Pippa and Howie Drake: Nothing's a problem

We first came across Mick in 2008, as a sub-contractor to the builders who were extending our 1930s house.  Mick dealt with all of the plumbing-related work, including re-locating the boiler, and managed to keep the central heating and hot water going throughout the project, which was essential as the works took place from December to May and, for part of that time, one quarter of the first floor was suspended on steels.

We asked for a sink to fill the kettle and, if possible, a plumbed-in washing machine for the duration of the works.  Mick moved these plus the dishwasher into the Hall.  The boiler only stopped once – when other contractors taped over its exhaust to protect it whilst doing the pebble-dashing (and then forgot to remove the protection), and Mick came round immediately to find out what was wrong.

In January 2011, on return from holiday, we discovered that rats had gnawed through some of the new sewage pipework (specified by the architect, and supplied by the main contractor, as adhering to British standards).  Despite ringing on a Saturday afternoon, Mick answered the ’phone immediately, and was at the house first thing on the Monday morning with replacement, heavier-duty pipework. 

He has recently fitted thermostatic valves to all of our radiators. 

We would not hesitate to recommend Mick for any building work – and, indeed, have done so to a number of friends.  Nothing’s a drama.  He is one of the most competent and reliable people that we have ever encountered.  And a pleasure to have working in one’s home.  We cannot commend him more highly.

Paul & Chris Jeffreys : Highly recommend MKN Services

We would not hesitate to recommend Mick and have done so many times with the happy result of friends being totally satisfied with his excellent workmanship and reliability.

We have always been delighted with his professionalism and perfectionism which he displays in his work.

He has undertaken many projects for us including:-

a new kitchen, new bathroom, the hanging of glass doors in our hall (no mean feat!) and has also helped us out when we have experienced problems with plumbing etc.

He has never let us down and we cannot stress highly enough that in these days, a craftsman of Mick’s calibre is not easy to find.

Caroline Jackson: Mick is a Perfectionist

I used MKN Services for the design of my garden.  I have since called them back for new projects. No job is too big.

Ask Mick to make you something, ANYTHING and he can build it.  I wanted a sweet cart for my party.  I contacted Mick and in a very short space of time he built me the best sweet cart.  Mick is a perfectionist.  He enjoys a challenge and this is reflected in his work.  And to top it all, his prices are very reasonable.

One Happy Client.

Paul and Caroline Jackson: Surpassed our Expectations

MKN Services were fantastic to deal with from start to finish. 

We contacted Mick to help us with the huge overgrown area in our garden.  We had no idea what to do with it .  Mick had some fabulous ideas and we ended up with a raised decking area with a bespoke summer house with a built in bar.  We are thrilled with our transformed garden. 

We are impressed with the careful and tidy way they carried out the work, from clearing the area to the finishing touches. The speed with which they work and the high standard of work and craftmenship is exceptional.  We would be pleased to recommend MKN Services to any prospective client and have already passed on details to others who have seen his work.  It’s not easy to find contractors who have such skills.  Mick and his team surpassed our expectations in every way.
