Reliable and great work

We would thoroughly recommend Gerry. He was very professional, polite, and reliable. He also gave some great suggestions when we had a doubt. We are happy with the end result and Gerry came back to finish off the last little details, which we greatly appreciated. This was a small kitchen project but we are thinking about using Gerry again in the future.

We had two alcove cupboards built in our lounge along with two shelves. Gerry was brilliant, he listened and completely understood what we wanted and talked through the finer details with us at each stage, giving us advise when we needed it. The work was completed on time and the price was amended in line with our final product. He was considerate of our home and kept everything clean and tidy over the 3 days he was here. We are extremely happy with the units and shelves especially the extra details he added in which made them look like they have always been here. I wouldn’t hesitate to ask him to come back for another project.

Gerry has built a new cupboard to our design, matching the dimensions of an original cupboard in the same room, Gerry also restored the old cupboard preparing and painting the doors and waxing the cupboard carcass. The new cupboard is exactly what we wanted. The work was completed in the time and budget agreed. Gerry kept us informed at every stage of the work and incorporated changes as the work progressed. His work was tidy and it was a pleasure having him and his apprentice in our home. Gerry will definitely be doing more work for us in the future.

Excellent carpenter and kitchen fitter

Gerry and Daniel have just finished renovating our kitchen and have done an outstanding job. In addition to removing the old kitchen and fitting the new one, the work also involved knocking down a wall, bricking up a window and door and fixing damage to a ceiling caused by an old leak. Gerry managed the whole project, including all plumbing, electrics, plastering, window fitting and decorating. He is an excellent craftsman, a great communicator and was very helpful in terms of the kitchen design itself. He also sorted out unforeseen issues very promptly (e.g. getting a heating engineer to move some pipes). He and Daniel were always punctual, hardworking, courteous and friendly and left the place tidy up at the end of each day. The project was also finished on time and budget. I can heartily recommend Heron Carpentry.

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.

The trader replied (on 18/10/2020)
I am very sorry and embarrassed to read about your experience. The summer was an extremely busy period after the lockdown was lifted and upon checking my diary I realised that I mistakenly double-booked you on the day I was supposed to give you a quote. I am very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you and rest assured that I do value all my customers. I accept full responsibility for the mistake and have taken the necessary steps to prevent it from happening in the future. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Great work - home bouldering wall
Customer Service

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.

Gerry designed and built a bookcase, media unit and storage cupboard for our new house. He was responsive, efficient and friendly. The work was completed on time and to budget. One month on the work looks great and we haven’t noticed any problems. Several people have commented on the high standard of the work and we are very pleased with it. Additionally Gerry is also training a young apprentice and it’s great to see someone taking an interest in educating the next generation. We would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone looking for similar work in their property.
