Rich has worked with me on two projects now. Both have been full refurbishments of large victorian houses. Preparing and finishing the decorating of all internal walls, ceilings, cornicing and woodwork. Plus all external masonary work, as shown in his gallery of the blue and white house. In the time I've known him, four months in total, I've learned that he is incredibly hard working and that his finish is to the very highest standard possible. His work ethic is unparalleled in my thirty five years of experience, working in the commercial and private sectors of the building industry. He is reliable, polite, punctual without fail, patient and professional enough to not get in the slightest bit agitated when, having made a beautiful job of top coating the woodwork in an entire room, skirtings, architraves and doors, one of the other trades does something in an adjacent area to cover his fresh paint with a coating of dust! He calmly rectified the whole problem the next day, without even anything that resembled a groan or moan........and not once in all that time did he answer his mobile phone to anyone while working! He is quite simply the cream of the crop. I have to confess to feeling quite annoyed that one of his reviewers chose only to give him four stars for each category, even though she was obviously as over the moon with his work as all the other reviewers, myself included. Five stars is the honest reflection of Richard as a tradesman, well done, an example to all.
