Kitchen Fitting

Verified Review

We got Julian back to help us update our Kitchen. He was accommodating with timelines to help us move our project forward which we really appreciated. He is easy to talk to and had great advice given his years of experience in the trade. I really appreciated Julian's attention to detail and he takes great pride in his work. Based on initial designs and drawings, he delivered the final look we wanted for our kitchen and we are delighted. I will highly recommend Julian for your home renovations.

Refurb of 2 bed, 1 reception flat with kitchen. Bathroom done previously.

Verified Review

This is the 2nd job given to 1st Choice (Julian) so I guess that says something in itself. As previously, Julian was professional, punctual and a person who takes pride in his work. Julian is also good at keeping one up to date and makes sure that he cleans up at the end of each day. Julian is an early starter putting in a full days work each day of attendance he also gives a very good and accurate idea of how long the job will take and advises along the way if there is to be a change. The job done was good. Julian was disappointed by one of his staff on the job but soon sorted this out.

Replacing external cladding, knocking down internal wall, taking up floor and removing kitchen units

Verified Review

Julian gave a clear and concise assessment, timescale and quote for the works we were wanting done and carried out all works to a very high standard in and cleared up thoroughly after himself. In addition to this, he was flexible and adaptable in the face of some unforeseen works which were uncovered along the way and went above and beyond with advice and recommendations for both DIY and future professional work.
