Job: replacing old dormer window facing with slates.
Scott kept us fully informed of progress and checked all stages of the job. The window was in a tricky spot to reach, but Scott negotiated access with the neighbours so that his team could work.

The job was done well and efficiently.

Review Comments
We are very happy with the bathroom Scott fitted at our flat in Leith. We were impressed from the outset by both his professionalism and by his convivial and approachable manner. He replied promptly when invited to quote, arrived on time, and within 48 hours he had provided us with detailed costings both by email and by post. Since each part of the job was itemised and priced (alongside alternatives) we could not have been clearer on costs. Although we had a design in mind, Scott was able to offer suggestions and practical alternatives. Work started promptly and only supply issues prevented completion within 10 days. The tradesmen that worked on our bathroom were all really pleasant, well-mannered and importantly, skilled. Scott oversaw proceedings and made himself available as and when required but he is also a craftsman and some of his finishing touches were excellent. ‘Snagging’ issues arise in all such projects but we were impressed by the polite and prompt manner Scott had these resolved. We liaised with Scott quite a bit by phone and text as well as face to face and despite the fact that we may have at times been a little pernickety, Scott was remarkably patient, helpful and polite. I had not realised that having a bathroom fitted could actually be a pleasant experience!

Scott undertook an extensive remedial project on our extension. Working with an engineer and architect, he managed a demanding project which involved strengthening the entire extension to the engineers specification, installing a new central heating system and water pipes, rewiring the electrics in the house, as well as installing a large kitchen and 3 bathrooms. He was 100% reliable and very accommodating throughout the process. He also was extremely helpful in the planning procedure and kept us informed throughout the 4 month project with photo updates and regular contact. Any issues that arose during the project were sorted quickly through good communication. Scott helped in the process of finding the best deals on kitchens, bathrooms, flooring, and gave excellent advice throughout the project on getting best value for money.

Review Comments
Stay well clear of this trader!!! Right from the outset of approximately a six week contract, SBC attempted to employ certain tactics, in order to cut corners and his costs.
Whenever these practices were questioned, he would apportion the blame to the two sub-contracting joiners, both of which I had absolutely no issues with. For three days, he continually endeavored to implement these tactics, but was always caught-out.
On the forth morning, he covertly tried to remove materials from the job, under the guise of replacing them with more appropriate ones.
Come day five, he failed to turn up to the job, and subsequently concocted a catalogue of inaccurate statements in a vain attempt to justify his antics.
All of the above actions and more were duly reported to Trusted Traders. Therefore, I very strongly advise everyone NOT to employ his services, unless you are willing to monitor every single detail of the works.

Moderator Response
The trader has requested that the following comments be left by way as his reply to the review:-

I had my reservations about this client from the outset but went against my better judgement & started the contract. He was a nightmare from the outset & I refute his allegations. I withdrew from the contract as he became extremely unreasonable & threatening.

SBC were recommended by another tradesman I already knew but I had not used them previously. They always turned up when agreed and completed the work as agreed and on time. We suffered a lot of damage from an internal water leak so we had to have structural, plastering and electrical work done which was all organised by them.

I was very happy with the competitive price quoted by SBC (compared with others and my Insurers estimates).

There is no point in taking a photo of the room as I should have taken one prior for comparison and all of the hard work of SBC is now underneath the decorating.
