Professional but Friendly

Customer reference for LMD Developments as told to pickapro by Ann O'Brien from Irishtown, Dublin 4 on 26-Aug-2012

When was the work done?
The first bit of work was about ten years ago and the most recent was August, 2012. In between there's been bits here and there.

What was involved?
The first time I dealt with Lee and his father was ten years ago when my husband wanted to take the chimney out to make more room in the house. We ended up getting cowboy builders who didn't put any reinforcement in the attic for the removed chimneys. I got Lee to go up there and have a look. Lee told me what the situation was and put girders in that was so neatly done you wouldn't even know they were there, it was perfect.

Another job was when water was leaking into my house from the roof. Leaves had clogged things up on my roof and all the rain was going through a small hole. I had a few guys out to take a look and they were up there dancing on the roof and then telling me how much damage there was and how much it will cost to fix. Lee on the other hand had a look and saw that it was only a pinhole that needed to repaired, hardly any cost at all. Certainly not the 1,000 euro the others were saying.

On the job that was just done in August, I asked Lee if I needed a new slated roof as it was 20 years old. Lee said no and that it would be OK for a few more years, it just needed tidying up. There was moss on it and the chimney pot had flowers growing out. Lee tidied it up, put new tiles at the edge and silver coated the felt.

How did you choose LMD Developments?
I knew about Lee and his father being builders from his sister who was my hairdresser. At that time I was getting quotes and some of them to fix a small leak were 2,000 Euro, it was insane. Lee took a look at what the situation was and gave me a sensible, reasonable quote.

Did Lee introduce new ideas?
They just tell you the truth. They're nice, talk to you about what's wrong and what they can do and come back with a price. It's all very professional but friendly.

How did the project run?
Great. I found in Lee someone that will come in, look over the situation, give you a quote and a day they can start. When Lee says they're going to start on a certain day they start that day, when he says they'll be finished at three o'clock, you can count on it. Lee and his team are nice, they work neatly and best of all, they don't swindle you. With regards to the roof work he did for me last week, my god you go out and it looks like a whole new roof, it's so clean and tidy.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using LMD Developments?
Lee and his family are open, honest and tell you the truth, I know I'm not being ripped off from them. When Lee probably could have convinced me to get a new roof, he didn't. He told me it just needed a good cleaning, a bit of repair and it would last a few more years. The roof looks as good as new now.

Would you recommend LMD Developments to others?
I would highly recommend Lee to anybody and I know around here that a lot of other people get him as well. I actually keep his number on my fridge. Lee has put my trust back in some of the builders after some cowboys had given them a bad name.

Any tips for other people?
The only tip that I can give someone is to get Lee McDougal.
