Redecoration of banisters and stairway.

"David, as usual, was thorough and carefully "repaired" the mess left by the developers. He patiently sanded down all their messes and the end result was extremely pleasing. We have since booked him for more works in the forthcoming months. First class service and a conscientious approach to the job in hand. Would have NO hesitation in recommending his services to anyone."

Fixed rocking toilet and loose tiles surrounding it. Fixed safe to wall. Hung six mirrors, coat hook rack and three lampshades.

"David was courteous, efficient and a pleasure to have in the house. He worked quickly and quietly. What was a smallish loose tile job turned into a rocking loo which he fixed and made good. He was professional and very capable. I would recommend him highly."

Renewed dangerous steps and added a paved area

"I can't recommend David Basterfield too highly. He gave very helpful advice and came up with ideas which were both practical and aesthetically pleasing to solve my garden problem. He advised me against an option which I initially wanted which would have been extremely expensive and wouldn't have worked. The work was carried out to a very high standard. I'm very happy with the result and I will certainly use him again for other garden projects."

Creation of a concrete base for large shed and all groundwork for the widening of an existing brick driveway
