Top Job from a great little company.

We needed our bathroom and kitchen fitted having been let down by another builder. Lee was able to accomadate our time frame and put in extra hours above and beyond what we agreed and expected. The finish and attention to detail in both the kitchen and bathroom were exceptional. The project was completed on time and on budget. I have already recommended Lee to my friends and family. We will certainly use Lee again for any further projects.

Agreed quotes for whole house interior redecoration and replacement kitchen units together with replacing damaged kitchen chipboard flooring. Decoration was acceptable although no fittings eg door handles, power points etc were removed in the process. Had agreed with Lee for him to check for leaks beneath chipboard prior to replacing with ply and to provide adequate support. Later a leak was found, the new ply had to be lifted, the leak repaired and ply reinstated with suitable support, which had not been done even though it was agreed with Lee. Communication was a problem throughout. Job took longer than anticipated

Firstly as I state to all my customers - the reason we take a 40% deposit on commencing works and the final 60% installment on satisfactory completion is to give our customers peace of mind that if there is a problem on completion we do not expect payment until the customer is completely satisfied with the works. On this occasion the job was completed on 1/10/2018 and payment was made in full a day later after a site visit where you signed the works off which confirmed both parties were happy with the finished product. At no point were there any issues mentioned such as bouncing floors and potential leaks. One week later you contacted me regarding an issue with the water hammer implying it was our doing. A day later at both parties convenience I visited your property and rectified the issue at no cost to you even though this issue was occurring in the bathroom in which we carried out no plumbing works at all. Again at this visit to the property nothing was mentioned of any issues with our works carried out previously. Referring to the leak: When we lifted the kitchen floor and exposed all central heating pipework we checked thoroughly for leaks and in doing so monitored the boiler pressure for over a week which would have dropped considerably had there been a leak and no leak was found therefore the kitchen floor was replaced. This was a rental property and had there been an ongoing leak it would have shown itself a lot earlier than over 3 months after our works had concluded and this review has come to light. At no point was I approached by you fix any of the above issues, and as I am sure you can appreciate we cannot take responsibility for something that occurs over 3 months after their work has finished. I am saddened that you have taken to a public platform to criticise our company over issues that were never brought up on completion of works, but please rest assured if there is anything I can do to help you please feel free get in contact.

Having the bathroom radiator and tiles installed by Martin Koch of Mrk1 Plumbers fall onto the floor and cause injury, it was a relief to find LWA willing to come at short notice and effect a first class repair. I'm sure there's a place for them in heaven. Adrian Danson

Great Job! Thanks to Lee for our lovely new bathroom and front room door! Lee gave us a competitive quote and was always available when we had questions regarding the best design for our small bathroom. We are very pleased with our work and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!

We recently purchased a new home which needed extensive refurbishment throughout. We choose to go with LWA because we had used them a while back on some work in our flat that we rent out. Lee scheduled the work and all the different trades required with ease and the job ran extremely smoothly from start to finish. Lee was always on hand keeping us updated and giving advice where necessary. All in all I can't thank Lee and his team enough for transforming our home to a standard we are delighted with. Great work and thoroughly recommend!

We had a new kitchen refit, Lee and his team completed the work on hand in a professional and tidy manner, so much so that I wouldn't hesitate in recommending LWA to family and friends. Lee stuck to his estimate that we thought was reasonable for the work completed. Should the need arise for building work in the future we would feel confident employing LWA again.

We had some decorating on the outside of the property, a new kitchen design and refitted. We took some great advise from Lee on how our kitchen would be best designed for appliances and use of space. He was very open with costs and gave us a good understanding of things that may come up during the works. The outside of the property looks great and the neighbours have commented on this already! We have passed LWA details to them! Overall a great experience with Lee and his team, thank you!

Disappointing

We went with Lee and his team based mainly on the positive reviews on this site, unfortunately the work did not live up to expectation. We had bedrooms and hallway fully re-plastered, electrical sockets moved and skirting boards replaced. The plastering was acceptable although the finish was messy in places (the plasterers left radiator brackets on the wall and plastered over them instead of taking off the wall). The electrical work seemed to be of a good standard although we had to have Lee return to fix a broken back plate. The finishing off however was poor, a door frame was nailed gunned back on where the plasterers had removed it for some reason and left with a large gap round the edge, skirting boards were left with about half of nail holes unfilled. The finish round the edge of a door frame was messy and no attempt was made to match a replacement architrave to the rest of the house. Communication was also poor, a number of decisions were made without consulting us first and we did not see Lee on site to supervise any of the work for the first two weeks. The plasterers even commented they hadn't seen him. When I made these comments to Lee I received no response, although he did come back to fix a couple of issues I specially asked him to fix. We won't be using the company again.

I am sorry you were not able to discuss the below with me when I returned to the property to replace the socket back box. I advise all of my customers to pay the balance in full only when they are 100% satisfied. When plastering a room, for the best result the architrave around the door frame needs to be removed, to ensure the walls are straight to the door. Unfortunately, when putting old architrave back (as requested by you) on new plastered walls, you may not get the best finish (uneven surfaces, etc.) as I had advised. The holes you refer to are from previous fixings when the house was built and not from us. 1 day prior to completion, you contacted me to replace missing architrave, the area had already been plastered therefore caused some disturbance which then needed re-filling. With the architrave being original to the property we were not able to source the exact match in such a short period of time therefore we fitted the closest match available. We spoke on several occasions throughout the day as you and your husband where at work, we were asked by yourselves to use our judgement/experience on any issues that may have arisen during the job which we did on a couple of occasions of which entailed extra works, which as a goodwill gesture I didn’t charge for. I visit all properties every other day, unless required daily or requested by the client, there was no request for this by yourselves. Please feel free to contact me directly and we can discuss the above.

Lee and his team decorated our front room - painting, making good the walls and moving a plug socket. The finish was very high, they kept the room extremely tidy and Lee was always responsive. We have now asked Lee to quote to decorate our dining room and would not hesitate to recommend him.
