DO NOT USE!!! I just want to warn fellow mn's not to use this man/company for any building/carpentry work. He has left our bedroom in a state of dissaray and has run off with a large deposit! It is now going to cost us more than originally quoted to get put right. He was advertising on free index and had good reviews! Please don't make the same mistake as i did! :-(

Hi. I know it was 2 years ago but this man and his team caused me considerable grief as well in 2015. I was renovating a terraced house in cardiff. He had done a minor few jobs for people I knew ,laying floors et. After several quote I Emoloyed him to extend the Kitchen into a another room remove walls add add Raj’s. Build a patio and extend outwards. He seemed knowledgable and easy going , and we got on very well ( I am
In my 50,s and 20 years ago had my main home
Built from ground up so had some Insight). I then asked Him as the house was empty to do a loft conversion extension and rewriting plumbing. Basically a full renovation of a terraced house . He was fine to start prompt on time returning calls and did very well in some things but as time passed he never seemed to complete any room he had started and on. Loft , Bathroom
Kitchen, W suites. Mean while payments were asked for work done and by the time I had the courage to challenge him re when would
He finish xyz we fell out. I had to fire him
and had to employ others to finish and put right all that was left. Cost me maybe and extra 15k. . It’s all fab now but I am Deeply out of pocket. A terrible experience. Partly my fault for being so trusting and gullible. Can’t believe people can be so calculating and evasive. I check now and again what he is up to. I hope he gets what he deserves.
