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: 98%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 99%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 95%
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: 80%
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 number of jobs needing done and Graeme got them all done very quickly and without leaving any mess behind. Would highly recommend.

"It is difficult to get anyone to do small jobs so we had quite a list built up. All jobs were completed to our satisfaction and any changes to the requested work were explained fully."

Fitted our doors with new hardware
 
Cost: £270
 

"Graeme did a great job. This is our second time asking Graeme to come in a fix something in our house and would not hestitate to do it again. First visit he revealed our bath and put up a banister. This visit he fitted our new doors for us with hardware and even fixed the other banister in our house. Hes a good find and will make sure we use his services in the future should we need them. Highly recommend."

Customer Review
 
There was a large crack in the living room ceiling and some sagging of the plaster. The debonded plaster was removed, repaired and then whole ceiling was skimmed.
 
Cost: £498
 

"Any plasterwork is a messy job, I hadn't realised just what a horrible job it would be to execute but Graeme Heywood tackled it head on, worked extremely hard and did a fantastic job. He did his best to clear up after the work was finished but plaster dust does get everywhere, so you have to be prepared to do some cleaning yourself afterwards. Also because it was a ceiling I had to remove as much furniture from the room as possible, I didn't have spare space to remove everything but Graeme worked around what was left without complaint. Altogether I'm very satisfied with the work carried out."

Remodelling of part of built in residential caravan furniture to allow free-standing chair to be added.
 
Cost: £180
 

"Graeme has a careful and thoughtful approach to his work which ensures the best outcomes. He has done two slightly unusual jobs for us, remodelling part of some caravan interior furniture and helping with a van interior conversion. Both times he has engaged in discussion with us during the work about how best to achieve what we needed and we have been delighted with the results. He is also prompt, polite, tidy and his work is excellent and reasonably priced, so we will definitely ask for his help again."

Resealing of shower tray and bathroom sink Replacement of bedroom door with relevant fittings

"Graeme appeared at the agreed time and was very efficient and conscientious in the work he carried out.

In the case of the door he responded quickly indicating a local supplier for the specific door we required. Once we had reserved it he promptly collected the door and arranged a date for fitting.

All of the work carried out was of a very high standard and the price charged was very reasonable.

Would have no hesitation in recommending Graeme to family and friends in fact have already done so.
