Very good work
Customer Service
Martin did a very good job in rebuilding and making safe a stone pier outside the front of our house. I am very pleased with the result. I have used Martin on a number of jobs during the last 18 months or so. I have found him to be approachable, friendly and reliable. His work is of a very high standard.

Whole house renovation, completed to a high standard.
Customer Service
Martin and his team have done an amazing job with our renovation. After having problems with our previous builders, he had a big task on his hands, not just finishing a whole house renovation but also rectifying shoddy work from the previous builder. He provided us with a very detailed quote; due to our tight budget he sat down with us and discussed ways we could save money to get the job done without cutting corners. He was upfront with us about any additional costs as and when they arose. Where we were unsure about details regarding finishes, the advice given always turned out to be spot on. We will definitely be using him again for more work in the future. We cannot recommend him more highly.

Martin and his team completed a full bathroom renovation. Martin kept me updated throughout and was always open to any questions I had. The team worked efficiently and kept the place as clean as they could which was amazing. We were never in the house because of work being so busy but Martin was happy to communicate via text/emails and calls. We trusted them with our house and they were respectful. Martin helped clear the old bathroom out and dealt with it for us which was great as we weren't sure where to dispose of everything. Martin also did some work in our kitchen and came back to fix a leak that was taking place in the bathroom - he immediately fixed it with no issues. I would definitely recommend them to do any work to your house. Thank you Martin & team for the great work you did!

Quick attendance, fair fix.
We had a leak from the bath plug, the waste pipe was leaking due to poor materials when installed. The plumber arrived quickly after arranging an appointment, kept good telephone communication as I was away at work, with options for a fix - one short term, minimal impact, and one longer-term but with work needed to gain access to the affected area (which was my expectation). We opted for the easiest fix, rather than pulling up skirting boards and tiles to gain access. Plumber provided good advice, my wife reported that he was nice and respectful.

Renovation of living room
Customer Service
Martin and his team constructed a new doorway; filled in a large gap from previous open plan; leveled the floor at the end of the room and other smaller jobs. Lastly the room was painted. The work was completed as agreed in the schedule and as per budget. At our initial meeting with Martin, he listened to what we wanted and gave us practical advice. He is always friendly, honest and professional. Whilst the work was being undertaken Martin was always on hand to review progress and responsive to discuss any changes or additions. Also he kept us informed of what was happening. He and his team worked very well together, cleaned up daily and generally kept the disruption to a minimum. Towards the end there was one minor job which took a few goes to resolve and thumbs up to Martin he saw it through until we were satisfied.

Guttering repair and adjustment
Customer Service
Came round quickly to evaluate the job. Quote arrived the next day which was very clear about the work to be done. He also phoned me to explain his recommendations. The price was fair and he committed to get the work done quickly. The team turned up promptly on the specified day. They were polite and performed the work to a high standard. I am pleased with the result and would recommend them highly.

Pleased to find versatile local help
Customer Service
Martin promptly gave us a quote that we considered fair. He and Mike patiently replaced the guttering with our particular extra specifications though the weather was against them. We are pleased the work is done and Martin has told us to let him know at once if anything goes wrong. We look forward to having his help with other projects and are happy to recommend him.

Repair of damaged rendering
Customer Service
Dealing with Martin Crowley was efficient and straight. He called around promptly and presented a competitive quote and starting date. The old rendering was stripped and re plastering was carried out in stages having regards to weather conditions. The work was neat and everything was left in a very tidy condition. We felt confident dealing with this company, and we are completely satisfied with the work.

From the initial quote to completion Martin and his team were exemplary.
Customer Service
Martin arrived early for both the quote and to carry out the work so didn’t leave us wondering if these builders would actually arrive or not! Martin stated that the work - which was ripping out a built-in wardrobe, encasing a downpipe and plastering to match existing work, would take 2 days. The first thing they did was to cover bedroom furniture and then protect the flooring through to the hallway. Material was removed using 40 litre builders’ gorilla tubs. After removing the protective covers, the whole area was wiped down & vacuumed! (Yes I have the photos of the builders on their knees) At one time there were three builders on site and all respected our home, neighbours and the communal area carpets and lifts of the apartment block. We loved the final completed work – I will use this company again.

Great work, helpful and efficient.
Customer Service
Martin was very helpful and friendly when he came to quote for the repair work needed, due to a water leak and a roofing problem. The work was carried out very quickly and to a high standard. Would definitely recommend.
