Reviews of Traditional Craftsmen in Lambeth, London
16 October 2012
I would like to get a qoute for a creation of a storage based seat within my bay window. 91inch at longest point, 24 inches deep and approx 19 inches tall.
Andrew made a gorgeous bay window seat. He was considerate of our home and did good work, even helping move sockets and making the finish of the bay window seat match the rest of the woodwork as close as possible.
Would definitely work with Andrew again.
Repair to four dining room chairs, cleaning, glueing polishing and re-upholstering seats.
Horace did an excellent job in restoring these chairs. He completed the work in less than two weeks and made the extra effort of bringing two of them back to show me, to make sure I was satisfied, before he finished them all. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who wants a meticulous professional job done.

Brixton Hill, SW2
I have two double glazing units that need replacing. Four internal panes of glass above bedroom doors that need installing. I need some advice on the glass in and above my front door. Lastly I need three sizeable mirrors installed. I know which glass I want above the internal doors. I have a quote for the purchase of mirrors.
We would like to fit an extractor fan into our kitchen window.
Restoration of a Victorian tiled external path. 3/4 of the original tiles are still there, but the yorkstone and edging tiles needs replacing. New concrete base probably needs laying. The path is 3.1m by 1m.
The paint layers on some coving need stripping away with care to reveal the original detail. I think I would prefer peelaway7 to be used from what I have read. It is in a georgian listed building so the work needs to be done with care and by someone who knows what they are doing and who has done it lots of times before. I would want to check references.
I would prefer if you contact me by email first as my phone only works on speaker so it is difficult to use. The room has about 16m of coving. There are other rooms to be done but this one needs doing first as a new kitchen is going to be installed soon.
