Richard was very pleasant. He gave a fair quote, turned up on time, did the job as described and tidied up afterwards. He explained everything he was doing, including pointing out problems with previous work that will need to be addressed in future. We would certainly use him again.

Richard was great. He carried out a small job on a property that I rent out. I was able to do everything with him by email and text which made it really convenient for me. He responded promptly to every text and kept me posted before doing anything. Very happy to recommend.

From the response to my job post through to the completion, Richard was excellent. He was clearly an experienced carpenter and managed to navigate skilfully around my 100 year old walls. His quote was competitive and he accurately estimated the time it would take to complete the job, I’d highly recommend Richard and will certainly call him again when I have another carpentry job.
