Customer Review
 
Mr Murphy and I met as I was about to move into my new flat in the spring of 2018. At our first meeting I was impressed by his pleasant manners, his politeness and the overall cultured impression he made on me. He was going to refurbish the flat: build a new kitchen, bathroom, convert the garden into a patio, make structural changes in this three-bedroom flat, as recommended by the surveyor and redecorate the entire property. The project was complicated by the fact that it had to be done in two phases with a four-month gap in between, owing to my own work-related circumstances.
 
Cost: £12000
 

"Mr Murphy did most of the work himself. He is a fully qualified builder and plumber and can do electrical work too. The quality of his work is nothing short of impeccable: his a seasoned and highly experienced professional who takes pride in his work. His friend and colleague, Andy Bridger, also worked in the house : he did most of the work on the new kitchen. Mr Bridger is also a talented, thoroughly reliable and pleasant young man whose work is of excellent quality. The difference between these two gentlemen and the overwhelming majority of people who have done work for me in the past could not be greater. Sadly it is my firm belief that they are the exception rather than the rule. In the past the only people from whom I received decent service were Polish. They had a large team and they were much more expensive than Mr Murphy. I know from conversations with Mr Murphy that it is very difficult for him to find reliable labourers to work for him. He therefore works round the clock. If something is unfinished he comes back on Saturday and Sunday to get it done. If I had the capital I would have no hesitation to fund him in order to expand: I would gladly invest in his company. Mr Murphy has an excellent sense of humor and it is a pleasure to have him around. He has a quick wit and likes to practice his French. I will never call anyone else in future if work needs to be done in the house. My neighbors, watching him work, have all contacted him to plan building work to be done by his firm in their own homes."

Interior decoration, single rooms, whole house, office refurbishment

"I've used Murphy's for quite a few jobs from quick room refresh to a whole house - everything was done exceptionally well and without any real disruption to the house during works.
Max is professional but does have an annoying habit of turning up when he says he will(joke!) a rarity for tradespeople these days!
Communication was always excellent and any changes/additions to the work - on advise of the team - was always felt to be in my interest of having a better finish and not simply to add cost to the job.
Have happily recommended to my friends and clients who will all attest to the quality of the work done by Murphy's"

Redecoration of whole house including exterior Sinking of set of mirrors into wall, plastering and painting Painting porch and repairing exterior lighting Sanding old mahogany doors and painting

"Max has undertaken work for us numerous times and is always willing to tackle little jobs as well as the bigger ones. Recently he redecorated most of the house including the exterior and we were delighted with his work. He is professional, polite and always respectful of you and your property. Max will always return if you have any small snagging issues and will only consider a piece of work completed when you are entirely satisfied with it, even if he has been paid. He will come back for nothing in his own time to rectify the smallest issue. We would recommend him most highly."

Max has done several jobs for us over the past five years. The jobs were mostly painting and decorating (bathroom, downstairs toilet, lounge and kitchen, but the lounge and kitchen included replacing three doors that included some carpentry work.

"Max is a competent worker, reliable and a pleasure to have around. His estimates for the jobs to be done are straightforward with no hidden costs. I would gladly recommend him."

Customer Review
 
Removing an old kitchen worktop and replacing it with a new one from Howdens. The old worktop was very hard to remove and the new one has to be cut carefully to fit around a sink and hob before installation.
 
Cost: £567
 

"We have used this small local firm for large and small jobs in recent years and been very happy with their work. They are honest, reliable and friendly, and the work is always done to a good standard for a reasonable price. They have always stuck to the quoted price, discussed the price of invoices for materials in advance and supplied copies of these. We would not hesitate to recommend them and will definitely be using them again in the future."

Customer Review
 
Refurbishment of a small two bedroom terraced house including two new bathrooms and a redesign of the kitchen. Redesign of the garden including relocating a shed and laying a patio.

"The firm was recommended to us by another customer who has had good experiences with them on several rental properties in the past. We were impressed with the firm's keenness to win and do the job. They were quick off the mark assessing the work to be done and estimating for it. Although the work took longer than originally planned, the firm stuck to the agreed budget and was entirely sensible about the few extra items that cropped up along the way. One or two smaller items were added along the way at no extra charge which was much appreciated. The approach to and quality of the work were ideal for this property and the budget we had in mind. The firm deserves to do will in its chosen market."
