    Evening guys. I have a problem with my guttering. It leaks from a join on one of the corners. Was wondering if I could fix this myself?

    • Good evening. Sounds like the rubber seal has perished. We recommend gutter seal sold at most diy stores applied via a caulk gun. Unclip the corner & fill the join so that when you clip back in you have a watertight seal. Should also say that gutter clips become very brittle overtime & sometimes snap so also consider a brand new corner. Also be sure from a safety point of view that you can get to it safely! If in doubt call us to sort it for you.

    I have been quoted £45 per square metre for my pointing. Does this seem about right?

  4. Hey, Got a problem with penetrating damp coming through in a ground floor corner bedroom which never gets the sunshine. Had a look at all the guttering etc and nothing seems to be out of place, reckon it must be coming straight through the wall. Could you give a rough quote to coat the wall with silicon sealant? I estimate it is a total of 30 m/square.

  5. Good evening percy. We would need to survey the area concerned to confirm that it it definately penetrating damp. All quotes are free & no obligation.If you would like to send me your contact details to then we can have a chat & discuss an appropriate time to take a look

    Hi, we have a 18th century town house built mainly from brick. The face of many of these have broken away. Also the pointing would need replacing. What would be the best thing to do. Not sure how you would repair the bricks.

    hi i had a problem with sand in my bath waste pipe (dont ask lol) i phoned do-it-all-dave and in stead of coming out and charging me he talked me through my problem down the phone, the instructions were simple and staright forward so i could understand it ( no fancy plumbers talk lol ) after following the instructions i was able to sort the problem out myself. What im really trying to say is that in the current economy everyone is looking for your monney ( i was quoted £90-£145 before i phoned dave) but these guys are genuine quality guys. ive liked the page on facebook and i will highly recomend to enyone who needs a handyman. again thank you dave 🙂

  8. Many thanks Aaron! We don’t do overpriced & we don’t part you from you’re hard earnt money when it’s not necessary.
