John offered an excellent service. Right from the first meeting he was willing to spend time with us to discuss our plans and offer his own suggestions. The job was completed to a high standard and with great attention to detail. We are delighted with the end result and would happily use him again and thoroughly recommend him to others.

Jon is a nice man, very passionate about his work and has a great work ethic. Jon was on time to every visit, cleaned up after himself and made good decisions. His work has not only been praised by me and my wife, but also by other tradesmen who have done work following his. Jon's work was truly bespoke rather than "Sharps" bespoke (standard unit) offering at 4 x the amount. I would highlight recommend Jon, and his work. Chuffed to bits.
