Fast response and a job well done.

I used Martin a number of years ago to repair a roof at the back of the house so when I had water dripping from a different roof in October 2019 I knew who to contact. He responded very quickly and after erecting scaffolding he had the roof tiles repaired and watertight. I asked him to check the flat roof of the attic dormer as there were a couple of damp patches on the ceiling and after investigation we agreed that it needed replacing. The scaffolding was left in place.
Due to my holidays and Christmas it was 16 January before his team could start work. Martin and two of his workers were here every day for 2 weeks, working extremely hard in freezing and windy conditions. They also repaired the ceiling inside the house from the previous water damage.
Overall, I am very happy with the quality of work from Martin and his team and would definitely recommend them to others.

Job well done

Martin and his team have just completed a first class bathroom renovation for me. Martin started work on the agreed date and his 'team' turned up every day until the work was complete. The team included the other trades -electricians and plumbers which Martin organised as and when necessary so the work was completed in a timely manner and to a high standard. Very pleased.

Top job!

Martin and his team did a great job with our kitchen, after a pipe leaked and damaged the flooring. They installed the new flooring and re-plastered the walls where the water had caused damage. We had a couple of issues with our new flooring, which was faulty from the supplier, but Martin and his team sorted this out no problem, and the job was done to a very high standard. They are polite, friendly and very tidy workers. The place looked spotless after they finished. Can only recommend.
