As a happy client I'm echoing much of Marie2018's post above...
Aria and the AFE Plumbing team recently re-plumbed, plastered, tiled, installed new basin/bath/loo, painted and floored my bathroom after was completely gutted to deal with extensive dry rot. The treatment (not done by AFE) was an extremely stressful experience, after which Aria's concern at getting the repairs and redecoration right for me was a breath of fresh air.
I paid exactly what he quoted for the job, which I think was very reasonable - plus materials, of course, for which he provided advance warning and receipts. There were costs that I hadn't expected, mostly due to the knock-on effects of the rot damage, but he outlined all the options for what needed to be done and worked with my choices. There was a slight hiccup resulting from an error made by one of the team but they were up-front about it and resolved the issue without fuss. I'm very happy with the final results.
AFE also re-did my kitchen (again, for a reasonable quote), parts of which were affected by wet rot. I believe this was their first big kitchen project but they've done an excellent job so I'd recommend them for kitchens too. The work involved stripping out the old cabinets, tiles and flooring, then plastering & painting, a new sink & plumbing, tiling, installation of flat-pack wall/base units & worktop and new vinyl flooring, while handling all the odd angles, uneven surfaces and surprise holes found in the typical Victorian property.
They identified issues with the electrical circuits which I suspected but hadn't got round to dealing with, and brought in an electrician who sorted them out and installed a new fusebox. The boiler also had some problems, which their gas engineer contact resolved without my having to get a new one. Both engineers were properly accredited, gave fair quotes and supplied certificates after the work. Again, I was kept informed about charges for materials and extra work in advance.
I appreciated Aria's daily updates on the work as I had to move out for the whole treatment and restoration process, also his patience in answering my questions during the works and following up afterwards. And I had complete confidence in the rest of the team, both when I was around and when I wasn't: Aria and Dan for the plumbing, the plasterer whose name I can't remember, Mark for tiling, installation of the kitchen units, flooring and some of the painting, Miles the electrician, Adam the gas engineer, John Wayne
for replacement of the laminate flooring in the hall and two other rooms, plus new skirting boards and painting - not forgetting Arron who cheerfully removed all the rubbish for (responsible) disposal. All thoroughly pleasant, hard-working people.
