I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a no fuss job completed to high standard. Thanks again Jess x

  • Fit small Magnet kitchen in flat and remove old kitchen

    Avoid at all costs. Poor quality job and completely unrealiable. He missed several appointments, did not return phone calls and disappeared in the end. I needed to hire someone else to finish the job he started.

    Hammer & Nails Construction's reply:

    A complete lie,job was finished on time and the client paid in full, she was very happy with the work & asked about another job she wanted doing in the future. A problem arose with the door swelling which is not an uncommon problem in severe wet weather, this was rectified & as a good will gesture i offered to paint the back of the door free of charge which she was very happy with & asked if i could do it early in the new year as she was away for xmas, we agreed she would text me when she returned, i did not hear from her until the end of Jan at which time i was out of the country & responded as soon as i got back, Its unfair that after 8 years of hard work for perfect feedback its now tarnished for no reason & i have the texts to prove it.

  • Assemble/paint new shed (6'x2'6"), and outdoor cabinet

    Did an absolute fantastic job of painting and assembling a shed and outdoor cabinet for placement on my balcony. It was a very difficult job to do because the shed had to be assembled and placed on a narrow balcony 5 floors up requiring some very clever thinking on how to paint it and put it together given the limited space and being unable to navigate around the shed once partly assembled. Daniel tackled this job with initiative and very good problem-solving acumen and did the job quickly and autonomously. Daniel is polite and helpful and very trustworthy. He was able to arrive at 8am before I went to work and I left him with a door key and the run of the house (although my cat supervised ;) and I was very pleased to have had Daniel complete this job for me.

He was punctual, reliable, work was carried out to a high standard and we'd be happy to use him again. We were particularly impressed by his attention to detail.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Daniel was excellent, and the people he worked with were excellent as well. I'm quite a fussy client but they excelled in every area for me. They were always here on time and if we decided on a deadline, they would meet it, overall they were just really, really good. Daniel first made and fitted bespoke oak floating shelves for me, and I was really impressed and asked him to come back to do more work. He did my kitchen, put new units and new floor in and all new worktops, he also completely ripped out and fitted a new bathroom suite and tiled everything. I've recommended Daniel to my family and friends and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again.
