Kitchen unit update (Kitchen fitting)

“Ivan fitted our new kitchen units in one day and we are pleased with the result. He was flexible with doing the work on a weekend when we were available. He was resourceful with making the units fit into the space well even though the store had changed the dimensions of their products since our old kitchen was fitted. We were kept informed of any issues throughout. ”
Damp proofing to kitchen and bedroom walls (Damp proofing)

“He showed interest in two jobs I had posted. I shortlisted him for both and we arranged for him to visit, inspect and quote. He didn't turn up and also didn't call to say that he wouldn't. Have not heard from him again.”
Wooden garage structure needs amending (Garages & Sheds)

“He was excellent. He knew exactly what he was talking about, did the job and left the site clean and tidy. (He took one day whereas others has quoted 2men for 7days Reasonably priced. Very helpful. only two things that could have been done better:- the wiring for the moved light was very untidy and he painted the wood he'd patched in by the door in Black paint instead of my black wood stain so it matched all the rest. ”
Fire place lintel (Fire places and chimneys)

“Ivan did an excellent job at incredibly short notice. He knew precisely what he was doing, and I am thrilled with the finish. I will be using him again and recommend him highly.”
Unfinished Bathroom renovation (Bathroom fitting)

“After having had a nightmare with the previous builder I was very pleased when I found this company on this site. I did receive other quotes but Ivan came across as very professional, reliable and knowledgeable. Pleased with the job and will definitely be using this company again. Thumbs up!!”

Water leaking inside from single storey extension (Roofing)

“Ivan undertook a few jobs for me, removing a ground floor toilet, fixing a roof leak and insulating and boarding my loft. All of which were completed to a high standard and very efficient work. Ivan is very good and would recommend to anyone, I would definitely use again, also very honest and trustworthy, something which is hard to find these days”

Restore fireplace to house a wood stove (Fire places and chimneys)

“I asked Ivan to open the chimney breast to make space for wood stove and log store. Before the chimney breast was open, no one knew what's in it. But my engineer's instinct told me that, among all contenders, Ivan knew what he was talking about the most. On the day of work, he came with the right tools and completed the job in no time. Ivan is a very pleasant person, so is his assistant who kept the work place tidy. Good team. Excellent in my case.”
Re-plastering faulty plaster (Plastering)

“Ivan Buxton did various plastering jobs at my property, removed & replaced a damaged ceiling, & gave it a plaster skim. All the work was done as he'd said it would be, & within the time he's suggested,& at a lower price than others who quoted for the job. Cleaning after the work was very thorough, & most importantly, the quality of the work was excellent. ”
Pulling up, tidying up and relaying existing patio ()

“Brilliant job, pulled up and relayed patio and shingled path in a day. Quite a large area too, so we were very pleased it was done so quickly. Is exactly what we wanted and Ivan and his workmate were both timely, professional and got the job done as discussed. Would definitely recommend.”

Move pipework in kitchen & check thermostat on shower (Plumbing)

“Ivan originally only offered me advice for the job (talking to a supplier re my shower to confirm even the worse case scenario meant that a whole shower replacement wasn't necessary) which was re-assuring when talking to other plumbers. Despite being a long distance from my house, he also offered to carry out the work when he was in the local area.Ultimately i did not take him up on his offer as a more local firm carried the work out, but his advice was invaluable when obtaining other quotes.”

“Ivan Buxton responded to my request for quotes on a range of repairs to a property that I have placed an offer on recently. He turned up at the house on time, in fact, he was early, and was prompt in providing me with the quotes via email later that day. He was also honest about work that did not need doing, which was reassuring. His quotes were also very reasonable. If I buy the property I will cetainly be in touch with Ivan to undertake the work. ”
