  • Removal of partition wall and more!

    New to the property ladder we were looking for a tradesman we could trust to tackle a variety of refurbishment jobs.

    Andy viewed our plans for the kitchen and quickly came up with solutions, recommending a reputable kitchen supplier and contacting Breckland Council on our behalf to seek authority to remove a partition wall.

    Having just moved into the period property, there were a number of smaller tasks we needed completing alongside the kitchen re-design. These included intricate carpentry work, floor and wall tiling, electrics and plumbing.

    Andy's vast experience within the building trade meant he was able to complete all of these jobs to an extremely high standard, saving us the hassle of managing additional tradesman.

    We are very satisfied with the end-result and what's more, it's been a pleasure dealing with such an honest, trustworthy and thoughtful builder!

  • Works to Premier Bar

    Andy has completed a fine job for us. Well priced and well finished. All in all, very happy and will be going back for more.

  • Small barn converstion

    I have to say we were very impressed with Andy, he came to look over the work that would require doing as we are currently negotiating on a cottage with a barn to convert. He was easy to contact, always called back and arrived as arranged. We asked Andy to look at the barn and advise / quote on all that needed to be done. Andy was very knowledgeable and experienced, making useful, clear concise informed suggestions. The quote he has given us is fair and reasonable. Assuming everything goes well with our purchase, we will definitely be using Andy for all the work that is needed.

  • 100sqm Maisonette for existing steel building.

  • Kitchen installation

  • Kitchen Corian Worktops Need Refurbing

    I hired Andy to refurb my Corian worksurfaces because they had scratches and a bad chemical burn. Firstly Andy impressed me when we discussed the job he explained the process and I could tell he knew what he was talking about with confidence. Then on the actual job the proof was excellent results visually. As you imagine the dust from such a job is high - he had great tools attached to high dust extraction equipment and also cleaned up removing lingering dust.

  • Removal of old kitchen and installation of new

  • To Fit an Under the Counter Refrigerator

  • Howden's Granite fitting

    Andy has been absolutely brilliant with the granite, a highly skilled, very experienced and conscientious tradesman.

    Considering the delicate situation I myself had been left in, Andy has come in at very short notice, and turned the job around for me, with the utmost professionalism.

    As a fellow tradesman, getting to work alongside Andy has been a real privelage, and wherever possible I will be using him in the future.

    Thanks again!!

  • To design and fit kitchen.

    Andy designed, sourced and fitted my kitchen. He was prompt in visiting me to plan the kitchen and obtained the materials from a local supplier.

    Andy was able to complete the job whilst I was away, making the fitting hassle free on my part!

    Due to his experience Andy was able to make suggestions on the finishing touches.

  • Kitchen

    Andy has done a good job, overcame some unexpected problems without a drama and all at a reasonable cost. Would recommend.

  • Cellar tanking/conversion

    I hired Andy for what I thought was a straightforward job of fitting a a new kitchen and waterproofing the cellar in my victorian terrace. Once we got started Andy found the floor between the living room and cellar was completely rotten. Andy reassured me that this would take more work but was well within his capabilities. Sure enough he was right. He had done a fantastic job right from installing the new floor joists, to fitting the oak flooring, thye waterproofing of the basement and extensive replastering. Im not sure there is anything that would phase Andy. Extremely pleased with the outcome, would highly recommend.

  • Complete kitchen installation

    Hired to renovate a room, insulate & plaster walls, move a window, install French doors, flooring, plumbing, electrics & new kitchen. Happy with insulation of the walls, movement of window & installation of French door albeit without the lock & handle. Work thereafter we are dissatisfied with, attention to detail & commitment to the work hired to do was poor therefore resulting in being asked to leave; Andy was paid in full despite issues raised regarding being charged for hours not worked. Attention to related work issues were raised with Andy some of which he had agreed to put right but Andy failed to turn up as arranged to rectify this work. Tradesmen have been employed to rectify Andy's work, which has been costly. Nice guy but could not recommend his services, extremely let down.

  • refitting bathroom to shower

    Can't fault this man very good job and well pleased and will recommend him to family and friends

  • New kitchen required

    Andy did a great job in our kitchen; we are really pleased with the quality of the work. He gave us some really good advice and was always open to our ideas too. We will definitely use him for future jobs. He is a friendly, hard-working and knows what he's doing. Thumbs up! We recommend him!

  • External Rendering Repairs on Small Listed Cottage

    Andy (and team) did a fantastic job throughout the external renovations. I would certainly have him to do further work and would highly recommend him to others. He was professional; reliable; trustworthy; diligent; hard-working; paid a great deal of attention to detail; self-critical; and strived to meet my preferences/requirements.
    Prior to being awarded the work, he thoroughly investigated the cottage to ascertain the extent of the required works; provided a detailed method statement; and explained any areas of uncertainty that may be uncovered during the work (after removal of the render). The pricing was based upon day rates and material receipts, due to the uncertainty involved in the work.
    He undertook the work whilst I was overseas, but provided daily progress photos and consulted by phone - not only to confirm the approach, but to provide different solutions to aspects/problems as they arose (including his recommended solution with reasons). He tackled all aspects of the renovations including brick work; carpentry; ground works; pointing/rendering; roofing; electrics; timber-frame renovation and structural integrity; and decorating/painting. He maintained the site in a neat/tidy condition; was considerate of neighbours/public; and rectified any minor deficiencies that I pointed out. He was also very flexible and accommodating to fit in with timescales/constraints associated with regular guests staying at the holiday cottage property during the period of the works.

  • Refit ensuite bathroom and make good

  • New upstairs bathroom

  • Fitting and tiling a bathroom

    The work carried out was amazing, we gave them a very short amount of time to carry a large job. To be able to complete the job they worked all hours and also took on other jobs to make sure our house was complete before the carpets and furniture turned up. One day starting at 4am and finishing at 10pm. I now rate them so much we have hired them to carry out a full kitchen refit. They showed that they are always there for the customer and they are very self critical about there own work and strive for complete perfection which shows in the finish. It's a refreshing feeling knowing there are still firms that are all for supplying on what the customer needs. I totally recommend Donnelly & Goodswen Property Services.

  • Remove floorboards & joists & replace with new 30x13ft

    The scope of the work changed considerably due to unforeseen issues arising just before the scheduled job was due to start. Andy was able to deal with the additional work very professionally, he always turned up when he said he would and put in a hard day's work. Andy consulted with us at each stage and took our views on board before going ahead. We were very pleased with the standard of the work and reliability.We look forward to Andy coming back and doing further work for us.
