Easy communication, trustworthy and good work

We had Gerry and Dan build a coat cupboard and storage dining bench in our newly refurbished house. Gerry also hung several reclaimed doors for us. We are very happy with the work. Gerry and Dan were respectful of our home, including that we had to work while they were there, and most importantly, they always shut the door so the dogs didn't run out! Gerry worked with us on the design of the pieces being built eg the shape of the shelves and adding ventilation to the bench to allow airflow for electrical equipment being kept in it. He was always accommodating of our bespoke requirements. This was especially true with the reclaimed doors, which threw some curve balls given they weren't pristine and Gerry adapted the doorframes to make it work. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Highly recommended - carpentry and kitchen fitting

Gerry fitted our kitchen - effectively project managing a team to strip out an old kitchen, replaster the room, then fit the new one - and he made us built in wardrobes from scratch for our bedroom. Communication was excellent throughout, the work was done on time and to a very high standard, and Gerry was good company and 100% reliable to have in the house. I would recommend very highly for any carpentry or related work required in the south-east London area.

Disappointed, didn't turn up
I arranged with Gerry for him to come a give a quote for a cabin bed. He didn't turn up and when I contacted him an hour after the agreed time to ask if he was still coming, he never replied. Perhaps he wasn't that interested in the job, but it wouldn't have taken much to politely reply or cancel. I've waited a week to give him time before writing this review.

Great work - home bouldering wall
Customer Service
Quality

I am a keen climber, and asked Gerry if he could build a small bouldering wall in my garden so I can practice at home. He did a great job which included planning the build to ensure that the wall fitted well in the available space, which was quite limited as I do not have a large garden. In addition, his planning ensured that the wall was robust and safe and fell within planning permission requirements. Gerry was punctual, hard working and very pleasant, and - most importantly - his work was excellent. Whereas other home bouldering walls often feel a bit unstable, mine feels completely secure. For climbers who are interested , the wall itself is a bit bigger than a "mini moonboard": the main board (made from marine ply) is 10ft long and 8ft wide, with a small kickboard underneath. The board is at an angle of 40 degrees (from the vertical). This was the size that fits best in my garden, but Gerry could do something bespoke for others, depending on how much space is available. I appreciate that this was a really unusual job and it was only really possible with Gerry's considerable expertise.

Under stairs storage

We found Gerry on the Which traders website and he and his small team have been great every step of the way from the design (both sides of the staircase required storage fitting), sticking to his original quote even when small aspects needed adjusting along the way, building the units to fit our not-so-straight walls and the final decorating (including keeping our dog paint-free!). We were so pleased with Gerry’s work we have since used him for skirting jobs and a fitted floor-to-ceiling wardrobe too. We would highly recommend Gerry and his team - not only is the work of the highest quality but they are lovely people to have around.

Heron carpentry installed bespoke integrated wardrobes in our bedroom back in February. Having dealt with the company in the past and being consistently pleased by the results, I can say that this new project didn’t disappoint. Gerry is certainly one of the best carpenters around, working around the clock to deliver fantastic quality work. Great from start to finish, I can only recommend Heron carpentry and I won’t hesitate to use again in the near future ..

We engaged Heron Carpentry to completely refurbish our shower room, downstairs WC and replace interior doors. The work was carried out to a very high standard and we could not have asked for a better service. The team were punctual, considerate, polite and very tidy. Delighted to recommend Heron Carpentry.

We have used Heron Carpentry several times now for our home renovations. Gerry fitted a new kitchen and totally renovated our lounge from top to bottom in a short timeframe, while we were away on holidays last year. We felt like we could trust him with the keys to our house and letting him get on with the project. We have used his services recently to renovate our downstairs toilet and yet again we are very pleased with the high standards of work. Gerry's skills aren't limited to carpentry; indeed he can act as a project manager for you, as he is very well connected to other similarly reliable professionals. After having bad experiences with other traders in the past, we feel like we couldn't use another company for our home now and we always contact Heron carpentry whenever we need any work done. Gerry is a polite and pleasant guy, who takes pride in the work he does, which is of excellent standard. The place is always left clean after the end of the day, and he makes sure the works interfere the least with you daily life, which is nice when you have young children around! I would totally recommend.

Gerry installed some understairs storage for me, on budget and on time. He made helpful suggestions as to the design so I now have functional and practical storage that is also attractive to look at. He also fixed some broken door handles free of charge which is most appreciated. He left my home neat and tidy. I am very happy with the result and definitely would use him again.

Excellent kitchen and bathroom refit

Having used Heron Carpentry previously, I didn’t hesitate to make contact for the kitchen and bathroom refits in an apartment. The work was commenced and completed to schedule and to an excellent standard. Gerry was helpful throughout and kept us informed of any issues, offered solutions as well as useful advice during the fitting. The flat was left clean and tidy at the end of each day. The proof of the quality of the finish has been in the comments from friends and property agents - “superb” “excellent “ “fabulous “. I can confidently recommend Gerry for his professional and friendly approach and the excellent quality of his work.
