Customer reviews for this trader
Paul came as a recommendation through a family member. He completed a removal of my old fireplace and a bathroom job that we were finding difficulty getting a tradesman to take on. From the outset he showed great attention to detail when discussing the jobs in question, providing a quotation for the work and on completion of the work. He went to great lengths to ensure that we had the products and the finish that we wanted. He is very friendly, punctual and conscientious and took the time to explain the different steps in the jobs. He obviously is a very talented and skilled tradesman who can do a variety of projects. We will be having him back in the near future to tile our hall floor. Thanks Paul.
Very pleased with the plastering work that Paul did. Left everything clean once the job was done. Would definitely recommend.
If you're looking for a quality, reliable builder, then Paul is your man. Paul has just finished a batch of work for us including a garage conversion, smartening up the utility room and sorting out some outside wall issues. From quoting through to cleaning up after finishing the work, Paul has been helpful, reliable and thorough. He found solutions for all the complexities our old house threw at him, taking the time to think things through to ensure everything not only looked good but was sound as well. He kept us informed all the time, worked efficiently, paid attention to all the details and was a pleasure to have around. He's done such an excellent job of everything that we're going to have him back to do our next project. Would highly recommend.
Paul fitted a internal lintel and concrete shed base for me. Communication was good before, during and after including progress photos whilst I was at work. Quick and efficient taking less time than expected and left tidy afterwards. Happy with the results.
I had a number of quotes for a significant building project that I needed doing at my house. Paul's quote was priced very fairly and he also came up with a number of solutions to issues which would arise that other builders hadn't spotted. The work took a few weeks to complete as Paul works generally alone with a labourer when needed, he's clearly heavily experienced in all trades! As a Police Officer I'm very wary of who I can trust to have a key to the door and complete work unsupervised, however I had no issues with Paul whatsoever. He was hard working, polite, friendly and conscientious of the noise around my young children throughout the work carried out. There was some additional work required during the project, Paul talked me through this and explained the options and costs involved before going ahead, which was very helpful. The end result was completed to a high standard and at the exact specification requested. I will certainly use Paul for any future work and have already recommended him to my family. Cheers Paul!
Paul is committed to providing an excellent service at a fair price. He is highly skilled and experienced, honest and conscientious and shows a genuine interest in the job in hand. He is also a delightful person who is pleasant to have around when work is being done. I would happily use Paul and his team again.
Very happy with the speed of service, fair price and photos and explanation of work undertaken.
A great service all round from quotation to final product.
Paul and his colleague have just successfully completed another task for me. As usual he was conscientious, professional and pro active with ideas to improve things. First class, I wouldn't consider any one else.
We called Paul again as he had recently done some excellent work for us improving our loft conversion. He has become our 'go to' builder: skilled, reliable, helpful and friendly. Our very old house 1893 still has its original staircase which has always been very creaky. When we decided to replace the carpet it became clear it needed some urgent attention! Paul responded very quickly as he knew we were anxious to get on with our decorating project. We half expected the news would be bad but Paul was really reassuring and after 2 days the staircase went from deafening to silent. The transformation is astounding! We are delighted with the job Paul did. He went to great pains to ensure ALL the creaking was completely eradicated. An excellent job. Thank you Paul!
I chose Paul carefully based on the Trusted Trader reviews and I am pleased to say he did not disappoint. Right from the first meeting he gave me confidence that he was the right choice. His price was competitive and his approach was very professional. The quality of the job was his priority. He was very respectful of my new carpets when going through my house and was a very tidy worker. I was very satisfied with the end result and as a result would highly recommend him.
Paul couldn't have been more helpful or more interested in the job of updating our loft conversion by improving the insulation and the ceiling, replacing and repositioning a Velux window, transforming our storage space in the eaves and replacing the floor. He came up with excellent ideas to help us improve the room and maximise the space. He was fully engaged with the project and listened carefully to our needs. He and his assistant were very hardworking, conscientious and cheerful and made an excellent job of our room. Work was completed to a high standard and he kept us informed of progress at all times. They were delightful to have in our house and very respectful of the neighbours in our small community. An excellent job at a fair price. We will certainly hire Paul again when we have another project.
Paul was very efficient at replacing a cast iron waste pipe and has since replaced a leaking toilet for me, and again I was very pleased with the work he has done. I would definitely recommend.
Following the successful previous job, I re-engaged Paul to install a new stud timber frame wall, including insulation in the framework. The frame was plaster boarded and plaster on both sides with skirting boards on both sides. Happy with the result and have had comments since the completion that if you hadn't seen the room before you wouldn't know the wall hadn't always been there. I would use Paul again and happily recommend him based on my experience.
New bathroom installed by EA Home Improvement Solutions. Everything managed from start to finish and Paul did a fantastic job fitting the bathroom - quality workmanship. Would definitely recommend.
I found Paul helpful and clear on the work required and even though the job turned out to be much larger than either of us expected, through no fault of Paul, I was very happy with the outcome. What started as a wall removal and RSJ installation, ended up needing an additional wall building and a floor lower which was completed with new insulated timber joists. Paul also managed the process of building regulations, and even with all the additional challenges of an older house saw all the additional work through with the minimum of inconvenience for us. I would use Paul again and happily recommend him based on my experience.
A good job, well done. Paul was reasonably priced, did a good job and left everything clean and tidy. I would recommend 100%
Just getting builders to turn up and quote can be a nightmare, let alone actually turning up to start. We put our livelihoods, homes and trust in people and skills we know nothing about. We found Paul on Trusted Trader and wanted to use a local tradesperson. You hear so many horror stories and experienced some, so it's a nice change to find one of the friendly good ones. From start to finish Paul's attitude was very professional and a credit to his trade. He did everything he said he was going to do, presented us with professional quotations, great communication and planning along the way, turned up when he said he would, provided details on what to expect and how work would be carried out, was clean and tidy and takes pride in his work and your home. We would have no hesitation in recommending Paul to friends and family and would definitely utilise his services again.
Paul has been a Godsend. We were really struggling to find a builder at the start of the year after we had taken on a full house renovation project. Paul came along and completed all jobs quickly, efficiently and at a fair price. These jobs included some big structural work including taking a supporting wall out and installing two RSJs into the house with the approval of building regs. Paul also helped us rebuild a crumbling dormer which required all the plasterboard being removed and the walls, and roof being insulated completely. He also installed a new flat roof on the dormer, windows, and reinforced the floor of the dormer. Paul is an honest, genuine trader who does what he says he will do quickly, with minimal mess. I am so grateful to Paul for helping us turn a wreck into a home. Could not recommend more highly.
Paul did an excellent job moving a wall back and making good in our front bedroom. Can't fault his work at all and he kept everything clean and tidy at all times. A very friendly, informative and knowledgeable chap we wouldn't hesitate to use again.
Solutions by name, solutions in practice. Paul did a great job for a tricky compact loo and utility. He can achieve a good quality finish.
Paul has done an excellent job removing our old stone fireplace and building a new one from scratch to house a multi fuel stove. Very professional and every effort is made to keep dust and disturbance to a minimum. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paul for any work to friends and family.
Lovely man, very clean, would highly recommend him.
Today Paul completed a small but important internal task discussed when he did an external job he did for me in December. He approached this with the same diligence and professionalism as then. No mess, fair price and good work. Thanks Paul.
Tip top bloke doing a tip top job. Full of good advice with a professional approach. The solution to my classic car port problem is first class. Totally recommended.
Paul has practically lived with us over the last year and has done a whole raft of work including installation of a new bathroom, rebuild and finishing of our kitchen, building our porch, installation of steelwork to make our lounge open plan and various flooring and plastering jobs. Paul is considerate, tidy and methodical and is always offering ideas to improve the outcome of the work being done. I would recommend him and would definitely consider asking him to do more work in the future.
Paul did a great job relaying my bathroom floor. When a problem arose, Paul was able to suggest and provide a solution. Professional and sociable, no mess. Would recommend to anyone.
I use Paul for all my building requirements, either maintenance of the old or construction of the new. Always professional, always proactive and easy to have a working relationship with. Thanks for your latest work and will no doubt be seeing you again.
Paul Shaw was polite. very sociable. and very professional. Paul did a good job without any fuss. And did what I asked of him. Will have Paul again if and when I need any more work I need doing.
We are very pleased with Pauls work. His attention to detail is fantastic. Details such as sympathetic brickwork and positioning mean we are very happy with the end product. We have used Paul multiple times and shall continue to do so in the future.
Excellent work, communication, and tidiness on site from Paul and Paul. COVID secure and always polite working, despite it not being the best weather for undertaking our flat roof replacement. Well done!
Paul worked in a professional manner observing social distancing and mask wearing in light of covid. We are happy with the work that was done and it was in line with the requirements of our quote.
Paul installed a steel lintel for us, great job no complaints. Reliable, Punctual, professional and tidy what more could you ask for, excellent choice.
Paul and his team did a great job and it was exactly what we wanted. They were polite, on time, cleaned up after themselves and did a very good job. I would definitely recommend to others and for future work for us.
Constructing the lower terrace was not the first job Paul has done for me and it will not be the last. Professional, proactive, hard working and friendly.
The 1st job Paul did for us was to open up a fire place for a log burner. The fire place he built was 1st class. We decided to refurbish the kitchen. Paul did an excellent job installing patio doors, and plastering all the walls. The work was completed on time. Excellent service. We would highly recommend Paul.
