November 2018 - LOFT CLEARANCE/BOARDING AND LOFT LADDER AND HATCH - "Paul has just completed clearing/boarding our loft and fitting a loft ladder and hatch. Great piece of work. It was completed on time and to an excellent standard. Paul is very meticulous in his approach to the job and his personable manner makes him easy to work with. He ensures that all work areas are kept clean and tidy. I would thoroughly recommend him. "
Thank you Paul for doing such an excellent job.
All the best,
January 2018 - "I found Paul’s website by conducting an internet search, after reading his reviews which were all good I requested a quote for a loft ladder and boarding. I work long hours so struggle for time in the week, Paul was more than happy to accommodate this and agreed to come and have a look at the job, he was on time and explained everything to me in great detail. We agreed a date for the work to be completed and again he was very accommodating, he was very through and very tidy. I am extremely happy with the work he carried out and don’t know how I have lived without a loft ladder for so long. I would recommend him to friends and will use him on the future for jobs" - Louise
September 2017 - "Professional, courteous and excellent workmanship"
I approached Paul to provide easier access to my loft and the service I received deserves the highest possible recommendation.
Firstly Paul responded to my initial online enquiry the same day and came out to advise me on my options with no hard sell at any point. He explained each option clearly and provided recommendations based on his experience and my building structure etc. taking great trouble to ensure I understood everything. It was obvious that his prime concern was that I achieved the optimum solution at the best possible price but not to pressurise me at all.
Paul then provided a clear and fully itemised quote so that I could choose what I wished done - again no hard sell and I felt completely confident in accepting. He arrived punctually each day, ensured my house was kept clean and tidy throughout and that I experienced the minimum disruption. He was happy to provide additional quotations for insulation and wardrobe shelving and to carry out this work at the same time.
Paul takes an obvious pride in his work and in ensuring that his customers are completely satisfied. When necessary, he checked with me to ensure I was happy with how the work was progressing. He was professional and extremely courteous throughout and I am 100% satisfied with his work.
April 2017 - "I am delighted to provide a reference for Paul’s Carpentry.
I initially invited Paul to advise me on options and then quote for a job to install a loft ladder and boarding. From the outset it was apparent that Paul is a conscientious individual and the source of excellent, objective advice based upon many years of experience. His recommendations were shrewd and the price quoted for doing the work was very reasonable.
When it came to doing the job I was struck by the fact that Paul is meticulous in all that he does, he uses high quality materials, has great expertise and takes immense pride in his work. The results are consequently first class. While the latter is the most important aspect, it is also relevant to observe on the little things such as the fact he minimises both mess and dust by cutting all timbers outside, that he assiduously cleans up after himself both outside and inside and that he takes particular care to ensure the client is fully briefed on each step of the work and all aspects of the end result. He is also courteous, industrious and a good time keeper.
On the basis of my experience, I will be using Paul’s services again and am pleased to recommend him to others." - Oliver Delany OBE
March 2017 - "Paul fitted a new loft ladder and extended the hatch to make access easier. The work was carried out very professionally and to a high standard. The carpentry on the architrave is excellent. Every care was taken to protect our carpets etc and all debris taken away after. We are really pleased with the end result and would highly recommend Paul's services." -Kim, Sunbury
Feb 2017 - "As I am an NHS nurse I work irregular hours. Paul installed my loft ladder and fitted in around my work hours. I will be recommending him to my colleagues." - Jenny, Hampton
Dec 2016 - "My 3rd house move and Paul has fitted out our loft again. He has been a pleasure to have working in the house again with him working right up to Saturday." - Theo, Sunbury
Sep 2016 - "Paul boarded the whole of my loft and made the loft hatch bigger all in 4 days. He came to the house at 7am every day. Great Work! I found Paul through the Northfields Friends website." - Noel, Northfields
July 2016 - "Paul came to my house and repaired my chipboard floor. All done in just 2 hours. A great tradesman!" - Dolat, Kingston
January 2015 - "It was my very good fortune to see Paul's van parked up in Twickenham one morning. I made a note of his number and gave him a call to come and look at my ancient loft. I had been trying to find somebody for years to re-insulate and board out my loft and to put in a new ladder but it was impossible to get anybody to even come and have a look. Paul came around with 24hours of my call and gave me an immediate quote which I was very happy with. I work away from home and was very happy to leave him a key so the job could be done whilst I was away. Paul did a brilliant job, he was finished when he said he would, kept within his quote and was clean and tidy even taking away the rubbish. I was also having some other work done in the house at the same time and I know that he helped out there when he could. I could not recommend Paul enough and he has made going up into the loft a real pleasure. I will definitely be using him again for any carpentry work that I need doing in the future." - Bernie, Twickenham
May 2013 - "Paul is polite, punctual, efficient, professional & reasonably priced. One early job was to repair a broken cupboard in the garage – looks good as new now. Fixed several wardrobes including a faulty Ikea one. Recently re-laid loft lagging which had been very sloppily done by original house builders & installed excellent loft ladder to replace dangerous old one. Carried out an extra insulation job at no extra charge. He also replaced some mouldy sealant around the kitchen sink which looks better than new! Most recent job was to replace a rotten side section of fascia at front of house which original builders had done in 2 sections – Paul measured up a single panel & repainted it to match rest of fascia. Our only regret is that we didn't get to know Paul years ago." - Anthony, Hampton
February 2012 - "I first got information about Pauls Carpentry from Google. Last year Paul fitted my loft ladder and swing down hatch in just 2 1/2 hours which meant I only had to take a very little time off work. I then had him back again to board my loft which he did on time and budget. This year I have used his carpentry skills to build cupboards and shelves which he designed and built himself. Having his own waste carriers licence he removed my old rubbish all at a very good price. I would not hesitate to recommend Paul and I am sure I will be using him again." - Shelagh, Twickenham
July 2011 - "Paul has recently installed a loft, fitted a new lid to the water tank and insulated it and built a computer workbench in the spare room. I have been very pleased with all the work he has done. He is polite, punctual and his prices are very reasonable and the price for the job is always the price quoted. He is a real find amongst tradesmen and I would recommend him to anyone needing carpentry jobs done round the house." - Janice, London
November 2010 - "Paul did an excellent job in clearing, boarding and lining my loft, and installing a ladder and hatch. He set out clearly at the start what was involved and the associated costs. He planned his working hours to suit me - making very early starts and always arriving when he said he would. He kept me fully posted as the job progressed and went above and beyond the call of duty in clearing rubbish and disposing of it. I liked the fact that Paul visited to quote for the job and then carried it out so I was confident throughout that I knew I was dealing with a properly qualified, insured and licensed professional. Paul will undoubtedly be my carpenter of choice for future jobs (I've already booked him in for the next one) and I would have no hesitation in recommending him. I would be happy to provide a reference." - Jennie, London
"Paul worked hard in sweltering summer temperatures to insulate and board the loft of our new house and to install a loft ladder in time for our removals men to take all our stuff straight up into the loft and save us tonnes of space in the house. His work was of a high standard and conducted with the utmost reliability and minimum of disruption. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for this and for smaller jobs which he’s since carried out with the same good cheer and quality workmanship." - Claire Smith, Sunbury
"Since Paul insulated and boarded our loft the difference in the heating bills has been very noticeable. In today's Green Society this is something everyone should do for the good of the planet and the good of their pocket." -Gill Rees, Hampton
"Paul's approach to the work that we asked him to do was superb. Everything was done when he promised, at the price he quoted and with no mess or disruption. I would recommend Paul to anyone who needs any carpentry work done in their house." -Joe Cummins, Hayes
"Before Paul fitted the loft ladder we hardly ever went up there. Now it is like we have an extra room in the house that we can use to store items we don't use often but when we do need them we can get to them easily." -Karen Dedman, Teddington
