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: 96%
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: 92%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 91%
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.

EXTERIOR. After re-instatement of a window from french doors the lower section and above required roughcasting. Max was able to do this with apparent ease. He also took the time to match as close as possible the existing roughcast. INTERIOR. The inside below the window also needed finishing and again Max expertly beaded and plastered the drywallwall to match existing walls. He also made good a wall in the kitchen working very carefully around sockets and switches (all turned off of course).
 
Cost: £300
 

"Max came when we agreed. He was polite and easy to talk with. After looking at the work he agreed to send a quote showing labour and materials - which he did. He arrived on time each time and completed the work professionally and in a timely manner. He was courteous throughout and we felt reassured we were in very good hands."

Max removed previous roughcasting as it was not up to standard and replaced the the roughcasting to a very high standard
 
Cost: £6000
 

"Max and his team were very pleasant,helpful and friendly,Max always arrived when he said he would and the whole realm always left the area tidy before leaving.

I had previously had a very bad experience with bad builder Ďs so was a bit worried about having more work done but I cannot praise Max and his colleagues highly enough, and would not hesitate to employ Max should I require any further work inside or outside.

If for any reason Max was not able to arrive when he said he would he always informed me so that I knew what was going on day to day."

Damaged walls in gutted kitchen plastered to smooth finish.
 
Cost: £450
 

"Max turned up to give a quote for the work & provided a start date if going ahead. He was delayed by another job however he informed me in plenty of time and agreed another date. Turned up on time and made good all areas in the kitchen. Next day he started early to ensure he could complete the smooth finish and made sure it was all good. He cleaned up any mess before leaving. Offered to handle any issues we may have-not sure what as things look great."

Plastering of my hallway including all walls and the roof
 
Cost: £650
 

"Max was really helpful from start to finish and was quick to come round and assess the job and give me a quote. His price was competitive and seemed on par with previous work I have had done and matched up with what I expected to pay for the size of job. He was confident that the job would be easily completed (other plasterers made a point of saying how difficult artex was to plaster over and didnít give the impressions they were confident in their ability or even really wanted the job!) and was happy to fit me in where he could. The overall job looks great and the Hall was left tidy."
