We are very pleased with the work undertaken by Dale and his work colleague, primarily to create level access to the back of the house and incorporate a patio area. Dale has an easy going "can do" approach which enabled us to make some alterations to the plans as we went along. He came recommended to us as a "trusted contractor" by a well-established local charity which supports and advises older and disabled homeowners in respect of necessary building adaptions and repairs. We are happy to recommend Dale and hope to use him again for a more substantial building project later in the year.

A gale force wind coming straight up the Bristol Channel lifted the roof of my car port; it looked like a frozen version of "Concorde" taking off. Mr. Foxall replaced the posts and cemented them into the ground and put a new roof of polycarbonate sheets on top and fixed them securely. He then treated the posts with two coats of weatherproof stain. The whole job was done very carefully and without fuss and I now have a good carport which is fit for purpose. He is a good, cheerful worker who gets on with the job - even in the Arctic type of weather which we had during March 2013.

I contacted this company by telephone after reading a review in Which Local, following a leak around the base of a chimney in a bungalow, and they contacted me to arrange an estimate within 2 days and even apologised for being slow in returning my call. This was in marked contrast to other firms I contacted, some of whom never got back to me and others who failed to turn up even after promising to 3 or 4 times. He showed me what the problem was with the chimney and flashing, and other minor jobs that he advised could be done at the same time around the chimney, but at no point was there any pressure to have these carried out. He sent me the estimate that evening via email and arranged to do the work 1 month later.
When he came to do the work he turned up on time, started work straight away, and had the job finished within half a day, only stopping for a couple of refreshment breaks which I provided for him and his colleague, and tidied up when they had finished. He was thoroughly professional and I would have no hesitation in using them again for any roofing problems I might have in the future.

Using Which? Local I found Tim Draisey and used his services to remedy a serious roof problem.
I found him to be honest and professional in his dealings and the work he carried out was first class and timely. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending him.

Matthew recently fitted an internal wooden door to my kitchen. His work was first rate; quick, accurate and reasonable priced. He even fixed a problem with my front door while he was here, at no extra cost. I would certainly recommend him and plan to use him again in the future.

Matthew has been very helpful in helping us to install a balustrade and hanging three interior doors. He is punctual and friendly, and work very hard and efficiently. Since my property is over 70 years old, door hanging is no simple task as door frames have distorted over the years. Matthew took all the trouble to make the doors tailored for the door frame at a reasonable cost, meanwhile giving us some good DIY advice and teaching us some carpenting skills! his company provides a range of other services as well. Highly recommended!

Excellent work, reliable and competitive. I hired Paul after seeing the great standard of his work in restoring the facade of Georgian townhouse in Clifton. I then hired him to install new air bricks around my Victorian property (no mean feat with 9 foot deep walls in some places) and to restore an old brick wall to it's former glory. First class work, he brought a professional team with him and worked in the sleet and rain. Will be hiring him again for all further works.

We required a steel joist to be fitted in our kitchen with minimal impact on existing layout and units. They did an excellent and professional job to time and budget. You would not now know that the beam is there.

Intelligent, business like, efficient, clean, come when they say they will. All their workmen are skilled Best of all, they never moan; problems are seen as challenges to be overcome, not an opportunity to moan and rack up the price. They are not the cheapest but you get what you pay for.
