George was excellent, he quickly assessed the problems with my bathrooms and the leaks which had damaged the woodwork, and provided an excellent service throughout. He was tidy, prompt, explained the issues and completed the work in a timely fashion, keeping me updated at all times. I can highly recommend George for his workmanship and professionalism and would not hesitate to recommend him and would definitely employ his services again in the future.

George initially fitted some internal doors when others didn't want to take on a small job. His workmanship and attention to detail and value for money were first class so we had no hesitation in engaging his services to install a new kitchen shortly afterwards. What a job he made. Absolutely delighted and would definitely recommend.

George fitted a new kitchen. His work and attention to detail were excellent. His advice was first class and very much appreciated.
George carried out the work within the agreed time and was always punctual and I felt comfortable in giving George access to the house when I was at work. I always came back to a very clean and tidy kitchen throughout the whole process. I would thoroughly recommend George for any joinery work and would certainly call on his services again in the future.

George supplied and fitted two living room doors to a high standard. He also boxes in some pipes in the bathroom which was quite tricky due to the space however he did so with great attention to detail...good quality tradesmen are often hard to find. George was friendly hard working and an experienced joiner who I will be using in the future.

George did an excellent job replacing rotted fence posts and re-hanging a gate.

Despite having some extremely obstinate old concrete to dig out, he was always cheerful and courteous and did an excellent job in the time promised.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend George.

Replaced kitchen work surfaces (solid wood surface was what we fitted, which was a bigger job than anticipated). We were very pleased indeed with the finished result.

I was very pleased with all the work carried out. He was easy to deal with and flexible. He popped back one night to fix a small problem (not his making!).

We have booked him to come back soon to do some more work for us.

Remove old kitchen including wall tiles then fit new kitchen, including all new units. Re-position appliances, replace gas with induction hob. Included sorting all plumbing, electrical and plastering work carried out by sub-contractors organised by George.

We have used George for all our joinery work for over 15 years. He is very experienced, happy to help and regularly works late to finish a job, and he sometimes suggests wee extra things to help improve the look of an area. Always helpful, trustworthy and reasonable value.
