  • Leaking radiator pipe under floorboards

    Vasile called punctually, with only one day's notice, to fix a suspected leak coming through my lounge floor. Fortunately, the "leak" turned out to be only a bad spill that was seeping back up through the floorboards and flooring underneath, but there was no way of knowing for sure until the floorboard was lifted. Vasile was prepared to wait to establish whether there would be any further leak, but I told him there was no point in waiting around and that I would phone if there was. I was asked him what I owed him, and he rather reluctantly accepted £26. I would be more than happy to hire him again, and would recommend him.

    The refurbishment Vasile did on my house was fantastic. The work was done to budget within agreed time scales. The quality of the work was marvellous. Vasile was easy going and friendly, very trustworthy and nothing was too much trouble. When we sold the house people were fighting to buy it and we received significantly more than the asking price.
