Peter is an AMAZING tradesmen! He arrived on time, I explained what was what & he got stuck straight in. He came so well equipped with all the necessary tools, he even has his own compact hoover, in which he used to tidy up as he went along. Peter got the tasks done super quickly & efficiently, he even had time to give me a free measurement for my kitchen & living room floor space, & helped me look into how much flooring I would need to get the flooring done. I also kindly asked Peter if he could assist me with some extra bits in regards to my aquarium set up, & he was more than happy to do that at a small added cost. Their was a small hiccup with the bedroom door lock, on the evening of, I called Peter, & he immediately arranged to come back next morning to sort it, which he managed to do in under 10 mins. Overall I am completely satisfied with Peter’s work,& would highly recommend him & his company On Point Home Improvements. Look forward to working with him again. Thanks Peter
