Feedback for Metro Renovations Ltd

Dereck did a fantastic job on our bathroom and bedrooms. This is the second time we have had builders in to renovate the flat. Dereck and Lucas did a substantially better job than the previous lot, who were incompetent in comparison. Things that were especially excellent about Dereck and Lucas' work are:
- All our personal possessions and the previously-laid wood floor were fully and properly protected before any work was started. Throughout the 6 weeks, Dereck continued to cover our possessions even though we were living in the small flat at the same time and had to access things.
- The finish was great in all areas. Dereck put in a lot of effort to get the finish right, especially for the painting and tiling.
- Dereck can be trusted to complete work in good taste. This is extremely important because it means you don't have to supervise 24x7. There were a couple of changes we asked for, which Dereck was happy to do at no extra charge.
- Dereck's rates are very reasonable. We itemised every piece of work and ticked them off together only when we both agreed they were complete. All payments were logged carefully and signed for by both of us.
