Don't take our word for it

Mr P. Launton "Just a quick email to say 'thank you' for resolving all the snagging this week. Can you pass on my thanks to Sean. The standard of his work is excellent. He phoned me on Wednesday morning and I talked him through all the snags. I returned later the same day and found each job completed to a fantastic standard. You would never have known that he had been there, with everything clean and tidy. It's much appreciated."
Mrs B. Ascot "Thank you for organising the plumbing work earlier this week. I am glad I asked for Sean to be present as he does know his stuff and it was all completed without any fuss and as usual put back to a good standard. I have said it before but he is a credit to your company... Finally I wanted to say that Rachel and Laura did their utmost to help me over a problem by speaking to Technical on two occasions. Although it was not a snagging issue they put themselves out as I had encountered problems with additional building work I was carrying out on my garage. They understood my dilemma particularly as my builder had had to stop working and I really appreciate their efforts."
Mr B. Wheatley "Many thanks for your help in replacing our kitchen tap. Your very nice man has replaced the tap in a very professional way and we are now happy bunnies!"
Mr N. Binfield "George came to do some maintenance work on Friday at our property. I would like to express how pleased we are with his professionalism and attention to detail. He was courteous and respectful. He is a true asset to your company."
