About Us

Your Repair Professional

Holdfast Handyman operate from their base in South Gloucestershire all over the Bristol Area. We offer a quality service at an affordable price and will take on any tasks, no matter how small they may be - we welcome even the odd jobs!


The company is run by myself, Richard Smith. I served 12 years in the British Army (Royal Engineers) getting involved with construction tasks over the world. I left as a qualified Architectural Technician and have spent the last 20 years working in construction, so I know about buildings..

However as a child I always watched my dad carry out DIY tasks round the house and as I got older helped out and learnt skills from him. Its these skills and ones I picked up in my service and more recently in the construction industry that I really enjoyed, so Im going back to my roots and do what I enjoy the most - working with my hands; building, repairing, maintaining in the home and garden, all with the satisfaction that comes with a job well done and Holdfast Handyman was born


We all lead busy lifestyles, juggling work with precious free time, not wanting to waste hours doing those little jobs, repairs and maintenance around the home and garden; or we are simply unable to.
