About High Peak Handyman

Hello, my name is Richard Sentance – the High Peak Handyman, a domestic and gardening services business newly established in 2016.

Whether it’s a lightbulb on the stairs you’re struggling to change, your latest IKEA purchase you need help assembling, or a 2 mile perimeter fence that needs painting, I’m your man. I am here to assist you with a variety of maintenance and DIY tasks, see the Services section for a comprehensive list. If a task is not listed please do not hesitate to ask. If anything is beyond me or I do not possess the correct qualifications I will always tell you upfront and advise where I can.

Many years ago I was working as an usher at a cinema and began helping out with the maintenance of the building, until I realised I was doing more maintenance than the cinema maintenance guy! I eventually took over and also started training as an electrician part time. I then progressed into management as I found it tough to find experience in the electrical industry as a mature student and due to the decline in recruitment during the recession. While continuing to work full time I also started renovating houses on the side and realised that my passion was in maintenance – I thrive on the fact I get the opportunity to do completely different tasks every day for different people and get job satisfaction in seeing a job well done. Based on my experience so far I decided to set up High Peak Handyman to assist people in my local area.

I have strong principles when it comes to work, I believe that being reliable and trustworthy is vital to be able to fit seamlessly into people’s hectic lifestyles. I have some availability in the evening and at weekends to fit in with your schedule – please get in touch!

I have £2 million liability insurance, in the very unlikely event that something should go wrong. I am insured to work on both domestic and light commercial buildings.

As this is a newly established business I hope you find my pricing and your quote very realistic and competitively priced to reflect this. Please feel free to contact me here for more details.
