Bathroom Floor and Tiling

Verified Review

Excellent work again by Chris. On time and on budget. He laid a heated flooring mat in the bathroom and then tiled the area. Great addition to the bathroom which he installed 3 years ago. Also, decorated 3 rooms to a high standard, excellent paintwork skills, carpentry of the skirting boards was also to standard. Very pleased and have no reason to choose anybody else.

Chris fitted two bathrooms plus decorated three rooms

Verified Review

Chris did an excellent job fitting two bathrooms and decorating three rooms. It was a tricky job but everything was coordinated extremely well, and I am delighted with the outcome. Even when there were delays (not due to Chris!) he never complained and just got on with it. Chris pays close attention to detail, and is very thorough. I can always rely on Chris; he has done work for me for many years including renovating my rental property. I would highly recommend him, and thank you once again Chris for your superb work.

To fit a new bathroom

Verified Review

Chris did a fantastic job fitting and tiling a new bathroom ! There was nothing he couldn't do and got round any problems to a very high standard . He even worked through his lunch break so as not to disappoint us by not finishing the job on time . Will definitely use him again as planning to get some new kitchen worktops in the new year .

Bathroom Renovation

Chris did an excellent job. It was a very small space to work in and he made it work. He was efficient and quick to get the work done and even threw in a few ideas in regards to how to execute the bathroom to a much better quality. Really pleased with the finished look and functionality, highly recommend. Will be contacting Chris again for future projects.
