Malcolm kept us informed when he would be able to give a quote and then when he would be able to start work and always arrived when he said he would. All work was undertaken to a good standard and every evening things were left clean and tidy. Work was completed on time and the cost was as quoted. - Mandy

Malcolm hung 7 new internal doors and made 2 special to fit. Excellent workmanship, clean and courteous. Would definitely use him again. Thanks Malc - Valerie

I am so very pleased with Malc's work. I expected a door to give a little storage space under the stairs but he built a folding door which has opened up the entire area for me. He is a great carpenter, a lovely person, and always cleaned up before he left. I would certainly recommend him. - Penny

Excellent attention to detail and finishing. Project was managed with a minimum of fuss, I was informed of difficulties and they were addressed without a hitch. Other trades sub contracted were of a high quality. I always felt confident that the job would be done on time and without too many issues. Been in the kitchen 2 weeks now, and have not had any snags to deal with. - Jasper
