We had bought a bit of a fixer upper that we were not living in and this made it difficult for us to find time to see people for quotes as we had to make a special trip to the property. Firstly when Rory came out to quote for the job he was friendly, polite and well presented. He was one of the few people who was able to come at a time to suit us and as I work full time and don’t drive I really appreciated that he could come after work to view the job which very few trades people are willing to do. He explained in detail what he would do, and why, so I felt fully informed and confident in his work. He also explained what he needed us to do to prepare in advance of him starting. His quote was extremely competitive and we were happy to accept his offer. He was able to start very quickly and arrived early in the morning to set up. We have had a lot of work done on the property and he has been one of the few people to not only arrive very early but to be on time. Every day we could see the progress that had been made and he kept the place tidier than we did. I think our house is cleaner than when he started! We even popped in on a Saturday morning to do some other work around the house and was surprised to find him working away, and he said he just felt like getting it done! The work was of a seemingly high standard and he obviously took pride in his work and gave us good advice on how to best look after the plasterwork and decorate it after it was fully dried out. I would, and have, recommended his services to friends and family and will definitely be keeping his number on speed dial for future jobs!
