  • Internal and external works

    9.5Verified Review

    Job done quickly and efficiently with minimum fuss. Pulled out tree and roots undermining garden wall and rebuilt wall, ripped out kitchen, removed internal non-load bearing wall, made good and plastered, broke down and removed waste from garden, opened up cupboard into alcove in hallway, got garden gate made and fitted it. Also rescued and rehomed goldfish from "water feature" aka old tyre full of stagnant water! Splendid work! Very reasonably priced. All good. Chris is an excellent problem solver! We lucked in with availability on day rates when Chris's planned job got cancelled.

  • Taking down part of failing garden wall to make safe.

    9.5Verified Review

    Chris responded really quickly to my posted job and shared my concerns about the wall not being safe. He asked for photos which was a sensible idea and contacted me after looking at them to say he could send two men the following day at 8.30. This meant changing his work schedule as well. When we arrived just after 9.00 work was well underway despite the freezing conditions. The workmen were polite and helpful and put the blocks in a shed in the garden. Such a relief to know the wall is now safe. I would certainly contact Chris again. He is clearly a good man in a crisis! Thank you.

  • Kitchen Extension

    10Verified Review

    Chris and Craig spent over three months completing a kitchen extension for us. The job was logistically and technically challenging due to access and some complex steelwork, but they did a fantastic job. We are really pleased with the end result. The quote was accurate and they had plenty of contacts for electricians and plumbers etc, all of whom were also excellent. Chris also suggested some design changes which made the space even better, and shows how much he cares about the end result. Thoroughly recommended!
