Welcome to my Checkatrade home page. 

With seven years’ experience in Home Improvements I have learned to put my hand to almost anything.

From simply painting a door to a complete home makeover I will always do as good a job as I can regardless of time. 

I am punctual, reliable, efficient and tidy.

I'll leave your home not just having done a good job but with you feeling satisfied and pleased you picked me.


Keeping It Neat is a company I set up in the French Alps a few years ago.

I noticed a gap in the market for someone to do all the jobs the big chalet builders didn't want to do.

Jobs like; 

Kitchen fitting, Tiling, Painting, putting up curtain rails, light fittings, flat pack furniture assembly etc. All the jobs to help new owners settle into life in the Alps.    

I was immediately inundated with work and then transferred the business to Brighton and Hove a few years later.

Over the last five years I have completed all manner of jobs ranging from simply putting up a large mirror into an old stone wall to a full home redesign and renovation.

Specialties include; kitchen design, collection and installation; painting - interior and exterior but I can put my hand to almost anything. I shan't mess around with major electrics but am more than happy to change a socket, light switch etc. Plumbing I am happy to do but I shan't redesign major pipework. Leave that to the professionals.  

I am punctual, honest, reliable and I endeavour to do a good job for a good price.

The difference between here and the Alps is the competition. I was the only handyman in the valley over there now I have stiff competition from numerous handymen here in Brighton and Hove. All it does it spur me on to do as good a job as I am able and continue to build up a client base and repeat business based on my skills and quality of workmanship.
