I would like to nominate AJ Brown for my Tradesman and Job, for our bathroom re-fit of the year award for 2016.
AJ was absolutely brilliant from Design through to the realisation of their workmanship and to completion of the Project.
The design phase, consisted of several drawings and options which gave us an insight to what as actually possible and how it would look once completed.
Once we agreed the design, we look at the different suppliers and materials, quality was always at the forefront of our conversations. Usually, this impacts and increases cost (which is inevitable). However, AJ was able to negotiate with his recommended suppliers to obtain best price.
We were in daily contact with AJ (as I work away from home during the week), to discuss progress and understand whether there were any issues etc. Any issues we communicated effectively and rectified very promptly.
In terms of completing the project on time, AJ over ran by a few days. However, this was due to his professionalism in his work. He would not accept any less and agreed with his principles.
One of the critical factors in a tradesman for me, is their honesty and integrity. Without a shadow of a doubt, AJ was both, because he cares about his work and reputation.
Is AJ the best tradesman around, probably not, however, we would accept 99% every day because he is reliable!
