“Martyn has just spent 8 weeks cleaning and repairing the stone on the front of our house. He has done a fantastic job and we are really pleased – several of our neighbours have proactively commented on how great the house now looks. He was always good at communicating and offered advice and a pragmatic approach to some of the dilemmas we uncovered once the paint was removed. He was always friendly and worked very hard through some bitter winter days. We would not hesitate to recommend Martyn. “

“We have been extremely pleased with the work Martyn has done cleaning and repairing the stone work on our house, we have had many compliments. Martyn was a pleasure to work with: he was accommodating, communicated well, worked cleanly and tidily (as far as he could!), and completed the work on time at a competitive price. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.”

“Martyn has done an exceptional job on our house. He undertook a full clean of the front stonework and repointed the back of our house in Clifton. Piecemeal stone replacement was also undertaken and the new sections of bath stone blend in well. The property looks great and we found Martyn to be punctual, efficient, tidy and easy to deal with. I would thoroughly recommend his work. As a one man band who does is not VAT registered he also offers great value for money.”
Stone Fronted House
Our Bath stone fronted house was painted by a previous owner and the paint was in a poor state. Thanks to Martyn’s knowledge and skill it is now fully restored to its former glory. He dressed the stone, removing the top layer, and with it the failing paint job, and raked it back to a smooth finish. He also carried out a number of repairs to the stonework that blend in beautifully. He gave us lots of good advice and was very accommodating when we had to postpone due to covid and work commitments and left everything clean and tidy at the end of each day, and at the end of the job. It would probably have been cheaper and quicker to get the house repainted, or to have the paint steamed or sandblasted off, but I am so glad we decided to get the job done properly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Martyn to anyone who values the work of a real craftsman.
