Paul Mitchell

  • Replaster ceiling and paint

    Paul and his colleague did a great job. The ceiling looks like new.

  • Repair to garden fence

    Very quick to respond, and made a good job of the repair. Left the site tidy and the fence as good as new

  • Bathroom Touch Up - Wall plastering and filling

  • Sealing gap under kitchen sink cupboard.

    Job done on time and on budget! Thank you.

  • Kitchen to be repainted

    Paul arrived on time and was pleasant throughout. He did a great job with painting my kitchen and I would not hesitate to hire him again.

  • General maintenance of rented property

  • Fixing whole is wall and adding access to pipes

  • Repainting of 2 storey, 4 room house.

    Would highly recommend Paul and his team. They were efficient, thorough and good value for money. We had a tight turnaround between tenants for when the house would be vacant and Paul managed to fit us in a get the job done in the time frame.

  • Paint 3 rooms

  • Repair Creaking Floorboards Room 15 by 15 ft

    I had a problem with creaky floorboards, one squashy, in my 15 ft*15 ft living room. The people in the flat below were being disturbed. Paul identified the causes of problems. The end of a board was not supported on a joist and had become damaged. Paul cured this, inserting a replacement board. Paul also added many additional screws, especially along one joist where the boards had not been secured. He also identified problems with work done when pipes were laid under the floorboards a few years ago. The wrong screws had been used; Paul quickly and efficiently replaced all these. He also found that a nail had been left sticking right out and another one had penetrated a pipe. I asked Paul to give me any info about the layout and state of the pipes under the floorboard if he had to lift any boards, which he did. As I said we discovered that a nail from the work a few years ago was sticking into a pipe . Paul is sending me a photograph. Fortunately, these pipes are not in use and do not contain water!
    In summary, it was a pleasure to work with Paul. He was friendly, professional and explained what he was doing. He turned up on time, worked extremely hard to finish the job in one day. He happily lifted and replaced the fitted carpet. I should say that I made an effort beforehand packing up books and clearing items in a fairly crowded room so Paul could just move the main items around. The floor now feels solid and the people downstairs are much happier!

  • Kitchen cupboard

    I engaged Paul Mitchell to build a large floor-to-ceiling kitchen cupboard to match my new kitchen units and I am very pleased with the result. Although he obviously could not perfectly match the factory finish of the kitchen units he got as close as possible and the cupboard is exactly as I wanted. He delivered on time and worked tirelessly and tidily to install and finish. He was a pleasure to have around - cheerful and helpful. His price was fair and competitive. I will certainly use him again and will recommend to my friends.

    Paul did a brilliant job rebuilding a sitting room cabinet for me. He was absolutely meticulous and the cabinet looks perfect. He also, very kindly and without me asking, put my TV and internet etc back on top when he finished and tidied up all the wires underneath the cabinet so it looks far tidier than it ever did before. He was also very punctual which is always welcome. I would happily recommend Paul's very high quality work to everyone.

  • New door posts and cupboard

    Paul (and Jay) did a good job and finished on time. We are particularly pleased with the trellis in the garden and the new cupboard in the utility room. They both worked very hard and were courteous. I would recommend them.

  • Glass shower door installation & wallpapering

    Paul arrived promptly and was professional and friendly throughout the job, explaining what he was doing and why throughout the day to keep me informed.

Pleased with the work and would definitely recommend Paul and use him again if needs be.

  • Plasterer/painter needed to cover cracks in flat

  • Bathroom Work

    Paul was able to start the job at short notice and did a good job. He was punctual and polite. Thanks again Paul!

  • Fencing repairs following storm damage

    Paul was very quick to respond to my fencing repair/replacement and his quote was reasonable so we chose to go with him. Unfortunately Paul took the fence down before picking up replacement panels, only to find there was a panel shortage so he could not complete the job that day, leaving us without a fence. Paul did then go out of his way to rectify the situation, returning the following day with some new panels that he had had to go a long way to find. Although they were not the panels I had originally asked for the resulting job was fine. So in summary, if it is an organised professional outfit you are after I would not choose Paul, but it is a reasonably priced handy-man you are after, who is flexible and keen to do a good job then choose Paul.

    Paul Mitchell's reply:

    Usually fencing is removed in order to determine how much is to be replaced and what is salvageable. There has never been a shortage of fencing in all the years that we have been installing them. Any timber supplier will say the same. Unfortunately this was the case here. We are a professional outfit and have many customer comments to prove this. As you can see we tried our very best to please the customer, offering to drive to Luton if the situation required it. The customer's husband was kind enough to give us a £50 tip for all our efforts.

  • Garden fence

    Paul was contracted to do a number of jobs including fencing, door fitting , some electrical and plumbing work. He subcontracted the brick and plastering work to a hard working Bob, his work was excellent. The remainder of the work was carried out by Paul and his work mate. It was rushed and not carried out to a satisfactory standard. The "repair" to guttering has made the problem worse. I e-mailed Paul with my concerns. Apart from an initial response when he indicated he would put things right, I have not heard from him since despite a chaser. As well as the jobs being done to an unsatisfactory standard, Paul and his mate NEVER worked a full day which meant that the time they were there was considerably longer. It was obvious to me that they were also carrying out jobs elsewhere and therefore rushed the jobs that were being carried out at my home. I am extremely disappointed with the jobs carried out by Paul and would certainly not recommend him especially given his lack of response to my written concerns. In particular he has failed to provide a certificate for electrical work carried out which I understand is a requirement. I paid Paul in full on completion of the jobs - frankly I couldn't wait to get him out of my home. Given the amount of positive reviews he had I am astonished that the work he carried out was so sloppy and that he lacked the courtesy to respond to my concerns when I raised them directly with him. I am still chasing the Certificate!!

    Paul Mitchell's reply:

    We at Kingswood are very disappointed in this feedback report. One would not like to criticize the customer and in this case, not everything has been explained including the numerous extra works that the customer asked to be done extending the job which did back into another job. The work was carried as per instructions at a reduced fee. No certificate was required for the lighting fitting.
    Our team were polite to this customer at all times.

  • Replace a 60' back garden fence

    This fencing job was completed to time and was very well carried out. They also repaired some storm damage to a canopy on my patio. Paul and his colleague were very efficient and friendly, despite having to work in the most atrocious conditions of rain, mud and groundwater. Their charges were very reasonable and I would recommend them to anyone.

  • storage cupboard/window seat

    Paul was friendly and professional and completed the job quickly and to a high standard, well within the time quoted. I'm really pleased with the result. Highly recommend.

  • Take down ceiling

    Paul and his son worked very hard, were conscientious and considerate. Pricing was fair. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Paul again.

  • Front fence supports broken and need to be replaced

    Thanks a lot!. Very efficient and stayed on to get the fence totally straight and level. Highly recommended.

  • sink stopper fix + washing mashine waste tube fix

    Paul was very pleasant to deal with and carried out the work quickly and efficiently. Our tennants, who dealt directly with Paul, also said it was a good experience and that it was nice to interact with a tradesman who knew what he was talking about. We would recommend Paul and would be happy to hire him in the future.

  • Cupboard door and bathroom shower door

    I hired Kingswood Property Management to fix a cupboard drawer and a shower door. They responded quickly and did the job to a good standard. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

  • Tiling shower

    Paul failed to include materials in his quote. He turned up an hour late and had to leave three times during the day to pick up materials we felt he could have brought with him. Although the job is done, we felt is was not as easy an experience as it could have been.

    Paul Mitchell's reply:

    It is with great sadness that we should have one of our customers dissatisfied. We would always advise a customer whether the price included materials or not. Unfortunately as this quote was made verbally there has been some confusion over what was agreed. We will in future ensure all verbal quotes are backed up with either a text or email.
    Ordinarily Paul would have arrived with the correct equipment and materials but there was some confusion over which job he was due to attend that day. We would like to apologize to Iona Silverman for the uneasy experience and would offer her a discount for any future works as a way of compensation.

  • Paint 2 rooms and wallpaper 1 wall in each required

    Paul turned up before 8am on the first day and was very accommodating with other little handyman type things as well as taking on an extra room and some tiling - and still finished the job on schedule (with the exception of putting the bathroom cabinet back on the wall because it hadn't dried enough but promises to be back this week to do it) Paul and his colleague John did everything promised so far and have no hesitation recommending Paul's Kingswood Decorators or hiring him again.

    Paul did a great job, and all the builders were very friendly and good value for money.

    We hired Paul to paint our three bedroom victorian house. He did a great job, finished in time and took on a lot of other handy jobs around the house. He also put up wallpaper in one of the bedrooms - looks great. He was also able to recommend other people for specialised jobs (such as carpenter for some build in shelves in our living room). We will be hiring him again to put up wallpaper in our kitchen.

  • Lay engineered flooring in 3 rooms, corridor & stairs

    Kingswood Property Management were excellent. Matt fitted our engineered walnut flooring for our new home. He provided a great service: not only was the flooring fitted to an excellent standard, Matt did the job with great humour and enthusiasm.
    There was also a great deal of commitment to finishing the job, when Matt came back on a Saturday to make sure everything was completely finished.
    Our flooring looked brilliant so needless to say, when it came to choose someone to fit the carpeting on our stairs, there was only one person to ask!

    We would definitely use Kingswood management again!

  • Render and paint front mid terrace house

  • To assemble a new bbq and fix two handles +misc

  • Fixing a cupboard door, window blinds and a shelf

    Paul agreed a start date and then didn't turn up that day.
    Then due to an accident he couldn't come saturday (fair enough) so I called him and he said he would find a replacement and get back to me. Paul never got back in touch.
    I remembered that one of his colleagues had called me earlier in the week so I got in touch with him instead and he said he would come around. He did come around (an hour late), did some of the work and said he would be back at 10am the next morning to do all of the work, in the end nothing was fixed and we got someone else instead. Terrible experience.

    Paul Mitchell's reply:

    The Customer hired an employee who we had to dismiss through dishonesty without our knowledge. They would not allow us to rectify the problem. We did not get paid for this job, neither did the person they used. We cannot be blamed for their mistake.

  • A few hours job for a handman.

    Paul sent someone from his team to do the job. It costed slightly more than it was originally said because there was slightly more to be done (one more heavy mirror to put on the wall). However, the job was done well (put some blinds up, TV brackets on the wall and mirrors up) and I was pleased with the result.

  • awesome handyman for alterations and refinishing work

    One of Paul's guys came at short notice and did a great job on various handyman tasks, worked diligently and happily did what we requested.

  • plaster room

    Paul was helpful, friendly.
    His team have done an amazing job. I would recommend anyone to use him.

  • Shower Room Tiling

    Paul Mitchell provided the best quote out of the three quotes I received. He was also available to start quite quickly. His team completed the work to a very good standard and even worked an extra day to get the job completed neatly and cleanly. He was also kind enough to negotiate on the price which also helped me. I would not hesitate using Paul's team again should the need arise - a thorough professional.

  • Strip/paint ceiling, restore kitchen countertop

  • Gutter needs cleaning.

  • To fit Polyflor planks to cover 40m2

  • Urgent - Remedial work needed -shelving and painting

    I previously hired another handyman from Mybuilder.com to do a number of small jobs which were done well. I therefore asked the same handman to put up some simple mdf shelving and paint them. Unfortunately, the trader (Yaas -Yaasiin Cassim) did an incredibly bad job. As I was in a rush to have the works done, I posted another job and luckily Paul was able to come at very short notice. He was friendly and courteous throughout and could immediately see that my previous handman had done a truly awful job. Paul worked hard to remove all shelving, sand them down thoroughly and repaint them all carefully so that they are now in great condition. The job took longer than expected but Paul soldiered on until it was all done to a very high standard.

    He has certainly restored my faith in traders and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

  • Tiling & ceiling skimming/PLASTERING to cover artex

    Leroy gave sound advice over the phone before we even booked him. When he came to look at the job, he advised us further that we could do some of the work ourselves to save some money. I've never met someone in the trade so honest!! What was left wasn't a big job but he took it on and the price was reasonable for what he did (over 2 days) - great plastering job around our windows. Thanks Leroy!!

  • paint kitchen cupboards

    wow! I have never been more pleased with any job in my house than this one. For £240 I had a transformed kitchen! Old dark pine cupboards now modern white and grey kitchen that looks brand new!
