Feedback for M.A. SKINNER

I hired Mark and his team in Jan '17 to create an Oak Frame for an outdoor 'cart-lodge' type structure. I was so pleased with the work on the frame that I expanded the list of jobs and am already planning on what other jobs I can give him! He was willing to work in all weather conditions without any complaint, even storm Doris! He arrived punctually at the agreed time and put in a proper day's work. He does like a cuppa tea, but managed to drink it and work at the same time (who says blokes can't multitask!)

Mark is very professional, personable and trustworthy. He even likes dogs. He was clear with me what was possible and what was not, and made lots of recommendations throughout the build. He is clearly very experienced and I suspect that he could turn his hand to pretty much anything. His communication skills were top class, keeping me informed throughout. Many thanks too to Darren, Mark's brother-in-law, for his excellent work. A fantastic family company that I will definitely call upon next time I have a project that is beyond my own talents.

I would highly recommend Mark and his team. Give him a go, I am sure you will not be disappointed.
