I would like to thank people who recommended Aston here. After reading many people recommended Aston at East Dulwich Forum, I have contacted him and asked him to re-hang my front door. Although he was booked up for a while, he still made time to come around to my home to check it up prior to the work. On a day of the job, he was punctual, friendly and thorough with his work despite our door wasn't ideal condition. He was also a great communicator and he made sure there was no misunderstanding between us (confirmation of time, date and materials required). I am very happy to have found him and would definitely ask him again to do more job in future.

I found Aston's name via this thread when I was looking for someone to hang a shelf and a mirror, and, like everyone else, I was very happy with his work. He was prompt and efficient, insisted on hoovering up the residual dust, and generally just seemed like a very kind person. If I need more work done in future I'll definitely ring him again.

Thank you for all the recommendation on this thread. As a result I contact Aston and he did a great job putting up and painting a new gate for us. He even sourced materials for me, remained entirely cheerful when it ended up being a bigger job than expected and cleared up brilliantly. We will definitely be calling on him again!

I would also recommend Aston...

In the last two days he has completely cleared our list of odd jobs: hanging about 7 pictures and a fire blanket, replacing the hinges on the garden gate and mending the fence, attaching a toilet roll holder to the wall, re-attaching a a couple of loose bathroom fittings to a tiled wall, repairing a water damaged ceiling, putting up a ceiling rose, and filling countless (at least 20) holes of varying sizes in the walls, including sanding them and priming reading for painting.

He came prepared with all the kit, was reliable, punctual, polite, friendly (my kids loved him), and cleaned up after himself. Not sure what else you could ask for!

Hi, Aston came today to put up a kitchen cupboard for us. He arrived bang on time, communicated options throughout the job, did excellent work and tidied up afterwards. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a handyman.

I am pleased to recommend Aston. I contacted him after reading this thread and he promptly replied, established what I wanted to be done and arranged a time. He was punctual, discussed the various jobs that I requested and carried them out thoroughly and efficiently. He was very organised, had all the necessary tools available, worked quickly and ensured that he cleaned up any debris.
I shall definitely be in touch with Aston in the near future with a request to complete a number of other tasks which still need attention.

Another recommendation for Aston!
I contacted him due to the recommendations here and would happily recommend him to others.
He undertook the work to a high standard and helpfully supplied the items needed for the work I needed doing.
Would use Aston again.

We are also pleased to recommend Aston! Came round to fit a shower screen, build an ottoman bed, do some electrical work with the lights and a number of other smaller jobs around the flat. Friendly and trustworthy guy who takes pride in his work. We will certainly be calling on him again in the future!!!

Another recommendation for Aston. He replaced a floorboard and hung a door for us last week. Will definitely be contacting him again for work in the future.

We have used Aston before with brilliant results when he attach a tall heavy cabinet to the bathroom wall after I had failed miserably. This week I had decided to put up a new roller blind in my daughter's bedroom myself thinking it an easy job!!I couldn't drill very far into the wall - something wasn't right SO CALL ASTON!! We needed the blind up within a few days and Aston was able to oblige. I had met Aston before but my wife hadn't and she agrees with me and the many many reviews on this forum that Aston is fantastic - a real asset to the local community. I have also learnt that those jobs I sometimes think of as straightforward can be far from that unless you really know what you are doing. Aston does know what he is doing and his rates are reasonable and competitive- even more so because of the quality of his work and general service. So next time if it's much more than banging in a picture hook and there is any risk of mucking it up, I know who I will be contacting.....!

Another +1 for Aston - he did a few different jobs for us; filling/painting my dodgy polyfilla'd wall attempts, installing a combination lock on an outside gate, remodelling some coving around a window, and varnishing some interior doors. All done well on time and to a great standard. I'll definitely be asking him to come back when I've built up another list!

I'd like to add another recommendation for Aston. Aston came and fitted a cat flap, fixed hinges on a built in washing machine door, and put up two trellises - all in the space of an hour. He is an excellent handyman. He is capable of taking on all kinds of jobs and finishing them all to a very high standard. I will definitely use Aston again!

Another recommendation for Aston - he replaced the roof on our shed a few months back after it was leaking and cut down some large branches that were overhanging it. All nice and dry now after a lot of heavy rain! Aston is a really nice guy, sent me pictures of the work before and after, turned up on time and was great at communicating. Highly recommend and we'll definitely be contacting him again for future jobs.

I can also recommend Aston - he fitted our cat flap in record time with very little mess and cleaned up expertly after. And very affordable work. Will be calling him again for other jobs in the future!

I booked Aston as a result of all the recommendations on the EDF, he worked at my home today and he was fantastic. He is very versatile in what he can do - this morning he put together an IKEA flat pack three drawer unit, and disposed of my old one, refixed a door knob, went out to buy then replaced a variety of bulbs in central lights in very high ceilings, loosened a tap which had become stuck, and did many other things, all for a good price, and quickly. He was also very clear about which jobs he thought I would need to get in specialist help for, and I greatly appreciated that he did not just carry on regardless on those items. He has a very nice attitude, never making me feel stupid for being unable to do the jobs myself. He also cleaned up after afterwards without being asked. I will definitely be using him again, and consider myself lucky to have "found" him.

Just wanted to add my recommendation to the many others. Aston came to put up my new curtain rail and blinds on Monday. He did a perfect job with the curtain rail but he tactfully pointed out that the blinds I had supplied were a bit too tight for the space. I appreciated that he didn't plough on regardless - his priority was that I be happy with the finished product. I am delighted with his work putting up the curtain rail and am pleased that he will be coming back to fit the blinds. He is professional, punctual, and friendly too.

Hi All
Fabulous recommendations - can someone who has used Aston PM me with a rough idea with his day / half day or hourly price so I know ballpark.
Thanks very much!

I'd like to add my recommendation to the many above, all well deserved. Aston fixed a broken door for me that had defeated many before him! Good communication, reasonable rates and skilled work.

I just hired Aston to fix some broken drawers in my kitchen. He was easy to get hold of and 2 days later the job was complete!

Thanks again

Just adding my recommendation. Aston did a great job fixing my kitchen units that were on the verge of coming off the wall. He arrived promptly, explained to me what he was doing, tidied up afterwards, etc. Would not hesitate to recommend him.

Aston's just finished his second batch of work for us and again, great quality finish, clean, tidy and finished punctually. Another +1!

Yep. Aston came round the day after I contacted him to fit a pulley airer. Excellent man. I'm going to make a list of those things I don't trust myself to do. For this amount of recommendations, I figured he'd be a good bet (considering how hard it is to judge - we've all been bitten by that one!) and he was great.

Aston helped me out again this week with a problem door. As before he was prompt efficient and very nice to deal with.

Ive had Aston come round before and was very pleased with his work and approach so booked him again this week. Hes very meticulous, hard working and a pleasure to have in your home. If you are looking for someone who will do a job really well, Id definitely recommend you contact him! His number is: ‭+44 7490 947355‬

I can also confirm that Aston is ace. So nice and helpful and quick. I have used him twice now and each time been entirely happy with the service. He is now our go-to handyman both at my work in Peckham and at home.
