  • Fitting 2 curtain rails

    First of all I apologise for this late feedback. This job was a bit tricky due to the age & structure of the bay window ceilings. Barry was prompt in replying & has a very pleasant & considerate manner. The curtain rails were successfully placed, although one does need a firmer fitting which Barry has given me his suggestion which we hope to get done soon.

  • UPVC bargeboard/ridge tile repairs

    You can see why Gary has 100% positive feedback! From start to finish dealing with Gary was a top notch experience. He answered my post on Mybuilder quickly, made arrangements to view and quote for the job quickly and set about the job in an enthusiastic and professional way. The wintery weather did it's best to delay the job but Gary got on with our roofing problem as soon as conditions would allow. He completed the job itself in a conscientious manner and even though it presented more challenges than he maybe saw in his initial assessment he got stuck in and completed the task.

    I would definitely use Gary again and can't recommend him highly enough.

    Cheers Gary.
