I'm Ben Glossop, also known as "Ben about the house".  I offer handyman services in and around Marple and Stockport.  I live in Marple with my wife and two girls.


My background is in construction and I've always loved fixing things and solving practical problems. After undertaking numerous jobs in my own house (laying flooring, installing light fittings, re-plumbing a washing machine in a new room, fitting a "sun tube" in the roof, installing a wood burning stove...) I decided to set up a business to use my skills to help other people.


If you've got a job that needs doing (big or small) and are struggling to find the right person, give me a call and I'll do my best to help.  I've set out my range of services on this site, but even if something isn't listed I'm always willing to discuss how I can be of assistance.  If I can help, I will, and once we've discussed what you need I'll give you a fixed price for each job.  I can't undertake any work that requires a Gas Safe registered plumber or an NICEIC electrician, and will let you know if the job requires one.
