  • Replacing the glass in two internal doors and refurbishing four internal doors

    10Verified Review

    Our experience with The Wood Effect was excellent. During the estimate stage he was helpful and provided lots of tips and advice then the actual work was done really nicely and with obvious care for some very old and beaten up doors. Alan was lovely to have around and I would recommend him to anyone.

  • Front Door frame repair and TV Unit in the Lounge

    9.5Verified Review

    Alan has done a really good job of both our front door repair and TV unit. We found him to be knowledgeable, quick, efficient, tidy and skilled and we are planning to approach him with more jobs in our home next year. We would highly recommend.

  • Replace decking.

    10Verified Review

    This is the second time that Alan and his team have done work for us and we can’t praise them enough. They came today and removed the old decking and the frame underneath. It was completely rotten and was in a dangerous state. They built a new frame and laid new composite decking. We are so happy with the result. We would not hesitate to recommend The Wood Effect and, if we need work done in the future, we will definitely contact Alan.

  • Multiple carpentry jobs over 2 apartments

    10Verified Review

    Alan and his team were 5 star! They're the kind of tradespeople that other trades should meet and set their standards by! Professional, punctual, neat and tidy, courteous, nothing is too much bother attitude. Excellent service and would recommend to anyone! Thank you!

  • Install porcelain patio, composite decking and level the ground to new build garden

    10Verified Review

    Alan and his team landscaped our new build garden. They levelled out the ground, built composite decking, installed a porcelain tiled patio and a boarder of block paving around the edges, where our artificial grass will be installed. Alan and his team worked tirelessly, through extreme temperatures to get the job done. Alan and his team were punctual and polite and their work was completed to a very high standard. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Thank you! :-)
