Jack Collins Tel. 07903-031164

Jack is locally based ( Croftdown Road ) who, with his team, has recently carried out various painting, decorating and general repairs jobs on my house in Bromwich Avenue - painting the outside, installation of a new garden path, laying new laminate floors in two bedrooms, and decorating them, new doors on our kitchen units, and redecoration + general repairs on both bathrooms. His prices are very reasonable, and his standards are high. Being locally based is a plus - we were able to schedule these various jobs at times suiting us both. I strongly recommend him.

SPS Timber Windows

If you want double-glazed timber windows bespoke for you, which can get planning permission, with more glass and less wood (to let more light through), I recommend Simon at SPS Timber Windows. They have been around using the same staff for decades and did a really efficient, high quality job for us. There was a 6 month waiting list! Dec 2018 @ 23 LA

Heating House, Anthony Argent
079 3913 1106

Since 2012 Mr Argent has done the following work for me: installation and service of a Megaflow hot water cylinder, installation of a Honeywell programmable room thermostat and replacement of a faulty pressure expansion vessel. He is reliable, turns up when agreed, courteous and clean. The work done is technical so I am in no position to judge it but things seem to work.

The joiner's name is Ben Williams and the company is G W Refurbishment
07458 174185

I'd like to recommend a joiner (and also general refurbishment company) who we employed to restore the staircase (fit new spindles and handrail) at my mum-in-laws house in Bromwich Avenue. The work was of very high standard and he was immaculately tidy and thoughful - covering all carpets and ensuring there were no trip hazards throughout the work.
