Customer reference for REBS as told to pickapro by Rhonda Evans from Kilmainham on 09-Sep-2007

When was the work done?
End of July, early August 2007.

What was involved?
We had some decking and paving work done in the back garden.

How did you choose John McCormack?
Word of mouth from someone John had previously done work for. When he consulted with my husband and I, we liked his manner and how he came across. You get a good feeling about some people. We were also impressed with the professional drawings he was able to show us. It made things much easier to visualize.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to John McCormack?
We did have a definite plan, yes.

Did John introduce new ideas?
He did. At first we thought we would go with square decking out back but John recommended an octagonal shape with a matching bench. We liked the way the drawing looked, he built it and my husband and I are very happy with how it came out.

How did the project run?
Very good. John is very reliable. Both my husband and I are gone during the day and don't have time to hang around. I gave John a key and never had any problems. He was always at the house when he said he would be.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using John McCormack?
We live in a house that was built in 1878. In the last 3 years we've had lots of renovation work done and dealt with quite a few contractors. Some have worked out but many haven't. It was a pleasure to work with someone like John. His drawings make choosing the right design easy, he's very reliable and he allowed us to pay on completion of the project. We didn't have to pay a deposit up front which is important to my husband and I because we've been burned in the past. John made everything easy for us.

Would you recommend John McCormack to others?
I would yes, absolutely. We already have in fact.

Any tips for other people?
When you bring in tradespeople to do work, you need to lay down strict guidelines as to what is wanted before the work starts. Drawings are important not only for the homeowner but for the contractor as well. It lessons the chance for miscommunication between the two. What I have in my head may not be what someone else is imagining. You should research the materials you want used on the job and make this clear to the person doing the work.
