Borrow a bloke


Perimeter Fence

Fencing is something we have done from the very start, this one we had to first remove 70 feet of existing fence and bushes, set all new posts, and complete a made to measure hand made on site fence.

Bathroom Replacement

This bathroom belongs to an older gentleman, whose use of the bath had become a just too much for him, we re-designed and fitted him an all-new semi wet room. This made life so much easer and allowed him to stay within his home.

Outdoor Paint

Here are some typical out door paint jobs, any questions put your hand up!

Raised Gym Handrail

This staircase had a problem, the handrail was too low for health and safety regulations, so we found and purchased solid brass handrail and top mounted the fixings so as not to damage the existing handrail, this meant the building did not have to close and could continue serving the community.

Sentimental Gate Restoration

This ladies dad had built this gate, it was one of the last things he ever did, and she wanted it restoring, even though it would have cost less to have a new one made exactly the same, so thatís what we did, she was very happy with the result, and still is to this day.

Bay Roof Repair

This bay window roof was in a bad way, thing was the actual boards were in grate shape, and the elderly lady whom owned the property, could not afford to have the top surface removed and disposed of so, we treated the whole area with a fibreglass resin product designed for just this application. Saving the lady a fortune.


Brickwork is never easy especially when a car busts through it and uses your wall as a brake! Well just like that we worked with the owner and re used the existing bricks as the driver was uninsured and the old couple did not have the resources to pay for all new bricks as well.


People ask, "do you fit curtains?" I think the answer is a resounding "we sure do!". We have a well practised specialised white glove installation service, you'll love it, we even bring our own vacuum!

Barrel of Fun

It's a water feature! We have built many things for our clients; this is one of the most unusual things we have been asked to come up with, still we had a lot of fun doing it.

New Decking

This garden had a section of 35sq meters of unusable space due to an extreme slope, the solution was to deck the area, nice job.

Bath Sealing

The silicone on this bath had rotted and the grout had become moldy, we re grouted the tiles and re applied the silicone.

Corner Fence

This fence was beyond repair, we completely removed the old fence sections and re constructed all the uprights and cross members, finished off with feather edge made to measure as the gaps were all different.

Damaged Gate

This customer's gate had taken a bettering after a particularly heavy storm, we re-erected the entire structure and re-hung the gates.

New Boundary Fence

This lady wanted to extend the boundary fence for extra privacy so we designed a solution that utilized the existing wall, we went on to remove an unsafe wall and follow the featheredge fence style throughout.

Garage Conversion

The person who owned this garage had a very dilapidated building on their hands, the brief was to make it water tight and able to store household furniture and possessions, we repaired the roof and replaced rotten timber sections, washed down the brickwork, built a staging area painted the walls and floor. Repaired the doors.

Leaking Flat Roof

This flat roof section was very old and starting to split in places, we applied a fiberglass resin to the entire roof. Eliminating the need to re-roof the structure.

Bespoke Cupboard

This was an interesting re build, the original cupboard was over 100 years old and the couple wanted it replacing with new with their own touches, i.e. writing desk and wine rack, display section etc.

Just a leaking tap!

After arriving at this property it was clear from the start it was a far bigger issue than first reported by the client, we were called to look into a leaky stopcock, after inspection, a full set of pictures were taken to support our client and within a matter of days the work had started. Within 10 days a new floor and a complete new kitchen had been installed.

Fire Damaged House

We were called to look at a 92 year-old lady's kitchen after a chip pan fire; the images show the story

Church Roof

Extensive flooding and faulty drainage caused this Blackpool Church major problems.

After being called to a church with a roof problem and following inspection of the property, we found that not only had it been vandalised, but the flat roof had collapsed and needed rebuilding.

Hole In Ceiling

We were called in to patch what the plumber had left behind following a major central heating leak where he had smashed holes in the ceiling to quickly find the fault.

Garden Decking

Not just useful for jobs around the home, BAB will also venture outdoors!

The owner of this garden wanted their virtual waste ground at the end of their garden converting into a more idillyic area; so we created a decked bog-garden.

A small seletion of Borrow a bloke Maintenance Ltd's recent work:

Fire escape

For Borrow a Bloke's landlords, we undertake everything from changing light bulbs to major construction projects; including installing new fire excapes!

Gable End Repair

This small section of gable end wall was allowing water to ingress into the property causing internal damp, we replaced the damaged bricks, then we patch rendered the exterior.

Shop Window Display

The shop window for this outlet had a particular problem with the positioning of the new window displays, they called upon us to find a safe and secure solution to the positioning and fixing.

Replaced Bricks

This house was suffering badly with deteriorated Accrington brick, we removed the old and replaced with new, and matched the pointing.

Replaced Gates

This landlord was not based in Blackpool, but had a report that the rear gates to his property were damaged and people were using the area as a dumping ground. As you can see we cleared all the rubbish and re constructed a new fence and gate.

Neglected Garden

This is a common problem for landlords; the garden had fallen foul of a tenant that simply did nothing to upkeep the garden, as you can see a good few hoursí labour and it was as good as new.
