"Last week Doug installed a new bathroom suite in just 5 days including tiling, painting and fitting all accessories. I am delighted with the finished result and the quality of work. I moved out of my house for the week and never once
went back to check how things were progressing - you can completely trust Doug to do the right thing.  I will have no hesitation in using Doug again for other work(he has already quoted for decorating hall, stairs and landing) and would
certainly recommend to friends and family. Thanks Doug I now have a lovely bathroom!"
Gill Pullen, Pinner
"Now that the major refurbishment work on my house has been completed, I am writing to thank you for the efficient and professional way in which the work was carried out, and for the high standard shown throughout."
Joseph H
"Doug has done various building projects for me over the last five years including a fabulous loft conversion with balcony, fitting a new bathroom and renovating a kitchen after a flood. I trust him absolutely - he does a great job, turns up to help with all sorts of even minor jobs when you need him - often at really short notice (!), has a team of specialists to call on if he needs to and is generally utterly lovely - and great with kids! 
I have recommended him widely to plenty of my friends - many of whom have employed him. Every home should have one - but make sure you get the coffee in! "
Liz Lowe, Harrow
"Originally recommended to me by a friend Doug came and demolished the parting wall between by W.C and bathroom, removed an obsolete brick flue to create more space and installed a new lowered ceiling incorporating low voltage down lighters.  He made good the walls, prior to fully tiling them, and fitted a new bathroom suite with seperate shower enclosure.
Theroughout the works, the team were always prompt, efficient and kept the job and the remainder of by house clean and tidy.  Very happy with the results and I have since employed their services again, to completely fit out my new kitchen, and I highly recommend them."
Edna Evans, Kenton


Yes I would certainly write a testimonial concerning your company’s excellent work at our house. Over a period of a few months this involved complete refurbishment of a kitchen, bathroom, downstairs cloakroom and the rebuilding of a heating boiler cupboard.

It is very rare nowadays that you can find a good builder who you can totally trust - and if you find one, I suppose you should encourage other people to use them – except my inclination is to keep him to myself.

So, if I really must, here goes:

Firstly, it is of f tremendous importance to me as a client to feel that I am not being taken advantage of. Let me say therefore that your estimate of the cost of work including labour, materials, and accessories was accurate. Only two minor exceptions occurred when the costs of light fittings and extraction fans had increased due to external factors beyond your control. However, this was more than offset by the savings made in taking your advice on kitchen units and electrical goods.

The other factor that I think is important was your word. During four months of work you never let me down. If you said that the work would start at 8 am tomorrow then that is when you would arrive.

If there is one negative it is this – you will not believe the amount of coffee that this man can get through in a day!

Seriously however, I have no hesitation in recommending Douglas Porter to anyone. He takes professional pride in his work and is always willing to offer sound advice on the minutest detail.
Dr Alan Timms, Northwood
 "Mr Doug Porter has carried out several jobs in my house involving decorating, plastering, flooring and oher building tasks.  I consider him to be a very good workman who produces excellent results. Further, and somewhat unusually for a modern workman, he consistently arrived at my house at the time and day he said he would."
DC Green, Pinner, Middlesex
"We have had two bathrooms and a guest WC installed by Doug Porter and his team. Their work is always of high quality and carried out with efficiency and cheerfulness"
