I had a number of jobs carried out by Agim and Geoff in one visit. All were completed to a very satisfactory and high standard. They checked each job to see what my requirements were and carried out the work to this specification. They also made a some very valid suggestions to ensure that a couple of the jobs were completed to a professional standard. I was very happy with the work done.

Ross and his team built a custom 'catio' for my cats. This is a structure that covers a window on the ground floor of my property on the patio so my cats can have safe outdoor space. Ross understood the brief right away and when the team came to build it I was really impressed with the ingenuity of the design and the quality of the work. There were a few small tweaks that needed done once the cats began to use the space and Ross was quick to make the changes and finish the work. Now my cats have safe, outdoor space that they use a lot and has really added to the quality of their lives. Ross has also done other work on my house fixing a bath panel, putting a fridge under the counter in my kitchen and fitting a ladder in the loft. All the work was done quickly and to a high standard for a reasonable price. Def would recommend Ross and his team.

Ross arranged for two members of his team to come to my house to build a trampoline for my sons birthday. They arrived exactly when they said they would and worked hard to build the trampoline for me. They were very helpful and polite. The cost of building the trampoline for me was very reasonable. I wouldn't hesitate to use the company again and recommend them as I understand they are happy to undertake lots of different types of jobs.

Review Comments
It's very frustrating and unprofessional that they cancelled on me just few hours before the appointment twice.

If they thought the work was too small for them to make any money, they could have been honest with me and should not have confirmed my appointment in the first place and rescheduled it when they couldn't make it for the first time.

I had to wait at home for two days and couldn't go to work because they promised that someone from the team would come to check the issue. But unfortunately no one showed up in the end. After I sent two emails (without getting a reply to my first email; never answered my phone call) to ask if they're still coming or needed to find another time, they said they're not going to make it.

Before sending them an enquiry, I read all the positive reviews online but it turned out that they clearly don't treat every customer the same. What a shame!

Official reply from the business:

This is very rare for us as you can see but we cannot please everyone.

Sadly I was on holiday and my team couldn’t make it round so I emailed explaining our delay. I do not feel a negative review was needed as I feel our company conducts itself in an excellent manner in a difficult industry. The notes in review about lack of communication are just not true and at least I explained we could not make it.

We are extremely busy and I tried to help a gentlemen with a tiny issue but some people can ruin things for everyone as now I just will not be completing tiny jobs when we are too busy.

All that being said, we will make further efforts to review our protocols so this does not happen again.

Internal woodwork repainted and utility room cleared, fitted with shelving and flooring then the room repainted. They did a very good job, arrived promptly each day and cleared up afterwards. I'm extremely pleased with my upgraded utility room, and will use this company again in the near future.

Needed some work done in my flat. My experience of Ross and his team was very positive. They were professional, hard working and completed each task to a high standard. I have no hesitation in recommending Ross and his team to others and will definitely use them again if needed.

Top notch work by a reliable firm, who did high quality work. A real pleasure to have them help us with some work in our home. A key question is: would we recommend Radar Handyman to a friend, would we use them again? The answer is easy - yes! In fact we have asked them to come by next month to help deal with a few other jobs we wanted to get done. Fully recommended, very happy with the people, the quality and their neatness.

Ross and his team worked incrediblly hard to install a new bathroom. Very honest and trustworthy. Ross and natalie were excellent at communicating with us and keeping us up to date. Everyone involved were really friendly and helpful and it was a pleasure having them do this work for us. Great attention to detail and even cleaned up the dust during and after the job. Will definitely use again.

I have used Radar Handyman twice, both times for small jobs in the house and will certainly do so again. He is reliable, arrives on time, knows exactly what to do, and is OK about carrying out little jobs that other traders may find too trivial. He is pleasant and courteous, I would recommend him highly.

Excellent work, only marked down slightly because of delays in in getting back in touch to tackle additional jobs...probably because they are very busy!

over all experience of Ross and his team was excellent, professional but friendly, very clear about work being carried out ( and patient with my daft questions). Standard of work carried out very high and very little mess afterwards. The work carried out in my bathroom was tricky and one night the boys stayed till after 7 to get the work completed. Complete stars, thank you very much !

He has recently just completed a bespoke built in wardrobe. From design all the way to full construction/ completion. Very happy.

I also used Ross for emergency repair work to bathroom pipes.

Have no hesitation in recommending Ross. He is totally professional and his workmanship is top class. Nothing is too much trouble and if there's a problem, he'll find a solution. He is respectful, likeable and an excellent communicator - if he's not going to arrive when he's told you, he will let you know - unusual I know! His knowledge and input were invaluable to me and I have nothing but praise for him - he should definitely be on your radar

I was recommended Ross from my son who had used him in the past for various jobs.
I needed a large flat packed sideboard built.
Ross quickly got back to me with his availability and a price.
Lovely young man and he built my sideboard perfectly and left my home in immaculate condition.
I would recommend him to my friends and neighbours.

I have used Ross for many jobs over the years ranging from fitting blinds throughout my house, hanging very heavy mirrors and pictures, building/fitting wardrobes and various other joinery work.
Whenever I need a job doing I always contact Ross who always gets back to me immediately with his availability and a price for the job.
I would most definitely recommend him to anyone as he is very professional, and his attention to detail is exceptional. He is a very trustworthy, kind and pleasant chap too.
