What my clients say


"Mark has undertaken a number of projects for us, ranging from re-roofing and replacement panels of a badly leaking shed, restoration of timber gates, re-modeling of kitchen units including removal of a fake chimney/extractor hood, complete restoration of old oak window frames, including filling, sanding and re-waxing to reveal their inner beauty! plus numerous decorating jobs. We would wholeheartedly recommend him for the quality of his workmanship - he's a real perfectionist (rare these days), he always seems dedicated to the job and he's also a nice man to have around, completely trustworthy & reliable."


The Milnes




gardening volunteers "The group is small but dedicated. Everybody has given so much of their spare time during the last year.
Mark has been fantastic, organising extra help from his friend Bob. I was there to support them, they worked non-stop for four hours then Mark stayed behind to clean up. Mark was really tired last week so we agreed to take it easy. Next minute he was cutting all the hedges around the wet weather area, a massive job. He widened the path by about 5ft. And he still managed to bring his famous apple cake and coffee! Such a small group but they have made such a difference."


Local school gardening volunteer coordinator




"I am wheelchair bound and was unable to access my garden. Mark researched the options thoroughly and provided a great, cost effective solution, recommending a suitable type of decking and fitting it all in a couple of weeks. I can now use the garden and cook on my barbecue - all our friends are really impressed with his work and I would happily use him again."


Chris Cloke & Louise Parkes




"We would highly recommend Mark - he made a wonderful job of the outside of our house. Mark is hard working and meticulous. His attention to detail is second to none, surpassed only by his amiable nature and patience. He is an absolute pleasure to have around."


Cheryl & Nick Baker




"I was involved in renovating a flat a while ago. It was in a very poor condition and had not been decorated for a few years. Mark cleaned it, sorted out the damp problems, repaired the defective plaster work and quite a few other issues and then redecorated throughout. The standard of work was very good & transformed the appearance of the whole flat. I can recommend his services."


Richard Nash of HuntandNash




"Mark has been fantastic to work with, understanding exactly what I needed and wanted, giving me great advice and inspiration, and an incredibly hard worker as well as a wonderful guy to have around. The results were even better than I imagined, I would absolutely recommend him and will be calling on his services again!"

"Mark is diligent, reliable, hard-working and conscientious. We're really pleased with the decorating and repair work he did inside our mother's house."


Paul C





"Mark is highly conscientious and went above and beyond in helping us renovate our guttering and garage. When bigger firms told us they couldn't source the materials we needed, he researched and came up with the goods! He was meticulous with the details and thoroughly trustworthy."
