Steve is a really nice guy and did a great job laying our wooden floors. Recommended!
07 Mar 2020
Engineered wood flooring was laid correctly ..however there were a handful of smaller issues unresolved. Poor reliability. Must get organised a bit better so excuses for not turning up become routine. Steve calls himself a perfectionist .. however his father does not have much patience for "fussy" clients. First day argument with brother surprised me a bit and did not appreciate. Must tackle few issues.
Eventually I asked Steve not to return *again* for more unfinished details. I will do myself.
Harassment for average feedback after noted and photographed errors, today... leave me with the sad conclusion of changing may review to warn others to read more and not let be sold by "ten, can do" attitude that turn out to be.. "no, got no time-idea- option" sort of 180 degree once you have paid.
Please, sir, accept negative, constructive reviews with grace. Nothing personal. Costed me a lot of money but dream offered did not matched to job done. Thank you.

It's a shame and regrettable that the customer is unhappy with the service provided; with regards to the finishing touches which he mentions as unresolved, he paid me in full once the floor was finished, it was only after I left that he mentioned some finishing touches he was not happy with, which I have repeatedly offered to come back and do and after agreeing a date/time he changed his mind and cancelled, which appears to be a result of other personal issues he is having.
TRADESPERSON, 31/01/2020 19:30
Regarding reliability I confirmed with the customer that works would commence on the 08/12/19 and would take 5-7 days to complete, I was finished on the 12/12/19, within the time frame. The wood the customer had chosen come with many knots in the board, which he was not keen on, my father was asking if he was happy with these boards being laid; he seemed fine with the questions and confirmed where he wanted them to go. My brother and I did not argue, perhaps this was miss-understood which is unfortunate.
TRADESPERSON, 31/01/2020 19:38
On 11/01/20 I received approx 15 texts from the customer referring to personal issues he was having with his neighbors etc, I tried to keep it professional trying to confirm a date to come back as he had requested, but my efforts failed. When I would not engage in conversation regarding the customers personal issues he appeared to get more unhappy and I continued to receive texts from him for the next couple of days.
TRADESPERSON, 31/01/2020 19:44
I had advised the customer that he should leave whatever review he saw fit, but I did not appreciate a multitude of texts that were not regarding the works I had carried out, but referred to other personal and unrelated matters. I would not harass any customer in any respect and certainly not for leaving feedback that they wanted to leave.

Please, stop it. Have an excellent review and be happy.

The job was much bigger than the original advert. It included some painting and the whole of a 100 mts2 apartment done after you sold me the dream.
If everything was as you claim it was.. why did you apologise so many times after the shambles that was the first week. I was not happy. You confessed that you messed up and offered to do my bathroom floor job for free to make up for the chaos and waste of time that happened. I decided to give you a chance,
HOMEOWNER, 31/01/2020 21:22
You are a fast talker good seller. But you must work on your weaknesses that are reliability, punctuality and cohesion with your team.. you Dad and brother.
I did not take your offer to do the free bathroom... only for you to walk me with an extra £300 for the painting job we had already agreed.. as your brother was shockingly bad and everything got delayed. You kept disappearing when you said a whole day .. which frustrated me.
HOMEOWNER, 31/01/2020 21:25
As far as the wood planks.. you explained that to me so we got loads of extra boxes to use the good ones, hide under beds the bad and cut off the worst. I was very happy with that. Your Dad came.. all was well until you left and your father just wanted to get on and used the worst of the planks right at the entrance of my sitting room.. no less. The fact that he is disabled and running out of patience fast!.. saying the word .. fussy.. I said.. just get on with it.
HOMEOWNER, 31/01/2020 21:29
This was ridiculous as we had to order extra packs of wood.. which I agreed .. but my sitting room looks messy. You should have been there to supervise. I ended up with excess planks which I had to ask the council to take away. Completely wasted. I sent you the photos of all the things unfinished. Even if you had been here to "finish" things already. You complained of the distance..the baby got ill... what the heck.. it is OK. I will clean paint left everywhere, fill holes around phone sockets, I don't know
HOMEOWNER, 31/01/2020 21:32
and bough a quality stain oil to do the ramps and will try and patch up the ugly planks your father used that are an eyesore. You became a pain to locate and arrange a time. Holidays coming, leaving far, baby ill.. you with a cold.. 7000 Thousand Pounds it all ended up costing. And you have the nerve to harass me and moan on my WhatsApp and then here. Grow up.
HOMEOWNER, 31/01/2020 21:35
... and the payment, I could not believe you asked me to pay when you said you were coming in a few days carry on painting. I was taken aback. I payed you in full when you came to "finish".. only thing is that you did not finish. Oh.. "I will get that sorted next week mate".. was getting repetitive and annoying. Once you got full payment the excuses for not coming got worse. I advise potential clients do not pay until *you* check all is completed.

This man has some nerve.

Finally, a note about nots in wood planks and Steven's Dad. Steven warned me about nots in wood that some find unattractive, well before I got the floor. I told him I liked nots.. that s why I chose a beautiful rustic oak floor. What I did not like is heavily patched up planks with creamy wood filler. That is the reason why we got 30% more planks, to avoid this, That is when he said he is a perfectionist. Pity he left Dad alone to ruin my sitting room beautiful look with planks that were for the bin.
HOMEOWNER, 01/02/2020 18:44
... knots that is, not nots. Thank you for reading and sorry for the low review. All the best.
HOMEOWNER, 02/02/2020 05:20
Good work under pressure. Some misgivings. Poor relaibility. Great listener one half the other half not. Many finishing touches left unfinished...just for me to find later and seek help. Hope help is there. Thank you.

Steve did a great job on our floor and was very accommodating to our requests. We were really happy with his work and he did it efficiently and was able to offer us good advice.
We'd definitely recommend Steve to anyone!

Steve, of SDG Flooring Ltd provided a competitive (and prompt) quotation, was punctual and when stuck in traffic, phoned updates. The floor was laid in good time and to a good finish, which encouraged me to instruct SDG to carry out further work.

this guy knows his stuff gave us great advice no hidden extras on time and tidy.....5 stars would definitely recommend Steve to my friends and acquaintances...

Steven did a great job and the laminate was installed flawlessly. Skirting boards could have been installed a bit better (e.g. removing old caulk before installing) but it came out OK in the end.
Timeliness was good but could have been slightly improved.
Cleanliness was good but could have been slightly improved.
Communication was terrific.
In the end, Steven came back during the weekend to wrap up few things that were left over and we are fully satisfied with the result.

Steve was quick, efficient and also excellent company for the day! His work is top notch and I will certainly be calling him back to do my kitchen too. Great job Steve, thank you!

Steve did a great job. I called him for an office and am so impressed, I am asking him to do my own home too!
