although general tiling was good, i wasn't happy with what he did around the window and service pipes. asked for money when he hadn't finished sections and then didn't turn up when he said he would. communication was very poor and at the end of the day i would not recomend him to anyone
bad payer and never on time...kept me waiting 40mins to give quite...an hour and a half to start the job...2 months for tiles...once took over 2 hours to reach Bedminster from St.George after claiming to be on his way with grout
better to lie than not communicate ??
had to involve client and threaten court over payment..which was also late.
This is a revenge rating and o can provide photos of the finished job..which the client was very happy with

the newly plaster walls had to be re-plastered due to a 55mm bow in one wall...and window was 25mm out of true over 600mm. Centre of new ceiling was 50mm lower than corners

Dave started well did some nice tiling but didn't finish some areas we wanted finishing better. Ie left a cut tiled edge without a trim. Disappointingly we haven't heard from him since.
was fully discussed and explained what finish would be and client was going to fill edge themselves...changed their minds AFTER work completed and full payment made
arrived once at appointed time..now answer at the door. Not entirely all down to me

David is a perfectionist and worked a very long day to get my bathroom job done. His work is great and would highly recommend him to any who needs a quality job! I am already looking to hire David again to do my hallway and WC flooring....

Dave rarely turned up when agreed to. Constantly asked for money for work he hadn't completed saying if I didn't give it to him he wouldn't be coming so gave him the money and after giving him nearly the full amount for work and matierials the final time he asked for more money I didn't give it to him and he got aggressive and said he wasn't finishing. He's kept £75 worth of materials I paid for plus money for work not done. Bathroom has been left 1/3 complete and cost me £400 in rework and to complete.
Also I am expecting this to get a reply saying I'm lying but happy to provide photos of work and copies of correspondence.
Anyone considering hiring read the reviews in detail- many are actually for his father Keith something I didn't notice before hiring.

The job was undertaken on a reduced price based on it being used as a filler between other planned work. This was accepted, as they bathroom had already been 1 year in progress. After the first day, there was constant pressure to complete. An interim payment was requested, but the client chose to pay more than was requested. 18m2 or 23,5m2 was completed. 1/3 only? Overpayment was 44.00 which will be returned. Client has materials on site belonging to me. Father retired more than 2 years ago.

I withdrew from the job when the client lied to me, stating a payment had been made but her banks policy was not to comply with the law regarding electronic payments. Really? One 30 minute conversation regarding my cash flow problems and lies told about the "payment" made, which the client has admitted in her comments that it was not paid were verbal and no transcripts are available.

1 month since job withdrawn and money and materials have not been returned despite written agreement that they would be within 2 weeks

Dave came out and tiled a shower enclosure & wash hand basin area, as well as two fireplace hearths. The walls in the bathroom were incredibly wonky (one tiler had refused the job previously) but Dave has done an outstanding job and the walls now all look straight. He had several opportunities to make a bit of money off us, but was honest and didn't. He left the site tidy, was very knowledgeable & was a pleasure to work with. Excellent value for money. Would definitely hire again & recommend.

Completed a tiling good job for us quickly. Also was helpful and collected the tiles for us.

Poorly sealed floor leading to smudging within weeks of laying. All tiles were cut inside with serious amounts of dust everywhere. Keith, Davids dad was faultless but overall due to continuing issues including poor finishing and continued expense, I cannot recommend him
This is complete lies. Tiles were cut in the back yard. Dust created after this client wanted tiles changing from finished floor (didn't like the natural tiles they purchased) and when cleaning old fireplace before tiling. Floor sealed as per sealer manufacturer and stone retailer recommendations. Some sealer was stripped off. No further communication has been received since. This lead was purchased October 2014 and work completed soon after:- rated January 2017 I think response speed speaks for itself.

Excellent work finished to a high standard, I would have no hesitation in recommending Keith on the basis of the work carried out. Very knowledgeable regarding underfloor heating and all aspects of the job. Thank you.
