Standard of workmanship was excellent. Andrew and Stuart were very accommodating and ensured that they tidied up before leaving for the night. Work was completed ahead of schedule, and to a high standard. Would definitely use firm again.

Stuart did a fantastic job. He was polite, tidy and very helpful in discussing the best way to approach the job. We would not hesitate to recommend him to others and will definitely use him again for similar jobs. In addition, we found his quote to be very reasonable and the quality of the work to be excellent!

I pride myself doing a good job every time. I never take on another job until yours is complete and you are happy and happy to recommend me. That's how I've always gained most of my work. I am new to Rated People but hope my work shown speaks for itself.

Fantastic job all around and even helped with small odd jobs that I couldn't do due to a knee injury. Will definitely ask David to come back later this year or next year to do some more jobs as the quality of the work is excellent! Thanks David! Tom
