Installation of 14 internal doors

We were (and remain) highly delighted in Mike’s work. The professionalism was evident from his first visit to confirm measurements, pointing us in the right direction on sourcing door furniture down to the details on suitable hinges for the doors that we had chosen. His approach is methodical and measured (literally!). The quality of his work has transformed our house. We would highly recommend him
