Won't Leave Until It's Right

Customer reference for Fox Home Improvements as told to pickapro by Siobhan Ransom from Baldoyle on 17-May-2017

When was the work done?
September 2016.

What was involved?
We renovated the whole downstairs of the house- the kitchen, the floors, the doors. We got it insulated and plastered. Some of it was rewired. As the carpenter on the project, Gintaras did 99% of the work, including installing pocket doors. We started off with a very old style house with small little rooms, and now it's completely open plan and very bright.

How did you choose Gintaras?
How it came about was that we used a building company recommended by my sister for the project and Gintaras was the carpenter on the job.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to ?
No. Actually we were only planning on changing the kitchen. But as we looked around and started talking, more ideas came up like changing the doors, knocking out the walls, changing the whole flooring. Now the whole downstairs is open-plan. So, it's completely different to what we originally started with!

Did Gintaras introduce new ideas?
Yes, he was very good on that side. For example, part of the kitchen is quite dark and he suggested putting a big mirror up to reflect the light. He was very helpful, helping us chose the size and proportion of the mirror we could get. Gintaras has a good eye.

How did the project run?
Gintaras is very good. He would be here at quarter to 8 and would work until 4.30. He would tidy everything up before he left so it didn't feel too much like a building site during the project. Also, Gintaras is very detail oriented when it comes to the finish. He won't leave something until it looks right.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Fox Home Improvements?
The biggest benefit to me was that if you wanted to change something, Gintaras would do it. And he'd do it without any issue or any reluctance whatsoever.

The other thing I liked about Gintaras was if I had any ideas or I wanted to change something, he was happy to stop and listen and to help me work through my idea. He'd listen and he'd explain it what he'd need to do. He never got irritated. He's very friendly and he'll talk you through everything. He's just really, really good.

What's your favourite part now?
It's all lovely. It's really open and bright now.

Would you recommend Fox Home Improvements to others?
Yes, and I have. I believe he's going to do some work for my sister-in-law. I think he's absolutely fabulous.

Any tips for other people?
The only thing I would say is to shop around for everything you need. We really researched all the fittings a lot and it does save you money.
