We previously had Acute Carpentry carry out some smaller jobs on our property, which were completed to a very high standard. This meant that they were an obvious choice when we decided to begin gathering quotes for the full renovation and extension of our home.

During the tender process they were very open and transparent. They laid out their pricing in such a way that enabled us to fully understand everything that was included and excluded. Like any project of this size, there were further items that we wanted in addition to the original price. Acute would provide a quote prior to carrying out any additional work, so we fully understood any additional costs. As well as this, we had regular meetings with Paul throughout the process to ensure that we were on track.

The finish of the house was exactly what we had imagined and we are extremely happy with the quality of the workmanship. Paul was meticulous when it came to ensuring that we got the finish we wanted. His team were also friendly and reliable and certainly share Paul’s passion for putting the customer first.

I would recommend Acute to anyone wishing to undertake the smallest job to the complete renovation of a property.

On meeting Paul on the initial site visit my husband and I found him to be very knowledgeable and immediately interpreted the plans and our vision for the loft conversion and subsequent alterations.

The work carried out is to a high standard and Paul and Steve worked together very well As with any old house some unexpected challenges were thrown up but Paul dealt with these and ensured that we were happy with the measures needed to overcome these.

Some additional work was need by other trades and Paul sourced this for us and again these tradesmen did a great job.

We are very please with Acute Carpentry and would be very happy to recommend them.

I asked Paul Prior, of Acute Carpentry, to look at an upstairs room where I needed a fitted wardrobe and give me a written estimate as to the cost of building it. This he did quickly and efficiently and I later engaged him to do the work as it was a reasonable price.

The actual work turned out to be quite intricate as the wardrobe had to fit within a space formed by the ceiling coming down at a steep angle to the wall and floor necessitating several of the surfaces to be cut at forty-five degrees rather than straight so that they all fitted closely to the original surfaces.

Paul overcame all these problems as well as those caused by uneven floor and ceiling surfaces to create a two door wardrobe with two cupboards to the side, one fitted with shelves. He took extra trouble to ensure that the whole unit looked neat and uniform, the doors opening and closing neatly and fitting well.

He was able to advise me as to the finishing with paint and did a very good job of tidying up both the room where he had been working and the garden where he had cut the mdf to size.

I am very happy with the result of his labour and expertise and would recommend him.

Paul Prior (Acute Carpentry) fitted picture rails throughout my house in Jericho. He did an excellent job. He listened carefully to what was wanted, measured up accurately, and fitted the rails neatly and professionally taking care not to damage any nearby furniture or fittings. He was reliable, prompt and trustworthy. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
