replace exterior door and locks Carpentry & Joinery
Chris was excellent; hard-working, professional and friendly.
The door was sticking and causing a lot of problems and he was able to pop round the same day I posted the job to see what needed to be done - and thankfully told me we didn't need a new door just the current one planed off a bit.
A couple of days later and it's all done. He arrived on time, did everything he said he would, cleared up afterwards, and told us what to do to prevent the problem occurring in the future.
I'd definitely recommend him and will certainly be contacting him again when we need more work doing.

HERO PROJECT: Finish fence panel erection Carpentry & Joinery
Absolutely Excellent. Absolutely recommend IAC Services. Chris scheduled me in very quickly, arrived lovely and early, got all the bits required to complete the task, and managed to complete the tasks I did not know how to exceptionally quickly.
As this project was done through Mybuilder hero project I was very humbled not to have to pay for anything and am exceptionally grateful. I now have a secure garden which is so lovely, what a wonderful Christmas present.
Thank you so much Chris I am so very grateful and amazed at how easy you made it look!

Door rehanging / adjusting Carpentry & Joinery
A range of niggling jobs - albeit requiring skill - all efficiently done to a high standard. Chris was good enough to knock a bit off the bill at the end of the day after I had chosen to abort one of them due to uncovering a pre-existing separate problem that would have made for a bigger job than the original problem warranted. All cleaned up beautifully afterwards. Would readily recommend Chris, and use him again myself.

furniture assembly and lifting Handyman
Having moved into a new house I have found Chris's help invaluable. He has been absolutely reliable: turned up on the day of my arrival, gave a quote and started the next day.
He reassembled some of the shelving system, dismantled the shed, assembled a highly sophisticated play structure in the garden, installed a loft ladder, changed the locks, replaced the guttering all around.
He happily tackled all the other jobs that propped up during the week, including changing the bath panels, putting up a shelf as well as various accessories in the bathroom. He also tackled an immensely stress reducing rescue operation on my mobile phone, which I had stupidly dropped into some water.
Chris's work is of a high standard, his attitude is highly professional and efficient and he can think outside the box when confronted with a seemingly intractable problem. He gets on with the jobs independently but also consults me when necessary. He always turns up on time and he is kind and cheerful.
I will definitely ask him again for similar jobs and would not hesitate to recommend him to other users of MyBuilder. Thank you.

Chris recently did a really great job of fixing our kitchen cupboards and re-hanging the doors. We had removed two integrated appliances and asked Chris to fit new cupboards to match the rest of the kitchen. We also needed him to re-hang the two doors that had been attached to the appliances. It was a difficult space to work with and we were very impressed with the finished result, he exceeded our expectation. His attention to detail, customer service, timekeeping and positive work ethic will make me call Chris again.

As a first time 'my builder' customer I have only very positive feedback for the experience. Chris Coles (IAC services) replied swiftly to my job advert (repainting bathroom) and gave a very competitive price. He visited prior to starting the work to assess the job in hand and then started the 2 day job within a week of me advertising it. He worked independently - felt safe to leave keys etc with him, did the job to a very high standard and cleared away/left no mess (or paint spills) behind him. I would definitely recommend his painting and decorating service to others and would ask him to quote for other jobs including carpentry in the future
