Customer reviews for this trader
Although very busy Julian made time to investigate a water leak in our main family bathroom, one he himself didn't install. After two visits he would accept no monies for his time and effort saying "it's just a bit of sealant". Some years ago Julian built us a wet room, a somewhat complicated project involving support beams and removal of existing features. His work is of a very high standard and coupled with the fact that he is an amiable man. I would not hesitate to recommend Cressbrook to potential customers.
Cressbrook re-configured and modernised our bathroom and son's bedroom. Works were completed to a high standard using quality materials. Good communication throughout and to budget. Happy to recommend.
Julian co-ordinated the creation of an open plan kitchen from utility room, hallway and existing kitchen by removal of 3 internal walls and installation of RSJ. Julian and team were clean, tidy and friendly workers - we received great service from start to finish from the design through to completion and were quite satisfied with the price charged considering the amount of work undertaken, in fact we have booked Julian and the 'Cressbrook' team in for another building project next year!
Cressbrook recently completely fitted out our new utility room with cupboards, drawers, sink, work surface and custom made shelves to become a dispensary for my herbal practice. Julian initially spent time with me working out exactly what I wanted and discussed how to maximise the space available and what would be the best materials to use. I needed to store a lot of different herbs but also to have them easily accessible. Julian made a custom made set of shelves on top of storage drawers which has created a fantastic workspace for me to use that also looks really professional. I was really delighted with the completed project and also the professional way in which Cressbrook carried out the work. I appreciated having regular communication with Julian throughout so that I knew exactly what was going to happen and had a clear timescale. Julian's team are very considerate and helpful who were willing to work around other things going on in the house and take a pride in their work. The price charged was very fair especially considering some of the units were handmade. Many thanks Julian and team! - I'm thoroughly enjoying using my dispensary, IT'S GREAT!!
Julian and his assistant did a great job of replacing our kidney shaped bath for a full walk in shower complete with pull down seat to assist my disabled husband. It has proved very helpful indeed. They were both courteous and thoughtful and left everything clean at a very good price.
I had all my windows replaced, one shower room renewed, one created from scratch and my kitchen completely modernised. The service I received was excellent. Julian's experience in when to do what was incredibly helpful and his experience in kitchen and bathroom design meant the best possible use of each space. Julian co-ordinated all the trades required to complete the work on the house. This meant they arrived in a timely manner and the jobs flowed smoothly. That was invaluable. If I hadn't had that service I can imagine I'd still be chasing plumbers, electricians and plasterers! Julian's team were clean and tidy workers. At the end of each day tools etc. were tidied away and the working area vacuumed. This really helped to keep the dust down. All the trades were knowledgeable and friendly. I was consulted at every stage of the refurbishment and always knew when to expect the next piece of work. Having, what amounted to all the key aspects of a house updated or created is quite a stressful experience but Julian and his team made it as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend Cressbrook for a professional, friendly and knowledgeable service.
I contacted Cressbrook to help provide me with a quote for an insurance claim. It was to cover repairs/replacements of damage to my property following a break-in. Julian promptly dealt with my request. He was very polite and professional and offered advice on products and repairs. Thank you. Would use again.
Julian has always been helpful with phone advice on a couple of occasions prior to undertaking our bathroom refit. His communication with us and with his team is excellent.
Very satisfied with the work of Julian and his team, all of whom were courteous and efficient, and a pleasure to have in the house.
We have had brilliant service from Julian at Cressbrook who oversaw a wonderful renovation of an old property. Thorough, professional and friendly, we have been very impressed throughout. All tradesmen involved were thoughtful to neighbours and completed all jobs to a very high standard. Would highly recommend!
Julian at Cressbrook has done several jobs for us including a major en-suite rebuild. He is always helpful, super knowledgeable and the finished work was 5*. He is also happy to help with smaller maintenance jobs. Thoroughly recommended
Julian and his team did an excellent job in making our house into our home! We had a complete downstairs remodel and lots of issues came up along the way. Julian dealt with all of these in his stride and always had a solution. It took longer than expected but largely due to our house and its secrets, not the good kind! I would recommend Cressbrook 100%, both for the quality of the work and the guys doing the job.
