"Hired Idyllic for full refurb of an empty 4-bed property; he claimed he could turn it around in 4 weeks, I budgeted accordingly. After 7 weeks I had to get rid of him, as <10% of work had been done and what was done was to poor standard. There was no respect for my neighbours (demolition at 9pm!) or my property (walls knocked down without cutting the edges first, plaster literally thrown in splodges at the walls, keys left outside under the wheelie bin in the fornt garden to be collected at somepoint, he used a type of downlight that were a fire hazard where they were placed, new sockets and consumer unit covered in paint, plaster and cement, large windows left wide open). He constantly promised that everything would be finished on time and any issues would be sorted but they just made more issues. I tried to end it amicably and he promised a refund. The refund was as imaginary as all his other promises. I am now significantly out of pocket and have to remortgage to complete the work and repair the damage he did."
