  • Broken Lock

    10Verified Review

    Eddie did a brilliant job on our door lock. He stripped it down, cleaned and regreased it rather than fit a new one. He also realigned the door hinges. So now we not only have a door which locks properly but it also closes with no effort. Thank you Eddie

    Eddie was just simply fantastic. Responded quickly to enquiry and same day visit to fix a external door that couldn't be secured. Recommended 100%

    10Verified Review

    Responded to my request straight away and was able to fit me in on the same day. Did a great job which involved more than initially thought but didn't charge any extra. Very reasonably priced, polite and thorough. Would recommend very highly.
