Feedback for Mark Forrester

I hired Mark to undertake extensive plastering work on a 100 year old two bed-roomed terraced house. It was difficult for him to give an accurate quote as the true state of the walls and ceiling were not known at the time due to layers of wallpaper.

Mark provided me with a flexible quote I was happy with.

The work turned out to be extensive. Virtually all the ceilings required re-boarding and the walls at least skimming. 'Mr Bodge' had previously done some very poor quality and dangerous work which had to be rectified. This included removal of a shoddy doorway and closing it off and re-opening the original doorway. He reduced the size of another doorway (over-sized sliding door) and inserted a standard door frame. A gas fire and its working had been removed by the gas engineer and Mark refashioned the opening. An old cast iron and slate fireplace was discovered, the grate and hearth had long since gone. He removed all the mess and plaster-boarded the hole. The fireplace now makes a very attractive feature. He replaced some rendering on an external wall and while he had the ladders painted the wall for me and lots more....!

Mark did an excellent job at a very reasonable price. He is a really kind, friendly and trustworthy tradesman. He went over and above what I hired him to do and without charge. Its rare that you meet people these days that love what they do and are so generous with their time.

I will be hiring Mark again and have recommended him to others.
