Professional and considerate

I own and rent a tenement flat in Glasgow and was dismayed to find that i had a dry rot problem. The property factors had contracted Richardson and Starling to carry out the remedial works which were very extensive and after having several experiences with other contractors previously, i had some poor service and was very worried. I was contacted by one of the girls from the office (who's name escapes me), to arrange. She explained the task to me and told me how long the process would take. I had some questions that she was unable to answer, however she explained that she would get the contract manager Mark to call which he did and answered my concerns. They started and finished the job when they said they would and the men who did the job were fantastic.. they even built up good rapport with the neighbours and were very efficient workers. This company understand that they are working in peoples homes and it is clearly ingrained in the whole process from start to finish.
