Company info

The original company was founded in 1987 as Swift Roofing Co, then about 10 years later we started building extensions/loft conversions and general building works and became Swift Roofing and Building Co.  

We have now diversified into all aspects of  handyman services which includes all jobs in and around your home and garden and have now become HANDYMAN ABOUT THE HOUSE.  

We can do:

  • small alterations / kitchen lounge  knock throughs.
  • All odd jobs, put up curtain rails and shelves, assemble flat pack furniture.
  • picture / mirror hanging.
  • no job too  small.
  • Mowing the lawn/tidying up the garden/fencing repairs/power washing patio/ decking.
  • Just ask, if we can't help you then we know someone who can.

All work is guaranteed and carried out by me if other tradesmen are needed then they are all professional people who I have used and trusted for many years.

I believe in delivering a high standard of workmanship, courteous manners and punctuality as if I am carrying out work in my own family home.

TV installation

Verified Review

Michael did a great job of installing a wall bracket for our new tv. We didn't have the right screw fixtures and Michael was great at problem-solving through this. He is very professional and easy to deal with and I highly recommend him.

Replace Shed Roof Felt and Replace Shed Floor and Built A Base

Verified Review

Michael is professional, friendly and experienced, he definitely knows what he’s doing. We had a cowboy builder who initially fitted our shed, within 2 months the roof started leaking. I was extremely lucky to find Michael on CheckATrade. In December last year he replaced the felt on the roof and put wooden fascia all around, the roof looks amazing, no more leaks. We asked Michael to come back to raise the shed floor, install bearers underneath and take the defective floor out and replace it. The shed is now stronger and looks fantastic, Michael is brilliant, we would definitely recommend him.

I can't recommend Michael enough for his excellent standard of work. Everything from re-felting the shed roof and fitting a new oven extractor to hanging pictures and fitting bolts. Michael is knowledgeable, reliable and always very tidy.
