ABOUT  I If anyone can the handyman can

I'm Darren,

I'm working as a self employed handyman covering Balham and close surrounding areas.

I work entirely on foot which is why I focus my work on the local community.

Having lived and worked locally in Balham most of my life.

I’ve been doing various handy man jobs for friends and family for over 35 years now.

My jobs have ranged from tiling bathrooms and kitchens, refinishing floors, fixing washing machines, plumbing and a wide array of various maintenance work for both interior and exterior. 

'A good handy man is hard to find and keep'

 I’ve been told many times.

   I’m reliable, punctual, tidy and efficient. 

My work will always be of a high standard.

No job is too small,

from hanging pictures to  tiling or refitting your entire kitchen. 

You will find my prices reasonable.

I’m focused on achieving 100% customer satisfaction and 5-star reviews

‘Darren has saved me from buying a new washing machine last Spring, a new picnic table, and a new television with his expertise and attention to detail. He also did a beautiful job tiling my bathroom.’ 


- Julia A,  SW12

Darren hung doors on my shed and gave the shed a coat of oil. Friendly and efficient. Knows what he's doing...

Thumbs up.

'Darren fitted  two internal doors, handles, mortice locks, he  also fixed a difficult door frame.

 Very thorough with attention to detail, all within a very reasonable timescale.'

Highly recommended.

-Mervin S, SW8

"We had a leaky kitchen sink and Darren spotted straight away what the problem was and fixed it with minimum fuss and maximum efficiency. He was a pleasure to deal with and I recommend him highly.


- Amber B,  SW12

I booked Darren out for just over half day as I had a mountain of smaller (and larger) jobs that needed doing. He was punctual, very efficient and absolutley lovely. Dismantled a heavy, awkward old wardrobe and got rid of it for me, fixed my leaky toilet, built new furniture and fixed several hazardous electrical sockets whilst he was here. Have already booked him again to build some purpose built storage solutions in my home early next month! Five star.
