Replacement of 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.

We have just had 7 new internal oak doors fitted by Mike, who has done an extremely professional job. They have been perfectly hung and look fantastic. Would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Replacing three internal doors

I am so glad I found Cove Carpenters. Mike gave me excellent advice throughout and did a brilliant job. His workmanship has been much admired in the couple of weeks since the job was completed. Very highly recommended.

New doors

Mike did a wonderful job with my new doors, and the new door handles are great. His attention to detail has left me a very happy customer, he even sorted out a metre cupboard door which wasn’t shutting for me. I would have no hesitation in recommending cove carpenters to anyone

Thank you very much mike.

Installation of 13 internal oak doors and finishing with varnish

Mike recently replaced all the doors in our house, thirteen in all. He helped us with the selection of all the required materials, suggesting more suitable or cheaper alternatives where appropriate. He arrived on the agreed date and time and was always punctual. He worked hard while with us and tidied up at the end of each day. The work was finished to a high standard and was completed inside the original time slot. Mike was always polite and considerate to the organisation of our home. We are totally satisfied with his work and have engaged him for another, smaller, project.

Replacing 8 internal doors

A big thank you to Mike, my new oak doors look great. A few of them were not standard size but after a lot of work they fit beautifully. Mike’s punctual, reliable and very easy to have around. Would highly recommend him.

Replacing internal doors

Mr Tricker includes the word specialist in his web page title, a label we believe to be fully justified on the basis of his work at our house. From the first quote to the completion of the job and the after sales follow-up Mike has been a true professional. Along with his obvious skill and knowledge he is a very pleasant and sociable man. At all times he was polite and courteous, punctual and kept us informed of his progress. The end result of his labours is very impressive and just what we were hoping for; Mike can be rightly proud of his work for us. We will happily engage him in future and are pleased to commend him to others.

Internal doors and interior wall work

Very happy to recommend Mike who is very friendly and professional and courteous. He came over to advise us about the best way to solve issues with our doorways and spoke in plain English and was clear and transparent on price options. During the project he went out of his way to keep the house clean which was important to us due to us having a newborn baby in the house and its very clear he takes a lot of pride in his work. Very pleased and would use again definitely!

2 Pairs of Internal Wardrobe Doors Replaced

Can see why Mike gets great feedback. Did a really good job, and price was spot on. Would come highly recommended from me.

Ian Thomas


Design and fit out of a “man cave”/ bar

This is the second time that we have used Mike for carpentry work and we were once again extremely pleased with the result. As well as being very skilled in his trade, he is punctual, reliable, clean and tidy and a true gent! Nothing seems too much of a problem. Highly recommended.

Design and install fitted wardrobes in 6 bedrooms

We are expats so communication during this 8 week job to design and install built-in wardrobes and a walk-in wardrobe in 6 bedrooms was never going to be easy. Or so we thought. Mike was highly responsive during the design phase and, as noted by many others, a delight to have around during frequent trips home. He was responsive to our changes and came up with a number of his own. Mike thinks deeply about his approach and takes a real pride in his work. We are truly delighted with the outcome and we will definitely use him again.

Installation of 14 internal oak doors

Mike has just finished installing 14 oak panel doors for us, four of the door openings were non standard so they had to be adapted to fit, Mike did a superb job of reducing these doors and finishing them with matching hardwood edgings to perfection. The work was finished on time and Mike arrived on time each day he carried out all the work with the minimum of disturbance along with a very pleasant demeanour. We would rate him as a top professional and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him.

Replacing internal doors and surrounds

Mike fitted 4 internal doors and replaced the surrounds. His cheery approach made having him work in the house hassle free and as others have written, he always ensured he stuck to his schedule and left the house tidy. He has been available for a small bit of advice re the doors and has already offered to come and make a slight alteration as part of the service he provides. I’ll be using him again for more doors and a bannister, which is probably the best kind of recommendation I could give.

Replacing internal doors

Mike fitted 9 new doors and replaced architraves for us and we are very satisfied with his work. He had to overcome the the vagaries of the way this house was built in the 60’s, and surprisingly maintained his cheery, happy demeanour throughout. Always arriving early to start on all four days, and never leaving until he’d completed the work he’d set himself that day – and tidied up. Some slight adjustments to a couple of doors were required after the job was completed, but he returned without delay and dealt with these without quibble. Highly recommended and we will use him again. Great personality, and fun to gave around the house.



MDF built-in wardrobes fitted into main bedroom

I hired Mike to build some MDF fitted wardrobes into our master bedroom.

Mike’s carried out a fantastic job for us which we’re really happy with. We changed the design slightly here and there as the project developed (number of shelves, door openings etc) and Mike was only too happy to oblige. He’s a perfectionist in his work and tidied up after himself every night leaving a clean comfortable space to live in.

Furthermore, he’s a very nice bloke, polite, chatty and pleasure to be around. I would definitely recommend him for a job. I know we’ll be hiring him again in the near future for further work to our house.

Supply & fit internal doors

We recommend Michael at Cove Carpenters. He was incredibly helpful and patient with us whilst we made decisions about our new internal doors. Michael always responded swiftly to our queries and completed a very tricky job efficiently and effectively. We will certainly use Michael again.



Repair to woodwork

I hired Cove Carpenters through My Builder and it was a positive experience. The call from Michael Tricker of Cove Carpenters was prompt. He Tricker came promptly, viewed the Job (which was expanded to include other work)

We found Michael Tricker to be honest, competent, he had all the equipment necessary, and the job was completed in a professional manner and to the price quoted. We will definitely be using Cove Carpenters again.


Fitting 5 Internal doors

Second time we have used Mike, first time for decking and out house, this time for fitting internal doors. He provided a friendly and reliable service, and is a conscientious, skilled tradesman. End result looks great, would use again.



Office carpentry

Michael fitted some cupboard doors in our office stock room. He provided an extremely efficient and friendly service with an outcome that we are very pleased with. I would thoroughly recommend Michael and Cove Carpenters to any one looking for carpentry work.



Laying a wooden floor

Mike has laid floors in several of our rooms. The quality of his work is excellent and when he has encountered problems he has found creative and effective solutions. He has also fitted custom-built doors & drawers in several pre-existing alcoves. I would recommend and will be using Mike again.



Internal door

I was very pleased with Michael’s work. He explained all the work up front and made sure I was happy with all aspects of the work prior to leaving. He even worked in the garden (despite the temperature) in order not to create too much dust and mess for my 8 month old.

Would recommend and will use again for other work.


Boxing and tiling WC room

Mike is a super guy and I would happily recommend him. He has worked to the remit and delivered as promised. Best endorsement I can give is Mike is coming back to do some other work for us!



Converting a shed into an office

Professional, reliable and hard working. Did a great job and helped out above and beyond the job quoted for. Will be using Michael again very soon.



Installation of solid wood flooring

Michael replied to my job post very quickly . He arrived the same day and after a survey gave me a very reasonable quote which i agreed to. Michael arrived prompt and early every day. Michael is very trustworthy and an honest person so much so I left him the key to my house to complete the work . His workmanship is excellent I would certainly hire him again and recommend him to my friends and family.



Move Home Office to another location in the Garden

Simply the best you can get, trustworthy, rates very reasonable and best of all highly skilled and takes pride in his work, and nothing is too much trouble. If you want the best hire Michael!!


Insulate pitched ceiling, finish with painted boarding

Insulate existing ceiling and then re-produce the same look as the original. Also install some double glazing units.

Mike was thorough from the start, preparing drawings of how the job would be approached and making templates for the window units. Mike demonstrated considerable attention to detail and has an eye for perfection, in a job that was not straight forward.

The end result is exactly what we asked for – it is in fact impossible to tell the difference between the original and the new, other than the room is now a lot warmer!

In addition, Mike was friendly and tidy – we will use him again.
