Drainage Specialist

Phil was just fantastic! After an embarrassing mishap involving a drain cover and a disposable BBQ, I feared the worst and had no idea who to call. Having posted my job on Rated People, Phil was the first to respond. He popped over for a look and immediately put my mind at rest. We even had a laugh about what had happened and it was a pleasure dealing with Phil. A genuinely nice, genuine guy who I would not hesitate to contact again for any other building/maintenance jobs in the future. Thank you Phil :)

Absolutely faultless process from quotation to completion. Everything was done with clear communication and to spec. Everything tidied up at the finish to round things off. I'm glad Phil quoted and took the job and would definitely recommend him on the basis of the work he's done for us.

I cannot thank Phil and his team enough. His work is first class, a real craftsman. This job was not straight forward and required someone with experience, excellent skills and the vision to construct exactly what I wanted. I would have no hesitation recommending him to family, friends or neighbours. A fantastic job and with budget and time frames stated.

This was not a straightforward job having to demolish a brick wall and salvaging the bricks to build new pillars for an entrance. Phil did a perfect job so much so that visitors do not recognise the pillars as being new. Really pleased with the work carried out. Will definitely keep Phil's number handy for future projects and recommendations
