I recently bought an old terraced house in Durham as an investment. My objective was to renovate it and rent it out. With rotten timbers which needed replacing and a damp course required, I quickly felt out of my depth.
Imagine to my horror, that when the aged wallpaper was stripped off, it removed the skim on the walls too. Every wall in the house needed skimming. I entrusted my house and depreciating budget to you, having received a recommendation.
You came out to the house and assessed the work. You provided a reasonable quotation and a prospective start and completion date.
You arrived on time, completed the job, cleaned up every scrap of evidence of you having been there and provided a sound surface for the decorators to finish. I was delighted.
My bill arrived and was duly paid. There were a lot of skilled workmen involved in the transition of the house but you stood out.
I was very impressed with your whole work ethos and would be delighted to recommend you to my friends, family and contacts.
