Customer Review
 
I wanted my small tiled fireplace to be opened up, cleared out so that the original space could be used for a wood burning stove. I didn''t know how large the space would be, or what finish would be possible but wanted the largest space possible for a stove. My ideal outcome was a brick interior and a slate hearth for the stove.
 
Cost: £975
 

"John was recommended to me by my joiner. His communication from the outset was professional, helpful and knowledgeable. John worked well with my joiner and my ideas which were variable - so not the easiest!

The fireplace turned out to be larger than I expected and the rubble inside was cleared away quickly and the area kept very clean and tidy. We discussed the finish for the fireplace and John even sourced reclaimed bricks for me, and got them the next day, as the brick slips that I had brought would not have been suitable. The other materials were all sourced quickly so that the job was not delayed.

The stove was then installed. Again, because the fireplace was larger than expected, a stove had to be sourced quickly. John's recommendation of supplier was excellent and we got a stove for John to install so that timescales were not held up. John also helped the joiner to remove a window lintel.

I am delighted with the finished job and am very happy to recommend him to others. I will be using him again as well."

Customer Review
 
Remove internal wall between kitchen and sitting room

"John visited our house some months before we were ready for the work to start. He discussed all of our options and then emailed us a quotation with a breakdown of what was required and labour costs. When we eventually contacted John he was able to fit us in at fairly short notice which worked really well around us having our damp course completed in the same area of the house by other contractors.

John was extremely helpful, flexible, easy to work with and happy to explain everything, sharing his knowledge. We were particularly surprised at how clean and tidy our house was afterwards given the work that had been undertaken. Our other contractors actually asked who had completed the wall removal as they were very impressed with the job.

Absolutely no hesitation to recommend John - a pleasure to work with!"
