Hello my name's Bob, please don't be put off by the lack of feedback, this is my first attempt at putting myself on the internet. All my work usually comes from word of mouth but I suppose I need to move with the times. I have over 35 years experience in the Building industry. My Son with 15 years experience works with me. All building work undertaken. Specializing in Plastering work and associated fields. Fully Insured. I will normally try to ring you immediately if shortlisted. Thanks.

I've worked in all of the above fields over the years on many prestigious jobs, most notably my work with the BBC being shown on television regularly when the programmes Changing rooms, Home front and Home front in the garden came to prominence in the 1990's
I've also worked on a lot of listed buildings including some very old churches throughout Essex.
A more recent high profile job was the complete tanking and refurbishment of the basement swimming pool area of the Saudi owned Falcon House, Bishops Avenue N2 0BA,
it can be viewed on Google.
Having said all this my main source of work comes from working in normal everyday homes for people who recommend by word of mouth.
