    Repointing brickwork.
    Jamie and his team did what they said they would do, when they said they would do it. They did an excellent job. Kept the site clean each day and on completion. I would definitely recommend Abode.

    Jamie was a pleasure to have in the house. He was polite and cheerful, and meticulous about detail of his work. Very positive-everything was possible, and people he brought in to work with him were also of high standard.

    Building a dividing wall to enable one large room become two.
    Jamie Gregson had previously done work for me before. We asked him to come over to France to carry out this work. It was done quickly, on time and carried out to a very high standard. I can highly recommend this man for all you building and renovation work, he is pleasant, thorough and will be honest about your expectations and how the work will proceed and be carried out.

    Refit bathroom
    Jamie did a fantastic job of converting separate toilet and bathroom, both of which were tired and dated into a marvelously fully tiled modern combined bathroom and wc.

    Kitchen fitting.
    Work was completed to a good standard. Jamie is a decent man who cares about the quality of the finish of his work. With this particular job I thinks he underestimated the amount of time it would take to complete the fit of the kitchen, but he was happy to work at unsociable hours to complete the job to a good standard. I would recommend Jamie and would use him again for future projects.

    Re-fitting bathroom.
    Complete refitting of bathroom including tiling, new radiator, skimming walls and ceiling and new spot lights. Jamie was courteous and polite and the quality of his workmanship was very good. The work was completed on time and anything that didn't quite go to plan was put right by Jamie with no quibble. Our only observation would be that communication could be better. Would not hesitate to recommend.

    Refit kitchen.
    Fitting a kitchen with tiling of walls and floor, plastering, cutting and fitting solid oak work surfaces and window sills - is there no end to Jamies talents?
