For many, February can be the worst time of the year. It’s cold, it’s dark, the festive season is a distant memory and spring is still a while away. To top it all off, this year Storm Doris didn't make things any easier for a lot of homeowners.
In an effort to brighten up this miserable month, MyBuilder decided to pay for ten jobs up to the value of £1,000 each, as long as they were posted on the site between 15th and 28th February.
We are now delighted to announce the ten lucky winners of our Free Jobs February giveaway!
And the winners are…
Mark Elkin, from Staffordshire, had a brand new worktop fitted in his kitchen. Mark had only great things to say about T & S Property Maintenance who carried out the job for him: “Tim was great. He replied very quickly when I posted the job on My Builder, and came to do the job only a couple of days later. He did an excellent job and was efficient, friendly and very professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone.”
Barry McCurdy, from Cheshire, is scheduled to have seven oak veneer doors fitted in his house in the next couple of weeks.
Candice Wilson, from Greater Manchester, is looking forward to having the slate roof on her house repaired, and says that winning this prize has made it possible to get the job done even more quickly than she’d expected.
Tom Walker, from East London, will shortly be having new carpets fitted throughout the flat he is renovating for his son and was very surprised to have been selected as a winner.
Anne Hanford-Dodgson, from Leicestershire, had a leaky roof with water coming in through the light fitting! Anne posted the job on MyBuilder and quickly had the roof repaired by PJM Fascias & Property Maintenance. “Pete came promptly after I posted my job. I chose him because he seemed professional and gave a good price. He completed the work, cleaned up afterwards and was polite. He told me what needed repairing or what needed replacing with total honesty.”
Winston Heuer, from Suffolk, has hired a tradesman to retile the kitchen diner in his home as part of a renovation.
Marc McPhillips, in North Yorkshire, has employed a tradesman to renovate his dad’s bathroom.
Melinda Ponsonby, from East Anglia, woke up to find that all her fencing (and her neighbours’) had been blown down by Storm Doris! She had fence panels fixed and all the debris cleared away by Tree & Garden Services. She said of the job done: “I am really pleased with the replacement fencing and would highly recommend using Tree & Garden Services. Their product is excellent quality, they worked fast and cleared all debris away afterwards. Thomas' team were friendly and able to start work soon after their quote. They also displayed a great working knowledge and explained everything. I will definitely use them for any future works.”
Andrea Roberts, from Kent, had a bathroom window that wouldn't open. She is due to have a brand new window fitted next week.
Elaine Farrell, from West Yorkshire, needed an outdated consumer unit safely disconnected and replaced with a new one and has high praise for Luke Pennington Electrical, who carried out the job for her. She says he was very polite and helpful, and worked promptly and efficiently. Elaine says she shall be calling on him to do more electrical jobs for her in the future.
