Hi all, hoping that you will be able to help me with a recommendation. I am in the process of buying a flat and need to find a local carpenter to build and fit some wardrobes and fit a new kitchen. Anyone used a carpenter that they can recommend?
I had a guy come recently called Iain Parker. He came and looked at the space, asked us what we wanted, drew plans there and then (and amended them to our requirements). He then came back and built the whole thing from floor to ceiling, wall to wall, supplying all materials, etc. It looks absolutely amazing and it is pure craftsmanship. His prices were amazing too and he was clean, tidy, reliable and did everything he promised to an exceptional standard. We were thrilled with his work.
Ian's number is 07990 594 995. I am no relation BTW and have nothing to do with him other than being a very satisfied customer.
This was great timing for me as I was also looking for a carpenter in January to build some wardrobes in my flat. I called and got quotes from all of the above. In the end I went with Iain as he gave me the most competitive quote. He has done a great job, exceeding expectations and creating a fab built in wardrobe in a really difficult space. He is also amazingly clean and tidy, leaving the space immaculate every evening; friendly and trustworthy - I gave him my keys to come and go while I was at work; punctual; communacative; hard working - basically everything you could ask for from a carpenter in your home. I have since asked him to do a couple of other tricky jobs for me and he has come up trumps. Couldn't recomend him enough.
Just called Iain Parker, he was really polite and personable on the phone. He also seemed to be very organised. Although he is booked up untill August, he suggested coming to my property to view and discuss requirements next Tuesday, draw up plans and discuss materials to be used, after which the work will commence in August. Considering how many people I have called concerning the carpentery work that needs to be done in my flat, Iain has so far been the most focused and sensible. I will come back to this forum after the work has been completed to give an update. Thanks to all those who recommended Iain Parker.
