Hi David, so sorry I wasn't there when you finished at our property. I would just like to say a huge thank you for doing such a brilliant job. We found your professionalism, advice, courtesy and workmanship outstanding. We would definitely recommend you to our friends and family.

 Many Thanks once again Edwina and Mick

David provided a fantastic service from start to finish. We had contacted many companies and done quote a lot of research and then contacted David. Prompt and competitive quote and David moved things around to accommodate our fairly urgent needs. Throughout David provided great advice and did a first rate job sanding and sealing our new and existing oak flooring. Very professional and friendly. Definitely highly recommended, 5 Stars

Hi David,

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for such an amazing job you have done with our hall and lounge floor. It looks stunning. Wanted to put a recommendation on your website but can't find how? Have posted your web address and Fb link on my wall to friends with some pics. Thanks for all your hard work.


Thank you so much for working on the floor for us! It looks absolutely incredible, and means a lot to us as it's one of the last stages of what has been a long year.
Having someone who takes care and pride in his work and pays attention to the details makes the process a pleasure and I'll certainly recommend you to anyone I speak to about the floor.
In fact, we have already given your details to a colleague of ours in Tunbridge Wells for some restoration work.
Thanks also for digging us out of the hole we found ourselves in with the dodgy concrete floor! :)

Thanks again
