Services Offered

Services Available for home, garden, pool and office: Gardening from weeding to landscaping, stonework (walls, paths, etc) a speciality. Transport and tools all provided by me, no job too small or too big as I have others to call on if required, from 10€ per hour per man plus any required materials at cost or fixed price quote if you prefer. Small construction/demolition jobs, walls, fencing, guttering, tiling etc. from 10€ per hour per man plus any required materials at cost or fixed price quote if you prefer.

Black mould and mildew in the grout that just wont come out? Tiles missing or broken? Thinking you might have to have it completely re-tiled? An 8m X 4m pool of average depth has over 100,000 tiles in it and re-tiling can cost around 5000€ But there is a cheaper solution, I can remove and replace all the grout and the broken/missing tiles for around a quarter of the re-tiling cost and leave it looking good as new.
