We appreciate you are likely to obtain a quote from more than one company, and in our experience, having spoken with many customers who have been disappointed by earlier work by other companies, it's not neccesarily the cheapest quote that will provide the best service!
All our visits and quotations are carried out by Chris Kirk in person, who will also be carrying out the work either individually or as part of his trusted team. Be wary of some other companies where the person preparing a seemly cheaper quote is not the same as those who turn up to carry out the work.
"We had recently brought a old run down top floor apartment above a business which is a listed building. It needed a full renovation inside and out and was going to be a very tough job and large amount of work needed. I contacted Chris and asked him if he could come along and work out what it would cost to get this place back to normal as I was wanting to turn it into office space. When he arrived he was very polite and knew exactly what was needed, the walls were completed shot and rotten and advised me these would need replastering throughout before painting. I also explained it was in need of other major building work inside, and in the roof area, as well the plastering and decorating throughout, thankfully Chris could also get in other contractors to carry out the work as well which was great to know. He assured me the guys he uses for other work are reputable, trustworthy, and realiable and the guys he used were in fact excellent. He kept me informed all the time as to what was happening and how the work was progressing, we had a few issues along the way which was unexpected due to the age of the building, but he and his team got the place looking fantastic, nothing was left or not done. I am extremely happy with his work and would always recommend him. Well done!"

"I recently purchased a 5 bedroom house that was very run down inside, it needed a complete overhaul inside, cracks everywhere and old wallpaper needed to be stripped. I was feeling quite regretful as I thought this will never look how I imagined the inside should be. However after meeting Chris and his work partner he assured me that it would go to plan and everything will be fine, he kept me updated as to how the work was going as the house was not occupied due its condition. So after 3 months of hard work I was astounded, it was like walking into a completely different house. Well done! "
