Good skills and service

Had a good experience with Camel Glass. I wanted to get some new windows put in my roof, but had to work with non-standard sized frames (the house is in a conservation area, and the roof timbers are fixed, so the frames and style can't change). I contacted lots of glaziers, roofers, and roof window manufacturers but they couldn't work with the non-standard sizes.

In the end I found Camel. The sales rep visited, and looked for a solution back in the office. He advised that they could produce non-standard glass size, and said how their work would fit in with a builder's work, and what I should ask for from the builder. They solved a problem that had taken weeks of my time until then. Very happy with the skills and service provided.

Alfords Carpets & Flooring

Good service and product

Alfords fitted carpets on the stairs and laminate in two bedrooms. I had an idea for what I wanted (hard wearing, neutral colours), but didn't know an exact spec, and accepted their recommendations. The carpets and laminates look pleasant and can be washed easily, so the advice was good. The fitting was quick. The main fitting was done in a day. They came back to fit the scotias later, which was fine. Overall, happy with the service and product.

Pleased with chimney cast and fireplace removal
5
Just Chimneys put a cast around our chimney to stabilise it, and removed an old fireplace surround for a gas / wood fire. They plastered over the hole, tidied the wall, and repaired the floor.

The response and service were quick. I contacted them midweek, and Bruce from JC visited for a survey on Saturday morning. A two-person team started on the next Tuesday, and returned twice more.

The chimney and plastered wall look fine. Because the floor was repaired as well, we didn't have to get another worker in.

The cost was reasonable for the time spent and work done.

The JC team were both polite and friendly.

M.P Roofing

Efficient, low stress, and good value

MP Roofing did the following work:
Our roof was replaced, the attic was cleared and lagged, asbestos was removed, the gutter and drainpipe were replaced, and a chimney was repaired. I didn't know the company or owner before the work.

The experience was low-stress:
The owner advised on the planning application, and did most of the other arrangements. He texted updates during planning and the roofing. He turned up for most meetings at exactly the set time. He dealt with issues with little fuss. He was friendly and knowledgeable.

The outcome of the work:
The draughts have stopped. It is noticeably warmer inside. The roof looks good. There are no visible holes. The asbestos has gone.

The price:
Materials, two weeks work for the builder, and all subcontracting came to the price of a fairly good kitchen installation.

As a tip:
They do skylight windows too.
