"DO NOT HIRE NEIL,
Neil Seemed like an honest tradesman. Signed a contract detailing the works. Once I'd paid over 3/4 of the price though he stopped showing up. The extension works was a long way from finished and has cost me much more than the remaining money owed to Neil. Shortly after leaving, the extension roof started leaking which I had to fix. The porch roof leaked during construction. I had to get an electrician in to sort out the mess that had been left. This cost almost £2000 alone. He obviously didn't get an electrician in and isn't capable of installing himself so don't know why he even tried. Countless more things wrong with the works and with no way of getting my money back he's put me in quite a bad situation.
Just want to warn anyone who is considering hiring Neil, to be extra vigilant as he does seem honest but will just leave a job if he thinks he's messed it up and there's too much to do to fix it. BE VERY CAREFUL"
