Testimonials

  • Renovation Great Langdale

    Jim Troughton has done various jobs for me over the last 12 years, commercial and domestic, including two major bathroom renovations. I've always found him to be totally professional and very competent. All jobs were completed on time and to budget and the quality of work is exceptional. Jim has employed the same small team of quality tradesmen for many years, which means you can be confident of getting the same high standard of work on every job. Jim is happy to take charge of the whole project, leaving the customer with the peace of mind to know that the job will be done properly and the site returned to the customer in a clean and tidy condition – very important in Cumbria where the job may be a holiday home where the owner cannot be on site continuously. I am currently undertaking a major bungalow renovation and I had no hesitation once again in trusting Jim and his team to do the work.
