Laying a vinyl floor

Verified Review

Work carried out well. Peter was pleasant and worked well

Location: PL20
Reviewed in: May 2023

Pete laid loft insulation in a tenanted property and replaced the broken hinges on the rear gate.

Verified Review

Pete did a great job of sorting out a couple of jobs which I had been struggling to find the time to do. He was very easy to get on with and although the tenant was late returning to the property to meet him he just got on with the outside jobs whilst waiting for him to return. The loft insulation was laid very well and he sent photos and videos of all completed work. Highly recommend.

Assembled metal shed

Verified Review

Asked for a quote, attended property to look at instructions to enable correct quote. While I went to make a cup of tea he began to assemble the shed when I went back I asked him how much it would be and he said he will work it out but it won’t be very much he continued and then price me at nearly £300 afterwards my neighbour asked him to do some work for her and he never turned up and when she rang him he said he would come and he didn’t turn up pity because he was a very friendly man

Reply from Hubbyhire Ltd

I was puzzled as this work was done months ago and I have since been asked to do more work for the customer. She had been let down several times when I arrived and advised of the hourly / daily rate which she was happy with. It took 14 hours over 2 days as the shed and base was not flat packed and had to be completely built from scratch. I only charged her for a day and a half and she was happy with that and paid straight away. The neighbour wanted large cracks in the exterior render filling but a lot of rain had got in so I said better to wait and let it dry out. She got someone else to do it without it drying out first and seal all the moisture in the wall of a mobile home which I wouldn't have done.

Peter has been an absolute godsend. He is reliable, trustworthy, honest and exceptionally competent in his execution of every task asked of him. We've already booked him for next year!! He is worthy of the highest possible commendation.
