    Jake was fantastic through out! Since he arrived to look at the job all the way to completion. The work was carried out to a high standard and we are very happy with the end result 👍🏻👍🏻

    Despite trying to contact Jake to return to finish the job, iv had had no luck and its been 12 weeks now. I have no handle fitted in my lounge. Old doors not taken away, left in my garden with a bag of rubbish. Two doors need to be trimmed as their sticky. Iv advised Jake of this but he wont return my last 3 messages . Really disappointed as i had saved for 18 months to get this job done. He promised he would be back to finish off the job. And i paid him. Im scared i will get trapped inside my lounge as theres no handle. Can provide picture evidence. Such a shame

    Jake is the best tradesman we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. The quality of the work is brilliant, communication is great (he always turns up when he says he will), and he was very quick and willing to sort out any problems. Would highly recommend Jake and Elite Carpentry to everyone.

    The quality of work is poor, never came back to finish the job, skirtings and architraves weren’t finished and not level, left a lot of damage putting up doors too. Happy to provide photos of the state they’ve left our house in.

    They were prompt, reliable and kept me up to speed with all details and were very understanding of what were small but tricky jobs.
