  • Re-point chimney stack and gable-end wall. Investigate and fix evidence of any water ingress

    10Verified Review

    Was given a very competitive quote for the work. Stephen arranged for scaffolding and once he had an opportunity to closely inspect the areas of dampness, he identified the potential causes and set about fixing, with new flashing, re-pointing of the brickwork and sealing the chimney pots. I was very impressed with the quality of the work, and Stephen kept me updated regularly on issues that he had found and how he intended to fix. The work was completed far more quickly than I had anticipated, and within budget. I would be happy to engage Stephen again for any building work.

  • I needed some re-pointing.

    10Verified Review

    As expected, Stephen Purse arrived first thing in the morning. He does the pointing in a professional, efficient, and courteous manner and cleans up afterwards. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give him 14.

  • Knock down/smooth over crumbling wall and plaster gaps in ceiling


    Steve was very kind to accommodate me at short notice. He did an excellent job fixing someone else's mistakes, and to a high standard. Reasonably priced, tidy, friendly and polite. I'll be using him again in future.

  • Build new stud wall, with door, linings, architraves and skirting and newly plastered

    10Verified Review

    Can't rate Steve highly enough. A very reasonable quote was followed by an excellent job where he arr vied pre-8am everyday and worked tirelessly (in particularly hot weather), until the job was complete. The finished work is top notch and I have no hesitation in recommending Steve ... A really nice chap, clearly a competent builder, a very capable joiner and plasterer too. A man of many trades all to a very high standard and a proper grafter, what more could you ask for!

    Steve came to view the work involved, gave me a price and did the work a few days later. An extremely nice man, good work and just got on with the the job. Highly recommend him.
