Dave sorted out a new panel to fit to the side of the bath after the plumber had to fix various leaks. He also put more sealant around the shower panel. He was friendly, prompt, reliable, quick to respond to my message on the Nextdoor App, came to do the quote when he said he would, and turned up on the day on time and took the amount of time he said that it would take, complete with a ready cut and painted panel. The quote was very reasonable and he invoiced promptly. I'd definitely use him again and I'd recommend him to my friends and family.

Dave did a great job insulating and boarding my loft and I'm very pleased with the work that he did. He worked 3 full days and tidied up each day before returning the following day. He was punctual, polite and friendly. His pricing is very reasonable. I have used him before for a couple of smaller jobs and will definitely use him again. I would definitely recommend. Thanks again Dave

Brilliant service and work
Dave is a fantastic person to have in your home. Apart from being competent and good at his trade; he quotes accurately, does exactly as discussed and is genuinely lovely to have around yourhome.

Ace work done by Dave
I think outstanding is an understatement here. David had done a brilliant job to repair some bathroom tiles for me. He had been responsive to my enquiries in the first place and quite quickly arranged for visits to fix the issue. he also lent his streamer to me free of charge to do some gardening whilst on site doing the job. I highly recommend his services!

Dave has done a great job to replace kitchen sink and taps. I am delighted with the quality and speed Dave did. It is great appreciated that he quickly scheduled the job on Sunday morning since there is no slot he can fit in the job on a weekday. He is friendly, polite and response to messages. He sticks to his schedule and tides up after the jobs. And above all, he charges a fair price. He is highly recommended.

Dave is the kind of handy man you need! He was kind courteous and got the job done in good time. He is very reasonably priced for his work, he even came out the same night to help.

I found Dave on this site. Thought I would give him a chance. What a hard working man! Didn’t stop all day. Did a fantastic job of mending my bannisters and replacing a downstairs toilet floor which included taking out the toilet and sink. Hoping he will come back to paint a couple of rooms.

We used Dave for an aerial wiring job. He brought it down from the loft, through the wall, pinned it really neatly down the side of the house and back through the living room wall. He did a beautiful job of burying it beneath the carpet. he was super neat and tidy and clearly took pride in doing a top class job. I would highly recommend getting a quote from DIY Dave as he is also very affordable.
16th June 2021
Daves your man!
We cannot rate Dave and his work highly enough. Dave did several tasks in our kitchen, including the hanging of some awkward cupboards (low ceilings), removal of kitchen wall tiles, plastering and re-tiling, plumbing and various other tasks. He works hard and meticulously and nothing seems to phase him, and he is extremely reliable and sincere. We have started a list of jobs around the house that we would like to get him to sort out for us, and his abilities go way beyond the usual handyman tasks of painting, assembling and fixing things.
