Happy Tradesmen & Handymen

SMILE - Consider it done!


"Hi Dietmar & Happy Tradesmen Team, our compliments on a job very well done. The Trustees and I could not find fault with the repairs/maintenance carried out to the exterior of the 38x wooden garage doors. Many residents have also provided complimentary feedback. Will recommend you/team and hope we can do more projects together." 

A.R. Trustee Valley Lodge Townhouse Estate.

"I can’t heap enough praise on Dietmar, Brodric (Project Manager) and the Happy Handyman Team for their bathroom renovation work at my apartment. The brief was quite bespoke, and with most other contractors I would have had reservations about ability to satisfactorily execute every single required detail, but upon my very first consultation with Dietmar to obtain a quote, I was immediately reassured that the project would be in safe hands on the basis of the highly collaborative quality of our interaction and his keen understanding of the broad vision for the space. Ultimately, my experience of Dietmar and his team was that they were polite, professional, pragmatic and precise, and as a result, an absolute pleasure to work with, far exceeding my lofty expectations. I would not hesitate to call on the Happy Handyman team again, and cannot recommend them highly enough."

Fantastic team. Completely trustworthy, reliable and hard working. Always arrive when they say they will and really respect your home by covering furniture and cleaning up afterwards. Highly recommend.”

"Firstly I want to thank you and your team for the work you did and the professionalism in the way you went about your work. You truly lived up to the Happy Handyman brand and no matter what curve balls were thrown your way, you were constantly happy." 

R. Haydock - Adaptive Consulting

It truly was a pleasure..." 

“Dietmar (The Happy Handyman Team) did do work at my house, where he replaced ceiling boards, hung up new light fittings, some wiring and painting. I was very happy with his work and would definitely recommend him. He also did extensive work for my father and he was also very happy.”

D. Neimann, Sunninghill.


"Cliff, thank you so much for the fast and efficient work you did. It's been a pleasure doing business with you! Everything is looking fantastic, and just in time to impress the estate agents..." Riaan, Northriding.

"The Happy Handyman & his Team provides a great service and is scrupulously honest.  I would recommend him and his team any day.” 

Dr F. Conradie, Emmarentia.

"Thanks so much Happy Handyman. A job (strange one!) excellently and seamlessly executed !!!"   L. Leibowitz, Houghton


“I have found The Happy Handyman to be trustworthy and honest; he is diligent in attending to the tasks at hand and his approach to a project being of high standards. I have had bad experiences with builders and handymen in the past and insisted that Dietmar be on-site for the duration of the projects that he was employed to do and, much to my delight, he was there every step of the way to manage the process. In no manner will I have any doubts in requesting his assistance in the future, should I have further handyman work to be done.”

A. Khoury, Atholl Gardens, Sandton.


“His (The Happy Handyman) work is excellent. He is incredibly thorough in assessing what's needed and once on the job has a fast working team who knows what they are doing and who works incredibly thoroughly and very neatly. 

I felt confident throughout their work in progress and he also went an extra mile by fixing up a door that he need not have done. 

I live in a 1930s house so over time have had lots of work done on various bits of the house, and can truly rate Dietmar and his team among the best.”

C. Dicks, Kensington.


“We have used Dietmar (The Happy Handyman) to do a fair amount of work in the past few months and I can highly recommend his skills. 

He is a perfectionist and takes great care doing his jobs, and is courteous and professional in his attitude. He has fixed our roof and ceilings, done work on doors, locks and windows and recently built some support pillars for our new patio.

I can highly recommend him to you!”           

R. Cox, Randparkridge. 


"I can recommend the Happy Tradesmen and his team from my own experience.”
B. Fourie, Greenside.


“I am a rather sad old drab little house needing some TLC, but it is difficult to find, someone willing to do small odd jobs because everybody wants to get rich quick and they don’t care about quality.

Well - Happy Handyman (& Team) has fixed up my kitchen & laundry sinks that were falling off the walls and now they look as good as new. But wait - HHM has resolved plumbing problems that I’ve had for years. Now I can happily have a hot bath. HHM sorted out rotten wooden windows & other window problems including treating them. Painted the main bedroom which is so fresh and sparkling. What more can I say?

Many thanks Happy Handyman for your kindness and caring - there are not too many of you around - and now this little drab old house is beginning to smile again and perhaps we might just make our 100th birthday in 2022.” [Note: Condensed]
