    Chris has always been very reliable and we are about to call him again on another job. He has done some work on a number of projects and where damp proofing is needed he has undertaken this work. He is very professional, friendly and straightforward and the quality of work is good. We have recommended him in the past to others.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Chris did a load of tanking and damp work for me on the building. He did a very good job, pays attention to detail and gave us good options regarding the work. Chris knows his stuff, and I felt that he was a very trustworthy and reliable builder. Really happy with the quality of the work which he did a while ago, it's still holding up well! He is also good on queries and aftercare too, has always responded and come back to check in which I have found really useful. I can happily recommend Chris to others.
