We are very conscientious about our work, communications and customer satisfaction. This is reflected in the high number of positive reviews and recommendations we have received from a broad range of clients. Many of these reviews are posted on unbiased, independent websites, and we have collated some of them on this page, along with links to the original sources.


A Work of Art: Well Impressed

“Marcus did an exceptional job repairing our exposed oak truss and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. The job itself was a real challenge, as it involved propping the entire roof and removing 3 quarters of the truss before replacing with new oak, but despite this the quote from Marcus was exceptionally competitive. Marcus was very reliable and had great communication throughout, for example, we were unable to be onsite whilst the work was ongoing so Marcus kept us fully updated with photos and movies of the progressing works, which was a nice touch. To summarise, we are delighted with the work Marcus has done and will be asking him back to more work in the future.”  (Oak Roof Truss Replacement)

Ian Henry, Water, ROSSENDALE (

Friendly, honest and helpful

“I was looking for someone local and honest to give me an opinion on some cracks that had appeared as well as a damp problem. Marcus was able to take a look the next day, and made a couple of repairs there and then. I’m now awaiting a quote for some skirting and for some damp repairs. Very friendly and reliable, and was happy for us to ask lots of questions and understand what he was doing. Really appreciated!” (Penetrating Damp)

Polite and Helpful.

“Recommended tradesman, turns up on time and a man of his word. Polite and helpful taking photos of damage on roof so you can see what needs doing. Refreshing to meet someone who wants to work.”  (Chimney Flashing Repair)

Ben Lamb, Leyland, PRESTON (Thomson Local website)

Honest and Reliable.

“Our old kitchen was to be replaced with a mix of new units and matching older units. Nothing had been measured to fit so needed organising by someone who knew what he was doing. I found Marcus on this site and would recommend him to anyone. He rang me within the hour of me placing my job on here. I looked his firm up online and could tell he was the one for the job. Check his site. He is a worker – gets on with the job, listens to the customer – again and again!, offers advice and cleans up after himself. He is polite, easy to talk to or suggest things to – even if you’re worried about doing so – he is honest and reliable. I can’t praise him enough for the way he handled our job. Thank you Marcus (and Stanley)! …and NO, I don’t know them!”  (Kitchen Fitting)

Clare Garrett, Fulwood, PRESTON. (Service Magic website)

Excellent, professional job.

“Excellent, professional job. Work started on time and completed within the one day originally planned for. Price for the job was very competitive and agreed closely with an estimate provided by the surveyor who identified the need for the repair work.” (Replacement of defective lintol)

High Standard, Competitive Price.

Very Pleased.

Thoroughness and Quality.

“I want you to know we appreciate the thoroughness and the quality of the work you  did, – and getting it finished on time despite the additional complexity”  (Internal Structural Alterations & Bespoke Fireplace)

 Excellent Customer Service.

“Marcus arranged a fitter to carry out the work and he called me as arranged. The chap came round to assess the job and ensure that I had purchased the correct fire for the type of flue that I had. The gas fitter arrived on time with his son to carry out the job, they were efficient and worked hard and tided up after they had completed the job. Colin (the gas fitter) was clearly experienced, they did an excellent job and for a reasonable price. In my opinion they ticked every box for a job well done. Later that evening Marcus called me to check that I was happy with the work that had been carried out and asked if there were any problems. Excellent customer service! I wouldn’t hesitate to choose them again if I ever required any other work to be carried out. I highly recommend this firm.”
