Total re-rendering of large front and side of end terrace house. Addressing of damp issues occurring inside the house.
I cannot recommend the workmanship of this company enough. Right from the very start they were knowledgeable, approachable and obviously experienced. They worked very hard and were reliable and friendly. The work wasn't as straightforward as we'd hoped but they discussed all their recommendations and brought in extra workers when needed. They were flexible and very pleasant. We enjoyed having them around for cups of tea! Reuben was brilliant. He took obvious pride in his work and we are thrilled with the results. Everyone on the street has said how good it looks. He suggested when improvements could be made but did not force his decisions on us. His expertise was very valuable as we had consulted many other people to limited success. He was very neat and tidied up after himself. We would definitely recommend his work and this company to anyone. Thank you so much for the brilliant job.
