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.

We had a full kitchen installation (including electrical, plumbing, tiling and grouting).

"We wanted to change our kitchen and Pete provided an excellent service throughout from initial discussions, recommendations on ways we could potentially save money, instillation and ensuring we were fully happy before leaving... And we’re extremely pleased with it!!

In our experience we couldn’t fault the quality of work or the service provided. Pete and Chris completed all the work while we were away on holiday and we had no issues allowing them access to our property while we weren’t there. There were problems with the kitchen that had been delivered by B&Q (nothing to do with anything they had done), but they just dealt with all of those while we were away without bothering us (we had agreed with Pete before we left that we were happy for him to deal with anything arising, unless it was something expensive then he would call).

We have already recommended Pete to friends and family who want work doing and we would definitely use him again in the future."

The installation of a new kitchen including removing the old one, laying a new floor and the project management of the re-plastering and the electrical and gas works.
 
Cost: £1919
 

"it was difficult to imagine beforehand just how disruptive a kitchen installation is. Peter kept this to a minimum. A total professional as was Chris his co-worker. The kept the place clean, tidy, clearing up every afternoon at the end of the working day.

the installation work was so good too! Every detail was paid attention to, nothing was too much trouble.

My wife and I would use them again - anytime."

Installed wren kitchen, plumbing, tiling and laid
tiled floor.
 
Cost: £1300

"We couldn't have asked for two nicer guys to install our kitchen. Both were always chatty and we also had a good laugh with them. Nothing was too much for them and they did everything we asked
of them. I would highly recommend these guys if you need anything done, big or small, just make sure you have lots of coffee and raspberry ice-cream in your freezer. We will be asking them to do some more work around our house in the new future. "

Carpentry. general building work and project management.

"Peter Lowe is extremely reliable. professional and works with integrity to both the work and to the client. He has excellent communication skills. He has worked on a mixture of jobs for us. He recently project managed urgent required on a flat we have. He demonstrated skill, knowledge and professionalism in steering the project through to completion. Equally he has planned and completed smaller jobs on our house. He is very trustworthy and takes great pride in his work. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other people."

New side on kitchen worktop Pete has done a variety of jobs for us, over several months and at two properties, including: - Retiled bathroom shower - Sanded, retiled and resealed 12m of oak work surface in the kitchen - Installed cast iron curtain rail using oak supports - Retiled wet room - Stripped back to brick and joists bathroom wall and floor, installed bath - Taken down old ceiling and replaced it - Repaired guttering, downpipes and soffits - Replaced door furniture on oak door - Rerouted kitchen electrics and made good And cleared up after, removing all rubbish! Jobs ranged from a few pounds to a couple of hundred

"We originally asked Pete to undertake some typical handyman jobs, but our satisfaction with his work, character and approach led us to use him as a 'go to' person for the wide range of jobs described above. His experience and judgement was evident, for example when he uncovered serious problems with the floor joists in a bathroom that needed redecoration or when he devised a neat way around leakage problems which had been caused by someone else's faulty tiling in a wet room, but he never talks down to you or takes things for granted. He is a good predictor of likely costs, and the uncertainties that come from dealing with very old houses, is absolutely trustworthy and good company, and is a pleasure to deal with."

Fitted a new bathroom.
 
Cost: £12000
 

"The work was expertly organised with different trades arriving on the days that were in the schedule. They were all very friendly and were willing to answer any questions put to them. The work was carried out to a very high standard and where there were choices the different options were explained. I was taken to various suppliers before hand so that I could pick the fittings that I wanted. It is not always easy to pick from a catalogue but much easier when you see the real thing in a showroom. At the end of the work they cleaned and tidied up not only the bathroom but also the route to the front door all of which had been covered throughout the work period. I will be using them again to do further work."
