Feedback for Building Dimensions

We originally hired Gary to do a full house renovation (kitchen, bathroom, central heating, electrics) but as the project went along, we found a lot of extra problems with the house which needed attention. Gary always explained the problem and how they could fix it whilst charging us fairly for any new work that needed doing (which ended up taking 3-4 months overall!). In the end, we had new ceilings, walls, floorboards, plastering, roofing, decorating on top of the original jobs, which they took in their stride. When they needed electricians or plumbers, they will source them when necessary.
Gary and Keith were very approachable throughout and easy to talk to - very grateful for all the work they've done and would highly recommend.
