Don’t just take our word for it
Tony Dunn of ATD Refurbishment was recommended to me when I was looking for someone to carry out work on one of our flats. He carried out the work on time and within budget - and to a very good standard. Tony turned up on time, but just as important, he rang to advise of any changes to schedule. He also contacted me if the job needed anything that had not been pre-agreed. I was so please with the ATD Refurbishment service, that I took them on as our maintenance people. ATD have carried out numerous jobs for us since - ranging from clearing blocked drains to complete internal and exterior re-decoration. They are what it says on the tin: good, reliable general builders.
I first contacted Tony through CheckaTrade about a year ago to fit soffits and fascias to one of my properties when another, larger, contractor had let me down badly. As a landlord who lives quite far away from their properties, it was important to me that I had someone who was trustworthy and reliable. Since that first contact, Tony has gone on to do a number of jobs for me; both externally and internally - on both my properties. I have been more than happy with the work, which has always been of a very high standard. The price has been reasonable too.
We are very happy with the work you carried out in our property, which included replacing the flat roof to the balcony and the capping off of the disused chimney. We also asked you to lay promenade tiles - which have completely transformed the balcony. In addition, the plastering and related carpentry work completed in the rear bedroom of the property and the laying of laminate floors in a number of rooms was also completed in a timely manner, and to a very high standard. The property was left clean and tidy at the end of the period of work, and when asked to complete extra tasks, this was readily agreed to. We sought your advice on a number of occasions about related work, and this was freely offered. We are very impressed with the professional attitude and the care taken with the work which was completed in a timely manner. We consider ourselves lucky to have found you, and will certainly ask you to complete further work on our property.
We have used Tony Dunn for both interior and external decorating, maintenance and repairs since we bought our house in 2009. Tony has also installed a new bathroom for us during this time. We have been extremely satisfied with the works that Tony and his staff have undertaken. Living so close to the coast brings many additional weather related problems, which Tony has always well understood - and been able to solve.
We employed Tony and his team to completely renovate a house that had been in our family for a long time and needed substantial work. This included new electrics and plumbing throughout, a new lintel, windows and porch, knocking through to create a large kitchen diner, and stud work to create a downstairs WC and handbasin, and a family bathroom upstairs. We also had the gable end of the house tied in and some remortaring with brickwork to move the existing backdoor, plus repairs to a verandah. To complete the fun, we also had significant damp in the house, which needed to be resolved and then re-plastered throughout. As I was looking after two small children at the time, and we had already sold our house to move, we looked to Tony to control the build, stay on time, on budget and deal with all the other trades working on the project. The build was completed on time and (allowing for our extras) on budget. The house was always left neat and tidy at the end of each day, and our neighbours never had cause for complaint. I would recommend Tony to anyone who has a large build to do; he was always available to talk to me, pleasant to deal with and all decisions were given to us in sufficient time to make our choices. We subsequently went back to him this year to sort out our leaking garage roof.
