  • Guttering and facias replaced

    10Verified Review

    I was very impressed with the standard of work and overall finish. The quote given was also very reasonable in comparison to other quotes I had had. Richard is someone who takes a pride in his work and has a very good eye for detail. I would recommend him to family and friends.

  • Supply and Fit new outside drain cover.

    10Verified Review

    We have used Richard before to replace our kitchen and he always does a great job. In this case he supplied and fitted a new outside drain cover. It was the correct heavy duty spec and he fitted it securely for us at a time to suit. Richard always takes pride in his work - whatever he is doing and is highly recommended.

  • Roof repair

    6Verified Review

    Richard and his team carried out some repairs to our roof which entailed replacing some tiles. A week or so later we noticed an issue with the tiles so I reported this to him. Richard said he would come round and resolve the issue but, despite further phone calls, that was the last I heard from him.

  • New garden wall and driveway

    10Verified Review

    Richard and his team took up my previous driveway and took out the front wall before building a new one along with relaying the driveway. It looks amazing and we’ve had so many comments from neighbours and people walking by commenting on how good it looks. I’m so pleased with it Iv already asked him to come back and have a look at doing the back garden for me.

  • Concreting work

    10Verified Review

    We needed an area at our offices concreted with an area dug into the ground and the area raised above stone and a superb job was done. The team were very proactive getting back to us regarding an initial quote and undertaking the work. Would highly recommend.
