Review of recommended property maintenance in Chatteris

Review Date:
23rd December 2023

Summary:

Redecoration and maintenance improvements of rental property.

Comments:

I had a rented house empty which needed to be fully decorated before the new tenants were due to arrive in January. I gave Mark the key to the house so that he could come and go at his leisure, starting in November through to December, to carry out the works.

Mark and his son decorated the whole of the house, all the rooms ceilings, walls, made repairs, painted the banisters, steam cleaned all the carpets. Repaired the latches on all the bedroom doors, cleaned old silicone out and renewed the silicon in the bathroom. Repaired cupboards in the kitchen and finally worked on the garden exterior, removing weeds front and back and cut the lawn. They also repaired the damaged section of the decking and pressure washed it, and then supplied and applied decking treatment.

In addition, they also supplied and fitted a wireless doorbell

I allowed Mark to purchase all the materials, and I paid up front to help pay for materials, each week he completed the work I would pay his bill IMMEDIATELY. It’s important that these handy men that work for their living are paid directly and swiftly as it's their income and salary that they need to live on. One-man companies do not have the reserves to wait to be paid weeks or months.

I highly fully recommend Mark for any task, especially painting and decorating. Mark and his qualified son did a great job, first class.

Summary:

Lounge walls prepared and painted. Wallpaper to one wall. Ceiling prepared and painted. Coving cracks filled in and painted. Wooden windowsill sanded down and stained.

Cannot fault Mark's excellent work and attention to detail. Takes his time and this is reflected in the high standard of workmanship. On finishing the work all furniture was put back  and there was no mess to clear up.  Fair price for the work done. Will be recommending to family and friends. Very happy customer.

Review of recommended handyman in Cambridge

Review Date:
5th December 2019

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.
