Alister installed 11 internal doors and dividing doors plus reconstructed an external doorway into the garden. His quote was provided promptly and the final invoice was exactly as quoted. He was a punctual, tidy and efficient worker. We are very pleased with the quality of workmanship throughout. We would highly recommend him.

The latest job completed by Alister at our home has been the boarding of the central area of our loft. This required the use of adaptive materials to suspend the boarding above the deep loft insulation. The finished result is very pleasing. It has transformed the area into very useful space and we are arranging for him to return to board another loft area soon. Previously, in December, Alister fitted a new loft hatch and loft ladder for us - also very well done.

Alister is a pleasure to deal with. From the time I requested a quotation to completion of the work I was kept fully informed about times, what work was being done and if there were any adjustments to be made they would be discussed before the work was carried out. Alister was in my house over 4 days and I felt completely happy leaving him there while I went to work. The work I had done included hanging an internal door and fitting a lock, re-configuring 2 built-in wardrobes (removing the old sliding door structure and replacing with bespoke opening cupboard doors) and building a superb under stairs cupboard and shelving unit as per a picture provided. He is very clean and tidy and his work is to a very high standard. All old materials were removed each day and I came home to a spotless home. I have already booked in the next job with Alister and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Excellent service from start to finish, good communication throughout from getting a quote to carrying out the work. Alister fitted 8 internal doors and was punctual, and efficient, cleaned up afterward and the end result is great quality. I would definitely recommend Alister and we're already considering another job for him to do.

Alister spent a considerable time reviewing the job and explaining his recommended solution to me. As an older woman on her own, I appreciated this. I felt at all times that Alister knew exactly what he was about. The fence was OK but some of the posts had given way. The answer was to support each post with a well dug and concreted in short post which was then attached to the original post with 2 metal plates and 2 coach. A photo. would have been helpful here. He also solved a problem to do with indoor shutters, one of which scraped the wooden floor. A lack of knowledge on the part of the installer which Alister recognised immediately and then put right. A simple solution but one for which I was very grateful. I would thoroughly recommend Alister to anyone.

Alister attended my property promptly and issued a quote for the work, in a very quick time, the quote was also an excellent price. The seven doors were of metric size, and difficult to obtain, but through his perseverance and diligence, he obtained the required doors and established a time and date to suit for the work to be done. His time keeping is absolutely impeccable, and all the work done to the highest order, area was left clean and tidy afterwards, and answered all questions professionally. Overall, a superb experience throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend Shakespeare Carpentry to anyone. Thank you Alister for all your hard work.

Quick to respond, view and discuss job requirements and provide a quotation. The job was carried out on the date provided on acceptance of the quote. Work was carried out to a high standard, very tidy, and cleaned up thoroughly after works were completed. They ensured we were happy with all aspects of the job before leaving. No hidden extras or surprises when the invoice was submitted. Really pleased with the service and a polite and courteous guy too. What more can you ask for. Would have no hesitation in recommending.

Great service fitting new internal doors to our home. Quick to quote and book a date. Gave us all the information we needed to order the right parts and didn’t push to sell us any extras. On the day turned up on time. Fitted the doors well and cleaned up leaving no mess. Very happy with the service and would definitely recommend and use again.

Second time we have used Alister, so had no hesitation in contacting him again. This time it was to supply and fit 5 internal doors. The work was completed in 1 day, to an exceptional standard and agreed price. The old doors were taken away too. Could not fault the workmanship in any way. The doors look absolutely brilliant. Thoroughly recommend Alister and have already asked him to replace some fencing.

Once again Alister has done a great job. He fitted some noggins in my conservatory, various skirting, architrave and boxed in some awkwardly placed pipes. He always turns up on time and his workmanship is of a very high standard. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him to others.

Alister, arrived on time - He repaired the fencing, fitted 2 new posts and installed a pair of Bartley gates which he had ordered alone with the door furniture. The gates are lovely far better quality than I thought they would be. Great work, quality service I would definitely recommend him.

Almost two years after his last job fitting interior doors for us, Alister returned to fit three more doors. This time they were half glazed interior doors and the door stops had to be removed and replaced. All in all a very neat job, undertaken in the prescribed time (just half a day) and billed according to the estimate. Alister is a professional, tidy and friendly worker who gets on with the job in hand.

I have just used Alister to supply and fit 11 internal door in our hall and landing. His attention to detail was very impressive, his workmanship second to none and he arrived when agreed. He cleaned up as he finished, you wouldn't know he had been everything was clean and tidy after he finished. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alister to anyone and would certainly use him again if and when the occasion arises
