After posting on this site I had two offers of interest. John immediately sent a quote for the job and stuck to it. The other guy came and had a look and said he would send a quote but never did. John answered queries rapidly and arrived promptly on the day. He worked efficiently and incredibly cleanly. We are very happy with the finish of the job and would recommend and use John again as he obviously really cared about the work that he was doing as well as being incredibly skilled. 5 stars all around.
