Increased loft hatch opening and installation of loft ladder

Verified Review

Paul was extremely courteous from the minute he arrived and was careful to ensure sufficient protection was put down before starting work. The work was completed to an excellent standard and a full demonstration of the ladder operation was given once he had fully cleared up. Paul had confirmed the cost and anticipated completion time in advance and he was true to his word! It was evident Paul takes pride in his work and is keen to provide the best customer service. We would happily recommend his services.

Paul is extremely competent at his job. We'd hoped to move the loft hatch but he explained why it wasn't possible and gave us a fair quote for simply replacing the loft hatch, installing a ladder and a 5' strip light. There was no mess and no fuss. He completed the work in under 3 hours and charged exactly what he quoted. I'm still impressed by his work ethic.
