“Dan arrived on time and advised us that all door seals were intact and that the door was not leaking but that we had a condensation problem and to fit a trickle vent to the adjacent window”
“Phoned Dan at 21.00 hrs and he asked us to send a photo of the shattered window. He then went to collect boards and within 30 mins of phoning he arrived. He then knocked out the old glass and boarded up the window to make it safe as it was a large window. We waited while Dan ordered the new unit and then he came back to fit it. Dan is a polite and friendly lad who went out of his way to help us. He has done a very good job and we highly recommend him.”
“Gave an estimate over the phone. Arrived promptly and with the correct parts. Was concerned not to leave a mess and tidied up completely. Window was back to full working order for the agreed price. Would definitely use Dan again.”
“Superb service … went above and beyond. Very friendly and helpful. Refreshing to deal with someone so professional and courteous.”
