We employed John to carry out an extensive renovation to our home between Jan. and July 2016. The scope of works included: building an Orangery with a roof lantern, integrating our Kitchen, Living and Dining areas into an open plan layout, replacing all windows, doors, floors, soffits, fascia, guttering, remodelling of the Utility Room and all bathrooms, plastering and painting of internal walls and ceilings, fitting a new central heating boiler and radiators, and rendering the outside. John has a competent and trustworthy team comprising: Trevor (for civil works), Dean (for plastering, painting, and rendering), Peter (for Joinery and numerous odd jobs) and Steve for assisting all of them. They all worked well together and did their best to minimise disruption and dust. We employed an Architect who managed the overall project. Regular progress reviews were conducted which helped in the budgeting and planning. There were many changes and quite a few challenges, which John handled in a polite and professional manner. John has extensive knowledge of the building trade, an accommodating style and is very trustworthy. He was patient and considerate and made many good suggestions, some of which we accepted. We have no hesitation in recommending John. David & Claire August 2016.
