Review Comments
1. Removing kitchen unit to fit tumble drier. To maximise storage Gary also fitted a narrow pull out unit and an access panel to corner void through sink cupboard. Very imaginative and works well. He also coordinated an electrician to fit double socket and repair pendant light within the time frame.
2. Fitted 2 tv brackets to lathe and plaster walls which needed additional panels for safety. Very neat job.
3. The oven has never fitted flush with the kitchen units since new kitchen was installed. Gary added wood inserts to either side of oven and used long screws and oven now where it needs to be. Wish we’d found Gary a while ago to fit the whole kitchen!
4. Sourced and fitted new spray tap with no mess or leak.
Gary is very skilled at what he does and is an excellent problem solver. He is methodical and organised and does a clean and tidy job.

Review Comments
We hired Gary to remove a kitchen/living room wall and fit a steel support beam after being let down at the last minute by another builder when we had other works scheduled that were relying on it. Gary and Kev done an incredible job and also noticed an issue with the plans for the works that hadn't been considered by the previous builder, architect or structural engineer before he'd walked in the door. Amazed at the amount of work they managed in such little time too, and were super friendly and lovely to have around. Would recommend Gary to anybody looking for work done (and already have to work and friends!)

Absolutely delighted with the work Gary did. We had a number of small jobs that needed attended to and everything was done to a very high standard. Gary was very professional and thorough. Would have no hesitation in recommending and certainly would employ Gary for all future jobs

Gary fitted some new skirting boards, a coat hanger and a shelf. He also found time to fix our loose door lock as an extra, free of charge. All of the jobs were done faultlessly and with real craft. Would highly recommend him

We are delighted with our new garage door. Gary arrived exactly when he said he would, he then worked hard and kept us up to date on his progress.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

We had some kitchen refurb work done replacing tile flooring and work tops. I found Gary very reliable and did the work on time and to a high standard. He also tidied up after himself! I have no reservations about recommending him to others.

Toilet flush went and unfortunately the whole unit was encompassed within a wooden cabinet requiring joinery skills to access toilet and then plumbing skills to fix flush. Gary did both and left the unit with a removable front should any issue arise again. Many tradesmen refused to help and Gary came out within days of contact. Very much appreciated and would recommend.

Gary replaced rotten wood on the outside of my dormer window, removed the old plaster from the inside of my outside cupboard and arranged for it to be replastered and replaced the door.
I am really pleased with all the work done both by Gary and Kevin who did the plastering. Gary has also recommended people to do other work I need done.
My only issue was the time it took to have the work done after the initial visit which meant it was being done when the weather wasn’t so good. However, I guess that’s what happens when the person you want to do the work is a good tradesman and he’s very much in demand!

Gary and his team installed a complete new bathroom. They also replaced a rotten floor, as well as doing some electrical repairs and redecorating our whole flat. From first contact to completion, Gary kept us informed about progress and we had complete confidence in him. We will certainly use Gary and his team again.

Gary provided us with a very professional service from enquiry stage to completion of job and the final product (deck step) is of a high standard. Due to time restrictions we were unable get other quotes for comparison purposes. However, we can say that he was very accommodating to our circumstances, did not rush the job (which although small was tricky) and left the site absolutely as he found it, which is rare. We would be happy to contract him again if needed in future.

I'm really happy with the work that Gary did on my shower and wet wall installation.

My DIY knowledge is minimal, so Gary was great at explaining the options for me in plain English.

The quote was reasonable, the work was completed promptly, and he left the flat immaculate afterwards.

Would definitely recommend Gary for any work you're needing done!

I'll have no hesitation in either contacting First Fix again to get work done, or in recommending them. My job had to be changed after the initial quote due to circumstances outside of our control (a third party was responsible). This increased the overall cost, but I have no complaints. Gary wasn't phased by the change and very quickly calmed my fears about my ceiling and the scale of the work required to get a complete ceiling again. The work was done on time and to a very high quality. The clean-up afterwards was very impressive too. It's so hard to find good tradesmen these days. I'm so glad I used this site and chose First Fix.

First Fix property care - I found that it was easy to make contact with Gary. He responded promptly and arranged a visit to assess the scope of work. When he assessed the job he made sensible suggestions for repair and replacements. After assessing the work he was also kind enough to suggest and arrange some temporary support for the structure that was due to be replaced.
Main repair work went smoothly with completion ahead of time. Final invoice was in accordance with both the verbal and written estimates. Very satisfactory !
