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: 57%
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.

"Sean and his team undertook to redecorate our whole house (3 bed, 1 reception, 2 bath). This included changing the carpet through out and repairing our back garden gate/fence and garden tidy up. Having had Sean's team do various other works for us already previously, I have always been pleased with the overall quality of the work delivered by his team. And this goes for this particular job on our house that we were preparing for sale. A special note of thanks for being timely with the works. Thank you again for your support on this matter, and would not hesitate to recommend Sean and his team to others looking for a reliable and trustworthy team."

Bathroom complete refurbishment Kitchen - completely new kitchen with fixtures and fixings New wooden floor

"I have worked with Sean for several years and always highly recommend his service.

Sean and his team take pride on not only doing an excellent job but making sure throughout the project they communicate with their client. It's as though any job being carried out is like it is being done on their own property!

They are reliable, professional , honest and always come back when they say they will and Sean personally checks all final work before any payments are due.

They are a delight to work with and I highly recommend this firm."

Full exterior redecoration and restoration of large Victorian house.
 
Cost: £2000
 

"Sean O'Shea were recommended to us and were very prompt to come out and give us an estimate and the quote was thorough and reasonable. The work started very quickly at a time that suited us. Sean was very proactive and made suggestions that we hadn't thought of. He also came up with cost-saving ideas which isn't something we've experienced before. He was very good at problem-solving too. The tradespeople that actually did the work were exceptionally reliable, punctual, friendly and helpful - it was a pleasure having them around the house. (They were lifesavers when I locked myself out of the house). Sean O'Shea Builders and Decorators would be my first port of call for any work that we have done in the future and I really can't recommend them highly enough."

Outside rendered. New shower room. Hall and landing decorated.
 
Cost: £13000
 

"Sean and his team worked amazingly quick they arrived on time were very efficient and cleaned up after themselves every day. His team are very friendly. The first job was to render the outside of my house I was so impressed with all the work I then asked them to renovate my shower room once again they worked very hard not stopping even for a break just got on with the job keeping me up to date each day with the progress. Each night Sean would phone to make sure I was happy with the workmen and work completed. I didn't finish there as I asked Sean to decorate my hall and landing which again was completed to my satisfaction. I was so impressed by Sean and his team I have recommended his company to several friends andfamily."
