5Star review from 30 reviews

Replaced entire garden fence 5Star review Job completed to the highest quality and at a very competitive price. 2 days work but everything kept tidy throughout the job. All old fencing removed. So pleased I have booked ACIH in to relay my patio which has become dangerously uneven. Recommend highly

Entire Garden Fence Replacement 5Star review Excellent job all round; full fence replacement with high quality materials and including installation of a deck. Whole team were tidy and considerate in their work, removed all debris carefully through the house with the minimum of mess, and left the site in good condition. Very happy with end product. Would definitely recommend.

An excellent job 5Star review An excellent job from David with our new garden gate and fence. Very good at finding solutions to any problems, and excellent and thorough workmanship. No skimping on post depth, foundations, etc. Job should be good for 30+ years.

Great work 5Star review I can thoroughly recommend David. He is meticulous and painstaking - and also, which I value greatly, consults you and discusses the options rather than just doing what's easiest for him.

5Star review Really pleased with the work done which saved me money as he was able to repair the door rather than buying a new one as I previously been told. The work was a good standard, David came when he said he would and kept me informed with progress. I’d highly recommend him.

Fence building 5Star review I used David to build a fence outside my house, across a part of uneven land - he was great at getting in touch quickly, had great ideas about how to do my job and got on with it. The work is a really high standard and it was a competitive price - very easy to recommend.

Summer House repairs 5Star review We are very pleased with David's work, our summer house and shed needed new roofing, guttering and rehanging of the doors, plus some new preservative on the outside. David is extremely competent and I would not hesitate to recommend him! Thanks David.

Highly recommend 5Star review We found David's details on LYDS when we needed someone to repair a damaged fence. He was quick to quote, competitively priced and did a great job. The new fence looks fantastic, sturdy and strong. David is a good worker and does a solid job. We highly recommend him and would definitely use him again.

Fence panel replacement 5Star review David replaced a post and fence panel for us. He was friendly, helpful and professional, and did a very good and tidy job at a reasonable price. He also remedied a less sturdy fencing job done by a previous builder, and obviously knew what he was talking about when he explained the shortcomings of the earlier work! I have no hesitation in recommending him, and will call on him again again in future.

a broken bed 5Star review david annesley done a brilliant job on my daughter bed would highly recommend him and was well worth the money ,

Purpose-built fence round wheelie bins 5Star review David designed and built an L-shaped fence with finials as a shelter for my wheelie bins. This involved sinking posts into mixed terrain and avoiding pipes and cables in a restricted space. The fence looks great, there is plenty of room to keep the wheelie bins and they are shielded from view. David is very knowledgeable, hard-working and friendly. I have no hesitation in recommending him. I am sure I will be calling on his skills again.

Comment graphicKay Dudman  26 Jun 2014

Knowledgeable, friendly, honest and hardworking 5Star review Asked David to assess some ongoing issues with my roof and he carried out a no obligation investigation. Very reasonable quotes and is hugely knowledgeable and skilled with many aspects of building. Roof works still ongoing due to weather but he has since rebuilt and repaired by external brick stairwell (even managing to salvage and reuse all of the original brickwork) and it looks fantastic now. He's coming back to build a big decked area in my sloping garden and build a big prefab shed for me. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. Very good quality of work, well priced and above all works extremely hard and tidies up after himself.

Fence - great job 5Star review David did a great job replacing our fence. He was very pleasant, informative and reliable. I would certainly recommend him.

Comment graphicDeborah  15 Apr 2014

Would recommend David 5Star review We needed a patio, fencing and a cabin erecting, David was very obliging, it was not an easy or straightforward job especially as he started in the autumn, with the rain etc. but most days unless the weather was really awful he turned up and worked really hard. Job complete and we are very pleased, he was very neat and tidy in his work, always clearing up after himself at the end of the day, good competitive rates and excellent quality of materials he used, i.e. fencing, posts etc. Would employ him again no hesitation and recommend him.He is family, so could have been awkward if all went wrong but I had every faith in his honesty, integrity and workmanship etc.

Comment graphicHelen Annesley  15 Apr 2014

excellent result and pleasant manner 5Star review We asked David to paint our bathroom and front door. He did an excellent job, very neat and tidy. Beautiful end result. We had chosen an oil based paint for the front door that went completely wrong. David helpfully suggested another paint and did the front door again for us. We will be using David again in the future and will recommend him to anyone looking for a good and knowledgeable handyman for small and bigger jobs.

Comment graphicHilde  11 Apr 2014

Completely honest and trustworthy 5Star review Excellent experience with David Annesley - completely helpful and trustworthy. I called David to ask him to come and do a small job for me, which he said he would be happy to do, or he could talk me through how to do it myself to save me money. His advice was excellent - he really knows his stuff. I am still stunned at how helpful he was despite the fact he didn't earn any money from me. I will definitely be using David again and happily refer him to anyone.
