3 Bed Detached - Painting & glossing throughout


Wow... where do I start?!

John called me immediately after we linked on My Builder, and made time to come visit our house to quote at a weekend to fit around my busy schedule. We are new home owners who have had a nightmarish first year in our home. It has been more demolition site than a building site since we moved in almost a year ago; our friends and family thought we had lost our minds (there were certainly many tears and sleepless nights), and although we had completed a vast amount of structural and building work already, there was nothing but bare plaster throughout the whole house. We were desperate to have the decorating done ASAP, so we could have carpets (and a tiny bit of normality) for Christmas, but there was no way we had the time or the equipment for a job of that size.

We explained this to John, and told him about how much we’d struggled all year, and he pulled out all the stops to get us booked in ASAP, and he promised he would get the entire house, including ceilings, skirts, window and doors frames, painted within the week, putting a whole team on the job to make sure it was done.

As I work long hours, John had a key and came and went every day. He managed to work around our scaredy cat in the house, and gave me a text update on how they were getting on every night. When I got home at night the house was always beautifully tidy, and the progress was clear to see. We were absolutely thrilled with the end result, our friends and family even more so, and even better, John kept his promise to finish within the week, so we were able to get carpet fitters out at the end of the week after.

From a house that was barely liveable, to having a home to fall in love with, all in time for Christmas, has been absolutely amazing, and John was the person who really went the extra mile to make it possible for us. We have managed to finally have visitors, and even a house warming party on New Years Eve, all of which seemed a thousand miles away not so long ago.

Thank you so much John, we can’t possibly thank you enough!!
