Organised for Martin (and Team) to do some work for my parents as he has done previously for us. The work was carried out in a timely and professional manner, and he also fitted an extra little job in organising for someone to fix their front door.

Needed a new back gate as the old one had rotted. Chose Martin first as he had done work for us before. Arrived on time and had the job all done as we wanted. Also he explained what would be needed and not needed beforehand when he came to measure up so we knew how it would look. We totally recommend Martin for his work.

Martin undertook some work for us, he installed a loft ladder, replaced the hatch and made good. Some piping had to be moved for this job, as well as some electrical work. He also converted our 2 front bedrooms to one big one, and re plaster skimmed both bedrooms. All work was completed to a very high standard, Martin kept us informed of any changes required and did the job in the time he promised. We are very pleased with the work undertaken and would recommend his firm without hesitation.

Martin took over building our balcony after we were let down badly and robbed of money by other builders. He and his subcontractors were very efficient, courteous and completed the job to our complete satisfaction.

Martin came to reveal the bath/shower area- a small job. However he found rotten floorboards and joist from an on going leak. He and his team carried out major repairs to the floor, cloakroom and hall ceiling,which also suffered from the leak. He organised a brickie, plumber, electrician and plasterer. All this worked was squeezed into his already busy schedule. The problem was sorted efficiently and to a very high standard. He was always on time and tidied up at the end of each session. I would certainly recommend Martin and wouldn't hesitate to employ him again. He helped us out of a terrible problem. Thanks Martin and Michael

Martin and Michael have just completed a comprehensive refurbishment of our kitchen. Together with their tradesman colleagues they have completely transformed the kitchen and we are absolutely delighted with what they have achieved. They listened carefully to what we had in mind and, not only did they accurately translate our ideas to the finished item , they guided us and advised us on how we could improve them even further. The job was completed on time and to budget and nothing has been too much trouble. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Martin to other potential customers. He truly provides a 5 star service. They were even fun to have around!

Having seen Martins work carried out on our new offices I had no hesitation in using his services to carry out work on the needed to my own home following a move to Wigan. With a bathroom that needed stripping back to bare brick, damp on the ground floor and numerous other issues around the house, the service and quality of Martin's work has given us a home we can now live in. Both my wife and myself would have no hesitation in recommending Martin for any type of work required.

we cannot praise Martin and his team highly enough!. This was a complicated job that Martin spent a considerable amount of time beforehand, planning. They did a fabulous job to an extremely high standard, and we are delighted with the results. They were all pleasant, punctual and tried to keep the mess minimal, cleaning up as much as possible each day. We have used Martin before and we will use him again. We know that he is very much in demand and he has a waiting list, bit it is definately worth the wait.

Martin spent a considerable amount of time working out a solution to a difficult design problem. This involved removing a wall to reduce the size of the bathroom to allow construction of an en suite shower room without losing too much space from our bedroom. New walls were built and the en suite and new bathroom were installed to the highest standard by Martin and Michael his apprentice. Martin consulted us throughout the project and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Plumbing, plastering, painting, tiling and installation of lighting were carried out by contractors who were all equally conscientious, pleasant and polite. It is hardly surprising that with so reliable a trader a wait may be necessary, particularly for a big job like ours, but it is well worth being patient!

Martin is a builder you can have complete confidence in and importantly fully trust. The quality of his workmanship and his professionalism are both to the highest standard. Martin spent time with us advising us about the most suitable products for our home and the various options we could chose from. Once ordered, Martin kept us fully informed of the install date and time. We would recommend Martin to anyone and without hesitation use his services again.

We initially asked Martin to install a partition wall, replace a window and take out a fireplace. Unfortunately, on the day before he was due to commence work, we discovered an area of wet rot in the floor as well, which needed immediate attention. Martin and his apprentice completed all the work, including the floor and attending to the damp-proof course, to an excellent standard, and we are very satisfied with the result. We would certainly ask him to do other work on the house, if the need arose again. We have no hesitation in recommending him.

From the moment of first contact Martin has provided a professional service. He has provided an excellent service which indeed was above my expectations. I was a little nervous finding a reliable person but soon felt confident and at ease that I had made the right choice. I definitely would use Martin's service in the future. Both Martin and his apprentice were helpful and clearly valued good customer service. The standard of work was excellent and would recommend others to get in touch with Martin for any joinery or building work. Thanks Martin

The work carried out by Martin is always excellent. He is very honest and takes pride in his work. He acts as project manager pulling all other contractors together.
