I got some shelving put in my hallway. I am very happy with the quality of the work and felt the price was very reasonable.

The company is very professional and reliable and the guys are helpful as well as bring clean and tidy workers.

I would recommend this company if you are looking for a joiner.

He was very helpful in the moving of a kitchen, reconfiguring existing cabinets and modifying. He was able to bring in additional trades to complete the job. He was able to change plans when the job required it especially working in an old property that required constant fixes and even fixed bodged jobs from previous contractors.

George carried out a range of jobs from installing cupboard interiors to constructing solid book shelves. He and his son did a great job and I’m very happy with the results which make a huge difference to my house.

George is very helpful and will work with your shift patterns. This is our second time of having George do work for us. Very professional and doesn't leave any mess once finished. We will always recommend him for any joinery jobs you have.

Three small joinery jobs. Very fiddly. George completed all tasks to my complete satisfaction. A clean and tidy worker. All debris removed by him.

Will certainly use again.

Great job done by George and son. My ideas for a fitted wardrobe started out on the back of envelope but George interpreted them perfectly and found ideal solutions for the awkward bits. I am more than delighted with the finished result – two gold stars for the two Georges.

George built a chimney breast for us to fit a fireplace and hung a door. He and his son were a pleasure to deal with, did a first class job and left the house tidier than they found it! All for a fair price. Very impressed and would recommend

Boxing in of hot water down pipes for new gas central heating system and new wooden slatted shelves made and fitted into former hot water tank cupboard.
Job well executed with good finish to walls ready for painting. Shelves fit perfectly and make good storage for what was formerly a wasted space. Would defintely use this joiner again and/or recommend to anyone who asks.

George restored a room which had been badly flood-damaged. This involved laying down a new concrete base, DPC and wooden floor, stripping back and replacing the plasterboard on the walls and associated works. He also installed the laminate flooring in a large kitchen/dining area.

He provided an excellent professional service, and I would have no hesitation in using him again or recommending him.

Dealing with roof leak, involving replacement of timber and felt, plus arranging other trades - roofer and plasterer. All this was done promptly, in particular tackling the initial leak. A very tidy job.
