“I was very pleased with the advice I was given before the job, and the clear pricing policy, I was warned that there may be difficulty in removing the wing nuts if they were corroded but luckily that was not the case. John checked before coming and bought all the parts with him, giving details of the cost before hand. He was tidy, efficient and pleasant.”

Erection of a shed and two water butts fed from the shed's gutters at my allotment

Erection of a shed and two water butts fed from the shed's gutters at my allotment

“I was very pleased with the standard of work. It was a very wet and windy day but Clive and his workmate Terry worked carefully and thoughtfully - for instance, the shed was supplied without a door catch (just a plate for a lock) so they made a door catch off their own bat. Clever work with the water butt guttering too. The supplier wouldn't deliver to my allotment, so the handymen also had to take the shed in parts to my allotment. This was also done with care and without mishap. Quite a big project but everything done cheerfully and to my satisfaction - thanks!”

“I would recommend Mike without any hesitation. He was efficient, hardworking and his workmanship was excellent. Prior to the job, Mike advised two different options for the base and was very helpful discussing the options of paint and woodworm treatment. Mike turned up exactly when he said he was going to and was very efficient texting me to let me know his start time each day. The paperwork and record keeping of each day's work was second to none, with photographs of progress and products used. Mike was friendly, polite and very professional and we are delighted with the work.”
