Solving problems one by one

Pretoria Handy man, Rent a Gent is a family owned business, specialising in carpentry, plumbing and general maintenance

No Job too small

I fix, maintain & restore most things around the house. I do woodwork, plumbing, painting and general building maintenance in the northern suburbs of Pretoria. I do most of the work myself and only use labour when absolutely essential. I have fitted and built kitchens on my own many times.

Rent a gent is a small family owned Handyman business that does general maintenance at homes and industrial properties.

Like Bob the builder, yes the Rent a gent can! The Pretoria Handyman does most of the work himself from the preparation to the hand off, No Job is too small. There are a few things I don't do. Let's get them out of the way. Steelwork and welding, Building and Plastering and glazing. I also don't do large floor tiling projects.


At present the Pretoria Carpenter will do anything related to wood that includes maintenance, repairs and restoration.

Melamine Kitchens and Built in Cupboards

Have your tops started swelling around the sink, Pretoria Cabinetmaker, Rent a Gent fits replacement work tops and seals them properly to prevent a recurrences of the problem. The Pretoria Cabinet maker will also reface your kitchen with new doors and tops, saving any units that are still good for reuse. You can save huge amounts, by refacing and not replacing.

If you want to add a few units, Rent a gent is also the handyman business for that.

Rent a gent fit built in cupboards, make specialised units and furniture to fit. Anything from a desk for your kid's room to a shelf in the garage.

Furniture Repairs and Restoration

Are your dining table chairs rickety, Is your solid wood or antique dining table looking a little worse for the wear? I can make them great again. From restoration and repair to new. Rent a gent's handyman is actually a cabinet maker and can tell the difference between a dovetail, a mortice and tenon and a dowelled joint.

Wooden Windows and Doors

The Pretoria Handyman can also do wooden window and door restoration and repairs.


Do you need to move a washing machine, add a point for a dish washer, fit a washing machine, fix leaky taps, a running toilet or a blocked drain. Geyser blown up? No job too small or insignificant.

General Maintenance

From hanging a few paintings, to painting a mural. Crack filling, damp sealing, water proofing, a broken towel rail, a kitchen cabinet falling off the wall and a broken hinge on a built in cupboard. Tenants just moved out and left a mess. let me have a look.
