  • Drill a hole into the ceramic sink and fit a tap

    Christian contacted me to change a tap from a wall mounted on to one in the sink. I also needed tiling and a work top cut from a 1msq piece of oak. When I saw he had those skills too, we agreed on 730£ for the 3 jobs. The tiling is impeccable but I have an issue with the finishing. The tap looks nice but because of the type of sink it's installed in, the pull out shower mechanism doesn't work very well. I found the worktop installation very rough looking even though I said I was probably going to cover it later on and I'm having to sand the edges smooth myself. Christian asked me how much were the other quotes for the tiling and the worktop and I told him 170 + 250 and he said that he could give me a special price of 730 for the lot which works out at 420 for moving the sink unit, drilling a hole and changing the tap. He told us at first that it looked very complicated and he didn't know what would be behind the plasterboard but the whole job was complete in under 12 hours, not counting the time spent buying grout. I feel like a mug.

    Christian James Bathrooms and Kitchens's reply:

    Amazing feedback thank you for rewarding me for walking up all those flights of stairs, driving in hazardous conditions to get to the job in the snow and ice. This is the only negative feedback I have EVER received in all my trading years, all other customers would discuss any issues which I would happily resolve immediately. However you never mentioned anything of the above in conversations we had. There was no visible easy way of doing the tap - all pipes were
    In the wall. I had to cover my back. This was followed by the customer asking can I do other bits as they were finding it hard to organise everything and get other trades to do those jobs. I gave the customer a price based on their verbal information and then in theory saved them a lot of money. A big contradiction in terms of finishing. The customer had waited a long time for the work and hence I did it fast without taking breaks.
    I should have realised when asked this was a
    problem customer - why the kitchen cupboard door split - I point out all of your existing doors have split! I was then asked about water on the floor, after investigating, the radiator TRV valve is leaking, this was NOT part of the job, I diagnosed and fixed at no charge.
    The worktop had not been stored correctly by the customer, it had bowed badly which made cutting with a Mafel plunge cutter difficult, especially in a top floor flat. I asked and answered questions which I obviously thought were acceptable, tradesmen should beware.

  • Dripping bathroom tap

    Christian responded and came round very quickly and did the job with minimum fuss.

  • Dishwasher fitting

    Did a great job installing our dishwasher, talked me through the options and made what I thought would be a difficult job seem very simple. Would definitely recommend
