I can recommend Richard and Singh highly. I have had a problem with an electric loft ladder and I was let down badly by being sent the wrong part and then the tradesman who was supposed to come back and fit the correct one was unobtainable. Richard said on the phone that they liked challenges and this job certainly was one but they coped very well, re-installed the broken rung and now are trying to fix the bit that was broken because of being sent the wrong part. As Richard said, ''they like challenges" and they succeed. They are reliable, friendly and very capable.

Richard worked on fitting a new lock and handle on one of the bedroom doors. He arrived on time, did the work at the quoted price and cleaned all the mess he created.

I found this company via local recommendation and I am so pleased to add them to my list of local traders. Brothers Richard and Terry run the company and although locksmithing is the starting point of the business they actually have a multiplicity of skills. I employed them to supply and replace some new skirting boards and also to do some painting, as well as to fit a new lock for our patio doors. They will tackle all sorts of home maintenance jobs; small and large. They took enormous care and they worked incredibly hard. I was very pleased indeed with the results. They are also are a pleasure to have around and their charges are fair and transparent. Not exorbitant at all. I will be definitely be using them again and so I rather hope they don't get too busy on the strength of this recommendation.
