I contacted Kevin Whitfield yesterday afternoon as my builders suspected to have stumbled on an outbreak of dry rot whilst working on my new kitchen. He offered to come to the house this morning and have a look at it. He inspected the woodwork, masonry and adjacent shower room with care and attention. He informed us of his findings and explained that there was not dry rot on the wall. No charge was asked for the survey and I am grateful for the very prompt visit and very easy explanation that he gave us all. Thank you!

The work was first class, completed on time and to the agreed price. I have never met builders who were so tidy bearing in mind it was a messy job hacking off the old plaster. I would thoroughly recommend them.

Damp came as a shock on our house sale survey, so we contacted Kevin for a quote. He was able to commit to a quick timescale and did everything he promised on time and to budget. Really friendly and trustworthy, cleaned up well and the walls looks great now - he even artexed to blend in the new work with the existing wall which was over and above the quote, so no hesitation in recommending him to others. If I need any work doing on the new house, I wouldn't use anyone else. Thanks Kevin.

Kevin and son Darren started on time on the agreed date and worked hard to complete the work to my schedule. The work itself was done skilfully, and we're now confident that the long standing problem caused by the poor quality workmanship of the house builder is fixed. A good company to deal with, and I'm happy to act as a reference for them.
