John did an excellent job of tiling my newly installed kitchen. He came as promised, did a very good job, cleared up afterwards and finished on time. I would recommend his services without hesitation.

I needed two bathroom ceilings and door frames painted so I called Tom. He did a great job but after the paint had dried it needed another coat. Tom came round and fixed the problem with zero hassle, to an excellent standard. Highly recommended.

We are refitting the kitchen and as part of that we wanted to install a door from the kitchen to the garage and add some shelving. I've used Chris Hadwin before so had no hesitation in using him again. He has done an excellent job knocking through the wall, fitting the fire door to the garage, hanging a second door and putting up shelving in the garage. He is keenly aware of costs and tries to minimise these for his customers - an example of this was advising me that a mini skip to remove and dispose of the rubbish would be £100 (at cost) - however I could arrange removal with the local council from just £15. I wanted Oak doors which Chris didn't supply but he collected them at no additional charge from the supplier - saving me delivery costs. He also reminded me that his original quote had included the cost of him supplying a door and removed that cost from my bill. Chris is honest, reliable and respects your home making sure he makes as little mess as possible and cleaning up every evening. Great job from a great local tradesman.

Called Tom about a leaking mixer tap and an old leaking bath tap. He came exactly at the time he said he would. He fixed both at an excellent price. A pleasant gentleman to do business with.

Excellent builder - gave good written estimate at a very good price and completed work without any problem - arrived on time when he said he would and left work area in a clean and tidy state. He replaced a rear garage door and window.

I had been having some problems with drainage to my property, having been flooded during the heavy storms of 28th June 2012 and only been back into my property after almost a year waiting for the repairs to be completed. I had called Chris to arrange a visit to discuss new drainage to my property and also ask for his advice on any options I had to try to avoid the catastrophe of my property flooding again. He called at just the right moment when the latest heavy rain storm passed and my property was almost at the point of flooding again. He quickly diagnosed where the problem was and set about trying to resolve the situation there and then, even though he did not have the correct equipment and was only there to give me a quote for work. The problem was down to a blocked drain which was supposed to have been cleared and checked out by a household name in that field only 6 weeks before. Chris waited at the site until I had contacted the drain cleaning company and stayed until they arrived on site to do the work they had originally been contracted to do. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Chris and his company for their professional approach to the way they do things, hopefully I will be able to hire Chris to sort out my drainage problems for the long term when I have the plans for what needs to be done.

I have had consistent problems with a surface water drain and have over a 20 year period used a drain clearance service to rectify the fault but it kept reoccurring and last week they were unable to fix the problem anddiagnosed a fractured or collapsed pipe. I contacted Chris who had done work at my home before to see if he could recommend anyone who specialised in this kind of fault. He made an appointment for 8/7/2013 and arrived promptly at 9:00. The fault eventually was traced as cement which had significantly reduced the bore of the pipe when the house was originally built - hence the reoccurring blockages. To rectify it Chris and his colleague lifted the block paving and dug down to expose about 7 feet of piping. They eventually replaced about a 5ft stretch of piping, relaid the foundations and the block paving - they even rectified a dip which had developed in the block paving. The 2 men were there over 6 hours and cleared up after themselves. They used £60 of materials and the entire bill was just £200! I contrast this with the £70 I spent for an hour call out each time I use a drain clearing service. I thoroughly recommend Chris for all types of building work. He's clean and tidy, reliable and I know he will only recommend spending money if he genuinely thinks it is necessary.

Ernie is a very helpful and reliable handyman who is able to offer advice and good quality reliable labour without worrying about hidden expenses. He was up-front with a quote and our skirting boards and radiators are working a treat and look good too! We will certainly be using him again in the near future!

On short notice Stuart offered to paint our new house at pensioners' rate. The walls were nicotine stained and dirty. He kept us informed yet allowed us to make decisions. He finished well before our moving deadline. He is cheerful and professional. We will call him when we require further work done.

Andrew is a very conscientious worker. He has done several jobs but I was particularly impressed by the job he did in erecting a long fence and gate at my house.
