Bathroom fitter

We are really pleased we chose Peter to tile and fit our ensuite and would highly recommend him. Peter's price was competitive, he arrived in good time each morning, worked hard each day (the hottest two weeks of the year!), was clearly very experienced, as well as being happy and a pleasure to have around for two weeks (and loved by our dog). He used other experienced tradesmen when necessary (electrician and plasterer), who also worked to his high standard. We will use him for further work.

Peter was really helpful from day one, providing recommendations for what shower to buy etc. He was also happy for us to buy the bath & vanity ourselves for him to fit as I had seen exactly what I wanted on soak. He even noticed little details like the old air brick & suggested a fan vent to replace it & also when the vanity was in place we all agreed there toilet seat was cheap & ruined the look so he turned up the next day with a replacement! Thank you Peter!

I cannot praise Peter enough. From the moment he came to provide a quote, to the moment he finished his standard is 5 star. He suggestion to have a digital shower, was something I had never heard of, and it is amazing. His quality of work, and value for money is outstanding. I had no worries or issues with giving him me house key for over a week and he would come and go as he pleased, tidying up after himself each day.... he even vacuumed my house when he left. I cannot recommend him enough!

Peter and his son Tom provided an excellent service from start to finish, always explaining the options available and costs involved for the work. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Peter Howell arrived on time, very polite and friendly. Looked at where the problem was and said he had a pump in the van and could fit it today. This was excellent news (not having two showers working). There was another man with Peter and they both started working on the job.. The work was soon done, just over half an hour. All was clean and tidy when they left. Cost was a little more than expected but the relief of getting the showers mended overruled that.

We are very happy with the two bathrooms that Peter and Tom converted to showers. The price was very reasonable and the work was carried out to a high standard. Peter and Tom are very friendly and helpful. We have no hesitation in recommending them .
