Excellent Workmanship

Customer reference for REBS as told to pickapro by Paula from Dublin on 23-Oct-2008

When was the work done?
The work was started in late April and finished in early May, 2008.

What was involved?
We had a conservatory built about 5 years ago and we wanted a place that we would be able to put a table and chairs. John built a patio and deck for us.

How did you choose John McCormack?
John had been doing some work next door to my sister and he had a billboard outside with his name and number on it. My sister knew that I had been considering getting some work done and passed his number on to me. I called John, we met up and after explaining what I wanted done, decided to go with him. I was confident that John would do a good job.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to John McCormack?
Not really, no. I just knew that I wanted a patio that came out from the conservatory, somewhere permanent that I could put a table and some chairs. I didn't have any particular designs in mind, I just wanted John to give me some basic ideas to choose from.

Did John introduce new ideas?
He did, yes. In fact John was very good about making suggestions. We wanted to build over a shore than runs between the houses but were afraid to just in case there would be a problem with the shore later and we'd have to dig everything up again. It was John who made the suggestion of using decking cover the shore as that could be easilt move later. He also suggesteda larger patio than we had originally planned. Both ideas worked out very well. As far as the type of stone to use in the patio, John showed us photos of indian sandstone and took me to Roadstone to look at slabs. John made it easy to consider all options.

How did the project run?
Everything was grand. John was here early every morning and would continue until the work that had been planned for the day had been completed, sometimes until 8:00 PM. At the end of every day the site was tidied up and left neat. As far as workmanship, it was excellent.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using John McCormack?
His reliability. John did everything he said he would do and I couldn't have asked for more. When the project was finished and he was getting ready to leave, John told me to ring if there were any problems at all. He even rang twice himself to make sure that we were happy.

What's your favourite part now?
I love the patio. The decking is nice but my favourite part of the project is the patio. It's a lot bigger than originally planned and we're delighted that it is.

Would you recommend John McCormack to others?
I would yes, Definitely

Any tips for other people?
Before you invest your time and money in something you will have for a while, have a good think about what you want and talk to people who have had similar work carried out.
