We had a driveway fitted in August 2014. The 1st 2 days of the job were great, everything was done as we had been quoted. However parts of the driving were not filled in properly so we tried to call for Mark to come back. It took over 2 weeks for him to respond and when he finally did come back, he came when we weren't in and filled the holes with different colour concrete. So we now have dark patches of grey on our driveway which makes it look very scruffy. Mark never responded to us again.

Excellent service, came out very quick to quote for some ridge pointing, removing an old flue pipe, and replacing dodgy gasket on soil vent, also noted some extra cracked tiles and replaced at a fairly reasonable price, came back a couple of times to finish the job after ordering the right tiles, good professional service.
