    "In line with all of these reviews and having had Matt do work for us before we knew exactly what we would be getting. That is a very punctual, polite, professional and highly skilled tradesman. As usual attention to cleanliness and clearing up was first class. Thanks also to Dan who is equally polite and tidy, both a pleasure to have in our home. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their work and will definitely use them in the future."

    "This is the 2nd time I have used Skimfast, and once again Matt did not disappoint. Matt and his team are very professional from start to finish. Matt provided a clear quote and job was completed to an excellent standard including some additional work needed. Matt and team were on time arriving and completed the job ensuring they tidied up and cleared. Will be using again for more work we have planned. Highly recommend."
