LMB should be avoided at all costs! Ignore the fake reviews you see on curated websites - we and other current customers will testify to what it is like to work with this company.

It is not clear what service LMB are offering. Project management was non-existent, and communication appalling. If we were to do this again, we'd manage it ourself - LMB only added stress, cost and considerable time to the process.

They refused to refund an accidental overpayment until work was completed - 6 months later! They are greedy and/or have serious cashflow issues. Corroborating other reviews, every single tradesman that visited complained about late and underpayment from LMB.

We had a severe leak when the roof wasn't secured, and two subsequent leaks at the hands of incompetent plumbers. Once we had paid 90% of the contract, work stopped entirely for a month and only resumed again when we threatened court action.

Behind these headlines lie a multitude of minor annoyances. While some tradesmen were friendly and competent, others were rude and left our property dirty and in some cases damaged.

Lee Murphy represents the worst of the problems that the company have, although when Joanna became involved we did see an immediate improvement.

Angel, funny enough, LMB is the only one which I haven't used! And I did hesitate recommending someone I haven't used - but I have heard very good things about him from others who have used him and I have seen his work, because we did get a quote from him, but have decided not to go ahead with our loft at present because of £££££.
