slate tiles in kitchen Tiling
Oakwood Home Solutions were fantastic right from the get go. They came around to give me a quote on the work very promptly. They were very patient as they offered me a date to start the work very quickly but I had to delay the work due to other work being done. They were very understanding about this and did not hesitate to rearrange a more convenient date for me. The work they did was terrific. They even picked up the tiles for me from the shop. The tiling of my kitchen floor became a bigger job than expected, for instance, doors needed to be taken off and refitted. They had no problems putting tiles under the white appliances for me when I asked if this could be done. They also tidied up after they had completed their work. I would not hesitate to use Oakwood Home Solutions again and I would recommend them to family, friends and colleagues without hesitation. A very professional outfit.

New ensuite shower room Bathroom Fitting
We are very happy with the new ensuite which Kenny and his team fitted . He took on board our ideas and did not try and sell us any unwanted extras.The workmanship is excellent and Kenny pays great attention to detail. He is diligent about attending to any snagging and while the job took several days longer than planned, mainly down to late arrival of materials, he kept us posted throughout. We have no hesitation in recommending Oakwood Home Solutions.

I am very happy with the quality of Kenny's work. The new en suite which was created was done on budget and I am very pleased with the result. I found Kenny to be reliable, trustworthy and easy to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending him and he will be first person I call for future renovation projects.

Kitchen cabinets to be built and fitted Kitchen Fitting
I not only had a kitchen fitted but had a shower room fitted also. The workmen were with me for over 4 weeks altogether. I could not move out but wished I had. There was a lot of work to be done including plastering, plumbing, electrician and joiner. All the work was done to a good specification and workmenship and I would use Kenny and all the team again as workwise I could not fault them. I was dissappointed in having to clean the kitchen from top to bottom before being able to use it. I am very happy with my new shower room and kitchen. I am very much enjoying using same. Thanks again to all the team.

Kenny was great at organising my flat renovation and most of his quotes for different trades were reasonable. The transformation of the flat is fabulous. Kenny always had solutions to any problems and would suggest an alternative solution. Job was finished to a high standard and Kenny was very easy to communicate with. If I had another job I would not bother getting other quotes I would go direct to Oakwood Home Solutions

Plaster kitchen walls+ceiling, install kitchen Kitchen Fitting
I would have no hesitation in recommending Kenny, and have already done so to friends.
He quoted for a kitchen refit, to plaster the ceiling and walls and install downlighters in the ceiling, along with a couple of other tradesmen from MyBuilder. The quote was competitive and reasonably priced.
He came and discussed the job prior to providing the quote and it became apparent that he was able to undertake a wider refit than initially expected, including suggesting an alternative supplier for our painted oak kitchen (who we went with) and managing the installation of Karndean / Amtico flooring. This allowed us to have the entire kitchen refit managed as one project and we did not need to worry about scheduling additional trades after the initial kitchen refit was completed.
Kenny’s joinery skills were excellent and, despite the kitchen floors and walls running off in all directions, he has fitted the kitchen brilliantly and I’m delighted with the finished result.
I will definitely use Kenny again.

complete bathroom fitting, Bathroom Fitting
I hired Kenny for a complete bathroom fit with new shower etc. I always like to leave it a few weeks before giving feedback to make sure everything is as it should be.
It is, Kenny's work is very good, and he fitted our shower which required new piping and stuff as the old shower was electric. He also manages the electricial and tilers (who were fantastic, Tomas tilers I would highly reccommend). The bathroom not only looks great it works well.
Kenny was not the cheapest quote, but worth it. Only point I would add is Kenny done a couple of other small jobs when he was here and he did charge a little extra for it, as the job was on the more expensive side of the quotes I would have liked to have seen this included in teh job.
Overall excellent workmanship.

Install new kitchen Kitchen Fitting
Kenny has done a lovely job and at a reasonable cost too. It is always a risk hiring an unknown tradesman on the strength of feedback but I was not disappointed. The fitting took a little longer than originally anticipated but this was in the main due to factors that arose due to the age of the property and Kenny kept me updated of the progress and sought my authorisation before carrying out any work not previously discussed. The property was unoccupied and was being prepared to be let. Kenny took hold of the keys, got on with the job and cleaned up afterwards.

Kenny did a good job refitting our bathroom. He removed the old fittings and replaced them with new ones while taking care not to damage the existing wall tiling we wanted to keep. He worked quickly and made sure everything was clean when he left. We are happy with the results and the price asked.

Upgrading existing kitchen Kitchen Fitting
An excellent job, completed without fuss and at a reasonable price. The new worktops and appliances were installed promptly and professionally. The worktops deserve particular praise because, in New Town flats, you rarely encounter a true horizontal or perpendicular. Working with that calls for patience and a great deal of skill. Kenny has both and, in addition, is a pleasure to work with. A truly professional, dependable guy, I would not hesitate to use him again. Highly recommended.

Kenny has just finished laying my laminate flooring and I am absolutely delighted with the job. He was very professional, turned up on time, made a fantanstic job, left the place tidy and was pleasant to deal with. And to top it all, his price was very reasonable! I wouldn't hesitate recommending him to others and will certainly use him again for any joinery work.

construct an ensuite Bathroom Fitting
Found Kenny using this site. After the first meeting I was impressed with his way of looking at different angles and ways of doing things. He doesn’t just work to plan – he can add suggestions and ideas along the way, if you ask, and explains everything clearly, the possibles and the not possibles - with patience! The end result has been brilliant. Better than I ever expected. I have an amazing en-suite in what was a dingy cupboard. Love it! There were challenges along the way – always is with a project like this – but Kenny deals with them and you only hear about it if you ask! He tackled the pocket door I had ordered without a word – only mentioned afterwards that it arrived looking like the world’s biggest Meccano set! It works perfectly and saves so much space. Highly recommend these doors – but get Kenny to fit them! He stuck to budget and talked through any extra costs if you wanted to add bits on – who doesn’t when a project gets under way. The other trades he brought in did their work to a very high standard – and were also very nice people. Everything would have been finished on time if the worst snowfall in decades hadn’t landed on us and deliveries not been held up! But even then, as soon as the deliveries got through, Kenny was here to get it all finished as soon as possible. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kenny to carry out any building work and will happily have him do work for me again in the future.

Kenny and his team installed my ikea kitchen, sorted out plumbing and moved gas pipe.
He was easy to contact and make arrangements with and was always on time. The quality of his work was excellent, hes a very skilled craftsman and he took the time to ensure the finish was to a very high standard - a perfectionist !
The job was finished in the amount of time he told us it would be and he cleaned up at the end of the job. Kenny was very helpful and pleasant from start to finish. He even text a couple of weeks after the job was completed to check we were happy with the kitchen and were not having any problems with it!
I would not hesitate to contact Kenny again and will use his company again. I highly recommend Kenny for any work you need doing!

Hi Alison, I have just spoken to Paul and apperently he gave you a price of £130 for new fan as you wanted a larger one to cover existing holes? He has been waiting for you to get back to him if you want him to get fan. Do you still have his number?

slapping through a masonry wall Carpentry & Joinery
Kenny has done an absolutely fantastic job for us - extending our bathroom & then doing a complete installation of our new bathroom. Kenny's standard of work is top notch, we've had many positive comments on the quality of the bathroom work. He was also highly reliable, and very helpful, offering us advice & ideas.
We've since asked Kenny back to custom make us 5 victorian style doors, box in our boiler & install some shelving. Again another fantastic job.
I highly recommend Kenny without any hesitation.

New Kitchen Worktops Kitchen Fitting
Kenny fitted 2 L-shaped worktops with 2 sinks for me. I hoped the worktop join could be almost invisible and I was delighted with the end result. Kenny was pleasant and helpful from start to end and was easy to make arrangements with. Himself and his apprentice worked a very long day, non stop, doing a few extra things I asked for at the last minute, and even cleared up at the end. Kenny double double checked the plumbing which gave me great confidence and it hasn't leaked a drop. I wouldn't hesitate to contact Kenny again for any further work.

Kenny and Gary were super. Kenny arrived at the time agreed and worked exceptionally hard to make sure that the job was done to a very high standard. There were (as there always is) some difficulties with the installation due to how things had originally been done - and Kenny faced these and handled them professionally.
