Worth & Co
26 Christchurch Road, Southend on Sea, SS2 4JS
01702 467581,
This is a small but old-established firm located in premises at the back of some houses. They provided an excellant awning, the same German make as supplied by some nationwide companies but at one-third the price. Don't be put off by their premises.

C & C Bath and Tile Studio, 12C, West Station Yard, Spital Road, Maldon, Essex, CM9 6TS - 01621 851267
They did a good job on our bathrooms - efficient and obliging. However, they asked for 90% of the cost up front, which we considered unreasonable. They accepted 50% - 10% deposit plus 40% when they started.

1 Stop Building Services
01702 613991 Paul 07880705186 Jason 07809833671
1 Stop not only repaired and corrected the problem with the shower but also repaired and plastered, painted and put in new flooring in the dining room. I recommend them not only because of the professional approach to their work but also on the quality of the end result which I found to be outstanding and of the highest standard. The works were also carried out cleanly, tidily, efficiently, always professionally and they came on time on the day they specified they would (all factors that have been a problem with others). To add to this, I felt extremely comfortable having this team of professionals in my home. They were courteous, friendly, trustworthy, worked very hard and finished the job on time as promised.

Painter and Decorator
Kingsley Belton. KMB Decorators.74 Brockenhurst Way, Bicknacre, CM3 4XW.
07827 481825,
I can recommend Kingsley. He has carried out external painting previously. Recently he has redecorated some rooms. I found him reliable and trustworthy - Sheila and I could confidently leave him in our house while we kept appointments. His estimates are reasonable and his work excellent. I believe he has carried out work for other residents in Chalklands.

A Conway Plumbing (Adam), 01245 358611
Some of my recent experiences with plumbers have been anything but positive; Adam has singlehandedly restored my faith in human nature (well for now anyway) by being prompt in response, reliable, professionally efficient in carrying out the jobs I needed done and charging very reasonable fees too. I am having him back to replace a bathroom suite shortly (so form an orderly queue behind me, now ... : > )

I can endorse that recommendation. He did a small job for us for a reasonable price and did a good job.
