Very professional company to deal with. Correspondence was prompt and trades people very friendly and professional. Preformed an exacting job to a high specification. A ‘John Lewis’ level of service. Would thoroughly recommend. Also provided detailed drawings before work commenced.

I’ve used Lahart several times over past 6 years and am always impressed with the attention to detail, thought around design and great booking and follow up. They really are a great company with small family feel. The joiners are conscientious, polite and quick and take great pride in their work.

Custom fitted bedroom wardrobe

Really good job, really fast but not sloppy in any way, clean and professional! Work consisted of house visit to measure then design custom fitted wardrobe in top bedroom loft conversion (which had some awkward angles). Estimated up to 2 days but all work completed within a day to high standard and good quality.

I was handed a leaflet advertising Lahart Carpentry found quite by chance by my client who was moving to London from abroad. Having searched for all manner of storage solutions, from antiques to ready made cupboards in which to store coats and shoes for her Belgravia home, she wanted me to explore all possibilities and asked me to call Lahart. In my initial contact with the office I discussed her requirements and emailed images of admirable boot room carpentry from my research and experience as an Interior Designer. I received exceptional service and enthusiastic response to my ideas and gained extremely sound advice. Without delay, I was given an indication of cost and once budget was discussed, a talented designer attended site to take more precise measurements. Within days technical drawings were provided for me to tweak if necessary and a date to fit was agreed. From the office staff and designer to the talented carpenters who crafted the components in the workshop off site, to the craftsmen who fitted the well designed bespoke piece in just two days, the service from start to finish was outstanding. Both in terms of quality and design, the boot room cupboard is exceptionally good value and worthy of a period home in Belgravia for my discerning clients.

From the first site visit Lahart provided a friendly and professional service. They followed my rough sketches and ideas to produce a first class wardrobe and shelf unit. The work was done on time in a neat and tidy way. Would highly recommend them.

Office shelving and cupboards

Lahart have just created some bespoke shelving and cupboards for my office. The requirements were very specific (because the shelving needed to be sized for a particular purpose), the timing was inflexible, and the order was placed with short lead time. There was therefore plenty of scope for it to go wrong! But it didn't. Lahart impressed at every turn: excellent pre-sales and advice from Julia, creative but no nonsense design from Thais, efficient coordination from Marika and professional and speedy build from the carpentry team.

Disappointing experience

My initial impression of this company was positive. I therefore engaged them to build an alcove unit and some shelves. The carpentry work was completed within the time quoted, and the painting was carried out by what they described as their ‘sister’ company. Unfortunately, days after the alcove unit was fitted, it transpired that one side had not been properly secured, resulting in the paint cracking all the way from the top to the bottom of the unit, and the side of the unit being unstable. I then discovered more problems, including: a pin sticking out of the side, messy joins between the top of the unit and my existing coving, the cupboard doors not being hung straight, and the width of the shelves not being thick enough (meaning they would bow over time). I raised these issues with the company and their response was extremely disappointing: they confirmed they could see from photos I provided that there were issues but gave no apology for this. They did offer to send someone to look at, and correct, the problems, however, the extent of the issues and the tone of their subsequent communications left me with no confidence in their ability to do this. As there were also issues with the painting, in the end I engaged someone else to correct everything in one go. I let the company know this was what I intended to do if I did not hear from them by x date and that I would not pay the remaining balance. I received no reply.

The trader replied (on 12/07/2019)
We are sorry there was an unhappy experience here. Our experience was that there were errors that I acknowledged and I showed we were willing to fully fix them in good time. From our side the client emailed about the errors out of hours on Friday evening. I got catching up on emails from that Friday on the next Tuesday, around midday, Monday being a high-traffic day on the phones and I was not working over the week-end. I had then acknowledged the errors and offered 6 different up-coming times within the up-coming week or so to get it handled. The client had very quickly gotten a third person in to look at correcting the work and said she could not do any of my offered dates/times and that she now wanted to use this third party to correct and to withhold paying the final payment to us on the work. From my side I felt steam-rolled as I was there, responding in good time and with good willingness to make ourselves available to get things corrected quickly but she had already moved to get someone else in and did not make herself available for us to address the issues and chose not to pay us the final payment. This had been the first that I had any idea that something was snagging. There had been no unhappy feedback or bad relations leading up to this. I honestly did not know what to say by reply to the stated intention in that last email and was working a large workload, which didn't help my speed of response. I am surprised that this has been put here. Sincerely, Julia
Quality work and excellent service

We are delighted with the two built-in wardrobes Lahart made for us. The quality of the workmanship is first-rate - both the carpentry and the painting (the latter of which was arranged through Lahart but sub-contracted to another company). We were able to specify exactly what we wanted and Lahart produced drawings very quickly. They were quick to respond to emails and enquiries, and happy to amend their plans to suit our needs. The room in which the wardrobes were built has a wonky floor and wonky walls - the carpenters dealt with this expertly. We had a bit of an issue with a couple of the drawers sticking. I notified Lahart, who sent a carpenter out within two days, and the problem was fixed at no extra cost and with very little hassle. I would highly recommend them.

Contacted Lahart about installing some book shelves and a couple of days later someone visited to measure up, at the weekend, which is great for people who are out working all week. We explained what we wanted and received the drawings within a short time. The first drawings were not quite the right measurements but that was no problem because after a couple of phone calls to the team in the office, new drawings were produced. The work was carried out over 3 days and we are delighted with the result. The shelves are exactly what we wanted thanks to the knowledge and help the team at Lahart offered and the workmanship of the fitters. Thoroughly recommend them.
