“Julian provided excellent and professional service. He was totally reliable and kept me well informed throughout the job completion process, as I live overseas. My tenant was overjoyed to have someone in the house who knew what they were doing rather than ‘hoping for the best’. The job was completed on time and to a high standard. I would recommend Julian unreservedly…”

Dr K Dean – Oxford


“We needed to remove some kitchen units and tiles. I found Julian from his
website, and contacted him, and described what we required. His responses
where clear, honest and timely – this gave me confidence. When he arrived to
do the work, he clarified what was required, picking up on things that I had
not considered, then did the work to a good standard, and cleaned up.
Finally his rates were very reasonable. I’d have no qualms about using his
services again, and would recommend him…”

during a storm, and we no longer lived locally. Trying to sell our house
meant it was additionally urgent to get the fences back up! Julian was
professional, prompt and did the work perfectly. Just what we needed as a
then ‘remote’ owner. Would happily recommend him…”

  1. By T Kakkad, East Finchley on

    I have been struggling to find someone to fix a kitchen swing out corner unit mechanism that wasnt working. Various people had looked but couldnt really work it out. Julian, even though he hadn’t worked with 1 of these units before, persevered and felt confident he could fix it. Which he did. he clearly seems to have an eye for detail and is somewhat of a perfectionist. Based on this and a couple of other quotes he provided for me, I will be arranging for Julian to do some more work and will be recommending him to others.
