Lloyd was lovely from the first time he came round. He was very professional, send me images of past work so I felt sure he would be able to do the job well and he gave the best quote. He has done an incredible job in putting turning my design into reality and the workmanship is lovely. He sent me information and images as the work progressed in his studio which was great. Very pleased with his work and he is a lovely guy, which makes it even nicer.

Some small issues with the varnish and stain colouring on some planks but this was down to the actual wood itself and not the job. Nevertheless the manager came round to have a look and then sanded and re-did the particular planks until he was satisfied that there was nothing more that could be done save for removing the wood itself, proper dedication to a good job.

Had Martin and his team do a lot of work on our new house including completely stripping hall and 2 rooms downstairs, re plastering walls and ceilings and repainting. Did a great job and are planning on having them do more work in the future. Highly recommended.

Billy was absolutely brilliant. He was able to respond really quickly to our post doing the job within 24 hours. He replaced a radiator for us, making a really clean job of cutting into the floorboards and leaving no mess at all. He's really friendly, knowledgeable and we will definitely use him again, and recommend him to anyone looking for a good and reliable plumber.
