Fantastic service all round from Darryl's quote to completion. James, our fitter was first class, he arrived at eight every day and always told us what was happening on the day. He was professional and friendly, he's a credit to the company. We were due to have an extractor fan fitted but when the electrician arrived he found this couldn't be completed as per the original quote. An alternative method was found and completed at no addition cost. We're more than happy with the work completed and would use Farthings again.

Bathroom refit

Farthings have carried out a number of jobs for us, most recently a complete refit of our family bathroom and en-suite. They are a professional outfit. You get a detailed quotation within a couple of days of their visit and they now have a great showroom at their premises in Glenfield which is a great help with choosing products and tiles etc. Their prices are reasonable and comparable. We were allocated Kelvin for our job, who arrived before 8 am every day. His workmanship is of the highest standard with great attention to detail. He is also very engaging, nothing is too much trouble including hoovering carpets at the end of each day. Our 2 bathrooms are fantastic, we could not be more delighted and we do not say that very often! We would definitely use Farthings again and are happy to recommend them.

We had used Farthings on a number of occasions but the last time was to refit our downstairs cloakroom. Farthings came and measured up and produced a plan which was perfect for the room. Once we had agreed to the plan the work was scheduled and completed without a hitch to a very good standard. Their showroom was a great source of inspiration as it contained lots of examples which made the choice of materials so much easier than trying to choose them online or from a catalogue. What was most pleasing is that the whole job was completed by the same person with no hanging around for different trades to complete specific aspects of the fit. The fitter was really good and did a lovely job from start to finish and kept us updated all through the fitting out. Would highly recommend Farthings and indeed we have further work which needs attention and we shan't be looking anywhere else.

Thank you very much for your review. It is lovely to hear such a positive response from the services we provide. Our CAD designs are done individually and often take a lengthy time therefore we are very happy to hear they are appreciated and act as a useful tool for our customers!

During the installation of Worcester Bosch boiler and insuring work, 4 men attended. All were equally efficient to have working during this Covid period. Polite & helpful.

Farthings supplied and fitted a new bathroom for us 3 years ago. The service from start to finish was first class. Unfortunately, due to a leak from the loo the vanity units were damaged with water ingress. On the day of the leak after a phone call Farthings sent a plumber within the hour who identified the problem and made the loo safe. Due to the lock down they were not able to effect a repair but as soon as the lockdown was lifted they were able to order the parts and complete a full repair in 2 weeks. Pretty impressive given the circumstances. The bathroom now looks like new again. Excellent workmanship and very tidy workmen who respect your property. Would definitely recommend.
