Do you give any guarantees?
My quality standards are very high, but in the very unlikely event of any sub-quality workmanship
(which has never happened to date) I am happy to guarantee to repair any problems that were
caused by my or my employees' fault in relation to the work quoted for. I have never had to return to

better coverage, ease of use and value for money than
others. I am happy to provide advice on
choosing the best materials.
Are materials included in the price?
I provide quotations for labour only, but am happy to provide a materials quotation on request.
