I have hired the services of a carpenter numerous times before but never felt completely happy with the ones I used. This is generally fine as I don’t need one very often but when my wife told me we were getting a new kitchen (!) I knew I was going to have to find a decent carpenter to do the job for me.
First things first, I asked all my friends if they could recommend me someone who had done dome good work for them but no one could. I had drawn a blank in my quest. This lead me to the internet. Seeing as I was looking for someone local, I decided to search Google so I type in ‘Solihull carpenter‘ and phoned a few of the guys that had displayed in the results.
I arranged for two tradesmen to come over to my home and offer me some advice, have a general chat and supply a quote. The first guy Alan was good, he talked through a couple of options and said he would get back to me with a quote.
The second guy was Jon from Fahy Carpentry Services. He came over and spend a lot of time discussing various ideas and designs and gave me and the wife some really good ideas. He seemed like a pretty expert kitchen fitter as he could talk to us about different pros and cons of particular brands of kitchens and he told us loads about different woods and worktops.
Jons quote was a little more than Alans but we decided to go with Jon as he gave us a really good feel and some sound advice. We did not regret it. Jon did a first class job with my kitchen and he will be first on my list for a quote when I finally get round to boarding my loft later in the year. I am now a lifetime customer!
