Congratulations to our surveyor Gareth for a wonderful testimonial from one of our clients -

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the recent work on our window. I'm really pleased with the result and was also very impressed with your team. The guys who did the installation were a pleasure to have around.
Additionally, I had someone over yesterday to measure up for new shutters. He asked me who did the window as he said the measurements are absolutely perfect and in his experience that is very rare to see. So I think Gareth in particular is probably to be congratulated on that.
