    "Steve from Emerald Carpentry and Building Services did a fairly large garage conversion and associated work for us to accommodate someone who is recently disabled. He understood his brief and when changes were necessary from the original plan it was discussed with us. Unlike most British builders he is punctual with good communications and very cost competitive. In plain vernacular he is not a rip off merchant. I have been undertaking various building jobs in the UK and in Europe since 1984, and I will have no hesitation in engaging Emerlad Carpentry again for other jobs and will be delighted to recommend the company to others."

    "Emerald quoted to fit a door into a pre-fitted door lining, with the assumption that the lining was fitted correctly. We accepted this quote but how I wish we hadn't ! Quality was OK, but not as good as I've had before from other carpenters. The guy didn't have a nail gun with him, so could not fit the door stops. They added an extra £50 + VAT to the bill for unscrewing one leg of the door lining and inserting 3 packers (which I supplied as he didn't have any). Apparently their "standard charge for fitting a door lining or adjusting one" is this amount, which they had failed to mention when quoting or before making the adjustment. This extra work only took ten minutes. I have tried to negotiate with the company to agree a fair price for the extra work but they have rejected this. Instead they have advised a 10% penalty fee if I don't pay, and then a debt collection company! May I suggest that you ask for all costs and potential adders to be quoted beforehand."

    Trader reply: "We were pleased with the feedback you provided to our carpenter on completion of works that you were satisfied with the work and your remark that our quotation was highly competitive in comparison to the other quotes you had received. We are sorry you do not feel the price for the door frame adjustment and rebating is relative to the amount of work which was completed. The quotation you were provided clearly stated that should the new door frame you had installed by a previous carpenter need adjusting there would be a cost implication. Our carpenter identified immediately that the frame was unsuitable for the fire door you provided and explained it would require adjusting and rebating, he requested your approval to undertake the extra work which you granted. We always ensure our customers provide their confirmation before undertaking extra works. We feel the £50 charge for the frame adjustment and rebating was in line with the amount of work undertaken. Our carpenter needed to adjust the frame by 45mm and rebate the frame to take the fire strips to install the fire door correctly and safely. Emerald Carpentry and Building prides itself on providing quality work which we feel is reflected in our 5 star reviews."

    "I needed a door reversed and I couldn't believe my luck in getting this team to do the work. Steve is just great. I've never seen a person in my house do the hoovering except for me or the missus. He actually hoovered up the mess and everything! And took off his shoes! They are so sound and hard working. He explained the process, explained what could go right or wrong and asked me how I wanted to proceed. I accepted the risks and he went ahead, did as much as he could that day and came back the next day with extra stuff to make my life easier, like adding one of those door stops into the wall so it wouldn't smack into the paintwork. Overall, the job was done really quickly, efficiently, no mess and no dodginess. I got an invoice and paid by bank transfer instead of cash, which I like because it makes me feel like everything is above board. I couldn't have asked for a better door reversal. These guys are the best I've ever used. Best in the business, I would even say."

    "Steve and his team removed a load bearing wall, fitted a structural steel, made good and also did some carpentry - building a cupboard. They were excellent throughout, did a great job and communication was also good. Highly recommended."
