Karl, was by far the most honest with his professional advice, quote for the job and ideas from the start. He's a no frills, no nonsense hard working kitchen fitter who started at 8 o'clock each morning and didn't finish before 16:30 and worked as late as 18:00 some evenings if he was mid way through something specific.
A man of his word who really is best discribed as a true gentleman. As I refurbished my entire house over a three month period I met and employed a number of trades people so can honestly say, with many comparrisssons, that he stands head and shoulders above the Plymouth competition.
Whilst just a builder and skilled carpenter, he will not hold back in offering valuable but free professional design ideas which result in a first class high end look without the hidden costs a designer may add.
On making a no fault mistake he didn't argue or make excuse he simply held his hand up admitting blame and paid for the replacement. As this replacement was very expensive I felt terrible for him but couldn't afford to pay for it twice but I was truly impressed by his conduct and strong personal values. He is a credit to the trades people of the UK and particularly Devon.
I hope that you can choose Karl as your winner as your finanacial prize will really help him recieve the professional recognition this very decent, self employed one man band deserves. In scoping out who I should give the job too I really did encounter some 'professionals' with posh vans and all the patter but as I wasn't born yesterday I passed up their over inflated prices and poor advice - I suspect they thought I was born yestaerday and that because the house is quite nice thought I may be flush with cash, I'm not.
Please consider Karl favourably.
