These days everyone is bombarded with warranties, guarantees and promises, which often down the line are worth less that the paper they have been printed on.
We are different. We are a solid and well established company that provides a written guarantee for a period of 12 months for all the works we do. This isn't just a piece of paper that we give away willy nilly. We have our standard terms and conditions that are written in a clear and easily understandable language. No small print. No hidden agenda. We honour our promise and if something goes wrong, we are there to rectify it at our own expense.
We are also fully insured up to £2m for any damages, up to £5m for any accidents and up to £1m for legal costs. This gives us and you a peace of mind that shall something go wrong, we are all covered whatever happens. We have never ever had to claim on the insurance so far and it has been over 30 years since we've started our adventure with construction.
Everyone heard dreadful stories of cowboy builders, botched jobs, collapsed buildings and unfihished projects. It is extremely hard these days to find a solid company that delivers on their promise. We have made it our goal to be not only fully insured and provide a written guarantee, but also to take full ownership of projects we work on. We are accountable and reliable when it matters most.

When making your decision take all of the above into account. It will make it easier and will drastically reduce chances of hiring a cowboy. Always do your own due diligence and use common sense. Ask as many questions as you need until you're satisfied and never rush it. You will hire someone to work on your home and you will very likely spend a substantial amount on it. Take your time, it is an important decision.
