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.

Various maintenance jobs around the house

Verified Review

Michael responded to my request on Checkatrade, came to quote, provided a quote, and turned up to do the jobs when promised. Everything was completed satisfactorily, he kept me fully informed, and charged as per his quote. He was a pleasure to deal with and I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again, or to recommend to others.

Filling a hole near the gutter roof and gap in the tiles in the roof that was letting water in

Verified Review

I cannot recommend Michael enough. He was quick to come round and help despite having a busy week, punctual, tidy and very efficient. The work carried out was a success and he helped with another job that I asked if he wouldn't mind helping me with in the garden too. Will definitely call on him again. Thank you Michael.

To secure an LED strip light

Verified Review

I sent Mike a text in the early morning and he was in touch straight away, where I explained the job and gave me a quote. He arrived not long after our chat over the phone, and was on the property for around 20 mins, where he did a fine, clean and tidy job! I would use Mike again! Best regards.

Floor Repair and Door Fitting

Verified Review

As a customer, I know how important reviews are when I'm looking for tradesmen to come and do work for me. I found Michael through Checkatrade and the reviews were excellent. I booked him to come and repair some damage to my dining room floor and to shave and rehang a door. What a great experience. It's so refreshing to find someone reliable, honest and a pleasure to have in the house. There are a few other little bits and pieces I need doing so will definitely be booking again. Really very happy to recommend Handyman About The House.
