Fitted new kitchen and bathroom suite.
Ash fitted a new kitchen suite this summer. Throughout the whole process I was kept informed about the decisions they were making. He organised for a kitchen planner to attend the property and carry out the necessary surveys. At which time, Ash sent me some kitchen plans for my perusal. When I was happy with the plans, they started work. I believe that they worked quickly and diligently. At the end of the work they organised to have all the rubbish removed and to have the kitchen professionally cleaned. The kitchen really did look good at the end of the job!

Refurbishment of terraced house
I don't believe this company are the best general builders around but this was a whole new experience for me, I have never had a house refurbished before, communication was not easy overall. Some of the lads working for this company work very hard and well. The painter and the carpenter involved were good, but I thought some of the decisions made seemed strange. Such as, smartly, boxing in a Saniflo which I hope doesn't go wrong. I visited a good reference site but some things were not done as well for me such as the kitchen tiles although this was acknowledged without argument. Generally teething problems have been fixed and I am happy in my new house.
Customer in Portsmouth, 20 June 2013  
Response from Trade Mates:
These works were completed over a 2 month period and involved a complete refurbishment of the property. I worked very closely with the customer and gave him updates on progress at all times. All progress reports were done via email and text and I have copies of all of these. I am unsure why the customer mentioned that communication was difficult. The customer made regular visits to the house during the works and was happy with progress. He also mentioned about the saniflow that was fitted to a new ensuite bathroom that I installed, the saniflow was boxed in with access to the system in the event of future maintenance. It looks very tidy and hides the saniflow. This created a very tidy part of the bathroom. The only part of the job I was not happy with was some tiling in the Kitchen, I removed the tiles and offered to fit new, however the customer chose to have this done at another time. After the main works were completed the customer asked me to quote for further works which I did and then instructed me to complete those works, I would question that if he was happy with my works, why would he ask me to carry out more works.

Complete renovation of a property inside and out.
Ashley proved to be highly conscientious and wanted to provide a quality job whilst remaining considerate to budget. From the design stage he provided good ideas which both updated the decor and remained sympathetic to the character of the property. Quotes for additional works (garden and repointing) were fair and reasonable. I was highly satisfied with the execution and finish of the works and have no hesitation in recommending Ashley.

Re-pointing, replacement of fascias and soffits, new guttering, repairs to outhouse door and frame.
The works was in three phases which started on 06/11/2012 to replace the old guttering with new guttering, and recommenced on 10/01/2013 to do the re-pointing and repairs to a outhouse door and frame, with the fascias and soffits finished on the 22/01/13. Works were delay due the heavy downfall of snow on the weekend of the 18/01/2013. Trade Mates recommenced work on the 21/01/13 which was a bitter cold day with snow still on the ground. All the works were excellent and to a high standard and Trade Mates turned up when they said they would. Throughout the works all communications between myself and Trade Mates were carried out by email which proved very successful in respect of the invoicing and notification of prompt payments into their account.

Front bay concrete redressing and painting, fit new fascia and soffit and change glass roof on front storm porch.
I am absolutely pleased with this work. The advise they provided prior and during the work were very helpful and reduced my overall cost for the job. Some neighbours come to ask who did my fascia and soffit thinking I must have done it myself but I have had to tell them the truth, "I am not very handy when it comes to these DIY things". I recommend this trader if you want a honest opinion of what works are needed and costs.
