Reviews of Carpenters & Joiners in Camperdown, Newcastle upon Tyne
23 May 2009
The building is 40 years old and several external vertical timbers need replacing.
They are all 2" x 1.5" depth/width in two lengths. We need 3 short and 10 long ones replacing. The long ones are 84" and short ones 33". The short ones are below windows, the long ones go up to the roof gutters.
It is essential that the replacements are of suitable timber for external weathering. The old ones need to be taken away.
The old timbers should be easy to remove since they are on the wall surface; the new ones basically just need nailing on the wooden backing.
We will paint the new ones ourselves later.
A photo is attached which show the walls in the background.
Jon got in touch shortly after the job was submitted. Within a few days we'd accepted his very reasonable estimate (cheaper than expected) and arranged the time. Despite a minor glitch in that his previous job took a bit longer than expected, he turned up mid-afternoon with his assistant, and the job was all done, and the garden tidied up in about 2 hours, brilliant!
