Looking for a carpenter to hang 5 doors and a couple of other jobs.
Any recommendations would be much appreciated .

Hi all

We'd also be interested if anyone knows of someone. We're having our windows replaced and we need help taking down some shutters and blinds and then putting them back up again once the windows are in. There may also be work to do to the plaster around the window frames?

The work is scheduled for the 29th Jan so we need someone asap!

Possibly a job that Rob Lancaster (07950190530) could tackle. There are other recommendations for him on this site.

Thumbs up for Rob. He's a very skilled carpenter and we've used him many times

Yep - we also use Rob for all odd jobs - reliable and affordable!

Thanks to everyone who replied.

We called Rob, he came out on Sunday to quote and we've given him the job. He seems like a very nice bloke so far, and I'll put a review on afterwards to let you know how we get on.

Thanks again.

Sorry, I meant to update you all sooner.

Rob has been pretty fantastic so far. He's put up our 2 shutters and we have him coming back in May to replace a radiator for us.

On that note - I gave Rob the wrong measurements for the radiator, so we tried to take it back to Selco ourselves to do an exchange (Rob very kindly gave us his Trade Card number to use to take it back). As it turns out, they won't exchange, just refund and then you re-buy. Out of desperation, we rang Rob on a Sunday afternoon, and bless him, he came all the way over to Selco and helped us swap the radiator!! Luckily he happened to be working anyway or I would have felt even more guilty than I did.

Anyway, all in all a top bloke!
