Contacted the guys and Denise got back to me within a couple hours. Explained nature of job, we both agreed it best she properly surveyed works before commuting to price. We arranged viewing which was prompt. Conditions and price agreed, start date came with no delay. The team were prompt and arrived when they said they would. Extremely happy with works, would not hesitate to use them again. *They insisted on cleaning up after every day and showed my property respect the way you would like somebody to.

Barry came out to give the quote when he said he would. Really nice chap. Gave him the job. He and his "mate" (can remember the other guys name), came out when they said they would. Did a good job, and tied up behind themselves. I'd use Barry again.
