Reviews & ratings
John and team did a really good job. He was reliable and always kept in contact which is a plus. He even worked around our working hours so there will be minimal disruption to the business. Work finishing is to a very high standard. We had a fallen ceiling due to damp / water damage from the Flat upstairs. They reinforced the ceiling and redid the coving and painted everything. Also very tidy after each visit. Thank you John! I would definitely recommend!
This was a refurb to a house that was built in 1860. What started out as a small job refurbishing the communal areas of a three floor house turned into a major work. John and his men worked tirelessly and without complaining. The result? Completion to everyone’s satisfaction, so too the refurb to the front of the house. Recommended? You bet!
Floor Sanding & Finishing
John quoted initially for a floor replacement, but was able to then quote for a full renovation of my flat which included, subfloor replacement, removing old wallpaper throughout, refinishing old plaster, full rewire, re routing of radiator pipes, boxing, some wood work and a full repaint of the entire flat. The job was a period renovation and John was adaptable to all of the specificities that that entailed. I have recommended him to other people in my building and would happily higher him again. Great!
John and team were friendly, talking me through options when the inevitable unexpected issues arose. He did seem to struggle to find/keep good quality, reliable workers though. Sadly, we discovered after the job had been completed that some electrical problems had been caused as a result of some of the work - I tried to contact John to ask him to fix, but he never responded. We had to spend £385 on a new contractor instead.

Hi Louise, I find this rating very strange... I have checked all email and Sms correspondence threads, We haven't received any correspondence regarding electrical problems from you. More than happy to pay your costs if you can show proof. Thanks John

Hello John, I rang and left a voicemail. The new builder explained that something had gone through the wiring when new boards were put up. It's now fixed, I suggest we leave it at that. Best, Louise

John and his colleague Martin did a great job redecorating our porch. The work consisted of full internal decoration, repair and repainting of wooden window frame, repair and repaint of external and internal doors. We also decided to get the floor retiled in Victorian tiles. John did an excellent job with a fabulous result. Very pleasant to deal with - would definitely recommend.
