Landing and stairs carpet

High Peak 

After 4 years of renovating a house by myself and as a female living alone, I have been let down or ripped off by countless tradesmen who think they can take advantage of a single woman. The last task that needed doing was the carpet laying on my stairs and landing . After one fitter turned up, refused to do the job and never came back I posted a job on here. Gareth got in touch almost immediately and instead of treating me like an idiot (as most male tradesmen do unfortunately ) he was incredibly friendly and enthusiastic and went through exactly what I needed doing and gave me a quote there and then. I agreed for Gareth to come and he turned up on time and with a smile. I live on a hilly road without parking and Gareth turned up and carried his gear up to my house without complaint and after having a look at the underlay and grips that I had, decided to replace them with his which were much better quality absolutely free of charge. I felt very at ease having Gareth in my house, which is so important to a lone female, and he was very chatty and pleasant to be around. He also made a big fuss of my dog so she was happy aswell. He did a fantastic job of the carpet for a great price and my house is now finally finished and looks amazing. It's a shame that I only discovered Gareth at the end of renovating my house as I would have used him a long time ago and I recommend him to anyone needing carpets laying.
