About Us:

We offer expert work at competitive prices and take pride in the quality and finish we provide. We always communicate well with clients and start and finish on time.

We love kitchen and bathroom fits, indoor/outdoor carpentry and window fitting, but no job is too small.



We're a small family run business in the Bristol area, growing well but making sure we don't grow so fast we can't look after our clients! We're really proud that we have never "done a builder" and started a week late before "finishing" the job with a promise to come back later.

- Carpentry and joinery

- Kitchen fitting

- Bathroom fitting

One speciality is painting uPVC windows with specialist paint to freshen up old pvc and give it a classic painted wood look.

Even one coat of skim over artex can be too heavy. to be honest (sorry it's bad news) at this point your best bet is scraping it off and skimming over the boards. obviously check there's no asbestos in it first.
Might be worth telling them now just so there's a problem "on the record" but that smell's normal and can easily take 4-5 days to go, in extreme cases even a couple of weeks. great info here:
I'm not sure fitting the bath over the tiles is the problem exactly - sounds like just a badly fitted bath. if it's leaking through to the kitchen he shouldn't be complaining about being asked to come back and fix the issue and if he doesn't tell the council and trading standards and take him to small claims - whatever the reason, water leaking through to the kitchen means a bad fitting job has been done.
It's very difficult to diagnose this without more info i'm afraid - can you provide a bit more?
Between the plaster on the wall and the ceiling? as long as it's just in the plaster and not a sign of structural movement it's fine like that, only a decorative issue.
