"I observed Chris paint a wooden home of a neighbouring property.He spent many hours scraping paint in preparation to paint. I was impressed by his perseverance and dedication to what was a difficult job and the final result.As a result I approached Chris sometime later to paint a commercial property we own. With scaffolding being required Chris not only made an excellent job of
the painting, but also cleaned the guttering. The invoice accurately detailed the time on the job, right down to his breaks and down time because of weather.

If I require further painting work I would have no hesitation in using the services of Chris."

"Chris Waters Handyman services were recommended to me by my sister after he completed a very professional plastering job for her.  Upon meeting Chris I found him to be very thorough in his explanation of what my job entailed, how he would prepare for the entire internal paint job of my home, what he required before commencing work, when he would start and approx how long the job was going to take.
 Chris is a real professional, he provided me with a fair estimate before starting.  He was left at my property to enter and lock up everyday, nearly always unattended due to my work commitments. I found him to be extremely trustworthy and respectful of my  property.  It was always rewarding to arrive home and see just how much ground Chris had covered in a day, he's a very steady worker  and has a wealth of knowledge in many areas.

Thanks Chris, it was a pleasure to do business with you, you completed my job to an extremely high standard and I would not hesitate in hiring you again."

              ‘I had a house to sell in Nelson, a house that was sound but tired and in need of a makeover and I was stuck overseas locked out by covid. This stressed me out as I like renovating and being hands on and believed nobody would oversee the project as well as I would but wasn't going to sell the house looking drab either. What I needed was somebody who was multi-skilled and capable of doing many hours of hard work and meeting deadlines.Somebody who was capable of seeing the big picture and seeing a project to completion. I found Chris online at an Odd Job man web site, after a two minute chat I knew I had struck gold, a suburb finish is 95% preparation and 5% top coat and that is Chris. When Chris said he would come on board I was happy, my instruction was simple, I wanted the house turned around and looking immaculate for sale.This was a lot of work and many visits that required planning and skill. Chris always had solutions, was able to work around tradies and make judgment calls on many details and everyone he made was spot on. Chris's management of the project exceeded my expectations, the agent selling the house was impressed, she had seen the before and afterward and grabbed his number. I describe Chris as, capable, understated, hard working and honest.’
