Gardening is a much-loved activity but unfortunately, due to our busy lifestyles, we don’t all have the time to beautify our outdoor spaces. The same goes when repair works in and around the home are needed, from replacing grout in the bathroom to installing a fan in the attic. Here are some service providers who can lend you a hand:
Adam Property Maintenance
Judging by the favourable recommendations on social media, Adam and his team are the go-to-guys when it comes high quality house and office repairs or renovations. Fixing water damage to ceilings or correcting previous shoddy workmanship are taken in their stride.
They can handle the painting, electrical installation, replacing roofing or anything else that needs doing.
When they’re finished on the inside, they’ll clean out the yard, cut the grass, trim trees and bushes and more. Gardening services are offered on regular base or a one-time big cleaning.
