It’s also worth noting that we repair gates, walls and garden containing walls.There are many reasons for replacing fences.

If you are looking to put your property on the market, any agent worth their salt will tell you that it is not worth spending a fortune putting in new kitchens and bathrooms or generally redesigning the place. The buyers will have their own ideas about that. However, it is worth spending a more modest amount on making what you have look its best. Equally, if you are trying to attract tenants, it will help if your property doesn’t look too “lived-in”.This doesn’t have to break the bank, either. Ensuring your home looks appealing to potential buyers or tenants is simple – you just have to give the little details some love and attention. This may involve some painting and decorating, fixing broken skirting or tiles, making sure all your lights are working properly and perhaps jet washing a dirty patio or steps. NE-Worx handyman services can fulfill all those small jobs that will help give your property that “wow” factor when the agent comes to value it and the viewings begin.

Wall Mounted TV
Have you received a new flat screen TV two weeks ago and it is still standing in the same place as it was because you haven’t gone around to mounting it to the wall? Perhaps you simply don’t have enough time in your hands to finish the job – don’t worry, NE-Worx is here to give you a helping hand and fix it firmly to the wall. I can install your new TV to the wall, so you can finally enjoy the wonders of full HD. Request a free quote by filling our online form or give me a call on 07871 939507Have you thought about the placement? Placement is key as you’ll have to consider the viewing angle, accessibility to electric outlets, if the wall will be strong enough to hold the television up and the overall décor of the room. Additionally, will you want to have your gaming console next to the television? What about a soundbar or speakers for a complete surround sound experience? You’ll have to consider these devices and perhaps put up a shelf near the television to hold them.We would recommend hiding the electrical cables, instead of leaving them out in the open, ready to become more tangled than headphone wires. You have two main options, either choose to bury them in the wall surface or run the wires along the surface of the wall.Surface-mounted wires will be easier to replace whenever you want to upgrade your electronics again, however, they won’t look as good as chased-in wires. If you mind having visible wires, the other option is painting the wires, so they blend in with the rest of the wall. Buried cables even though it is a more difficult job to do – it will be worth the effort as it will give the room a more modern and cleaner look.
Bespoke TV walls
Tiling ~ Grouting
Whether you are looking to completely renovate a specific room or to simply install new tiles, I will be able to give you a helping hand. Perhaps you want to remove old tile grout and change the colour of the tile grout or maybe you require a professional to drill through tiles without cracking them to install new mirror lights?Or perhaps you’re redesigning your kitchen and are looking for some extra hands to install backsplash tiling. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are ideal for walls as they do not absorb stains and are non-porous, however, there are so many tiles to choose from that you will have to spend a lot of time thinking which tiles are ideal for your walls.Bathrooms are the only room in a home that should definitely have tile flooring, as the majority of tiles are water-resistant. Wooden flooring or carpets will not be able to handle the moisture in the room, making tiles the perfect option for a high-humidity environment. I can install tile flooring in your bathroom, kitchen and even outdoors, using anti-skid tiles to avoid any slipping incidents. Give me a call today on 07871 939507 or request a free quote by filling our online contact form.
