Builders / house repairs / odd jobs – recommendations required

Can anyone recommend a good (reliable, reasonably priced, friendly) builder / repair man for general house repairs / odd jobs in Hackney?  We have been using the services of a company our landlady has used in the past but they are cowboys – rude, never call back, never provide updates, slow, expensive and their work is poor – completely fed up with them! Thanks!


  1. A friend of mine does handyman stuff and carpentry, contact details here

  2. My friend Dan is a good bloke who is friendly and lives in Stoke Newington. He’s a carpenter/builder who also can do a bit of plumbing and electrical work as well. He’s done work for The Jolly Butchers and local beer writer Pete Brown, as well as for friends of mine. His number is 07748 281544. You can say Doreen recommended him on yeah! Hackney.
