"I was very impressed to find the Hjaltland workman there, much sooner than I anticipated. What your colleague has done is marvellous! The clients are delighted and I think that what he has achieved has much exceeded their expectations. The handrail is actually a lovely bit of work and really quite attractive!"

"We are very happy with our new kitchen, I felt that I should email to make comment on the quality of the work of the two joiners and the chap that fitted the tiles. All three gentlemen have done outstanding work, as well as being extremely courteous, they worked in a clean and tidy manner. I would appreciate it if you would pass on our thanks for their excellent work."
