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: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 100%
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: 100%
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.

Customer Review
 
Converting an old derelict barn into a luxury holiday let. From initial meetings with the architect, liaising closely with Building Inspectors, working with utility supply companies to install electricity, water and gas supplies and then finally managing and delivering the full range of building services (roofing, electrical, plastering, tiling, joinery). Working in partnership with heritage dry stone wallers to ensure that the new property matched existing buildings. Creating a mezzanine bedroom area, fully fitted kitchen, shower room, installing a new staircase. Repurposing many existing structural features such as timber frames, limestone floor tiles, acid-washing a feature stone fireplace. Ensuring that the whole project was kept to an agreed budget and timeframe.

"An absolute pleasure to work with Tony and his team - couldn't imagine doing such a large renovation project without him.
He achieved that perfect balance between keeping me informed of progress or issues and yet making appropriate decisions himself when needed.
Always kept the site tidy and organised, very respectful of the impact of his work on neighbours - to the point where they said they would miss him when he finally finished!
Tony manages to keep an eye out for the smallest detail as well as seeing the bigger picture and is happy to share many years of building experience when you have a query.
More than happy to highly recommend him to anyone who is considering their own "Grand Design" project - no matter what the size!

Smarter Home 4U were commissioned to supply and install a new loft hatch, ladders and board as much useable space in our loft as possible.
 
Cost: £800
 

"They provided a quote, turned up on time on the booked day. They performed an excellent installation, tidied up after themselves and even managed to get us more space to use than I anticipated.

They came in on budget and under time.

These guys managed to under promise and OVER deliver. I would not only be happy to recommend them, but am already booking them for another job."

Enlarging first floor window to front of house.

"Job assessed, good quality new window provided with our preferences taken into account, work excellent and efficient and house left clean. All at a fair price. Tony carried out a job for us previously and we would certainly use him again.

Tony is a good communicator, listened to what we wanted - and delivered it, on time and at a fair price."

alterations to existing room layout - studded wall and new internal doorway created.

"It was our second time using Tony & Chris, they're one of only a handful of tradesman who I'd recommend without hesitation. They're clean and tidy, come in on budget, on time and are always friendly and positive. The work completed this time was: adding a stud wall, some framework to the ceiling for new lighting and restructured an internal wall creating a new doorway, as well as rehanging 2 doors. Happy with the work completed, I hope to use them again soon!"

New kitchen

""I called Tony with a query about Kitchen refurb, and I was delighted when he not only showed up, but on time too. While he was assessing the work, he managed to fix a toilet cistern that needed to be re-set (when other people had told me I needed a new toilet), so I commissioned him on the spot. If you are thinking about hiring Tony for work, do it now ! He and Chris are honest, reliable, they do great quality work, are friendly, keep you in the loop and they charge a fair price. They did the work promptly, which was much appreciated. The kitchen looks amazing now, and they even managed to repair the back gate at the same time. Really top guys who do A* rated work. Im already thinking about other work they can help me with. ""

Bathroom, ensuites and cloakroom refurbished

"Smarter Home 4U is a thoroughly recommendable company. Tony was prompt with a quote, reliable during the work and couldn't have been pleasanter. The work was carried out and finished to a very high standard and within the stated time. We couldn't be happier with the stunning and contemporary looking end result."

New skirting boards fitted

"Tony & Chris are professional, reliable and very helpful. Promptly reply to advice requests & ensured the best results were achieved. Completed the work in a timely, efficient manner and cleaned up afterwards. For larger projects, they are popular and have work planned so pre-booking is a must! Will definitely use again once we've saved for the bigger projects! "

wetroom installation and groundwork

"After months of trying to arrange tradesmen individually to install a new ensuite wetroom in our Victorian house we decided to use Smarter Home 4u to keep a handle on cost and make the process quicker and easier. Tony and his team were friendly, professional and punctual and his estimate was competitive. We encountered a minor issue a couple of weeks after installation but the following day someone came out to rectify. I would highly recommend him and his team and would not hesitate to contact them for future work. "

Kitchen worktop and doors fitted

"I have had replacement kitchen doors and new work top and appliances fitted by Tony and Chris - very efficient service from start to finish and the work has been completed to a high standard.
Slight 'hiccup' with worktop delivery company but Tony sorted out arrangements to overcome this which took the hassle away from me.
Overall very impressed by their professionalism, punctuality and their tidiness.
No hesitation in recommending their services. "

Garden and Back door Handrails for disabled person

"Quote came speedily and work completed on date promised. Very pleased with the work and not having to chase up things. The extra effort and time put in by the company to locate specialist materials for what was a small-ish job was very much appreciated and the service was friendly and the work of high quality. Very reasonably priced. I would recommend this company to anyone feeling frustrated by leaving messages for uninterested builders who don't call back."

Home improvement

"We needed our boiler in the back bedroom boxing in and asked Tony to give us a quote.
We also needed more storage space and Tony suggested that we kill two birds with one stone and enclosed the boiler and made it into an airing cupboard by adding sliding doors. The cupboard looks like it's always been there and makes the bedroom look like a bedroom again and not "the room with the boiler in"!
All the work was done neatly and professionally and Tony and Chris tidied other jobs that they noticed while they were here.
We'd recommend them to anyone looking to do home improvements and/or"

New kitchen, new bedroom - and lots of 'little jobs too!

"Tony and his team are simply first class, no matter if it it's been a bigger job like a new kitchen, bathroom or bedroom right down to those smaller jobs too, such as putting up TV brackets or fixing wonky doors and shelves. I've been using Tony as my home improvement and repairs person for many years - and now my adult children (who are buying their first homes) are using him too. There are no surprises when it comes to the bill and the work is of an excellent standard. More than that, he's an absolute pleasure to have in your home because he treats it with the respect you want. "

Kitcken carpentry and fixing wash basin

"I needed two jobs to be done: a faulty wash basin in my bathroom and carpentry modification to be done in my kitchen.
Punctuality; workmanship; communication skills and cleanliness were all excellent.
Tony was very helpful; and this was demonstrated when he found a further fault with my wash basin which required a replacement part which he didn't have available he went to the local DIY store and returned to complete the job in the allotted time quoted for the initial work! I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tony and Chris for the sterling work they carried out on my behalf. "

"I have recently used Smarter Homes 4 u and had a new kitchen fitted. Both Tony and Chris are very professional, punctual and hard working. Some of the work had to be contracted out and Tony organised this with no hesitation. Again his contractors turned up on time and on the right day!This meant that everything was done efficiently and in the correct order. I am so pleased with the result, I will certainly use this company again and will recommend them to friends and family."

General Maintainance

"I was recommended to use Smarter Home 4U by a business friend and it was the best recommendation I could have been given. I needed someone to come and look at my list of jobs in the evening when I was home from work. (Brink work, bathroom, tiling, glazing, patio) Tony was very prompt and smart (Nice van and uniform), he gave me a great price for the work and I left him with keys to let himself in to complete the work while I was away. The work was completed to a very high standard and I could tell he takes pride in his work, if nothing else by the way he proudly showed me the completed jobs."
