Another thumbs up for Colin. We have used him numerous times over the years for painting and smaller odd jobs. We have always been extremely happy with his work and his prices are very reasonable. He's always gone out of his way to complete jobs quickly and he's never let us down. Couldn't recommend him more highly!

I used Collin for the first time yesterday and couldn't be more pleased. He came to look at the many small jobs I had when he said he would, and spent about half an hour here patiently listing them all and answering my questions. He had a calm, can do approach to everything and arranged to come back in two days. He came when he said he would and worked really hard , and at a good pace throughout, over five hours. All were small jobs like fixing broken cupboards, dismantling furniture, hanging pictures, putting up shelves. He worked really hard the whole time and didn't mind at all when I added more jobs I hadn't mentioned or changed my mind about things as he was working. He was a really nice bloke. I am thrilled to have all these jobs done, and at a very reasonable rate. I wouldn't hesitate to use him again and recommend him highly. Thank you Collin!

Colin is an absolute Godsend... over many years now he has done a number of jobs for me, both large and small. His decorating skills are great, but he has also done more straightforward things such as putting up curtain poles and fixing brickwork. He is a local friendly chap and his charges are reasonable. Thanks Colin!

Okay so does anyone have Colin's actual e-mail address as the one in the IP does not seem to work? THANKS!

This one should work. I've always found it easier to get him on phone or text though as not sure he checks his email during the day.

Recently had Colin complete various painting/tiling/carpentry/plastering jobs around the house. His work was excellent (especially the tiling) and i found him to be a very trustworthy/hardworking and nice bloke whose prices are very reasonable. Would highly recommend for all the handyman jobs you never get around to getting done!

His number is 07754691541, email cdatthehorses@hotmail.com

Cheers
Alec

Just used Colin to pressure wash and stain my decking and then to clean the paving +restoring a bit of garden furniture. As usual prompt, cheerful, reasonable cost and job well done.

We've used Colin for years now, and he's just done another great job for us (photo attached). He knocked through a wall between our bedroom and study, decorated the bedroom, and hung the curtain poles and mirror. He's a lovely, reliable, and trustworthy guy and I wholeheartedly recommend him. We love our new bedroom Colin - thanks very much!!

I also wanted to post a glowing recommendation for Colin who assembled our son's new bunk bed on Saturday. I found him during a handyman search on the EDF and felt that the recommendations for his services seemed the most consistent. I can see why. This is a genuine job for Colin (rather something he juggles with other things) so he prioritises his clients. We found him to be efficient, cheerful and professional. He's coming back next week to hang some pictures for us.

Once again, Colin came round promptly and fixed a wall for me (that some other workman had messed up). He is up for any jobs, big or small and has never disappointed.

Colin has recently done another great job for us. Revamped and painted our tired looking front door, and porch area. Reliable, cheerful and good value, as always. Thanks Colin!

Colin has worked for me for over 3 years doing a range of jobs including tiling, painting, garden landscaping, fencing, replacing broken window glass and brick masonry.

he is lovely, always on time, good rates and extremely efficient.

i have recommended to neighbours who feel the same about his professionalism.

Definitely couldn't run my home without him!

I can highly recommend Colin Deery for handyman work. I found his number on this forum and he re-felted my shed room, tiled an area in front of my fire and fitted some alcove shelves.The quality of workmanship is excellent and Colin just cracks on with it and thus completed the work in very good time. He's a really nice bloke too!

Found Colin via this forum. We are new to the area and so have lots of odd jobs and decorating to do in our house.
Working with Colin was a pleasure, as not only does he do a good job, but if he has to do a couple of extra things in addition to the original quote, he does them without quibble. Tradesmen I've worked with before can refuse to paint an extra corner of a room or bang an extra couple of nails in if it wasn't what they agreed to in the first place.
Very flexible, personable guy. He painted our lounge walls, ceiling and skirting boards and put up a couple of shelves for us.

The lovely Colin has just finished a small job for me .Came round at short notice and figured out a way to do something that had defeated other lesser mortals .

I've not found all the recommendations on this forum live up to the hype - but Colin does .Great guy .

Another mention for Colin - helped us with some handyman jobs including hanging pictures and a difficult mirror. A nice guy who gets the job done to a high standard with minimal fuss - highly recommended.

Colin has just done another excellent job....as usual very amendable for last minute 'add ons' and always a fair price

Yet another glowing recommendation for Colin! After being turned down by other handymen and a few extortionate quotes, Colin came and started work on the front of our house. He repaired the coving around the door, painted the door, step and bay window. He fixed the wall and honestly the house looks so great! He did a really great job and was very supportive throughout, giving me advice on which paint to buy and sometimes even fetching the materials himself.

He also did some work in the garden, fixed the shed, jetwashing, painting the wall.

All of this comes with a smile! Very trustworthy too.

We've called on Colin a couple of times in the last week. He's fixed a gate, put up a picture frame, put together some drawers, put on some roof racks. Very reasonable, prompt and a top bloke.

Hi, Another top recommendation for Colin!

He has recently completed a lot of work in my home, such as tiling, wallpapering, painting walls and ceilings, hanging shelves, you name it. He has done a few rooms in my home now. He is very reasonable, and his work is very good. I'm well impressed! He's also a very nice guy! I will definitely be using him again when very soon.. Oh, I also gave him my house keys everyday, very trustworthy :-)

Another recommendation for Colin - he has repainted the walls and ceiling of our very large living/kitchen/dining room. Done an excellent job, advised us on paint, finished when he said he would and the place looks fab! He is also a pleasure to work with, lovely man.

Really happy with the service provided by Colin Deery - I needed a couple of cat flaps fitting pronto, Colin came out on a Sunday morning fitted the flaps as quoted (very reasonable) and did 4 other odd-jobs for hardly any extra. Highly recommend

Thank Goodness for Colin! I texted him yesterday about a faulty overflow pipe at a flat that we rent and he was over there this morning to sort it out for us (having picked up the keys from the estate agents en route). Hes great - honest, reliable, good value and lovely with it.

Colin has just sorted out my wooden bike shed which was much in need of putting back together .Same with our side entrance .

He was quick and resourceful - always able to find a soloution to a problem ( our neighbour doesn't like to have anything touching his property and this makes securing things difficult ) - cheerful and very reasonable .

A few years ago Colin put up a large area of decking. Last week he maintained it as usual by cleaning, pressure washing and varnishing it. Prompt and reliable as always and decking looking great. I would always recommend Colin for any jobs that need doing, he has never let me down.
