Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Good Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Charges: 97%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 99%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 94%
Before starting work, did the firm explain how to pay (e.g. cash, cheque, etc.)?
 
Reliable: 100%
During the work, did the firm keep their promises, explaining and agreeing any changes about the work, costs or timing where necessary?
 
Invoice: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 74%
On completion, did the firm give you a guarantee for a specified amount of time, or usage (where applicable)?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

open up a doorway, plaster and finish around large window, remove wood surround from conservatory and plaster around, fit 2 new doors and all new skirting.

"Greame did a great job of sorting out an historical mess. Huge gaps in wall where conservatory did not actually fit the space and large planks had been used to cover gaps with no filler. Everything he did with windows and doors was more work than it first appeared but he took it on with good grace and kept us abreast of changes and additional costs. He came when he said he would and worked hard and steadily all day. he only left to get further material, no going off and disappearing for hours like some workmen do.The photos dont do justice to the work since it doesnt show the conservatory! would highly recommend him and hope to use him again now he's tackled our worst room so well."
 
 

New doorway - new facings, glazed oak door hung with hardware

Customer Review
 
Various jobs including ceiling plastering and installation of a mounting bracket for a flatscreen TV.
 
Cost: £1400
 

"From start to finish, Graeme provided a very professional and efficient handyman service. We had a number of different jobs requiring an expert's touch, including the plastering of our living room and kitchen ceilings, installation of new internal door, and the installation of a TV mount, as well as some electrical work to move electrical sockets for the TV.

The costs quoted were reasonable - not the cheapest but not the most expensive either – and you do get what you pay for. Quality is important for us and that's what we got. Importantly, the costs initially quoted were very close to the final invoice, and Graeme was very clear if there were to be any additional costs.

Graeme was very reliable, arriving at the times agreed and undertaking the work we had agreed to get done that day. The work was done to a high standard, and little mess was left behind (and plastering is messy work!).

Our ceilings, doors and newly-mounted TV look fantastic and we will be getting Graeme out in the future to help with some exterior work (new fence and shed)."
