Hang of new internal doors.
Asked Richard about hanging some doors for me on metal frames. He said he had not come across this before but would be happy to do the job. He arrived on time to do the work and started after I had explained everything I wanted doing. I left for work and when I came back all six doors were on and the house was left clean and tidy. Doors look lovely with their new handles on, and they all close perfectly. He did a lovely job and I'm very pleased. Would thoroughly recommend him to anyone. Thanks Richard.

Repaired wardrobe.
Having had a built in wardrobe collapse on me, I made contact with Richard. Richard turned up promptly to give me a quote to repair within a day of making the call. Richard suggested several options for me to consider, along with different prices. Once a decision was made, Richard turned up on the agreed day and very promptly repaired the damage, keeping disruption to a minimum and left the area immaculately clean and in good order. The repair made was of a great standard and I am sure will keep my clothes in good order for years to come. I would recommend Richards services.

Fit a new front door to property.
The work was for my very elderly Aunt. I had to arrange it from a distance as I do not live locally. Extremely helpful with advice re sourcing the door and fittings. The work was carried out in the time stated and was very tidy and professional. I would highly recommend RG Carpentry and would definitely use again.

Fitting skirting boards to new conservatory.
Richard brought the boards for me to paint before fitting (his idea) so that I wouldn't have the hassle of painting them after fitting. When they had dried, he cut and fitted them. The standard of his work is excellent. The finished result is just fantastic. A beautiful finishing touch to our new conservatory. Happy with the price too! Richard gave me confidence that he would do a good job. He is conscientious, efficient, straightforward, skilled - what you want in a tradesman. We'll definitely use him again when the need arises.
