• 4 bedroom house redecoration

    I saw Tommy on site to assess the job--he was very critical of some of the plastering work which we jointly discussed with the professional plasterer I had employed in order to improve certain walls. After a few days of discussing the job and agreeing a price--Tommy was reluctant to agree a maximum price--he agreed to start 2 weeks later. The day before he wrote saying he'd overheard me speaking to the plasterer who had been working hard for six weeks and whom I had got to know-- and was unhappy with what I'd said. Can't recall but knew it wasn't anything bad or rude. I wrote apologising and said I just wanted to keep all tradesmen harmonious on the job. Tommy then said he'd start next day--I advised my other tradesmen to expect him but he never showed up ! This has set my completion dates back considerably now until I re advertise the job and go through the whole process again.
    I can't comment about Tommy's work as he didn't show up to start.
    I would caution anyone wishing to employ him to be extremely careful and certainly make sure you have everything agreed in writing in advance.

    VERY unprofessional approach to leave me in the lurch

    scotia 's reply:

    Mr Billy Stewart is a Walter Mittie character who tells more lies than Pinocchio and tells more stories than jackanory , he should have a warning sign on him for all good tradesman to steer clear.
    He also doesn't like f***ing spoilt Scottish workers (his words)

    He also knew exactly what he said and I heard but he did apologies blaming the stress he was under , I knew then that I should have just forgot about the job but decided to proceed as I was short with work due to cancelations.

    I couldn't supply a final fixed quote just an estimate as there was too much variables , for example the very poor state of plastering.

    While on the way to his job this morning he called me and said that if I couldn't guarantee that the job wouldn't go over £3000 he would try find someone else and he didn't want me to proceed , I couldn't guarantee him so i turned around and headed home.
    He knew I was short off work and tried to take advantage of my misfortune.

    Mybuilder , please ban this man before he tries his underhand tactics with another good tradesman.

  • Plastering 3 walls

  • Full house redecoration - inside & out

    Tommy has been fantastic - full house redecoration, done to a great standard, all walls and woodwork painted plus quite a lot of filling/replastering bits & pieces and repairs to ripped wallpaper etc, also new vent put in, able to fit new light fittings for us too - much appreciated!

  • Dampness in sandstone wall

    Assessed the problem and treated part of the wall. Good job

  • Damp proofing

    Unfortunately my property had a rising damp issue. I had issues with local trades people either not returning my phone calls or coming out measuring and then not proving a quote. So decided to use this website. I am glad I did, as the work that has been carried out is top class.
    Every day they were on time despite being based quite a distance away. They done their best to keep mess to a minimum, and were very organised. Always keeping me informed of what they were doing really kept me at ease.
    My property was built in the 1880s and has some of the original features which I was a bit worried about but everything was handled with care and was put back exactly like it was.
    I felt very comfortable leaving them to get on with it while I went to work.
    I would definitely recommend Tommy and use his services again. Very competitive price and in general just good honest tradesmen which are hard to find these days! Thanks a lot.

  • Damp patches in ground floor rooms

    Tommy provided me with a cost for resolving rising damp in 2 rooms. It was very competitive and I felt confident that he would do a good job for me. He and his co-worker were extremely punctual, professional and left the property in a very clean condition and all rubbish was removed. They actually did more work than was quoted for. I was delighted with the speedy completion of the work and would not hesitate to engage Tommy and his team to do further work.

    I cannot speak highly enough of this company. Arrived on time, worked tirelessly on a very demanding job and completed on time. Scotia will be my first choice for any future work. Absolutely first class workmanship and excellent value. My lounge is transformed. Thank you.

  • Damp proofing

    I have an old stone built cottage in North Northumberland which has rising and penetrative damp. Tommy visited the property and recommended applying 'StormDry' on the outer wall. Tommy and his colleague carried out the work to cover the whole of the two story cottage at an arranged date.

    I would definitely recommend Tommy, he was professional, trustworthy and friendly as well.

  • Repair of a structural wall

  • Woodworm treatment and damp in the loft

    We needed woodworm treatment done on a house we were selling. Tommy was first to respond to our ad and we we very happy to offer him the job. Communication was fantastic and responses almost instantaneous. The job was carried out to our satisfaction and we have just received our 25 year insurance backed guarantee. Highly recommended. Many thanks mate.

  • Quote for damp problem

    I was basically looking for a 2nd opinion about a damp problem; Tommy at Scotia replied very quickly to my initial request and although he ended up not doing the work, as he said that the quote I was given was a good one and he doubted very much if I'd get it any cheaper, I very much appreciated his honesty! I will certainly use him again in the future if the need arises.

  • Plaster walls in four rooms

  • Underfloor ventilation

    Tommy came out promptly to view the property. He understood very quickly my concern with the sub-floor ventilation. He quickly reassured me that I had nothing to worry about and advised that I get in touch with him if any problems arose.

  • Damp and mould on walls

    Tommy came out to see me the same day I contacted him and at the time agreed. Tommy is a very knowledgable friendly man who gave me lots of advice. The damp I have is caused by condensation and ventilation which didn’t require Tommy’s expertise to fix. Although Tommy wasn’t required to fix this he contacted me and offered me a dehumidifier for a couple of weeks which he delivered and set up for me. Tommy has gone way beyond what I could have expected considering he isn’t benefiting in any way so I would highly recommend him to everyone. Nice to meet someone who really cares and takes pride in his profession.

  • Damp proofing,painting and decorating

    Tommy came and tested for damp in my newly purchased home in Angus and to quote for painting some rooms.
    He came equipped not only with his own damp meter but also had one for me to do my own check as we walked around. He explained what the meter readings meant, and as it turned out the findings showed there was no damp.
    I initially booked him to do the painting work for 4 weeks time
    ( the earliest he would be available due to other work he was already committed to. ) On reflection later I decided I would have to get the painting done sooner, however I hope to book him to do other work for me early next year.
    Meantime based on the contact I had with Tommy I can testify to his professionalism, good communication, and turning up at the agreed time.

  • Roof Painting

  • Cottage painted - several rooms

  • Local Charity need help with Taping,Plasterin,Painting

    Tommy saved our lives! We are a Scottish Charity for Autism and we were in the process of opening our centre in Cowdenbeath. Suddenly before Christmas all volunteer work stopped. Our families couldn't have their Christmas party and were devastated to say the least. Along comes Tommy and Eddie who gave up their precious time and lost money as their self employed. They answered our cry for help and without them we wouldn't be opening on February 27th. I want to Thank them from the bottom of my heart and I know our families will be so grateful for their fantastic efforts. They worked so hard and couldn't do enough for us. Diamonds the pair of them. I would highly recommend these amazing guys who gave up their time to help autistic children by getting their centre ready for opening.
    Many many thanks

  • Removal of graffiti and window repairs

    Tommy from Scotia was very prompt to quote for the job that I posted. The work was completed in good time and as agreed. I would happily recommend Scotia.

  • Cleared and ready...

    What a find Tommy was ! He appeared on time to give a comprehenbsive quote for the damp-proof work, and included items such as removing radiators and redecorating afterwards in his price. He turned up when he said he would, the job took as long as he said it would, and he took away the spoils afterwards - really impressive..
    I now have a home that looks as if nothing's been done to it - but I've got the photos and the insurance-backed certificate as proof that it was a job well done.
    Very very impressed, and would definitely use him again..

  • Handyman needed in Oban Scotland

  • Damp Proofing

    Tommy did a great job on our damp proofing at a very competitive price.He was extremely helpful and gave great advice throughout the work.

This is within a busy Edinburgh restaurant and all the time they worked closely with us to ensure that there was as little disruption as possible and we were able to keep the restaurant open virtually unaffected. Very high level of workmanship and good value.

  • Dry Rot under living room floor!

    From start to finish Tommy carried out a professional and first class job. Cannot recommend Tommy highly enough. It is apparent that he takes a great deal of pride in his work.

    Would happily recommend him for similar work.

  • Potential House Renovation

    I contacted Tommy with regards to a potential house renovation. I had what I thought was an unrealistic budget due to the amount of work required to the property. Tommy came back with a breakdown of the costs and it could have been completed well within my budget of which I was very surprised. Unfortunately I missed out on the property as it went under offer, but I am still on the look out for similar. I would most certainly contact Tommy again to carry out another potential renovation.

    He turned what was a damp unwelcoming living room into a really nice place to be.

His quote which he kept to was extremely reasonable and the work that was carried out by he and his team was excellent. His willingness to help me with extras that arose throughout the job never faltered. All that remains is to say thank you so much.

    A survey was promptly done and a quote promptly produced.
    The work (stripping plaster, injecting damp course, adding a plastic membrane, replastering) was also done promptly, tidily, to a good standard and to budget. The work came with a 30 year guarantee from Westminster Guarantee Protection (Trustees) Ltd. (as far as I can tell, this is good insurance, but it obviously has not been tested yet).
    I can recommend Tommy as hardworking, trustworthy and straightforward to deal with, and I intend to use him again in the near future.

    Found Tommy acted in a professional manner during his initial visit explaining what work was required and how it would be done. The job started on time and completed to a high standard and all refuse removed from the site.

    Work done to our property was exactly as described. Really good communication throughout. Would recommend or use again.

  • need walls plastered and floor screeded

    Hi Tommy, thank you so much for the work you carried out in my kitchen today. I can't believe how good the walls and floor look. Nor can I believe how clean and tidy you left the place. I was at the end of my tether after another plasterer had left my kitchen in a huge mess. I also had a very uneven floor where a cupboard had been knocked down. You sorted it all for me and now it looks great. I will keep your contact details and highly recommend you to others. And the price was great. Thanks again.

  • fix/ resolve damp problem

    This is the second time I have used Scotia/Tommy. I made a big mistake when booking him for a start date, I booked him a whole month late an expensive mistake when prepping a property ready to go on the market.I explained my mistake and he did everything he could to start the job 3 weeks earlier than i initially asked. There was a bad damp/condensation problem which he has put fully right and made a great job of.No mess no fuss all done and dusted and now one of Tommys decoraters is putting the room back to good decorative order and has repainted the rest of the house interior with no mess and minimum of fuss. I would definetly use Tommy again and again .Good job for a good price.

The job was carried out without any problems whatsoever, and very professionally. What's more, he saved us a heap of money, that some of the larger companies were trying to charge us for unnecessary procedures which would not have helped our situation.

He saved us thousands through his honesty. The cellar also needed damp proof work carried out which was done to a very high standard. I would strongly recommend Tommy as an excellent specialist.

    Tommy was exceptionally helpful, punctual and clearly understood our type of property well. He made every effort to answer our questions and get to the bottom of the problem, and explained that we will have to wait until cooler/wetter weather to investigate it well/fully. Tommy was a real breathe of fresh air, professional and honest. Thank you!

  • Varnish timber window frames (external) and roofline

    Great tradesman.

    Left an initial quote with detailed explanation of the work required - rather than just a simple price. Made the effort to come out and see the job (unlike some quotes which were basically speculation) and got in touch straight away with the details.

    And despite the attention to detail, all very reasonable.

    Despite waiting 3 or 4 months to act on the quote, the original figure was maintained and carried out in less time than originally expected.

    Absolutely happy with the work and would definitely recommend Tommy to anyone else.

  • Damp proofing quote

    Tommy and his team undertook some damp proofing and painting work for us in July/August 2013. Tommy came out and gave us a really competitive quote and started the work 3 weeks later. We had damp in 4 rooms in our newly purchased flat, and had had a number of contractors provide us with quotes, none of which came close to Tommy's or came with such a long guarantee of works. The damp turned out to be a bit more extensive than originally thought, with a number of patches hiding larger areas of damp. Despite this, Tommy and his team stripped everything they needed to back, found woodworm (which wasn't expected) and took it all in their stride, treating the woodworm at no additional cost.

    I wouldn't hesistate to recommend Tommy and his team, he always kept in touch with progress and always had time to answer the million and one questions my fiace and I fired at him! Thanks for the good work guys!

    Tommy arrived at my property to check for Damp due to a home report query. The expert knowledge of this gentleman was amazing.

He was so kind and also very kindly came back to the propertry to do all the checks again to make sure all the remedial work that was required had been done correctly and used his meter to clarify thisonce the roof issue had been resolved.

  • Painting the whole flat

    Tommy turned up on the day and at the time agreed and managed to quickly sort out the issues with the walls and ceilings in out property (taping, filling and plastering was needed). Then the whole property was painted, including the door frames and the recently installed window frames.

    He was also able to spot the presence of woodworms in the roof beams, which are probably affecting other properties as well (being ours a top-floor flat in a building of >40 apartments), so we will take actions ASAP in order to get rid of the worms and avoid huge expenses/problems in the future.

    I would definitely recommend Scotia, Tommy did a good job, carried it out quikly and at a reasonable price.

    Thanks again.

  • Help to complete Home Report item

    I stumbled upon this site by chance so posted the details of the work I required in a kind of half hearted manner. To be honest I was quite surprised when I received response within a day or two. Following the response we exchanged an email or two then discussed the details over a telephone call. Tommy visited my property to provide an estimate and I found him very open, honest and very informed in his field. He talked me through the work he'd carry out thoroughly and made a few suggestions on how I could dry out dampness, The quote was the best I was quoted and the work was carried out both, as described and on time. I'll be using him again.

    A Happy customer
