Recommendation: Spoiltdog aka Andy


Crack

Recommended Posts

Hi,


I just wanted to recommend Andy Jacobs (aka Spoiltdog) of Andyman Services for any interior decorating jobs you may want doing. We hired Andy to decorate our landings and staircases, as well as re-laying our hall flooring. He provided a very reasonable quote, which included stripping the walls and removing tiles from the floor. Andy's work was impeccable, and his approach was helpful and professional. He made sure that he tidied up after himself, and even hoovered the carpet on the stairs after stripping the walls (leaving the stairs cleaner than we'd left them in the first place!). It was lovely to come home each evening to find beautifully painted walls, and a clean and tidy house. As well as being a first-class decorator, Andy is also a lovely and funny chap, and it was a joy to have him decorating our house. I can't recommend him highly enough!

I'd also like to recommend Andy - he did some handyman work for me in December and was really helpful and friendly. He was prompt and efficient and when it turned out a lock I asked him to fit was broken, came back later that day with a new one and sorted it. All for a very reasonable price.

I'll definitely be asking him first next time I need some work doing.

I also want to recommend Andy - he did my guttering (in the snow!) and sorted out some electrics and plumbing for me before Christmas.


Reliable, reasonble and a very nice chap (even brough Christmas presents for my two smal children!).


A big thumbs up from me.

Hi - I just want to add my recommendation for Andy. He's done a couple of work in my flat already, last year and this year. Andy is always professional in his approach and provided an honest opinion on what works need to be done. The cost is very reasonable and Im very happy with the finished work. I would definitely use Andy for future work in the flat.


The only negative thing I would say is I didnt get a christmas present like the other customer :(

agree with other posters - Andy and his colleague did a very good job clearing our gutters and installing pigeon spikes - horrible job quite frankly as the pigeons had done their worst on our roof! Very friendly and efficient.

I'd like to add to the many gushing recommendations for Andy of Andyman Services.


I've recently moved into the area and searched the forum for a handyman to fix some leaking gutters.


Thought Andy did a great job at a very reasonable cost. Prompt, skilled and tidy - you couldn't ask for more and I'd definitely book him again.

After having read all the really positive feedback I also used Andy (Andyman Services) to paint an upstairs bedroom and fit shelves into two alcoves in the living room. The most important was the price and Andy gave me a an extremely competitive quote.


Andy is an extremely professional and friendly person who seems to really care about the quality of his work as well as keeping the customer satisfied. He has an attention to detail and even recommending his own ideas which not only met what I wanted but also seemed to fit in with my budget! Andy is also someone I trusted to leave him with keys to the house and there are not many people you can do that with! The place was left clean and tidy each day. The finish was great. I have attached a couple of photos of the shelves.


I cannot recommend him enough, in fact I have decided to use him again to do some work in the bathroom!

Hi,


I'd just like to add my recommendation for Andy, AKA spoiltdog. We recently had him and his helper Richard in to do a spot of painting in our house that was looking a bit tired.


It wasn't a huge job (1 large bedroom, 1 Bathroom and upstairs and downstairs hall, walls, ceilings and woodwork) but he did not turn his nose up at the work, or add on a premium. This was especially appreciated because he had to come all the way out to the South Croydon/Caterham borders for this job (I am an ex crystal palace resident, and used to frequent this website and virtual norwood when looking for workmen in the past, and prefer to use info areas I trust)


His quote was very reasonable given the very high standard of the work, and what I especially appreciated was the fact that he gave me quite a lot of good advice about the job when we were scoping it (i.e. what paints work best, what materials to save money on etc).


Also importantly he got the job done very quickly (we are expecting our 1st child any day now, so wanted it finished) and also left the area very tidy.


I would certainly use him again and and you would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not at least get him in to quote for a job (and he will travel!).


Cheers,


Pat

This is a long overdue recommendation (sorry Andy!!)


I contacted Andy via the boards late last year as we'd just bought a house in SE4 and needed the house painting from top to bottom (4 beds, 3 receptions etc.) However, we needed it doing asap - as in at the weekend and we made contact 3 or 4 days before, as we were about to move in...


This didn't seem to be an issue for Andy and he came around to qoute for the work telling me he had a team on standby and the job would indeed be completed on time - to be fair I was a tad sceptical though did go ahead let him take the job on.


What can I say, along with his guys he delivered the job no problems - working through the night - one time I called in a little after 6am having dropped the missus off and there he was beavering away, I was very impressed. He does like a chat, but cannot fault his work ethic and the job done.


After we moved in he came back to 'touch up' various scrapes caused by the move.


Cheers Andy (Craig & Shelley, Chudleigh Road.)

Cheers Andy, was it really 7 months back, time has flown!


We're still in South America, currently sat in Buenos Aires Airport waiting on a flight to Peru - there for three weeks before heading off to Asia, hoping to be back later in the year. You can keep track/look at phots here: www.crashwilliams.wordpress.com I'll remind Shelley of her offer re the curry for when we get back - I'll say you've been chasing her up!


Anyway, hope all is well, take care and if anyone needs a decent job doing then give Andy a call!

I would also recommend Andy. He has just completed our 'snagging list'- lots of jobs big and small - to a good standard, has been realiable, amenable, communicative, true to his word re price and timescale and pleasant too. Thank you Andy. It is such a relief to have the kitchen wall and ceiling finally sorted! Kate (tu)

I would also like to recommend Andy and Richard. I actually found them on the Sydenham forum and asked him to quote for some tiling in a shower enclosure. His work was very thorough and to a good standard and at a reasonable price. They are both friendly chaps who I'd use for future jobs!

Hi


I can add my recommendation for Andy who recently spruced up my bathroom. He gave a competitive quote, produced a good standard of work and came back to do some further bits and pieces which needed tidying up. More importantly for me, Andy was trustworthy and communicative.

    • We lost a beloved toy fox on lordship lane, Saturday 2nd march in the afternoon. He has cute green overalls. Was hand knitted and a special gift. If anyone happened to pick him up, we’d be very grateful for his safe return!  Imogen  07791842153.
    • I hope you never run into the last character eating chicken on my bus-he was an older guy, and when he'd finished his food, removed his dentures and picked them clean 😗 I'm still getting over it!
    • We once chose a decorator based on a long history of good reviews on here. It didn’t occur to us that he would ‘outsource’ the work to someone else who did a pretty poor job. Lesson learned. Always check that the person with the good reviews will be actually doing the work.
    • Openreach is a wholly owned subsidiary of BT Group but is obliged under regulation to act even-handedly with BT UK and all other of its wholesale customers - that is that all companies supplying services through the Openreach local Network must be treated similarly - so BT Retail has no better, or hopefully worse, access to Openreach as does any other competing company. Openreach has 'passed' much of East Dulwich with fibre to the premises (FTTP) capability.  BT is rebranding all its Retail services to 'EE' (that is, services to private/ residential customers) and I believe to SMEs as well. It is keeping the BT brand as a marketing name for its Major Business business. The maximum speed for FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) services is about 60-70MG to the household router - which is described I believe by some estate agents as superfast, curiously. The real FTTP services in ED are at the moment 500 or 1000MG to the router, and broadly achieve quite close to that, although speeds to the apparatus via WiFi are much less. To get actual benefit of the fibre speed you will need an ethernet network internally.
