I first met James when he was working for a neighbor and as well as the quality of the work, one of the things I noticed was his friendly manner and professionalism. I asked my neighbor about her experience with him and was really impressed with the reference. He had also undertaken building projects for other people I know. He has been with scuseme since its launch and has received a stream of excellent reviews.  James is an exceptional tradesman who is happy to work on small projects as well as the larger building projects. He has worked on numerous house renovation and remodelling projects, domestic and commercial. James is a rare find in Cambridge, a builder who will work with clients on small projects, project manage and undertake extensive renovations. Like so many good builders he is demand so booking early is essential.

What our customers say:

“Your recommended handyman came round to start fixing things. He is good. Very trustworthy. Prompt. Honest. And also nice. He doesn’t overcharge. He is worth his money! I can warmly recommend him.”  Simone Brennis, Cambridge

“Your scuseme handyman has done a marvellous job rebuilding our wall. He was able to source suitable salvaged bricks to match the old one’s ( and faced lots of questions from passers by about where to get them) and the result is excellent. He is also tidy, reliable and I highly recommend him.” Jane Lockie, Cambridge

“Called him after he was recommended by Scuseme, he answered the phone, he came to see the job in just a couple hours, made an appointment, came on time with an sms before arriving, gave a realistic quote for the job to be done and in a couple of days he fixed the problem. Polite and clean worker. Very recommended.”  Marina Montenegro, Cambridge

“We used one of the handymen you recommended for increasing the opening of the chimney breast as well as re pointing the existing bricks. We came across few issues but this did not phase him, you can tell he is an experienced builder. The Job took 5 days on time and on budget. I defiantly will use him for my future project, he is really good builder, thanks.”  Sabrina

“He was very nice, very easy to deal with, very prompt and very reasonable. I’d recommend him to anyone. I also think that Scuseme is a brilliant idea.”  Ms Deyong, Cambridge

“Scuseme recommended this handyman. His response was quick and efficient. The job was to move a kitchen unit, part tile a kitchen. The job was carried out extremely well. The end result is of a very high standard. We then went on to ask him to check the guttering and to fix a tv to the wall. Again both jobs were carried out quickly, and to an admirable standard.  We shall be asking him back to undertake more work. The pricing is reasonable and his work is consistently of a high standard. Everything is clean and tidy when he leaves and he is a very courteous, friendly man to deal with.”  Claire Perry-Holmes and Richard Perry, Cottenham, Cambridgeshire
