About Me - DIY Dave

I would like to introduce myself as a self employed Handyman providing a General Maintenance Service within the Newbury, Thatcham, Hungerford and surrounding village's area of West Berkshire and edging into Hampshire.


My name is David Warwick, I live in Wash Common, Newbury, Berkshire and what now seems to be my natural ability for efficient repair solutions; my experience has been gained over the past 40 or so years with friends, relations and work colleague's requiring odd jobs done with laminate flooring, kitchens fitted, tiling of bathrooms & kitchens, toilet repairs, patio laying, decorating, fences broken and my own house extension/past renovations to name but a few...


Professionally, in my earlier years I started in the building trade, including brickwork, joinery and a little later in years with marble & granite fitting. In the local windscreen & car alarm trade for 21 years and time spent at 'Le Mans' with the ProDrive Team. Then 6 years as a Supervisor in a vehicle bodyshop at Greenham Common but alas made redundant! Then a couple of years as a self-employed 'Plumbers Mate' and also a courier where I got to know London extremely well! Following then into office removals, relocation & storage for several years where I was made redundant again! It happens to us all nowadays and as they say 'when one door closes another opens', so you have to keep your chin up, stay positive and quickly adapt to a new challenge around the corner. It took until 2005 for my wife and friends to assure and give me the confidence that I had the experience and ability to help others; especially where some may struggle, even with the smallest of task.


Generally, I can carry out most small maintenance tasks - except major electrical, roofing & heating i.e. re-wiring, boiler replacement, system renewals, etc., where I know my limits & current regulations. Please feel assured though, I will advise at any stage if a specific Trades Professional would be recommended if I thought the task was at all beyond my ability and expertise, of which I could supervise or maybe assist if required or preferred.


My wife, Jill, often accompanies me on specific jobs where an extra pair of hands is much appreciated. She is also very practical herself and particular on a finished product with a keen eye for detail, especially when we are painting and makes sure we clean around after finishing the job. She also keeps me in check on the computer & paperwork side!


Should you have a job or task that you are not sure who to contact please give me a call and I will advise, even if it is to point you in the right direction, as being a local chap all my life I know a lot of reputable specific tradespeople for consideration or I can pop in and have a quick look when I am in your area and advise accordingly, with no obligation of course!.


I carry out regular maintenance work for local prestigious & reputable business's around Newbury and contacts can be supplied for reference purposes. I also have Public Liability Insurance and a current CRB check for Sole Traders.


Thank you for visiting my website and should you require any general maintenance work in the near future I hope that you would consider contacting me.
