    As always, Des and Sam delivered! On time, friendly, great rapport between them and jobs completed to a high standard. Insulating a bay roof, sealing a small conservatory water leak and resetting some flag stones, the duo worked hard, under hot sunshine, to complete the work in 4 hours. Since the work required was less than that previously estimated, Des lowered the price, demonstrating his integrity and high standards of customer service. Have already booked them for our next work.

  • Garden redesign

    10Verified Review

    Des and the team did a fantastic job on our garden. We had what I can only describe as shreks swamp which has been transformed into an amazing space! Thank you so much Des for bringing this in on budget despite the bad weather.
