We are writing to confirm that we recently employed Richard Ottridge to undertake some carpentry work whilst we were refurbishing our home.  The work included supplying and fitting new architraves, skirtings, building cabinets to house energy meters and laying a solid timber floor.  All of the work was carried out to a very high standard in accordance with previously agreed timescales and costs.  We would not hesitate to recommend Richard on account of his workmanship and professionalism. Mr. and Mrs. Chadwick - Sutton Coldfield 

I got in touch with Richard from a flier thru the door and am very pleased I did. He has fitted locks to several doors, repaired others and also taken out units in the kitchen and plumbed in my washing machine. He always arrives when he says he will and gets the job done in good time. His rates are reasonable and his work is of high quality. I can definitely recommend Richard. J. Hunter - Edgbaston  

Richard recently sorted out my diy fitted wardrobe problems and actually made them work. He also fitted all the skirting to the bedroom and rehung a door so it closed at last! He did all this quickly and efficiently. He arrived on time and was polite and friendly. He got the jobs done in the time he had estimated and charged me a fair price. I would recommend him. Chris.

Richard measured up, ordered and delivered the materials on the date agreed. He was punctual, tidy and paid attention to detail. He achieved the overall aim of the job which was to keep the kitchen and rest of the house warmer and draught free. His work was very good and he finished it in reasonable time at a good price. I would thoroughly recommend him. S. Alexander - Sutton Coldfield.

Richard has recently decorated, varnished floors and re-hung doors in my house. He is extremely reliable, tidy and hard-working. I have received compliments on the quality of his work and have had no hesitation in recommending him to friends. Cally - Harborne

Having bought an Ikea curtain system for an awkward bay window I got home to realise that this was not going to be the simple bit of 'DIY' I had imagined. A friend of mine recommended Richard and I'm so glad she did. Richard was polite, tidy and managed in a jiffy what would have taken me all weekend before I'd made a total pigs ear of things! Thanks again Richard! Mr K. Bearwood

Richard supplied and fitted curtain rails for me and on another occasion supplied and fitted a door.On a third occasion Richard fitted new kitchen cupboards. Richard was polite, tidy and offered reasonable rates. He turned up on time which is unique for a tradesman these days! I have recommended him to neighbours who have also been pleased with his work. I would recommend Richard to anyone without hesitation. Graham Webster - Selly Park
