TESTIMONAY OF THE WORK CARRIED OUT BY ARRON DARWEN JOINERY AND BUILDING SERVICES

Dear Arron,

I would like to take the time to give you a massive thank you in writing for your help on a recent signage project.

I went to visit my client and established she wanted something traditional which would entail some joinery work. Whilst I was with my customer at the initial meeting stage I telephoned you and you dropped everything and came to site straight away. With your input we effectively camp up with a cost effective solution which catered for my client’s needs. I am convinced that your dedication won Blackpool Signs & Graphics the job which was work well over £700 profit to my company.

The job was to take down and remove the existing rotten facia and to manufacture a new 6m x 1200mm timber fascia made from Marine grade WPB Ply with architrave surround.

The fascia looks fantastic and was carried out with little disruption to my client. The works were carried out quickly, efficiently and to a very high standard. You and your team completed the works on time and made our job very easy in regards to us fittingthe graphics and letters.

The finished job looks amazing, so much in fact that we are featuring the project in our new promotional video.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your company to family, friends and business contacts alike. Keep up the good work.

Kind Regards

John Leatherbarrow

Dear Arron,

John and I would like to thank you for the wonderful improvements you have mad to our home.

First of all we had a very old and heavy gate that was rotting and also hanging so heavily on its hinges that it was exhausting opening it as it dragged along the ground. You have replaced it with a very neat wooden gate that fits very well between the wonky wall of our Victorian house and I am pleased to say I can now open it without having to summon up Herculean effort! You also chopped up the old gate in to small pieces so we could burn it in our chimenea - and it's nearly all gone now. Just enough left for autumn evenings.

Secondly you replaced French windows in our living room and a small opening kitchen window that were both threatening to leave the house without help. These were replaced with white not exactly Victorian, do look fine with the style of the house.

Then you replaced the guttering at the front of the house, in fact replacing it right across ours and our neighbour (I'll not make a point of the fact she didn't offer to contribute...). I feel it's safe to park my car now without waking up in the morning to find a chunk of lead (or whatever it was made of) guttering sitting comfortably in the bonnet of my car.

All in all everything you have done for us has been really good in terms of quality, service and price. I can sincerely say that I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs similar work at their home or business premises (in fact I have already!)

Your sincerely

Janice Ryle

Dear Arron

I would like to thank you for the fantastic wardrobe you built in our bedroom in our new house.

It was always going to be a bit tricky scheduling the work because we were part exchanging our house In Poulton with a new house built by Taylor Wimpey in Wesham. You'd think it would be more straightforward than normal but it didn't turn out that way. We were meant to move in November but in the end It was 17th December, in the snow!

Anyway, you were prepared to move your other work around to accommodate our need for the work prior to Christmas and, apart from a few small issue, did that. The wardrobe look great, just as the one in the show house that you viewed.

So thank you.

Yours sincerely
Joanna Park

Dear Arron

I would like to thank you for the fantastic shelving unit you built in my music room.

I had measured up the space and the size of the shelving required to house my extensive collection of cassette’s, video’s, DVD’s, CD’s, vinyl’s and books. It was always going to be a pretty large unit.

We went for MDF and you and your colleague worked hard to construct the very large unit that was about 7 feet wide by 6 feet tall. The intention was for the unit to be bracketed to t;l1e wall but on construction it was so heavy that even you and your colleague struggled to lift it. So a compromise was quickly agreed where you would put some wooden legs under the unit, surround it with 2 by 2 supports at the top and sides and over the gap at the bottom with skirting board.

In the end the unit looks fantastic and I think probably better than it would have done if on brackets.

I've still got to paint it!

Yours sincerely
John Ryle

Dear Arron,

thank you for your outstanding efforts in creating a wonderful shelving solution for Charlotte and I. We gave you a difficult task and you delivered quickly, in budget and on time. You understood the brief and interpreted my design perfectly. In fact the alterations you made to the design only enhanced the look of the shelves. Not only were you on time, well mannered and very tidy, but most importantly the level of craftsmanship was excellent. We are very happy with the shelves and have no problem in recommending you to anyone requiring joinery services.

Thanks again

Mr H.

TESTIMONIAL ON BEHALF OF VOUCHER PACKS

I used Arron Darwen Joinery when I needed three floors replacing in my home-based office. As I was

Working from home at the time, Arron recognised I needed the job doing as quickly as possible.

He laid three solid wood floors and also needed to replace the joists and mend numerous other things we found when the floor was pulled up.

He was very quick, yet thorough, and managed to do the job within three days. He then made sure everywhere was clean and tidy when he left.

For such a young man it was an exceptional piece of building work in a short space of time.

I wouldn’t hesitate in using him for future work and recommending him to friends and family.

TESTIMONIAL ON BEHALF OF EMMA SHERWIN

Arron and his team rebuilt my staircase to the converted loft room. Prior it had been very a small set of stairs which were creaky, narrow and impractical. By rearranging the layout by knocking down a wall to create a bigger landing I now have a spacious and attractive landing with a wide and extremely well built staircase. We were kept updated no progress, consulted on options and ideas and the team were courteous and tidy throughout the week.

We would highly recommend Aaron and his team and have already booked him for the next job!

Many Thanks

Dear Arron,

I am writing to say a huge thank you for all the hard work you've carried out so far at our home. And yes, there's more to come!

We recently had to regretfully make the decision to remove a couple of stained glass windows in favour of practicality and efficiency - Booo, hiss - but it had to be done!  114 years old!

You did a fantastic job and the 3 pieces are now safely stored for future renovation.

The new windows look great. However, nothing is ever straight forward is it?

'Curved lintels, interfering boiler parts, one top window blocked in completely'

A fair bit to go at and you never faltered. A brilliant job all round.

I know who I now recommend for all sorts of situations, without hesitation - YOU.

Thanks again Arron

Yours sincerely

Tracy and Simon

TESTIMONAY OF THE WORK CARRIED OUT BY ARRON DARWEN JOINERY AND BUILDING SERVICES

Dear Arron,

You recently replaced the fencing to the front of my property and I have to say that for a young man making his way in business you were a great example that others of your age would do well to follow.

Punctual and courteous, you arrived at the arranged time and set about the work in a professional manner.

There were a number of challenges that made the work slightly more difficult than anticipated in that a neighbours car was parked only 2feet from the fence and the original fencepost had concrete foundations that appeared to go on forever. Neither of these problems seemed to bother you and just shrugged your shoulders and got on with the job in hand.

My experience of most trades people is that they do not hang around too long on a Friday afternoon but even though you had an importanmt football match to attend that evening, you and your trainee stayed until the job was completed.

Your workmanship was excellent and you left my garden clean, tidy and free from any rubbish or debris.

Thank you very much for the excellent job you have done and I would have no hesitation in using your services again or recommending your services to my friends and family.

Your sinscerley

TESTIMONAY OF THE WORK CARRIED OUT BY ARRON DARWEN JOINERY AND BUILDING SERVICES

Dear Arron,

I would say thank you for a really good job. I have been wating a while to have my gutters and down pipes replaced and when I could finally go ahead and get them done I went ahead and got a number of quotes for the job.

My friend Tracey highly recommended your services so I asked you to quote. Your quote was comparable to the best quote I had so far and because you were recommended I decided to give you the job.

You came to do the work when you said you would and completed the job in the time you said you would too.

My home now looks great and I look forward to being able to call you again in the future for a few remaining windows I need replacing to complete the maintenance free aspect to my house.

Thanks again for a great job and I would not hesitate to recommend your services in the future.

Dear Arron,

I am writing this letter by way of a thank you for the reception alterations you have completed in our Blackpool office. The alterations look great and bring a more welcoming and professional atmosphere to the office. All clients that have visited the office commented on the good job you have done.

The actual job did not go to plan as an aluminium dividing was not for being dismantled and required a complete removal, something neither of us had anticipated. But you were not fazed by it and proceeded to remove the offending item and build a new wall, counter and door in its place.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone for their joinery and general building needs as you not only completed your own work but organised the other trades also.

Once again, thank you

TESTIMONAY OF THE WORK CARRIED OUT BY ARRON DARWEN JOINERY AND BUILDING SERVICES

Dear Arron,

John and I would like to thank you for the work you did replacing the double glazed units to our kitchen window. What should have been a straight forward procedure turned out to be something of a headache for you but you coped with every setback quite admirably.

I'll not go through all the problems but will describe the day when you actually did the re-fit. All went well when removing the first failed unit but went a bit pear-shaped with the second. The top of the frame had dropped which meant that the unit was sticking behind the top frame. You and your apprentice tired for a long time to coax it out but in the end had to resort to the hammer technique and even took a while.

Then, once the failed units were out you'd have thought it would be plain sailing to fit the replacements. However, the sun chose to shine, normally a pleasant experience, bit in this case it was so hot (in March, yes) that it was melting your sealant strips so you had to scrape them off the windows and start again 3 times.

An unexpectedly challenging job for you but as always you came through is smiling and having done a great job.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely

Dear Arron,

Arron was recommended to me by Katrina to undertake the job of cladding the ceiling in my en-suite shower room, I have been let down several times before by other Joiners so was keen to get the job finished by someone professional and trustworthy. Arron was both of these things.

He was both polite and professional in my home and preserved with what turned out to be a more complicated job than first thought.

I now have a very nice cladding that I am more than happy with. I would certainly recommend Arron to friends and family alike.

Dear Arron,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the great job you did in building me a stand up desk for my new office. It looks great and the added storage space has de-cluttered my incredibly messy office so much so that it is now a very productive and pleasant work space.

I really appreciate your design input and advice, I gave you a basic idea and you came up with several solutions adopting them to the shape of the room and space available, you built the whole thing, including purchasing and cutting materials in a very short space of time with minimal fuss and mess, both you and your apprentice were very tidy both during the build and in cleaning up afterwards.

Even though this was as small job in comparison to other projects I know you have worked on your attention to detail and workmanship was great. I will not hesitate in recommending you to clients, family and friends for both large and small scale projects in the future.

Many Thanks
