Alan has undertaken many jobs for me recently including refurbishment of a garden gate repointing of a kitchen extension repair of a leaking W C and renovation of a garden shed window. He has also completed the exterior painting of my house. At all times Alan was polite and helpful often suggesting alternative methods of repair to reduce cost but to be just as effective. His work is of a very high standard. He always attended when he promised and responded without delay to Emails and texts. I recommend him highly with no reservations.


As always, great workmanship from Alan. I can't recommend him enough. Keeps in contact and is friendly and helpful. This time round Alan constructed a small fence for me. Its beautiful. Cannot recommend him enough. Thanks Alan.


Alan is the best; superb quality, entirely reliable/trustworthy and very reasonable rates. Until he is able to clone himself, we will continue to prefer to wait until he has availability for the many jobs round the house which need doing


Very happy with the job Alan did for me - he was punctual, very neat and tidy, and his price was very reasonable. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.


Thanks for doing a good job Alan. Thanks also for being respectful of me and my property.
