Dear David,

I renovate property for a living and am pleased to have found you and all the really useful stuff you do, which is normally difficult to find. I found the paid for advice helpful and will definitely use you again as I encounter problems along the way. I saved a fortune compared with the Specialist quotes that I received from so called experts - keep up the good work.

Best Regards
Henry Pendleton

Dear David,

Your website was a fantastic source of information and you told us exactly what we needed to know for our particular problem. Communication was excellent. Money well spent - I will come back for more paid advice every time in future, rather than waste money on the wrong products as I have in the past.

Many thanks
Natalie Andrews

Dear Angela,

Hi. I was very pleased with your complete service and actions connected to the sale of my property. I have now had the damp problem rectified at a fraction of the cost suggested by various Builders.. A thoroughly good customer experience - thank you. I'd prefer to pay for expert advice with an independent like you - at no time did you try to sell me anything!

Kind regards,

Arthur Dangerfield
