About us

Can Do is run by Stephen Barker, an experienced project manager with a wealth of experience to help any home improvement project run smoothly.

As well as being trained in electrical, mechanical and electronics Steve is an experienced technical sales consultant and management and also has twenty years experience as a property renovator and furniture restorer.

Definitely not just your ordinary ‘handyman’, what sets Steve apart is his ability to communicate clearly, to think creatively and to easily solve problems. He has a passion for home improvements that are not just attractive but practical and workable.

Steve manages all projects for his clients, regardless of size and carries out the majority of client work personally including kitchen and bathroom fitting, tiling, flooring, plumbing carpentry and electrical work.

He also has a team of trusted tradespeople who he can rely on to help him with additional expertise and to give the best result. These include plasterers, master carpenter, architects,heating engineers, appliance engineers and painters and decorators.

Steve is reliable, hard-working, trustworthy and kind. He has consistently helped out my elderly parents with odd jobs in their flat – which has been a godsend.
