“Mark has helped us recently with 2 bathrooms, new flooring and fitting new skirting boards as part of our house renovation. He has been brilliant throughout, going about his work with little fuss despite encountering a few issues along the way. Mark took the time to help us come up with ideas of how best to use a slightly awkward a bathroom layout and also carefully checked to ensure that the bathroom fixtures that we were ordering were suitable and the correct size etc. He is always happy to answer questions and to discuss what is feasible. We have used Mark for a number of jobs over the past 5 years and he is now our “go-to” whenever we have a new project. Thanks Mark!”

Professor JW, Blackheath, 21st January 2019

In the time Mark worked on the project he very generously took on the role of project manager. I was not prepared for the unexpected complications involved in a project like this, the difficulty in finding people to do work in a timely manner, nor the lows the project took me to. Mark’s experience, professionalism and conscientiousness kept the project moving. All the work he did for me is outstanding and his support and dare I say friendship lifted my spirits when unexpected issues with the structure of the flat tested my resolve. I am completely delighted with the finished flat and owe nearly all of the success to Mark’s creative abilities and support. I can not recommend Mark highly enough.”

Mrs RW, Guildford, 12th October 2017

“Thank you Mark! We are completely thrilled with the work you’ve carried out for us. So professional & efficient. Well priced! Clean & tidy. No problem unsolvable.

We are happy  to give you the highest recommendation & look forward to having  you carry out further work for us in the future.”

Mrs GW, Guildford, 25th September 2017

Mrs SW, Guildford, 4th September 2017

“Mark took on our full house renovation project and we are absolutely delighted with the end result. Going through all the various tenders from other firms, it soon became clear Mark was the most realistic, straightforward and trustworthy of all the various quotes we saw, with great credentials. Once he got started with the project he was there all the way and was effectively project managing on site with the suppliers that he also set up for us – all excellent too, which helped us massively as we were both at work. We faced a few problems and he was there on hand to help out or suggest a solution. Once the project was completed he also came in and resolved any snagging issues to full completion, even changing a washer on the shower weeks later. Quite simply Mark has been absolutely tremendous, we’re thrilled with the end result of the refurbishment and he’s the only builder/carpenter we will ask for future works again. If you want to get a reference for his work, you’re welcome to come and see our flat any time.”
