I manage the County Farms Estate in Norfolk on behalf of Norfolk County Council and we have employed Nick on two projects so far.
The first job Nick carried out for me was in 2011 and involved the repair of a thatched traditional farm barn at Tunstead. The second job was a complete roof replacement of a Grade II Listed bullock shed on a farm near Acle in 2012. On both occasions, I found Nick to be very professional, friendly and competent. He kept me informed of progress and liaised with the occupiers of the property. The work was completed to a very high
standard, within the time frame Nick had estimated and within budget. Both during the works and afterwards, the area around the building was left clean and tidy. He clearly has a detailed knowledge of his craft and a love of his work.
I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Nick to you as an honest and reliable contractor.

Nick did a wonderful job renewing our ridge just over a year ago. He is such a genuine enthusiastic craftsman, and takes great pride in his workmanship.I am confident he will do your work on time and within budget and make a splendid job of it.
I have no hesitation in recommending him.

In autumn 2017 Nick and his apprentice carried out a complete rethatch of my house and my neighbour's adjoining house. Nick has a naturally friendly disposition and as well as being a superb craftsman, he clearly enjoys his job enormously and is a perfectionist with regard to every aspect of his profession.
The roof looked wonderful when it was finished, visual proof that there's no substitute for many years experience. I feel very fortunate that my neighbour and I employed Nick to do our roof, we could not possibly have chosen anyone better.
I was extremely pleased with the end result and I would happily recommend him to everybody without hesitation.

“Thank you Nick and Ollie for an excellent job done in renewing the thatch on our cottage.
Every time we approach the cottage from over the hill we admire the transformation which has taken place and still get approving remarks from village residents and passers by. Not only was the work completed capably and professionally but Nick and Ollie were a joy to have around. We would thoroughly recommend their work to anyone. “
