Customer description

Hi I have a refurbishment project requiring the replacement of plumbing throughout the property together with remedial works to make good the kitchen and bathroom. The job involves ripping out and gaining access, complete plumbing replacement, plaster boarding, tiling, kitchen replacement, painting and decorating.

This job is initially for one apartment in a block of 21. There is the potential for all apartments to have the same work done.

Thank you Rob Eyres

This job was always about the finished result and while the job was completed (almost), the overall finish was not there. The kitchen fitting was good but this was subbed out. Things like the plastering and basic fitting needed work after the job was completed. For example a light fitting mounted without wall plugs. Gaps around tiling. A cabinet that fell off the wall. All basic trade work that just required care to do the job right once.
On the plus side the work area was kept tidy, but the final sparkle clean resulted in the kitchen cupboard doors being scratched and damaged. Again it's a case of a lack of basic care.
Martin had a number of positive reviews on My builder but my experience is that while the job was done, the end result fell short of what was expected.
