    "We had a long list of small, fiddly repair jobs around the house - small pockets of rot in difficult corners etc. The weather was a pest and the job took a bit longer than planned. But, we were completely satisfied with Jim's work. His repairs blend in with the original 1920 house beautifully. He is a very tidy workman, very pleasant to deal with and he sticks to budget. I have booked him for next summer already as i have more tricky little jobs on my list. Highly recommend."

    "Jim carried out a full bathroom renovation for us and did a great job. Our house was built in the 1940s so the original walls etc were all out of plumb. Because of this, extra time was required to get the new wall linings nice and straight, especially with regard to fitting the new shower unit. Jim took all this in his stride, going the extra distance to make sure the project would be successful. End result being a fresh and clean bathroom that's a pleasure to use. Although we added a few 'extras' into the job as first contracted, Jim's final bill was still under budget. If we have any more building projects, Jim'll be the first person we call. And it helped that Jim also has a great sense of humour!"

    "Its hard to find a trades person who is skilled in so many different things. It made it so much easier to only have to use one tradesman. Jim done the carpentry, Gib stopping and painting. All the work was done to a high standard and Jim was always very pleasant. Unlike some tradesmen he also thoroughly cleaned up after himself. I already have him booked in for another job"

    "So refreshing to find an efficient and HONEST builder. Highly recommend Jim to anyone needing some good professional work done. Jim is efficient, pleasant and a very conscientious worker. Very relieved to have found him after a not very pleasant experience earlier in the year with another not so honest tradesman."

    "Jim was always cheerful. Put covers down to protect the floor and tidied up each night. Co-ordinated other tradies needed on the job. Kept to budget well which was great as we had a strict budget. Also, timeframe was pretty accurate. Would recommend for building work. "

    "Jim did a great job replacing a custom under-sink shelving unit (was too complex for me!) and adding some lovely porcelain tiles onto a sad lounge floor to sharpen everything up. He answered quickly, turned up promptly and finished on time. Would recommend for any handyman work. "

    "Jim did an excellent job in repairing our rotten floor in our en suite. The job was completed to a very high standard. Jim was conscious that this was going to be a messy job he did his best to keep the dust to the one area and cleaned up each day which we appreciated.

    Jim was very professional in his communication before he started working on our floor he told us the day he would start and approximately when he would finish, he would also advise the approximate start time each day of work.

    I wouldn't hesitate in using Jim for any future jobs and would recommend Jim to anyone else looking for home improvements or repairs.

    "Very pleased with the way work was carried out, within budget. Jim went out of his way to find matching weatherboard. He also checked with us when the unexpected obstacle arose (like a concrete strip had to be broken- to complete the job and Jim was able confirm with us before hiring a jack hammer) also another bonus was, Jim was able to do the gib stopping as well. This was a great help as it saved us from having to work with another contractor as we would have required. Thank-you again. Will definitely recommend."

He has a high work ethic and delivers an outstanding results on time.His strengths are that he just gets on with the work and often comes up with great new ideas.
