Summary:

Mark came to renovate and refurbish back porch and also to affix security lights and security cameras. The lights were solely Mark's idea as I have to use my side gate for access and are a god-send; brilliant thought on his part!

Comments:

Mark carried out the work to his usual exceptionally high standards with courtesy, kindness and expertise. Mark "thinks ahead" to come up with good ideas especially geared towards helping make life easier - and safer - for elderly, infirm people like myself. 

I bless the day I found Mark and recommend him without hesitation, and with every confidence.

Review of recommended handyman in Cambridge

Review Date:

Summary:

Refurbishment of porch and other jobs.

Comments:

Mark Flello has been an absolute godsend. As a disabled widow I despaired of ever getting a major (and small jobs) being carried out, having been kept hanging on for long while waiting for someone else who said they'd do them.

Mark was punctual, courteous, kind and extremely helpful. He is also very honest and fair with what he charges. The work he has carried out to date is first class - and attention to detail is excellent too. I simply cannot fault any aspect of what he has done and look forward to when he can spare me more time in future. Understandably, being such a good Handyman he is  much in demand. 

I shall definitely use Mark again whenever I need more work doing as I know I can rely on him completely. I have no hesitation in recommending Mark very highly.

Review of recommended handyman in March

Review Date:
8th October 2019

Summary:

Mark has carried out a wide variety of jobs for us over the years that we have known him.

Comments:

As an elderly lady with a disabled husband, I really don't know what we would do without Mark. Whenever we need any jobs to be carried out, I just call him and he will give me a day and time to come and he is always there - always dependable, reliable and so helpful. I cannot praise him enough.

He is a fantastic jack of all trades and can turn his hand to anything. He has carried out gardening work, painted our kitchen (did a really lovely job) and came to my aid when our curtain pole / cord broke. The curtains are heavy velvet and he went out, got a new pole and fixed it all. 

He is exceptionally trustworthy and we would not worry one little bit when we have to leave him alone in the house. Even if he is gardening and we go out, we will always leave him a key.

He is also exceptionally clean and tidy, for example, when he painted the kitchen he covered everything and when he was finished, he wiped everything down and hoovered. The same for when he was drilling in the lounge - I never have to clear up afterwards as he leaves everything spotless.

I always recommend him to everyone and I know that the door on my neighbours old wardrobe broke and he went and bought some new catches and fixed it for her. I know that he is also now the 'go to handyman' for some other neighbours.

There is nothing not to like about Mark. He would do anything for anyone and is caring, helpful, goes over and above and is an asset to anyone.

I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Review of recommended handyman and gardener in Great Stukeley, Huntingdon

Review Date:
30th September 2019

Summary:

My house is 100 years old and therefore requires all types of on-going maintenance, which Mark carries out and has done so for many years now.

Comments:

I do not know what I would do without Mark; he really is truly wonderful. He has been tasked with many adventurous jobs over the years and has always been innovative and conscientious with completing these to my full satisfaction. For example, he recently completed the most amazing fireplace covers for three original fireplaces, ensuring that they are all draught-proof. He is certainly a craftman and draws plans out for me beforehand and I trust his incredible judgement 100%.

What always impresses me is how he uses his time so efficiently - he gets the job done and takes immense pride in what he does. 

He is wonderfully honest and thoughtful - in fact he has a key and the whole run of the house. I trust him implicitly.

I have a large garage which is great for Mark to use his workmate in - unlike other traders, Mark always ensures that this is bolted afterwards. Always demonstrating care, respect and thoughtfulness.

He also always goes to the merchants to purchase any materials etc., that is required for the job and is incredibly resourceful. For example, I have the original fuse-board with the big square fuses and he managed to find a little shop, tucked behind Wicks, that sold these.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mark to anyone; he is a remarkable man.

Review of recommended painter & decorator and handyman in Ely

Review Date:
24th September 2019

Summary:

Painting and decorating and lots of odd jobs.

Comments:

I have used Mark for many years and, having him back time and time again, is testament to the fact that he is wonderful.

As an 81-year-old lady, I have had plenty of experience of traders over the years who I would not have back so I feel very lucky to have found Mark. He is the most helpful man and he always goes over and above. He is clever and adaptable and can turn his hand to almost anything. He is quite an exceptional person.

He has never let me down and he is an absolute pleasure to have in my home.

I would recommend him 100% and always have. He has carried out work for friends and neighbours and they have all equally been as impressed with him as I have.

Highly recommendable.
