Fixed front door lock and replaced handles

Verified Review

Tim was called to attend a job for my mum who is in her 80’s. The job turned out to be more tricky than anticipated however Tim persevered until he had completed it properly and completely for my mum. He was exceptionally punctual, thorough and really worked hard to get the job done. I would say he went well over and above, much more than lots would have done and only charged his original quote so highly recommend this company - thank you Tim for looking after my mum so well!

Repair of conservatory door locking mechanism

Verified Review

We phoned Tim late in the afternoon on a bitterly cold day and he came straight away to Swanage to sort out our conservatory door which we couldn't close properly or lock. He had the right size lock gearbox on his van to effect a replacement and adjusted the hinges to ensure the door opened and closed smoothly. We were very impressed by his efficient and friendly service and have no hesitation in recommending him.
