I started off getting a number of quotes for the work, With Lucas you receive a quote, and then you receive a contract. He wasn't the cheapest but with the contract which is totally itemised you get piece of mind that what you ask for you get. He started work on the agreed start date diligently worked around another contractor, He worked well and was very good with the detail. There was always good communication about when he was coming and what he was going to do. Things progressed as expected, with many items there were options, such as the colour of the bricks and the doors and windows. These were discussed and in many cases we went together to look at the options and he ordered. We even left him to carry on whilst we went on holiday. He worked around our daily lives and always cleaned up after himself. Once all the work was complete, he has been back a couple of times where things were not quite to our satisfaction, he gave us a time and date of when he would get them repaired and did so without any fuss. I would totally recommend him as he did the construction aspects such as foundations and brick work well, but also the painting and decorating to a very high standard. There were things that weren't in the contract which he didn't have to do, but as someone who takes pride in their work, he did them and our home is better for having him complete them.
