Rang Paul after a having an extension built and the builder making an error leaving the floor 90mm too low. Paul said he was busy for 2 weeks but would ring back in a fortnight. 2 weeks to the day he rang me back and said how about Thursday. I was delighted as so many tradesmen make these sort of promises and you never hear from them.

I would definitely recommend this firm and would not hesitate to use them again. – William
