attention to detail. We are delighted with the final result. We would highly recommend Cliff, he is a skilled joiner, and is highly capable in a very wide range of building skills from tiling, plastering, painting, plumbing and fitting very nice bathrooms! He always arrived on time, and cleaned up at the end of each day. We would therefore have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone thinking about having some work done in their house. Great Job!!"
 
 

A tired looking bathroom with disabled shower was removed.

Basin and toilet would remain in the same position this time.

A Cooke and Lewis Adelphi showerbath and screen was chosen.

The Mira 'Sprint' shower is good value

A waterproof 'Aqua-Step' floor, with matching skirting, was laid.
