  • Supporting removed chimney in living room

    Paul is an excellent builder and I am very happy with him and his work.
    Paul has a very hardworking ethic, is clean and did all the jobs required and more.
    Was happy to help me with other issues around the house and I would gladly have Paul back to mine anytime completing more work.

  • Kitchen refurb

    He was hired to remove a support wall and install steel and to remove units from this wall and refitting them elsewhere. He told me it would take 2 possibly 21/2 days but took 4. He said verbally he would make good the wall, ceiling and floor. Walls not touched at all and left with bare bricks. Floor is fine. Ceiling was boarded and left not plastered. He said he hadn’t priced for a plasterer as not sure of what damage to walls would be but I assumed wrongly he would at least be plastering the joist section but hasn’t. and assumed the walls would have been boarded but haven’t. To be honest I was happy not to ask him to get the plastering sorted and I’m getting trades in to complete the work. The floor unit has not been fitted very well at all and as the walls have not been boarded and plastered I have not been able to refit the wall unit Then he sent my bill on Thursday pm. I work very long days and don’t have access to my phone. Due to the mess of my kitchen I have had to move out with my dogs so didn’t get to see the room until late Friday evening after work. In the meantime he phoned Thursday evening and Friday morning and then my friend who was there to let other trades in told me he came to my home Friday morning asking for payment to be made asap. I would not recommend this builder and have been left with an unfinished kitchen

  • Create fire door access to garage

    Paul did an excellent job - he was very prompt with his quote and quick to arrange a date for the job to be done . Paul and his small team carried out the work to a high standard and made sure they cleared everything up afterwards. They were helpful with advice about the job. I would definitely recommend him would hire him again for future work
