Job description

1. Bathroom/Utility Room – 4ft by 6ft (roughly).

Remove – sink, small cupboard, shower enclosure (made of breeze blocks) and existing floor tiles.

Leave – existing plumbing and drain for sink, but seal off plumbing and drain for shower.

Put in – new floors tiles and surround (we provide tiles), and make good rest of room – just small plastering job I think.

Put in – skirting board – prime and top coat – we will provide paint.

Put in – new door and frame – currently there is no door or frame. This might be slightly tricky as one side of the door will need to be cut off because the roof slopes.

Paint room – undercoat and top coat – we will provide paint.

2. Replace existing door and frame – straightforward I think – will need to match other doors and frame in hallway but these are standard. Prime and paint top coat – we will provide paints

3. Refurbish bedroom – 19ft by 14ft (5m by 4m)

Remove – small built in shelving

Make good 4 holes in ceiling where old spot lights were removed.

John and his colleagues refurbished a bedroom (repairing skirting, coving and ceiling and repainted) and stripped out a bathroom before replastering tiling and fitting a new door. John turned up when he said he would. He did what he said he would, when he said he would. The work was good quality and he was a pleasure to deal with. The quote was competitive, and an extras (all asked for by me) were accommodated as reasonable cost. What more do you want from a builder? I dealt with some builders before who start with a bang and then disappear - John kept the momentum from start to finish.
